Here is a prime example of the way that proper communication can help a Tattoo turn out just right. Originally, the customer had asked to cover-up a small name with the word "knit", and to balance the other ankle out with the word "Purl". Unfortunately, covering words with other words makes for a big mess, and an epic failure as far as cover-ups are concerned- so we explained it that way to her. At first, she was bummed- but after letting the idea of adding small roses in to the equation sink in for a few days, she decided to let us run with it. In the end, she came out with a nice, simple, cute tattoo that covered the old design just right. The key to these interactions is two-sided: Not only does the Artist have to be knowledgable and honest, both with themselves and the customer, but the customer needs to be receptive and trusting. It's a simple concept, really, but has fallen by the wayside in these days of hype and ego. Find a Tattooer, and let them Tattoo you!
