      Not a problem Amanda. I'm all for sharing the artist. I wish I had them all to be honest because I would give them their credit in a heartbeat. I've had issues with some claiming tattoos that are not their own as you can imagine. You're properly credited my dear. Appreciate you coming by, always cool to have artist coming by.

      It would be cool if you gave credit to the artists, I'm the artist of the second betta on the hip. We all work hard to meet clients and leave a good impression, our artwork sells itself assuming we're good at our craft. That being said our work is like a caking card, if you're going to use an artists work to promote your own (your writing) source your info. Just a heads up, I've found too many of my images shared all over but my name is never referenced.

      The purple fish is very pretty. It's a little big for my taste, but a simple small version would be perfect.

      This has got to be one of the most unique styles yet, Ricky. Off the mainstream for sure. Good advice about not getting a tat like this without some serious thought beforehand.
