I'd been wanting a cover up for a while for a bad tattoo done at a tattoo party when I was 21. My husband and I were celebrating our 10-year annniversary in Oahu and decided that a tattoo would be the perfect way to commemorate our trip.
I looked up reviews online and found several top-rated shops. We visited one, but didn't get any warm fuzzies. Hit Tattoolicious next. The receptionist wasn't so impressive. She seemed preoccupied with the computer and wasn't real friendly but was polite enough. I felt we had to dig information out of her. I decided I was here for a tattoo, and that I'd base my decision on the artists and the online reviews, not the woman at the counter. We returned later that day, met Andy King, and made an appointment for the next day. When we showed up, he'd drawn a great picture of a hibiscus. From the get go, he was very nice, precise, gentle hand. Everything you'd want. I was thrilled by how little it hurt and even more thrilled with the result of the tattoo. I'd had 2 other small tattoos by different artists back home, and both tattoos had developed deep scabs and ended up looking like crap. I told Andy about this, and he obviously took care because his tattoo healed beautifully! Hardly any peeling, no scabbing whatsoever, bright beautiful colors, and no trace of the old tattoo. Hubby even saw several women point out my tattoo to their guy while out shopping saying they liked it. Everything about the whole experience (receptionist aside) was fabulous! I'd recommend Andy (I believe he's one of the newer artists there) to anyone wanting a tattoo, especially someone who's never had one and is afraid of the pain. He did great! Will plan on bringing relatives there when we return next year! Thank you, Andy!
