“I wish I could give this more stars! On a whim stopped on and we won the lottery with this shop. It’s the most cutest, most chill and vibey shop. Everyone from the front desk to the other artists were so amazing. We instantly felt comfortable and knew we’d be in good hands. Alexa was welcoming, took time to make sure we were happy even though it was simple and didn’t rush. On our second visit Kevin really made sure I got what I was looking for from placement to application and was easy to talk. I really can’t say enough about this shop.Service: Tattoos”

“Stopped and got a tattoo while visiting Nola with my partner. Absolutely loved this place! Chris (my tattoo artist) was absolutely great. I almost passed out during the process and Chris literally talked me down from it. Wonderful guy, wonderful shop. Also, I found out the queen died during the middle of my tattoo, so that was cool.”

“What a wonderful shop! I’m a bit overdue in posting my review but the pleasure of our experience is still fresh and our thanks most sincere. My husband and I are locals and we walked in about a month ago looking to each get a tattoo. We were most professionally greeted and immediately matched up with Julia. Our next observation was how clean the shop was, the nicest we’ve seen in NOLA. Julia was awesome and gave us exactly what we were looking for. We’ll definitely be back!Service: Tattoos”

“I was tattooed by Samantha Sue at this shop. Sam was the absolute best tattoo artist to go to for my first tattoo. She was patient, friendly, and very clearly explained the process to me. When I was getting tattooed, Sam was always professional, had a very clean work station, and let me know we could take breaks anytime. Probably the most important thing to me was that she does not have a “one size fits all” approach. She’s been tattooing a long time and quickly noticed I have sensitive skin. She was very good about ensuring she didn’t do too much for my skin to handle. I appreciated that!The tattoo itself is amazing. I’ve included pictures. Her attention to detail is so, so good. I cannot recommend getting a tattoo from her highly enough!”

“Brenna was my piercing artist, and she was awesome! I've never been to a tattoo shop, and my ears were pierced as a baby, so of course I don't remember it. The shop was very clean and well decorated. It also smells nice. Brenna was welcoming and warm like an old friend. Her voice was calming, and her conversation put me at ease. I definitely recommend this shop.”
