Default Are these lines crooked??

I got a tattoo of the constellation of andromeda on my wrist last night -- I have been staring at it all day and I feel like the lines aren't as straight as they should be. Am I being too obsessive? And if I'm not can it be fixed? I have four other tattoos and I love them and so I'm kind of feeling bummed right now because this is definitely the least complicated tattoo I've ever gotten.

No they are not straight at all . If you went thicker you could straighten them.

wonky, go to some where that can tattoo properly and get them thickened to straighten out.

Is it me or are the stars too small compared to the lines ?

Definitely wonky, good news that this can be sorted with thicker lines as already said.

Yes wonky ... but that's what poor artists do. Poor wonky work


This is the andromeda. The galaxy. Which is more interesting that those little crooked lines .


I'd a went with the galaxy but to each our own. ... I just wouldn't want some squiggly constellation on me. But we focus on artwork not these little cliche one offs .


Good luck sorry I couldn't help other then verifying what u already knew

I got the constellation, not the Galaxy. I'm not an idiot. I went to a reputable place and the artists other work looks good, I don't know what happened. Thanks for insulting me though.

I like the idea of a constellation like you have, and actually you could incorporate it with some black work and the concept would look amazing

The lines are very wonkey unfortunately. Straight lines are actually hard to do as your arm has a natural curve. Find an artist who can do great line work and they will fix it for you.

Thank you, I appreciate it. I'm a little disappointed that I need to get it fixed at all but I'm just going to wait until it heals and get someone to fix it up for me.
