Mike wilson fast or not?

86 posts in this topic

Just had a question if he was a fast tattooer or not for those who have been tattooed by him?

Thanks to @ avery for the heads up. Google mapped the shop and it's only 5 hrs tops from my place. Will be a sick graduation gift to myself in june

Gotta agree with hogg... his speed isn't a factor here. Go get tattooed by him and treat yourself to a graduation gift. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks all, not a factor in the slightest. Just wondering since I'll be more than likely making a couple trips.

Damn I suck at this tagging mess. Thanks

Wilson tattoo wins every time. Fast or not.

That being said, he did a huge backpiece sized Pharoah's horses on my buddy that took a rough total of around 6 hours between 2 sittings.

So yeah, fast.

glad youre heeding everyones advice and not taking the easy closer route!

No sir!

I really do enjoy the work I've gotten from the town I live in, but it's time to branch out and start collecting

I feel foolish for not knowing about Mike Wilson sooner. Just another reason I'm thankful for LST :)

Just got a reply back, and I'll be making the appt 2 months in advance.

This is probably a stupid question and normally I hate to bring it up, but would asking price be outta line? Either way, price isn't an issue but I'd just like to know how much to put aside for it and travels and still be respectful.

A polite "what should I bring" isn't out of line. Quality work is priceless, but living in the real world means budgeting; so once you guys get the design sort of worked out, asking for a ballpark isn't a faux pas.

Awesome man thanks. I'm definitely willing to pay whatever for quality work and the experience. I'll have to give the shop a call soon and see what happens

I am glad that this is all working out for you. I do not think that it is impolite to ask about pricing. There is a big difference between haggling with someone, and wanting to know what to expect so that you can prepare for it.

My Wilson tattoos are my favorites. He did my hand and will do my other as well as several others. Got my first from him in 96 and when I talked to him again 4 years ago he remembered. He works slow but the tattoo gets done fast. Slow down to speed up is how he described it to me. I loved reading all the praise for Mike and agree fully with all statements. I am stoked for you.

LST rocks, anyone who knows good work will stare at you when your on the beach and you can just nod. Its kinda like how all bikers have a slight head nod when they pass another or any country guy in a truck throws 2 fingers while keeping his hand on the wheel on a country road. My advice is go give a nice tip thank him kindly and drive straight home and show us pictures so we can like your shit and tell you how badass your new tattoo is.

    • Thank you for this reply it related to me alot.  Your right i rushed into the tattoo beforehand anyway. I dont even like tattoos, and really wasnt in the right state of mind but someone said get one.. 2 days later I did. The night before i got it i was drawing up designs and thinking but me and my mum never had a great relationship and my mind was frazzled so i went with text as couldnt think of design/quote or something. Was even asking people for ideas. So I agree it doesn't do justice thats probably one of the reasons I hate it. Now thinking about her hobbies hairdressing and we had a dog which was a British bulldog but wouldnt want that on my arm tbh. I too am in a tattoo rut i absolutely hate it and Like you long sleeves do look like summers choice.  Regarding laser treatment, when did you get this done? what are the results? and did you have any colour? Thanks for your reply
    • @Ciel How have you care for your other tattoos? Agree with @Howie - talk to you artist. IMO, no to antibacterial ointment AND coconut oil on a fresh tattoo with a re-wrap. Your tattoo needs to heal and breathe. Tegaderm is fantastic for this type is scenario!
    • Session number seven rolled around this Saturday. @bongsau You were definitely right, "in for a whooping" to say the least. Only made it through 2 and a half hours, but still managed to tear up an insane amount of skin. It's sessions like this that definitely teach you about your body and ability to tolerate pain. Felt pretty discouraged immediately after the session, but I'm still stoked on the level of progress. Can't wait to see the patterning brighten up as the blue settles over top. 28.5 hours here.
