Please advise on inner arm tattoo

Recommended Posts



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)

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.

    • take a breath and relax, it will pass, and start  planning your next tattoo.
    • Hey there everyone, I have the same feeling and I don't know what to do. I love the design and how it looks on my body, but sometimes I get this anxiety and the permanency of tattoo makes it only worse. You can't really take it off haha. But what's weird is that it's been let's say a month and a half now. At first, I loved it and it felt like a dream came true, everyone was complementing my tattoo, I was embracing it, etc. But then I started to notice like different things about my tattoo that I guess I would do differently. It's also my first one, forearm piece and quite big (at least for me). Since then I have mixed feelings that sometimes just give me anxiety that I can't cope with. It gets to the point where I can't think about anything else, and Google tattoo removals, but then there are days where I want more tattoos. But it scares me because what if I will never learn how to love them all. And the thought of it being on my body for my whole life scares me lol.
    • That doesn't particularly look like those spots relate to where white highlight ink would have been placed, at least from this vantage point here . . .
