Btw we all have wonkey bodies, it's mostly legs with one being longer than the other!
I definitely agree that its placed right, but when I first got it I was so anxious and over analyzed the fuck out of it. My point is more that eventually one comes to appreciate their tattoos. Tattoo artists aren't laser printers and the human body is far from symmetrical.

Thanks everyone - that is reassuring. I keep making it worse by ruminating on it and looking at photos of myself without it which I know is completely unhelpful but I canít stop myself!

I very much appreciate all your answers and it has made me feel much better that no one has responded saying itís shit. Iím sure I canít feel this way forever so Iím just hoping it will pass eventually.

It takes time, trust me, but it will happen. Just do your best to keep the thought out of your head and focus on other things in your life. Eventually you'll forget all about it being an issue. It just takes a good amount of time with no actual negative effects for you to realize it's not as big a deal as you think it is.

it looks good to me. I have a full chest/stomach piece and it looks out of line because it turns out my body is a bit of a odd shape lol I still love it though
