I like the lettering, but as you can see it isnt straight. I was wondering if it would be possible to cover the name, with something and incorperate a new name into the new desighn

You go to a scratcher, you get what you get. Find a real artist and see what he/she thinks about covering that up. Laser might be in your future.

I don’t see that this could ever be straightened out. My suggestion would be to embrace the quirkiness of it, and let it remind you of two things:
A) Nothing is perfect, and to expect perfection is to live your life in constant disappointment.
B) Never get a tattoo done by someone of that caliber again. You can do so much better.

Also, I’m not trying to be a herald of doom here, but MOST relationship name tattoos are lasered off and covered in the end, since the ink is far more durable than the relationship. Thus, I wouldn’t recommend expending too much energy on getting it fixed.

Should of gone to a shop to get tattooed.

I myself have been tattooed by a scratcher on my arm when i was 15 over 14 tattoo’s ago. I’ve decided against getting it removed and im going to live with because it reminds me about that time in my life when i thought cheaper was better and will remind me to always go to a licensed studio.

Go to a licensed shop in the future and if your friends asks to tattoo you again just slit he’s throat for him.

I hope you choose to have a real artist cover this piece up and give you a good tattoo

I thank those of you who gave a constructive reply. as far as her name being removed its not likely to happen going on 8 years now. this was the first one and like i said ive seen alot of his other work and it looked nothing like this. its ok though i know it can be coverd up with something. i just dont know what im going in and asking for. that was my question. I would find a place. go in and ask to have this coverd and….?
