Musician portrait tattoos are awesome to collect. But what happens if you don't do your research and cheap out on getting the tattoo?

Things get UGLY.

Why look for the best artist to do the job? Because tattooing portraits is a different thing from doing other styles of tattoos. The tattooer may do a decent job on the letters or on the saturation of ink in the skin, but it takes great skill and gift to make a beautiful portrait. When it comes to doing portraits, the littlest mistake can devastate the whole tattoo.

Knowing where to get your tattoo could save you lotsa bucks. Having to pay for a horrible looking tattoo, going through the pain AND THEN having to get it reworked AND going through more pain is such a hassle. So be smart and know where to get it, look for the artist capable of doing your tattoo!
