Texas Best Award Winning Celebrity Tattoo Artist

You Don't Want Your Tattoo Done by Just Anybody—Join Charles Huurman

Our tattoo artist Charles Huurman may look familiar to you because of his work with TV celebrity artists like Ryan Ashley Malarquey from INK Master and Ami James from Miami Ink. But despite being singled out as Texas Best Tattoo Artist in numerous articles and magazines, he is so not about the hype.

What Charles IS all about is the art of tattooing. He understands that getting inked is a big decision, and sure, the design is important. But so is how you vibe when you wear it. The custom designs he creates can't be replicated. Your tattoo will show clearly who you are as an individual, your culture, your family, and anything else you want to express about the world around us.

For 16 years, Charles has been working as a professional Realism Tattoo Artist. During this time, he has gained respect as a Texas Award Winning tattoo artist with global recognition. 

Before starting this career, Charles was a painter. His experience in the fine art world significantly enhanced his abilities as a Realism Tattoo Artist. He creates hyper realistic 3D tattoos that genuinely look like the real thing. You need to see it to believe it!

In his role as a Texas Celebrity tattoo artist today, he does it all. His talent really shines through on big pieces like full sleeves, which are always clear and cohesive rather than looking like a group of images stitched together. Whether you want color, black and gray, or an abstract design, Charles has got you covered.

Well-established artists are invited to attend but must first submit their portfolios for approval.

When a Celebrity Tattoo Artist in Texas is in such high demand, you may assume that he has a full schedule. That's true, but amazingly, Charles still finds time to meet with clients like you and very much enjoys these collaborations. After all, perhaps your idea will become his next award-winning design.

Currently, he is scheduling meetings with friends both new and old who desire to join his tribe and continue with him on his fantastical journey! Shoot us a message and tell us more about yourself for consideration.

Inspirational story. Why is he so motivated?

His father, a talented oil painter, had never managed to make a living exclusively with his art. However, for Charles’ it was different this time, he had lost it all, so he considered he had nothing to lose...

I would love to hear from you!
