    Don't do anything and ignore it. No tattoo is perfect (like everything in life) and that isn't worth worrying about or trying to fix. Just enjoy it and plan your next.

    Absolutely nothing. Your chances of making it worse trying to fix it are about 99%.

    JAC1961 got a reaction from SStu in Scarring on 9 day old tattoo advice please   
    Hmmm... the wrist skin is thinner and doesn't take well to being overworked. And that looks like it was overworked/went too deep. Was this done in a shop? Did the tattooer have much experience? To be brutally honest, it looks poorly done overall.

    Not sure if this belongs here or in the WTF In the News but has anyone seen this article about a study of people with tattoos that has been trending on LinkedIn the last couple of weeks?
    https://www.hcamag.com/au/news/general/reckless-or-creative-the-great-tattoo-debate/177257
    The gist of it is that they concluded people with tattoos are more likely to act in haste and not think of the consequences of their actions. I argued that just like someones race, religion, or sexual preference doesn't determine your personality, neither does presence of tattoos on your skin. And also that it could of easily been framed to show the exact opposite based on the researchers bias (that people with tattoos are more decisive and more willing to live with the consequences of their actions). 
    I was encouraged to see that 90% or more of the engagement was bashing the study and agreeing that having tattoos doesn't make someone a better or worse candidate for hiring but of course there were a vocal few supporting the study. 

    Just curious if anyone here has seen the article going around, what your thoughts on it are and if you feel like you've been passed over on a job you qualified for because of your tattoos?

    Very proud of myself and the family today. Our daughter and I both donated blood for first time. My wife and sister-in-law also donated for 4 units from the family. Glad my needle phobia is subsiding enough to let me help those in need.

    if you do go the stars/dots route, suggest you get them all done at once by the same tattooer, so they look consistent. and a tattooer that is experienced with that traditional look.
    but idk, perhaps just leave it. adding dots/stars could really muddy it all up, i'm not sure if it will really 'bring it together' - your pieces are all black and they are already fairly close together.
    you still got room for a nice wrist tattoo and what looks like a lot of torso real estate for some really cool big interesting pieces. that might help you take your own focus away from feeling your arm is incomplete (which i don't think it is, looks great as-is).

    Not really a new tattoo but I got a call from the shop that did my tattoos. They are having a professional photographer come in to shoot some of the artists favorite pieces and the artist who did mine choose one of mine as one of his favorites that he wanted shot. Thought that was pretty sweet. I’m guessing it’s the clipper ship but I’m not sure.

    A nice and bloody rose I got last Thursday from my buddy Vince at Chapman Avenue Tattoo. I actually got a few from him that day but still waiting to peel the saniderm off so no pictures.

    JAC1961 got a reaction from tsuk in Color change possibility?   
    If they can completely cover a black tattoo with a different design, I'd think covering yellow and orange with a darker red would be simple.  The color probably will be different than ones done over bare skin, but should just add depth. Any decent artist should be able to easily handle this.
    Also, welcome.

    Firstly, some pics would help people understand what you're dealing with.  Secondly, you're doing this to yourself.  Take a deep breath and stop obsessing over it.  It takes a while to get used to a big change, relax and try to just ignore it for a few weeks.  It just a tattoo.
