  11. That's kinda cool....getting any shading, or leaving as is?

    I just got this done....little bit to add at the back of the tricep. Is a cover up for my first tat...a really bad tribal piece!

  12. Nice.

  13. Cheers
  14. Awesome.

    so judging by the previous comment that should go for around $1000?
  15. It would be close.

    That's at least a two sitting Tattoo at 3 - 4 hours each.
  16. 2 sittings at 7 hrs, $1600 so far.

    It's all completely dependant on the type of tattoo (whether its a 'regular' tat, realistic, etc), and also on the artist. I was happy to pay a bit more to get one I am happy with.

    Also, being a cover up takes a bit more time/ink. And for curiosity, I had 2 laser treatments done prior.

  17. Ah the cover up.
    Makes sense.

    I was thinking 1.6k is a bit steep untill you mentioned that.
  18. Very nice man. I was living on the other side of the world when I got my first one, so my mum couldn't do much about it. It took me a week to work up the courage to tell her. Her first question was "Is it permanent?"

    I've got a vintage motoring/motorsport sleeve in (very slow) progress.
