I've got a few planed out, just haven't got around to sticking them yet. One will be paw prints, we stamped his paws the week he had to be taken in so I have his actual prints. My second one will be done in black and gray portrait style. If you do decide to go with portrait style tattoo make sure you check out the artist's portfolio and that they are expierinced with photo realism. Photo realism is something that takes a lot of time to perfect and a lot of artists that are amazing at color work and other styles are not so great when it comes to portraits. Don't be afraid to be picky either. If an artists is acting like your being to picky and seem annoyed go somewhere else. We work for YOU, it is our job as artist to please out customers. You can have an amazingly well done tattoo but of its not what the client wanted then you have failed your job as a tattoo artist no matter how good of quality the work is. Another small piece of advice, don't trust anyone who refers to their machine as a gun
They are not guns they are machines and a professional shouldn't call them such. Personally I think it's annoying, and I always correct people that call them that lol.
