My son turned 18 and we went to Tattoos By Lou for his first tattoo. My husband and I do not have tattoos and have never visited a Tattoo Shop. Needless to say, our experience was fantastic. The atmosphere is extremely friendly, warm and very artistic. The staff was extremely helpful, informative and with lots of personality! We were recommended to see Kiki who specializes in portraits. He was phenomenal. He is truly an artist and was great with our son. He discussed ahead of time what he could do and was very patient and bonded well with our son. The result was just amazing - just PERFECT!!! My husband is heading to see Kiki in two weeks to get the same tattoo. I highly recommend KIKI and Tattoos by Lou - you will not be disappointed!
