Some good news, found a artist who will take the work on, I will have to accept a compromise on the original work. But he is going to extend it as a half sleeve and hide a lot of the inconsistencies. Estimated around 6-8 hrs work.
It will be two sessions, first one will be the 14th after a cancellation opened up a slot.
I was offered a full cover up, but it would be a very dark piece which I don't really want.
The original artist has now offered me a full refund, while it helps its still not a great situation.
