I moved to Virginia within the last year and decided to get another tattoo. I started like many others would and searched the internet. I read reviews after reviews and looked at countless portfolios. I narrowed it down to a few places and then I asked a fried where he went and he mentioned Storyteller Tattoo. They happened to be on my shortlist so I decided to make an appointment. When I first walked in, the place was clean and professionally ran. Everyone was courteous and I truly felt like a customer and not an annoyance.
Jay was my artist and not only humorous, but he is a great tattoo artist. While I was there several others received tattoos and all seemed like quality work. The most amazing part of the experience was the level of integrity that I saw from the staff. The owner, Tim, leads by example when a under 18 year old came in with her parent. She wanted a tattoo on her wrist and Tim refused to do it, stating that is something that can follow you. He explained that you might as well get a full sleeve since you cannot hide a wrist tattoo. Not having weighed all the options, the teen was grateful. Tim also carried the same level of integrity with piercings.
If you’re not sure on what you want, I suggest you visit them and have a discussion. They are very insightful and courteous. I would highly recommend them to all.
