I’m currently getting a piece done here by Joe and it’s incredible
, I absolutely love it! Everyone in the shop does superb work and they are all very talented. All of the artists put the customer first and honest enough to tell you if a piece just isn’t going to work instead of just doing it and leaving the customer unhappy with the work afterwards . I won’t go anywhere else for my tattoos and every artist in the shop is incredible .
