Fortunately, Deano Cook is one of the aforementioned “exceptionally good ones”. His images of underwater and coral reef life are hypnotic, calm and expertly rendered. If you love the ocean and want to show that love in a tattoo, Deano Cook is absolutely your man. Of course, it certainly helps the situation that Cook is an outdoor enthusiast. He fishes, scuba dives and works on his other passion in life, underwater photography. Even Cook’s home has two salt water fish tanks, further proof of a man whose genuine passion for the beauty of the sea motivates the day to day work that he does.
I’ve only wanted to improve myself from day one of learning to tattoo. For me, the desire to learn never ends. I try to give people what they want, and people certainly want very different things, so I’ve learned to accommodate. When you broaden your horizons you can only improve. I’ve also found that when I learn in different mediums and forms of art, I can almost always apply these findings to my tattooing.

Cook began tattooing in 1993 and by 1994, he had opened up his own tattoo studio called Psycho Tattoo, in Atlanta, Georgia. Jump ahead 16 years and Psycho Tattoos has three different locations within Atlanta: the original in Marrieta (where Deano can be found), one in Sandy Springs, and one in Douglasville.
