Upon entering Self Inflicted Studios, you'll find yourself not only in a piercing and tattoo shop, but an art gallery. What really impresses me about this studio is that each tattoo and piercing artist there is multifaceted, having talents in painting, sculpting and more. This studio is very professional, clean and the staff is friendly. I appreciated their welcoming attitude...some other shops in the area are very 'smug' but that is not the case at Self Inflicted. I walked in with my tattoo design in mind, and Dustin N. was very happy to give me some advice before going under the needle. My artwork was simple geometric shapes, and was completed very quickly and with precision. I would absolutely recommend this studio to anyone wanting a tattoo or piercing. Thank you for sharing your artistic talents!

I have wanted a tattoo for years but never trusted anyone to do what I wanted. I had created my own design and it was important that what I had created was what ended up on my body. I ended up at SIS through the advice of a friend, and was not disappointed. The friend recommended Ian, and he was fantastic: friendly, professional, and communicative as to what I wanted and how it would translate to a tattoo. After a few modifications, I have the tattoo I had envisioned and I love it! The shop is clean and beautifully decorated in art done by the employees. It did not feel "seedy" or intimidating at all, and is in a nice part of town. Price was reasonable as well. If I ever decide to have any other ink done, I will be coming back, and asking for Ian Arseneau!
I got a simple tattoo of a snowflake 3 years ago. Was drug to Allstar on my lunch break by a friend who was tired of hearing me bellyache about wanting a tattoo. Dustin drew one up and was able to tattoo me within the hour.! It's true what they say... once you have one tatt, you want more!!! I was ready for #2 a week later... and again, I just got re-inspired b/c I ran into a very cute guy who had one done there. Said it took up half of his back and took 10 hours to complete! It's supposed to be in their profile ... can't wait to go in and see it... and while I'm there, I may as well get my 2nd one. It'll be a more intricate snowflake on top of my foot!
