I agree with Kat, no doubt. But it's next to impossible to get her specifically to do a tat for you. I've looked into it and heard she gets around 2000.00 per hour for work. Plus flying out to Cali....nah. A little out of my price range.

Trying to stay in the La/Tex/Miss region.

Portrait Tattoos-no matter how "good" they are, are a BAD IDEA

CAP as good as it gets

Seriously, regarded as one of the best portrait guys in the industry. He has probably been doing portraits longer than you have been alive. He is a well kept secret....and probably no more than $200 an hour.

Link didn't work for me but I Googled him and checked out his work....very impressive. He's definitely an option to look into.

Seems like I heard of a shop in New Orleans that did killer portraits but don't recall a name.


Edit: Found one called Eye Candy in N.O. This guy named Randy Muller has some killer work. Check out the last portrait on page 2.

I know a really amazing portrait artist, but he does not do tattoos. My advice would be to get a real nice portrait done, and spare the tattoo.

Thx for the advice but a tattoo is easier to carry around than a portrait on canvas.

Yep, I was just about to post about Randy. Definitely checkout his work. B

TW, Eye Candy is on Magazine St in the Lower Garden District (near corner of Richard St).

Bobby Pitre in Larose is the best I have seen for this area. People Magazine did an article on him in last months issue.
