Please advise on inner arm tattoo

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

i had this Tattoo done about a year ago. I like the simplicity of the design and the size, but if I look super close I can see some stray lines, especially around the letters. I’m not sure if that is normal bleed out or if the artist had shaky hands. I have another one by her that has no such imperfections, but it’s less of a rigid design than lettering. 

 

I am debating either getting someone to go over the letters with bolder lines, or getting a quarter sleeve to eliminate so much white space. The other option is to leave as is. 

 

Looking for some advice or thoughts from more experienced tattoo people (this is my 3rd tattoo -  all are fairly small and simple) 

 

thanks!

Everyone says they don’t see it.

That should tell you something.

I can see the little wisp of a line at the bottom of the the dot on the i. If that brothers you I'd think it be super easy to fix just by filling it into the dot.

    • Hello! I am about to have my hand tatooed and would like to have it go on "top" on my current sleeve. I was thinking past the red flames that you see. I am wondering if it means my new tattoos needs to be solid black to go on top for it to cover up? Because I wouldn't want the flames to stick out of nowhere or have the lines from the bricks show up in the new one. It's my first time getting a tattoo on top of another one, so I just want to make sure! Thanks so much for your time!   Pictures
    • I got this one last week from Lukas Speich at XXX Tattoo in Lucerne, Switzerland. I stole the idea from a story that Yoni Zilber retold from Bill Salmon, in a Podcast... there was a dude who saw someone's tattoo and said, "That's a pretty cool tattoo. I got a tattoo also, but mine's a little cooler." He showed the tattoo and there it was... a little cooler. 😉😉  I chose the classic Igloo Playmate, but the wording was too small to tattoo. So, I asked Lukas to add a little Swiss flag and he went with a red cross. It's kinda funny to me, as it now looks like it could be used to transport an organ donation.
    • Yeah, it's crazy! Hope that you are healing better, too. My knee is crazy jacked up. I am sure that I will need a touch up eventually!
