UPDATE: He has responded with the sketch and appointment confirmation, I will post the result tomorrow


So I THINK I have an appointment booked for tomorrow. So I made arrangements with my artist a month ago to get my forearm tattooed at 6 o clock tomorrow evening. I hit him up three days ago to get pics of the sketch (I should've realistically received them about a week ago in case things needed to be changed) and I got left on read. I hit him up this morning to confirm my appointment and got left on read. This guy has done my whole right half sleeve for the most part. What would you do? Keep in mind that I didn't make a deposit (I never do cuz he knows I always show). Should I call or what?

I've been in a similar situation, I think it'll be best to give him a call just to be sure

Care to explain how things worked out? I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place lol I wanted this tattoo to get done a month ago but I had to wait all this time to be unsure of even my appointment haha

True I feel like I'm already annoying him though but there would be no need for me to if he did his job in the first place

He might have been busy and forgotten to get back to you , he won't mind if he's goin to be makin money

Phone him and get it resolved and you'll be like a new man afterwards.

True he's super chill and nice in person but he's super lazy but his work is really nice

When I spoke to my guy, he just confirmed the time for my tattoo and asked if I could pay the deposit beforehand and if not, I could just pay it all on the day

he knows the size he's just lazy so he hasn't drawn it up yet and he's embarassed about it I'm guessing. It's a pretty complex black and grey photo realism mashup piece so it's no easy task
