I went here for every single tattoo I have. Great experience till recently. Jrew told me he would touch up my tattoo for free within a year, NEVER got a hold of him. Never responded to me or even called me back. I also was supposed to get a piercing here recently, I showed up at the time of my appointment and was waiting outside for HALF AN HOUR and no one even showed up.... so done with this place. I really liked this place too when I was coming here :/ horrible customer service..
I got my 1st tattoo here a couple days ago, james stayed late made me feel comfortable explained all to me. It was a perfect experience for me. I would highly recommend his knowledge and shop.
I started out my tat history in in Mt. Vernon in the 80's - Big Al and Company were "Who" you went to. I have been through a couple of different states but also have had a lot of work done by many in this area. Ken blows these local artists away - IN EVERY WAY! He's such an awesome artist - if he has an idea, trust him, because he always So right on! Ken listens to you - you will get what you want - I have never regretted trusting his judgement. Ken has a soft touch but packs a big punch. His lines are never janked up (he does writing amazingly perfect). He recently did a Scooby Doo for me and there is not one scratch of a line out of place! Ken's free hand artistry is his best trait...He can truly draw! He's got a cool store on Central Ave. and his staff are really nice. I have overheard Dre (sp) show a lot of integrity during a consult, which you don't always see in this business. Ken just added a full time piercer - YAY! Ken's prices are amazing - He will give you twice the time and tattoo and he rivals these overpriced parlors! Check him out, he is one of the best in the area! (30+ tattoos and I am working on my 5th with Ken!)
Very Friendly, Professional, Very Sanitary, The Artists do a "Exquisite job", you will be more than pleased. I Highly recommend Tom Spaulding Tattoo studio if your interested in getting your first tattooo or to add to your collection!!!!
