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!!
I had my tattoo done there totally on a whim while on a vacation with my husband and kids. I'd had a version of what I wanted in my mind for years, but I am no artist. I described my scene to Norm who turned it over to Matt. The piece that Matt came up with blew my mind. Never in a million years, could I put my description in such detail. The problem was that his art, ended up being quite a bit bigger than I had in mind. (Did I say that this was my FIRST tattoo?) I admit that I was not the easiest person to draw for! After a few re-dos (and, admittedly, cutting some of his cooler things out of the design for the sake of size and placement) it was the perfect size and perfect tattoo. Matt did an amazing job! I have wanted this tattoo for so long and cannot imagine that anyone else could have come up with something so perfect me. Being that this was my first tattoo, and I have no other experience with them, I have no clue if I charged appropriately- however, I'm thrilled with the work and would rather love something I may or may not have paid too much for than underpay for something that looks like crap. I will be going back.
