I figured I'd post in the thread for general advice. I'm looking to get the skull from Epicus Doomicus Metallicus done for Christmas OFFICIALLY this time, but where should I get it done? I thought on the right arm but I'm undecided.
Also artists in the bay area you might be able to recommend would be awesome.

Gotta go with a face tat. You'll look like Bushman from the Moon Knight comics.

Yeah I think placement is the absolute last thing you would want consultation from other people on. We would need to see your intended piece, with dimensions, and your full naked body with possible measurements. We have no idea where your current tattoos are!

So, got this done last week.

Spoiler: show

This is from an old PS2 game I used to (over)play as a kid called The Mark of Kri. In the game, the symbol is representative of an ancient evil spell that can draw on the horrors of the dark spirit world to enslave and destroy mankind. Realizing its potential for destruction, somebody in the game (they never say who) stole the spell and broke it into six different parts, branded on the bodies of six family lines forever, with the next of kin inheriting their mark from the one before them. Took 4 hours to do all in one go. Once it's fully healed, I intend to get the smoke surrounding it from the game's intro animatic put on there as well going up the rest of the bicep and around the symbol itself. (see below, but you can't really see the detail all that well).

Right now it's peeling (just had to clean a bunch of black stuff off my bed this morning), so hopefully it'll all be good in another week or two.

I loved that game as a kid, and I just rediscovered it recently and remembered how much I loved it, hence my choice to get that put on me. The fun part now will be trying to figure out what else I can get put on this arm style and topic-wise that'll fit the inevitable sleeve.

I can finally afford to get another tattoo, and I've been going over ideas for a few days. Thinking about some kind of life/death motif, which will probably take one of two forms:

1: A skull with flowers and vegetation growing out of it
2. An old-style pocket watch, perhaps with bones for the hands. The "Life" half will be on top, featuring bright, colorful flowers and such, with the "death" side in black and white featuring a lonely grave or something.

Those are the ideas I'm toying with, but I'm definitely not set on anything yet.
