This is exactly why I will never get a portrait tat. I would love one of my kids, but I am way too afraid of it coming out shitty like this…even if I did pay big bucks for an excellent artist. I really hope the person that got this tat refused to pay or something. I wouldn’t pay. And if they called the police, well any cop could see how horrible it is and would agree!
There must be a tragedy that fueled the desire to get this tattoo; it seems to me the little girl may have died tragically and her mother or father wanted to honor her memory by getting this tattoo. Even more tragic that the tattoist botched the job so horribly. It would pay to research a lot of different tattooists’ portfolios before deciding on someone who actually knows how to get a portrait right.
