Id just like to say that I have been going to the same artist who co owns Victory Tattoo in Derby Ks. He does amazing work and is passionate about his art. He will not do a tattoo that is poorly drawn because it will reflect badly on his art. These guys work years perfecting their craft. When you see an artist, you show them what your wanting but you need to let them rework it so that it becomes a true piece of art that you can be proud to show to your friends. They do this for a living. They know what works and what doesnt work. I can tell you I have spent right at 8500 to date in the past 5 years getting art from this particular artist and he is professional and honest. You want honesty from your artist. If they are willing to take your money and give you a horrible tattoo just because YOU think its good they are not a good artist. A good artist will be honest with you even if it means losing a customer. Once that tattoo is there its there for life. Be thankful he said no. He did you a favor.
