Cory James is an AMAZING Tattoo artist!!! I’ve been seeing him for over a year now, and he has made my idea come to life!!! Cory has always been very receptive to any amount of pain I’ve been feeling, and makes sure I’m ok after every break we take! I would recommend him to anyone looking for gray scale and detailed work... Thanks Cory for taking such good care of me, I’m looking forward to the end result!!!
Amazing artist. Drive from Houston to Austin to have him do my tattoo and will happily do it again if/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 him more.
He does amazing work! I can’t wait to go back for my next tattoo.
When I first moved to Austin I googled best black and white tattoo artist in Austin. Sure enough you can probably guess who came up, if you cannot guess then have the person reading this to you give it a shot. Anyhow I took some screen shots of tattoos I had liked, one image specifically was exactly the style I had wanted. Cory took time to review the pictures and asked when I would like to get started. I asked when he had finished drawing something up to let me know and I would take a look then setup a time. I was soon told that this was not the way he worked and that he was more of a freehand artist, I couldn’t be more happy with Cory’s design. His pieces are obviously one of a kind as he does not duplicate anyone else’s images but creates his own as he goes. I have had multiple sessions with Cory and still have a few to go before it is completed. His work is worth every dollar and more, I try to schedule after each session for his next available time as he is obviously popular and for good reason! Keep up the great work Cory and see you soon!
Cory performed my first tattoo for my sleeve. His private studio is very clean and inviting. The assistant I was in contact with before meeting Cory was helpful and responsive.He's super down to earth and gave me just what I was looking for. Can't wait to make my way down to Austin again to add to my piece.
