SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: I saw this in my Tumblr feed earlier this afternoon, it’s on a friend of mine. It mit just be me but it looks kind of faded and splotchy, also her hand is a bit disfigured. Again it mit just be me or the way the picture was taken.
WHAT’S AWFUL: It seems poorly done, at least by what i can tell in the picture. Her tail is splotchy and her hand is a bit disfigured, and it is faded. She is also missing lines on her upper tail around the waist. Her arms are distorted and her face is oddly shaped on her right cheek. Also if you look closely near the end of her tail the lines get wonky. This is just a bad tattoo all around.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Go to a professional/more experienced artist, and get a cover up. I don’t think there is any way that it could be fixed as is. A cover up is the best option in this case.
Honestly, I think this could be fairly easily fixed by a good artist who can rework what’s there. I don’t think a full-on cover-up is necessary.
