I had a great experience at Lucky Van's Tattoo. This tattoo shop is different than most. The ambiance of this place is pleasant and very customer oriented. I was greeted once I walked in the door. I wasn't pressured to decide on what I wanted to get done. I was given all the time I needed. The owner Van helped me. He's an extraordinary artist. I knew from the work I've seen posted on their website that I was in good hands. Van free handed my design and did a wonderful job. I'm very happy with the results. I highly recommend this place for tattoos. I'm sure I'll be back for more. People say that tattoos are addicting.
I've been getting tattooed by Victor Trujillo for over 2 years and although he's been at Cicatrix for only 6 months, I have gotten to know the artists at the shop and they are all amazing talented artist who will go out of there way to make as comfortable as possible in a completly clean environment. As for Victor Trujillo, i've chose him as my tattoo artist because I love his passion for tattooing and he will not quit until he and client are satisfied. Having the same tattoo artist for over 2 years nonstop says something too.
I came here to get my tattoo. This shop is awesome. Van helped me and he's a very talented artist. If you want your tattoo to come out perfect, he's the man to see. Van drew my design perfectly. The shop is in a great location. There wasn't any traffic and lots of parking. This shop is not in the scary part of the Mission at all. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This place is very clean and well maintained so you don't have to worry. I highly recommend this shop. I will be back again for sure.
