Opinions wanted on these guys for black/grey work (UK)

Recommended Posts

Hi, sorry if this is in the wrong place, I'm a newbie!

I am looking to get a black/grey phoenix on my back (with a small amount of colour)

I have had some suggestions and been to some shops to chat to some guys but being a newbie to all this (finding a decent artist! my first tattoo was an impulsive walk in years ago and it is crap) I am not sure what I am looking for!

My first choice before I started looking around was this guy:- Adam Pekr

But then someone suggested Jordan

Which one would you choose? What should I be looking for in a good tattoo?

Any advice would be gratefully received!

Looks like your search is focused in the Manchester area... How about Danny Rossiter at Rain City?

I looked at his work but it isn't the style I am after for this tattoo. (He does some awesome stuff though!)

Thanks - I shall have a read through that.

i would either go color or all black n grey.. For a phoenix definitely all color..

I should have been clearer - the phoenix is black and grey and there are other parts of the design which are colour.

If you would like a nice Phoenix I highly recommend Richard Pinch in Aberdeen this guy is a legend works with the likes of filip leu and henning, a real legend in the UK. You also have horikitsune in London this man apprenticed under horioshi III for god sake, absoloutly killing it !! And also Stuart Robson at frith St this guys killin it amazing all rounder and one hell of a guy! I mean it when I say all rounder there's not much this guys can't do at the highest level!! Makes me wana quit man!!!

Hope iv helped these artists are the best of the best and who I believe will give you the best Phoenix

Remember there's nothing wrong with travelling for a good tattoo

Hope iv helped

    • Everyone likes what they like, but true Japanese tattooing probably has had more influence on modern tattooing than anything else... American traditional a close second.  Janky kanji is not what it's about.
    • Look, tattoos are an adult thing.  Be an adult, decide what YOU think and what YOU think should be done about it and stop looking for someone to agree with you. You might not post to this site again, but you know you'll lurk and think pissy things about all of us, lol.
    • Bless your heart. I bet you'll be back when it looks even worse because no reputable tattoo artist would agree with you. You're not a very good listening, are you? Also? BYEEEEEEEEEE.
