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 🙂

    • @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?
    • I'm a month shy of 25y/o.  I'm just not a movie guy; I'm a comic book and punk guy.  I also like the Mohawk Hot stuff, very 80's-90's NYHC. Wonderful tattoo though, lets not take away from that.
