OK- So I wanted to get a new tattoo and I knew what I wanted...but who to trust!! I turned to my BFF - she has several tattoos...asked her who to go to and she recommended this guy Don at "a shop". I so trust her opinion of people like you would never believe! so I made my appointment with Don- went in and instantly liked him... he is a very professional artist- I gave him the idea that I had for my next tattoo and he ran with it!! I now have a great piece of work on my body that not only states what I wanted to but also gets alot of compliments and starts alot of conversations!! I was so excited to hear that he was opening his own studio- My husband was itching to get a new tattoo so we decided to check it out...the thing is my old man is very picky and stubborn so this was a task...he likes custom work...who doesn't...right!!! Well we went in one day and he and Don clicked immediatley!! he walked out about 5 hours later with a kicka** new tattoo and so did I !! I now have 5 pieces of work(1 a cover-up-totally rocks) from Don and my husband has basically given him artistic freedom over his body! (working on sleeves and next is the back) Not only do we have an artist/client relationship with Don we have formed a friendship with him. The studio is a very classy,comfortable and clean place to go to get your first tattoo-cover up and old one or even just add to the ones you already have! When you walk into Renaissance you feel like you are wanted there not just another appointment-hurry up and get out, Don and Kenny both are very passionate about what they do and it shows not only in their art but also in the studio...think of it like this- if you want a hair cut you go to a barber SHOP...if you want style you go to a STUDIO...the only place that I will ever go is Renaissance- I tell everyone that is interested in tattoos to stop by and check them out...you will so see what I am ranting about!!
