Hi,

I had my shoulder tribal extended on Friday by a tattooist who came well recommended and has many years experience and a good portfolio. However there is a massive amount of “smudging” around the back of my arm on the softer skin.

Is this blowout? Did he do a rubbish job and push the ink in too deep? I am really quite bruised which suggests he was heavy handed.

Is there any chance this will disperse? Or am I looking at lasering / covering with shading?

I’d really like to understand whether it’s just bad luck or whether the artist is actually rubbish. I need to decide whether to go back to him to finish / fix it or look for someone else.

Many thanks,

Richard

What’s all the yellowing and speckling on the left? I thought a blow out would be where the line is…. how does it happen so far away from where the ink should be?

the yellow parts are bruising, the artist must have been pretty rough
