A friend of mine is looking to do a full sleeve with a lot of colors. The problem is that most tattoo artist in this area don't know how to mix colors that pop well on darker complexions. Does anyone have any recommendations for tattoo artists, preferably in the Philadelphia metro area, who are adept with working on darker skin tones?

No Ka Oi Tiki specialize in Polynesian tattoos, apparently, so might have experience with darker skin tones. Most of their portfolio features lighter complexions, but there are examples of larger pieces on darker skin tones and get guest tattooists from Hawaii.

I've not used them, so this isn't a personal recommendation.
