I'm wanting to get my first tattoo and the only thing stopping me is finding a studio/artist that I can trust to take my tattoo virginity. It's going to be a dragon on the front of my thigh incorporating a skull and some different flowers. What I want requires lots of detail, color and I want the closest to perfect I can get. I am also looking at studios in Santa Fe as well :) Thanks so much for the help! If anyone wants to add a photo of their tattoo from a shop they really recommend feel free to do so!

Eric Christo Martinez is a great tattoo artist. Maybe you can message him to see where he is these days!
Just curious, did you ever get your tattoo and if so, where did you go?
I ended up going to Heart and Soul on Central across from UNM, recommended by my brother. My artist is Frankie Montoya.
