If you EVER decide to get a portrait style tattoo, first get a "real" artist to render an interpretation of the image. Then make certain the tattoo artist has portrait style portfolio skill. Sometimes one person can do it all, many times the tattoo artist lacks the skill. I have two large portraits in a sleeve of ink, I get many positive comments about them. Both images were created by artists that I gave photos to, then they were inked by a seperate tattoo artists.
