I'm not sure if I missed it if someone already recommended Tony Hundahl and Steve Byrne at Rock of Ages in Austin Texas. Two stand up guys that will really open your eyes with their tattoos.

Hey everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew of a good artist on the island of Kyushu, Japan? Can't hit the main island until I take leave and the only guy I've found who is pretty good in my opinion is Horishow from Amitabha Tattoo in Fukuoka AMITABHA TATTOO HORISHOW, 'preciate it. For my recommendations, I've gotten work from Steve Byrne down at Rock of Ages in Austin ROCK OF AGES TATTOO - AUSTIN, TEXAS and Rob Benavides over at Flying Panther in San Diego Flying Panther*Tattoo & Gallery - 2323 Broadway Ste. 101 San Diego, CA 92102 (619) 238-5713

Dark Horse Tattoo, Unbreakable Tattoo, and Gold Rush Tattoo all put out some good work in the greater LA area. I'd definitely like to be tattooed by Bryan Burk at Dark Horse.

Jesse Tseronis in Winchester, VA is really good. I love his Japanese work. He's a great guy, real easy to work with. Jesse Tseronis | Facebook. He's currently doing a sleeve for me.

+1 ! I got some work from Jesse too! Solid tattooer -- any style, but especially Neo-Japanese.

I already asked this once but i might as well try agian as its been awhile, any suggestions for Salt Lake City, UT? I went to Oni Tattoo last time and liked it, just wondering if there was any other good ones to check out? I've tried searching and cant find anything special, just dozens of iffy shops. Thanks either way!

Tom-

Tim Hendricks was recently asked to recommend two Irish tattoo shops on Twitter, and I'd probably agree with his responses (if we exclude Belfast shops, at least).

In Dublin 'Classic Ink' on Crow St. is probably the best bet for traditional stuff. The guys in there paint a lot of their own flash- worth having a look at. I haven't been tattooed by the guys in there, but Oliver Peck did a guest spot in there recently and I ended up dropping in for that - it was a cool shop.

Outside Dublin if you are prepared to get on the train or drive down to Limerick you've got Ross Nagle in 'Allstar Tattoo'. He has been knocking it out of the park lately, super bright and distinct traditional style stuff. Gets a lot of guest artists, he's had Chad Koeplinger, Tim Pausinger, Grant Cobb etc in the past.

I know I have only gotten a few but if your in central Iowa check out Urbandale's Big Foot Tattoo's. My absolute favorite place to go and Carrie Black does a wonderful job. Other friends all have gone to her and we would all agree.

Also Skin Kitchen in Des Moines is pretty descent.

    • Hi everyone my name is Ben. It wont let me post this question to the AFter Care section. So I'm posting it to the only place it will let me post it, the initiation thread. I just have an aftercare question and would REALLY appreciate some insights from the experts on this forum. So here goes ...   Ok, so let me start by saying, I am incredibly sorry that I did this. I did not mean to spread my germs to others. I got a tattoo exactly one week ago and it was mostly done healing (a few small scabs and peeling). So, my artist didn't tell me not to go swimming. I guess she just thought I knew. SO I went swimming laps at the YMCA indoor public pool. After I got out, a guy saw my new tattoo and mentioned to me that I shouldn't be swimming with that cos it could cause infection. So, I googled it. And found a lot of horrifying stuff. I also had a small open scab that I had accidentally scratched the night before. I immediately went home and washed everything with antibacterial soap. I put H2Ocean on the tattoo and Bacitracin on the open scab. So now I'm wondering, am I like, totally screwed? I'm all worried about flesh eating bacteria and infection. The open scab is still really itchy, but doesn't look infected at all. Any advice on how to handle this, other than NEVER doing this again would be greatly appreciated. Again, I am very apologetic for spreading my germs. The thought never occured to me to not do this and now that I know, I NEVER will do anything like this again. Thanks! 
    • eh, not much more that a week or so. it's an open wound, and the new layer of skin needs to grow over it.
    • Hello, I got my first tattoo of my recently deceased pet two weeks ago and was wondering how long the ink staining the surface of my skin will stick for? I've gently washed the tattoo with un-fragranced soap twice a day and it seems to be coming off very slowly and ever so slightly. it's not that visible with flash but it's basically little bits of ink stuck in the surface crevices/lines of my skin. Thanks! edit: i typed two weeks ago instead of two days ago oops
