Default Healed BnG Realism on the hands

I've been thinking more and more about doing my hands and I recon I may finally take the splash this year.
I had loved the idea of BnG Realism for my hands. At one point I was in talks with Dennis Sivak about doing them but he is off all over the world now. I've been looking at other really high level BnG guys.

ANyway, I have never seen healed realism done on hands by really high level guys. The healed hands I have seen in this style in real life have always looked like shit. But they have always been done by substandard artists anyway.

Do any of you guys have friends who have hands done in this style by top artists? If so, how do they look healed? I'm guessing if it was done by Sivak or someone like Ryan Evans, Silvano Fiato etc. It's gonna look good healed. Or maybe the hands just simply do not heal well?

I'm just trying to collate as much info first before taking the plunge. If I cannot find good healed examples I'm gonna roll with blackwork hands and hopefully go back with Kelly Violet. I may even do that anyway as I love her work so much. But I already want a few other pieces from her on my stomach and legs, so would like to mix it up.

Cheers guys

I've seen a lot of healed hands from Carlos Nikko and Robert Pho and they looked fine. They know they need to go darker on hands so they pack it in. Maybe next time you're in LA...��

But he is a notoriously light healer. Wonder how it will look healed?

My own hands by Bob Tyrrell.
Pics taken just now.
They actually look better in real life.
