EPISODE #13

TATTOO TALK

What are people thinking? I mean, how hard is it to find a good tattoo artist? If you wanted to go out to buy a car, wouldn’t you check out the top automotive magazines, talk to trusted friends about their experiences and visit a couple of reliable dealerships? Why don’t people do that when they are shopping for a tattoo? How hard is it to check the magazines, talk to people with first-class tattoos and visit a few, well-established shops? So how come there are so many poor souls walking around with major garbage on their bodies? Were they drunk? How many photos do I get each day that are labeled “cover-ups”? Cover-ups of what? Cover-ups of lousy work, that’s what. In the last few months, I have seen absolutely beautiful young bodies distorted by misplaced murals that turn sexy, curvaceous backs into an ill-designed billboards defaced with amateurish, off-kilter doodles. Artwork that barely deserves a C-minus in any self-respecting high school art class. All because some wanna-be tattoo artist hasn’t the foggiest idea of balance and design.

    I’m glad you posted the picture of the girl with the armpit shark tattoo. I’ve seen that in the sidebar of tattooblog.com and I can’t help but think that there will be regret connected to that. The only time it would be recognizable as a tattoo is when her arm is up. It’s a shame more artists can’t or won’t say, “That is going to look bad there,” and be taken at their word for it. I am thankful I have been talked out of one or two poorly thought out tattoo ideas by the artist and ended up much happier with the final product, I’m sure.
