Looking for a Long Island NY shop that does oriental style work

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a Long Island NY shop that has an artist that does oriental style work. I'm not looking for fantastic detail, just good basic tattoo work. Solid line work, color, etc.

Thanks, Rob

Thanks for all the help. If anyone has been inked by Lotus, Kings Ave or Joe Black, please PM me, I have a couple of questions regarding the shops/artists.

Thanks, Rob

Seems like you got your answer! What are your ideas for your next tattoo @Colored Guy?

I have some recent unfinished work I want another shop to complete.

kingsave .. Mike Rubendall (very long waiting list), Chris O Donnell (not as long waiting list), Matt B, Justin, ect.

If you are willing to travel to NYC then Chris Garver, RG , Kiku, from Invisible NYC.

It's basically how long you want to wait for a tattoo. Some artist you have to wait for many years to get an appointment while others just a couple month or even weeks. I wouldn't base it all on cost and detail . I usually leave it up to the artist. Most japanese tattoos have a lot of detail and to get one without too much detail could be done but..

I would save up another month , year or whatever to get a tattoo from one of the best.

Kings Ave has the most talented crew. Grez tattooed me over 10yrs.ago,and the tattoo looks like new.But those guys are usually booked up for a while,and they can pick and choose what projects they want to do.And some artists that reach a certain level don't like to finish what another artist started.It won't hurt to go to the shop to see if one of the artists is willing to finish your work,but you may have to go to a lesser known artist who isn't booked up for a long time to finish your work.

I did meet a guy in the city who had a Japanese backpiece from Joe Black,and it was nice work.

it would be completely fucked up for you to get a piece finished by someone that didn't start it. regardless of them "reaching a certain level".

if you're going to a quality tattooer and you sign on to get work from them, you have to see it through unless you're unhappy with the work for some reason. going to someone else to get a piece finished just because you don't want to wait is about as disrespectful as it gets. don't get tattooed if you're going to pull some bullshit like this. people have no respect for tattooing anymore. this isn't a situation where you buy your xbox at target and buy the games at wal mart. this type of attitude pisses me off. why get tattooed by a given artist to begin with if you're going to have someone else finish it? just go to that motherfucker in the first place.

whoever you choose to go with be sure they're who you want. book a couple appointments at once if it's large scale work and make the commitment the same way your artist makes the commitment to apply the work to your body.

I've had this happen to me more than once not because a client couldn't wait but because they didn't want to pay my very reasonable hourly rate to get the work finished. they'd get their boy down the street to "color" a piece I drew, lined and started. this type of shit will earn you a punch in the mouth if I see you in public.

I don't think what your describing is what this guy did.He did just post some old tattoos that he got redone by an artist,and maybe he wasn't happy how they turned out.I just think he's looking for a better tattooer to redo some older work he has.

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
