I kinda chose my tattoos on old jamaican songs I liked. my "guns dont argue" tattoo is for prince buster. my heart locket is for phyllis dillon "one life to live, one love to give), stuff like that. I had an amazing artist who was on the same page as I was, and specialized in the style I loved. We meshed well, i told him what i liked, and he created it. we'd go back and forth until something was agreed upon. A good artist WILL do that for you. My best piece of advice I can give you for tattoos is find a piece you like (even on a random stranger, I give random strangers advice & recommended shops ALL THE TIME) that someone had done...ask them where they got it, when they got it, and who did it. Why? you want to know HOW the tattoo aged, and who at what shop did it. Tattoo aging is a very important factor, cause you're kinda stuck with it for a long time. Looking at my tattoos... My beat girl and my trojan are only 4 months apart. The trojan looks WAY better because it was done by an artist who knew what he was doing. That's why you ask the age of the tattoo. If you have any other questions, feel free to email me :D
