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.)

    • @tertia - kind of a late response to this, but that's is a very nice rose. Very bold and solid. Congrats!
    • @Charmed– I'm definitely a fan of large pieces and heavy coverage. But I have to say that there is sometimes something very dramatic about a single well-placed tattoo, and yours falls into that category. It is like a single painting hanging in the middle of a wall, it sort of focuses the eye. Very pretty! That being said, the wrapping idea sounds nice. Alternatively, since you seem to be inclined to get more tattoos, maybe you could move to another part of your body for your next piece, and let this one sit for a while as you ponder ideas for your leg. As @Hogrider said, think about where you want to go with your leg. Do you want an integrated large piece, or a collection of pieces?
