Logan Aguilar, custom tattoo artist at New York’s Paul Booth"s Last Rites Tattoo Theatre. 511 West 33rd Street 3rd floor. Between 10th and 11th avenues. (212) 529-0666 I’m an award winning tattoo artist with over a decade of experience specializing in photo realistic tattoos such as photo realistic portraits & color work. I believe the answer to bringing great artwork to life is to start off with your clients with Kindness. When you treat people with understanding and respect, they are more comfortable with expressing their ideas and the feeling that they want to be portrayed in their tattoo. Like creating music, it is important to "jam" with the client and together create something amazing. To create something that my clients could not have imagined even in their dreams, is the most fulfilling feeling that I can ever ask for …
Talented beyond words.
My parents are both gone and I wanted to get a back piece in their memory. I went to a local shop in Suffolk County and showed him a photo. The outline was okay but when it came to coloring it in that guy got it all wrong.
We went to Logan and asked if he could fix what was done. Not only did Logan fix the first guy's work, he finished the back piece so that no one notices the screw up. Logan understood what I wanted and I truly believe he cared; that he cared how I felt and what the tattoo symbolizes for me. Logan found the most awesome colors for my back piece and transformed it into something I show off whenever I can.
Shortly after he finished my back piece I went back to Logan to have him do an original piece. I showed him a picture for concept and he ran with it. He suggested black and grey and several hours later I had an amazing bit of Logan's art on my body.
I don't know if I like the mind game I play with myself to keep back the pain when getting drilled but whatever the cost of pain, its worth it.
You need to have a consult with Logan for your next piece. You will be totally thrilled, blown away and awe struck when he is done.
I'm looking forward to my next tattoo by Logan but my hubby has a portrait appointment with Logan first. ::jealous::
Best Artist in NYC... possibly/probably the world..
I rarely write reviews. I reserve writing them for people who truly deserve acknowledgement for how incredible they are. Logan is one of these people.
Without going into excessive detail I came to Logan with an idea of a tattoo I wanted based off of getting through an extremely difficult year. I knew Logan through my friend who had gotten several tattoos done by him and I already knew that his artwork was beyond the best. His work is so flawless I often questioned if I was looking at a tattoo or a painting. The talent that he has is unparalleled.
Not only did Logan give me the most spectacular tattoo that I am proud to have on my body forever, he also makes the experience enjoyable and personal. He instantly puts you at ease and helps make the more painful moments (mine was on the ribs) much more pleasant. I cannot speak highly enough of his professionalism and expertise. If you want to have something more than just a tattoo then go to Logan. He gave me one of the biggest gifts I've ever received in my life. He effortlessly helped me to move on to a new beginning and gave me a phenomenal permanent reminder that life is constantly changing and evolving and that it is a beautiful thing.
Logan Aguilar - Best Tattoo NYC.
I met Logan back in mid 2010 where i came to him with 5 very different life events that I wanted brought to life in a black and white sleeve. Taking those ideas he detailed a great nautical 'old man and the sea" theme. Since it's been done, I've been stopped 100's of times asking me who did this and what amazing detail...
He is so good, that we're currently working on my second sleeve "evolution"
stunning ocean tattoo.
I recently went to see Logan to fix a mermaid tattoo that's a few years old. All I had were very abstract ideas about shading, background, and the ambiance I wanted to create. After discussing our initial thoughts for the piece, I realized that I wasn't talking to a typical tramp-stamp, zodiac sign tattoo artist. Logan is incredibly passionate about all of his work. Unlike other business-minded artists, Logan's work bleeds integrity. He is still very much present in all of his pieces, and is not willing to compromise quality in order to make a few bucks.
After our conversations, Logan was able to execute an absolutely stunning ocean sketch on my arm. I wasn't completely sure what I wanted the piece to look like until I saw it. He obviously listened to everything I said, because the sketch was perfect.
I still have about 8 hours of coloring left to do-and I absolutely can't wait. I am so in love with it already...it's going to be AMAZING!
best tattoo in NYC. I found Logan on the Internet Time Out mag rated him one of the best in New York City. I went to his web site and found his work incredible . I was not looking for just another tattoo.I wanted body art. So I went to see him in his shop in the East Village. I told him that I was looking for a tattoo that would symbolize my love for my wife. He took all my ideas and when I came back to get inked he had it layed out beautifully. The piece was more than what I had expected and my wife loved it so much she called and thanked him. It brought tears to her eyes. Logan is truly gifted .
My first tattoo. Well, Logan was very gentle with his conversation as well as his work. I wasn't to nervous because I have friends with tats and they already prepared me for it , but after talking to Logan I knew I was in the best hands especially for my first tat. The best part about working with Logan is his artistic enthusiasm u tell him what u want and his response is excitement and eagerness. He is just a great person and I am hard on people but he seems to really enjoy his work which makes the best people the best so go see him and tell him Donnel sent you.
Awesome tattoo artist.
Logan Aguilar is truly an artist. He took a basic idea I had and transformed it into a masterpiece. I don't even want to imagine how my tattoo would have turned out if I had went to a lesser skilled artist. It was well worth the price in my opinion.
Besides being an excellent tattoo artist he's also a nice, funny guy who will put you at ease, especially if this is your first time getting a tattoo, as was mine. Afterwords he was also very thorough and patient when explaining proper aftercare procedure and even asked me to come back in 8 weeks to check up on it. I've been referring him to others as often as possible and if I ever decide to get another tattoo I'll be sure to contact him.
Amazing Artist. Logan really got it. A tattoo is an intensely personal matter and I often have difficulty explaining what I see in my head. Logan not only got it, he was able to execute it. I could not be happier. He is an amazingly talented and empathetic artist.
portait comes to life. i highly recommend logan aguilar. his work is magical, his work comes to life. best tattoo artist i ever been 2. will be going again. great staff, great shop . thanx again logan
Nicest tattoo artist ever!!!.
I visited New York from the 7th till the 14th December and was looking to get a tattoo done there.
Being a french woman and living in Africa I had to look for a tattoo place on the internet. After reading all about all the fashionable tattoo places, I found Logan Aguilar site and realized he was was the perfect tattoo artist for my project. I sent him an email explaining my project and he replied straight away that he would be happy to help me. After several emails we decided on two appointments (discuss the idea and then the tattoo). I was so amazed by Logan kindness by email and was not deceived when I met him in person.
I had some ideas about what to do but was not sure on what would be the best for my ankle and for tattooing a scar. Logan showed me some drawings but was not to convinced. Suddenly he went in his office and came back with the most perfect cherry blossom flowers drawing I had ever seen!!!
On the day of my tatto, I arrived absolutely stressed out knowing how an ankle tattoo hurts and even more on a scar. Logan was really calm and made me feel a bit better. I won't lie saying that the tattoo did not hurt (this is part of why you want a tattoo) but Logan movements were so precise and featherlike that it was more than fine. It took Logan about 1 hour to finish the tattoo. He gave me all the instructions to care for it.
Everybody is amazed by my tatto stating that it does not look like one but more like a painting. The colors are blending perfectly together and the lines are so fine...
I can really say that Logan is a real artist and you won't regret to get a tatto from him. He is kind, listens to you. I do believe he has a gift for feeling what your true idea is and making it real.
If it is your first tattoo or if you like arts, I would really recommend Logan who I am sure will realize the perfect design for you
