Tattoo experts, help a brotha out Jan. 28th, 2013 @ 09:29 PM Reply

Aight dawg, I have been tweaking this design for a while and I'm 100% positive that this is what I want. The thing is, I have a limited amount of dollarses to spend ($900) and I have heard some larger tattoos can cost thousands.

Give me an estimate before I go into the parlor and look liek a fool.

-it's fairly simple, and there isn't much shading so I can't really discern a price

here's the design and placement.

I'd go to an artist and have them do a rendition of that. I'd never get my own art on my body unless it was really good. You want something nice on your body, not just something you put together in a couple of day with clip art and google images.

Well duh

It's not like the tattoo artist can directly transfer a .jpg image to his back

I got it from google, I just pasted my design where I plan on getting it.

I don't know why I ever ask general serious questions.

I guess that's true. Usually if you want a specific design you print it out and get them to make a stencil but I'm saying if he talked to an artist he liked they could make something to get on his body.

The relationship between gas masks and resistance is the retardation of the effects of gas.
Placing that image directly above your arse is not the most attractive idea.

Fuck, fine I won't get it. But it would be higher on my back, not near my ass as the picture suggests.

I hate everything.

Find a good artist to draw something for you. You just dodged a bullet my friend. Where would you be without the good ole BBS.

Isn't resist a metal band that featured Scott "Strike" Beck? Gotta say I admire the tattoo, you know he's with Ventana now, right? :P

This will depend on a number of factors. Some areas have ridiculously cheap tattoo artists that do amazing work, while other areas have ludicrously expensive artists that are ok at best. Color? Amount of detail? Shading? Amount of sessions? Complexity of certain aspects?

To be honest, it's not the coolest.
I know that's not what you're asking but trust me, tattoos are big decisions, get something that complements your skin tone and a design that rides the skin well. It's the only way a tattoo won't just look like a lame drawing that's on your skin forever!
I actually want to be a tattoo artist, I hang out with a couple old school biker tattooers and let me tell you even they say they wish they got better styled tattoos.
In my opinion, water color style looks beautiful and can still be masculine.
