Default billy hay or Arran burton

Hi guys

I want to get a Japanese themed leg sleeve and was wondering what you thought of these two artists. What do you think of their work and which would you choose?

Billy hay: https://instagram.com/billyhay/

Arran burton: https://instagram.com/arranburton/

Thanks

I think about half the people on this forum have work by Billy Hay - myself included!

I can't rate him highly enough.

Billy Hay did my leg. (I've got the blue pheasant on his instagram). He and Arran seem to have very different styles - I prefer Billy's bright colours and bolder designs overall but surely it's down to who you prefer!

They are both great artists but for me Arrans style is very similar to Chris Crooks but not quite to the same standard as Chris, whereas Billy has nailed his style. So I'd go for Billy.

It's actually on my wish list to ask Billy and Marcus Maquire if they would do a collab piece on me!

Everyone loves Billy here so I think most will recommend him.
I personally prefer Matt Harts work over both of them,

Billy all day, he smashed my leg and now I want to wear shorts every single day.

Unfortunately I then realise I'm in Glasgow.

I've got a sleeve and full back piece by Arran, his work is great and heels really well too...He is very very fast also which is always a big positive! I love Billy's work but I hunted for ages to find someone with Arrans style so I'd say him
