Once you have something specific in mind for your custom tattoo, finding the right tattoo artist is crucial
to getting exactly what you want. Once you have an idea of where you want to go, the next step is to pick your tattoo artist. Come into Pistol Pete's and spend some time looking at our tattoo artists' portfolios. A portfolio is different than the pictures (called flash) hanging on the walls. A portfolio is an actual book of photographs that a tattoo artist takes of tattoos that they have done.
A tattoo artist's portfolio is a reflection of what they feel is thier best work and reflects the range of their talents, or showcases their particular expertise. If you're especially drawn to a particular portfolio, the next question to ask yourself is whether or not the tattoo artist is skilled in the style of tattoo you want.
There are many different styles of tattoos, from photorealism, tribal, black and gray fineline, to graffiti style, new school, color bomb, traditional ect. and every tattoo artist has a specialty.
There are many people that bought a tattoo machine and now call themselves tattoo artists but how
many ACTUALLY create original works from your mind? How do you find them? How do you contact them? How do you get their best work?
Be specific. It is best to find a Great Custom Artist, tell them what you want, where you want it and
about how much you want to spend. At Pistol Pete's Tattoo Shop we take pride in each customer we
have, and we always set aside the time to meet & discuss there design ideas. Because of the permanent
nature of tattoos, you may not feel that picking a tattoo out of a book or off the wall of a tattoo shop
is right for you, we agree! At Pistol Pete's we do not do any "Flash" tattoo's, all of our tattoo designs
are custom, designed & drawn for each client individually.
