My best friend and I decided to get matching tattoos to memorialize our love for Harry Potter the night of the last movie. Because this would be both of our first tattoos, we decided to do some heavy research. Her uncle highly recommended Jester's Court, which was the first place we looked into. Most of the reviews made us more than a little skeptical, but we decided to go visit the place regardless and check it out for ourselves. From the moment we walked in, we received great service. As walk-ins, they took down our info and agreed to call us as soon as there was an opening. We only had to kill time for about an hour (which is EXTREMELY easy to do in the south side) and when we came back they were ready to take us. Michael Patrick did my tattoo exactly how I hoped it would be... no, in fact it ended up being better than I could have imagined. He was funny & conversational the whole time & I cannot understand how he could have received poor reviews from anyone else. I was really nervous, but he managed to make the whole experience fun & enjoyable and most importantly, I feel like this new, permanent part of my body was done perfectly and precisely to my wishes. From sanitation standards (everything was new and unwrapped in front of us) to the atmosphere to the artist, everything about Jester's Court was AWESOME!
