Texas Body Art has been doing my families tats for years. Used Justin Inkk for the first time tonight for my daughters first Tattoo. He was easily to get her comfortable and to removed all the fear that is associated with something new. A+++ artist that I would 100% recommend.
Thanks for the high quality service.

My son passed away in a motorcycle accident 2 years ago. I gave his best friend on of his riding gloves. This past week he went and had the glove tattooed on hius right shoulder because my son was his ""right hand man"". When I saw the tattoo it brought me to tears.
I am not sure who did the piece, but I can say that it was awesome. The detail and effort that the artist did was great.
I would definetly recommend Texas Body Art for any art work you may desire to get.

I just wanted to say that I have been here twice and each time that I have came here I have only gotten the best out of
each artist that I have seen. Jason Coquel did my cover up on my chest piece and he did a amazing job. He is very very good with color and his style is incredible you can tell that this is his passion.
My second time that I went I got to get my first and my most fav tattoo done by the wonderful Johnny Jackson, he is the owner of the shop...he did a amazing piece on my right upper thigh in about 5 hours with breaks. He was very much into his work , but at the same time he was also very much making sure that I was okay and if we needed a break here or there. The best customer care a person can ask for.
This place is clean, there is no fake artist here they are all award winning and I am looking forward to coming back. The atmosphere there welcomes you and the way the place is decorated is amazing!! If you are looking to get a tattoo this place is it!! There is no other place that will match this place in my opinion and I have been to other tattoo shops I just wish I knew about this place before hand but I was young. I will never go back the only place I will get my tattoos at for now on is from Texas Body Arts!
If you want real art, real commitment, and people who actually know what there doing come here!!

I visited a friend in Houston and thought this would be a great opportunity to find a shop and start on that half-sleeve I always wanted.
Looked them up online and the drove over too make an appointment. Thought it was funny and coincidental that the first person I talk to in the shop( David Gray), was the best in the the style I wanted ( Black & Gray). I gave him my ideas, visions and pictures from my usb-stick and we talked about the tattoo and how it should be. When I came back and saw the sketch I had no doubt in my mind that this was what I wanted.
Me and David got along great and time went by fast. After a few hours with tattooing and short breaks we ordered pizza with some of the other guys at the shop. Halfway through the session we both agreed that we would do the whole sleeve in one session. It took 13 hours of tattooing and it was totally worth the pain. After we got done I got the first draft of the sketch as a gift,signed by David Gray.
The environment there was good and I felt comfortable and relaxed even though this was my first tattoo and a rather large tattoo at that. I recommend this shop to the fullest and I will definitely be back to get the rest of my sleeve done!
Special thanks to David Gray for his art.

All I can say is...this place is horrible, the worst! My experiences there were not pleasant at all. The only pro about this place is the art work, that's it! The service is just terrible, they leave you waiting forever or don't even attend you. I had to go find someone to help me out. (Yes, even when there is nobody in the store..they do this!) & not to mention most of the staff are complete jerks! The only friendly person in the place is the guy that does piercings (I believe his name is...Jason?), that's it. Basically, customer service is the pits in this place. A monkey gives better customer service, what does that tell you? It sucks! The worst, however, is trying to set up an appointment (they have this dumb rule where ONLY the artist who did your tattoo(s), can work on it). Basically, the faith of your tattoo is in the hands of the artist. Well, I was not about to let that happen..After many times of trying to get in contact with my guy who was a complete sleazeball (Jorge) & could never manage to get through, I gave up and found myself a way better tattoo artist who was able to fix me up & not to mention, made my tattoo sparkle (in another tattoo shop, mind you). There are lots of better places to go to than this joint for tattoos, piercings, etc. Don't bother, you'll be dissapointed. Worst customer service ever! And this place won awards!? HA! puh-leez, they must've put on one great act, because they suck! I will never come back to this place again! Thanks for nothing Texas Body Art!!!

What can i say ?.I was referred to jason by my friend and I'm glad I listened to her! He fixed my tattoo on my left arm he made it more colorful prettier,etc. We started talking about how I wanted a sleeve I basicly told him what I wanted and he just started saying some badass ideas!!! He came up with the colors and placement I trust him and outcome was BEAUTIFULLLLL,BADASS,AWESOME,SPEECHLESS,ETC. Jason = a badass artist for sure!!!
Btw he always makes time even on his day off ! That's some dedication!!!
Can't wait to get a lot more!
I found this company while at a tattoo convention in San Antonio. I couldn?t have been more happy with the quality of work and professionalism each artist displayed. The artists (as well as everyone else behind the booths) were friendly and very welcoming, and the attention to detail they display in their work proves they are true masters of their craft. I got a tattoo from David Grey while at the convention and I will gladly make the drive from Baytown to continue adding to this piece. David is a great artist, I do not have any tats from any of the others but their portfolios were very good, that with their professional manners I would feel comfortable getting inked by any of the artists i spoke with. I highly recommend this shop to anyone looking for quality and professionalism. When it comes to getting a tattoo you get what you pay for and trust me I?ve gotten some pretty bad ones over the years, but the feeling of leaving that chair extremely pleased and happy with the end result is priceless.
Thank you David Grey, for your attention to detail and ability to capture it on such a small scale.
I highly recommend TBA. I have work by Johnny ""Inkaholik"" Jackson and AJ. All pieces are beautiful, custom works of art. My bf has a sleeve being done by Jorge Gwooki that is absolutely stunning. Again a custom piece. All artists are very professional and do everything they can to make you comfortable during the tattoo process. Being a chick, this is important to me ;) . I have been a customer of TBA for 5yrs and will never go to another shop. TBA has impeccable artists that can satisfy any craving of art you may desire to put on your body.
The shop is awesome with a friendly and very helpful staff. The shop is super clean!!! Again another important factor when choosing a tattoo parlor.
Johnny has been known to tattoo famous people and professional athletes in his shop. So stop by.... who knows who you might run into at TBA!!!
Thanks AJ & Johnny!!!! I love my art!!!
