I visited several studios in town, with an idea of exactly what I wanted for my tattoo. Most of them didn't want to listen or even give me direction. They all said it just wasn't possible, and couldn't be done. Felt like no one wanted the challenge or do the work needed to create my art. When I walked in and talked to Rob, he listened to what I had to say, to what I wanted. He jumped right into the design work shortly after meeting with me. After a few days, we met, and he had this amazing drawing for me. Even more than what I had expected. He took the time to listen to what I wanted on my body, and how I wanted it done. If he hit a bump in the road he called and talked to me about the issue and explained why we needed to change this or that. He was exceptional!! When we finally sat down and laid the design out on my arm, chest, and back it was even more than I could have ever expected. I was amazed at what he had taken from my description, and turned into a tattoo. His talent is amazing and his passion for what he does is even better. I would highly suggest a visit to see him, and let him design and work for you.
I planned on this to be my last tattoo. It will not be after the wonderful work I received from Heather. I didn't even know I could get a tattoo this good at my age. ( I am 44) I thought only people in tattoo magazines got work this beautiful. The tattoo was custom made for me by Heather after meeting and getting a design together. It was important to be customized because this tattoo is for a very lived friend who passed. I am still in awe of the beauty of my work. I also must mention that I have been a nurse for over 20 years and Heather was so meticulous about proper technique. She was very attentive to remaining clean throughout the whole process. I have never seen anything like it outside the hospital. Needless to say anymore except I will be back for another and pass the word around. Oh,I also must mention that we had great conversations and just felt like I've known the girls working there for years. It was just great!
Awesome Tat, look no further than Aacross the Skin ★★★★☆ I contact the staff at Aacross the Skin in advance to let them know what I was looking to have tattooed and who there could do it. Having had a bad experience at another tattoo parlor, I wasn't interested in someone who 'will probably be the best' to do what I requested. Cassandra assured me Brandon was the guy I needed. Sure enough when I came in on the day, I brought several pictures to give Brandon some ideas of what I was looking for. The went to work drawing up a unique piece of art. I can't say enough great things about the tattoo itself, how at ease the staff made me, how clean the office was. Hell he stopped the clock when he needed to take a break so I didn't get charged for time when I wasn't in his chair. I will only have Brandon tattoo me from now own. I am honored to proudly display his work to the world.
Patrick Flynn has been one of my artists since he worked in Murfreesboro, TN and I've remained close friends with him since moving and have even traveled to him to let him do my work. He is without a doubt one of the best artists out there. He takes time and pays close attention to detail. He cuts up and will try his best to make you enjoy your time while he's tattooing and working on you and for you. He's finished everything he's ever done on me in one session and they've been big pieces and for the work he does, it is pricey but that's what happens when you go to someone who knows what they're doing. Ive never had any issues with the guy and neither have any of the four friends of mine that he has done artwork on. Plan on going back to see him whenever I get downtime from work. Fantastic artist.
Though I have had many tattoos and piercings, I don't think I've ever worked with a practitioner as professional as Derek. I came into Forever Tattoo after having my nostril pierced at another establishment, and was very specific with Derek about my placement and my expectations for my face. Though I was rushing in and out, Derek seemed as if he would've spent as much time as I wanted educating me on the material, the method, and the angle of piercing my nose exactly as I wanted. When all was said and done, it looked exactly as I wanted, and all of my worries about positioning were gone. It healed quickly, and I will forever refer all of my piercing business to Derek.
Aacross the Skin is a wonderful tattoo studio. As a concerned mother I visited a number of shops in Asheville and it's surrounding areas. AAcross the skin was by far the nicest, most professional, and most of all sterile. Not to say the others were dirty, not all of them atleast but just the smell of the studio itself smells clean. I asked a million questions the girls working there and they not once made me feel like I was a bother. Infact they took me on a tour of the sterilizing procedure and were just so sweet and nice about any questions I had. Honestly I would truely recommend these outstanding folks to any mother or friend I know.
There are no words for me to express how grateful I am with travis helping me figure out the piece i needed (when i walked in there having no clue) and for him having the patience to get it on me. It is exactly what i needed and is so gorgeous that i'm just still smiling! Great atmosphere, great employees and super great prices combined with really amazing artwork, so if you would like to get a tattoo done by some honest to goodness really good people, choose these guys and you won't regret it
I was looking for a tattoo shop and as usual, looked online at the reviews and this was the highest rated one I found. So based on these, I decided to try this one and I'm glad I did. The shop is very clean. Brandon did an excellent job on my tattoo, it came out better than i thought it would. The price was very reasonable, he even knocked some off the price after he drew up my tattoo. This is my second tattoo, I've had them both done in Asheville and I wish I would have gone here instead of where I got my first one done. I will be going back to have Brandon fix my first tattoo and also to do my next one.
Been looking all day for an excellent place to get my tattoo done at and I so happened to walk into the BEST shop in Asheville! Brandon did an outstanding job on my realistic roses on my shoulder/arm. Everyone was really nice and you really get a good vibe from the place. Good consulting and great prices. I felt at ease the whole 3 1/2 hours sitting in the chair having great conversations with everyone. I will be going back to Brandon (or anyone their for that matter) for all my future tattoo. Great shop, Great people, one AWESOME time and experience. I highly recommend this place to everyone.
Amazing shop,amazing work! Jenn and heather are so awesome and cool to be around. We had great conversations and work. My ear projects turned out so precise. I had a triple helix and industrial. The other ear has a conch,anti tragus and a daith. I had a consult with heather too about starting my leg sleeve. I can't wait. I have a few tattoos for her now and can't wait to cover my body. Love you girls! Oh,and my husband is next in line!
