This is going to be long, but they deserve an excellent, detailed review.
I'd been to Read Street before in 03 and had a pretty good experience, so I went back to have a half sleeve worked around the piece I had already gotten there 6 years ago.
On first walking in, I really liked the atmosphere of the new location, and it was very clean and well kept
One or two people have written reviews that they didn't feel the artists were friendly, but I had the complete opposite experience, like most other posters. I've been to other shops for other tattoos, and have always felt that the artists act elitist, but this wasn't at all how I felt at Read Street.
I talked with Jeff about what I wanted and he came up with a really beautiful design that worked well with that I already had. He was really receptive to my ideas and made a lot of good suggestions, and made me feel very comfortable. I've completed 3 of 4 sessions to date, and have spent about 11 hours there so far, and I can say that the other artists that work there are equally respectful and friendly, as I've seen them interact with me and their own clients.
I would recommend this shop over any other. They are all phenomenal at their craft and are also cool, down-to-earth guys. I'll definitely be back.
