I grew up with Garrett, owner of Pirate Tattoo. Awesome artist, great shop. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

I have been going to Shaun, the owner of Electric Pencil in South Lake Tahoe. I've known him for 6 years, and I would recomend him to anyone. He has a uniqe style. His work doesn't look like anyone elses.

There's a guy in Fallon that i work with that does all my work and he's the best I've found around here. But I don't know how you feel about driving to fallon to get the work done.

It's hard to say who is the best, you should look at thier portfolio and what style of tattoo you are looking for. Some artists are better at certain things. If you are looking for the Asian stye Robert Atkinson at the Tattoo Room is well worth the drive if you don't mind the one year wait !!! There is a reason he is booked up at least one year in advance.

My wife went to Lucky 7 Sat. and got her first two tats on her wrist! Two flowers with our daughters name in them. Ill post some pics later. Cory up at Lucky 7 did the work and he does great work. Plus has a gentle hand and will talk to you about your tat. Hard to find in a tat guy. Most will just take your money and tat what you want. Good tat artisit will tell you straight up....Thats not going to look good or it will bunch up after a few years. Just something to think about.

Had two done at Pirate. Both came out well. The shop on Mill St. has some awesome art online.

Aways heard Aces charges a lot. Good work but expensive.

Jon McCan owner at Absolute Tattoo. Or anyone especially Tony Medellin at Nightmare Studios. Awesome guys and great work. They can do it all. Matter of fact Tony was the only artist to win anything at the Lady Luck convention last March.
