  1. Um, that’s a bit, well…bad. It’s bizarre and I don’t get what you were going for. The anatomy is off and it’s just weird (and not in a good way).

  2. Weird. Looks like what id draw if someone asked me what does a muscle-poo man look like if he had big balls and slipped on a banana peel. And i cant draw for love nor money.

  3. Yikes…there is no depth, it’s just one gray blur. It’s very flat and the muscles don’t look right. I suppose the shading itself is decent but taking into consideration the whole image…I’d be fucking pissed if this happened on my body…

  4. Idk why y’all are tripping. If any of you guys took an art class you’d realize this is intentionally done in a certain weird style. The shading and stippling look amazing honestly, just cause it’s a strange style makes it bad? Wtf

  5. He tattooed it so it would age well, as the tattoo gets older the shading will blur out and look really nice compared to someone who tattoos lightly and will be completely gone in 10 years.

  6. This isn’t bad the placement is just fucking weird. The lines are good, the stippling is good and will heal up a few shades lighter than it is now, the darker areas are evenly saturated and the negative space gives good highlight. Its an intentionally stylised piece but as far as execution goes the only thing I have an issue with is the placement of the piece itself. I would have chosen a wider/flatter area to work on it.

  7. I live in Charleston SC. I have honestly never heard anything good about tattoo shops in Summerville, I personally go to Breakthrough Tattoo and get tattooed by @tonygacci or @psychicselfdefense
