Anybody have any recommendations for artists in the north jersey area? Specifically artists who excel at/specialize in traditional tattoos?

there are good shops in northern jersey - I've been to Immortal in Clinton - got tattooed by Jamie Sawyer twice - shes great - and there are many great artists at the shops two locations in northern NJ

but...if we are talking traditional tattoos - you still have many options - I obviously love Electric Tattoo and have been tattooed many times there by Rob Ryan and Sheila Marcello - they're both awesome - all the artists there crush traditional daily - the shop is in Asbury Park which is in Central Jersey - btw - it doesnt hurt to have the beergarten right next door

i'd also throw neptune tattoo in the mix - which is just a coupe miles away in Neptune NJ - Chris Smith would be my choice there but again - amazing shop amazing artist - they crush traditional

in you are in NJ dont forget that you have great artists in NY and Philly who do amazing traditional

In Brooklyn Smith Street is as good as it gets in my opinion for traditional and in Philly Olde City is top notch

At a convention in Toronto a few years back I was Tattooed by Steve Boltz from Smith St. Tattoo Parlour, Brooklyn, the shop is about 2 hours away(ish) from North Jersey but well worth the drive.

Great guy and I love the Tattoo, his work is consistently awesome. He did a free hand marker drawn coverup coffin theme on my chest.

    • Hello! I am about to have my hand tatooed and would like to have it go on "top" on my current sleeve. I was thinking past the red flames that you see. I am wondering if it means my new tattoos needs to be solid black to go on top for it to cover up? Because I wouldn't want the flames to stick out of nowhere or have the lines from the bricks show up in the new one. It's my first time getting a tattoo on top of another one, so I just want to make sure! Thanks so much for your time!   Pictures
    • I got this one last week from Lukas Speich at XXX Tattoo in Lucerne, Switzerland. I stole the idea from a story that Yoni Zilber retold from Bill Salmon, in a Podcast... there was a dude who saw someone's tattoo and said, "That's a pretty cool tattoo. I got a tattoo also, but mine's a little cooler." He showed the tattoo and there it was... a little cooler. 😉😉  I chose the classic Igloo Playmate, but the wording was too small to tattoo. So, I asked Lukas to add a little Swiss flag and he went with a red cross. It's kinda funny to me, as it now looks like it could be used to transport an organ donation.
    • Yeah, it's crazy! Hope that you are healing better, too. My knee is crazy jacked up. I am sure that I will need a touch up eventually!
