  • IMO he should think long term.
    Does he want to be an artist he will put his name to any ol' work or does he want his name to be associated with good work in "good taste."
    If the bottom line is money and the long term of his name doesn't matter- then it is work and he should just do it.
    But if he wants his name to have a certain acclaim in a few years he should not do it or make a suggestion more suited to what he thinks is better.

    Good luck.

  • I don't think your wrong. Stick with your morals and if he chooses to do it anyway at least you know you done everything in your power to stop him.

  • I personally wouldn't want to have that for myself, but if he is a tattoo artist and did work in a shop, you pretty much do what the customer wants. If he doesn't, they will go to someone else. So you might as well get the money for it. It is not like he is putting it on himself....that would be a whole different story.
