Art that adorns the flesh…

Adam Sky

May 13th, 2009 by

If you aren’t familiar with the tattoo work of Adam Sky, you should be.  Adam’s been ruling the tattoo scene in Vancouver, Canada for many years now and it certainly doesn’t look like things will be changing anytime soon.  Though he started his career as a punk-rock, LSD-sucking-scratcher, he quickly evolved into what is arguably the most respected (and sought after) tattoo artist currently working the Vancouver scene.

In January 2008 he set up temporary shop in Hollywood at Kat Von D’s High Voltage Tattoo, aka LA Ink, and since returning home to Vancouver, he’s opened up a private tattoo studio in Vancouver’s Gastown district.  He also opened and managed the wicked Sacred Heart Tattoo in downtown Vancouver (where I personally had my first-ever tattoo done).

One look at Adam’s online gallery gives proof to the statement that this guy’s stuff is, for lack of better words: Fucking Spot On.

Though Sky’s time is not easy to come by, if you have the patience to wait for an opening, you won’t be disappointed with the final outcome.  If you’re really anxious too see Adam in action, you can somewhat satisfy that craving by checking out the live tattoo camera, which is set up in his studio.  From the comfort of your computer, you can watch as he goes to work on clients.  A pretty nifty idea, that tattoo camera.

So if you’re making a list of tattoo artists that you’d like to contribute to your body art, you might want to consider adding Adam Sky.  I know, I know…your list of newly discovered rad tattoo artists just keeps getting longer everyday, doesn’t it?

Sounds good to me.
