bluebullets Posted April 23, 2019 Share Posted April 23, 2019 Now, hear me out before you rip me apart lol. I've always been the one to say "There is absolutely no price on a lifetime investment, find your artist, and pay the cost" With that said, theres this AMAZING artist in China that my artist actually recommended to me for biomech (a style you don't see very frequently.) He'll be travelling to my area, but he charges $600US/hr ($800 for me as a canadian) which would cost me about $16k. I told the guy my story of why I want the tattoo, and he agreed to a 30% discount, which would make it about 12k. Now, I still stand by that there's no price on a lifetime investment - 12K is less than half a 5-year investment in a car. With that said though, I am saving for a house and stuff like that, and considering that most extremely talented artists cost ~200 an hour, some justification is required. I'm hesitant to name him, because I don't want to broadcast his prices or the fact he offered a discount.. Do you think posting an unnamed sample would be ethical? Otherwise... Thoughts?
