Top 100 Tattoo Artists (USA) – Part Five

 

So, we’ve come to the final part of this series and the final 20 people to make the list of the Top 100 Tattoo Artists (USA). Were you shocked by some of my inclusions? Were you surprised that one of your favourite American artists didn’t make the cut?

This is just the beginning – I plan on following the same format to celebrate the best tattoo artists from Australia, NZ, Canada and the rest of Europe. Be sure to follow me on social media (all my links are in the sidebar) to be notified when more tattoo content is published here on staciemayer.com

Keep scrolling to view today’s featured artists, then go back and look over part one, part two, part three, and part four.
