What’s better than art that stays with you wherever you go?

Tattoos have been around for thousands upon thousands of years—since around 8000 B.C.! To pay tribute to an ancient art form that is still widely loved today, we talked with a handful of Lynchburg’s tattoo artists to hear what they have to say about their favorite tattoo styles and why you should consider one or more of those styles for your next (or first!) tattoo.

Artist: Jonathan Schultz
STUDIO: Caspian Tattoo
Favorite Style: Neo-traditional
What Jonathan has to say about this style: “I prefer Neo-Traditional designs because they are bright and bold with high contrast. They age well and are fun to look at. If you can tell what it is from across the room, then you can tell what it is for the rest of your life.”

Artist: Andrew Montgomery
STUDIO: Caspian Tattoo
What Andrew has to say about tattooing: “Tattooing is a unique art form that allows an individual to be marked for a lifetime. Choosing one style from an artform that’s as ancient as humanity is difficult.
