Something off about new tattoo


Recommended Posts

So I just got these tattoos done on my arms. I had discussed with the artist about how I wanted traditional style swallows and showed examples to them. The sketch/stencils I felt like looked good, but after being shaded, I just am not happy with the way they turned out. I feel like something is wrong with the coloring but I cannot put my finger on what. Am I having tattoo anxiety or does anyone see what I’m talking about? Are they pretty bad?

hi, and yes, you should have done more and better research on "american traditional" artists to go to.


this tattoo is not done well IMO,

so live with it , maybe have a better artist touch it up or rework it after it's healed,

and please don't consider laser removal,it's not as good as most poeple think, it's very painful, takes many visits, and does not really "remove" a tattoo,

and then chalk it up to a lesson learned and research your next tattoo.

start finding good artists that do a style you like on instagram and follow them for a while. go to conventions,look on FB,talk to other tattooed poeple.

They aren't American traditional. Research on artists and styles is key. 

Let them heal, and maybe they can be touched up/reworked later. But just live with them for now.

The more I look at them, the more they look like someone did them with a magic marker. Very strange style.

    • If you have ever worked as a tattoo artist, piercer, or any type of skin artist it's extremely important you contact the HubSpot corporation, and Certified Tattoo Studio, a HubSpot customer. Modern Driven Media's (a HubSpot partner) CEO Shana Steigerwalt, was hired by the owner of CertifedTattooStudio, Nando Mondragon, to collect the personal data of everyone that could be found by hacker's on the black market. Ms. Steigerwalt bought the data from hackers, with the number of individuals' data collected totaling more than one million people globally. You on this board almost certainly all had your data purchased illegally from hackers on the black market. CTS would pay MDM for this service, in violation of numerous state and federal laws, then would launder the money through their business accounts in violation of federal money laundering laws. HubSpot, and CTS, are required by law to inform you if they are storing your data, and how they got your data (in this case through multiple felonies). You have a claim (can file suit) against MDM, CTS, and the owners of both companies. If you discover your data was illegally collected and being housed by CTS, you should contact your local district attorney and a private attorney immediately. Numerous states have their own state statutes regarding data privacy and detail additional state level legal action you can take as a victim, and you are a victim of a crime. Numerous investigations are currently underway, but can take time to prosecute. In the meantime contact HubSpot and demand Modern Driven Media immediately be banned from the software platform for violating their contact, the law and your rights. The tattoo industry was intentionally targeted during this criminal enterprise that spanned most of 2022. Regardless if your data, your rights, were violated, contact HubSpot and express your outrage at one of their partners intentionally targeting your industry as a victim. Demand MDM be immediately banned. HubSpot: "One of the quickest ways to get in touch with us is to call our support line directly. The main number is easy to remember: 1-888-HUBSPOT ext. 3 (1-888-482-7768 ext. 3)."
