 I do what any good shop assistant / apprentice does, promote the shop.

Good tattoos are hard to come by, check out this last one my boss did on a close friend of mine.



completed in two months, 35 hours total time, one week apart sessions. this bad boy has won best back piece at Ink N Iron 2009, and best back piece and best japanese at TattooLaPalooza Miami 2009.

150 an hour, and is super fast, he only counts actual ink time, so if he spends an hour or so drawing on you, thats not charged.

you do realize on average a piece like that would go for 10 grand up right? 5k for a full back piece is border line stealing.

I go to Brian Bruno (Absolute Art, Richmond,VA)He charges the same $150 rate. I have found that most artist when doing something large usually cut a little of a break on price. I tell him up front how much money I have to spend and he just tattoos until he reaches a good stopping point. I spent 400 on my last session and was there for 6-7 hours. There was breaks and he drew in a lot of the background. He's a badass artist. I'd post pics but it's hard explaining to my girl I want her to snap some shots of my naked ass and back so I can show it to the guys on the MMA forum.

 congrats renato, you are offically the third person to assume that was a girl. that infact is a 5 foot 2 vietnamese boy. his hips are flared out cause of the way he is standing.

dont worry, the last guy that was jocking was standing next to my buddy, the guy who owns the tattoo

 I've actually got a Bill Canales original black & grey piece on my calf that Bill did personally back in 96-97.
Still my favorite tattoo. I see his flash in a lot of shops. Very talented artist.

 I have never liked the Japanese tattoos, but whoever did that is a very talented artist.
