i remember when you were looking for a portrait guy. i was also and i emailed acrow prior to you, twice actually, and the guy never replied. hate dick tattoo artists...

portrait is on the backburner now since im going to do my back but donovan at lady luck is the best next to rob hope. and no artist should have a ego because donovan as busy as he is replied to emails very promptly, as have other artists.

If an artist isn't interested in doing your piece, they usually don't reply. Guys like acrow go through 100 emails a day. They aren't not writing back because they are cocky, they are not writing back because they'd have no time to actually tattoo if they responded to every person to say no. Don't take it personally.

don't see what differentiates one person's portrait from another, nothing crazy there. plus guys like acrow ask to be emailed, someone takes the time to send a second email deserves a reply back in my opinion. other artists politely turn work down. acrow chooses to work privately and not have a store front atmosphere therefore blowing people off with no reply ain't cool, its bad business ethic, again in my opinion. i've been getting tattooed 15+ years and and doing a full body suit, i've never encountered this before but meh... there are enough good artists out there who do reply back no need to waste time on those who don't.

Different photos/portrait work will all have varying degrees of difficulty depending on size, photo detail etc. Maybe he just saw the other guys and thought it would be a better finished product by him, and didn't see his best work in yours. I do agree though after the second time, it would be reasonable for him to respond. Its not like its a live, love, laugh tattoo on your foot.

exactly and i didn't submit a photo first time around either as i did not want to send a photo until he replied. i explained where i wanted it and that was about it. in the follow up email i stated something to the effect of i really like his work and hoping that my last email did not reach him or in fear of it being overlooked i am emailing once again and hope that he replies back... i was real polite like, i am usually anyways but yep no reply. he is officially crossed off my list.

I still want him to do my piece because I haven't seen work that is comparable to his yet. It's new school, but its extremely clean. It's detailed but also not at the same time if you know what I mean.

I really like Acrow's work too but I have given up on reaching him. Its quite frustrating i'm not sure if my emails are not reaching him or my ideas isn't good enough. I don't even get an automated reply =\ I have had a lot easier time getting response with bigger names in the states and Europe than this guy.

Went instagram creeping few days ago and I discover a few Canadian artist that does similiar style of new school stuff like Acrow.

Rob Noseworthy -Black & Blue Tattoo (Nanaimo)
James Tex - Deadly Tattoo Inc (Calgary)
Jesse Young - Six Gills Custom Tattoo (Sechelt)
Rich Handford - Kapala Tattoo (Winnipeg)
