    I am only in the idea stage right now, but I am having my forearm sleeve done as my next piece (wrist-elbow all the way around)

    I know every artist I have ever worked with has a different pricing breakdown then of course there is always the "buddy" quotient that works in.

    I am prepared to spend $12-1500 for a good piece, especially since the forearms are really your flagship pieces I don't know that 2k would even be too much.

    So onto my question, what did you pay for your sleeve work or what would you expect to pay. I know the design will come into play of course, but either way when you cover that much area there is a general price of doing business and taking up the chair.

    Thanks In Advance.

    He was asking about sleeve work.

    I can't be of much help either. The place where I got my tattoo (not a sleeve, but it is fairly large on my shoulder), charged by the hour not the tattoo. XS tattoo in Rochester if you want to check them out. I was very happy with the design and work, but it was expensive ($150 per hour).

    I am looking at Electric Superstition on Woodward and 11 1/2 mile. I am thinking of using Jime' Litwalk.

    I have my upper arms pretty much covered (not quite all the way around) and they ran about 600 each
