goldengloves... could you even get work done by chris o'donnell if you wanted to? I planned on getting my chest done by him 4 years ago, until I found out he had like a year long waiting list. I ended up going with Kaz at NY Adorned and he did an amazing job.

Shit, it's up to a year now? Wow. I remember when it was months, if that. Well in that case, probably not.

Kaz looks like a good artist from looking at the stuff online. Never seen any other work though. Thank you for the heads up Neuman; BTW, how's the pricing at Adorned?

Well, 4 years ago, right as I was starting my chest, they were raising the price from $150 to $180 (luckily they only held me to the 150 price), and that was 4 years ago...so I have no idea now. Just give em a call.

Thanks Neuman. I'll definitely call them this week as I have to start to lock down a date to get this done.

Seems like $180 is the going rate these days (if not higher for certain artists). Man....tattoos are expensive...

Starting to get psyched to finally start planning this out, it's been about 2 years of constant drawing and thinking....

Looking to do a back piece. Traditional Japanese style; Two ShiShi dogs (also known as Chinese Lion) with cyrsanthemum throughout, and my father's Budo name (what he received when he passed). The background to be the clouds, etc.

Hoping to get the whole outline done while I'm there.

At Adorned? My plan was to get it tebori style, so that would work out great. I'm gonna call them today and see what kind of openings they have.

Neuman- Anyone you can recommend?

I think only or two of the dudes there do it. But I mean the shop is super respectable, so you aren't gonna find a bad artist there.

ALSO I just remember I have this NY Adorned VIP card thing that they sent to my magazine that's an offer for 10% off all tattoo work. I don't know if it's considered tacky to use this, but it's not like a newspaper clipping or anything, it looks more like a giftcard. I can give it to you if you want.

Neuman, that would be awesome!

Also glad to hear everyone over there is a great artist, I know I've heard some good things from a few friends of mine.

Man, I wonder if they could do a whole Tebori tat in one sitting....shit. haha

Neuman-

I've got work scheduled to be done by Kaz in January. Second half of a sleeve started by Taki from State of Grace. Geisha girl done from elbow down to wrist. Am I in good hands selecting Kaz?

My buddy once received a free 3 hour gift card at NYA, he used it, totally not tacky at all. I can't believe it's super hard to get an appointment there now. Used to be only a wait time of 2 months..... now at least 6. I guess all the artist have becoming cult superstars now.

Dark, you think ALL the artists are booked that far in advance?

Also, I know you recommended Reg to me. Per the tat I explained above, you think he would be good?

When i was there about 1 year ago, Chris Odonell was not taking appointments because of how booked he was and Rubendall was a 1 year wait.

What's the etiquette on tipping? Before or after? etc

Share this post

well you normally pay for the tat after.

i'd save the tip for then.

may look weird pulling out just tip before-hand

plus if he thinks its too little he may not put a good effort into the tat

I meant say you're going in for multiple sessions, save it all for the end or after the 1st? or what?
