If you would like to have a tattoo, stop and consider the risks. A spur-of-the-moment decision can be a catastrophe. It would be good to think that every tattoo artist who has a tattoo shop in Singapore is a talented artist, but that’s not the case. If you just stop into a shop if you happen to walk by it, you’re asking for trouble.
Take time to think before getting a tattoo, and look for the right artist. You don’t want to risk your body with just anyone, do you? Word-of-mouth can provide good information about the experiences others have had with various artists. Don’t just rely on what the artist tells you because some really bad artists can talk a really good story. Do research, and you may save yourself a lot of headaches. However, you should also be aware before going into it that even the best of tattoo artists can go wrong once in awhile.
For most people, their body is their pride and joy. They spend a fortune on keeping it looking its best. So how bad are you going to feel when your body has been defiled with a horrific tattoo? You wonder if you’ll never be able to wear a skimpy bathing suit again. You just know that you won’t be able to let anyone see your body again. Your pride and joy have just turned into your biggest nightmare. What can you do?
Calm down and take a deep breath. There are tattoo repairs for your bad tattoo. A good tattoo artist will be able to either cover it up or tattoo repair for you. The main rule of thumb here, though, is to never go back to the same artist who did such a bad job the first time. As far as your life is concerned, he’s ancient history. Take your time in finding just the right artist, and you’ll be glad you did. Here are some examples of the tattoo repairs that we have done in our tattoo shop in Singapore!
Having a cover-up done is the most common method people use to repair bad tattoos. The right artist can make your tattoo look like it never happened. Before enlisting the help of a new artist, however, take your time to talk to a few artists who specialize in cover-up work. Ask them to describe the experience they’ve had, and request pictures of their actual work.
Don’t ever underestimate the importance of choosing the right artist for any tattoo work, including a cover-up. Make sure you feel comfortable with the artist you choose and be positive he has the abilities he needs to make you look good.
You may find that a cover-up isn’t the best route for you, and you need to look at other options. By carefully examining the bad tattoo, you and your artist may decide that it’s only the outline that’s causing the problem. Your artist will be able to repair that easily by touching up the outline. You may discover that with a little repair you have one good looking tattoo!
Another thing that can be repaired if it’s the cause of the problem is the coloring of the tattoo. If the first artist failed to insert the colors deeply enough or used poor quality ink, a touch-up by your new artist could do the trick. New, vibrant colors may make all the difference in the world.
If a cover-up just won’t work for you because you can’t find the right artist to do the work or the procedure is too expensive, here’s something else to try. Using an artist who’s known for doing fine, intricate tattoos, you can have your problem tattoo worked into another design. What this artist will do is mask the bad work by surrounding it by a beautiful design. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with how well this technique works.
Say someone had a heart with a name on it tattooed on his arm. Unfortunately, he chose the wrong artist, and the whole thing is just plain ugly. The heart looks more like his grandmother’s dog, and what happened to the name? There’s no way he wants to spend his life looking at that mess, or, worse yet, letting anyone else see it. So he goes to a really good tattoo artist. This artist will reshape and color in the bad heart and then incorporate it into a design where it will never be noticed. Life can be good again!
Never jump into having a tattoo done. Rather than risking your body with a bad artist, take your time, do your homework, and find a reputable one. If you end up with an ugly tattoo, there’s help available. Finding a good artist the second time around can make all the difference in the world. Come speak with our tattoo artist today!
