Its very nice , and I love photo-realism, however , people use the same photos all the time . How many versions of that Marilyn or Hepburn can you see and all done extremely well. The tattoo version of Stairway to Heaven

You're right of course, it's indisputable. I like to think of the tradition of repetition in tattooing as more like the old Blues Standards than "stairway to heaven" though - Bessie Smith did a great "ain't nobody's business" but I'd hate to be without Billie Holiday's version...

Aye trad is a bit like that , different interpretations of Traditional themes , exactly the same as blues or jazz in music , however , photorealism is pure smoke on the water. how many times can you see exactly (not an interpretation of) the same tattoo of Salvador Dali twirling his mustache or Pinhead showing off his bad dental work ...

Let's make this a thread about tattooers who haven't been tattooing for very long who you are excited about.

Here are some pictures stolen from Maud Dardeau's instagram. She tattoos at Tin Tin Tatouages in Paris and has been tattooing since 2011, and is already super impressive. I would absolutely get tattooed by her:

Awesome idea @Graeme !!

There's a young guy on Instagram that I follow who goes by the moniker: Akuma Shugi which I think is a cosplay tag or nickname. Anyways, he's putting out some really fun tattoos. Appears to have started 2010-2011 but I can't find solid info. I believe he tattoos out of the UK.

Then there's Anna Day from Australia. Lots of black and grey line and dot work. Looks like she started 2008?

And also Tamara Lee. Mike Rubendall picked her out as a rising star in tattooing. She does great dotwork. Started 2010
