i DM'd a tattoo artist i want to book on instagram and he said hed love to do the tattoo for me. he gave me a price range and he told me two dates hed be available but when i asked what time would be okay for him for one of the dates he didnt respond. 

all of this took place within two DM exchanges (2 from me, 2 from him) which he responded to in about 1-2 days. on i think last thursday he posted on his instagram that he would be answering all of his emails and DMs that day and the next but my DM still didnt get answered. I waited about five days (since the last DM i sent) and sent him a DM again asking about what time would be okay for him. its now been a week and he still hasnt responded.

today was actually one of the two dates he said hed be available so i obviously didnt meet with him. the other date he said he was available on is coming up next week so im still hoping ill get a response before then. i plan on sending him another DM maybe thursday to try and get some confirmation on meeting up for an appointment.

on one hand 

-he said hed love to do it 

-he gave me a price 

-he gave me dates hed be available 


on the other hand 

- his responses went from 1-2 days to it being a week with no reply 
- he posted on his instagram that hed be answering all of his DMs and emails but didnt reply to my DM 

- one of the dates he said he was available has already passed with no response from him 


im not sure what to think.

    • I was able to add a picture I understand it will heal and fade eventually but I think the contrast of the ink is a different shade then the ink I already have. Also I feel like it’s a very busy tattoo for not being done.. can the white ink really change that like he says?
    • the new hand tattoo will be darker brighter more vivid than the rest of your  settled in sleeves.The hand tattoo will probably look more cohesive and not stand out so much once it settles in 6 months (without seeing it)
    • About two weeks ago I got my first hand tattoo, not my first tattoo or anything I have both sleeves done completely and even a neck tattoo. The hand tattoo is a tribute to my grandpa, it is a anchor with a banner with his name and there is a spider web to fill the rest of my hand as background. I would post a picture but I am writing this off a computer.  anyways I feel like the tattoo came out very dark in contrast compared to the rest of my sleeve it stands out and doesn't flow at all with it almost like I have a dark glove on, Idk if he did this because it is my hand and it does not hold ink as well so he was planning ahead but the web is very dark and over powers the anchor and my hand is covered in black ink. I know it is a new tattoo and its still angry and it will fade and calm down into a lighter color once it has healed but it still looks like its gonna have a darker contrast then the rest of the ink going all the way up my arm. I talked to my artist and he said the tattoo isn't done and there is still a lot of detail and white ink to be added to the whole tattoo to make it look better. but when i look at it it doesn't look like much can really be done because how covered my hand is in black ink from the web so I'm not sure what his plan really is . can the white ink he plans to throw in there really change the whole tattoo and how it looks/flows? Can tattoos look like this when they are unfinished and still need detail?  He is a great artist and I have been going to him for over a year now and I trust him because of the amazing sleeve he's done. I've heard of post anxiety from tattoos and I've defiantly had it before for maybe one or two out of the countless tattoos I have so I am aware it happens.  also maybe because its my hand and its uncoverable and always right in front of me maybe that is making the post tattoo anxiety a lot more intense? Brand new here was hoping to get some feed back maybe from some people that has experienced the same or tattoo artist out there that might have a response to this. Thank You.
