I went to this shop this past weekend with my wife and her sister...well I was only suppose to get one, and it ended up my wife and her sister got one. It's been almost a week and all of ours are healing perfect. The parlor is very clean and sanitized and he has many pics of his past work that made us feel good by choosing this parlor. His prices were also good. The owner/artist is a cool guy and made my wife and her sister feel comfortable since it was their first tats. Many designs to chose from. Needless to say, I've made an appt to go back next week. Ck out this parlor, I highly recommend it.
