There are many styles of tattoos available these days. It is always recommended that when considering permanent art work on your body to first see if the tattoo parlor you choose to do business with has the right artist for your tattoo. The tattoo artist portfolio will give you an idea of the style of art work the artist feels confident in doing.
Tattoo artists are like fingerprints. No two are the same. You probably wouldn’t want a portrait artist doing a traditional full color back piece. On the other hand, you also would not want the traditional ship and anchor guy doing your grandma’s portrait. Some artists are very versatile and can do many different styles. Most artists have a style they prefer to focus on and that will show in the tattoo artist portfolios.
If you are looking for a very small tattoo, it may not be so important to shop around for the best tattoo artist in your community. You just want to find the right person for the job. Small tattoos are important too! Actually some of the small tattoos are difficult to perfect. One really needs to find an artist that does super clean work. One tiny mistake shows up more on a little tattoo than it will on a large piece.
One can’t express how important it is to study tattoo artist portfolios. Our studio has seven artists available for that tattoo you’ve been thinking about.
