Good Tattoo Shops in the Lower Mainland?

I'm looking to get some work done (first timer) but have heard of and even seen way too many shitty examples..
Where are the good shops/good artists?

These places definitely look promising.. I went by Fat City and a few others to look through some portfolios and honestly wasn't all that impressed.. I'm being picky but I imagine that's a good thing with something so permanent lol.

SkinnyPup have you been to any of these personally?

I've been recommended to this place by a few different people.
I do believe they do Japanese style tattoo's too.

Why is that? I saw some of their work and it looked good.
And quite a few people have recommended them to me when I asked.

Even if they do those work, it won't be any where near the level of filip leu or shige.

No but looking at their portfolios you can tell that they are really good at traditional japanese.

On top of having near flawless technique, they are all fully aware of the 'rules' that must be followed, so you don't end up with a wannabe jap piece that has all these fuckups that knowledgeable people would see (if that matters to you)

There is a long ass thread in this section dedicated to tattoos, I would suggest you start looking there. Lots of pictures so you will be able to see what artist appeals to you.

Nothing wrong with Monkey King. My artist moved to that shop midway through my piece and they were all nice guys, the place was clean and sanitary and the display work was quite good.
