My brother was in town for an impromptu weekend, and we decided that we “needed” to get tattoos in memory of our late grandmother. I went with something in her handwriting on my arm; Jack did it perfectly, adding a small change to make it perfect. I could not be happier. My brother decided to get a larger piece. Royce worked with him to draw out exactly what he wanted, and executed it amazingly. Being sxsw weekend I was really not sure walking into a shop on S Congress was a good plan, but these guys exceeded every expectation I have for a tattoo artist. Clean, professional, honest, amazing artists but they also had us laughing with their jokes, which made the time more enjoyable. I also watched as they calmly explained to some people making that drunk tattoo bad decision why they may want to sleep on it, and still stay calm as people rudely demanded next to impossible requests. I can’t say enough good things about this place, seriously, quit searching, this is the place you want.
I have gotten all my tattoos and piercings at Ressurection Tattoos. They price much cheeper, they quote you on your tatt, they dont charge by the hour. I got a solid tribal design on my back, a 4 1/2 hour job done for $250! That was my first tattoo and after that i have had the same guy, Roger, do all of mine: my back, both arms half sleeved and even a free one on my calf. They are very friendly and cool and most reasonable and provide great advice and feedback and touchups are always free! Piercings are much cheeper too, I have had 9 piercings from them. They have really grown since the last time I was there and for good reason. With them there is no need to worry about the cold shoulder or rudeness.
I came here after having a Rude Experience with Atomic (on Burnet Rd) I wanted to add to an existing tattoo and get another on my lower back. I forgo the guy's name that greeted us but he was very helpful and he even got some ideas form Will about how to make the existing tattoo look so that you couldnt tell it was a cover up.Will actual asked for some time to work on it which I can respect him for. I mean it showed me that he didnt just want to throw something on and risk me not liking it. So I only got my lower one and it came out really goo. He mad me feel comfortable and let me pick out my own music to listen to. I will definatle go back to him to get the other one completed.
