Question: how does it usually work when one books a tattoo with an artist who has a long waiting list?
I had my consultation. We discussed the tattoo; I paid a deposit; but the appointment is in a year. I was told that I could change my mind about what I wanted done. Mostly it was a copy of a detail of a painting so the artist said he did not need to draw up a design anyway.
It just seems strange to have a consultation so long before the work is actually started. Like, I could change my mind a million times before then. Why have consultations so long in advance? Would it not make more sense to have bookings made, but consultations closer to the time?
