I recently got my first tattoo and after reading reviews and looking at portfolios I decided on Meg at Love and Hate Tattoo on McDowell rd in Phoenix. Her "tradional american" style and clean lines were exactly what i was looking for and after our consultation appointment I was excited to see what she would do with my ideas. Let me just say it was hands down a hundred times better than what I had originally thought it would be! Meg took my idea and amplified it into a beautiful work of art that I am proud to wear on my body for the rest of my life!! The shop is clean and has vintage "old school" vibe... Theres endless artwork and flash everywhere you look. The staff were great as well and made me feel welcomed, comfortable and at ease (being my first tattoo, I was a little nervous.. At first!! But quickly felt completely comfortable). Meg did an amazing job and I get compliments on my tattoo everywhere I go! I will definatly be going back for my next tattoo.Basically, my tattoo, artist, shop and the entire staff were really great and I recommend all my friends that want to get tattooed to go to Love and Hate! Thanks again Meg!
