Looking for an artist in Dallas or Texas


Recommended Posts

Yeah go to either Rock of Ages or Elm Street. Katja Ramirez recently moved to Rock of Ages and she does fantastic work along with the aforementioned Tony Hundahl. Also Steve Byrne. That guy's work is killer. But I hear getting a tattoo with Oliver Peck is quite the fun experience.

That can do a badass panther head. I really dig this one and if anyone has any idea of who did it or anyone who could do a large scale panther head justice let me know. Thanks :)


i think Steve Bryne did a cat head that was similar to this a few months ago check that out. Tony seems to kill every animal head he does

Currently trying to find an alternative method of getting down to Austin. My truck has over 200 thousand miles on it so I'm hoping I can find a train. Rock of ages is most likely where I will end up.

If by "train" you mean "Greyhound," then you are in luck.

I now have an appointment with Scott at Arsenal Tattoo in Bryan, Texas next month for an 8 hour back session. I was looking for someone who could do some solid dark black work and they were recommended. kind of nervous about an 8 hour session though. Never sat for more than an hour.

You should be fine, maybe check through the good client behaviour post just so your prepared, things like food and plenty on water, will make it a more relaxing experience for you,

    • 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...
