I just got my first tatt a week ago but its wonky! I went to a local tattoo parlour. The lady that did it was really nice but as soon as she’d finished I thought to myself it that one half of it was smaller than the other and the line was a bit wobbly. I thought maybe it was just the ink that was left on it and I was nervous because it was my first time. I let it slide but its a week later and its still looks wrong. Its peeling now (normally) and I know it will look different when its completely healed but regardless of that it will be wobbly and uneven! I’ve followed all the instructions super carefully because I’m want to make sure it heals well.
I went in today to speak with the tattooist and she just flatly refused to admit it was wobbly. Then she had a go at me and said I must have been scratching at it and it was all my fault!!!! I don’t know what to do! I know I’ve taken perfect care of it. I did absolutely everything she told me to do. This is her work not my healing!
Are they legally required to fix it? Would this come under something the ACCC would deal with? I’m pretty sure it can be fixed but I just can’t believe that she’s permanently branded me with wobbly lines and she doesn’t care.
Has this ever happen to anyone here? Help!
