Japanese Tattoos in Dallas

Traditional Japanese tattooing, aka Irezumi, originated during the Edo period (1603-1868). Mythological creatures like dragons, kirins, and phoenixes are common imagery of the Japanese tattoo style. Every tattoo done in the Irezumi style tells a story about Japan’s rich past, and creates an Irezumi masterpiece that is deeply powerful.

Meet Scott Cooksey, Owner of Lone Star Tattoo

Scott Cooksey began tattooing in 1995. In the early days, Scott tattooed in shops in Dallas’ Deep Ellum and downtown districts. Scott quickly fine-tuned his skills and moved up the ladder in the Dallas tattoo scene. Before opening Lone Star Tattoo in 2005, Scott spent part of each year on the road traveling to other tattoo shops around the country as a guest artist and attending tattoo conventions.

Tattoo Testimonials & Featured Clients

I highly recommend this place! Andrea did a great job on my tattoo, it looks better than the example I gave her. And Milan was so patient with my daughter who was getting her first tattoo and doesn't do well with pain.

V. Sullivan

Scott Cooksey is an amazing tattoo artist. My left arm sleeve turned out great! Also, he was super cool to deal with. He also was very responsive to texting and always got back to me quickly. I appreciate everything Scott! Thanks a million. Hope to get some more work done in the future.

Matt did a fabulous job on my double nose piercing. I will definitely be back.
