Why “The Best Tattoo Artist” Doesn’t Exist at Skins and Needles

At Skins and Needles, we often receive the question, “Who is your best tattoo artist?” While it’s natural to seek out the best, we believe that the concept of a singular “best” tattoo artist is subjective and limiting. In this blog, we aim to celebrate the individuality and unique talents of our artists, highlighting how their specialisation in different styles contributes to the diverse and vibrant tattoo community.

Embracing Individual Styles:

At Skins and Needles, we take pride in the fact that our tattoo artists possess their own distinct styles and specialties. Each artist has honed their craft, developing a unique artistic voice that sets them apart. Whether it’s traditional, realism, watercolour, blackwork, or any other style, our artists excel in their chosen areas, bringing their own creativity and expertise to every tattoo they create.

Artistic Subjectivity:

Tattoo art, like any form of art, is subjective. What one person finds visually appealing, another may not. Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder, and the same applies to tattoos. Our artists understand this and embrace the diversity of tastes and preferences among our clients. They work closely with each client to understand their vision, ensuring that the final design aligns with their individual aesthetic sensibilities.

Matching Artists to Clients:

Rather than focusing on a single “best” tattoo artist, we prioritise finding the right artist for each client. Our team takes the time to understand the client’s desired style, theme, and personal preferences. By carefully matching artists with clients, we ensure that the tattooing experience is tailored to meet their specific needs and expectations. This approach allows us to celebrate the talents of all our artists and provide clients with the best possible outcome.

Encouraging Exploration and Appreciation:

At Skins and Needles, we encourage clients to explore the diverse range of artistic styles offered by our talented team. We believe that appreciating and understanding different tattoo styles can lead to a deeper appreciation for the art form as a whole. Our artists are always willing to share their knowledge and insights, helping clients discover new styles and expand their artistic horizons.


“The best tattoo artist” is a subjective notion that doesn’t truly capture the essence of the tattooing experience at Skins and Needles. We celebrate the individuality and unique talents of our artists, recognising that their specialisation in different styles contributes to the vibrant tapestry of the tattoo community. By embracing diverse artistic styles and matching artists to clients based on their preferences, we ensure that every tattoo created is a masterpiece in its own right.
