Awesome Tat, look no further than Aacross the Skin ★★★★☆ I contact the staff at Aacross the Skin in advance to let them know what I was looking to have tattooed and who there could do it. Having had a bad experience at another tattoo parlor, I wasn't interested in someone who 'will probably be the best' to do what I requested. Cassandra assured me Brandon was the guy I needed. Sure enough when I came in on the day, I brought several pictures to give Brandon some ideas of what I was looking for. The went to work drawing up a unique piece of art. I can't say enough great things about the tattoo itself, how at ease the staff made me, how clean the office was. Hell he stopped the clock when he needed to take a break so I didn't get charged for time when I wasn't in his chair. I will only have Brandon tattoo me from now own. I am honored to proudly display his work to the world.
Patrick Flynn has been one of my artists since he worked in Murfreesboro, TN and I've remained close friends with him since moving and have even traveled to him to let him do my work. He is without a doubt one of the best artists out there. He takes time and pays close attention to detail. He cuts up and will try his best to make you enjoy your time while he's tattooing and working on you and for you. He's finished everything he's ever done on me in one session and they've been big pieces and for the work he does, it is pricey but that's what happens when you go to someone who knows what they're doing. Ive never had any issues with the guy and neither have any of the four friends of mine that he has done artwork on. Plan on going back to see him whenever I get downtime from work. Fantastic artist.
Aacross the Skin is a wonderful tattoo studio. As a concerned mother I visited a number of shops in Asheville and it's surrounding areas. AAcross the skin was by far the nicest, most professional, and most of all sterile. Not to say the others were dirty, not all of them atleast but just the smell of the studio itself smells clean. I asked a million questions the girls working there and they not once made me feel like I was a bother. Infact they took me on a tour of the sterilizing procedure and were just so sweet and nice about any questions I had. Honestly I would truely recommend these outstanding folks to any mother or friend I know.
