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?

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.

    • Hi, I've got an appointment in 3 weeks time but I've been having thoughts about changing the design. I thought I was dead set on what I wanted but then I wasn't sure about size and placement as I thought I wanted it smaller but my initial design wouldn't look great smaller. I've just thought of another design that would work smaller. Also as this is a tattoo for my son I feel this new design is more indicative of our bond so I want to feel completely happy on a personal level that I choose a tattoo that reflects our bond best. Im just frustrated with myself that id never thought of this idea before as if I had, I would've gone with this rather than changing my mind. As a tattoo artist, would you feel annoyed about having to change design 3 weeks in advance? How likely is it that you would have drawn the original idea up this far in advance? Im happy to pay a bit more if she has already drawn it and therefore needs more time to redraw new design, ive already paid £100 deposit so not sure how much more generally I'd need to pay. I know every artist is different though.
    • Thanks man! I like the idea of an engine actually and it would fit really well with the cog theme. As my plan is to do 1 nature piece followed by something manmade, I'll probably do a rose/set of flowers into an engine below. Also gonna go back on Wednesday to get the lion eye shaded in blue, which I think would look quite cool
    • Never done anything that big, but what I have has left me with no distinct memories of the pain - even a few hours later. I remember it hurt, but not how it hurt. That helps. That yours looks so freaking awesome should dull any pain that it caused you!
