    Pistol needs another tattoo artist.

    Discussion started by Pistol - Apr 28, 2004

    okay, it's been about 6-8 years since my last tattoo. since then the shop I used to go to has closed down then reopened with a new name and new people. and it's time for me to finally get some more work done.
    i'd like to get my sleeve done up finally. but now i'm stuck with no artist. i'm looking for a fineline black and grey artist in the so cal area. i want someone raw that can hook up some evil ass skulls, clowns, and shit. kinda like jailhouse tatts but with artistic style. sorta like Cartoon but without the 1000$ minimum session.

    Anywho... Pistol, try Trevor Marshall. He's hopefully still in LA. Check the portfolio, the man has skill.

    ^giant usually will have a long waiting list but he would be perfect for pistols tat. i know he was working on one of my friends tats.....

    wait scratch that.

    he wasnt working on my friends tats.

    you know who you should also look up, but you might have to take a trip up here is grimey. he does a lot of the stuff that you are asking for. he was working on on of my friends tats for free i think (okay i think it might be either grimey or giant for this tat), but he was working on the side of my friend for a tat. it started on his left side under the armpits down to the hip bone and its an amazing tattoo. i think it was a perception of hell. one part was i think men eating women or something like that.

    both of them do beautiful work.
