Owner and Artist
Owner of Lone Star Tattoo, Scott Cooksey, began tattooing in 1995. In the early days, Scott tattooed at shops in Dallas’ Deep Ellum downtown nightlife districts. Early on, Scott became passionate and knowledgeable in the American Traditional and irezumi- traditional Japanese motifs. Intensely studying the tattoo masters like Horiyoshi III, Hokusai (Japanese painter 1760-1849), Sailor Jerry Collins, Bert Grimm and Don Ed Hardy, and being influenced by the likes of Austin tattooers Dave Lum and Chris Trevino. Scott fine tuned his craft of tattooing into what some call “Texas Style” tattooing. 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.

My wife had her nose pierced a few weeks ago. Everyone was very nice. Even got a quote on a Tattoo that others said they couldn't do. Will be going this Saturday to get it put on. Update: awesome job by Gilbert! I definitely found my tattoo place!
Matt did my nose piercing and he was GREAT!! From the young lady that greeted me first to some of the others in there..they were so nice. I didnt have to wait at all. Matt was so informative, sweet and he really helped me not to freak out. I will be back for my next tattoo. Keep up the great work you're doing!
Andrea has done 4 of my 5 tattoos and all are great and every time I got in taken care of!
