Tattoo by knucksbby Tattoo by knucksbby
My first tattoo, got it when I was 16.
Special thanks to
~Furious-winds for
the design.

Thank you guys for Favs & I appreciate EVERYONE'S comments! (even from the assholes, haha)

To point out the obvious- I know my ink work is not of best quality at the moment. I made a mistake about my ARTIST when I got this done, but not my design.
To this day I'm happy with my tattoo because it does hold meaning to me. I'm sure when most people look at this, they see the cliche of the brass knuckles and sparrows, thinking I only got it to look cool or hardcore or whatever the fuck. but I got this tattoo for myself, as a reminder of events that are important and marks a certain lesson in MY life. I didn't just pick my design because it looked good.
What it means to me, and what you see when you look at it I'm sure are 100% different. I posted it on this site to share with the people who appreciate tattoos as a form of art. I do realize the mistake of letting someone who
is not a professional ink me me and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, but when you live life, you make mistakes and learn from them.

I do plan on adding more to this AND getting it touched up
by a PROFESSIONAL. When it's finished, I'm sure people
will see it for more as the art it is and what it means, than the shitty quality of the lines & the cliche-ness people see on their first glance, 'cause it's deeper than that.

:) haha. THANK YOU!

I dont understand why the line work came out with such bad quality. It looks freehand and very shaky like it didn't have the design applied first. unless the original line work was flawed in which case its the artists fault not the tattooist.

True the line work on it is not that clean.  However add some color and some design work and it will look good. Just my thoughts

im sorry, but thats a horrible tatto. the lines and shadding are bad, and it just looks rushed. im glad you're happy with it, but i wish it was done by someone better.

I agree. She'd better visit a better one to fix it.

But she already told in the op that it is not the best art work.
