I spent years thinking and debating what kind of tattoo I wanted and came up with a tattoo in my head and I was stuck on this idea of this tattoo. I wanted this tattoo very much and there is no way or no one that could change my mind because I made up my mind and thought about it for years. I am a person that overthinks everything. I went to different tattoo shops all throughout San Antonio. I found almost everyone was rude and acted like I had no knowledge of tattoo or what I wanted; many others tried to talk me out of it, or gave me ideas to change it. I never got a quote because they never took the time to understand what I wanted. I went to Platinum tattoos in April of 2014, first off the shop is very clean and the lady at the front desk was very nice and talked to me about each Artist, lucky for me an Artist was filling in for someone at the Dezavala location and his name was “Picasso”. This artist sure lived up to the name and was very nice and talked to me about the tattoo and quoted me right on the spot. This artist drew an outline of my tattoo without having anything to reference to, just the idea of the tattoo I wanted. The tattoo took about 4 hours, he talked to me throughout the process, and making sure I was doing ok. When he was done my mind was blown, I could not believe that he tattooed this amazing piece of art work on my body. For years I could only imagine this tattoo on me, and the tattoo was better than I could have ever imagined, I could not thank him enough. If you’re looking for a shop and you have high expectations then go to Platinum Tattoo, you will not regret it!!!
Not your average tattoo shop... or barber shop... or pool hall -- it's ALL that and more. New location is being put together real well, and looking better all the time. You'll find great video entertainment, too, so go check it out!
10. D's Body Ink
A couple of friends (all females) and I went in to get piercings, we never felt uncomfortable in the place. Despite it being all men that work in that place. They remained professionals at all times. We would definitely use them again.
I went there to get a tattoo to honor my fiancée who passed. He took the time to listen to what I was wanting. I have a beautiful tattoo that honors Richard. He will be doing any more tattoos I get. It is important for them to listen to what you want then transfer it into art
It's not that we're fans of pain, but we ARE fans of this shop. It's a cozy intimate place with an intense tattoo buzz for knock down art, and just intense in general! Nice location in Hispanic neighborhood, reasonable pricing.
21. Addiction Tattoo
I love Addiction! Xavier is the only one who pierces me, but Vanessa and Wicked are awesome piercers, too, a lot of my friends have been pierced by them. I haven't been tattooed there yet, but I have big plans with Richard, he's AMAZING! Plus, everyone is always having such a good time, it se…
If you want a REAL Texas Style Tattoo try Honest Charlie's. After seeing my friends tattoos I went there for one. You will get no kissass treatment and they do not do piercings, sell equipment or as Charlie told me "no disco pants or haircuts either" but they CAN tattoo. Charlie has be…
Come to Timebomb, and feel the love! This shop stays busy all the time because people keep coming back to where they're treated RIGHT. A lot of piercing going on around here, too. You can depend on Marcie to be there in her simply magical way to help you decide what to get. Stop by today!
Had a forearm tattoo done here about 3 weeks ago. Though my appointment started at 3, I got out of class early (around 2:15) so I decided to head over there and hope my artist would be ready for me. Unfortunately he wasn't but it was no big deal since I cleared my entire day's schedule to get my tattoo. 2 1/2 hours later, he was finished with the stencil and it looked great! He got a slightly different picture than I had given him, but it was lighter and allowed him to copy more of the details hidden in my photo so that was a plus. We finally got started around 5:30pm. Almost 6 hours and 3 breaks later, he was finished. The detail in my finished tattoo was amazing! It was way above my expectations (no offense) of what I thought he could do. The only thing that's preventing me from giving this shop 5 stars is the fact that I spent close to 8 hours of my day for about an 8 inch tattoo on the inner part of my forearm. Wish there would have been less breaks or at least a slightly bigger size, but I am completely satisfied with my tat nonetheless. Definitely going back for my sleeve except this time I'm gonna check up to see how my stencil is coming along before I show up and spend a good chunk of my day just waiting.
After a horrible experience at the Platinum on 410 E where the practitioners were both rude and unattentive to clients, today i paid a visit to Platinum off Evers and I was pleasantly surprised at how different these shope are. Not only is the staff friendly and professional, but they value their clients and strive to please. Today I had 2 individuals who had to correct my lip piercing and 1 who gave me an amazing tat on my foot. They were clean, professional and definitely made up for the lack of quality found at the Platinum off 410 E. Even the manager was social and proactive with the clients despite some people's previous reviews as to him being a jerk, that is highly NOT the case. Platinum off Evers is the only place i will take my friends and sorority sisters, every other place is by far lacking in comparision. Thanks guys for your service and my brokn arrow. Ill definitely see you on mONDAY!!! -kRISTINA
