  1. i got this pinhead from hellrasier two days ago. It was a flash design made for the halloween season.
  2. If a tattoo artist gives a price quote of "between $550 and $650", Does that mean its going to cost precisely between those amount or will it be more possibly?
  3. I was considering getting a tattoo on the side of my arm below the elbow. My arm has a large bulging vein going from elbow to the side of my wrist that noticeably sticks out when my arm is relaxed. I was wondering if getting a tattoo that goes over the vein will look strange due to how much the vein pops out? Anyone that has experience with veiny arms who have gotten tattoos over their protruding veins, is the look of the tattoo effected by them?
  4. thanks for the reply. Yeah i did think there were certain lines that werent as clean as id like. I might just try reapplying to the original tattoo artist i was going to and see if maybe he lets me do another consultation. Not too many people i think have a style id like to bring my particular idea to so for now I might just think of getting other tattoo ideas i had from other artists.
  5. So im currently trying to figure out a new artist to go to for a tattoo because things didnt work out with the last one i went to. Im considering this artist whos instagram is Jose Guevara Morales (@cheeseburgerchampion) • Instagram photos and videos. He does a lot of anime style type stuff so thought he might be a good choice. I wanted to get a second opinion though and post a few pics and see what you guys thought about the linework etc. here are a few pictures of some tattoos that would probably fit the kind of idea i was looking for. one thing that had me questioning the quality of his work was the Tails from sonic tattoo which would be the first tattoo in the second row. I thought maybe the lines around his foot seemed a bit unclean but not really sure. Also i thought the lines on the ears of the pikachu hat in the 3rd pic of the first row seemed maybe kind of unclean. What do you guys think? Here are some tattoos done by the last artist i went to who things didnt work out with. I personally thought he had some super clean lines in his tattoos but again i wanted to get a second opinion. How would you say they compare to the first artist i posted above as far as the quality of the lines, coloring etc.?
  6. So i did an in person consultation with a tattoo artist and made an appointment with him. During the two months leading up to the appointment i remembered a few things i forgot to mention during our in person consultation. Long story short, after sending him one too many emails the tattoo artist sent me an email saying that he feels i dont trust him enough and that im micromanaging the tattoo design so he doesnt want to do it anymore. On the plus side he said he would refund me my deposit and at least this time i didnt end up with a tattoo that i have regrets about. On the down side of things i feel bad because i had been planning this tattoo since january. i really like his individual style and im not sure if hell ever consider letting me book him again. I just wanted to express my thoughts on the subject. I seem to have a problem with finding a balance between speaking up at all and speaking up too much about things. I sent him an email asking if maybe he would change his mind but not sure if he will consider it.
  7. i would still take good care of it if i was you. in case you feel like neglecting to do so because youre not liking it a lot at the moment.
  8. thanks for the replies its not a particular image i want the tattoo artist to make an exact copy of but rather a character i have in mind that i want drawn in the tattoo artists style and in a pose that he chooses to draw him in. With some restrictions of course. e.g i dont want the character to be on all fours. id rather him be sitting or standing upright on two legs. i also considered suggesting he draw the character eating something. etc. i do live about an hour away from where the tattoo artist works. I suppose if i was nearer to him i wouldnt question if i should meet with him in person first or not. He does usually do cartoon, video game style images. Here is his instagram if anyone is interested in seeing some of his work. He does some pretty amazing stuff IMO. Doom (@brandoom) • Instagram photos and videos heres three tattoos of his i really like that hes done.
  9. i have two questions/requests for this thread. on march 1st a tattoo artist i like's books are opening and im going to send him an initial email to potentially get a tattoo designed by him. i have a specific video game character in mind. im going to send him pictures of it for a basis of what id like its position to be like in the design. im telling him where i want the tattoo placed, its size, and around how much money id like to spend on it. Im also going to send the artist pictures of tattoos that he has done as examples of what kind of style i want my design in. do you think meeting him for an in person consultation is a must? i suppose it might be faster and easier to talk about what i would and wouldnt like as far as the design goes. I dont want to cut corners as far as doing everything i can to make sure the tattoo comes out how i want but i cant think of what i can do through an in person consultation that i cant do through email. also, is there anything you believe one might not think of that i should consider when preparing a custom tattoo design? in the past ive regretfully gotten tattoos in non traditional orientation because i just never would have thought about asking about it. I sometimes think that if i had made a thread asking about possible things one might not consider when getting a tattoo then someone may have mentioned that traditional tattoo orientation exists and i would have gotten tattooed the way i wanted. which is partially why im making this thread. so if there is anything at all that you believe one might not think about considering when preparing a custom tattoo design please post it in this thread. thanks.
  10. thanks for the replies. I should have pointed out that detail. im not sure if ill go back to him. its unfortunate because the artist was a cool guy and the first tattoo he gave me was probably the best tattoo experience ive had so far. im kind of discouraged because this is the 3rd tattoo ive had some dissatisfaction with. as far as tattoo win/loss record im 2 and 3. to me it kind of feels like its unnecessarily difficult to plan out every detail and prepare for every eventuality. Ive had a tattoo artist in the past get mad at me for what he says was me not trusting him enough so i suppose that maybe caused me to be too trusting this time.
  11. Im making this thread for three reasons. 01. just to vent my dissatisfaction with my newest tattoo 02. to try and figure out if its my fault or the tattoo artists fault 03. see if you guys think i should still go back this tattoo artist ill try to keep this post as short as i can without leaving out too much info. The mistake that was made was adding linework where there wasnt supposed to be any. heres a picture ' At first i wasnt bothered by it but i started to be because its not exactly accurate. I knew that detail might be overlooked and i thought about pointing it out to the artist before he began the tattoo but decided i didnt want to do anything to disrupt the process and trust that as a tattoo artist he would know to color it accordingly. this is the result. here are some details that should be considered when deciding if it was my fault or not. - i brought in a picture of the tattoo printed on paper for the size reference. my printer did a bad job at printing it so it came out like this. I think the tattoo artist may have used the bad printout as the color reference. he possibly assumed the bad print left out a black outline in the characters eyes when there wasnt any to begin with. - right before the appointment through instagram i DM'd him a proper picture of the image i was getting tattooed. The reason i did so was for the color reference because the color on paper from my printer looked different than how it appears on a computer screen. - I brought up the difference in appearance of the printed image compared to how it looked on my phone/computer screen and he told me he was very familiar with this particular pokemon characters color. Im not sure if he used his memory for the color reference or if he used the bad printout i brought in. I know he did not use the image i DM'd him. So heres where im not sure if its my fault or not. Should i have brought in a better color reference? i wanted him to use the picture i DM'd him, i didnt think he would use the size reference i brought as the color reference. Should he have noticed that linework detail? Is it my fault for not bringing up what i knew was a non obvious detail that might be overlooked? I sent him a DM about a month later saying id just like to let him know that there was a small coloring mistake in the tattoo he gave me but that id still like to get tattooed by him in the future. I see he received the message but he didnt respond. Should i avoid going back to him? i think hes capable of giving good tattoos. hes given me one i like before but im not sure if me having to explain so much is normal? I kind of feel like it shouldnt be this hard to get a proper tattoo. What do you guys think?
  12. thanks for the reply. anyone else agree that black and grey/realism specialist would be appropriate?
  13. I like this guys tattoo style but im pretty sure he lives in russia so i was thinking of buying some of his tattoo flash and getting it done by someone in the US. What would a tattoo artist have to specialize in in order to do this style correctly?
  14. im planning on getting a tattoo on my lower leg but i was wondering what people thought was a better placement. Inner lower leg? or outer lower leg? I suppose its just preference but i was wondering if there were any reasons that either one has advantages or disadvantages to you?
