I Wish People Would Grow Up

You know, the memorial tattoos were supposed to be a way to help people heal. They weren't supposed to be a competition to see who could get the biggest tattoo for the least amount of money. I don't see why in the world anyone needs a full side piece done. Mine is about 8" X 6" & took 4 hours including a 30 minute or so dinner break & a few short ones to let me stretch. It was probably even less than that by the time we got going on it.

Everyone else since then? Less time than mine, smaller pieces than mine. Now someone comes in & asks for a full side, full color design & gets told that he'll be charged $100 an hour for it & so, instead of being reasonable & asking if it's because it's so much work & so big & deciding on a smaller, less extensive piece, he throws a fit & starts thrashing the guy's reputation & demeaning his art. He isn't understanding that the guy doing the tattoos didn't have to agree to the terms he did, we didn't ask for him to give us a break of any type, he offered out of the goodness of his heart. He's saying "if you want me to do this particular tattoo at this size, I'm going to have to charge you this amount of money" likely hoping he'll decide on something else. 

At any rate, why message me whining about it? I'm not a 35 year old's mommy or protector. Talk to him. Find out why he's charging you. Don't take it to FB and thrash his reputation because you didn't get your way. Be a fucking adult. Stop letting your inner addict speak for you.
