Poor service, unprofessional, and inexperienced. Did not take the time to stencil the image. Used the color grey to shade. Used one needle to shade. Used one needle to thicken an outline. DID NOT USE VASELINE.
I showed one of the associates the tattoo we wanted and she didn't take time to trace it line by line. It definitely didn't match the image I gave her, but I was told that it was just for the outline and that it would not look like that. I was told Rachel would be tattooing us and wanted to check out her portfolio beforehand. She didn't have a hard copy, but she did have an Instagram. I didn't see any american traditional tattoos, so I decided to go with Todd who seemed to have a lot of experience in tattooing in that style. He stenciled the tattoo and placed it on my arm and told me I would have to wait 10 minutes for it to dry. 10 minutes later, he starts to tattoo me using NO VASELINE. He told me he didn't use vaseline because using too much vaseline will make the ink go away. Todd's gloves were completely dry. When I looked over to actually see the tattoo, the outline was way too thin. I asked him if he was going to thicken. He used the same needle to go over the first outline twice and to start shading. I told him to stop at that point because I felt that he didn't know what he was doing. Rachel was the only other artist available so I asked if she could finish it. I understand that this is a big no no in the tattoo world but at that point I just wanted what I paid for. Rachel was flexible and kind enough to finish it but she had also made a mistake by mixing the color grey to use for shading. At first I thought she was using white to give it some highlights like my other ones but she wasn't. It was a very disappointing experience overall. I gave them one star for pricing but that's it. I was really upset to have to pay for something I did not ask for. It literally looks like a rock on my arm and nothing like a heart.
