  1. Got a dreadful tattoo a few years back and have had a couple of sessions of removal. I spoke to a good artist who said the scratcher had gone deep into the skin and used way too much black, therefore it will get lightened but after a lot of sessions I am happy to go down the laser route and then get it covered up. Thing is, I have had two sessions so far and it still looks the same. Here is a photo of the tattoo from back in 2021 And here it is now after two sessions Is this likely to take years?
  2. I spoke to the artist who said he could do a japanese style piece and showed me what he meant, it's not what I'd want. Spoke to another artist and they said the only option is a full black out, which is definitely not what I want. I know I can't be picky but I'll be asking around a few places. If I went the removal route to get it faded would that cost a lot of money and time? As there is so much black.
  3. lolz. Didn't want to come off as arrogant and I do appreciate the advice. You guys said find a decent artist and i've found a couple who do very good blackwork. I'll keep updated in a few months once It's done
  4. Get a small text tattoo that you can cover up with clothing perhaps ?
  5. I've found a couple of artists who are good at blackwork so I think i'll be fine
  6. Well yeah that's what I was getting at. At least you can see what I meant
  7. 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 ?
  8. 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
  9. Now I have some transport I can venture out of my small town. I spoke to a highly regarded artist who said he can possibly do a Japanese style tattoo with it.
  10. Minor blowouts on the wrist are common as the skin is very thin
  11. To be fair the Daschund would work lmao but obv I don't want a dog silhouette on my arm
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
