Well, here I sit with a new tattoo on my arm saying to myself ""well I really went and did it this time!"". You see, I am 70 years old and have never had a tattoo but with the recent death of my beloved brother, I wanted something to memorialize him.
I live in Vancouver, Washington and visit my favorite city once or twice every year. Before I left, I did a search for tattoo artists and came across Black and Blue. I thought their website was very nicely done and helpful so I called. Jaime answered the the phone. He asked me several questions to find out what I had in mind and within a few minutes he conceptualized a very clever one off tattoo for me.
When I arrived at the tattoo shop on Guerrero, Jaime cordially invited me in and showed me his drawing off my new tattoo and then we tweaked it to perfection. Jaime was very polite and well mannered, a good conversationalist and a superb tattoo artist.
The atmosphere of the place was very relaxed and professional. Jaime spent three hours working with me and in the end he created a true masterpiece that I can wear with pride and dignity.
I would not hesitate to recommend Jaime. With his gracious manner and marvelous talent, you won't be disappointed. The whole experience exceeded my expectations.
