I am big fan of Dave Petko’s (Pepe) art and his tattooing skills. He was recommended to me by two separate friends of mine.
I liked his Facebook page to follow some of his work. Eventually I came across a whole series of landscape drawings he released and was instantly captured. His style of trees was EXACTLY what I was looking for. I reached out to him for an appointment and consultation and was very impressed with his responsiveness and how easy he was to work with.
Since this was my first tattoo I did not know what to expect. After I pitched my ideas to him and showed him some pictures of what I had in mind, he drafted a design for me that went way beyond my expectations. His actual tattooing skills are great. I love the way he is able to work with vibrant colours and has an eye for proportions and shading. His lines are clean and delicate. I have seen a few of his pieces tattooed on my friends and noticed how wide his skill range really is. If you like his art, reach out to him. You won’t be disappointed.
This is my second time visiting Black Ohm Tattoo in Whistler & second time with artist, Dave Petko. I first met with him six years ago and got a lovely Swallow tattoo on my chest. This NY I had a friend from the USA visiting and we commemorated the time with matching tattoos. Once again, Dave did a wonderful job! His line work is outstanding. We are both very happy and highly recommend the studio and Dave.
