Step back a bit, you’re doing some really bad work that someone is gonna have to fix at a later date, but it’s always gonna have your name attached to it. This particular one just looks like a 3 year old found a sharpie while it was having an epileptic fit and the cowboy boots don’t look any better.

i see you asked on another thread about ‘‘new/ darker stencil paper”.. have you ever used a stencil before? That’s where you place an ink outline of a picture your client wants and then you go over those very same lines with a tattoo machine. If you are shaking like a shitting dog then your tattoos will look as yours do.

sorry for being a bit harsh but I’m in quite a good mood today ?

Mac_1au, thank you kindly for giving your feedback. First of all, I have never claimed to be the best artist in the world, nor have any of my customers been told I am a well renowned tattooist. They all know I am what I consider an armature however, have left with a tattoo they are pleased with and return for additional tattoos. 

Second, I could recommend to you, if indeed you feel the need to make comment to others work, maybe you should try giving constructive criticism, followed by advice, educated thoughts, or experience related advice, in lieu of being a complete jackass.

Lastly, I am a retired Veteran who uses tattooing as a means for therapy. Luckily I am becoming well rounded in my life again, therefore can accept your "harshness", but someone else may not be so apt to accept it. You might want to consider what you say and how you say it, or someones life could be at the mercy of your tongue. Do you really want someones death on your conscious, or are you truly that inhumane?

I don’t really see why your idea of therapy should be fucking up the skin of others. I gave you constructive criticism when I said it step back a bit.

heres some more advise.... have a look at some tattoos in magazines or on the internet and see how they compare to your feeble efforts... no comparison is there. At the very minimum you should try reproducing some old school flash and don’t try making up your own designs because seriously, it looks like the last time you were in any sort of art class  was when you were around 10 years old, even basic shading seems to be missing from your work.

You are a retired veteran so you have time on your hands, take an art class!

This is a poorly designed and poorly applied tattoo. Sound advice would be to start with much smaller designs until you know exactly what each machine, needle grouping, and pigment color are going to do to various types of skin. Just announce, "free single cherry blossoms - by a complete amateur - to the first two hundred people that respond" on your favorite social media account.  That should do it. 

Thanks for serving your country; it's a very noble endeavor.   But then using it as an excuse for doing shit work just makes it irrelevant.

And anyone who would kill themselves over a critique of their work is probably making the right choice. Life's definitely got some tougher hurdles than the occasional, "you suck at this".
