Before you judge any artist or any shop based on a review on the internet, please use this perspective... there are many types of people out there that either can't stand ppl that are doing good with their lives, or are just mean, jealous ppl. Before you decide to not get work here, or any other tattoo studio for that matter, please just ask to see the artists' portfolio and then make your judgement. Also, when you see a bad review, just click the link that asks you to see other reviews left by that person. if there is only one review and it is slandering, or negative, then it is someone trying to bring a hard working business person down.This works both ways too, if the reviewer has only 1 review then it may also be the business leaving their own review! HOW GROSSE!! Also, check out dates, most likely dumb business owners will get a wild hair up their A$$ and go review crazy leavin tons of awesome reviews all at once!! LOL!..Anyways, I was really pissed when I realized there were a couple of negative reviews left for my artists' shop! My artist/friend is Drama, and though he is fairly new, he is an awesome, true artist. He can and will paint, photo, draw or sculpt for you, as well as tattoo. I've gotten 3 tattoos from him since he started a year and a half ago, and about 3 canvases before then. He also hand wrote my sister's wedding invitations. (all around TRUE artist). About 5 months ago, his tattooing just jumped to such a great level almost over night. He has tattooed about 6 of my buddies, and no one, i mean NO ONE has left unhappy. He is a true customization artist, unlike a lot of those cookie cutter tattooers out there. Drama is my friend, so id look at his portfolio first. I want to name names SOOOO bad, I have seen first hand, an ex best friend try to ruin his life by making up lies and stretching truths, and the company he worked for before that hated his standing up to them, so they tried so hard to slander him even though i stood by the phone that first week after he quit, listening to L*z, beg him to come back.This guy deserves his chance at life, esp. being that he's a recovering addict, and i know him well enough to know he doesnt mind me saying that. Thank you and i hope this helps you!
I wanted to let everyone know about the amazing talent at this tattoo shop. I have been getting tattoos with Jimmy for 4 years. I refuse to go anywhere else because of how amazing my tattoos look and they always turn out better than I hoped. He is not afraid of color, but can also do black and white as well. I have had numerous friends over the years who had atrocious tattoo work done other places. I always tell them that Jimmy can fix it, and they turn out amazing! I had a friend with pretty much a black blob called a butterfly that he covered and turned into an amazing flower and butterfly full of color and life. I don't know why other people are on here saying they don't do a great job. They have always been friendly to their customers and have great prices. They make you feel like family when you are there. I will never go any where else and I will continue to refer all of my friends to him. And by the way..I got a tattoo 4 years ago, and by following his directions (and with his great choices of ink) my tattoo still looks like I got it done yesterday. Colors are still fresh and bright! I also do not have just flowers. I have an anchor, 2 koi, a Japanese mural on my back with a Geisha. He can do more than just flowers and bugs people.
My homeboy Drama at Black Ankor told me that if I dug my ink to throw him a good review so I am. Boy's been only tattin for like 4 months and he's flyin out the gate. You can tell he's got a way to go, but that prolly comes from the cats that he aprentised for. He said he spent a year their and the only guy that tought him anything was gone just as he picked up a gun. So it makes since to me. But homeboy picked up a fat writin' style. He put 4 names on my forarm and that junks ill. He freehanded it right in front of me then tatted it. Yo Drama, only bad thing I gots to say is you needs to speed it up, junks painful. But I now can see why takin yo time is worth it. Thanks homeboy. Ill be back for that bring 3 friends get a $50 tat for free deal you runnin', thats legit. PEACE---Dro
