Bang Bang Tattoo
Bang Bang Tattoo in New York City produces some stunning designs, ranging from colour pieces to black and white tattoos, and our Just Tattoo Of Us artist Danny is a big fan, telling MTV: "Everyone in his studio (are) really top quality artists."
Jon Boy's list of celebrity clientele is longer than our own arm, with the likes of Justin Bieber, Chloe Grace Moretz, Kylie and Kendall Jenner and loads more popping in to get some gorgeous, intricate, tiny tattoos.
Loved by our very own Charlotte Crosby, we're particularly big fans of their incredible big black and white pieces like the one above. They've even got their own TV show!
We're absolutely in AWE of Lewisink's optical-illusion body art, with the attention to detail on his geometric designs quite frankly leaving us speechless.
Electric Pick's comic and illustration-style tattoos are out of this world - and he's got a big fan in our very own Atom.
Speaking to MTV, Just Tattoo Of Us artist Atom sung his praises, saying: "He's working out of Tokyo a lot, really distinctive style, does lovely large work, also produces comics. (He's) amazing, big inspiration to me."
Scott's tattooed a huge list of celebrities, including Marc Jacobs, Orlando Bloom, Penelope Cruz and Josh Hartnett. The amount of detail and precision in all of his work is truly stunning, and his skull work is particularly impressive.
As well as producing some of the most incredible colour portrait tattoos ever, Nikko is probably most famous for creating Cheryl's big rose tattoo - and has since tattooed a Buddhist symbol on her chest, AND has tattooed her boyfriend, Liam Payne.
The amount of detail on Dr Woo's fine line and half needle work is truly amazing - so much so that the likes of Ariel Winter, Hilary Duff, Drake, Cara Delevingne and Miley Cyrus (and loads more) have all stepped into his studio to get their own tattoos.
Becca's artwork is bold, bright and absolutely beautiful, with colour in her work making each tattoo really stand out. She's had Lady Gaga in her studio too, inking an awesome trumpet onto her arm.
Our Just Tattoo Of Us artist Jodie is a big fan of Niki's intricate work, telling us: "I'm amazed with the amount of detail he can get into such a tiny tattoo."
And it seems Drake is a lover of his incredibly detailed work too, with Niki sharing photos of the tattoos he recently gave the star.
Just Tattoo Of Us artist Charl is a huge fan of Steve's amazing colour artwork, telling us: "Oh my god, his colour tattoos are out of this world. He's such a talented guy."
