    I didn't get a tattoo here but still reviewing so maybe others don't have the same experience. I emailed to get a consult Appt. They said my original idea wouldn't work well in the space I wanted it. So I went with another plan. I emailed pictures and sketches of what I was looking for. I get a response with consult time and I agree to the time. They responded with who the consult is with. I drive 45m to get there. Wait for 15 or so past Appt time. No big deal. Guy comes out and asks what I'm looking to get. I'm confused because I'd sent what I was looking for. Whatever, I show him pics and explain. He doesn't do that kind of work. He doesn't do realism, which is full review

    One of the best experiences I've ever had in a tattoo shop. I loved working with Isaac on my tattoo idea. He took my idea and made it into something better than expected. It was so much better than the thought I had in my head. He was so worth the wait. I made my consultation appointment with him in August and got my piece in October. His price is comparable compared to the other places I have been to before. He made me feel very relaxed through the whole process. Can't wait to get more work done by him!

    I was very nervous getting my first tattoo, but Casey was really great. He was patient and understanding and gave me a little time to collect myself before he started. He was also very detail-oriented about the placement of my tattoo (my ring finger)--making adjustments that I didn't even notice needed adjusting. The final result is beautiful, and I've already received compliments on it. He used my handwriting, so when I look at my tattoo, it looks like I wrote it on my finger, which is what I wanted. I'm a very satisfied customer!
