Appointment request with Guayama Ink

My 15 year old daughter, Madyson, will be the one getting the tattoo. It will be of a tree, in memory of her deceased father, who was a tattoo artist, himself, with his name and birth/death years in it. We want it on her waist in the front left of her belly, just around the top of a bikini line. She isn't sure if she wants it in black only, or in color (which would just be brown and green). She wants your opinions. We wanted to know if JR is available, as that's the person my mother in law uses.
