neither of my big, noticeable tattoos turned out how i wanted, and while the one on my chest could be reworked, the one on my neck can't have much done to it without making it even more apparent and prison-esque. and they are fucked up for the same reason - this artist is a professional and i'm in his shop, potentially stepping on his toes...
my advice is:
1. expand on your design concepts to fix/cover what you don't like
2. try to find a tattoo artist that you actually connect with so you feel comfortable communicating, and not intimidated about correcting them
i’m still working on both of these concepts...it's really difficult.
It is very difficult.
I plan on drawing a rough draft myself next time. Seemed to work well with my first tattoo. He added the details and even made a suggestion that went well. Of course it was just stars and music notes on my neck..
Unfortunately that guy is in Florida. Great artist though.
Maybe we should remember that yea.. They're the "professional" but were the customers . were "always right" lol
