Should I complain to the tattoo shop owner or demand my money back?
I received the black ink for a large, 16 pt., compass rose on my upper back 6 days ago. The compass points are blacked out as nautical stars are, and I have one lone nautical star. Even though I did my research, and the shop is supposed to be the best in the city, my artist messed up by blacking out one of the smaller points on the incorrect side AND my lone nautical star has blow outs. I spoke nicely to the artist about it in person, and he said he could fix it with perioxide! I knew I was being taken and he could care less. I have since decided to go with another artist from a different shop who impressed me with his color work to complete the tat. Some of my friends say to demand my money back, and other say to go see the owner; but I am not sure if either one of these suggestions are good ideas and will benefit my situation in any way. What is standard practice when a tattoo artist screws up a tattoo no matter how experienced he/she is? What rights do I have?
Of course, I know it is there to stay. That is not my question. I am not looking to cover it up, because the mistake is difficult to notice with all the different points, and I will have my new artist work with the blowouts.
Speak to the shop owner. Most artists work independently and pay the shop a percentage of their earnings, so the shop owner could at least give you back 50% of your money. Hopefully he will take the complaint seriously and fire the scratcher!

can you get a cover up tattoo for a nautical star?
i have a nautical star tattoo on my wrist (yes i know leave me alone) and its actually matching with an ex ( i have a blue one and she has a pink/red one) and i was originally gonna do a nautical compass over top of it signifying “new directions” ” or journey” “turning my life around now that she is gone” and to obviously not make it matching anymore, but honestly it looks stupid and im not the type of person to have a nautical compass on my wrist, ANYWAYS point being i was wondering if given the right dark enough tattoo could i cover it up with a small sleeve (which i have been wanting anyway) or would it shine through? the star itself was done horribly on the color so its faded already and the black and the blue is faded enough i wanted to get it touched up anyways, so someone who has experienced/seen this please? help me out? i would appreciate it:)
Just go to any tattoo studio tell them your idea for a cover up and see what they have to say about it but it sounds like it should work to me.
Txt around a Star Tattoo?
Hi, I am looking out to see if there is anyway I can put script around a nautical star tattoo. I want it to completely encircle it and I’m trying to find out how large the txt needs to be. So, if there is any easy way of doing this besides using a compass please let me know!
it’s probably be best to ask a tattoo artist about it…
christian/horror themed tattoo sleeve ideas?
hey, i wanna get a christian/horror themed tattoo half sleeve. i already have a tattoo with a nautical compass with flames and waves that says “lord show me the way” that covers the top part of my shoulder, but i was looking to fill up the rest of my arm until my elbow. i had the idea to get a badass looking zombie on my tricept, and to go with the horror theme, what could i do in there to make it christian-like (lol). i saw this idea on a shirt and i thought it might make a cool tattoo: a goat with a sword going through its head.
are there any other ideas that you guys have that would be cool tattoos? any thoughts are appreciated.
Make all biblical characters in zombie/monster form. ie: zombified Lazarus with zombie dogs licking his wounds, zombie virgen Mary etc.
