Question about tattoo artist putting on stencil

So as some of you may already know from posts of mine on the forum lately, im planning on getting a new tattoo. 

The last time i got a tattoo, the tattoo artist applied the stencil but a part of it didnt transfer to my skin so there was a gap in it. What the tattoo artist did was used a pen to fill in the gap in the part of the stencil that didnt transfer onto my skin. In the end after being tattooed, the part he filled in with the pen was misshapen and didnt come out exactly right. Im not sure if filling it in with a pen was the reason it didnt come out right because it didnt look obviously misshapen when he drew it on but i suspect it is. 

So here is my question. If a similar thing happens when i get my next tattoo and there are pieces of the stencil that dont transfer on to my skin, should i ask the tattoo artist if he can reprint the stencil or should i just allow him to use a pen if he thinks its necessary to fill in any missing parts in the stencil?

thanks for the reply 

So if the tattoo artist does decide to use a pen on the stencil if he thinks its necessary should i let him? or would it be better to try to have him reprint it to avoid having to use a pen? 

yes, adjusting things on the stenciled skin is totally  normal, assuming you have done proper research on this tattooer, you need to trust them, of course you will look at the stencil before they start tattooing and approve it.

    • I was able to add a picture I understand it will heal and fade eventually but I think the contrast of the ink is a different shade then the ink I already have. Also I feel like it’s a very busy tattoo for not being done.. can the white ink really change that like he says?
    • the new hand tattoo will be darker brighter more vivid than the rest of your  settled in sleeves.The hand tattoo will probably look more cohesive and not stand out so much once it settles in 6 months (without seeing it)
    • About two weeks ago I got my first hand tattoo, not my first tattoo or anything I have both sleeves done completely and even a neck tattoo. The hand tattoo is a tribute to my grandpa, it is a anchor with a banner with his name and there is a spider web to fill the rest of my hand as background. I would post a picture but I am writing this off a computer.  anyways I feel like the tattoo came out very dark in contrast compared to the rest of my sleeve it stands out and doesn't flow at all with it almost like I have a dark glove on, Idk if he did this because it is my hand and it does not hold ink as well so he was planning ahead but the web is very dark and over powers the anchor and my hand is covered in black ink. I know it is a new tattoo and its still angry and it will fade and calm down into a lighter color once it has healed but it still looks like its gonna have a darker contrast then the rest of the ink going all the way up my arm. I talked to my artist and he said the tattoo isn't done and there is still a lot of detail and white ink to be added to the whole tattoo to make it look better. but when i look at it it doesn't look like much can really be done because how covered my hand is in black ink from the web so I'm not sure what his plan really is . can the white ink he plans to throw in there really change the whole tattoo and how it looks/flows? Can tattoos look like this when they are unfinished and still need detail?  He is a great artist and I have been going to him for over a year now and I trust him because of the amazing sleeve he's done. I've heard of post anxiety from tattoos and I've defiantly had it before for maybe one or two out of the countless tattoos I have so I am aware it happens.  also maybe because its my hand and its uncoverable and always right in front of me maybe that is making the post tattoo anxiety a lot more intense? Brand new here was hoping to get some feed back maybe from some people that has experienced the same or tattoo artist out there that might have a response to this. Thank You.
