Best Tattoo Artist: Mike Woods

Mike Woods, owner of Advent Tattoo Studio and Art Gallery, has been transforming Houston's bodies into works of art, one sleeve at a time. Clean lines, detailed art and original designs — all while keeping abreast of new and innovative trends — makes this shop the go-to for quality art that will have your peeps asking, "Where did you get that ink?"

And if you're sad frowny face unhappy about a hideous tattoo that you got elsewhere, plead your case to the court and he just might work you in — Woods has certainly saved more than a few damsels in distress. He holds his staff up to those high standards too and, if you can't get in to see Woods as fast as you'd like, Mike Ashcroft is just as talented. Check out their work on Instagram (instagram.com/mikewoodsart and instagram.com/mikeashworthtattoos), then set your appointment at this amazing outside-the-loop shop that doubles as an art gallery.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
The Houston Press is a nationally award-winning, 32-year-old publication ruled by endless curiosity, a certain amount of irreverence, the desire to get to the truth and to point out the absurd as well as the glorious.
