Before and After - Tattoo Retouch photos

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

I got this back in 1999.


As you can tell, it needed a lot of work. I wanted to keep the tattoo though and not cover it up because it has a special meaning. I designed it myself based on my favorite character from my most beloved book series, Dragonlance.

The hour glass is my most beloved character, Raistlin, symbol. When he took his tests in the Tower of High Sorcery, he was cured and given hour glass eyes in which he sees how time effects all things. He sees things dying and decaying before his eyes so that he sees no beauty in the world. He only sees death and decay. The green dragon is Cyan Bloodbane, who is the most feared of all of the green dragons (and most likely all of the dragons on Krynn) - Cyan was the dragon who took Raistlin to the Tower of High Sorcery in Palanthas when he claimed the cursed tower as his own.

Anyway, I really wanted to keep the tattoo.



Here is the retouch -- given what she had to work with, I think she did an awesome job.

I will also admit that was the worst tattoo pain I have ever had, and it was an hour of hell. I am seriously re-thinking getting my other side done!

Hope everyone has a great day!

    That looks awesome! I've heard the ribs is pretty gnarly! I have a tattoo on my finger, that was the worst I've ever felt...

    The retouch is truly amazing! It does look painful though. How neat that you designed it yourself!
