Well I got a tattoo for my bday the other day.. and well the stencil looked amazing and so did the drawing but when the artist was done it looked like total shit.. like a prison tattoo… and I NEED to get this damn thing removed ASAP and hopefully get it to where i can put another tattoo there.. not completely covering it prolly smaller.. and i was wondering if i leave it in the sun/ swim / keep petrolium jelly on it if itll fade faster then go to get it lazered, here it is (and it cost me $150) http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs610.snc3/32129_403725971532_606201532_4808997_5189534_n.jpg http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc3/hs338.snc3/29529_403340781532_606201532_4795739_2066471_n.jpg (notice the ass didn’t even finish the whiskers on the other side.. as soon as he was done he bandaged it up.. so i couldnt say anything)
OMG!! Did you not look at it while it was being done?
That has got to be one of the poorest tattoos I have ever seen. I would have strangled the tattoo monkey with his clip cord!
On a serious note please dont do anything bad to it, the better you heal it the better it will be removed.If you mess about with it you are more likely to end up with scars. Give it 8 weeks to heal properly and get some laser on it. I doubt very much that you will be able to get anything smaller ever but for Gods sake get a decent artist this time.
Yeah.. It looks like a prison tat… do you think i could get it completely removed?
and the angle he was doing it i couldn’t look down and see… AND after he started it he decided to go back and smoke a joint and it turns out the guy was drinking.. idk if i could get them in trouble wit that or what.. but there wasnt shit i could do because he already started
all u can do now is keep it baking in the sun and let it fade. then once it heals get some laser sessions and get it covered up by a REPUTABLE artist.
I’ve seen worse. If you read thru these boards you will find many, many people that have had the same experience. Who was the scratcher and where do they work?
Listen to Cornishtiger, he seems to be wise in these matters.
If there are any mods reading this, do we have a Topic where we can RANT and RAVE about the artists that we have had experience with? It would be great to be able to give props were due and slam the scratchers that send these poor souls to us looking for advise.
I think you could get rid of most of it easy. Getting all of it out will be possable but would take a lot of work.
If I was you I would plan on partial removal and a good coverup of the same size.
With regard to “baking it off” in the sum please be very carful giving advice like that with no specific guidence. Sun and black ink do not mix at all. You stand a real good chance of getting a serious amount of sunburn under black ink and even scars.
Better safe than sorry.
I’d let it heal then get it lasered to lighten it up. Then find a real artist to design a good coverup.
Pull your pants up!!
