The midwest definitely does not get enough love on this board, most really stunning tattooers set up shop on the coasts and for obvious reasons. So, this is the thread to talk about the men and women who don't get enough praise and/or recognition!
Who do you like in the Midwest? I know there are good tattooers everywhere but they're a little harder to find around here it seems...
if Utah is considered the Midwest, than the dudes at Cathedral Tattoo
Ryan Cooper Thompson does some really cool stuff
The folks at Lifetime Tattoo, if Colorado counts
CTC holds it down
Ryan Cooper Thompson is legit.
There are a few good people in Wichita (Josh Cruse, Steve Turner, Denis McPhail)
I know Texas is considered a part of the South, but as far a no coast vibe goes, the tattooing there speaks for itself.
