Either way, all the characters ( Especially Oogie) are all wide at the bottom of their bodies, I wouldn't have been able to fit them all the other way around. Also I don't plan to add more up my arm so it's fine the way it was positioned.
Because the original tattoo ( which you don't see in this shot) started out with only Jack's torso on my inner wrist. I then slowly started adding to it ( the Jack scenery) so I had to keep following in the same direction to make sense of it.
Believe it or not the one on the left WAS done in a professional shop over here. The one on the right was done by my friend who runs an at home tattoo business, ( no worries everything is sanitary and she has health and safety inspectors pop by regularly).
