Diablo Ink Tattoos
2745 High Ridge Blvd, High Ridge, MO 63049
I have hundreds of dollars of work from Aaron.He made ugly embarrassing crap tattoos that I got from uneducated unprofessional "scratchers" into Awesome artwork that I'm proud to show off! I will never go to another shop and plan to get a piece from Cat as soon as I can! 5 stars all the way!
After much research and visiting multiple tattoo shops in Jefferson County and the St. Louis area, (I was willing to travel for a good tattoo. I figured it was well worth my extra time to find the right place) a couple of friends told me to check out Diablo Ink and as luck would have it I certainly saved the best for last when it came to the right shop! I originally came in to get a cover-up. Cat took the time to talk to me about it where other shops turned up their noses and acted like I wasn't worth their time! Well, remember that scene in Pretty woman when Julia Roberts comes back to the clothing store...
Shop assistant: Hello, can I help you?
Vivian: I was in here yesterday, you wouldn't wait on me.
Shop assistant: Oh.
Vivian: You people work on commission, right?
Shop assistant: Yeah.
Vivian: Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.
Well, Diablo Ink has a forever customer in me and my family! Not only did Cat do an AMAZING cover up, she helped me with a memorial tattoo for my son who passed away. Her sketch made me cry and the tattoo is beautiful!! I get stopped constantly with people asking to see my tattoos and they want to know where I got them done!! Cat has hand drawn all of my tattoos they are all original works of art! I have a large piece that extends across my chest my shoulder and upper arm. We are currently working on a large piece that extends from the top of my foot to my knee. Can't wait to start the next project!! I have also witnessed the amazing work that Aaron does as well. They are both true artists!
Diablo ink is a NO BS shop! Aaron and Cat will tell you the truth and they won't tattoo something that will look bad. They will help you to make the right decision and get what's going to look the best! Last but certainly not least, they are by far the cleanest shop I have ever set foot into! I highly recommend!!
I was lucky enough to receive my very first tattoo from the now owner of Diablo Ink, Aaron at the age of 18. I say lucky because let's face it, there are more scratchers in STL than great artists (huge difference between an artist and just anyone that can "do" tattoos by the way). I have always been not only highly pleased by the Work I've received but consistently blown away as my finished tattoos are far better than I would have imagined in my minds eye! Another point I'd like make is the professional realism, If want you want is not possible you will be told so and options given! No BS handed to you just to collect your cash. The shop has another amazing artist, Cat. I have not yet had the pleasure of receiving work from her but have watched her complete amazing art while in the shop and Her portfolio speaks for itself. The level of cleanliness and sanitation kept by the shop is of the absolute highest OSHA standard, this is evident as soon as you step through the door. Everyone at Diablo has always been very friendly to me and I have always felt very comfortable each time I've come by!
I have been to Aaron numerous time for my tattoos! He is an awesome artist! He has designed several tattoos for me and has also done a cover up for me! Love love loved it! My latest tattoo was done by Cat who is equally as awesome as Aaron. She too designed a foot tattoo! I totally love the work they do! Wouldn't go anywhere else!!!
I was a tattoo virgin and I was a walk in to Diablo Ink (Painstation back in 2005). I happened to get Cat. The quality and attention to detail was simply outstanding. I would recommend to anyone who wants an incredible tattoo. I have since moved to Chicago but I ONLY let Cat work on me and I drive back to Stl. to get any work done. These guys are simply the best out there.
I only go to Diablo Ink because they are the best in jeff county. I have tattoos from Arron from when he worked at Trader Bobbs over 17 years ago that are still vibrant and fantastic. Over the years I tried other places, some good and some bad. Then I heard Arron was back and have gone to him ever since. I tell everyone I know that wants tats to only go here.
I got a tattoo here in memory of my babies that died so it was a very important event. The female tattoo artist didn't want to put a border on the tat and did the simple tattoo HER way. She said to give it a few weeks and if I didn't like it, to come back and she would complete the tattoo as requested. However, when we returned, the lady became belligerent and said the border would not look good. I felt so upset after arguing with her and the other rude staff that we walked out. I have gotten tattoos around the country and this was by far the worst experience I have ever had. They should be ASHAMED!! I am telling everyone I know not to go there!
Well what can ya do, like we explain to everyone what will look great as a tattoo in your skin for say, 20 years, & what will not, plain and simple. After we put in our professional input & you still want to go forward with your terrible idea we will just reccomend you go somewhere else to avoid 'personally' being responsible in giving you a 20 year mistake. As far as being rude, no, we dont do that. Im sure if we were as rude as you say from your bogus posting we wouldnt stay as busy as we are. Good luck though, & thanks for the entertainment.

So I decided to get a new tattoo and after searching the local tattoo shops, I decided to go with Diablo Ink. First thing I noticed was a very clean environment with a hot rod style. I was immediately greeted by one of the artists who made me feel very comfortable. My ideas were kinda shaky so I discussed it with another artist and he took my ideas and created an incredible drawing that was exactly what I wanted. My tattoo is now healed and the placement is perfect and the colors are brighter than I've ever seen. I'd have to say it the best tattoo I have! I will definitely recommend Diablo Ink to everyone I know.

I was referred to Diablo by some friends who have all been tattooed there. It was the best tattoo experience I've had yet. I've been to many parlours in St Louis and the surrounding areas, and this was by far the best tattoo and most fun I've had. My tattoo healed in just a few days, with very bright colors. Thanks guys, you're the best!
