I recently decided to get my first ever tattoo (Im over 40) after I lost a family member, and literaly, after running out of a few of the local shops, I asked a friend who recomended Magnetic Needle Tatto. He asked me to check the shop's Facebook page to see if it was what in tune with what I was looking for. Since I wanted a very special tattoo in memory of someone who was my soul, I wasnt just looking for any tatto artist. JP's talents were so impresive to me that I decided to make the hour and a half drive to the shop and see if he was as good as his page reflected. He is that and more. The locale is very clean and private, and has a great relaxing spa like atmosphere. Dealing with JP was very easy to do, the man is very talented and profesional, and is quick to listen and put YOUR thoughts in to art. Something I didnt get at other shops, who just wanted to press you into what they liked. If you are looking to pick something from a wall this is not your place. Every tattoo JP makes is unique to you, and will not be duplicated. Quality and cfaftsmanship is off the hook. The decision to go with JP was easy, and the long drives have been worth every second. JP began creating the most magnificent religious full sleeve as a tribute, in memory of my lost one, completely blowing my expectations out of the water. I will forever be gretaful to JP for putting his heart and soul into the work he has done for me. Friends who are into tattoos tell me mine are some of the best tattoos they have ever seen, and even my priest was impressed and welcomed it (Do I need to say more?). Check his Facebook and Instagram to see his talents for yourself, and check out pictures of my religious full sleeve he has posted there (still in progress). Too bad we can only give five stars, I would give JP, his staff and the shop a huge twenty!!!
I was referred to Magnetic needle by my friend. I was so impressed by the atmosphere and the excellent cutomer service, I decided to stay and get work done. The shop is new, VERY clean, modern and in a safe strip with parking. JP is the owner/Artist, unlike most of the arrogant tattoo artist who sometime either make fun of your ideas, blow them off or not friendly.....JP is very friendly, down to earth, patiently explains all of your concerns. Him and his staff immediately acknowledges you the moment you walk in! I gave him a spider web drawing/idea and he worked wonders on it! He is very gentle and I was impressed by his tattooing skills. I've dealt with many tattoo artist who dig so deep in your skin and rough, NOT the case with JP.My fiance is has never been into tats, but after going with me last night, he has now start considering one, LOL. I could be here all day giving thumbs up....The point is, I highly recommend this place. I found my new tattoo artist for me and my friends. The 45 min drive was worth it!! Oh yeah and the prices are affordable, at least to me. I pay for quality!!!! But if you are looking for a quick trashy hook up, with poor quality...then this place is not for you, LOL
Went in to have a tattoo done, the shop was clean, and the staff friendly. The artists are brutally honest about their work which was something I wasn't quite accustomed to. When asking about placements, which would work where, they were honest about how or why it would or wouldn't work. Same as for size and details of the piece requested. I have had several done elsewhere and could appreciate their honesty. It's their work they are leaving eternally and they want it to look good and for a long time just like you do. Great work by Repo. I will definitely be back!
Found Magnetic Needle on YP after going to a different parlor with a three hour wait. Soooo glad it worked out. JP was great. It was my first tattoo and I was nervous. He put me at ease immediately. Shop is clean and up to date. I'm so thrilled with my tattoo....I'm already thinking about #2. My daughter also got one same day and husband is just waiting on getting his drawn up since its more involved. JP has serious talent too! We would highly recommend this establishment
Magnetic Needle is really nice. The place looks really good. JP is really awesome and professional. I couldn't be happier with this tattoo. I'll definitely be back for more! Everyone has been commenting that my new tat looks really good; even people that don't really seem that into tattoos.
I have had all of my piercing from here. They all healed well and have good placement. I plan on coming and getting two more piercings and a tattoo. I haven't got tattooed here but I have friends that have and that all look really good. I look for word to visiting this location again.
AMAZING! This shop is beautiful. Everyone there is very helpful and professional. It's a new shop but the people working there have tons of experience. You can play playstation while you wait and there are always new movies on. The tattoos speak for themselves. BEST IN TOWN BY FAR!!!
You have to check this guy out, he is an amazing artist. Very gentle hand. He did a cover up tattoo for me and you can barely see the old one. I'm going to recommend him to everybody that wants a tattoo and I will be back to get more work soon.
if i had to say one thing about this place i would say its the best place to get a tat. i came here to get my first tat and jp alfonso did an amazing free hand tat on my back. i wouldnt go anywear else to get my art work done.
This is one of the nicest tattoo shops I have ever seen. JP is an amazing artist and was a pleasure to work with. If you want a top quality, custom tattoo, then go to Magntic Needle Tattoo. He is the best in town!
