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 there. First of all I think you have a very nice tattoo. I can very much relate to the feelings you're going through as my mind went crazy when I had my back piece done a little more than a year ago. I was obsessed with it. It felt like it wasn't part of my body and I wanted it gone. It took some time to get used to it and to accept it as part of me. My tattoo wasn't just an impulse decision, yet it felt like something too big, too dark, too weird on my body, I felt like i let down my family and kids and that I'm a freak. Well, now, quite some time later I can tell you I got used to it and I like my tattoo very very much and I'm back to being me, the strong, confident me.  Give it time. If you feel weird right now it's ok. You'll be better! Don't be hard on yourself and keep living your normal life :-).
    • Alright thanks, I was just told it was going to be lower than 1600 euros total, we're more looking at 3 000 ish but hey i'm very happy with the results so far so cant complain 
    • Unless it's very painful and has a bad odor, I wouldn't worry about it. I don't see anything that indicates any kind of problem.

      Maybe this is naive or just hopeful, but I want to start an artist signature line of T-shirts,  designed by Tattoo Artists, I know this is not a new concept, but the niche will be that they are not shop T-shirts and not Sullen big productions from the larger companies (which are awesome). I would like to see simple clean designs, limited colors on Black shirts, made locally, of limited runs of 100 -300 shirts only, so that it actually matters that you have one of a limited supply (value added). Also limited run designs will mean that the art is constantly changing with fresh designs by the artists. There is a real opportunity for the Tattoo Scene to support local makers of things, like t-shirt makers and printers etc, instead of having things mass produced in China. Help your cousin Jim, you know what I mean. North America used to be a world producer, now we are consumer extraordinaires. This also gives a creative venue for tattooers who make awesome art which not so Tattoo-able sometimes, which can generate income for a rainy day fund when they are not tattooing (yes that happens). 
      Here are 5 designs which I am considering for Black T-shirts (hence the black back-drop). 
       
      What is your feedback? Why one or the other? If there is consensus, this thing can pop out in the real world and you are a part of it. How often do you get that opportunity?
