Intro/ request for advice

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am new to this site, and new to tattooing in general (I have 3 now).  I recently got a new tattoo from the same shop I got my other two at. I really like the artist and the shop, I am a little worried about my newest tattoo. There is some ink creepage/blowout.

 

heres a pic of it right after I got it and then one from today (about a month later).  My main concerns are: the line blowout on the dot of the i, the letter k, and the inside of the letter o.  There’s also a small line extending from one of the leaves of the olive branch that looks like a bit of creepage.

 

is this a normal amount of blowout, or should I be worried about the artist’s work?  Is there anything I can do about it, like thicken the lines, or is it best to just let it go? 

 

I appreciate any and all input and advice, so thanks!

Hey, overall nice tattoo. There could be a few little issues but in my humble opinion, no one will notice except you. Talk to the artist to get their input. Sadly, blowout happens for a variety of reasons including skin type. I think it looks okay but tattoos are not perfect. 🙂

Tattoos are not perfect. Even the most beautiful tattoo you've ever seen has flaws. Funny thing is probably you are the only one who notices. Nobody will look at your tattoo that closely nor will look at your tattoo five minutes straight.

Seriously, it looks great 🙂

    • QQ for you - how big is the Higg's piece? Would you be sitting for over 2 hours? I'd say if you really feel good and it's on your arm, I'd go for it but don't bullshit yourself on how good you THINK you feel. Be really honest with yourself. No sense in crashing yourself if you really don't think that you are up for it!
    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance.
