Ian was amazing!

Came in as a walk in, he was willing to get me started right away. He was friendly and understanding to my needs, and covered some scar tissue perfectly. Got the tattoo done quickly and it looks awesome. This place is clean and all the staff was super friendly. I will definitely be back for my next tattoo! Thanks again Ian!

great time for my first time.

First time getting getting a tattoo and just as a walk in. The staff were super friendly and affable, I was nervous but as soon as I just blurted out what I wanted, they hopped right on it and had a confidence about it that was extremely reassuring. The artist that helped me was Ian, but all in there were nice and honest. It was a great time for my first time.
