I'm about to get my first tattoo, and I was wondering if it is bad etiquette to ask to switch artists? It's worth mentioning that I have not had my consultation yet, it was scheduled for next week. It's my first tattoo, and I was set on one particular artist for his skills/talent and was recommended another by the studio. I agreed at the time because I didn't want to seem difficult and because she was my second choice, but I really don't want to settle for my first tattoo. I really want the artist I wanted from the beginning to tattoo me and I also mentioned in my email I would be more than willing to do a half sleeve and give him creative freedom. Is this poor etiquette? The last thing I want to be is a bad client.
