yep, like the ones posted already, I would go to any of those places no problem. My cousin lives in your area and has quite a few high quality tattoo's by some of those already mentioned, and travels from K-town to Vernon now for ink work. I could get the name if you like, I trust cous's judgement as he is quite picky/particular as to where he goes.

I wouldn't go there, but I know of a few that have gone there and turned out aight, just my 2 pennies[cheers]

Hey no matter where you go , jsut be sure to look at thier portfoliio and check out the quality of the line work make sure it is nice and solid not all scratchy unless the design calls for it, Look at pics of healed tattos if they go tthem, Look for solid coloring and smooth shading .. try to ask around in the shops as to who prefers to do your style of tattooing.... Most vetran tattoo artist's shouldnt have a problem telling you If they liek your design or not, Just be sure the person you are going to Is On the same page as you are.. My 2 cents

And obviously the typical sterilzation stuff too...[cheers] [cheers] [cheers]

I got my first one there
i think they charged too much, and the work wasn't that great

not a place i'd recommend
my 2nd was done by michelle @ fat city (in New West) she did a killer job - i went back last year to see her & she doesn't work there no more :(

Pudge
01-25-2007, 02:24 PM
most of mine were done at Fat City when Vinnie & Kerry were there, not sure who's there now. Wish Vinnie had another shop, and Kerry was still alive, both my personal favorites.

yah i found that liquid sliver over charged me cause mine wasnt that big and i was dinged over 200$ when it was done and it didnt even take 20min. good job though!

crimsen
01-25-2007, 06:37 PM
the price i am not worried about. as long as it is exceptionally well done, i have no problems.

i have known a few people to go to screaming eagle here in winfield and it seems like a nice place. just being small its hard to base a reputation. the one i have wanted will be a full back one, and no way do i want any risks with it. there are also a couple small ones i would like, which i may get done there tho.

01-26-2007, 07:48 PM
jess i wuld go into talk to cary at screamin eagle wicked work awesome guy to deal with, with it being a small one man operation there isnt much of a big rep in the area. alot of my buddys have gone to primal in the past, there are a couple good guys there but the rwst really suck ass and they dont have friendly staff( a few of them are/look like fuckin crackheads) i ont ever go there.. since getting my work done at s.e. i have had several of my friend decide to go there for future work. if ya wanna take a look at mine give me a call 864 6269er

Dan at Primal did my 2. He is doing a full sleeve on jesselee. everything looks real good so far.

I think I might try screamin eagle for the next one though. Sometimes the small shops can be nice, more attention to detail and customer service.

Praying Mantis Tattoo....it's in Williams Lake but Brian is freaking awesome. Great guy, great work, a true artist, he does a lot of art work (paintings) and airbrushing on just about anything also. It's a long way to travel but you would be happy with his work guaranteed. (250) 392-6311.

On the other end of the spectrum...Rocky's in Kamloops is shit.

go down to primal and talk to dan.... hes doing all my brothers sleeve (jesslee) so far it looks great, he just got a new angler fish
http://intelligence.jrc.cec.eu.int/marine/fish/impast/angler%20fish.jpg
great highlights and clean lines, hes done his other 2 as well, a capricorn and a squid, looks great, vibrant colors and are all still looking good!

I've had most of mine done by Frank at SUPREME Tattoo's in Chilliwack..

He does great work, but his new "dizzle" sucks and shouldn't be doin customers ... I let him do my Steelers tat and it came out crappy..

Can't book with frank anymore, rockstar attitude and no time anymore..

Gonna be lookin for a new artist, probably gonna try Fat city, heard alot of great things..

I don't like to talk shit about other peoples work however I know a couple of people that have had work done there and after what I've seen I would NEVER recommend that place. Shit work at best.

Waited three months to get in with Rob Hope at the dutchman...Totally worth the wait....

bcwheeler
02-22-2007, 07:30 PM
hmmmm I say nothing... no I say some thing ... My two cents ...
A waiting list means Fuck all.. If you sit ther every day and you watch these people tattoo for 6-8 hours a day for the 6 months they say they are booked for , than cool Other wise I call bullshit.. Kare Flatmo one of the best artist going right now ,, maybe 4 weeks to get in with .. Tom renshaw 3 months MAX.. Deano Cook same.. Mike Parsons Same.. Guru tatoo Same weeks at best.. Take ur blinders off , Its easy to make the public and non industry savey people think you are the shit by saying you are booked for 6 months.. Not all of them do but ,, Most are full of shit .They just want to keep working 3 days a week, Its a great job we have ,,,lol . Im booked at least a month out , but I can make time for anyone.I do about 4-5 full sleeves a week . But I can just as well say I am booked for 6 months.. as for poeple formentioned on this thread ,, seen some good work from Todd guy could be cleaner.. Wes I can not say I would recommend unless you are getting black and grey skulls.. Liquid havent seen enough to judge.. Dutchman has some killer artists Rob Hope one of the top artist around.. The Dutchman himself , a little out dated.. Great none the less .. David shoore , Kirt wiscomb.. Craig driscoll if you can find him .. ( in the states at Guru for a while not sure if hes returning) in Wash.. There is Arron Cain Fukin Retarted good.. If you guys want some links pm me..

oh and before anyone gets thier panties in a wad..Everyone else can opinionize so can I .. yes thast right ... lol Tattoos are the same as any art " In The eye of the beholder" So if you like what you see or get who gives a Flyin Fuck !!!! [cheers] [cheers] [cheers] [cheers]
