i got this tattoo for my father that passed away a few months ago

as you can see the i got shaking shakinds and the words say ” listen to your father who gave you life, and not despise your mother when she is old”

my friends said its kinda plain so any design suggestions to go around to make it look nice? I want a design to do something with the quote I have or heaven clouds or something biblical reference to the quote.

thanks for any suggestions

Welcome to the forum!

Was there anything in particular that four dad had a passion for? Was there something in particular that you and your dad did together?

I would come up with a design incorporating this and with some color, and no text, and cover up what you have. Sorry I’m being blunt, but you can do much, much, better.

oh u dont like the tat? I asked for something very simple, nothing complex just shaking hands and some words, I think it’s pretty nice and simple for my taste. Not really a tattoo person to begin with but my friends say I should get more designs around it or something to make it pop out more.

I’ve never been a fan of text tattoos. I follow the “1 picture is worth 1000 words” philosophy. The hands aren’t done as well as they could be. If you really like them, that is what matters. You could get them worked on and get some background added, but I would go to a different tattooer.

Yes, that is correct.

I’m going to be brutally honest here, not to offend you but to help you make an informed choice next time.

That tattoo is very poorly done, the person who did this on you has no skill at all and should be in prison for doing this to you, and probably hundreds of other people. Speaking of prison, it actually does look like a prison tattoo done with a ballpoint pen refill and an electric toothbrush motor.

Please don’t go back to the person that did this to you, unless it is to (as buttwheat would say) kick him in the balls.

I recommend you wait for it to heal and get it covered up by a real tattoo artist. Fortunately for you, your tattoo is light in colour which will make a coverup easier.

Did you get your tattoo for yourself or for your friends? You shouldn’t give a flying fuck about what your friends think about it, but all I see you saying is “my friends think I should do something more with it”.
So, if YOU like it, that’s really the only thing that matters!

That being said, I’m guessing that what your friends are really trying to say is “that thing is hideous, and you need to get it covered ASAP” without actually hurting your feelings. Which is actually unusually kind, since most friends (and even spouses 😉 ) just tell their friends that their tattoos are absolutely perfect and let them live on in ignorance.
