Can I ask my artist to draw something up?

Recommended Posts

I've gotten 2 tattoos before but I drew them.  I eventually want a sleeve and am not talented enough to draw the new tattoo I want, nor do I know what will look good eventually being part of a sleeve.  Is it okay to go to my artist and ask for a consult and ask him to draw something up for me or are those things I need to handle with someone else before I set up my appointment?

This is about trust.... Find your artist. Explain your ideas. Most likely you will not see a drawing before hand but that doesn't mean that you don't have input. You have to trust your artist with your concepts. Be very clear in your consult what you like and don't like. The vast majority of artists want you to be happy and are willing to collaborate but you have to trust them.

My drawing ability is stick figures. Thank goodness tattoo artists are artists!

I've supplied some reference before, like a picture of a specific flower, or a picture of my grandma, but my MOST favorite part of getting tattooed is watching the artist turn my idea into a picture.
