Yesterday I had it re-done by Chris at Atlantic Studio in Rockland Maine. I think he did fabulous with what I gave him to work with.
Needless to say I am VERY pleased with the results. It isn't a tattoo I would pick out for myself today (ahh youth) but at least now I am not embarrassed to have it on my body.
Kids let this be a lesson to you to always pick the colors you want in your tattoo. Not every tattoo can be fixed later on. And even those that can will have limitations. I got lucky.
