Tattoos on the feet, hands, elbows, lips, and ears are not guaranteed to be performed at Mad Alchemist Tattoo. We will not offer touch ups for these locations. It will be at the artists discretion to perform the tattoo or to complete touch ups.
The healing quality of a tattoo in these body placements is somewhat down to technical ability, but there is a lot of luck involved and variation between peoples skin. Some tattooists are better than others, but no artists, regardless of skill level will get it perfect every time. This is compounded with the second problem…expectations of the public.
A lot of heavily tattooed people end up with palm tattoos, inner finger tattoos etc, but they are often not all that concerned about it being perfect and understand the realities of how tattoos heal. If someone comes in for their first tattoo, and they want a little bit of lettering down the inside of the finger, what freshly done photos on Instagram have led them to expect, will almost always be different to the reality of how the tattoo ends up and the client will be very disappointed.
Even if the tattoo does hold the ink during the healing process, all tattoos spread and change over time. As your skin changes, loses elasticity and ages, your tattoo will soften and spread. Over time (even a short amount of time), the tattoo lines in these locations will distort over time.
