Realistic, Portrait, and Surreal Tattoos in Black, Grey, and White
Black, grey, and white tattoos are more than a personal style choice. They reflect a stoic mindset that embraces darkness, shadow, and light. This aesthetic can speak to all walks of life. My style blends realistic, surreallist, and portrait tattoos for a result that’s uncanny, beautiful, memorable, and hopefully meaningful.
Are you looking for a portrait tattoo artist to recreate a picture perfect photo on your skin? Want to add to unique visual themes for a one-of-a-kind design to match your concept? Or do you have a totally unique concept you think would look good in my style? Hit me up.
I’ll ensure you leave my shop with art you love that will stand the test of time. Tell me your idea, show me some inspiration, or point out some of my work you like as a basis for your subject. I will take that idea and turn it into a new tattoo using modern techniques, enthusiam, and care for your result.
I have ten years of experience in the tattoo business and thousands of hours tattooing. My portfolio spans photorealism, surrealism, geometric, and dotwork tattoos from throughout my career.

What My Clients Say
“Cory took the ideas I came with and fleshed them out into the perfect beginning of a half sleeve. I could not rave enough about the level of detail and precision in my new piece.”
“Extremely happy with the sleeve Cory did for me. I get compliments left and right. Best tattoo experience I have ever had.”
“Will happily do it again when I decide to get another tattoo. His work truly speaks for itself. Also he plays great music, isn’t overly chatty, and balances break times well. Could not recommend more.”
“I can’t say enough good things about Cory’s work. He did all of my tattoos. That raven with the womans face? Yeah, I wear that proudly every day. It’s been a pleasure to see and then wear the amazingly creative designs he comes up.”
My private studio Lost Edge is in north central Austin. Come get tattooed in a comfortable, private space where the focus is solely on you and your art.

Lost Edge symbolizes blurring the lines between tattooing and fine art, between client vision and artist expertise.
