    Anyone have anything done by these guys? I'm going to Miami at the end of March and I'm thinking of getting something done. I'm trying to get a rough estimate on price but the emails aren't going through.

    their forums on miami-ink.com say they run $150/hour for tats but are only excepting walk-ins, or are booked till at least march. Id go to the TLC forum and look it up there--they have the phone number, etc

    I'm ready to spend the $$ I'm just having trouble deciding what I want. Do they charge for drawing up something too or just while tattooing?

    The without a doubt placement is going to be covering my left deltoid and up on my shoulder a little.

    Design is a little tougher. I'm either going to give them a few things related to something in my life and have them draw something up or have them draw some tribal design free hand then color it in.

    I know tribal is way overdone but I don't really care. It's not like I'm picking something out of the book, it would be a one off, one of a kind piece that someone drew.

    On the other hand, I'd like them to put a 'collage' together for me for the detail aspect. I can't decide.

    I'm a small guy-- 5'8" 140lbs. So my shoulders aren't that big and it shouldn't take that long to be done. I'm guessing (hoping) 2 hours max.

    They cost the same as other places there in South Beach. I went there before teh show ever took place as well as the shop across the street. Both wanted roughly the same for this one tat I wanted. So, I decided to go 30 minutes north and got it for $200 cheaper. :lol:

    If you're getting something done by either of them, only get tatted by Kat or Garver, everyone else is average/a little above avg.

    There will be a waiting list also, wouldn't really work out.

    Does overanalyzing/hypercriticizing get you off or what? Seriously, chill out.

    I do not watch Miami Ink. I can't say that I follow Kat closely enough to know where she is working at any given time. I do know that she is an outstanding artist. The same goes for Garver.

    Either way, Garver is going to be booked for a while.

    over analyzing? I hear sailor jerry is pretty good - some new style. Go to him, he'll probably be at miami ink too.

    I said that Kat was a good artist and you connected that to me saying she would be there. This is not a logical connection (being that I didn't say this) and I am not sure how you came up with it. No need for the sarcasm.

    she did my friend josh, he was on the show last week. :dunno: came out ok, i actually saw a mistake in it. :hs:

    (it's an escher (sp?) drawing, there's a dark spot on his cheek, not a birthmark on him, but she just flat out went too dark there with the shading. :hs: )
