    I know this probably doesn't warrant a thread, but im looking for help from a few people here, so instead of sending out multiple PM's, i'm hoping a thread might reap more responses/help/punches in the head (i've gone insane to tell you the truth)

    So there's a tattoo expo here in Sydney in early March, and i've fallen in love with a part of an artists' previous piece of work

    Tommy Helm from Empire State Studio
    http://www.empirestatestudios.com/index.php?loc=artist&artistID=1

    anyone heard of/seen/know anything more about him than what's on his website? I've shot him an email, breifly explaining what i want and asking if he can give me a ball park figure or anything, but would like the opinions/knowledge of you lovely OT'ers as well :x:

    the leaf work i've fallen in love with. the idea i've had in my head for a couple of years now for a tattoo has some of this style of leaves in it, and i've had a hard time finding an artist with examples of this sort of thing in their portfolios. When i saw this pic i almost stopped stopped breathing :)slap:) it is this style/sort of detail that i wanted to have in the leaves...

    Exhibit B Your Honour:

    im looking at this kind of detail/style overall, except there's no detail that's as intricate as feathers (unless he wants to), colour and im hoping to get it about 10x8" maybe....

    enough rambling, help/opinions anyone?

    I'm pretty sure he was at the Austin tattoo convention. He's solid.

    Most artists charge the same when travelling to conventions. I've even seen some throw down a bit of a deal at conventions. :dunno: I've seen some of his stuff on various websites but don't really know much of him.
