7/12/19 EDIT: I've been back for a second piece, which lasted 2 days. Cory took the reference illustration and made corrections to the anatomy. He really spent a lot of time making sure placement was correct. It's a large piece, and the details are amazing. I'm so glad I went to him for this tattoo. He's incredibly talented, professional, and a perfectionist to boot.--------------- 1 year agoCory is incredibly talented and took on a sleeve continuation when nobody else wanted to. He exceeded my expectations and my tattoo has incredible flow. I love it. Also, the aftercare salve he uses during the tattoo (and what you take home to use afterwards) speeds up healing to a degree that the tattoo peeled very minimally. I look forward to going back to him in the future. Great artist, and a badass boxer to boot.

Corey is hell of an artist and truly has a style all his own , the skin breaks are styled perfectly, lines are crisp and shading between light and dark values are flawless. Great artistic vision and composition for bigger projects . I went in with a pretty rough idea and decided to give Him the freedom and glad that i did. The studio is very personalised to the art being done and clean as can be, can't wait to go back . CheersUpdated review, i have now been back a second time to lost edge tattoo for a 2 day session, cory has finally completed the outside of my sleeve and i can't tell you how many times i get stopped and asked who did the work on my arm, absolutely amazing, at this point i can't imagine not booking another appointment after the end of every session, cory is a professional, an artist and a absolute surgeon with a machine . Till next time🤘

Tatoo design by an absolutely talented artist. Cory helps design your vision, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed. I am so happy with my tattoo, and was impressed with the professionalism and atmosphere of the studio. I highly recommend Lost Edge Tattoo - best in Austin.

Most talented tattoo artist I have ever met. Could not be happier with the work done. After one session I booked three more!

Cory was very professional, passionate about his work and a true artist. I will definitely be seeing him again soon for another tattoo. If you want a real work of art done by a knowledgeable and creative artist then Cory is your guy.

The experience I have had with Cory has been nothing but exceptional! I’ve been to Cory for three sessions, and each session has been an incredible experience. His work is extremely skilled, and his attention to detail and heart for perfection is felt and shown until the session ends. It’s an honor to be a client of a true, studied artist. Not only am I a client of Cory’s, but I now consider him a friend. Thanks Cory for sharing your talents and time with me! See you in May!

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!!!

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.

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!
