2017 Best Tattoo Artist

George Motta, Pino Bros Ink

You may recognize George Motta from an episode of Wahlburgers, during which he bestowed on Mark Wahlberg’s friend Nacho a permanent portrait of Marky Mark himself. Even if you’re after some decidedly subtler ink (and we hope you are), Motta’s up for the task. Just be sure to book early, as the artist’s reputation for crafting beautiful, incredibly realistic images has earned him a long waiting list for appointments.
