    Every tattooist i visit has no appointments or time to do the tattoos for months on end. I have the money and the work i want done ready yet none of these places will do it quickly like within 1-2 weeks. It's always over a month of waiting for an appointment.

    Half the time they don't reply to messages for quotes either and i have to travel all the way to the shop just to get a quote which he then can't do for months anyway.

    Are all tattooists this busy where you live? or is it just where i live? (west mids)

    I know plenty of people who have had to wait months. If an artist is popular due to being respectable and excellent at what they do, they're going to be booked up for a good amount of time. I'd rather wait months and get a tattoo by someone highly skilled than get it done asap and end up with a terribly done tattoo that'll only need covering up in the future. Patience is key

    waiting times are very normal, and depending on the artist and their popularity often determines how long their waiting list are!
    I'm an apprentice in Manchester and have space available!
    Check out my instagram 'fairyfreshhhh' and see if it's similar to what you're wanting, or just send me over your idea and I'll let you know if me or someone near by will be best for the job!
