In search of a photorealistic tattoo artist

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was searching for a photorealistic tattoo artist that was within a 4 hour drive from my house in hopes that if multiple trips were needed to complete the piece I could give more money to the artist than for travel expenses. I was looking to get a really high quality piece of art on my arm. I wanted to get a black and grey tattoo to add on to a memorial tattoo I have with bear tracks. I wanted a baby bear and mother bear walking towards a cave with a male bear standing by the cave. Behind the cave I wanted a skyline of black trees with blue ink fading up into the sky. I'm in Rochester, NY and I'd be willing to travel to Canada/Pennsylvania for this piece too. Thanks in advance for your help!

download "The Brag Art List" on iTunes or Google Store to your mobile device to see all the top notch artists in your area. and no, this isn't spam. the app was created by tattoo enthusiasts for enthusiasts.

played around with the app for a bit but needs a lot more artists added. Cool idea though.

That low Canadian dollar is killing me right now. We are headed to LA next week, and the exchange rate is debilitating.

Yeah, I'm glad that when I was travelling to New York to get tattooed that the dollar was more or less even. I couldn't have done it at the current exchange rate. It's brutal.

Tom renshaw, doing realistic black and gray animal/nature has been his thing for longer than most folks have been tattooing. He's in Michigan, which is a little over 5 hours from Rochester.

Shane o'neill, middletown DE. 6 hour drive from you. I am on my third trip and it's not a bad ride down. Long wait though. Black and grey photo is his thing.

Jesse Rix in Keene NH does great wildlife also.

    • 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.
