My 16 year old daughter went to this place and I had told her: NO PIECINGS AND NO TATS. I am a single parent with a child 12 years younger than the first and have tried to give her something to look forward to when she turned 18. Her step-father, my husband also would not allow her to go. One day she came home with a nose ring, then she hid tattoos from me. Then she got two so BIG I had to notice. I was outraged and peeeeeeeeeed off! SHE WOULD NOT TELL ME HOW SHE GOT THIS DONE OR FROM WHERE. Now that she is 20 with a 3 month old son... she decided to open up because hey, what harm can it do. Well, we were driving by the area and she pointed out twice where the store was... conveniently less than 3/4 mile from my house. Come to find out her friends father who I don't know very well because he's in and out of prison said he was her dad. I think the whole family knew and talked to me on a regular basis but never said anything to me. I don't know how to act nor what to say. But I will tell you this, I KNOW that even if she gave this company a birth certificate, this man does not look like the father and does not have an ID saying he is.

Came here from Boston on the recommendation of a friend. got 2 sick tattoos. If you are looking for a hug, someone to rub your back and some words of encouragement then this is not your place, if you are looking for affordable and nice tattoos by a bunch of awesome guys, then you're in luck. As far as professionalism, From the moment walked in, I was introduced to everyone in the shop. The place was immaculate and they were exactly on time for my appointment , they provided me with more than i could ask for for less than an hour of tattooing in Boston. i would encourage anyone to get their ink here especially if they are looking for elaborate tattoos that are not traditional tattoo ideas.
I just had a tattoo done by Jay Blackburn. VERY clean studio and friendly staff. Easy to talk to and more than helpful. Not your typical "pick a tattoo from this book or off this wall and I'll stick it on you" kinda place. Jay took the time to talk and find out what I wanted and took my ideas and added his own artistic twist and came up with a tattoo that i am super proud of. Bring your ideas and possibly a picture of what you want and they'll make it come to life on your skin. I would definitely recommend this place and am going back myself.
I got a new piercing done today by Andee and he was really awesome! Very professional and funny! The shop was easy to find and it was very clean! Everything was sterile and all new needles were used as he opened up everything right in front of me! When I was done my sister got pierced next and he cleaned everything down including the chair before he started setting up to pierce her! Andee was also well educated and answered all questions I had! I would deff recommend going to Irish Rose! $20 piercing and an awesome piercer! You deff can't best that!!!! :-)
My first tattoo... ( Female Joker Portrait ) Ide like to thank Jay for doing an awsome job and exceeding my expectations. Ide also like to thank the entire crew for making me feel at home getting my first tat !! Theres no doubt in my mind when i show my portrait style "ink" Powerline will be getting more new customers. If youve never been to Powerline all you need to do is stop in to meet the crew, see all the awards they have won and samples of thier TOP quality work and you'll be sold. " It's always Sunny in Philadelphia " LOL !!
I loved this place.. I got my first tattoo here on my ankle and I absolutely love it. I had the tattoo artist, Mark, do the tattoo, and he is just really cool and down to earth. He took really good care of me because it being my first tattoo I was terrified. But, it wasn't bad at all, he told me exactly how to care for it and everything. Clean place, sterilized equipment, cool staff, awesome work, I will never go anywhere else and I am definitely telling my friends about this place!!!!!!!!!
It's obvious that Evan is an amazing tattoo artist with the art on the walls, and magazine spreads hung up in the shop. I've never been tattooed by him, but it would be an honor. My boyfriend and I have both been tattooed by Jay, and can't say enough good things about his work. My boyfriend was also tattooed by Mike, and he did a great job. Really knew what he was talking about. And, of course, they are all very nice people. The shop is really professional. It's the best place I've been to.
Both my daughter and I have been customers of Powerline. We were both beyond satisfied! The work on her back is amazing! People comment all the time . It's breath takingly beautiful work. We both were done by different artists both absolutely gifted with talent! we will definately be back there again! Also the place is light and very very clean! being in the medical field it's important to me and even I was very impressed!
I just got pierced today for the first time, the staffers were kind and knowledgeable, Andee was a great and attentive piercing artist. The shop easy to find, clean and well cared for and a friendly setting to boot. And get this, any piercing $20. Who can beat quality service at such low prices? Nobody. Getting pierced at Irish Rose was a wonderful experience.
