Recommendation for an artist for Japanese back piece in DC or surrounding area

Recommended Posts

I would like to get a recommendation for an artist to do a Japanese back piece in the DC and surrounding area. I looked on the forum and viewed the profiles of some of the recommended shops in this area, but didn't really find anyone that thrilled me. I found someone I like, Josh Egnew at Three Kings, but would prefer not to have to drive all the way to New York. However, my prime concern is getting a good piece of work, so I'm somewhat flexible about how far I go.

Brian Bruno is in Richmond VA, not super close, but closer than NYC?

Brian would be my first choice just on talent alone.

I've been tattooed by both Dana Helmuth (18 hrs.) and Brian Bruno (7 hrs.), among others. When I go back to get some more ink they are really at the top of my list. Hmm, tricky call. They were both super professional with me and hard working (fast) guys even though they were both really light handed.

I really like Tony Morrell's work too, but he's expensive. Someone mentioned RedLetter1, but they're nowhere close to DC.

    • @Dan Yeah, knee was ouchy. I am not looking forward to getting it colored in next year! Mike said that it would take 2-3 hours to finish it which I can do but suck factor was a solid 3 on a scale of 5 (3 means it really hurts but not tap out territory!)   @SStu Thanks! I am such a Kings Ave fan it is ridiculous. #fangirl
