Help! Tattoo has been positioned wrong!

Recommended Posts

I recently got a traditional Sak Yant in Thailand. However, soon afterwards realized it wasn't positioned correctly meaning it looks really odd compared to the one i have on the other side. I have been desperately trying to think what i can do to fix this, but my mind has gone blank. Please help!! any suggestions would be great!

I wouldn't question the placement by a master.

If you're concerned with symmetry you could get the other one laser removed and then a symmetrically-placed coverup.

In other words, change the surroundings to fit the traditional piece.

I think it's positioned correctly...

And also, symmetry is overrated.

When I was in Spain earlier this year, I saw many people with e.g. one arm full of tattoos and very little on the other arm, and it looked pretty good. (Although, admittedly, it did start to look almost cliched as so many people had that style.)

I think it looks fine. I mean, they are two different tattoos, they don't have to be symmetrical. At least that's my oppinion.

    • sounds good ! don't forget to pre-hydrate tonight(water) ,and also before the tattoo be sure and eat a full healthy meal.The sweets and bananas are  perfect ! bring a few bottles of water to drink during the tattoo.remember to relax and you will do fine.
    • I'm getting my first tattoo in 12 hours! I've even traveled for it and I'm super excited. The artist said it'd take 7 hours and I really hope that it isn't 7 hours of straight tattooing.. I've packed sweets, two bananas, a book and a switch so I hope that'll be plenty of sugars and entertainment. Now to hope that I can sleep now that the time to get the tattoo is almost here! I'll be getting a sword and a bird in the black illustrative style, but I haven't seen the design yet. I can't wait!
    • Hey everyone. First post! I recently got my 10th tattoo. It’s right below my knee on the back of my calf. Today, 2-19-19 is day 10. As you can see the tail is healing really rough. It stared getting scabbed up on day 3. I’m doing what I’ve always done- wash 2-3 x a day. Then lotion with aveeno after. I’m worried it may be infected. It’s itchig/ kind of hurts which is probably normal but that redness is worrisome. What do you guys think? Any advice is appreciated. The last pic is what it looked like on Thursday (day 4)
