I'm not sure why you keep defending that hack. They are really, really bad.

It's important to be able to recognize a good artist from a bad artist. There's no nice way to say it, they suck. There are a lot of things wrong with that tattoo and the font is the LEAST of the problems.

Well i'll learn from it and not go to an apprentice next time . Especially when my usual artist has been tattooing about 20 years

Another idea could be a tribal design. I'll pop into my more experienced artist next week and see what they say.

 

Quickly made this on gimp lol. But that's what I mean by tribal, filling the letters in then having some blade type lines coming out of it. Just an idea.

Hopefully they'll have some suggestions at the studio as I'm terrible when it comes to art.

Hopefully the panther idea works, however I do have small forearms and the rear legs  probably wouldn't fit on and look like a dashund lmao 😞 Either way there's not much more to say at the moment but i'll keep updated with what my artist says

Yeah. That's a shitty tattoo for lots of reasons. Quit defending that guy. It's dreadful.

That top thing, whatever it is supposed to be, looks awful. Don't do that.

Just an idea dude. It took 1 minute to make in paint. What im saying is maybe we can fill the letters in and then base a tribal sort of design round it.

I understand that, DUDE. (I'm a woman, by the way.) Tribal is very deliberate and designed a certain way. That isn't going to look "tribal." It's going to look like you have a mop head or a malformed centipede on your arm. But hey, you do you, boo.

Lol yeah I did think that, I call everyone dude btw nothing personal I won't  say it again in future on here then so sorry.

was  just a suggestion to fill it black then base an idea around it.. thought maybe that sort of thing would work. obviously not.

To be fair the Daschund would work lmao but obv I don't want a dog silhouette on my arm

I'm not sure it would work: the silhouette of THAT dog would look just like a big black sausage (or a huge, possibly melanoma-related, mole) on your arm.

 

By the way: I don't want to be pedantic, but the correct name of the dog breed is Dachshund 😉

What artist?

As you guys are in America that's pretty irrelevant right ?

I'd need to find an artist who specialises in black-work  won't I ? I'm still looking around, not going to rush into anything.

This time round i'll do my homework and make sure I find the right person, not an apprentice

Not necessarily, unless you don't want our input on ability. 

Not necessarily "specializes", but you'll definitely need one who is proficient in black-work AND cover-ups.

OK @SStu thanks.

So to find a decent artist for this job, they must have a strong portfolio and evidence they can do decent blackwork?

 

Should I also ask a few artists for their ideas and designs to see which one I like the best ?

Irrelevant? Maybe if you'd asked the "irrelevant" Americans for opinions BEFORE you got tattooed, you would have avoided that atrocity. We can still look at a portfolio and tell you why we think it's good or bad.

You're going on my ignore list, you're just a nut job.

I have the feeling he just phrased it awkwardly. I guess he meant "irrelevant" are suggestions for places to fix it in America, because he can't get there.

Doesn't fixes the other parts. But anyways, for a lot of families the tattoo is rather fitting:

-not exactly what you ordered

-even it is some sort of shitty, you are stuck with it...

Yeah, that's a no. This has been going on forever—he asks for advice, but he doesn't listen to the answer if he doesn't like it. But it's nice of you to try.

Well yeah that's what I was getting at. At least you can see what I meant
