    Yeah, I can't really find two of his illustrations that nicely 'match up', if that makes sense? And the one I really want works better as a single piece. I suppose I could look to see if I can get two of the characters. Hmm.

    Although, that said, I think I'd have to lose a fair bit of detail for the illustration anyway. I love it, but it's super detailed, so I'm not sure how much is possible in reality... Maybe I should find out and let that be a deciding factor.

    I'm not sure how much you would lose and how much could be adapted, you know? I think a lot of that hatching would have to just be shaded normally, and maybe some of the finer details made more gneeralized, but you could certainly have something fairly close to that with the right tattoo artist
