I choose Knox Tattoo ...

Chuck uses only new needles, very clean and sterile and I think his work is exceptional, have had 2 from him... And have sat on the bench and chatted...

He has my endorsement...

He always asks to touch up his work after its healed and worn in a bit... and has never asked a dime .. he always says he wants his work to look like it is suppose to...

The Nibble Here made me laugh. Because I have a sun around my Nipple. But I need an ex girlfriends initials covered up so i may cover them up with my last name so we'll see. Best advice, don't get a persons name tattood on you...

He added to a tat I already had so I would see no reason he would not fix up a tat how every you want, as long as you understand he can't preform Magic... Just drop in and look around at his samples and check out his shop, Just ask him anything you like and he will I have no doubt show you his set up and his hygienic methods and sample of his work... He will tell you exactly what he can and cannot do for you.. and how much it will cost...

Do your research! Goggle tattoo parlors and / or artist in Kentucky and check out their shop and work online. If they don't have a website, pass on them.
I did this not long ago, took a couple of hours to browse through a lot of the shops with artist and samples of their work online. Do not go into a tattoo parlor or an artist by blind "recommendation". If you are wanting quality and a lot of detail, trust me when you google some shops in Kentucky and compare the work, you will pass on the local shops around the Barbourville / Corbin / London area.

I have 4 done by Chuck, 3 by Dale (In the Skin), one done by Erik Mills at Chucks ex wifes shop in somerset, and also one done in London at that small shop close to Wal Mart. Erik Mills personally done the best tattoo for me out all of them. If your looking for color check him out on Facebook and see what shop he is working with, he honestly is amazing. As far as Chuck and Dale, Chuck did my first tat plus added several things free of charge. None of them are faded and it's been years since he did them, I think he did a great job and he's good with his prices. Dale also does a really good job, his style is different but I have no complaints. I think it's a win win situation. Ive had several rats done out of state, including one done by Ami from NY Ink and though some of them are better than the ones done in Ky, I paid 5x more for them. So like I said, if your looking to get a tat, chuck and/or sale are really good, Chuck is also great at covering, Dale will even tell you that. Good luck.

Well i guess it would look bad if your pansy ass didnt keep running from the needle. Ive never seen any work done by Chuck that looks bad. Ive got a Koi half sleeve done by him and it is looking better every time i go back for another session. He cuts great deals on big pieces and never demanded that i stay to finish the entire thing in one setting. Id get some done, wait a couple weeks then come back for another setting. Ive heard horror stories of people getting tattoos that would have look awesome had they taken proper care of the tattoo and/or not ran from the gun when being tattooed. So if it does look bad then its obviously your own fault for being to stupid to take care of your tattoo, or from being a big pussy and running from the gun. As for other artists, ive been to some other shops. I wont name which ones but some of them had some awesome portfolios while others had jailhouse tattoo written all over their stuff. My advice. Go to Chuck. He's been in the same spot in Barbourville for like 15 years or more. THAT tells you right there that he is a good artist. If he sucked then he would have closed down shop a long time ago.
