Tattoo artist with 25 years experience proficient in all styles of tattoo from cartoon to traditional, new school to realistic to trash polka etc., etc. I absolutely love what I do and I was always an artist before picking up a machine. Make sure your artist can draw make them prove it. Don't be fooled by a picture if you didn't see the "artist" draw it. Chances are if he can't draw he can't tattoo well either. Good luck!
