    How the heck would I turn that into a spider?

    Picture of a good design to go over this would be cool. But honestly I think I'm tared with this for life.

    Seemed so cool when I was 21, now eight years later and I'm not too bothered about it though I'd prefer it was something a little less controversial.

    go find a local artist who's good at cover-ups. they will take a tracing of what you have. then give them some ideas of things you like and they will try to draw something to cover-up that leaf. thats how most shops go about cover-ups.

    holy moly you were 21 when you got that! I was picturing 15 or something...

    anyway if you go to any good artist they could cover that up with some crazy shit without a problem. I would probably do that ASAP not only for what it is, and its location but for the quality of work :hs:

    I'll look into getting some cover up done. When I was 21 I was mentally ill, still am but one of the symptoms of my illness was lack of impulse control.

    Went in there with an idea of what I wanted and saw the picture. Loved it and honestly it never turned out quite as I expected.

    Not sure about the spider but I do fancy something else.

    I'll take a trip down to the local tattoo artist and ask about cover-ups.

    If I was in your shoes ( I don't know much about scottish artists) but I would go to the closest large city and do some good research about who is the best in your area...if there are no really good ones set up something so you can travel to another country close by- IMO you don't want an "ok" tattoo, you want the best...if a place doesn't have individual portfolios for each artist, just leave.

    Glasgow's right on my doorstep and one of the biggest cities in the UK.

    Place I went was meant to be the best...

    I have something I am thinking about getting covered up too. I have the artists original sketch of it. Am I correct in assuming that I should take that in there with me when I ask him to come up with something to cover it with? Or will he
    just trace it anyway?

    It'd save the artist time and effort as long as the sketch is to the same scale as your tat.

    Scotty, its good to hear that you've dealt/are dealing with your demons mate, good luck getting something you like :bigthumb:

    either way works but they're still going to want to see the actual tattoo so they can get an idea of how dark it is, what light areas there are, how much scar tissue (if any at all)

    I laughed at that.:)

    The place I went to is to be honest the only one I know of or is spoken of.

    To my knowledge there are only two guys who work there, one old and the younger guy. Suposidly I got the better one.

    Picture I picked from looked great, quite a bit different from what I got.

    I think I may wait a little while till I mo ve down south and get someone in London.

    The only other place I've heard of here is in a place called Paisley which to be honest has a bad rep.

    One friend of mine went there and asked for an eagle.......he got it only the guy messed up and it ended up with teeth.:noes:

    basically any reputable shop won't let you get tattooed while you are drunk :) .... but mainly because you bleed like a little bitch as your blood is thinner after drinking (I found this out the hard way).

    :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: God! I researched my tattoo artist for close to a year for fear of getting some of the guys mentioned here. What i did was anytime i saw a girl with a fabulous tattoo, I'd ask where it was done. I also asked my piercer who he liked. The answers I got were all pretty much the same. So when i was ready, I checked out Lost Art and kinda observed for a bit. I liked what I saw so I booked with him. I havent ever been disapointed.
