Great content in this thread ... I sat on the idea of a specific tattoo on my left calf for more than a year and the idea hasn't worn off at all... time to explore the actual process now...

However, I am struggling to find an individual that has experience with Arabic calligraphy.... any ideas guys? It's technically Farsi... and even though I'd provide the template I'd feel more comfortable if the individual had done something similar in the past...

wait and only go to him he's the best around and worth the wait and the price. He's horrible at responding to emails so you might have to send more then one

its impossible to even contact him through email. I'm just going to drop by his shop when I get some time. Hoping he is in since hes all the way in abby! I'd pay double to cut in line but I think saying something like that will just piss him off so I'll just wait it out.

I think he runs a private studio rather than a shop.

If he's tough to get on the phone/email I would see whether Ink Boy (another tattoo shop in abby) can put you in contact.

if your willing to pay out the ass you might as well just take a trip down to Cali and find an artist there, i've got some amazing artists on instagram who are all based in Socal, similar style to Steve

Any chance you could post a couple of names for IG purposes? I'd love to see some more of the style posted above.

He's come up here twice in the past year, I'm going to get him to do a piece for me one of these days but just don't have the cash since he prices start at $1000 for a piece the size of your hand.

Carlos Torres
Fernie
Jose Lopez
Klown savaria
Franko vescovi

Just a few off the top of my head. There is littler hundred of thin line black and gray artist in Cali that is as good or better than Steve wiebe. Steve himself go and get tattoo from these guys regularly in Cali. The style after all originated there. Sooo yea if you are willing to pay double, plant ticket to Cali should be no problemo

Going to Cali takes me away from work but screw it I'll do it. Talked to Steve today and there is no way he can get me in before jan/feb and even then no confirmed appointment. He has my card etc though.

Who do you guys think I should go to? Artist suggestions are greatly appreciated. I wanted to at least get the sleeve started by November.

I'd go to Niki Norberg if you're ready to travel.

Norberg's not only talented at photorealist tattoos but composition, which lifts his work to a level (arguably) well-above artists like Wiebe.

yea, but a couple days worth of travel for a tattoo that's on you forever wouldn't be a deal breaker for me, though i know others feel differently.

I googled Niki Norberg and the pic that ws6ta posted above came up. I think that is your answer.
