I had a tattoo retouched by Shannon back in May, 2009. Originally, I had made a phone call with them in 2007 after I had done some research to find out who was the best tattoo artist in Memphis. At that time I thought I could get an appointment right away, but was shocked when I was told that their next available appointment wouldn't be until six months later. Of course, I didn't want to wait that long, and so I asked them if they could recommend me a local tattoo shop to get my tattoo retouched. They generously gave me a couple names for future reference and they kept saying sorry that they really couldn't get me in. Yes, I was not patient, so the result was that I wasn't really pleased because I chose one of the other local shops to get my retouch job and the artist didn't really listen to what I wanted. In winter 2008 I decided to call Ramesses Shadow again, and of course same as the year before, I was told my appointment would be a wait of at least half a year. I decided to be patient this time. After all, a tattoo is gonna stay on my body for the rest of my life, I want to really like it and get it professionally done. Finally, I got my tattoo redone, and I am really really pleased and feel relief. Not only because of the skill of Shannon, but also how patient and caring he makes me feel even after when I called worried about my skin peeling, he took time to explain and give advice. Best tattoo artist shop in town, it deserves its reputation.

by Bobby 05/28/2011 When I look for an artist to put a permanent piece of artistic work on my skin, I take extreme care in looking for a reputable artist. I have found that the best information comes from people who have had many experiences,( good and bad), with many tattoo shops. Word of mouth and LOYALTY to a tattoo shop goes a long way when someone recommends a shop and artist. This is why I write this review telling each person who reads this review that the artist`s and body piercing expert at THE TATTOO SHOP in Memphis, Tn. are BY FAR the most experienced at their craft with MANY decades of experience! I will ALWAYS RECOMMEND MIKE FOR BODY-PIERCINGS AND MIQUEL FOR ALL COLOR, BLACK/GRAY, TRIBAL, PORTRAITS OR SPECIFIC CUSTOM ARTWORK! Miquel has a very unique ability to CREATE AND DESIGN ANY CUSTOM IMAGE FOR A CLIENT! THE TATTOO SHOP IS 100% CLEAN, 100% STERILE AND ALSO 100% GREAT ATTITUDES AND AN ATMOSPHERE FAR ABOVE THE OTHERS! I WOULD LIKE TO ALSO STATE THAT "I AM NOT" AN ARTIST OR PIERCER AT THE TATTOO SHOP, BUT A CONVERTED LOYAL CLIENT!!! GIVE MIKE AND MIQUEL A CALL AND YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!!!!
I couldn't have asked for a better experience! I'm usually not one for taking chances, especially not on a tattoo parlor with only one prior review, but when I was greeted by the woman at the front desk I instantly felt comfortable. She was extremely personable and hands down one of the nicest people around, the same goes for my artist, Daniel. He scripted my tattoo more beautifully than I had even envisioned and the tattoo process itself was quick and easy. I wanted the tattoo higher than the original placement and he quickly fixed it to my liking. Very clean and comfortable environment. I'm visiting Memphis from Georgia and I can honestly say The Skull x Rose Tattoo Collective would and will definitely be worth another trip to the city. Absolutely wonderful!!
