Lud did a tattoo for me about 10 years ago. The shading is amazing and the color looks brand new. I have since gotten a few other pieces and none have the same talent or experience as Lud. I am actually about to drive more than three hours to have him do another. He is incredibly talented and extremely funny. If you want an amazing tattoo done in a clean environment by the most talent artist I have ever meet call Lud.
