rays life shows how much of a low life he is !!! He lives on main street his babys mother just got out of jail for a ton of shoplifting charges , this other girl he was with rianna got felony charges for drunk driving with her child in the car after spending the day with him and she did some time and still didnt get her kid back yet !!! he is doing pierceings and people keep getting infections and almost everyperson he does work on goes to doctor dan to get their work fixed!!! if you catch him at a bar he is usually alsleep at the bar or he pisses his paints too!!! he don't own a car or anything of substance so you tell me DR. DAN OWNS HOUSES, CARS , BOATS AND MANY OTHER THINGS THAT YOU ACCURE WHEN YOU ARE A GREAT ARTIST !!! BY THE WAY DR DAN DOES NOT HAVE TO SIT IN A SHOP AND WAIT FOR COUSTOMERS TO COME IN THEY LOOK FOR THE GREAT ONE AND WILL CALL AND MAKE AN APPOITMENT !!! REMEMBER THIS WHO WOULD LET A GUY WHO FALLS ALSLEEP ON BARS AND PISSS HIS PAINTS TATTOO THEM !!! YOU DON'T SEE DR DAN PISSING HIS PAINTS OR SLEEPING ON BARS EITHER !!! ALSO LADYS WATCH OUT RAYS A REAL PIG WHY DO YOU THINK THERE IS A BED IN THAT SHOP !!!! HE LOVES TO COP A FEEL A TOUCH OR A QUICKIE FROM ANY GIRL THAT WILL ALLOW !!! KATE ELLLIS I WONDER WHAT YOUR IN FOR !!! A LITTLE CRACK OR SOME PILLS OR ?????? GOOD LUCK AND WATCH OUT FOR MERCER !!!!!

Dr Dan has been doing tattoos for almost 20 years he is the best in town he doesnt have to call himself an award winning artist because his work shows it. As for opther artist in town that call themselves award winning artist like ray ruthford
dr. dan might have the awards but ray has them but from his work(hes a joke) how can a man put a tattoo in a show that was done on his back and call it his work. if he tattoo his back he got some god gifted talent he should not be in herkimer.

The award that Ray got for best back piece was on his own back. I don't think he can tattoo his own back. No one can. The award was for someone else's work. As for the best tattoo artist in the valley is Jen King in Frankfort. She is the best when it comes to tats. I know Ray, Dan and Jen. If I had to chose between all 3, I am going to Jen. She is clean and the best. Period. No one can compare to her. As for Ray, he works in a shop owned by a pediphile. Not where I want to spend my time. As for Dr Dan, he beats women and does drugs. Yeah, I want someone all effed up on drugs to tat me. Thats why she left him for the "handy-man" they had working at the shop. As for Jen, the only bad thing I can say, is that it takes 4 to 5 months to get a tat by her because her waiting list is so long. And I don't find that to be a bad thing. I think that speaks very highly about her work.

RAY RUTHFORD gave me and my mother infections back in April, I actually just posted a forum about this... I'm still dealing with it and whether you like him or not, from personal experience, I would never come within 5 feet of him every again!

If Ray isn't a crackhead, then where did all his teeth go? As far as Kate Ellis catching something from him, she has a few gifts to share with him too lol. They are both d-i-r-t-y nasty things. The tat he was showing off at the expo was not his own work, and he does not own his business, he works for someone else, a child molester at that.Real good role models for his kid and Kate's, where the hell is CPS?

i have a tattoo from Dr. Dan's and it is nice. it is not the best work out there, but you get what you pay for. I also have some work done by his apprentice Rob and that work is very good! as far as Ray goes, i do not have any ink done by him but i wouldn't consider it either. Why is he in the shop where the sex offender is?? makes me think twice about walking that side of the road

inkz inc is total shit. they don't know anything about their so called "expertise". I went in one day looking to get something done, and they had no idea what things were called. i asked for a certain sized taper for my ear, and he unsanitary told me to try it. It wasn't packaged or anything, I told him I'd pass. Also, someone from the college got their tongue pierced and it was ridiculously swollen, and pussing. gross. people should check out sacred right down main st, passed santuccis. i dont remember the womans name, but she was cool.

dr dan's sucks.. he goes out of the lines and DONT EVEN ask for stars around your tattoo because everyone gets the same type of stars... hes un-orriginal and sloppy.

Every tattoo artist is different. They all have their own styles and ways of tattooing. One should do their research and look at tattoos an artist has done. Then make a decision on where to go. Every one of the tattooist mentioned on here has had good things said about them and has had bad things. They are only human and can't please everyone. Besides that everyone has people who don't like them in general everyday life so they are gonna go around and bash them. As I said do you research before you sit in someones chair. A tattoo is for life.

Best in upstate NY is DREW in Gloversville. But long waiting list and you'll pay top price, but it's for top work.

List of awards and magazine articles about Drew are long. People come from all over for his work.

Here's Drew's Facebook. Check this stuff out, you won't find this quality in the Herkimer area.

don't go to Tattoos By Mark in Little Falls. He sucks. Put a tat on a girl I know, Angel sitting on a crescent moon, and put the damn feet on backwards! Looks horrible! Ryan Andrilla in Little Falls does really good work. I wouldn't go to Dr. Dan for anything. Another friend went to him and her tit tat is almost as big as her boob. Supposed to be a medium size butterfly, but just looks stupid because he did it so big. He was rude, obnoxious, and had a horrible attitude all the way around. I got a couple tats from Connie, all have since had to be redone due to fading. I don't know Drew, but Dave Black has a lot of fans, and so does a lady named Miss Vicky out Johnstown way. Look them up. Don't go to Dr. Dangerous.
