Default New to the UK - help me find good artists?

Hi guys.

Recently moved to the UK from America.

Hoping you guys can help me find some good artists based on who I list here that I favor.

Are there any artists in the UK that are similar to

Mike Adams (@mikeadamstattoo on instagram)
Arianna Fusini (@ariannafusini on instagram)

I was going to book in Mike Adams to do all of my tattoos as I like the traditional heavy black dotwork style that he does and it's very unique but obviously i'm halfway across the world now.

I do like Philip Yarnells style, but last time I called up he was completely booked all year.

I guess my tastes are obvious which is traditional that incorporates a good amount of black. Woodcut traditional tattoos are neat-o aswell.

Hopefully you guys can provide some help!

Paul Davies at artium ink in kingsbridge. On instagram @paulokink
He does blackwork and dotwork. All depends where abouts in the UK you are really? As someone else suggested. Try the brag art list to search in your area.

Pretty much everyone at Rain City in Manchester would be your cup of tea.

Gre Hale - https://instagram.com/grehale/

Matt Cooley - https://instagram.com/cooleytattooer/

Dan Morris - https://instagram.com/danmorristattoo/

I've left out Danny Rossiter because he's a Japanese specialist and not sure if that's your thing.
