    Who do you think deserves some recognition?

    I thought we could use a thread that shined a little light on some of the artists we love, but aren't necessarily very renowned or getting the recognition we feel they deserve.

    Lets get the ball rolling....

    I've been a fan of the work of James Tex of Deadly Tattoos inc, located in Calgary, Canada, for a few years now. I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with his work, and some members here might even know him personally and/or have tattoos from him.

    Anyways, I stumbled across him a while back in another tattoo forum where a member showed off the progress of a Samurai sleeve he was getting done from Tex. I was blown away by his work, and to my great viewing pleasure he had a fairly large online portfolio on his shops website: Deadly Tattoos inc.

    I'm not sure if everyone agrees with me in that he's "low key", but I can't say that I have read an article about him or seen any pictures of his tattoo except on his website (and obviously the forum I mentioned).

    Here's a few samples of his work from his online portfolio:

    I've been keen on Dusty Neal for the last two weeks or so, absorbing all of the work he's posted on his tumblr.
    SWORN TO THE BLACK

    When I first saw his feed on Tumblr.... there was a great Christ head AND a Pushead piece. I was sold.

    Dan Martin of Houston TX. I used to work for him before i left Texas. he is a fantastic illustrator and he does really nice tattoos. He was the first Really good tattooer i worked with/for. I gained a lot from that experience and dont think i'd be the tattooer i am today with out it. and i am grateful. he is a member on this forum as well.

    Lowrider Tattoo StudiosWith a little over 3 years tattooing experience this guy is tearing up the West Coast as a part of the Lowrider team.This must seem a world away from the hip-hop store in Dublin but he has transformed (no doubt partly thanks to the cheek of the Irish )to one of the most up and coming guys around .Check out Mikey Doodles stuff !
