There is often some trepidation when going to a new artist and a new shop. I waked in to G&B with an open mind and a simple idea. My tattoos are always left to the interpretation of the artist because I have no artistic skills whatsoever. I told Ben I wanted a tattoo based off a few lines of an E.E. Cummings poem to commemorate a friend who passed away.
He was very diplomatic in pairing down my ideas to something that was actually doable. I came back a week and a half later to an amazing design with touches I hadn’t even considered with a definite old school flair.
Ben has great chair-side manner and even made some last minute changes that improved the piece even further. He’s heavy-handed but did a really good job in helping me honor my friend Heather.
“and this is the wonder that is keeping the stars apart. i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)”
Ben did an amazing job on my first tattoo. He took the time to plan every detail even better then I could imagined and it looked so much better then I had hoped. The next tattoo will most definitely be done by Ben. Thanks Man!
Ben did an amazing job on my first tattoo. I sent in a picture but I wanted a larger version of it. I was so nervous it would get distorted, but Ben had an amazing sketch ready for me with some amazing added detail! I was nervous this being my first tattoo but he completely calmed me down! He did an amazing job and is a really cool guy!
