Tattoo artist design

Recommended Posts

Can anyone complete this design? I need some ideas. This was a coverup that went wrong. Any ideas on where to go with this tattoo? I am okay with color and love the watercolor designs.

You can't cover over that big black tattoo with a water color tattoo. As @SStu suggests, start some laser treatments. This isn't going to be fast or cheap to fix. DON'T hurry, find someone really good at coverups and be prepared to spend some serious money. If you don't, you'll make an even bigger mess.

That is a big honking black tattoo on some really delicate skin in a really public spot, so it's going to take someone really good to do something with it. Good aint cheap and cheap aint good.

The artist that did this told me that the plan was to go behind this with white and put color around it. Will this work?

um... I don't know about the white but man I wouldn't add to it.

How do you "go behind" a tattoo? 

If you have an artist, a design and a plan, why are you asking for more opinions here? Do you have a sketch of what the artist is trying to do? Any links to his work?

You said this was a coverup that went wrong. It doesn't sound like it's done so what went wrong?

The artist said that it wasnt done yet but I'm honestly worried to add anything else to it. I brought in a template that I wanted to use but it wouldn't fit with my previous tattoo. (I will include before and after photos). As far as going behind the tattoo, I had the same thoughts as you do. How do you go BEHIND it? It is peeling now. 

She says that she has seen white put on black tattoos a million times. Will that work?

white on black is a thing - and can be good applied by the right artist, but the application of the cover that's there so far isn't good, so I wouldn't have any confidence that she's going to be able to fix this . . .

So this is what I was thinking as far as the future of the tattoo. Whatcha think?

Not this exactly but this is just the colors and sort of design I think I could put inside with the white.

Please don't take this the wrong way, but there's an old saying... "you can't polish a turd."  Maybe it'd best to just let it go, mark it up experience and get what you really want from a good artist on a different location.

This design coming out of what you’ve got now....that’s not gonna happen. That’s being unrealistic.

putting white over solid black is not going to be as vivid as you are thinking,it will be very lightly subtle at best.

it will never look like that reference picture you posted.

    • no, IMO  a touchup will only F*** it up, it looks fine. it's a tiny fine line tattoo that's not healed yet, relax and enjoy it.
    • ~Hi guys, had my tattoo recently and very happy with it apart from one niggling bit. One of the " R " letters is slightly thicker than the other. My tattooist is happy to rectify it ( thicken one of the Rs ) once it's healed in a few weeks. What do you think, is it too intricate to change it? PQ is poor because my phones camera is no good, in RL the tattoo looks awesome. Thanks  
    • You don't know what it's going to look like until it's healed. 4-6 weeks.
