    So many great ideas! I`m a 6th grade teacher in Norway and is seriously considering getting my hands done. It`s really tempting when Marius Meyer is in our neighbourhood. Did you guys se the Fudo and dragon he posted yesterday? Insane!

    As I said in another thread, I was in the shop today looking at some Lehi flash for a little filler. At one point, I pointed at one of the Lehi tiger heads from his 03 flash set and said, "Fuck it, I should probably just get that on my hand." Without missing a beat, my buddy says, "Everyone should get that on their hand."
    I didn't (stupid job). But I will get it somewhere.

    Further to what @cltattooing said:
    It's incredibly important to discuss price beforehand.
    Many people have a specific budget and cannot afford more at that time, maybe ever.
    We are professionals, offering a professional service. Payment is one aspect of that service.
    Part of the consultation for any tattoo, be it a backpiece or a small walk-in design, is to discuss the price. Then you can decide if you will get the tattoo today, or at a later date.
    If you are not told a price for your tattoo, you should ask. (at my shop we make sure that every client knows the maximum amount they will be expected to pay for their tattoo session, before they book an appointment or agree to get tattooed - sometimes it works out to be less)
    Yes, we're also in London. Not mentioning the cost of goods and services is certainly not a cultural thing here.

    I haven't been around the forum for a long time. My computer went all haywire on me. Also, I had not got a tattoo in a really long time, until yesterday. And so naturally, I wanted to put it here to see what everyone thinks... :) I got this Ed inspired Tex Avery wolf/Panther/water mix up from Steve Byrne at Rock of Ages in Austin.
