You're right - I don't like the advice. That said, I apologize if I disrespected that advice. That wasn't my intention. What people are suggesting is a lot stricter than I expected and combined with what I want, which is a very specific and esoteric design, it's just an incredible challenge. But I do appreciate what everyone has said.
Though I will disagree on the idea that my criteria is weirdly specific. I want a tattoo that is script in a specific language, so having the design be by someone who is fluent in the language and can make sure the text is actually legible, let alone aesthetically pleasing, hardly seems weird.
