    i know i havent posted here in a while, but with this thread im going to get straight up elitist and probably make fun of you if you say something like de hardy.

    my list:

    horiyoshi III
    spider webb
    dan higgs
    greg irons

    i know some of you have probably seen horiyoshi IIIs work. im still working on my very large horiyoshi influenced piece. my favorite thing about him is that when you look at his work from a few feet away, its almost flawless, but when you get close up, you can spot blown out and crooked lines.

    spider webb is simply amazing. id consider him one of the best tattoers of his time. he even had his own cult following. people would literally follow him around from day to day.

    dan higgs needs no introduction. so simple and clean. i wish i could get him to tattoo me. i have a piece he did on my leg which i let a friend of mine do as his first tattoo. our friend carson came in and immediately spouted off "i know daniel, and daniel would absolutely love that!". if you can find it, pick up his book THE DOOMSDAY BONNET.

    I had a feeling you might put Lance in here.


    My tastes are pretty random. I'm a huge fan of Albe Rock, Craig Driscoll, Nick Baxter, Dave Fox, Chad Chesko, Jeff Beckman, Nate Diaz, most of the Devotion Tattoo (FL) crew, Mark Jeffreys

    Are there any artists with Craig Driscoll's style (the cartoonish colors and amazing line/borders) that doesn't have a 2 year wait to get work done?

    Anybody ever hear of Watson Atkinson? I'm not in the tattoo scene so i don't know his reputation but back when I was entertaining the idea of getting a tattoo done, he was the artist i was planning on going to.
