My wife and I had our first daughter Giada Gabriella four months ago and I want to have a portrait tattoo done of her. I'm in Michigan and the only cats I can locate that are solid portrait artists have waiting lists that are forever long. Not to mention they are a little bit proud in the pocket book for me. Trust me I'm not saying that somebody isn't entitled to get what they want for their art, but I think the tattooee needs to have a price they are willing to pay. I'm looking to have it done on my shoulder blade and in a 6"x6" size and I think $500-$750 is reasonable. I've been quoted as high as $2,000. Just not gonna shell that kind of scratch. Just to play process of elimination too, Tyrell and Renshaw are names I already have looked into and that I'm familiar with.
