Baltimore tattoo convention April 21. Best way to see the work of a hundred tattoo artists and find a shop that will do exactly what you want.

Biker tattoos? You mean American traditional? The more simple line tattoos have become very popular over the past few years. Most artists can do simple line work. Here's a hipster shop that'll know what you want.

Good question for the owners. I know their social media has plenty.

Check out Have Fun Be Lucky, Lovestruck, Stay Humble, Dark Arts Tattoo Studio...but I mean lots of places/artists can do fine line simple tattoos like the ones at the shop you referenced.

Came to say these places, look them up on insta and search all their artists to find the style you’re looking for.

Vouching for the other comment that recommended the Baltimore Tattoo Convention. Great way to network with local artists (as well as regional and national ones) and find an artist that can do the style you're looking for.

Baltimore/Maryland has a lot of very talented tattoo artist. You just have to know what style you are looking for.

The tattoo convention is a start, I have found some artists through this forum or just Google searching and looking at portfolios.

I second fruit camp! Many amazing artists there and I’ve always had wonderful experiences getting tattooed there

Get on IG and search through hashtags like #Baltimoretattoo or #bmoretattoo

Dozens of local artists can work outside their usual style and many in specialize what youre asking for

You can always go into shops are look at portfolios and ask about their work.

Chapterhouse for sure, there are also some really talented artists in Bel Air but they can be hard to get in with.

The two absolute best tattoo artists in MD are on Facebook. Look for Justin Holcombe in the northeast corner of MD, or Ashley Cooksey in southern MD.

Justin Holcombe might be the best portrait artist in the US. Possibly the world and he's relatively cheap and easy to work with but works only limitedly now. I'll attempt to post links... Remove the extra dots ...
