Valerie Vargas and More Guest Artists Coming to Kings Ave Tattoo

Posted by Jennifer DeSantis on Mon, Apr 16, 2012 @ 01:00 PM

It has been such a great couple of weeks working with Valerie Vargas. What an absolute pleasure it was to have her with us at Kings Avenue Tattoo. She and Stewart are such talented and friendly people. The tattoo community is lucky to have them and we are fortunate to have worked with both. We are going to be so sorry to see her leave. It was an honor to watch her kill it day after day, she is a true talent, with the body of work to prove it.

This Madussa tattoo was the first piece Valerie did on her guest spot with us at Kings Avenue Tattooing N.Y.C. That is what you call hitting the ground running. It just set a tone for the great days to follow.

And with a piece like this, no one is complaining.
