When messaging about an appointment, please send reference photos you like as inspiration for the piece, along with a description about the tattoo and any details you would like to add. To create the best results, it is always good to give the artist some creative freedom.
Include a photo of the area on your body where the tattoo will be going, as it helps a lot when designing. The photo should be as flat / straight on as possible. Having someone else take the photo usually works best. The better the description, the easier it will be to give you an accurate quote.
