What our customers say

  • review rating 5  Great shop. Very professional and a reasonable price for the work that they do. I went in with an Idea of getting a Browns tattoo and they went above and beyond and made it look more badass then I ever thought.

    review rating 5  My experience was super awesome! Went there talked with Chris, he’s very cool and down to earth individual and made the atmosphere comfortable. We looked a few different tattoos lettering styles and he helped me choose the best one. Kevin actually did my tattoo, he was fantastic. Kevin was so determined to have the right placement of my tattoo that he a wasn’t satisfied until he got it right. I actually love the fact that he did that because he made me feel he wasn’t just putting my tattoo anywhere and sending me out the door. Thank you guys my experience was the best as always! Clean shop, smelled like it was clean and everything. I’ll be back soon!!!! Oh yeah anyone who reading this review don’t second guess this tattoo shop, it’s on point. I been here for all my tattoos! 👍🏽
