Do you rate these guy's skills ?

Have any of you even had any work done by them ?

Do they even come into discussion when discussing the top american tatoo artists ?

"top american tattoo artists"

Doesn't exist, there are probably hundreds of guys with equal skill,
its more who's style you like.
But yeah, they are certainly talented, Garver and James are no slouches,
I have seen some really slick stuff done by both of them.
Although I don't know what they charge.

The guys at Miami Ink are NOT anywhere near the top American tattoo artists, Garver included.

Guys that come to mind are Acker, Ciavarro, Booth, Past, Tyrrell, Joshua Carlton, James and Tim Kern, NIKKO, bryan reynolds, Mike DeVries, sean herman, Eric Merrill, Julio Rodriguez, Joe Capobianco, Brandon Bond, Albie Rock, Dave Tedder and COUNTLESS others.

Awesome list! I'll have to also add to that my artist, Marshall Bennett. He was taught by Bob Tyrrell and Tom Renshaw!

hmmm....

i actually almost dont like everyone on that list of yours.

i hate color realism, especially if its with a pneumatic, that takes out almost half your list.

garver is so well rounded its retarded. he can do traditional american and make it look authentic, he can do realism, black and grey and does great japanese.

garver is definitely on that list of great tattooers period.

i would also take jose lopez and jun over tyrell and booth any friggan day of the year.
respect to both tyrell and both, but jun is pushing the limits of black and grey and he is only 20 years old.

your list also lacks a lot of japanese style artist, of course its not everyones cup of tea, but the scale, scope, and traditions steeped in pulling off proper japanese tattoos is worthy of being noted.

honestly though tattoos are so subjective to taste and style.

but there are a few game changers.

shige comes to mind, filip leu, booth for sure for making the horror genre what it is today. jack rudy ect...
