Default Looking For A Tattoo Artist

Howdy Guys,
I Dont Get Here To The Pub Very Often But, Anyhow.

I'm Looking For A Really Good Tattoo Artist To Do My Little Girls Foot Prints. We Lost Her Last December And This Will Mean Very Much To Me To Find The Best Around.

They Are Tiny So Detail Is Important. Litterally About 2 Inches

Thanks In Advance Guys.
Take Care,
Matt

Lisa Strange at Acid works in Mt Morris.

She is great for detail work..... All of mine have been done by her besides my first two and she makes my first two tattoos look like amature work.

I will warn you
there are others there that do good work as well but I would not let them touch me with ink.
She is the best there and as far as my opinion the best I have seen.

I strongly advise you to go talk to her and have her show you some of her work. There are pictures of the work she did on me in her books also.

VERY DETAILED
you wouldnt be disapointed at all

Body Armor in Kzoo is one of the best, talk to Jack. also Matt Hessler at XS in Rochester, Josh or Ed at Royal Oak Tattoo.

Stay away from Inkslingers, American Pride, Rainbow.

Rule of thumb also is that most places where tats and piercings are done by the same person or 1 also does the other, best to stay away. not always, but most of the time

x2 we have had work done there and she did my last tat. She is really great and understanding---listens to what you want and why and will do her best to show you what may look better if she thinks she can improve on your print. My husband knows the owner, Al, really well--they will take good care of you.


Oh, and most importantly---I am very sorry about your loss. Today is my son's 5th birthday and babies are truly a gift. I bet your daughter was absolutely beautiful and I have no doubt that her little toes absolutely love tickling the clouds as she floats above them.

X2 the only 2 tattoos I've got were done by Mat Hessler at XS. He does a GREAT job with detail tattoos. Here is the link to the site so you can check his portfolio:

I go to Fat Brothers Productions in Highland. They're hot rod guys. Mark does my tattoos, but his brother John is awesome, too. Mark just finished covering up some awful work I got done at Rare Breed in Grawn, MI by some neo-nazi piece of shit. Not that getting SICK GIRL in old english scrolled across my shoulders was the greatest idea in the first place...
