    does anybody know good tatoo parlors in socal, preferably in OC, but if theres one you think is good, i would like to hear about it.

    this will be my first tatoo, and the stickies have helped with info on the subject, so thanks alot for those.

    it is going to be a rose my sister has drawn, over my heart, to remember my grandmothers who have passed away. ill upload scan it in or take a picture of it later today if anybody is interested, i probobly have to have my sister tweak it, because its white ink on a black board, and large enough to cover my whole chest. no idea if they would be able to get the image off that, so ill probobly have to have her transfer it and resize it. perhaps i could do it on my pc, but no idea how that would effect the quality.

    oh and just bring the original art to the tattoo artist and they will resize it for you thats their job.

    and adrian and body electric only does custom work. but anyone else at the shop is great and has no waiting list.

    if you get it done like the inverted pic, it will look inverted because of the shading/lighting. i'd bring that in and see how close they can match its style and the shape of it. definately a beautiful piece of art.

    with what artist?

    i'll be perfectly honest the only one who looks like he should be doing the kind of work you want done is Carson. the other portfolios are good but the style is way off from what you wanted.

    either way good luck post pics when it comes out.

    ryan.

    and yeah, the style is diffrent, but what it eventually came down to was i asked a guy i knew where he got his tatts. he mentioned ryan and showed me some of the ones he did. i liked them, so i went down, talked to ryan, saw his portfolio, showed him the artwork and asked what he could do with it.

    i liked his artwork, i liked what he was saying he could do with the artwork. i wasnt expecting a line for line recreation(that would be awesome, but all those fine detail lines would be impossible), and should enjoy his interpretation of it.

    and yeah, definately pics :)
