So many people come to Cardinal Tattoo to get black and grey portraits that sometime our proficiency in color realism goes overlooked. Will Wood has long been regarded as one of the better realism tattoo artists in the area, and by area, we mean Middle Tennessee. His black and grey work has won awards across the country and as the photo above can attest, his color work's not too bad either. The only problem is, his portrait work tends to overshadow his color realism because people simply don't know what he can do. In the photo of these two roses, the bottom rose is healed and about a month old and the top rose and blue background are freshly done. If you or someone you know are interested in color photorealism, stop by Cardinal Tattoo on the historic square in Gallatin and speak with Will. He's expressed interest in balancing out the color-to-black and grey ratio of his recent work. You may be able to get a deal!
