"Mike and I had never met, nor spoke previously, and yet he talked to me like an equal, working together to find what was needed to perfect my craft. The first conversation I had with Mike was right to the point. His humble ability to breakdown the “why” to the fundamentals of drawing/design, to the application, he boosted my abilities immediately, changing my work overnight!"

Awesome shop full of talent! Kyle did a beautiful job tattooing my dogs pawprint last night and really took his time getting in little details to make it as close to the actual inkprint as possible. I’ll definitely be back for more.

Mikes the owner of the shop, & does phenomenal work! He's a down to Earth guy, & can't wait to get back in the chair with him soon! All the guys in this shop are super talented, and the shop is probably one of the most cleanest tattoo shops I've ever been in! Keep up the good work guys! See you soon Mike!

The shop is fantastic and the staff/artists are super talented and friendly. Everyone offered help and opinions on my designs and the best location for the tattoo. Spencer the artist was awesome. He devoted tons of time setting the size perfectly, deciding the best colors to use and once it came to tattooing he was both brilliant and fast. This is the best studios I've ever been to. I highly recommend them.
