    Hey, my name is Roby. I'm 20 years old and for a few years now thinking about getting my first tattoo. Finally decided that it is time that I do the proper research for it so here I am :) In terms of design, I am thinking something alike the following image. From the picture only the outline matters, not the colours. It is basically a combination of the following:         They both have huge emotional meaning for me personally as they do represent an important part of my childhood. In big lines, the first one represents courage and the second one friendship. Initially, I've only thought about getting the first one ( the sun ) but later I found a combination of the two. Here are my questions: 1. Where should I place it? I know I want someplace visible for me yet not sure where. As for my build, I'm a tall fit (gymnastics like body ) guy, in his early 20s. Thinking inner forearm but not sure. 2. What suggestions do you have about the design? All ideas are welcome :)  3

    Torn between two artists
    Hi guys, I'm currently deciding which artist to go to for a partial tattoo cover up. I've narrowed down my choices to: The first one is the more famous I guess, and was even featured in CNN for popularizing tattoos in Jordan and in the Muslim community. They now have a shop in Dubai. Because of their reputation, they are also the more expensive choice. Their consultation charge is more than half the price of the actual tattoo from my second choice. But they said it will be deducted from the tattoo cost. The second one is only on Facebook and doesn't do a lot of marketing, but I'm really impressed with his portfolio. I've attached some of his works. Would be great to hear what you guys think. None of my friends here have tattoos or any interest in tattoos so I can't really ask for their two cents. 😬   Cheers!           3

    Has anyone heard of Huzz Ink?
    Hi guys, just wanted to ask if anyone has had experience with Huzz Ink? They seem to be one of the biggest tattoo artists in the Middle East, based in Jordan and now operating in Dubai as well. They've also been featured in CNN Inside the Middle East (a segment on tattoos in a Muslim community). Here's their site: They obviously have a good reputation but I just wanted to make sure it's not all marketing. They are also on the expensive side but i know that shouldn't be a factor for a quality tattoo. I'm deciding between them and another artist who's low key and unknown but has good work on his FB page. Cheers! 3
