New & considering a coverup

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello! I’ve wanted a birdcage tattoo for about ten years and I finally did it last month! However, it started blowing out the next day and the lines healed very crooked. I went back to see what he could do to fix it and he said outlining it in white ink would help 😕 I don’t like it. I had some flowers tattooed on my ankle last week and she did a great job! No blow outs or anything. I asked about cover up options and she said it was possible to cover it up and it’d be easy since it was small! What do you guys think?? We’re thinking of covering up the old one with a flower/leaves and adding a new birdcage beside it.

hi and welcome, yes for sure,if the artist says that she would do the cover-up and what you want,I would definitely have her do it, the flowers she did look really nice.

where is that birdcage at on your body ?

That's a pretty good looking free bird! 

Thanks! It looks so much better than the orginal. I can see more of the old cafe as this one heals but it still looks overall better so I don’t even mind lol

The same artist that did my leg flowers. Original birdcage was done by a different guy

Much better I think - the first birdcage looked pretty bad to my inexpert eyes...

    • This. I have a piece on my back that I've not once fretted over. But after I got my first "visible" tattoo I started going over every f*cking detail. This was after waiting a long time, searching for the perfect tattoo artist, consulting with the artist prior, etc. I was calculated. But as already noted, some people (such as myself) need that little bit of reassurance because maybe our anxiety gets the better of us. We're all wired differently.  To the OP, to me it looks like you got a bit tanner. Not to worry, even if it is darker, it will still look great. 
    • LMFAO @ that GIF 🤣🤣  that cracked me up! honestly I think most people just want some kind of reassurance in most aspects with their questions. I know the main reason I joined initially was cause I had a crack on the inside of my ditch (little did I know there was a thread from years ago about healing ditches etc). Then I got paranoid about infection because I just lost my job and don’t have health insurance and you know the funniest thing? This is the first tattoo I can actually see, and saw during the healing process. The rest of mine are shoulder, collarbone, back. I mean I can see my collarbone in the mirror but not infront of my face like my arm... I honestly think that’s partly the issue, if you can see it, you can dwell on imperfections, how it’s healing etc etc. 🤷🏻‍♀️
    • I know you can't tell me anything until it's healed, but what can you tell me?   I'm with you on the no anxiety after getting a tattoo. I read about it and understand it, but I've never felt it. Probably because I waited so long, researched it so thoroughly, and took my time finding the right artist.
