  1. honestly more like 3.5k + 1k bonus from me to get the appointments to match my working-schedule because i work alot and my schedule is pretty busy all year round. i dont have the time, never will, to travel abroad to ryan evans or other recommended artists of this forum, for a full sleeve, maybe a piece but not a whole sleeve, and then it would take me 5 years to get my sleeve done. and like i said i got different prices from artists in my country, all were kindof similiar, their work in real-life looks also similiar, what i found out is that on instagram everything looks waaaaay b
  2. thanks man. i like it so far, and am not OCD type of guy. but my older sister is a also a doctor *dermatologist* , so for me laser treatments are free if i ever want to, but i love my tattoos and love tattoos in general so would never ever think about lasering sth off, unless one of my pieces turns out to be crap. so it would be laser then coverup . and yeah there is a guy in germany wanted to charge me 3k just for chest piece, which is insane, a sleeve by him costs 20k minimum. he is talanted,his work is more detalied than my guy, but cant really see that big of difference to warra
  3. man the chest around the Sternum and nipples, that hurts like hellll, worst as the elbow area. the disadvantage of the probability of less detail is fine by me, i can live with that, personally i cant tell more than 5% difference between artists who take 5k for a sleeve and others that take 20k for a sleeve ((i mean here only B&G tattoos and not realism color ones)) i like how my piece turned out, and it took only 2 hours!!, touch-ups free forever whenever *artist said probably will not need it* so i am happy. only thing bothering me with my sleeve is the Tiger on the shoulder,
  4. really? the artist made changes to the piece as he said he doesnt want it to be a copy of the original piece. but with realistic animal tattoos its always hard to make big enough changes so that it looks different to the original piece. for my eyes (normal guy) and for the eyes of people around me, no body could tell a difference in details or contract or such things, thats why i appreciate your honest opinions, i am not OCD, i like the piece very much as it is and glad i have done it with this fast guy, he is also a friend now and all touch ups in future *if necessary* will be free
  5. so here is a pic as promised, completed in 2 hours !!!! unbelievable, but like i said, am not a tattoo-expert, but i like it alot. what do you guys think ? does it look bad and rushed for a piece done in 2 hours?
  6. thanks man, guess i will be in a world of pain on the 2nd session
  7. i am in no rush, just got mad of losing a full day appointment that i was waiting for since months, and i will not want to get tattoos in summer and sunny weather. no way. right now i am not OCDing to improve , hopefully never will, as i said, i cant really tell the difference between 20k *super* sleeves and 5k *alright* sleeves at least when it comes to B&G works, on the other hand, you guys here on the forums with more experience can see stuff that i cant see. and anyway from what i found out, pics in portofolios of artists look always massivly better than real life!. so the
  8. naah he wasnt impatient, before i could offer him anything, i just said i need some work done but i work alot and dont have time on normal days, his secretery said ok he can tattoo you 7 hours on a sunday but that means double the fee because its a sunday so 3k for the chest piece. i am sticking to my artist, i know few guys who got their sleeves from him years ago, and their sleeves look solid, no fading or burnouts. the reactions i get from people are positive, they like my sleeve, i just got a bit OCD now when you told me the other 2 guys work is more detailed and much better, s
  9. you are 100% right, i did alot of research before diving in, and still trust my fast guy and like his work, but i am no expert, for example i viewed all the portofolios of the guys above, and couldnt spot a difference in work done between the 20k sleeve and the 5k sleeve, but now hearing from you guys that there are some major differences between these guys, got me thinking, what if now am extremly satisfied and happy with the results, but after a year or two i get OCD and demand more details, what if now i love beer more than champagne, but later on in life i think to myself, man i want that
  10. the last guy wanted 3000 just for a chest piece, isnt that a bit too much ? i mean my guy and others charge around 700-800. i will be sticking with my guy, will do the chest piece this week i hope in 4-5 hours. honestly i am not a tattoo-expert, from looking at all these guys portofolios i see that all their work is good with veryyyy tiny differences, the 3k guy is the best but is it worth forking out almost 20k euro for a sleeve? the others do similiar work maybe a tiny bit 5% worse but for 4-5k you get a sleeve, i cant really spot that big differences am not an expert, and like i said
  11. yes i mean, this fast guy did my sleeve, he did my entire inner bicep in 2:30 hours, my forearm with a realistic owl design which looks really good in like 2 hours, the only time he was slow is when he done the blue eye i got, took him 3 hours. realistic roses take him 1:30 max 2 hours. he even wants to rework the eye and tiger again, i dont see the reason why, he wants to do it for free, said it can look better. here i attach some pics of my sleeve, note that some parts are not yet healed. he said he is fast because he used to do alot of graffiti work before and they need to spray
  12. well here is a photo of the piece, *inspiration photo* not copy. got different responses from different artists, all are great known artists with tons of clients and nice portofolio the fast guy, is a friend and he had done my sleeve and done work on friends, all are satisfied with results, the other slower guys have tons of photos and clients but i never got tattoed by them . the fast guy said it doesnt make a difference the time spent on a tattoo, some guys with experience can go fast especially if the skin takes the ink in good, which is my case, i am lucky i guess. so
  13. Hello i was just curios, i am planning a Chest-Piece *realistic B&G covers half of Chest* to go with my sleeve that i already have. i asked around pretty talented and known artists and got different answers an artist said it takes no more than 4 hours to be complete, while 2-3 other artists said no, such a piece requires more than 5 hours and multiple sessions. so what does this mean to you ? the fast artist charges by piece and not time because he is always fast, the others charge per hour or atleast i think so. does this mean the faster artist is a worse option
  14. going forward. the eyes of the tiger will be colored the same color as the owl. under the blue eye on my inner forearm will be trees and woods, similiar to what is under the owl. so what do you guys think so far? how is the work? good job so far? suggestions? tips on what to do next?
  15. thanks man . but its supposed to be a tiger not a lion :)). why you think its bad? i have my next tattoo-session in 2 days.still deciding on the owl
