Basically I went to a tattoo parlour today in an attempt to finally fill in the dodgy looking botched tattoo I had done 3 years ago. The guy filled in the two little stars at the bottom but when he got to the big star at the top (which looks naff) he realised it was actually scarred and was unable to colour over it! I'm gutted cos now I'm stuck with this forever and had been looking forward 2 having 3 pretty stars on my hip! Would a permanent marker be feasible to use almost like makeup over the botched star?? Also I really really want another tattoo possibly just above my knicker line but worried it may make the orginal naff tattoo look even worse! Advice and thoughts please girlies!
Was the guy a normal tattooist or specifically a skilled cover-up artist? There are some tattooists who specialise in this sort of thing. If it was me I wouldn't give up hope just yet - I would do some research and find someone really good - and specifically good at cover-up work - to get a second opinion from. How did you find this guy?
He was just a normal tattooist, a few of my friends had theres done there- he told me cos it was scar tissue it would make it worse to go over it. I might see about finding a specialist cover up artist- would do anything to have a lovely piece of art that I can be proud of! cos I love star tattoos, have already been planning more lol I'd like three in total. Am thinking might get a little one on the top of my ear but a bit wussey about the pain!
Lol mamazon I love tattoos too I'd love to have one on the back of my neck but its a bit short and thick! lol. How many do u have? I think Im gonna have to do some googling to ffind a parlour that will be willing to tattoo over my scar. Do you think it will be mmore painful? (u would never think I had endured childbirth lol)
