That kind of love story..
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT:I found this photo from fb newsfeed. Friend of mine has done it, apparently drunk, for her friend. She has been doing tattoos for few years now and this is her handwork.. Tattooist is 24 and tattooed is around the same age. Tattooed girl has pictures from her new beauty on her fb page and tattoo shows in every photo.
WHAT’S AWFUL:Do i really have to say something?
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: I went to high school with this girl, she is a couple years younger than me and I saw this tattoo on her Facebook. In the comments, it was evident that one of her friends (not a professional) did the tattoo for her.
WHAT’S AWFUL: The lines in the writing and the hearts are completely uneven. It looks like there are some mistake lines in the ‘e’ in ‘love’ that have been gone over again. The ‘F’ in family - good god. And the fact that it was written by a 5 year old.
PPD Based “henna” tattoos.
WHAT’S AWFUL: people claiming to use ‘black henna’ that the FDA has PPD in it- an approved chemical for hair color, but not directly for skin, off the scalp.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: be more knowledgeable about those “temporary henna tattoo” places you see on boardwalks, in parks, etc, etc. Know when it is true henna- or when you may get a chemical if left on your skin- that can ruin it.
This is some scary stuff, and you guys should read it. I actually had someone come into the shop several months ago asking for help with a “black henna” tattoo, and it was not a pretty situation.
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This man posted a picture of these two beauties and then posted “if you lades want to be in a sexy tattoo send me a topless tattoo send me a pic of you if i like it i will get it”. This man’s a real winner.
WHAT’S AWFUL: Terrible lines, shading, placement, just terrible everything. Bottom line, this is a bad tattoo.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Help. I seriously have no idea.
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: It was captioned as follows: “Lmao. -insert test subject’s name here- got tatted today. ;) and I have the skillz to say i did it. First tat Ive ever attempted and its fire. ;D”
…are you fucking serious
WHAT’S AWFUL: The fact that the person who did it thinks this is actually good, the fact that someone let another person do this to their arm, plus, I don’t know jack about physically tattooing someone, but it looks like a full on bruise rather than a bit of redness. It could be their skin color, too, but my point is that it looks excessively painful. :/ I’d imagine that it feels like the day after getting a tetanus shot times three.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Let it heal/fade, get a reputable artist to cover it up, and last but not least, don’t freakin’ do stuff like this in the first place. Get it done professionally! It’ll be so much more worth it! In my area, the cheapest tattoo you can get is $50, if the person pictured wanted this so badly, save a bit of money, or idk, get a job. It’ll probably take less than half of a regular paycheck to get this done professionally.
Special Effects Tattooing full of “Professionals”
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: This is a local “professional” artist, tattooing in somebody’s house. This images are proudly put up on her facebook and regularly updates with tattoos she has done and ones she has “fixed.” She also makes excuses for why her lines are shaky quite often. She has been tattooing for about one year, and became a professional without an apprenticeship, weird how that magic happens when your dad is also a “professional”
WHAT’S AWFUL: Tattooing in an non-sterile environment.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Don’t tattoo in a non sterile environment! Also be sure to check your local artists and make sure they don’t follow practices such as this!
Unfortunately I’m unable to log in to my tumblr so I have to ask this in a submission, hopefully you guys will answer. I have recently acquired some tattoo flash art sheets and I wanted to know how I would go about selling these since I have no use for them. Do you think that a local tattoo shop would buy them?
People come by our shop all the time trying to sell flash. It doesn’t hurt to try.
