Is it just me or is this sloppy line work?

Recommended Posts

My friend made an appointment for the two of us to get these small tattoos we’ve been planning. I liked the tattoo her artist did for her so I was comfortable with her making the appointment. But now that I am looking at the artist’s Instagram, I’m not feeling it.
 
I see some occasional clean line work but also a lot shaky lines and pickups, as well as inconsistent shapes in designs that have repeating shapes (which is especially concerning since the design I want is mostly repeating shapes).
 
Do you think I am being overly critical or does anyone else see what I am seeing?

ETA: Just showed this to some other friends who agreed. We cancelled our appointments.

Way too inconsistent. Also, keep in mind, most artists only post their BEST work.


Right??! If this is the best she can do that is very concerning. My friend was able to cancel our appointments in time not to pay any penalty so PHEW. I’m officially in charge of selecting the artist.

Sadly, many people spend more time picking out what socks they'll wear to work than they do picking out the person that is going to ink them for life.

This is true of me but only because it usually takes me like an hour to find clean socks that match.

    • Nothing on hand, but it seems like a cool idea. 
    • Any cool pirannha tattoos out there? Please don't tell me "instagram" "google" "pinterest" or anything like that. I'm considered getting an outline of a piranha skull in lime green and dark purple (artist would be free to play with the idea) to symbolism me getting over my cancer (green and purple are the colors). Would love to see some inspirational pictures :)
    • I am experiencing the very same thing currently. Been searching all over to find out what and why. I found this and it is exactly what I’m experiencing. The only difference is I have quite a few tattoos and it is only happening with one and only on the first word. Weird it wouldn’t be the whole tattoo. I will be scheduling an appointment with my dermatologist for sure. This is very worrisome. My tattoo is about 6 months old and no issues up until 2 days ago. Crazy. I hate it.
