North Carolina shops/artists?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys! I have a question for the experts. I have a friend in North Carolina who wants a tattoo. It's likely just to be lines, which you'd think would be easy, but most of the shops she's sent me the links for are not strong in the linework department. :/ I have terrible knowledge of which shops are where. Any suggestions for her? It definitely needs to be extra-good because she's in IT and wants something related to circuit boards, and obviously that is not in the least bit organic. (I don't editorialize what my friends wanna get, I just try to point them at somebody who will make it look as good as possible!)

Where in NC is your friend? Off the top of my head there are some great shops,

Triangle area I'd take a look at Glenn's in Wilmington, a walk from Chapel Hill.

Charlotte has Coast to Coast, a killer shop.

Asheville has Hot Stuff.

Depends where in NC she's willing to go. I lived in Charlotte and Made To Last, 510 Expert, and Ace Custom are my favorite shops in town. I would highly recommend Made To Last, they're artists are all top notch. 

In Asheville, my favorite shop is Hot Stuff - they also have some of the best in the business.

    • 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.
