The Incredible Ink of Meg McNiel

The Incredible Ink of Meg McNiel

There are approximately 1,000 tattoo artists in the metro Phoenix area. Meg McNiel, the subject of this week's New Times feature story, stands out from the crowd, not just because only about 20 percent of all tattoo artists are female, but also because she specializes in the rarer "American traditional" style of inking. And she excels at it. Here are some prime examples of McNiel's work. All images courtesy of Meg McNiel.
