I spent years thinking and debating what kind of tattoo I wanted and came up with a tattoo in my head and I was stuck on this idea of this tattoo. I wanted this tattoo very much and there is no way or no one that could change my mind because I made up my mind and thought about it for years. I am a person that overthinks everything. I went to different tattoo shops all throughout San Antonio. I found almost everyone was rude and acted like I had no knowledge of tattoo or what I wanted; many others tried to talk me out of it, or gave me ideas to change it. I never got a quote because they never took the time to understand what I wanted. I went to Platinum tattoos in April of 2014, first off the shop is very clean and the lady at the front desk was very nice and talked to me about each Artist, lucky for me an Artist was filling in for someone at the Dezavala location and his name was “Picasso”. This artist sure lived up to the name and was very nice and talked to me about the tattoo and quoted me right on the spot. This artist drew an outline of my tattoo without having anything to reference to, just the idea of the tattoo I wanted. The tattoo took about 4 hours, he talked to me throughout the process, and making sure I was doing ok. When he was done my mind was blown, I could not believe that he tattooed this amazing piece of art work on my body. For years I could only imagine this tattoo on me, and the tattoo was better than I could have ever imagined, I could not thank him enough. If you’re looking for a shop and you have high expectations then go to Platinum Tattoo, you will not regret it!!!

This is in response to Mr. or Ms. Sweetz28, you have no idea of what you are talking about. I personally respect and admire all the hard work Aracely, Adrian, Shanice and Ruffo put into this tattoo shop. They are all REAL GINUWINE GOOD PEOPLE. Aracely was blessed with a creative, vulgar and beautiful mind and was blessed to be an American with that right to express what she wants to say on Facebook. Now you can say what you want as well, that is your right. But give credit where credit is due, how many people subscribe to her on Facebook? Is she not running a very well known tattoo shop on a THEE busiest street in the Southside? Just because you have a closed mind or are jealous of her and what she has, doesn’t mean you can go and leave such a disrespectful message about the business. Adrian and Ruffo’s tattoo work is known around town for how awesome it is, Shanice is a young prodigy at piercing and Aracely is doing an outstanding job on the net “REPPIN” the business and managing it as well. The tattoo shop is family orientated, clean, professional, fun and welcoming to anyone and everyone who comes in with a good attitude. I’ve got to know these people on a personal level and they are even more awesome than you would ever know. This is the only place I go to get all my tattoos and piercings done. So Sweetz28 you are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to mine. My opinion is, you are talking out of your rear end. Sincerely, Jonathan Reyes
So it's been 6yrs of GREAT customer service! My husband has been going here and we always get compliments for his art work. I love the colors he uses on people. Adrian has the experience that he can tell what would look good on you. (Of course it's up to you to decide what you leave with ultimately) The main reason I love this shop is when we first walked in we saw him wrap his arm and clean his station so thoroughly. You can never be to clean. We talked for a good while and decided to start my husbands sleeve. Of course something like this does take time hence why we are continuous and loyal clients. I think it's funny how people BASH this location just cause they have personal drama but as a client I can honestly say they are GREAT and SA's BEST!! Also Ruffo..I've seen him grow since his apprentice ship he great at what he does and his timing is so much better. I have yet to try the piercing but if they are under the management of Adrian I have no doubt that its up to par for cleanliness. Oh and not to say anything about the S.Side but I hardly go there and I only go when we need to get tattoo's from Adrian. HE"S A GREAT PERSON and the SHOP is WONDERFUL!!
