If it cost more than the Stout, you're doing it wrong :P

At the risk of incurring the wrath of all....it....cost...more....than stout.
i hadnt seen Stout at that point :(
So.....how does more than twice your ISO price sound?
About 2000 british pounds....not sure how it converts in terms of dollars.maybe a 100 or 200 pounds less,i forget. Bike got done twice because it came out pinkish first time round....
Too much. :(

Edit: just checked exchange rate, 1.55 dollars to the pound at the moment.
The us dollar is in the toilet these days....
So about 3k give or take a hundred or two.
DRYMOUNT.
Oh well. Too late now.

Wow! Who's your artist,if you don't mind me asking? He must be seriously good at those hourly prices.
Mine is just over 100 dollars an hour,more of a black n grey guy i shoulda picked better.

I just meant you'd freak cos the general consensus seems to be that my akira tattoo is fudge! :lol:
Not because tattoos are pricey in general.
Screw it,i still like my ink.
I wanna find a photorealist to do me a Brian Viveros next.
Your work sounds impressive as hell. I want sleeves but my arms are a bit puny for good detail or big pieces:(

But yup,love that needle! Gonna keep on keeping on.
And fix the akira while i'm at it! ;)
The constructive input has been noted n greatly appreciated,dude. :cheers:

All of my kids names are Akira, my car is named Akira, my pets are named Akira, I melted plastic on my face to look like Tetsuo, and I own 200 copies of Akira on bluray in case 199 don't play.

The red version looks great. Monkey boy sent me one of the black and white versions, and it is very cool. Hope to see more of your artwork in the future. :clap:
