One artist shared how she gave her client the wrong tattoo and didn’t realize it until it was over.
The tattoo artist shared her epic failing on TikTok, saying it made her feel awful.
Sydney Mulvaney said her client waited four months to get the fake tattoo on her thigh.
Instead of a woman’s face with a blue flower – one of two sketches Sydney has promoted online – she received a slightly different image with pink flowers.
“Months later, at our appointment, neither of us realized it was the wrong design until she asked me why I didn’t make the beads,” reads a caption for Sydney’s video.
“At that point the tattoo was complete.”
Luckily, her client was horrified and even texted her thanking her.
“Seriously, don’t feel bad! I understand,” read the text. “I’m not even a little upset! I love it!!”
She even booked to get the tattoo she wanted for October.
TikTokers were divided over who should pay for a mix-up, with some suggesting that Sydney give her client a second tattoo for free.
“Insane respect for being honest but she should get the second one for free,” wrote one user.
Others questioned why the client hadn’t noticed earlier and blamed her for the failure.
“I mean, why didn’t she say anything while having it stenciled on her? Everyone blames the artist, but it’s also her fault for not speaking up,” said one user.
“How come you out here say you want the customer to get it for free but forget that she’s seen the design multiple times and didn’t even say it was,” wrote another.
“Don’t you have to approve all drafts before they’re placed on you? I have to literally sign my sketch before I start the apt,” said another tattoo artist.
Sydney vowed to do another tattoo when the right design is inked.
It comes when a woman who wanted a tattoo to remember her late brother got one that wasn’t safe for work.
The mother of three named Chells, revealed online that the tattoo she received in honor of her brother, who died about four years ago, looks like a scrotum.
In reality, the tattoo consists of his two thumbprints positioned in the shape of a heart.
The ink is on the back of her arm. So when she holds them up to show people, the tattoo is turned upside down, making it look like a completely different drawing.
Thankfully, Chells doesn’t seem too concerned about the NSFW-esque tattoo, joking about it on her social media page.
