    They will not let me know the status on Steve the barber who had an unfortunate accident back in February of 2021.

    Super easy to communicate with them, helpful responses to emails. Great vibe inside and the tattoo came out great!

    I truthfully wish I could give more than 5 stars. Every experience I have had with BBTC has been the best anyone could possibly ask for. The receptionist is so friendly and is always very patient with me and any of the questions I have. Marissa is an unbelievably talented artist that has never failed to impress me with her extremely talented work. She is super detail oriented and has made every idea I've had a hundred times better than I could have ever imagined. She really takes the time to listen to my ideas and does an AMAZING job. Everything about this shop is great and everyone has made me feel super comfortable, I will never go anywhere else to get tattooed.

    Been going to Boston Barber and Tattoo for haircuts nearly 7 years, and can definitely say I feel more certain i’m walking out with a great cut from here than anywhere else.There’s a lot of solid barbers, and a few who I don’t love as much and won’t go to anymore, but from my experience, and for my style, Ricky and Netty are top tier. Ricky charges a little more, but if you need *any* stylistic work with scissors, i gotta hand #1 to Ricky. Netty’s overall just really sweet and can fade sides like none other, and I would definitely recommend her if that’s a focus for youI used to love the old system they had where you could walk in and put your name up for someone specific, or just take the luck of the draw. Was great to go on a leap of faith, but once you narrow down who you like going to, the new booking system is quite nice.Boston Barber has a strong Boston culture, which may intimidate visitors less accustomed to the people here, but like much of this city, everyone is so friendly and funny once you get to know them. Top notch banter every time

    They are rude and overpriced but I am actually fine with all that. Where I draw the line is encouraging people to come in with COVID and lying to customers. They obviously don't care about the health and safety of their staff or clients. No overpriced haircut is worth killing someone's family member... If you must keep giving them money (which they seem desperate for based on their cancellation policies) please go to the Beacon Hill location where the manager isn't incompetent. Edit based on reply from owner (who refers to himself as "The Eagle" lololol): When I called to cancel (hours before appointment) because I was exposed to COVID your receptionist told me just come in or get charged $45. When I questioned the safety of this for staff and other clients she said she would not charge me. Then you charged me anyway. When I spoke with a male manager (or you) yesterday you said "the whole COVID excuse is getting old". I wouldn't take your money if you offered it. Another Edit (based on another reply from owner / "Eagle" with threats of violence lol): I just looked at other negative reviews and your responses are all the same no matter what issues people raise. Note: The owner / "Eagle" has since deleted his previous threats of violence (but I still have all of the screen shots) and requests for me to come to shop and fight him hahaha. Funny how he changed his tone and realized he was creating bad press for himself. Too late though. Bottom line: dishonest, unsafe, and owner has the temper of a maladjusted baby (or Eaglet if you will). Threatens violence if you complain (see Yelp, google, Facebook etc.). Then his wife or Yelp or someone makes him change it (repost the old reply Eagle Bob! It was gold!)

    Got my first tattoo with Cat here. She was very patient during the consultation and quick with the tattoo. All the girls were super sweet and welcoming. Tried to call late in the day and no one answered. Also tried to get an appointment through the website (couldn’t get an slot either) Walked in the next day and they had an availability for 6pm that day. Totally worth it though! Definitely coming back.

    A lot of great personality here, and you really feel like you can just vent to your barber about life or just have a nice conversation with

    I absolutely love my tattoo by Marissa! I had the idea in mind for a long time but had been waiting for the right artist to create it. She is insanely talented. My entire experience with the shop was great. When I first contacted them back in January, the receptionist was so friendly and answered all my questions. She also offered me a consultation with Marissa so I could discuss my tattoo idea in advance which was awesome. I had my tattoo done over 2 sessions and the staff made the environment and experience friendly, comfortable, and inviting. I can't wait to get another tattoo by Marissa - She's definitely worth the wait!

    The artists at Boston Barber & Tattoo Co are by far the best and nicest artists I've ever had the pleasure of meeting and working with! Their work is amazing and their portfolios are amazing! I have had Marissa and Lauchie both tattoo me so far and their work is phenomenal and their customer service is exceptional! I have also looked up the work from all the other artists in the shop and their work is just as beautiful! The shop is extremely clean and they offer drinks for customers. I would recommend this shop 100x over if I could! If you are looking either a hair cut or a tattoo either way you are going to walk out of this shop very happy with your service! Please check them out! You will not be disappointed!
