Advice on existing tattoo

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. 

I’d like your opinions on this please. I’m booked in to continue with my arm, at the end of September. He’s a great artists, and works at a high profile shop. It’s recently been pointed out to me that part of a rose, I’ve already got, is a bit “penis like!” If you can’t see it, then great! It’s in the center and It is bugging me a little. Funny though, I’d never noticed it before and it’s 3-4 years old! 

Basically, shall I live with it, or ask if there’s anything that can be done at my next appointment? What do you all think?

Okay, did someone tell you that it looked like a penis or did you get the idea all by yourself? 

Yeah seriously, it was mentioned! In fact the same person said it twice. I thought nothing of it the first time, but had a look the second, and thought, “yes, it does indeed look like a penis”!!!  I’m not at all the obsessive type, but thought I’d get some opinions!

Dude...it doesn't look like a penis. Slap your friend. 

Haha! I can’t really slap the person. I live with her, and she’s the mother of our children!!

That's really rude to do that to someone. To do it twice is just gauche. I'd tell her to knock it off. As @scottyg said, if someone has a enough of tattoos and you look hard enough, you'll find something phallic.  

It was never said in a nasty way! Just a bit of husband and wife banter! Like I said, it hasn’t bothered me that much! It seems phallic tattoos are quite common around here, then! I appreciate people’s oppinion on the matter...

the only two options i like are to 1) leave it as is or 2) blackout the part that looks like a penis 😉

 

I have considered the blacking out option. It would depend on what the artist thinks... the only reason why it’s an issue to me is because it’s part of a piece I had done for our first son.... most people here seem to think leave it though.....

my bad. the blackout suggestion was a joke in reference to another recent thread. ignore me and leave the rose alone. it looks fine.

I see what your friend was saying, unfortunately.. You have 2 options:

accept it, like it

get it covered, or talk to a cover-up artist

Only you can decide.. Does it bother you so much that you think about it daily? Get it covered. No? don't worry about it.

Leave it. can be a private joke for you and your wife. I doubt anyone else will think it unless you say anything. Also you and your wife will be the only people who ever look at it in that much depth anyway,. 🙂

    • Have an eagle on the back of my arm and some daggers on the side. I plan on doing an all black/grey patchwork sleeve. Wanting ideas for my upper arm as I’m not sure what to get. 
    • try https://saniderm.com/       I use the https://saniderm.com/product/personal-size-10-2-in-x-2-yd-roll/     I have been using it for several years now on many tattoos, and this shit works great !  put it on 24 hours after the tattoo and leave it on for 4 or 5 days, take it off and it's healed.  you can sleep, wear any clothing, shower, whatever with it on. the first 24 hrs after the tattoo I use cocoa butter and saran wrap,wash it with anti-microbial soap every few hours, wash it once more, dry it with clean paper towels, apply the saniderm on clean dry skin. BAM  be sure and carefully shave the area to be tattooed and for several inches around it so the saniderm sticks good.   that's my method, I have been getting tattooed for many many years and have tried EVERYTHING over the years,and IMO this is the best way.
    • I have 12 tattoos and my last few have healed so badly that I am reluctant to get anymore done. I stick to the healing routine everytime using mild anti bacterial wash 2/3 times a day, make sure it is dry before I add a pure moisturiser. I used to use bepanthan but no matter how well I air dried it, it still gunks up. I then tried just coconut oil which is better but im still not healing well. My last 5 tattoos have been colour and I'm wondering if this may be the issue. So desperate to find a reason for it as I absolutely love my tattoos and have so many more I have spent a lot of time designing that I want done. Maybe I am destined to only get black fine line ones.
