All at once or over time

I'm wanting to have an artist here finish up my entire leg with some

Traditional pieces that tie together.

Just wondering if it would be better to get em all done or at least placed and the ideas set at once or just get some here and there over time. It's a question for the artist really but I've still got a couple of months before its even possible so I thought id get the opinions of you swell folks

I'm doing my right leg traditional style. My left leg is taken up more or less completely by a single piece - a Japanese style dragon. For the right leg I really want to add to it bit by bit, and there are a bunch of traditional style tattooists that I'd like to try and get pieces from ... Chad K., Ross Nagle, Steve Byrne, Xam, maybe someone from Frith St... Thinking of places like Smith St., Spider Murphys and so on down the line too.

So by definition it'd have to be piece by piece rather than planned that accurately. The only thing I'm thinking of is ramifications for particular places and sizes of pieces etc. I don't want to 'cut off' spaces and make sure I'm making the best use of what's there.

So far I've done the front of my quad and my foot. Doing my knee in July. After that I'm not sure how to tackle the lower leg i.e whether to do a big piece on the front of the sin and a big piece on the calif / back ... Or to really just let it happen higgledy-piggledy.

Yea that's my only problem is that getting pieces here and there might cut off certain spaces if I'm choosin location. I know an artist would have a better perception of placement and what will work, but I just have my left side of tr lower leg and shin done ATM

I say get things as you get them, and don't worry about the space or size. I think some of the coolest tattoos I have ever seen are the ones that are worked into odd spaces.

    • Yessir I still have a 2 bicep bands scheduled with the same tattoo artist. He says he’ll know exactly how to do it for next one because now he knows how his depth should be with my flesh especially on the inner bicep. He says we should be good no issues. what do you guys think? Should I continue - he says the tattoo would be free given the previous ones. 
    • It takes 6-8 weeks to heal. You’ll know then, regardless of how many times you ask or how you word the question. Having said that, thin delicate skin, like where you got your tattoo, is most prone to blowouts and thin lines make them the most obvious. There is nothing you can do except cover them up if it really bothers you. It’s been asked dozens of times.
    • hi guys, ive recently had 2 band tattoos done and it’s been 5 days since. first is the wrist band (3 lines) and the second is the ankle band (1 thick line between 2 thin lines) I’ve been rubbing Richie Bulldog certified hustle butter on it daily (twice a day) since taking off the plastic cover. First plastic seal was put one for 24 hours then I washed it and dried it and put another plastic seal for 48 hours. So I’ve rubbed hustle butter since Wednesday evening. my questions are: - are these major/minor blowouts? - would you continue using same tattoo artist after these blowouts? - tattoo artist is willing to fix them with same skin tone ink to camouflage it (after it is fully healed) free of charge - would you move forward with this? - how long does it take to fully heal? - if tattoo artist is willing to do a free tattoo for this inconvenience, should I consider it? ankle band: front view: Outer side view : : inner side view: Back:
