Hello! New but have a question

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! 

New to the forums and looking forward to conversing with you all. I have a mix of different tattoo styles on my body but had a specific question about neo-traditional/japanese. I have been into realism since the beginning and I now have a better "trained eye" so to speak. I know what to look for and know small little red flags now. However, I know nothing about traditional/neo-trad/oriental tattoos and i'm not sure what makes a tattoo artist "great" in this style. I looked through the forums and didn't find an answer so I'm hoping someone can help educate me on what to look out for. I'm also in NYC so if anyone has any recommendations of artists around this area, it would be much appreciated!


Thank you!

In ny they have a guy named bang bang I heard he’s pretty good 

1) flash is top 3 superheroes in my book 

2) No disrespect intended but I refuse to go to bang bang due to their price. They are definitely talented though

    • Heres 3 that have tattooed me recently (ish) and are selling stuff (I've put in orders to Elharper and Swearjar- Ben is doing Vans) - UK based of course. And... Ive attached a 3 years (give or take a month) photo of one of my magpies by Mr Dunning  - just done on the right - today on the left - yes I know it's the wrong way round Actually  - while none of us is getting tattooed - how about a pic of your favourite that you have had inked  (or favourites that you have had inked) and a link to Instagram for the artist  (or artists) what do you reckon?🙂
    • My appointments with Garver and Rubendall were cancelled. Blah. That being said, I do have a cool commission happening. 🙂
    • Just get it touched up again.
