I'm going really soon to get some roses for my daughters. I might incorporate a cardinal also, for my wife (her maiden name). I'll post pics when it's done.

Do you have an appointment set up or is this just wishful thinking?

My guy doesn't do appointments. I actually hate that with a passion, but they are too good to go anywhere else. My next free day I'm just going to head over there around noon when they open and deal with the wait. Most of the time they'll take a 500+ piece over people picking stars and birds off of the wall.

There are Pros & Cons with any artist/shop. The only con that i can think of with my guy is the fact that he's always behind schedule. If I book for 5PM with him I'd be excited if I actually got in by 6PM. Other than that he's pretty much amazing. Please share with us your next tattoo.

That's hardly even a con, really, as it just indicates he'll take his time as needed. I'd actually be a bit concerned otherwise.

And it'd be silly to care about an hour or two of waiting. I mean, a tattoo is going to be with you permanently, so NOTHING should get in the way of getting a top-quality tattoo by a highly-skilled artist, be it petty stuff like wait times, or even matters of price.

Nothing is stupider in my book than compromising on a tattoo for the sake of price. It's going to be on your body until the day you die (and even afterwards!), so even if you have to wait longer than a year in order to save up enough money to afford the right tattoo by the right artist, then that should really be the only option you even so much as consider. I have one tattoo at the moment, but if I ever decide I wanted a second, there's a very good chance I'll even make a trip to another city (be it within Canada or internationally) in order to get it done by the exact artist I choose.

Now, some may choose to use a local artist for the sake of having the art of someone local, and that's cool too. All I'm really saying is to figure out exactly what you want (not simply what you can afford or what you think you'll have to settle for) and then stop at nothing to get it.

This post kind of derailed from what I was originally replying to, and many may already understand this all or see it as obvious, but I think it's solid advice regardless, so I'm going to post it anyways!

I definitely would never compromise on price, but the lack of appointments bothers me. My tattoos take hours, and I prefer to have an idea of whether I'm actually going to get one or not when I head over there. But again, hands down they're the best around here, so I deal with it. This will be my 3rd from that shop.

white trash? the barbed band? LoL

I had one myself... low part of my life out in Vegas, fiance had left me, job ****ty, bottle of Jager down & at a friend's house "ready to tatt".

That was a good 18 years ago maybe?

The past year I've been going in for sessions here in PA for cover up work. Once done you shouldn't even be able to tell it was a barbed band. My guy is awesome with cover ups... was his idea to turn the band into rocks and seaweed leafs. Work in progress!

@VegasJ, Reminds me of a Ballast Point beer label.
