take this the wrong way, but you might want to look for a good cover up artist in a few months. I don't have a problem with your idea, but did you not check out his portfolio???
**note to self, avoid old anchor tattoo.**
The guy that gave me the tattoo is currently an apprentice, he's only done a couple other tattoos on people. So, he doesn't have a portfolio yet. I chose this design because it was simple for the artist to do on a person and wanted to support him getting hands on experience. I also felt that any errors as a result of his inexperience would actually look good on this tattoo giving it a more rustic look. Now I like the kid who gave me the tattoo but I wouldn't get a tattoo that I expected a great deal of quality from because of his inexperience. So please don't judge the entire parlor on this work, I've seen many people pleased with and recommend them for there work.
