Oh, if only there were six stars. Or ten. Or fifty.
When I arrived in Austin four years ago I immediately began searching for a new tattoo studio. I poured over dozens of websites and portfolios, and the only artist whose work really caught my eye was Michael Norris.
After drooling over his website for several years I finally had the time, the money ,and the right mindset for a large tattoo, and so I set out without hesitation for east 11th Street. The experience has been phenomenal - the studio is gorgeous, the conversation is intelligent and comfortable, and my leg is covered with an incredible, one-of-a-kind piece of artwork. Michael is professional and personable at the same time. He sketches your piece directly onto your skin (none of that stencil routine), and his hand is firm but not heavy. He understands human anatomy and uses this knowledge to position your piece so it compliments the contours of your body. And his mastery of both color and grayscale work is unmatched in Austin, in my opinion.
If you are serious about tattoos and want something beautiful and unique, go here. You will not regret it.
Just wanted to update. Michael completed the last session of my half-sleeve this weekend, and the experience has been awesome. The final touch-up session allowed him to evaluate how I had healed (really well), assess the effectiveness of the tat, and make some last-minute tweaks to send me away pleased with a total work of art. I couldn't be happier, and when I save up some more cash I'll be back to do the other arm and start thinking of a chest piece.Review Source:
I highly recommend Michael Norris ( HUBTATTOO ) as your one and only tattoo artist. There is no one better. He is AMAZING at what he does. i was so nervous about getting my sleeve (pain wise) and Michael really knows how to calm the mind. He really makes sure that you are comfortable.
My husband comes with me every appt. and hasn't really ever wanted anymore tattoos but after watching Michael work on my arm he now wants Michael's artwork on his body as well.
There needs to be more than 5 stars to rate Michael's artwork - It is off the charts!!!
