Newbie Question: Ideas on how to join these 2 back pieces?

Recommended Posts


So, I got these 2 pieces about 10 years ago and haven't really touched them up ever since. Now I want to join both of them and, of course, re-color or retouch them, as well. I usually go for flowers only but it can be something else... Does anyone have any ideas that might look good? I really don't know how to join the two of them!

I would, in the process of refreshing what you've already got, embelish and expand what is already there. You could join them in that process.

You would need to find the right artist for that endeavor, and we can help with that. Where do you live?

I’d think bigger now, just to be proactive.

You don’t have to actually do it, but you’ll at least not paint yourself into a corner if you do decide to eventually build to a full back piece.


You never know. And that’s some high value real estate.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
