    Those are amazing!!! Here i thought the guys on Miami Ink were the best :noplease:
    I want a tat, but some of those are pretty...out there.
    I mean those are some scary/strange things to get permanently inked on you.
    I always wonder how they would look in their 70s...

    Those are fantastic! I don't why you'd go for dome of them but some of the back pieces are epic.

    Really great art there, especially those guitarist portraits. A lot of that stuff isn't really my thing but I'll recognize talent when I see it.

    One of my favourite artists is Shigenori Iwasaki who owns Yellow Blaze studio in Japan.

    You can check out his work here YELLOW BLAZE TATTOO STUDIO | SHIGE | TATTOO GALLERY | COMPLETE

    He's done some of the best japanese work I've ever seen but he does a lot of full back pieces and body suits that I figured might not be safe for work so I won't post any here. Definitely check out the site though.

    Those tattoos look like they took quite a few hours to do!

    some great tattoo and art work! The thing about tats is, the tattoo can only look as good as what the person wants and has come up with. I am looking forward to having my leg piece done because the ships will have more detail, and the lighthouse will be pretty sweet as well. The detail won't be as in-your-face as these ones, but it'll be tehre.

    If i decide to get my shoulder piece, it's going to have ridiculous detail as well! Now I'm kind of jonesing for it lol, but i dunno. I personally don't want the skulls/evil looking stuff just because I know i won't be such a fan when im older. It looks wicked on other people, so I let them get it :lol:. It's hard to come up with an idea that's got its own badass-ness to it, that doesn't look evil lol.

    Tim Kern's work is fuckin incredible.

    Also, check out Vincent at Tattoo Mania in Montreal. His rates are fairly expensive, but I can't endorse this guy's work enough.
    I'm going in to see the drawing today, starting to work on my sleeve with him on Friday. I'll be sure to post some pictures, but it'll probably take about 4 months to complete/

    Definitely, his portfolio at the shop is far more extensive, he's got a massive binder there, full of his work. Some of it is absolutely epic. My appointment's been pushed back to May 1st, but I got the drawing yesterday, and I gotta say I'm excited as hell to get it done. Pictures shall ensue.

    sweet! i look forward to your thread!

    I know what you mean about the binders - Hanger 18 really needs to update their website. Dave knows he has to update his portion (he does my tats), since he's done way better work then what's shown online.
