Recommended Posts

Hi this is my first tattoo done on chest in two sessions it's not finished yet there will be one last short session. Head and eyes are not finished my artist left them like that on firts session and told me on second three days later that because healing process  started and he can't needle in the same places as he could pull out/tear ink he put few days ago and he needs to finish it in three weeks now. 

 

Anyway can you tell me what do you think about that? Pros and cons please. I have a feeling that the area under my chest is a bit empty I'm not a specialist can you please tell me anything you think about his job.

 

Thanks.

Sorry having rough days recently.

 

Well yeah basically had one session on friday where he did one half and he left that head,like this and feathers on reaper side. Then as you can see from a different  colour tone he finished second half but said that the eyes and those feathers needs to be finished in three weeks otherwise he may mess up ink that he put on friday,I have found this a little bit weird why he could finish tattooing elsewhere but not head and feathers.....

 

Yes any opinion on quality of his job anything to help me understand what he did would most appreciate, I thought that the picture is pretty much clear why hardly to say anything from that picture?

 

Thanks.

well ok ,  IMO it's not a very good tattoo overall.it looks like a scratcher did it.

it's not crisp line work, the shading is not applied correctly, the transitions from one image to another and even within each image is not smooth,there is not enough contrast.

sorry,but you asked.

Some artists will leave important details until the last session in an effort to make sure you come back for the last session. That way they get to finish the work to their own standards. 

Imho he looks to be average, artistically. 

 

Brilliant thanks. By saying artistically average what exactly do you mean,his skills or perhaps something you would change in desing?

No worries I rather hear honest opinion than some babbling. It's weird though to hear that as the artist have 25 years of experience. He said that 3rd session is needed to finish this off so I hope a bit that it'll be bettter maybe. Transition from one image to another isn't it caused because there was a gap between two sessions won't that different colour of tone become one ecentually?

 

Thanks.

Just because he's been doing it for it for a long time doesn't mean he's good at it. I'm with Dan here. I don't think I'd go back, but that's up to you.

Yes but as you can see the head,eyes and area around feathers are completely not finished how can I get this finished by a different artist?

Find someone really good at coverups. Not that you want to cover this up, but someone experienced at coverups is probably your best bet for getting this as good as it can possibly be. They won't be cheap.

If it were mine, I'd have someone with more artistic talent re-work it - but I'm fussy about my art. 

There's probably 10,000 tattooists in the US. There's probably only 1,000 that I would consider "good artists". Time in tattooing does not = good artist.

I live in UK I have no idea where to look and,when you say not cheap what price about you think about?

 

Thanks everyone.

Off course I understand that time does not always reflect skills but when someone tells me 25 years it's kind of natural way that you get certain amount of experience and skill level.

I will follow your advice and not gonna visit that artist anymore one more small question when you look this picture are able tell that there is a difference in quality between two sides-reaper and cemetery? Like he has put less efforts doing one of this sides?

The reaper side is less readable, and it's darker so will be tougher to re-work. 

Price will depend on several factors that will vary/artist. I'd be prepared for a $2-3000 estimate, and that's not including travel costs. Send us links to potential candidates and we can assist with the search if you like.

That is correct that you can not go over on the fresh tattoo and do something else . The tattoo has to be healed first then you can work on it . Every tattoo artist will agree with that . If you had just 2 sessions and you are going to get another one to put everything toghether you shouldn’t slag off the artist because that is very unfair . The tattoo looks amazing so far and it is not finished yet I would suggest not to worry to much especially if you need to stilll catty on and they should by finished off as one piece . One thing I know as tattooed person and artist lover that is very rude to slag of your artist online while he done great work for you in such a short time I would consider that more

Sorry for being so green but when I finally get to the rework what should I ask for,what should I tell artist I want to be done.....

You'd tell any potential artist what you're original vision was, bring references of other similar art that you love and ask for their honest opinion of a possible outcome.
