Tattoo Protocol question


I’m considering for my next tattoo getting the skeleton pirate holding the wheel from the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland. I really like the look of the painting they did of him on the original Pirates movie teaser poster.

But I don’t want a tattoo of the poster. I’d want an original drawing of that guy in the ride, but something dramatic and kickass like that.

Now, what I’m wondering is whether or not I should try and draw something up myself and go in and be like “tattoo this on me” or if I should come in and just tell them what I want and let the tattoo artist draw it up themselves. Or should I draw a rough idea, bring in photos of the guy and then let them expand on what I’ve done or what?

I want to be respectful of the artist, but I also have a pretty good idea of what I want. What do you think?
