I am looking to get a portrait tattoo on my arm from a movie. Does anyone know or have any recommendations of good tattoo artists/shops that do good, high detailed portrait work?
Thanks!

charlotta @ tattoo charlie's did a portrait for me that came out really well. out of all my work, it probably receives the most compliments. she did a portrait of edie sedgwick for me, based on a still from an andy warhol film. the detail is great. features that are difficult for some artists to handle (placement of eyes, etc.), she handled masterfully.

i'd check her out for a consultation. she's excellent about listening to your ideas and working to explain what she can do, what will work best dermographically, etc.

I was going to say no one in this town but then I was reminded of Charlotta. I personally don't have any of her work but have seen tons. She's one heck of an artist

go to sterling and ask for Rhanoda Shelley. She does the best portraits around. Bring a pic of what you want done and she'll do it right. Check out her work on Facebook.

If you're talking about the guy out of Ohio ( owner of Reed Em An Weep) then I'll have to agree. I'd also go as far a putting a 1K (For you non money ppl that's $1,000,000 and not $1,000) offer to anyone that could beat TIM REED (the owner of Reed Em An Weep). This offer is only extended to artists in Lexington. Doesn't include ppl like Paul Booth; not that TIM couldn't wip his ass. I'm challenging the average priced tattoo artists.

Joe King at studio ink, hes one hell of an artist. Find him on facebook and look at the backpiece he did for the movie The Shawshank Redemption, its insane.

So the tattoo was in the movie or it was a representation of the movie?
