@BAM773 Don't worry about it, it just isn't something we generally talk about on here. That said, I agree with @David Flores about price vs speed and quality of tattoo and besides, a tattoo is something that you will have and hopefully enjoy for the rest of your life and I think paying a little bit extra to get the work you really want is worth it.

Well, after visiting several shops and speaking to as many folks as I could, I have decided to go with Steve Mast @ Designs By Dana. I had an opportunity to talk to Steve at length and was impressed by him and his work. We've decided to simplify things and focus on a traditional Japanese dragon on my arm. He was a huge help in sorting through all of my ideas and reminded me that I don't have to jam it all into one! I am going to stop by the shop tomorrow and get everything set up. I really appreciate the input I got here and will definitely keep some of the tattooers mentioned in mind for future work.

Stopped in and talked to Steve today to get the ball rolling. We both have a very similar ideas for this tattoo. I am very excited to see what he comes up with based on all of the ideas and examples i threw at him today.

    • This. I have a piece on my back that I've not once fretted over. But after I got my first "visible" tattoo I started going over every f*cking detail. This was after waiting a long time, searching for the perfect tattoo artist, consulting with the artist prior, etc. I was calculated. But as already noted, some people (such as myself) need that little bit of reassurance because maybe our anxiety gets the better of us. We're all wired differently.  To the OP, to me it looks like you got a bit tanner. Not to worry, even if it is darker, it will still look great. 
    • LMFAO @ that GIF 🤣🤣  that cracked me up! honestly I think most people just want some kind of reassurance in most aspects with their questions. I know the main reason I joined initially was cause I had a crack on the inside of my ditch (little did I know there was a thread from years ago about healing ditches etc). Then I got paranoid about infection because I just lost my job and don’t have health insurance and you know the funniest thing? This is the first tattoo I can actually see, and saw during the healing process. The rest of mine are shoulder, collarbone, back. I mean I can see my collarbone in the mirror but not infront of my face like my arm... I honestly think that’s partly the issue, if you can see it, you can dwell on imperfections, how it’s healing etc etc. 🤷🏻‍♀️
    • I know you can't tell me anything until it's healed, but what can you tell me?   I'm with you on the no anxiety after getting a tattoo. I read about it and understand it, but I've never felt it. Probably because I waited so long, researched it so thoroughly, and took my time finding the right artist.
