oh okay, I think I’m gonna hold off and wait for Russ Abbott (in hopes of getting an appointment). I think his style should be able to mesh with what I have, with the use of some color too.

I’ve done my best to look at all of the portfolios of the various artists attending the Portland tattoo expo. Do any other names besides Russ Abbott stick out to you as well-known talented artists?

No, definitely not. Sorry I can’t help with any names out west.

You said not all great artists are great at cover-ups, is there any way to know if they don’t have a portfolio dedicated to cover ups (seems like many don’t)?

I am currently talking with http://www.joshuabowers.com/, any idea if he’d do a cover up well? My other candidate is Russ Abbott, but I haven’t heard back from him yet.

No, but I would expect that any of the world class artists that have been mentioned would be upfront about their ability/inability to cover a particular piece. They want you to be happy and they want their reputation to remain intact.

FYI Russ is being very selective about the work he will do right now, but it doesn’t hurt to ask.

Oh okay sounds good, that’s logical. Yeah I notices that on his blog..so I’ll just wait and see when he gets back to me. I just hate waiting to hear back, meanwhile forfeiting a spot with another potential artist ( if he takes too long to reply) thanks for the input, real helpful!
