Default BnG Portrait

Can't make my mind up who to email! Large palm size on ribs, Input please...

I have work by Dan Hancock and Paul Naylor already, both superb artists and a pleasure to be tattooed by as they are nice guys, easy to talk to and I have nothing but good stuff to say. Also both up north which helps.

Only thing is I like the idea of tattooed by different people and getting different pieces of others. I'm weighing up rock solid guaranteed good tattoo with top guys v a bit of a risk with someone I don't know.

So....

Thomas Pollard
Leigh Oldcorn
Oddboy
Gari Henderson
Jordan Croke

I really can't decide so would appreciate feedback on waiting times, cost, how they heal etc.

Cheers.

All great choices we are a bit spoilt when it comes to B&G portrait work in the UK...

Haven't seen much of Jordan Crookes B&G Portrait work, more Tim Crookes style... And don't remember seeing too many Oddboy B&G portraits, more colour artist again... I've seen Gari Hendersons work fresh & healed when Paul Vander-Johnson used to work at same shop as Gari and his work looked great.

I'd add to your list

Rob Richardson
Phatt German
Sonny Mitchell
Emma Kierzek
Craig Cardwell
Kelvin Slack
Dris Donnelly
Justin Burnout
Nigel Kurt

It's so hard to choose who I think...

From your list I'd be tempted to email Thomas Pollard

Another new one to me and I agree. Love an artist who isn't afraid to put healed work side by side with fresh.

Thomas Pollard it is. Waiting list and cost are reasonable. Hopefully get booked in for early next year soon.
