So i made the mistake of rushing getting a tattoo and not choosing a good artist.. whole experience was bad. And i gave him 900$ for this crap. Just wondering if i can get the hand fully covered and would like too make it less demonic lol jw what i should do... the idea was a celtic/viking vibe Im gonna be going too a more reputable place and artist. Any tattoo suggestions would be great. I would like a full sleeve eventually. I also tried posting this in the tattoo advice forum but was not letting me. Thank you.

It Looks pretty light so there would be a possibility of having it covered with darker colours and there is a lot of space in it so there would be plenty of room to work and blend it. I would say when choosing your next tattooist the best thing would be to ask to see there before and after pictures of cover ups they have done and see if they have any aged pictures of them after healing

And ok thanks very much guys...what about the linework at all ? Lol and how much would a full sleeve be or half a sleeve cost once this is fixed. Just wonding. 🙂

We can't answer about prices. You have to speak to each individual tattoo artist.

Medicine Hat...you will be closer to Calgary and they have a large number of skilled tattooers. But the tattooer will determine whether they would want you to hit a few laser sessions and do something completely fresh OR if they would be ok with re-working everything (really, depends on the tattooer).

Look up OllieXXX, he works in Calgary/Canmore. His shit is so heavy he'd run over everything and you won't be able to see any sign of the past. 

There's also https://www.heavyhorsetattoo.com/ in Olds, Alberta, might be more your style.

Shawn Hedley or Rich Harding at Champion Tattoo probably clean you up no problemo, great guys and easy to work with...they are in Edmonton but moving East to Sherwood Park at the end-April.

You're gonna need to go talk to tattooers face-to-face to really see what your options are...Alberta road trippin' buddy !

A full sleeve would be twice as much as a half sleeve.  ;-)

Don't cheap out, don't rush or you'll wind up even more unhappy. I always get anxious when people start asking "how much." It's usually followed by  "how do I fix this."

    • I was able to add a picture I understand it will heal and fade eventually but I think the contrast of the ink is a different shade then the ink I already have. Also I feel like it’s a very busy tattoo for not being done.. can the white ink really change that like he says?
    • the new hand tattoo will be darker brighter more vivid than the rest of your  settled in sleeves.The hand tattoo will probably look more cohesive and not stand out so much once it settles in 6 months (without seeing it)
    • About two weeks ago I got my first hand tattoo, not my first tattoo or anything I have both sleeves done completely and even a neck tattoo. The hand tattoo is a tribute to my grandpa, it is a anchor with a banner with his name and there is a spider web to fill the rest of my hand as background. I would post a picture but I am writing this off a computer.  anyways I feel like the tattoo came out very dark in contrast compared to the rest of my sleeve it stands out and doesn't flow at all with it almost like I have a dark glove on, Idk if he did this because it is my hand and it does not hold ink as well so he was planning ahead but the web is very dark and over powers the anchor and my hand is covered in black ink. I know it is a new tattoo and its still angry and it will fade and calm down into a lighter color once it has healed but it still looks like its gonna have a darker contrast then the rest of the ink going all the way up my arm. I talked to my artist and he said the tattoo isn't done and there is still a lot of detail and white ink to be added to the whole tattoo to make it look better. but when i look at it it doesn't look like much can really be done because how covered my hand is in black ink from the web so I'm not sure what his plan really is . can the white ink he plans to throw in there really change the whole tattoo and how it looks/flows? Can tattoos look like this when they are unfinished and still need detail?  He is a great artist and I have been going to him for over a year now and I trust him because of the amazing sleeve he's done. I've heard of post anxiety from tattoos and I've defiantly had it before for maybe one or two out of the countless tattoos I have so I am aware it happens.  also maybe because its my hand and its uncoverable and always right in front of me maybe that is making the post tattoo anxiety a lot more intense? Brand new here was hoping to get some feed back maybe from some people that has experienced the same or tattoo artist out there that might have a response to this. Thank You.
