Of course you are all correct (except Dominic). I'm in with glendalebully on the 24th. Steve Moore said he'd like to work with me and I'm supposed to go see him next weekend and talk about setting up a future project. But I don't have a firm date confirmed to start the tattoo, which is why I deleted my original message. I didn't want to take anything for granted and then look like an idiot.

Of course, Sushi saw my post before I deleted it, and now everyone's curious, so I made a much bigger deal out of this than it would have been if I just left the original message, and I ended up looking like an idiot anyway.

I did that with Samohin. Posted that I got dates but that I couldn’t make, was waiting for new ones, it took about 4 months to get booked in after that, I was panicking that I jumped the gun.

One thing I learned, when Dima gives you dates, you chew his fucking hand off, cancel your wedding, anniversary, kids birthdays, and any other commitments you have!

Any tips how to get booked in with him? I've emailed loads of times. Is there a phone number for his studio?

I've booked a small piece with Andrew John Smith @goldsmithtattooer. It's going on my left wrist in-between the two forearm pieces I already have. He works at Parliament in London but I'm seeing him in July when he guests at Bath St in Glasgow. I love his take on neo-trad, it's closer to traditional than a lot of other neo-trad artists but with a really rich colour palette.

Hmm not really. Persistence is the key I guess. I think it helped that my girlfriend is Ukrainian so I was able to communicate with him and his wife Anna in Russian.

I think also it comes down to luck, timing if your email, good quality reference photos if something he likes, and good reference photos of the area you want to get tattooed.

Aside from outside help, imo the best way to get in with anyone is just be precise with your email and also persistence.

Clear photo of the spot you want tattooed, give them approximate measurements, let them know you're ready to put in a deposit ASAP, give them a decent amount of artistic freedom, let them know you're flying down specifically to get tattooed, good reference photos preferably of actual art instead of other tattoos, if you plan on doing back to back days with said artist and have previous experience with back to backs I think that can also help assure them that you won't tap out. That's about it really, I don't think i missed out anything.

Keep at it, sooner or later you'll get an appointment.

I booked my consultation and first sitting with Curtis Burgess at Tribal Rites in May to do my right arm. I've been on his waitlist for a little over a year. Looking forward to it!
