    Gear-head Tattoo parlor?

    Hey all-

    I have a terrible old tattoo that I got when I was 18, it is just not me!

    I figure if I have it, I should cover it up with something car related- maybe rat-fink or something cool.

    Anyway, I am not having much luck finding a shop that has a portfolio of car related tats. I would like to find an artist that is a fellow car person and can help me design something nice.

    Any tips are appreciated!!

    Aces tattoo on Virginia street. Rob Roy. He (any artist really) will need/want to see the existing tattoo first, location and size, and then discuss new tattoo image and size. He takes two appointments a day, 1pm and 5pm, everyday but Thursday. If you go in around those times he might consult you then and there. If you don't catch him, you'll need to leave a deposit and go from there. Dude has done a lot of amazing cover ups. It really depends on what you have to cover and what you're willing to do to cover it.

    Go talk to Nico at Absolute. He's into cars and motorcycles. He recently bought my FJ80. I don't know much about tattooing, so cover-ups may require a specialty type artist. If nothing else, he could recommend a car-loving cover-up artist.
