that is a tough one. Thinking back to when my sister got her tattoo...she went with someone that knew what she wanted and my sister did not like any on the book so the artist drew up something for her with stars, a lightening bolt and clouds...it is on her ankle and it is awful...but the tattoo itself is done well.
She has never asked me if I liked it and I have never told her I hate it. My response when she showed me was 'cool'.
My tattoo is a lower back tattoo and while I love it I know others hate it-though they have never said so. I can live with that. What I do not like about my tattoo is that there are spots where I do not feel the tattoo artist came to a good point and I swear it is crooked and there are raised spots on my back from too much ink I am sure...but nobody will say anything to me and I cannot see it straight on so don't know for sure.
So while I like my tattoo, I think my sister's tattoo artist was better than mine.
I, had an appointment with an artist, he could not make it that day, so I just went with the guy that was there because he could do it then. In hindsight I should have waited but I did not and I can accept that...it is not like anyone but my husband sees my tattoo regularly so he is the only one that would notice anyways...it is not on my neck.
My advice to all would be not to rush it, but I know when you have your mind set on something sometimes you get impatient.
Hopefully they will never ask you for your real opinion of the tattoos. Best thing for you to do is to have an answer ready, something vague and non-committal...
When you get a bad tattoo it is really the artist that is bad...do your research...look through portfolios...get someone that is familiar with what you want, not the one that has done the most.
