What is the etiquette for getting tattoos touched up - I have two back/shoulder Iban designs, one was touched up by the original artist (basically overdone entirely). The other I can’t go back to the original artist as he is half way round the world. I do have a familiar rapport with him though. The latter tattoo could benefit from a touch up, I’ve given it ten months to bleed/blend - it was hand poked. Now, do I ask him for a recommended artist in London/SE, or just find someone who does the same style? I have someone in mind who has tattooed a friend.
It is all black work - is one black ink the same as another? Getting a touch up from a different artist present any problems (other than paying for it).
