Default Solid black coverup - can anyone recommend anyone?

Buongiorno people

Can anybody throw out any recommendations for artists who have a good portfolio of solid blackwork? Ideally in the UK or Europe so I can travel there cheaply.

I've got a big piece on my upper arm that I don't like, it's colour but not all that dark, and I'm thinking of going solid black over the top to cover it and the entire of my upper arm, filling all of the remaining space between elbow and shoulder. I'd like some sort of patterning / design on the inside and back of my arm where there wouldn't be any cover-up so somebody who's a little more artistic than just painting my whole arm solid black ideally!

I follow literally hundreds of artists on instagram and have pretty much all styles covered but when it comes to solid blackwork I've never thought too much about it before so I don't really have any ideas! Any recommendations would be much appreciated

I have started something very similar on my arm, blacked out an upper arm tribal and done a bit of geometric in the free space.

Check out geometrip sharing page for artists. Off the top of my head, Tomas Tomas works in London, really like his stuff. There are heaps of really cool geo guys in UK though, just can't think off the top of my head.
