The search continues for an artist but word of mouth is leading us to a shop in Hendersonville-there are so many tattoo shops here in Asheville that it is a bit overwhelming. My rough guess is that we have locally at least 10. Some good some great and some pretty bad. It's hard to know what to do. I really don't want to just go in to a place and say here do this, without knowing anything about the artist.
I could of course fly up and stay with Nej and Mot and visit the artist that did Mot's gorgeous tattoos but surprise surprise a guy who credits Dick Warsocki as a major inspiration is the dude in Hendersonville with his own shop now. Small world huh?
A little more research is in order and a visit or two to a few shops/artists and then this tattoo is a go.
What do you think?
