A woman with a love of tattoos has been left bitterly disappointed by her latest piece of body artwork, with the ‘backward’ knife design having wobbly lines and multiple blow-outs
A woman couldn’t believe her eyes after getting a good look at her latest tattoo, a poorly executed knife design on her hand.
enthusiast had opted for ‘get what you get’ tat, basically a lucky dip of ink, and pulled out a Shrek design. She switched this to a knife inking but soon regretted her choice.
The 23-year-old felt she had no reason to fear when she sat down in the tattooist’s chair, stating a friend had recently had a positive experience.
Unfortunately, she was not happy with the outcome at all, blasting her new tat as “awful”, and questioning why an apprentice was allowed to work on her hand without supervision.

“I messaged the shop owner instead of the artist because I knew it was going to be kind of weird. Little did I know that, if you’re an apprentice, as she was, you are not supposed to work on hands.
“You’re supposed to work on arms and legs. And there was no one else in the shop. She was the only one there, and she did my f****** hand.”
Showing a pic of the finished tattoo, Malyev, who clarified she had scheduled a cover-up, continued: “The knife is backward. Why is the blade pointing that way and not this way?”
In a follow-up vid, Malyev revealed her body art looked even worse after six days of healing, despairing: “You can count at least three blowouts. The ink is coming out on the handle.
“The ink is coming out up on the blade. The shading has completely gone down. You can tell on the tip of the knife that something f****** happened up there too.”
She went on to clarify she’s treated this tattoo just like any of the others she’s had and has made sure to keep it perfectly clean.
Going forward, Malyev has plans to cover up her botched tat with a new design she’s really excited about, keeping her followers updated with her progress.
