Who do you think deserves some recognition?

Recommended Posts

Iggy Vans, Idle Hand Tattoo in SF. I know of one person on LST that has something from him, but I don't here about him much. Very no frills, solid traditional work.





Tattooing professionally in the San Francisco Bay Area since 1994, Iggy Vans began his career at Erno Szabady's now-legendary studio on Fillmore St., in the Lower Haight, as well as at Erno's sister shop on Front St. in Santa Cruz. He has also tattooed at Everlasting (on McAllister St.), Freddy Corbin's Tattoo 13 in Oakland, Lyle Tuttle's on Columbus Ave. & at the original Picture Machine on Geary Blvd. & 4th Ave.

After all those years moving around, Iggy is very proud to be back in the Lower Haight, as a senior artist on the staff at Idle Hand, since January 2005.

I feel like A lot of people I talk to don't know Brian Bruno, he's my favorite current tattooer. He did a half sleeve on me from wrist to elbow and it came out perfect.


Brian's tattoos are great. I am also a big fan of Mike Rennie's tattoos. He is another guy that you don't hear about a lot, but puts out great work.

i'm really loving the James Tex work noted at the beginning of the thread, and Brian Bruno's stuff noted above.
