I've been tattooed, but when I went in, I knew what i wanted and who I wanted to do the work.

We've moved and now my wife is interested. She has an idea of what she wants, but no sketches and is still in "undecided" mode. If I had a completed design to show her, i think she's be more into it. Is it inappropriate to go to a shop without committing to an artist to ask someone to come up with a design?

Not many (or any) artists are going to spend an hour's time (or multiple hours) coming up with a no reference drawing in the hopes of luring her in as a paying customer. 

Alternatively start researching the instagram pages of local artists and find ones that do the style she is leaning towards. That might lead to references for the subject matter, too - but those references can come from anywhere. Not just local artists and not necessarily tattoo references, either.

Especially not GOOD artists. Would you go into a restaurant and ask the chef to cook you up something and if you like it maybe you'll buy it?

Good artists are busy making money.

    • One of the good points about saniderm is covering the wound while it is still fresh and CLEAN. I don't know anyone who has put it on after 2-3 days but if you trap ANY dirt or bacteria under it you are literally laying an infection nest. I wouldn't do it.  Not sure where on your body the tattoo is, and 3 days into healing it shouldn't really still be oozing - but possibly cover it with a very clean t-shirt or similar and if it's still stuck to that in the morning then use warm water to disengage and then gently clean with antibacterial soap.   
    • No, it doesn't work like that.  And for what it's worth, in my eyes - it doesn't look "wrong". Aside from the link in the previous thread, I've never done any research on Keloid scarring. Check that subject out. If it bothers you that much, perhaps see a dermatologist. 
    • HE'S GOT THE BUUUUUUUGGGG!!! 😁 @minisoda not sure if you've let us know who the artist is yet, but feel free to share! check out their prior work and see what they're into. if they usually do traditional colors, they might prefer to stick to that aesthetic. if they do some crazy shit, they might be open to new ideas.  i think adding an olive branch in an open talon would look a bit strange. during your next shading and color session, bounce your addition and background ideas off your artist and see what they think. in the end, you're wearing it and they're doing it, so your two opinions count way more than us shmucks.🤓
