Haven't really thought about it, I wanted an opinion from an artist first, I kinda wanted to make them into two half sleeves, so maybe a smokey background for the cobra, and a fire background for the pheonix

Jay from trigger happy did my friends phoenix and it's pretty much the same as how u described you wanted yours with the exception of going on the back. I don't have a picture but it looks like a dragonish looking phoenix lol. He also did my koi half sleeve. My other friend got his phoenix done from osmosis and its more of a like majestic looking one where as the one Jay did was aggressive. But, yaaaa Jay's a chill dude

How long is the waiting list for the good artists at places like Blackwater, Trigger Happy, etc?
because in Calgary, the better artists have waiting lists that vary from a few months to over a year.
I understand that if you want top notch stuff it's probably worth the wait, but a year is too long for me.. I'm too impatient lol

Not really, I just really like crows, always have since I was little. When I was getting my first tattoo, I told the artist that I wanted to get a crow next. He told me about the 3 legged crow deity they have in Japan, and I thought that sounded cool, so I got that

Same for the raccoon. I always liked them, and thought it would make for a nice tattoo. Same artist again, this time he designed it in a similar pose you'd see a lion (or "fu dog" as they are sometimes called)

Only reason I wanted to do that was becuase I wanted to get a look at 2 different styles of how they would lay it out rather than just see one person drawing then just choose that one right away.

you don't have to choose it right away. Get the sketch and see if you're on the same page. If not, move on. WITHOUT taking the sketch with you.

I really like Craftsman Tattoo. Clint is one of the local artists on my list that I would absolutely love to get a tattoo by.

So basically I'm looking to get a hannya mask on my inside bi. Been looking up some people are saying I should check out but now its like I hear I different place everytime I talk to people I've got no idea where the hell I should even begin hahaha. Any recommendations would be great, its a japanese mask.

The places I've been told to check out so far are: Dutchman, Monkey King, I Kandy, and Adrenaline

You are listing off shops, make sure to choose an artist that specializes in the style you want. For Adrenaline that would be Aaron.. Monkey King (Jeff Tam) is of course famous for his style of aggressive neo-japanese... For I Kandy I have no idea, their gallery seems to be broken. For Dutchman I don't know either, they don't have much to show on their website so you'd have to go look at their portfolios yourself.

My recommendation if you want traditional would be chad woodley, he does great traditional japanese

Chad woodleys japanese art seemed good but do artist like him and the other guy prefer doing colored tattoos because my skins darker so I doubt I'm going to be using any colors for my tattoo

Wow, thanks for the link.. looks like he does wicked work! I might just go to him now haha..
Prior to checking out his portfolio, I wasn't too big on color tattoos (on myself) but now.. I think it has to be color!!

Just started this little Hannya piece yesterday. still deciding on colors.
Going to be a full rib and chest panel.
There will be a tiger coming down from the chest and a couple chrysanthemums if we can fit it in. Full color with black and grey background.

Ken Greer at Fat City Tattoo in New West. Ken does wicked work check him out!

They can all do B&G just as well. How dark is your skin? Unless it's REALLY dark, colour will still come through
