4421 Magazine St, New Orleans, LA 70115
There are quite a few tattoo shops on Magazine Street, but this one is by far, the best I've seen. The open and airy space makes getting tattooed feel like the art that it is, instead of a clinical procedure in a sectioned off room like some shops. The space is aesthetically pleasing, for sure, and it's exceptionally clean.
The artists here are so lovely. I've been getting tattooed by Nixxin for the past year. He is a master of his craft. I met him via recommendation of a friend and just wanted a small quickie tattoo, but as we got to talking, I felt inspired to plan something bigger, including a coverup. I now have a half sleeve done by him. I love the delicate nature of his work. For such a big hard bear of a guy, he sure tattoos beautiful flowers and filigree patterns. Ladies, if you want a beautiful, intricate tattoo, he's your man.
I've only ever had great experiences at this shop, and I recommend it every time someone asks me about a tattoo shop in NoLa. Stop in and you'll see why.
