    UPDATE!!

    Ok folks, i was here a while back asking about a shop in Vegas, well i found one. Skin Design Tattoos home of Robert Pho, former-ish apprentice Brandon Lombardi and a newly acquired apprentice. Let me start off by saying that Pho's work focuses on portraits and i can't tell you enough about his work. By far the most insane work i've seen as far as sheer attention to detail.

    check out his stuff. Walking into his shop you're left speechless with the HUGE pictures of award winning pieces he's done.

    anywho a couple of my buddies got some ink done by Pho. I on the other hand stuck with his apprentice Brandon who's color work really caught my eye.

    So moving on i wanted a custom coat of arms and hear it is

    alrighty heres the breakdown

    the flower is called Mugungwha, immortality (mugung) flower (wha), its the National Flower of South Korea. The items in the shield represent my mother and father, their zodiac signs; moms a leo and pops if cancer. Lower part represents how my dad raised me and our belief in God and lastly our last name.

    SO a custom coat of arms, roughly 6hours one sitting and 900bones later, i'm happy as hell.



    Does anyone know of a good reputable shop in Vegas?

    I'll be heading there for work and I've been wanting to start my rip piece. A custom coat of arms for my immediate family. It'll take up a good portion of my left ribs, I'd like to get bold ass colors. Mainly red and blue i guess and then good shading/line black work.

    So good freehand, on the spot sorta artist type thing. I would say money is not an issue and for the most part its not. I just don't wanna go to that Inked (or whatever) parlor thats on tv cause i know i'll be raped.


    thanks in advance
