    Johnny 2 thumb..... got mine there, expensive but the art work/ quality is the best. Sometimes they do free touch up as well.

    thanks for replies...btw any estimate of how much one across the upper back would cost? $300? $400? custom abstract design...

    guess best would be to go down and get a quote huh?

    across the upper back? mine is just the centre of the upper back and it cost $500 so for one that stretches across the upper back could easily be $1k.

    Yeah, 2 Thumbs is really expensive. Had a small 3-inch thing done on my back, black only, was $80, I believe. Don't even want to imagine how much a huge one costs. The tattoo shops in Bugis, Peninsula, etc, are much much cheaper, it's down to you how much you value that difference in quality (think: permanent).

    ok sourced around. johnny two thumbs quoted me 550, all others about 400. going to a place called 'rebirth' on the 4th floor for far east through friends's recommendation, so the artist (lionel) is charging me 350.

    his work is good, seen it on my friend and some of his customers today. getting mine on tuesday wish me luck!

    thx all for helpful tips and suggestions.

    Apply vaseline, don't even think of sun tanning and dippin in the sea. Till it's fully healed that is.
