Awesome place to get a tattoo. Eli gave me my first tattoo, and although I know i was a complicated customer he was really patient and made sure that I was satisfied with what I wanted on my body. My first tattoo was not painful at all, it actually tickled and Eli and I were laughing during some parts in the session. I recommend Eli, because he is so humble, his work is clean, and he has really light hands. I rate this tattoo shop a 5 star because the decor is interesting and the atmosphere of the workers are welcoming. I hope to come back if I ever want to get another tattoo again. Thanks again Eli !

My wife and I came in spontaneously and Eli was so friendly as he really made this spur of the moment for us special. Eli helped us finalize the design and was just outgoing the entire time we were there. We didn't have to wait long as another artist Saul did my tattoo. Saul was also professional, skilled, and really ensured the placement of my tattoo was where I wanted it to be.

Thank you to both Eli and Saul for their hospitality and commitment to detail as the matching tattoos they did for us came out perfect! If the shop is giving "The Goonies" meets "Pirates of the Caribbean" vibes, then you know you're in good hands.
