All I knew was that I want to have a half sleeve tattoo with a koi fish and flowers. So I went price shopping in South Beach to find a tattoo shop and artist what I can trust and feel comfortable with. After I went already to a few other tattoo shops I walked into pirate tattoo. Jenny and Emerson were helping me out to get some more ideas for my design. We looked through some books and searched the internet together. The great part is, I didn't even had to make an appointment! I only had to wait 30 min while Jenny made my drawing and got ready for me. Now I got nervous :)... am scared if needles..... And before she even could start, I was a huge pain in the bud lol.. But Jenny was super patient and calmed me down.... When she did the first few lines I had to admit that it wasn't bad at all..... We took a little break so I can go and get some snack and we finished my tattoo the same day! The tattoo came out gorgeous! The colors are so bright! I LOVE my tattoo! Thank you so much! I will recommend this place to all my friends and family!
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!
I recently had a quarter life crisis (i turned 30) and so decided to get a tattoo. I had been to Pirate before to get my tragus pierced and then again to get another bit of my ear pierced and booked my tattoo. The place is really clean and the professional. The guy who does the piercings is really nice and makes you feel very at ease. The prices are pretty reasonable too. On Saturday i went to get my tattoo. The girl that did it was very patient and friendly. She drew a couple of designs for me until i was happy then he talked me through everything so i felt relaxed. After it was done she was full of praise for how i handled it which was very sweet. Overall, i would only ever go here to get any piercings/tattoos and totally recommend them :)
