Cory is a consummate professional. I found him on Instagram after trying to find the best possible tattoo artist for my first tattoo. My tattoo was pretty complex and he took a solid 5 hours drawing it out with me to get it right. Then we crushed 6 plus hours tattooing it and it came out flawless. If you look at his Instagram, it is the one that is a big clock on an inner arm. AHe was more expensive than many of the tattoo artists I found, but was so much better it was unreal. Worth every single penny and more! If you are looking for a budget artist, I would go elsewhere, but you will get what you pay for. If you want something incredible, Cory is the guy!On top of that, he was enjoyable to chat with and I could not have asked for a better experience for my first tattoo. When I get another tattoo, I will 100% be using Cory!

Cory went above and beyond to make my experience worthwhile. I can’t wait to go back and get everything finished!

Cory did my inside forearm few years ago then came back to finish it to a whole sleeve. My experience for both was great! Very nice guy! He will explain everything to you from placement and darkness to light. I definitely will comeback for my other body parts.

I have several tattoos that I’ve gotten from several different artists, but I don’t know any other artists I’d trust as much as I trust Cory. I’m 1-2 sessions from having a full L arm sleeve (all done by Cory) and every piece has come out amazing. Cory’s line work, shading, and vision is on par with the industry greats. I’ve done a lot of research on black & grey artists and can say for a fact that Cory’s in the upper echelon not just in Texas, but across the globe. Everyone that works in the studio is super chill and friendly. I get flash tats/spontaneous ink done a few different places, but when I need some heavy work done Cory’s my go-to guy.

The Studio:Lost Edge Tattoo is absolutely amazing, I would 10/10 recommend it. For starters, the shop was very clean and had a chill vibe to it, which matched perfectly with the friendly nature of everyone there. I was able to enjoy some complimentary drinks in the waiting area while watching TV and talking to the receptionist. The music playing throughout the entire studio was a nice touch, with quality synced speakers set up in each room . The Experience: Tyler, a visiting artist, really took the time to talk through my tattoo idea and offer some really great recommendations and advice. He drafted a couple different options for me, with my wants and needs always at the forefront of the conversation. I very much felt like it was a collaborative design effort with me always being the lead. Also, Tyler took into consideration my future tattoo plans when designing the piece. Making sure to leave opportunity and patters that would allow for the next artist to flow into the piece organically, which I very much appreciated. The Result: All in all, I ended up leaving with a piece 10x better than what I walked in anticipating to get. Already booked my next appointment to work with Cory!

Absolute professional, just amazing work. Cory James worked with multiple images of my dog, and perfected every aspect of him that were important to me.

Amazing artist. Worth the wait. I was definitely an annoying client, but he worked with me, and in the end, everything was way better than anything I could have imagined up. He puts detail into every centimeter and the attention to detail shows. Can’t wait to schedule a second session with Cory. If you’re looking for epic grey and white work, come here!

Super clean and inviting environment. Everyone was extremely helpful during the scheduling, planning, and execution of the tattoo. I had a 3/4 sleeve done as my first tattoo and his design and input made the piece extremely special and original. I would definitely recommend going here for your tattoos. I am extremely happy with how the sleeve turned out, and I can’t wait to begin to think of ideas for my next tattoo!
