    Am looking to get a tattoo of my 1st setup down my lower back, this will be my first tattoo so i have no idea what to expect/do..

    Do i need to draw what i want and take it in for them to do?.. Or do i tell them what i want and they do it or what?! because i am shite at drawing and i dont think i could draw decks i would want on my back lol!

    And also if any1 knows would it look better coloured in/in colour/just an outline/other?!

    And also how much is this likely to cost?.. About half the size of an A4 piece of paper

    its best to do a bit of looking about for decent artists. That thing will be with you for life, so dont go to the first skanky looking studio you find.
    Meet the artist, talk to him about the design you want, and show him the picture. If he's any good he will prepare a sketch for you, probably not on the spot, i'd be wary if he did, a quiet studio wouldnt inspire me with much confidence.
    Once he's done a design you're happy with, he'll photocopy it and resize it to fit on your back. You can check it on the mirror, and then get the ink.

    price can vary hugely, depending on the detail. Since decks will need some detail, expect prices to start at £100.
    As far as colours, i personally cringe when i see coloured tattoos on guys, but thats a deeply personal thing, you need to put some thought into it.
    im getting mine this september, found a great artist in Athens, paying around £500 for it. It may sound excessive, but its a design without outlines, only shading, and it'll start from just above my wrist, under the armpit, and onto the left middle back. Im waiting on the first sketches. bit nervous about the whole thing, but ive been wanting to do it since i turned 19.
    far too long to plan anything..

    good stuff, the guy looks professional. the pipe looking things on this one is close to the one im after actually.

    Id go and meet him, check the vibes in his place. Id want the guy who will hit me permanently to be someone i could be friends with.
    Dunno if im thinking too much into it, but i find getting a tattoo an extremely intimate procedure, and i wouldnt want just a guy to "ink" me and im on my way. Im absolutely revolted by "sailor" tattoos, that where done for £20 in half an hour, by a guy that couldnt give two shits about you.
