It’s no secret that Nashville is home to a thriving music scene, but if it’s tattoos that are music to your ears, Form.ink has you covered.
Like the other lists we’ve compiled, this one is wholly subjective (and full of totally inspiring ink).
Chad Koeplinger – Adventure Tattoo
Chad’s tattoos are vivid and often incorporate bright colors that make his designs come alive. This Nashville artist has been tattooing for two decades!
Heather Cherish – Lotus Tattoo
Just take a look at that clean lettering. Need I say more?
Even Heather’s tattoo studio is amazing – we love the wall art collage featuring Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam and a taxidermy spider.
Marty McEwen – Black 13 Tattoo
This tattoo is giving me serious Bates Motel vibes. That neon pink is glowing.
Ryan Stockton – Pride & Glory Tattoo Parlor
Located right in the heart of downtown Nashville, Ryan’s detailed designs are artful, fun, and sometimes even a little bit cheesy.
Louie Lopez – ArtWerks
Louie has it all… expert shading, attention to detail, and above all, happy clients.
Evan Davis – Private Studio
Stick and poke fans rejoice. Evan is a professional tattoo artist whose stunning pieces don’t scream D.I.Y.
Nathan Fisher – Black 13 Tattoo
If you’re anything like the tattoo-aficionados at Form.ink, you love watercolor tattoos. For wonderful watercolor tats in Nashville, look no further than Nathan.
Kirk George – Black 13 Tattoo
Kirk is our third(!) artist from Black 13 Tattoo to be featured in our top-10 list.
It’s obvious that the Black 13 team has plenty of talent. Just check out the Frida Kahlo tattoo below.
P.S. We’re loving that unibrow, are you?
Chipper Harbin – Safe House Tattoo
In his Instagram bio, Chipper describes himself as a storyteller. We couldn’t think of a better phrase to describe this Nashville artist’s eloquent work.
Visual storytelling at its very best.
Shannon Wages – Sage and Serpent Tattoo
Shannon is the talented artist behind the up-and-coming tattoo shop Sage and Serpent.
She’s got a rich portfolio, but we knew this Hunter S. Thompson/Ralph Steadman inspired piece was destined to top off our list.
