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!

Let me tell you about my first trip to Phoenix, I have been looking for quite some time for the perfect situation in which all things come together for the perfect Tattoo. Well run don't walk and visit Meg and Tony Klett at ""Love and Hate Tattoo;s on Mcdowell st in Phoenix Arizona. This group of ARTIST have really strived for and reached the level of proffesionalism most have only wished for, Meg has done a great job with the place and without a doubt having reeled in Tony Klett was a great move. Tony is as calm as the the weather and the scenery outside is only challenged by the art that he creates inside, My piece was traditional and absolutely stunning, He made me feel like you should feel when making a decision as big as this one is. The art you put on yourself should be something that you really really enjoy and the piece I have now is truly a piece of art. Go see Tony, Sorry gotta run, time for my next appointment with Mr Klett. Thank's Meg great job!!!!

Well, I can honestly say I am nothing short of thrilled with the job Danny did at Love Hate. I had a rather large poorly done tattoo done about 12 years ago. I wanted to cover it up with a sleeve but was very concerned with the size of my existing tattoo whether or not it would be possible and still look good. Wow, it is now about half way through and I still can not believe how well it was hidden in all the new work! What an artist! Thanks again, can not wait to finish this piece! Worth your time to check them out... glad I did and will continue to have him work on some new ideas for other tatt's.

The entire staff at Love and Hate are very professional. Every artist is very talented. I had my work done by Tony Klett. Not only is he artistic and creative, but he makes you feel comfortable with the design and process. His aftercare advice is the best I've ever had!! It's the only way I heal my tattoos now. Definitely go to this shop for any tattoo or piercing!
I loved Love and Hate tattoo! Vince was great! He was friendly, funny and does excellent work! He took my idea and made it better than what I thought! Needless to say, my tattoo is beautiful and I get a lot of compliments. My one complaint is the woman who works there is a little crazy and had sum drama at the work place... not cool but other than that, great expierence!
i was referred to MEG at LOVE & HATE tattoo by friends... after i researched her on line i was impressed with her clean crisp color tattoos...i found the shop to be a clean, friendly, and asthetically pleasing atmosphere... when i spoke with meg about my tattoo, she listened and offered ideas and in the end i ended up with a far better tattoo than i ever thought was possible... she was extemely professional, kind, curtious, accomidating and funny... as was the entire shop. it really felt like a family... you can tell everyne there loves what they do and where and who they work with.... they truly emphasized wanting the best tattoo to leave the shop, wether it was tradional or portrait,or done by this artist or that artist... all the astists and workers had no problem letting us know who would do the best version of the style of tattoo we wanted... the shop has a great "old-timey" feel to it, and is covered in original paintings and "flash" as well as an extensive library of books for ideas...and as i looked around, i noticed the awards throughout meg's room as well as the shop, and learned that every tattoo artist there is award winning.... bottom line.. i had a great experiance and an amazing tattoo and will be going back for more... i would reccomend anyone to this shop... i really felt comfortable there and with all the employees..... thanks again for the great tattoo meg!!! see u soon... mike d.

I am mainly writing this review to emphasize my positive experience with artist Tony Klett at this shop. He has designed and tattooed two pieces for me, and I am highly pleased with the results. While his portfolio (accessible through his website) reflects a more traditional style of tattoo design - neo-traditional if you will - with bold lines and colors, I can speak from experience that he is also skilled in designing a tattoo in any style you might prefer. Experts agree: I've noticed at least a few convention awards on his wall. I have recommended him to a number of friends, and I am sure you would be eager to do the same after any interaction with him. If it's your first tattoo he will certainly put you at ease, and it you're a tattoo veteran add a TEK original to your collection.
Finally, I agree with the highly positive reviews of the shop. It is very clean, the staff has always been very professional, friendly, and skilled (in contrast to the one negative review, stating to be wary of which artist you choose). The wall decor and a television that plays a constant rotation of movies will entertain any friend you might bring along with you for moral support. Its got a great location in Phoenix, with a personal parking lot.
All in all, I can say nothing but good things about the shop and Tony.
