I have a love hate relationship with fresh tattoo pictures. Obviously an artist wants to document the work that they did, but a healed picture would be much more ideal. Unfortunately that’s not always possible due to logistics, and let’s not even get into the part about clients not healing pieces correctly.
In the perfect world, every client would heal their tattoo well and come back to allow the artist to take healed pictures. I don’t think that will ever happen, but I can dream.
