Best to hit up his shop and talk to him about what you want. He does charge by piece and depending how big you are the times will vary. My buddy is 5'10 230lb ish. Half sleeve to chest. About 17 hours
mine was about 13 hours but I don't have bg on my mine and I'm much skinnier.

Mine was 3 sessions, 15 hours total. I'm 5'11" and about 180 lb or so for reference.

Horiryu also did my sisters back piece which was really nice as well. He does some good work. Check out his shop and you can check out all his sketches plastered on his wall too for some ideas.

Ryan Halter is mainly old school but he still does a good japanese tattoo and is super fast. For traditional I'd stick with Horiryu (I'm biased because he did my back). I also think his apprentice will soon be coming back to Vancouver, he does pretty good work and i'm assuming cheaper than his teacher

never been charged tax, and i've only paid cash though. If they claimed everything on taxes they'd make a lot less.

Lol wut? Tattoo shops are businesses man. If its an artist with a personal studio maybe its cash only, but I've never been in a shop that doesn't take credit cards. Ormiston was talking about giving up taking credit cards last time I was up there though because they upped the fees, but in a world where no one has cash anymore its pretty limiting.

Hori Tsugu seems to do some really nice stuff too. From the looks of it, he works at the same place as Horiryu?

Because horiryu charged by piece I tipped at the end.
My second tat from him he gave me a t-shirt and I didn't even tip him. Instead I bought a jacket for his son haha
