Figured I’d get crucified for that post but it’s what I’m feeling.
Well there’s a hell of a lot of distance between what you have now and spectacular. You don’t need to be an enthusiast to see that this piece is A1 scratcher work. As we have said before, no respectable artist is going to do some minor adjustments to…[Read more]
I know this may sound weird but I’m not looking for the worlds greatest back piece. I’m not a tattoo enthusiast, I just want a good looking phoenix that won’t cost me an arm and a leg. I’m not trying to impress anyone with a spectacular tattoo, I just want to be happy with it myself. And for that I don’t think I need an entire new cover up, I…[Read more]
Rent one then. :/
I’m a Poor College Student….
I have about 1000 to my name and that’s going towards the tattoo. I’d rather find something somewhat in the area or reachable by subway than blow a chunk of the money on car rentals or cab fair.
Pumpkin … works looks clean, but certainly nothing exceptional out of any of these guys.
Redemption … better than Pumpkin, though again, nothing phenomenal. Also, it looks like virtually all traditional work, which your phoenix is not.
Stingray … I only went through the first 5 artists. Definitely not impressed…[Read more]
I’ve been suggested 3 parlors and a lot of the artists look pretty good but figure I’ll get another opinion.
I work in a connivence store and it was like Easter or something, business was slow and I needed a picture with good lighting so I took it there.
I really am worried about the level of skills out there, this is what I would do…. Just my roughs as usual:) Ive also turned the head… took me 5 minutes … more can be done…[Read more]
Have you tried contacting Johnny Thief at Seppuku Tattoo? He seems to do quite a few cover-ups. He’s quite good imho, but doesn’t have that world class rep so he should be easier to book.
Here’s a cover-up he did:
I would but I’m moving to Boston for College. If I haven’t found anyone by Winter Vacation I’ll…[Read more]
Again, you were being really difficult with Pangburn so you can’t really blame him. I know that waasn’t your intent but it should have simply been “I want this fixed or covered up. Are you interested?” and if his answer was yes, then book the appointment. The better artists won’t waste time with someone who isn’t sure…[Read more]
Amazingly enough…I still haven’t gotten anything done. The Pangburn and the other artists I was talking too basically broke off communication with me no matter what I tried…I move to Boston in a week, does anyone know of any artists there I should check out?
Thanks again for all the help everyone.
Along with who Yodaddy suggested. I like Christian Perez https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1238554670
Not sure if what I need is up his alley but he has nice work, I’ll probably send him an e-mail to see what he thinks about it.
Did you even look at the convention link you yourself posted?
Haha. Yeah these guys are going to be at the convention.
Yeah? I looked and only saw 2 or 3 of the guys listed. Maybe there were only a handful listed on the page I was looking at.
I’ve obviously never been to a convention before,…[Read more]
I see a few good artists. I may have missed a couple and a a few i mention might not be the same style u are looking for, but u can check them out and decide:
And out of those artists my recommendation would be tim kern.
nowhere near as good as tim .but he isnt BAD. i dont see any coverup work in his portfolio either…
I’m not 100% about a cover up, I think it’s fixable, but I don’t know to what extent. Though I did see cover ups in his full portfolio at the shop.
I’m going to a Tattoo Convention on the 30th to see if there’s anyone…[Read more]
I’ve been trying to meet up with Tim for some time now but he is very difficult to get a hold of, and he recently moved studios so its going to be even more of an issue. I’m heading to Massachusetts for college at the end of August and he says the earliest I’ll be able to even have a consult is mid August so I’m thinking it’s going to be an…[Read more]
hahaha sorry man. im not the one walking around with a piece of shit tattoo covering the greater portion of my back. ya mad? seems it.
Haha this honestly made me laugh, get a life pal.
wow thats terrible. i dont get why people go to these hack job artists? dont you look at their portfolios? and he sketched out the outline…that in itself is garbage. the color work is disgusting but the design is terribly flawed. i could have shit on a piece of paper and it would looked better than this. i hope you…[Read more]
Well, imho, therein lies the problem. Rather than simply booking an app’t to get it done, you’re dancing around it and asking him to sketch something up and so forth. The sketch is typically done the day of your app’t, as the artist really needs to have you there in person to get an idea of how the piece will flow on you…[Read more]
Can you be more specific? So you emailed/called Pangburn’s shop and said “I’d like to make an appointment for the coverup we discussed.” And he said …. ?
Or have you kept going back and forth with him as you have here?
I’ve tried calling several times and no one ever answers, even though I then hear the answering…[Read more]
