You added a circle to a tattoo made up of circles?

I see what you are talking about but OP should remember that this tattoo is only two weeks old. That might be the layer of skin that is going to end up shedding as it finishes healing. It does look like a bit of blow out though. But if that's the worst of it, it's not bad.

Doesn't look like there is anything wrong with it to me and it's still healing anyway.

I wouldn't go for a touch up if I were you because sometimes people get carried away. It's hard to explain but here is an analogy:

You are baking a cake and you put in a little too much water. To balance it out you add a bit more flour. Then more sugar. Then more egg. But it's now too much egg. So you add more flour. Then water. And so on and so on. Before you know it you have a huge mess. It would have been better to just bake it with that little extra water.

Hey there's a reason why I pay other people to draw images for me

For the record though, that was me looking so closely and even then I'm not sure if you could even call that blowout. With the lines being so close it's not even that bad, super hard to tell

It's evident it's still healing, I'd wait until fully healed before making any decisions. As be said above, by someone trying to neaten it, they may make every line thicker, and what's to say they won't blow out? Where Will you stop? While the lines have been mentioned above somewhere what you also need to remember is straight lines (and circles) will never be perfect on your body and the artist will always be the one to get slated. But remember a body has curves so even a perfect stencil will not be 100% circular on your body. The same goes for a straight line. Not to mention, If you move while being tattooed then that perfectly straight line will no longer be perfectly straight. Back to the pointl, not a bad tattoo at all, but I'd wait to fully heal before making any decisions

If that tattoo really is two weeks old then either
a) you have super fast growing hairs or
b) the artist didn't shave the area before doing the tattoo (which would be a no-no for me if I were getting tattooed)

To my mind the tattoo is generally fine. Approximately 99.5% of the general population will just look at it and think "hey, a tattoo of some circles and a Penrose triangle" and that'll be it; they'll never notice any slight imperfections, only you will. I agree with the above: trying to "fix" it and you end up having a potentially even bigger mess on your hands.

I do see blowouts but I also do see spotty line work and uneven saturation. But like mentioned it's only been 2 weeks and you should wait until completely healed to truly see how it looks like

Which artist are you going to for the touch up?
I'm going to a new artist more than likely. I just talked to an artist I found today actually. He is doing a new piece for me in a couple weeks while this tattoo is healing .

I see some potential blow out, but only just, it's really nothing to worry about. I wouldn't get it touched up.
