I have had work done by Ben Alvarez. He did a coverup piece for me a couple of years ago and I am very pleased with it. It was a difficult piece to cover but he definatey made it work without going all tribal. Ben and his staff are very personable and the shop is very clean.
I have had a few tattoos done (9) and I have had them done in other city's. This is the BEST tattoo place I have ever been to. Ben Alvarez is a TRUE artist, he is also VERY professional. He owns this shop, and it is very friendly. He does the most amazing work in ALL of Kansas City, in the whole Mid West. The art is perfect and I loved his attitude and his charm. I am wearing a Masterpiece!!! His buddy Mike who works there also is wicked cool. He made me a pin-up girl painting that hangs in my living room, and I love it. He is a Master as well. Call in advance to get in with Ben, he is booked 6 months in advance, that right there should tell you something!!! One happy customer Terri Shelton!
