Getting Inked? These 12 Tattoo Artists Will Create A Masterpiece
If you're someone who considers tattoos to be a serious business (they are!) and need someone meticulous and trustworthy to ink your skin permanently, then Prashant of Shaman Ink is the guy for the job. Doing justice to his entity name, he approaches tattoos (and jittery tattoo-getters) with a sense of calm and reassurance.. and is generally very shaman-like. No, he won't perform ayahuasca on you (if you're looking for that, you're on the wrong part of the internet) but getting a tattoo from him will be an experience you'll cherish!
He's got his finger on the pulse of the newest skills when it comes to his craft, and takes the entire process, from designing the tattoo to its healing, very seriously. If your tattoo idea flirts with realism, micro-realism, or even covering up a regrettable one from the past, you're in luck because that's his specialty. Seriously, check out some of the cover-ups he's done on his Instagram, they're wild!
