Well, i definatly have to thank you guys for the input. I wasnt aware that there are specialists who do coverups. Reading over some things, one person said to wait a good two months for it to heal, if i incorperate what another gentleman said to do what im not supposed to for tattoo care would that two months still apply?

Again i have to thank everyone here for the advice given.

Yeah some guys just have a knack for looking at a design and seeing something else. It’s like those people who see Jesus’ face in their chicken soup. :p

Yes, the 2 months will still apply, but hopefully at the end of the 2 months the tattoo will at least be a little lighter than it would have been otherwise.

Aye. Being a full week in, you’ve already lost your chance to do any MAJOR damage to that thing, but if you get right on with the mistreatment you might manage to get SOME color out at least.

Hi

To clarify my post the 2 months wait is only if you wanted to add fresh ink to what was there in terms of a rework or cover-up.

If you try to tattoo straight over fresh ink it won’t take and your next tattoo can go horribly wrong.

If you are trying to lighten it then as Arni said but still needs to heal before you do anything else ink wise.

That said it is a small tattoo and could easily be covered by a pro artist as it is so I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

Take care
Matthew


The only difference between a person with tattoos, and a person without is this. The person with tattoos does not care if you do not have any.

i was going to suggest a banner or a scroll too actually so i agree with xanderx. if you like the script as it is and you just dont like the fact that its wonky then drop it into a scroll, maybe add some swallows or flowers and jobs a good’un, just please dont go back to that artist! lol good luck with what ever you want to do, though if you’re just going to cover it with the same name in the same font i think if it were me i would just go with the scroll idea lol no point covering it with the same thing 🙂 x

wow, that idea about getting an banner to match is blooming clever!

just don’t get it done TOO well, as like someone else said, it’ll emphasise the poor quality of the lettering.

in fact, get the same tool to do the banner, and hey presto!
