I know you've seen this here before - but a lifetime of thinking "I wish this side was as nice as that side" versus saving a few hundred dollars isn't going to balance out in the end . . . 

Well, I have about 1k to spend on this. No reason I can’t get something amazing. Right?

What did you think of Angelo’s work from the link I posted?

not bad. pretty good photo realism but some hit and miss collectively. 

Maybe I’m missing something then.
What is it you are seeing/not seeing, because I think his work looks great.
I’m not saying I love all the tattoos on his page. There are several that I would not want tattooed on me but overall I like what I see there.

I've got an appointment for my next on 6/29.  It's just one hour to add a frame of nails to my first saw blade tattoo.  The shop where I got my first does a Veteran's benefit each year right around July 4th.  They donate ALL their time and all the money goes to the VA hospital in Ann Arbor, MI.  The last couple years they raised over $10k each year.  You get a t-shirt and after care products and local restaurants bring in the eats.  Really looking forward to be able to help out some folks that really deserve it.

That’s a great cause!

    • Thanks @Fig1996! honestly I think I’d probably hate if everyone in met asked me about or commented on it too! Haha grass is always greener I suppose! What was your first piece? Is it posted anywhere on here?
    • I like your tattoo a lot! And what a cool and original idea to go with your childhood home! I at least haven't heard of that idea before, so I really like it. I always like me some original and creative ideas. 🙂 As for your question, I've worked as a supervisor in retail for 7 years and therefore had to deal with customers a lot. The moment I got my first forearm tattoo, I got a LOT of customers asking about it. They all told me they really liked it, and one even told me she wanted to get one exactly like mine, and I even had older customers who were super grumpy about tattoos be like "I do like yours" LOL. Then I got another forearm tattoo, though higher up on my forearm, on my right arm and I never once had any customer or even colleague ask about that one. I love that tattoo just as much as the other if not more, and, like @Dan, I'm completely fine with that too. I know this tattoo looks good and professional; and that it fits me well, and I don't really need anyone else validating that because what really matters is what I think when I see it, and I like it.  Frankly, the sheer amount of comments I got about my first tattoo kind of daunted me. Of course, I knew what I was getting into when I got it tattooed so I never resented anyone for asking about it either, but when you get comments like "but what does it REALLY mean?" "what is the deeper meaning behind it???" daily, it does get old pretty quick. 😅
    • I personally really don't think it has to be weird at all. I'd just approach an artist whose work you like and who you feel like you can trust, and then they'll tell you whether they want to take on your task or not. I really think there'd be quite some artists out there who would be willing to take that on. Long as you're not asking them to finish tattoos others worked on/started, which I don't see being an impossible task either but which probably would put them in a much more difficult position given the differences in style as opposed to their own they'd have to work with, I don't really see many issues with this.  I think in most cases the best thing is to just approach and ask! 🙂
