Nice work, can I have the name of your tattoo artist?

Tattoo artist sought in Central New York (preferably Syracuse).

I've a piece between my shoulders that I would like to get spruced up/covered up. I know very few folks with tattoo work in this area; getting recommendations from friends has fizzled out quickly.

I currently have a plainly designed, but fully colored butterfly. It has faded over the years, and I would like to make it more interesting. I have zero artistic skills, beyond appreciation. So, I'd like someone that can help guide the work artistically, as well.

I'd like to move towards a more intricately detailed tattoo, but I'm also open to tribal/knot work as well. In case that's any help in recommendations...

All of the artists at Scarab Body Arts on Walton Street in Syracuse are good and the shop is very clean.

I am friends with the owner of the shop, who is a highly respected body modification artist in his own right (but only does piercing and scarification). He has a ton of tribal tattoo work done by Nik. That's the shop owner's backpiece in the bottom row.

I haven't had any work done there, but my son was just at Scarab and was very impressed with the artist he talked to.
