I am in the process of trying to find the right artist to do a 3/4 sleeve for me. The guy who has done my other work moved out of state, so I'm hittin' the pavement in search of a new tattoo artist. Not an easy task for such major (and VISIBLE) work I'm looking to get done.
I went into a shop by my house two days ago and got treated TERRIBLY! I brought pictures, etc. and was looking to do a consultation with an artist about what I'm wanting to get done. The gal who does the scheduling (I think she's their piercing person) gave me rude looks and did not seem eager to talk with me about the tattoo I'm getting (that IS her job, you know). When I began to describe the work I want to get done (so she could recommend an artist who specializes in doing this kind of work), she cut me off. She was soo rude.
THEN, I told her I have this week off of work and would really like to get started on the drawing this week. Ten minutes later she came back and said, "Thursday at noon is the soonest we can consult with you." REALLY!?!? FIVE days later??!?! Most shops are just ITCHING to get a client in for a consultation who is going to spend $1000+ dollars in their shop!! This is a 3/4 sleeve, after all. Most shops do same-day consultations.
Anyway, I scheduled the consultation, because I really liked the artist she set me up with. But this has been bugging me for two days now. I think I'm gonna' cancel and take my business elsewhere. Would you cancel??
Grrr. I'm still pissed.
