average talent, huge egos, rude, cocky environment
If you'd like to pay too much for a mediocre tattoo and get looked down on by the arrogant staff, by all means head to 13 Roses. There counter ""help"" consists of an arrogant 19 year old looking scenester chick who thinks she totally rules cause she makes minimum wage at a tattoo shop, and a 19 year old looking scenster dude that appears to have taken his last shower maybe 3 or 4 months ago. To be fair though, he's only slightly cocky and somewhat friendly. Most of the artists that work there have very poor personal hygiene, so I totally get the ""creepy, pervy vibe"" the other reviewer picked up. Hell I'm covered in ink and I still shower and brush my teeth daily.
This shop has no nationally known artists, yet acts as if its gods gift to the tattoo community. Atlanta literally has dozens of wonderful, award winning shops. Please do yourself a favor and look elsewhere. The guys at 13 Roses are average at best, rude and overpriced at worst, and they're posers to boot.
