    Looking to have a half sleeve done. These guys appear to do good work.. If you click the link - the artists are listed on the top right. You can see pics of their work there..

    My work will be black/gray, half sleeve, polynesian and will be a cover up of a small kanji.

    Thoughts? Any particular artist that you see having the best work?

    I'm thinking Tom for my work. Nic's style is sick - but Tom appears to have the best black and gray.


    Thanks



    MAJOR EDIT/UPDATE

    So I go to the first shop, start talking to them, things are going Ok.. And the dude goes "you know what - I know a guy who might be able to do a better job at this"....

    Gives me Alex's name and number - 30 minutes later I'm in his chair talking about my new work..

    Dude LIVED in the Polynesian Islands for 7 years, married a girl from Fiji, apprenticed and worked down there for years and does ONLY custom Polynesian work..

    And he's in fucking Minneapolis, MN...

    WHAT THE FUCK..


    I was so excited I was literally SHAKING.. We sat down last night for about an hour and hammered out all of the details and I will have my first session next week. The second session will be mid January and any touch up will be after I get back from Jamaica in mid February.


    I could NOT be more stoked about this than I am.

    Haha not to show off the guns. I thought I read that ink can get messed up if your body expands too much. Any insight to this?

    Damn nice work and congrats on getting referred to a better artist for the work you want want. It's always good to find an artist who will do that knowing that someone else will be a better job.
