Liz Cook: Perfect Portraiture
If you follow Liz Cook’s work, you’re familiar with how she attacks color realism and portraiture. The Dallas, Texas-based female tattoo artist is co-owner of Rebel Muse, which has two locations and is home to talented artists including Danny Elliott, Ben Amos, and fellow co-owner David Mushaney.
Cook has a fine arts degree in studio painting and drawing and started tattooing in 2009. She’s become well known for her realistic style and her ability to saturate color and bring a tattoo to life. She’s tattooed images of lifelike movie characters, insane pet portraits and floral tattoos that look like they can be plucked off the skin.
If you’re a fan of tattoo reality television, then you may recognize Cook from the short-lived TLC series “Tattoo Girls” where she joined the crew of Ink Ink in Missouri. Cook was painted as the villain of that series but told the Dallas Observer that it’s to be expected from reality T.V.
Besides doing incredible realistic tattoos, Cook also offers cosmetic procedures such as nipple reconstruction, brow tattoos, and skin pigmentation tattoos.

“I just find ways to go around it and so it isn’t an issue being a woman tattooer. I never allow that to be something that can victimize me.”– Liz Cook, Dallas Observer
