Prick Tattoos has been around for a long time now, just moved locations. Mario is my Artist. Mario specializes in realistic\portraits. He does AMAZING WORK, ESPECIALLY SMALL DETAILED WORK , as well as an all well rounded artist. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO GET WORK DONE HERE. The shop is clean, and has a very chill atmosphere feel. His shop lobby has artwork from Local Artist, as well as the guys in the shop. Including some of Mario's drawings. Every one of the Artist here are really chill, and cool.
Do not get a tattoo from Mr. Sanchez's son Drake unless you would like to end up with an embarrassing mess. I was very disappointed that he son's age is used by his father to over shadow his talent. His skills or lack there of are understandable for his age but his father should pay much more attention to his work and implement a quality control process to ensure he fixes any mistakes his son makes. His hands are not steady enough to do straight lines and he resorts to making thicker lines to cover up squiggly ones. He does not know how to blend colors which has led to colors bleeding into others everywhere. Unless you want to spend your hard earned money getting your tattoo fixed, do not mess with this one!
Mario Sanchez tattood a miniature portrait of himself on my finger, it was amazing, detailed and extremely realistic. He is very light handed so the pain was tolerable to say the least. He is an experienced portrait artist and specializes in realistic as well. I am scheduled to be getting more work from him. All of his artists at his two shops are phenomenal, professional award winning artist and definitely worth the investment. If you havent been to the shops, I highly recommend it.....
Mario Sanchez and Rooster can only be described as geniuses. When you see the work they do, you will be amazed that appointments are only scheduled out a month or 2. Custom beautiful tattoos your thing? This shop can do ANYTHING. Literally, if you bring a picture in, they will put it on you and you will barely be able to tell the difference. Give them a general idea, and they will prepare a masterpiece specifically for you. No one else will have the piece. Or you could go to a random shop and pick #61 off the wall and have the same ink as the other thousand before you. Be unique, stand out, get some quality work done by these guys!
Prick Tattoos, by far the best tattoo parlor in San Antonio. I have been in the market for a tattoo for a few years now and have been to at least 7 different shops in the local area and none of those shops have caught my eyes like Prick. First of all, they have Award Winning Artist who create art with each stroke. They are very friendly and very professional individuals. Plenty of Pictures to look at, just in case you are undecided on which style is more suitable for you, the front shop as well as the individual tattoo rooms are very neat and clean. They disinfect the area constantly, and single service all of their equipment. I decided to go with Prick Tattoos artist Mario Sanchez and it was completely worth it! My first tattoo came out looking awesome. In fact I'm scheduled to go back and get a ? sleeve done soon. So if you are in the market for a tattoo just remember, Cheap Work Isn't Good and Good Work Isn't Cheap! So go check the guys up at Prick Tattoos and see for yourself.
