Are tattoo artists generally okay with adding on to another artist's work?

Recently I've been feeling like my tattoo on my thigh is lacking. Like it's just kind of there. It's not really dynamic or attention grabbing. It's just... meh.
But I don't want to go to the original artist because my current artist is out of this world amazing and I'd love to work with him instead to really make my thigh "pop".
The thing is that I don't like to be a dick and I'm super afraid of offending people on accident. Like, I don't want him to feel like I'm disrespecting him and his abilities if I ask for help with this. The art around the old piece will be totally original from him so I'm thinking it should be okay... but still not positive lol.

What say you?

  • I think it would depend on the artist, just talk to him. If he's cool with it, then go for it!

  • Just ask him if what you'd like is possible... and if you find him great tell him, that will help a lot :D

    • No artist wants their skill to be insulted through misuse.

  • I wouldn't take them too seriously.

    • I absolutely take my tattoo artist seriously. He's super duper important and I have mad rerespect for the man.

    • Show All
    • Art is not important. Drawing goofy shit on people is about a 0/100 on the importance scale. It's the kind of stupid, pointless things people do until something important actually does happen.

      Something like this:
