Between her tattoos & her mural work, Heather McLean (also known as H-Bomb) is an artist all Tattoo Snobs should take note 0f. She hails from great frozen north of Canada, folks.  Based at Strange World Tattoo in Calgary, Alberta her work speaks louder than any introduction I can come up with. The photo below might have that handled, too.

Featured Artist: Amy Duncan

When I first came across Amy Duncan, it was quite by accident. A very happy accident, I must say. Tattooing for only six years out of Australia (please, someone keep me from making a “land down under” reference), this young lady is definitely worth keeping an eye on until she’s traveling to whatever nation you call home.

Featured Artist: Ryan Mason

Based out of Portland, Ryan Mason is surely an artist not to missed by anyone capable of finding themselves in his neck of the woods. The response he has received online to his unique style of tattooing is astonishing, much like his practice of booking no more than two months out. With less than 10 years in the industry under his belt, his level of skill can only be attributed to natural talent, despite his frequent protests that he’s “not an artist”.

Featured Artist: Timmy B

At the Richmond Tattoo Show last year (2009), I was told to check out a portfolio from a guy by the name of Timmy B. He wasn’t at his booth, but I looked through photos of his work –I was impressed, to say the least. As he approached the booth, I was shocked to see someone under the age of forty standing before me. At only twenty-three years old, Timmy has become the talk of the east coast over the past few years. This could be credited to his relentless travel schedule, but I think with work like his it was just a matter of time before his name was on the tip of everyone’s tongue.

Featured Artist: Stina Sardinha

Stina Sardinha may not be a name you’re well acquainted with, but it should be. Given how long she’s been tattooing, it?s quite surprising that she doesn’t have one preferred “style” when it comes to tattooing. With talent a decade in the making, it’s no wonder this rising star has started to attract some well-deserved attention from the tattooing world.

We’re not going to beat around the bush. You’ve seen Jim Sylvia’s work on our site before, and you already what a talented artist he is. We recently sat down and spoke to Jim about art school, travel, tattoos, and his ’54 Chevy Bel Air.
