A few times a week I get asked where I got my tattoo. I only have one tattoo, but when people see it or find out I have it they always want to know where I got it. About 5 years ago, I started doing research about good shops in NYC and ultimately took a trip in to meet with the guys at Invisible NYC. I went in with an idea and a design, but when I saw the work of Regino Gonzalez, I set up my appointment and went back to the drawing board to design something along with his guidance. 5 years later, when people ask, I always say if you go to a place in NYC, go to Invisible.
Its important to find an artist that does the type of work you are looking for. I originally went to try and get work done by Troy Denning, but when I spoke to the shop manager, we agreed that Regino was the guy for the job. The lines are still crisp, the detail is still there and color is still dark.
