I can feel my tattoo lines?!?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Wondering if there is anyway to settle down the lines since they are still slightly raised even after a year. I suspect it could be scar tissue, but it only appears to be raised on my outer bicep. My chest and forearm and inner bicep healed fine and are now flat. Not sure if anything can be done, but feels kinda cool I guess. Do you guys notice the raised lines, if not then GREAT😄? 

Also wanted your guys opinion on my entire piece. All critique welcomed😅(Forearm still new in this picture and not yet completely done).

looks like nice work to me! 

I wouldn't worry about the raised lines unless they become red/sore. 
This question comes up occasionally but there doesn't seem to be any practical advice or solution (or need to worry).

    • Any updates?  Mine look just like yours.  Got them last summer and they went away and now they’re back.  
    • In my mind you've already got the acceptable limit = "inspiration". If you take that picture some a willing tattooist and say "I want this EXACTLY as this is" and they trace it out then it's just reproduced artwork, like a cartoon character.  If you take that picture to a qualified artist and say I'd like a goat's head and raven similar to this then you're likely to get an original piece of art. 
    • hi all! it's been a minute since i've been online - hope you're all doing well and are safe! ☺️ i wanted to ask, in your opinion, at what line does inspiration become ripping off another artist? is it okay to see someone's art and commission another artist to do their own take or spin on a concept? what are your thoughts? for example, i really want to get black phillip from the vvitch tattooed on my leg. i love the composition, styling, and overall design of this artist's interpretation. however, i would not want my own artist to blatantly copy someone else's design? i'd want them to incorporate their own ideas, styles, color palette, etc. to the table. is this okay in your opinion? i know that people feel strongly about copying (as they should) and i don't want to step on anyone's toes!
