So you want me to add Jesse Wark to the recommendations under Japanese - Non Traditional? I'm not feeling it personally but he's pretty popular here...

fusion ink is a brand of the ink they use. Theres many different brands, but fusion is the best among most of them. Their colours are vibrant and true. Their black is very black and does not fade to blue.

Strictly tattoo is very very very traditional. And I didn't know they make their own needles not many artist does that nowadays. As for ink I find the work i have done with intenze ink ages the best. But most big name ink nowadays reacts mostly the same

yah very traditional. Intenze ink is very good as well. Their True Black Ink is definately one of the best. Eternal used to be very reputable until one of their chemist started to make their own ink called "Fusion Ink".

^yea most artist here can do it just that there wouldn't be any special flair to it. Chicano lettering isn't very popular in canada, in the states and mexico there are tattoo artist that specialize just in chicano scripts.

Quick question, does anyone know if Aveeno Active Naturals Skin Moisturizing Lotion (Fragrance Free) is suitable to use on a fresh tattoo?
I'm not sure if it's oil based or not

for any sort of lettering work go see my man Jesse Strong at Steveston Tattoo. The guy is a former graffiti artist who loves doing lettering work. He kills it.

getting two pieces done in the next couple months, a back piece and chest panel. i already left a deposit with jesse @ blackwater and am thinking of going to see cohen floch @ tattoo union for the other piece. both pieces would be non-traditional japanese black and grey work.

who would ideally be better suited for the back piece? i was thinking jesse but just wanted some input to be sure.

Well depends on the art too? I'm not a fan of jesse's dragons but everything else is top notch, but for a big piece like that, I will go to jesse regardless
