Trying to find out how much to have saved up before talking to an artist

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to get my second tattoo, I just want to get a black ink quote on my fore-arm that says: "In the embrace of great Nurgle I am no longer afraid, for with his pestilential favour  I have become that which I once feared: Death. right now I have about $300 plus tip. does that sound like enough or should I keep saving?

find a good artist that is good at that style,tell them your budget, and ask them .

DON'T CHEAP OUT. Script is not easy, you can't go to just anybody to have then done right. If it's not done perfectly it looks terrible. The lines all have to be even, the spacing has to be right, letter high has to be consistent. 

Having said that, don't do it. Do you really think this is something you'll be happy to have in 20 years?

    • Keep looking and next time book mark it. 😉
    • Small detailed tattoos on thin delicate skin are the most prone to blowouts. I don’t think there is anything you can do to cause or prevent them.
    • Hello everyone! on Friday I got my first tattoo, a small dagger, like 5cm on the back of my hand. I think this was the absolute right decision, but I am a bit afraid of the aftercare, because there are some Details, which I would like to preserve. As this is my first tattoo and there are three questions which I couldn’t find answers on: No.1 I am currently living in Athens and the tap water is relatively heavy chlorinated, which makes me unsure about showering and washing, should that be any problem? No.2 During the days the sun is always shining. In the last few days I’ve hid in my flat to let the tattoo heal but tomorrow I have to get to work, would it be an idea to use a band aid to cover the tattoo from the sun? No.3 The possibly most shitty thing with this small detailed tattoo would be blowouts, how do they happen? Until now everything looks just fine, but I am a bit scarred to F*** everything up if I stretch my hands to strong or move them in a wrong way. I am completly paranoid about everything right now, but I think that’s kind of normal.   Thanks for the help and best regards! Anton
