Could the focus point of this painting be tattooed in an american traditional style?

probably better projected by an illustrative styled tattooist, imho.

Yeah that's what I was thinking too, I'm leaning towards just doing it in a more realistic style. I'm just not sure how sessions work because this would be my first tattoo that wouldn't be done in a day or atleast I don't think they would do it in a day. Thanks for the reply man, really appreciate it!

I think american traditional would definitely be different and a challenge, but doable!

Exactly, I think I'm heading more towards getting it done in a realistic style anyway just wanted to hear another voice on it other than my own lol, thanks for the reply!

Either would work, but just to make sure you understand when vetting tattooists = illustrative and (photo)realism are 2 different styles. 

What are the differences between illustrative and photorealism?

Well, photo-realism means just what the name describes, ie: an artist reproduces a scene or picture to exacting detail. Perfect reproduction. 

Illustration has broader possibilities, with the artist implying the subject with his/her own flair. Here are a couple of examples in the tattoo world:
