I finally got my dream tattoo but it’s not what I wanted, I can’t stop crying but trolls say I’m in the wrong
A WOMAN shared a video of her sobbing after the tattoo of her dreams didn’t live up to expectations.
The anonymous filmed herself crying on TikTok after returning from a tattoo session to get a floral outline on her back.
“The butterfly looks like it’s out of a cartoon, a coloring book,” she exclaimed in a tearful video that has garnered 1.3 million views since it was posted
“If your tattoo isn’t what you wanted and it’s huge,” she said.
She claimed the “flowers are so big” and “do not look like the picture” she showed the unnamed tattoo artist.
“I’m literally stuck on this damn thing for the rest of my life,” she wails between sobs.
In subsequent videos posted on TikTok, the woman claimed she was with the artist
She said this time she showed him a photo from Instagram of what she wanted – a tattoo of dainty flowers and a butterfly climbing up the right side of her back.
While he reportedly showed her a photo of the stencil – since she couldn’t see her own back – he said he had to “make it my own” and deviate from the original design.
“I cried all the way home, it was like a 40 minute drive,” she continued, sharing a photo of the tattoo she received.
The ink actually looked quite similar to the original photo, maybe just with slightly darker linework.
“I was dramatic,” she admitted.
Users in the comments praised the design and told her the shading might make her feel different.
“It’s just not what I wanted,” she said, but also admitted that it was her fault for not examining the artist’s sketch more closely.
“It’s not as bad as I thought, but when you have expectations about something, you’re going to get upset about it, and that’s why I cried.”
Commenters slammed the TikToker for approving the sketchy stencil before she inked it onto her skin.
“I don’t understand how people get bad tattoos like they literally do a stencil and ask you if you like it?” said one user.
“Happens to all of us. Sometimes they don’t stick to the stencil,” explained another user.
