My first tattoo done by Steve from studio 81 in Preston, UK. Always likes tribal tattoos n old english lettering so I had my initial JE in the centre with the tribal pattern coming off it. Ready for my next one now!!
Compliments without overpowering. You have the bod to carry off just this one for a long time.
More tribal on your back would detract. Find a diff artist if Steve won't do what YOU want done. You are the one who has to live with it.
