Default Color or black and Grey sleeve?

I have been planning a tattoo design for a while now, found an artist and everything. I was originally going to do a color sleeve (color realism) but now im debating if I should do color reslism or black/grey realism and find a new artist completely. I love my concepts but Iv been looking at black and grey realism and it just appeals to me all of the sudden for the following reasons. I was told color can clash with clothing, and that black and grey looks better, so now im just doubting myself. Am I over thinking this? Is this a sign I should re think my color?

I have a strong preference but won't share it because my preference shouldn't matter. Listen to your own instincts. If you're conflicted just give it some time and it'll sort itself out eventually. I'm not trying to be difficult, there isn't a right answer to this question. It's 100% personal preference and listening to other peoples opinions on this is the best way to make the wrong call.

Yea, I know I should be following my own judgment, but the black and grey is starting to look very appealing, It looks so elegant and natural. I guess it will even itself out and maybe I'll hopefully make a decision. At the moment im seeking out black and grey artists and will put my appointment booking on hold since I didnt make a budget on my artist yet.

A pheonix with a sun and moon full sleeve. Lately black and grey really has started to appeal to me haha. But yea those concepts.
The first artist I was looking at was kamil mocet he does amazing color work.
Now im in the process of finding a black and grey realism artist (which started really appealing to me!)

Kamil is a great choice. How about Michael Perry?
