For traditional stuff id check out Steven Wrigley, Roddy McLean and Stu Hepcat In Glasgow. Richard Pinch in Aberdeen and Russel at Spacey's Bizarre Ink in Edinburgh.

For the new fashioned stuff Billy Hay is your man in Glasgow. In Edinburgh you've got Morag Sangster.

and rightly so. i'm no expert in the Japanese style and i know he's not a traditional Japanese artist but personally i'd be going to Billy.

Like a few people on here I have work by Billy and I can't fault him, would recommend him in a heartbeat.
He did my right arm (with the kitsune) if you take a look at the photo album on my profile.

For more traditional styled stuff I'd recommend Steven Wrigley and Roddy McLean but for modern stuff then Billy Hay without a shadow of a doubt.

This is my arm by Roddy McLean, (apologies for posting this again to those that have already seen it). He's doing my other arm just now too.
