A woman has been left with a rude-looking tattoo after ‘ignoring’ her artist’s advice.

When it comes to inkings, it’s best to seek advice from the experts.

Tattoo artists really know what they’re talking about, so you ignore them at your peril.

And now one woman has learned that – to her detriment!

She ‘didn’t follow’ what her tattoo artist had to say about her choice of inking, and ended up with something a little different than expected…

A TikToker, who goes by the username @hillsideboys23, shared her story as a warning to others.

“Will tattoo artists please tell me to shut up when they suggest a certain colour combination and I’m like ‘What if we did this?'” she sobs in the viral clip.

“I should have listened to them because now I ended up this tattoo, the colour’s f***ing stupid. My next tattoo should just say ‘dumb f***ing b****’.”

The TikToker’s crying clip has attracted a lot of attention from the internet, with viewers demanding a follow-up in which she reveals the tattoo that had caused the tears.

And follow up, she did.

After sharing her tattoo, some commenters are insisting that the inking looks a little rude.

One commenter writes: “Ma’am, with the pink, those look like balls.”

Another tattoo artist confirms: “Honestly tho – when I have a colour client I show them what I think would look best/realistic and then I show what they request.”

A third agrees: “I totally get where you are coming from, wishing you had done what they suggested…”

The TikToker continues to show off her botched inking while explaining: “I’m more just annoyed that I did not follow his original recommendation, I’m frustrated because I originally – where it’s empty, there was blue and what is blue-grey was gonna be empty.

“When I saw it, I was like ‘Oh too much blue’ and he was like ‘Oh we can just flip flop it’ and I’m like ‘Yeah that’s better’.

“So I was just freaking out because I didn’t like that the yin-yang symbol was filled in with this blue-grey colour but I also feel like the light blue always fades, so I really shouldn’t be that dramatic about it.

“And now the only thing I just wanna fill in is this frill around the body in some turquoise.”

However, some other commenters think the tattoo isn’t nearly as bad as the TikToker has made out.

“No, what? It looks good!” one insists.

Another comforts her, saying: “I’ve cried and regretted every tattoo I’ve gotten immediately afterwards because I’m a perfectionist and picked it apart. And now I love them all!”

“It gives me queen of heart vibes,” a third enthuses.

And it seems as though there’s a happy ending, as she’s committed to loving the dodgy design after all.

The TikToker concludes: “It is beautiful, I truly love it and I like the design, he did an amazing job and none of this is on him, I’m still so happy with it.”
