          It looks like she has a giant mole on her back which needs to be checked out by a doctor.... I feel bad for her the tattooist shouldn't had done that, at least give the woman a night to sleep on it!

            The artist really copped out on the design by just filling it with black. It could have been a very cool landscape as she asked. Also, she should have went to someone who did cover ups I don’t think that girl did actual tattoo coverups.

              She did her dirty.... that tattoo was faded enough where she could have done ANYTHING. But she got a solid black tattoo that already looks super aged. That’s so sad

                    She actually got the traditional chinese symbol for dream so it would be recognized more as Kanji or the Japanese character for it. Mainland china uses 梦 now adays

                                I got my first tattoo when I was 16.
                                Its well done but its my only regrettable one😂

                                      Her old tattoo was way faded enough to do something other than a BIG BLACK BOX. poor girl BuzzFeed screwed her over

                                        So she covered her clients '00 trendy bs with 2019 trendy bs, I thought the point was to make it look classic so it isn't dated.

                                          I've seen artists cover up huge dark tattoos with what the client asked for. A big black box should be last resort

                                                ok i think it doesn't look that bad(?) but it looks this doesn't belong in her back, if this was in her arm would look better i think

                                                  I’m not a professional but surely u don’t just do a black box over it (unless it’s what the client wants ) you would do a piece of art over it not just a black box . I was kinda disappointed I thought that the hills and tree picture that she wanted would have looked so pretty on her!

                                                    She just basically made a solid black square tattoo on top of the old tattoo and just made some flower borders to make it 'cute' 😂😂😂

                                                      wait... how is having a chinese symbol tattooed on your back cultural appropriation??

                                                        This decision is worst than the butterfly.

                                                          I wasn't sure about the black but it looks great in my opinion and I don't understand why nobody likes it...like yes, it's unprofessional that she didn't follow her request but I think the woman rlly liked the new idea and she could've said sth about it.

                                                            It’s going to look like a giant mole from far away.

                                                              She should have added some color to the flowers.

                                                                Literally the artist is so uncreative that she has to cover the tattoo with a BLACK OUT SQAURE. Like what

                                                                    • frankie051789

                                                                      • Arielle Bunevitsky

                                                                        It looks like a cover up, you know when someone has a tattoo like that there is something stupid underneath which is the exact opposite of the purpose of a cover up. The artist didn’t include anything the client requested and all the the flowers look decent she can no longer cover up a giant black diamond. Serious shame on the artist

                                                                        • Kaleigh Bell

                                                                          • Sierra Freeman

                                                                            Instead of taking the time to take in her requests, she goes to just cover it with a black spot.
                                                                            Idk the relationship of this artist to buzzfeed, but if she herself says she doesn't like/do cover ups cause she likes small and dainty, they should have gotten someone that can do the cover up still small but an actual design.
                                                                            It is not an "awful" tat but I sure dont want it

                                                                            • meach Patel

                                                                                    Here ma’am have a big black diamond
