Jay Miller is a high caliber professional tattoo artist, with the experience and technique to back that claim up. More importantly; he has a passion for his work and concern toward giving the customer the best of his ability to produce tattoo artwork that you will be excited to display on your body. I received my first tatto at age 61 of a large piece dragon in traditional Japanese style on the upper half of my arm which is phenomenal. It is not just a tattoo - it is a "work of art" that I could sense Jay was passionate about producing. I only wish it was warm all year around in Ohio so I could keep it displayed. Can't wait to start on the lower half of my arm to complete a full sleeve. By the way, you can trust the other artists and apprentices at Crucible Tattoo to give you the best experience available also. My contact with everyone there was enjoyable. A friend of mine goes to artist Jonah Dunbar there and he has some great ink too.
So, I found Crucible BECAUSE of their great YP reviews. I got spider bite lip piercings and a nostril ring. I knew absolutely nothing about piercings when I walked through the door (never had a tattoo either), and was a little nervous. Jack was my piercer and she was AWESOME! Very funny, nice, and totally professional. She knew exactly what she was doing and made me feel super comfortable - not to mention she did a great job! I love my piercings, and I've been thinking about getting more already!I lost my ball on my lip piercing while I was out volunteering the next day, so I went back to Crucible to get another one. I was slightly surprised they charged me an additional ten dollars for it, but the girl who put it on for me was very nice and also professional.Overall, I highly recommend Crucible if you're looking to get a facial piercing in the Kent area! Ask for Jack!
After my artist moved away, I went in search of a new artist and new shop. I stumbled into Crucible Tattoos because of their convenient hours being open late after I get off work and being open on Sundays as well. After being in the shop, I was directed to Jonah. Not many artists understand my style of giving my artists little guidance and constructive criticism, but he was and is very patient in order to create a unique and creative one of a kind piece. Out of the past 8 months I have received 3 tattoos from Jonah in which turned out absolutely beautiful. I absolutely love the atmosphere of the shop; all the employees are inviting and make you feel welcomed. I would recommend the shop to friends.
I found Crucible Tattoo on YP with a five star rating. I got my nose and ear pierced by Jack and she was awesome. Jack was very professional and she told me step by step of what she was going to do next and everything went smooth. I would highly recommend Crucible for any piercings. I really cant give a rating on tattoos because I didn't get one but I looked at their book's of tattoos and I would say they have awesome tattoo work but my favorite work I seen was done by Jay Miller.

I was refered by a friend to get a tattoo from Jonha Dunbar at Crucible. He was very professional and made me feel confortable even though I got my tattoo in a very insecure spot. The building itself was very neat and clean. Everyone on the staff was welcoming instantly, super friendly and very helpful. I will refer anyone and everyone to get a tattoo by Jonha. I will be going back for more very soon!
Called to get pricing on some piercings and made my appointment. When I arrived I was greeted by jack and she helped me get set up. Walked me through her procedure. Got pierced and she explained how to take care of them. The rest of the staff was very personable and help consult on some additional tattoos. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND CRUCIBLE!!! I will be returning for the rest ofMy piercing and ink needs!
I HIGHLY recommend Crucible Tattoo! "Jack" did my nose piercing 02/21/2014 and did a phenomenal job! She took the time to explain the entire procedure to me, from start to finish. She was professional, knowledgeable and confident. Jack's patience and comforting assurance with my being nervous was unbelievable! I would happily endorse future business with Crucible Tattoo!
Jonah did an excellent job. This was my first tattoo and I was nervous but he was calm and extremely professional. It was obvious that he cares about his work. The place was clean and Jonah was meticulous in his preparations. I had sent him a photo of what I wanted and he got it exactly right. He is truly an artist. I have had many compliments on my tattoo.
Just had a tattoo done by Jay and it looks wonderful. The staff were all very passionate about art and very talented. I love the fact that they use European ink (held to much higher standards than U.S. ink and much better quality). The process was clean and the artist had a light hand, so it wasn't as painful as some of my other tattoos. Overall, very impressed.
