All four of those appear to be real good. 1,2+4 are more neo-traditional in their styling while 3 leans toward the american traditional side. 

What kind of imagery are you interesting in getting, and how big a piece?

Thanks for your reply SStu!

This idea (with some personalization) , aprox. 11-13cm (4.3 - 5.1in). 

In my arm, I dont know in which part of the arm yet.

 

Thanks again!

My recommendation:

Consider making the tattoo at least half again as big. That will open up the possibility of some detail work that will make the end result WAY more interesting. 

Don't ask anyone to reproduce that drawing. It can act as "loose reference material" but you want one of these artists to produce an original work. 

Visit artists 1,2&4 and talk with them a bit. In the course of conversation express to them your vision to get "an astronaut riding a jet propelled earth" and see how interested they are, what their projected schedule might be and anticipated cost. 

Review the vibe you get along with the other input and make a decision from there.

Thanks your your content SStu, I will try to speak with them, I need to personalize the idea (I want change the astronaut for me with my backpack, can be fun!)

My first option is Viviana, and I don’t know the second... I hope they use a good ink brand.

 

thanks again!
