Owner & Artist
Bryan Willms is the owner of The Lacquered Dagger in Detroit Lakes MN. He is celebrating 24 years in the industry and has been tattooing since he was a teenager. A Washington native, Bryan moved to the Detroit Lakes area in 2019.
Bryan has his roots in black and gray horror but enjoys working in a variety of styles - especially large, character focused work and art styles not commonly seen in tattooing. Having been in the industry for so long, Bryan has seen a lot of styles rise and fall – and has experience in most. He is also an experienced cover-up artist and can provide extensive guidance in the best way to cover old ink.
