Studio:Â Dare Devil Tattoo
Amanda Wachob blew up because of her abstract tattoos, which is about as close as you can come to having fine art painted on your body. Her really clean work is eye-catching and unique. You can also come to her for beautifully subtle bloodline tattoos, but you’ll have to wait for it: she’s booked up to five months in advance.Â

You can see her in action on TLC’sÂ NY Ink, and Ms. Massacre’s color work is definitely on-point.

Eva specializes in traditional tattoos with a little bit of a signature twist. Perfect if you want a classic piece that’s still unique. We particularly dig her awesome figurative work.

Kim Saigh specializes in being awesome. Best known for her stint atÂ LA Ink, some of her best work is her fanstastical illustrations depicting animals. The amount of detail she puts into things like snakes, wings, and even seahorses is crazy. It’s amazing how ornate a lot of her work is.

Kristen’s art ranges from Chinese-inspired cats, zombies, detailed flowers, and even dogs. Her tumblr provides a wealth of awesome work and we can’t wait to see how her career goes. We thought theseÂ Wizard of Oz tattoosÂ were especially noteworthy.

In addition to her great portrait work, Virgina Elwood is also a co-founder ofÂ Pedaler Clothing, an apparel line inspired by urban cycling. Wait, so she’s an awesome tattoo artist and totally loves bikes? Definitely wifey material

Angelique Houtkamp’s work is based in traditional tattooing but she mixes it with a variety of offbeat imagery, whether its women with parrot bodies, mythological creatures, and whatever else she can dream up. The results are tattoos that look simple but are really as unique as herself and the client.
Studio:Â High Voltage Tattoo
The iconic artist and reality TV star brought the pin-up girl back into the mainstream, and we’ve been thanking her for it ever since.
Studio:Â Private Studio in LA, wih some guest spots atÂ East Side Ink
Don’t let her looks fool you, Julie Becker is a badass tattoo artist with some of the cleanest, most diverse work out there. Being able to nail a range of styles from novelty tattoos to full sleeves, traditional, and even tribal tattoos, her art portfolio is just as enjoyable to look at as her modeling one.
