Tattoo help required please

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,  Long story short my tattoo journey so far has been a disaster (mostly my fault)

 I am almost at a place where I can actually look at sleeve in the mirror without feeling like crap

 I want to get the top part of my above reworked (above the Buddha) 

I feel the lotus flower needs to be reworked and to shade over the colours around it as I feel it just too much 


any thoughts on this would be much appreciated

It's already pretty dark, so my guess is that it could be re-worked by someone who could sharpen up the lines and make the colors richer. Add some detail.

That's a mess alright. You can't go back and not do this, but you can avoid making the same mistakes again. Just my opinion, but you'd be better off finding someone to rework it than to try to cover it. Some bright colors would really help.

I agree with you both 

will definitely get it reworked, not after a miracle just want it obvious what the tattoo is rather than looking like random stuff 


thanks for your help

    • 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.
