    not to hijack your thread but I noticed you're both in SJ. Im a bit further up the peninsula and am looking for a shop/artist to get my first tattoo at. I want a celtic brotherhood knot. [​IMG] Do you know any artists in the Bay Area that are good with that type of work?

    Thanks!

    It's not a terribly difficult style and most any reputable artist will be able to accommodate you. It all really depends on how large and in depth you want it. For instance this is a celtic influenced piece done by Adrian Lee, but it is on a large scale:

    thanks. I am just nervous about getting it and not being super happy with the workmanship. ya know. to start, i just want that knot. I would let the artist give me some ideas regarding colors/shading, etc. What artist(s) do you recommend I check out... that won't have a 4 month waiting list, or won't laugh at me for wanting something so "simple"?

    Thanks.

    If any artists laughs at you because of the tattoo you want, walk out on them right then and there (unless your tattoo is supposed to be funny, then :h5: him)

    I would look at (jesse would probably be my #1):
    Jim Miner - http://www.analogtattoo.com/
    Klem - http://www.oreillystattoo.com/
    Jesse Deering http://www.luckystarstattoo.com/artist/jesse

    Yeah exactly, if you don't feel comfortable in the shop at all, just walk out.

    A good artist is important, but so is how they treat you.

    One of the guys at All or Nothing in ATL did not laugh, but the look on his face was :eek3::ugh: when I said I wanted a sugar skull with certain attributes to it. They wanted to give me what they wanted. I said "fuck off, my money my tattoo".

    Ink and Dagger got my business.
