monchat555 asked: Do you only do flash or pre-drawn tattoos when you guest spot or can you do custom?
im sure you already know this if your asking me . i only do flash/pre drawn stuff when i travel. its the only the way i have time to get someone a piece start to finish in the window of time in your town.i dont have the sources and books and things i would like when im schlepping my suit case to where you live to take the time and effort to create something new on a trip. this is for the client’s sake.
custom work you have to come to new york. at the end of the day , i draw stuff my way so is it really custom? when i do designs from the book, i try to take it out and replace it with the same idea but a different drawing depending on how specific the design is. i would like clients who want designs that i do , that have proven to be done as best as i can. people often want to push artists into images they aren’t comfortable with to have something they think has never been tattooed. wouldn’t you rather get an image or subject matter i have worked out the kinks on?
