Got my first tattoo! But..

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

First post for me here. Just got my first tattoo yesterday and was thrilled! Looking down at my arm from my angle the tattoo looks fabulous but when looking from upfront it felt... unbalanced when looking at the bottom half vs the top half. I'm thinking about going back and getting more shading outside the helmet areas.

Let me know what you think. (Its supposed to be a Samurai btw)

LOL it's called "tattoo remorse",and we all get it,but you need to relax and let it settle and heal.

Take a deep breath,have a beer,and go on with your life.

take a another look in a few months and maybe discuss it with the artist that did it or another.

    • Who knows! It hurt a lot though, so I'm not sure if I want to do it again. This piece took me about 6 hours of tattooing plus one hour consult/aftercare. I'm super happy with it! (I hope pictures are okay in this thread, though it looks more crisp IRL)
    • You have more of a chance of F***ing it up than making it better if you start monkeying around with it. Go see a really good artist to get some ideas of what to add around it. There's nothing wrong with that tattoo. 
    • I'm healing a back of calf, about half in the ditch right now myself. Thin, tender skin. I don't see anything that looks like an infection.
