Hello there! Be careful - there are hundreds of sub-par shops up here. Then again, coming from the SF Bay Area I'm a little spoiled.

I would recommend the aforementioned Derek Noble at Luck Devil (which is about to be renamed Dark Age or Dark Ages), he did my neck which you can see in my gallery.

Also everyone at Fist Full Of Metal up on 85th & Phinney are wonderful people and accomplished tattooers.

If you like the no frills classic look of traditional work, the folks at Liberty (just moved to Queen Anne) are all top notch.

There's Slave to the Needle that a few of my friends swear by, but I personally have no opinion of one way or the other.

If you're interested in black work there's a cat over at True Love in Capitol Hill named Thomas Sinnamond who does fantastic black work from what I've seen.

Aaron Bell is at Slave to the Needle, I think, and his tattoos are great.

Hey has anyone heard good/bad/anything about Sunken Ship Tattoo in Everett??

my wife and i walked in there a few years back and she didn't like the vibe. they have a vintage clothing shop on one side and a tattoo shop on the other.

there's plenty of great shops on the area... this might help: http://www.lastsparrowtattoo.com/forum/general-tattoo-discussion/3532-shops-pacific-northwest.html

    • Hey everybody, new tattoo enthusiast here looking for a place to chat, post pics and compare and get feedback on potential ideas for new pieces etc. Churs Hmm are you only allowed one post daily or something? After this first post its not allowing me to create any new posts at all rn?
    • Hey, thanks for your input!    Here's how it's doing now. About 4 weeks now. Definetly not as bad as I thought it would, but not great either. I'll be waiting to get it fixed later in the year. Good thing is it still looks pretty good even if its pretty shit 😂 live and learn!    This guy has done a couple full arm blackouts too so I really dunno what's up.    It's hard to find someone who has much experience doing this type of work where I live.    Have connected with another artist who has also done it and has decent healed pics, and am waiting on her advice too.  Also, for fixing it, do you have to go over the whole thing again, or just the dodgy spots?    How does using different black inks affect it?    Guy wants to touch up in a month or two but yea I don't think my skin will be ready by then lol dya have an instagram I can follow? 🙂
    • just got a message by a friend who send me these thread... I'm a blackwork tattooer...and to be honest it's one of the most difficult technic, cause you have to pack it super solid in large areas, with different "soft/thick" skin...so it's not wondering I'm mostly repairing blackouts... problems like yours can arise for various reasons... could be a voltage/handspeed issue at this area(overworked/traumatized) or he had a "dirty" needle (plasma and vaseline get stuck together with pigment and fills the space between the needles) could also happen it was accidentally touched with dirty hands by a friend/animalnose, got sticked at sleeping(you can't remember)... and i could make the list way longer... WE WON'T FIND OUT ANYMORE... but in the end the crust will switch to scars... sadly there will be no way around... keep it clean and let it heal... If it does not get better in the next few days, you can get cortisone ointment from the pharmacy.   BUT! THE GOOD THING! it can be reworked once the healing is over and the scars are settled down... so you should give it minimum half a year but as i said -IT CAN BE REPAIRED!! For the next time you should consult an artist who is into blackouts    sadly can't post images, so i can't show you how your scars will be looking and how it is looks after reworking a blackout...     So here we go... the first picture will be show how a healed overworked blackout looks like...   second/third was around 3 month after reworking by me...
