LOVE LOVE LOVE this place. I did my research before going down, this wasn't done on a whim. I've had many a tattoo and Jesse has, by far, the lightest touch I've ever felt. I had a 3"x3" sternum tat done in full colour and was a bit fearful of how painful it was going to be. It was like having it licked on by kittens. I kid you not. If this is your first tat or if you have large colour work needing done Jesse is the man to see. I am still on a high from the whole experience. He was very professional from the minute we walked in. Nice clean shop too, which is very important. We plan to go back regularly for all our inking needs to be sure!

I went with my cousin to Las Vegas in August of 2010. We had been tossing the idea of getting a tattoo around for a while and decided it would be a great souvenir to take home. Her boyfriend found Pair-A-Dice tattoo online, so we went to take a look. The first thing I noticed was that the place was wicked clean. The tools they used were sterile and both Jake's and Matt's portfolio looked amazing.
She got her tattoo done by Jake, I got mine done by Matt. They both came out amazing. They were very nice and calming about the whole ordeal. The tattoos came out phenomenal and I even got a discount because of the personal reasons surrounding my tattoo.
Both my cousin and I plan on going back to this shop. Discount or not, they are very talented artists who I would (and do) recommend to everyone.

Went with a friend to get tattoos for our birthdays. Had no trouble finding the shop--it's just behind and across the street from the Sahara hotel. We were nervous, but Derrick was great--very patient with us. The place is very clean and sanitary. Both our tattoos turned out great--we are very pleased with them. I would definitely go back if I decided to get another tattoo.

so my sisters boyfriend got all of his tattoos from brett and my sister got hers from him too and when i turned 18 i decided to go to the same place. i wanted a tattoo of peter pan on my shoulder blade. i brought in a picture my friend had drawn up for me and brett tweaked it and made it absolutely perfect. the place is extremely clean and the artists are very nice and fun. my tattoo turned out absolutely gorgeous. i get compliments almost daily and even had some one ask if it was real because it has so much color and looks so amazing. people tell me all the time that it is probably the prettiest tattoo they've ever seen. i love it and after getting another tattoo at a different place and having it turn out alright (simple tattoo, needs a touchup after 2 months) i will not go anywhere else for my tattoos besides pair-a-dice.

I walked in on june 26th with only a general idea of what I wanted. I looked through the other artists portfolio and Bub's work really stood out to me (Other artists were very talented but Bub's artwork was what caught me eye the most) and I had to get some of his work. I tossed a few ideas hoping he would be able to incorperate them into the design that I wanted. (Flames, some dice , maybe a spade, and definitally wanted some glowing eyes along with a few others) Sure enough ended up with a great piece of artwork on my arm. Great really layed back atmosphere, very clean, non-snobby, environment. Will be back!
Cya again in a few,

I found Pair-A-Dice tattoo online and loved Don's portfolio. Sent him an email of the general idea of what I wanted and got a very prompt response. We figured out our schedules and set an appointment. Don was very nice in person, made me feel as comfortable about getting my first tattoo as humanly possible, and did an awesome job! The place was spotless, and time was taken to ensure everything was properly sanitized, etc. The price was very reasonable for the quality of the artwork I received. I will not go to anyone else. Thank you for being my first, Don! ;-)

I came in to the shop at 4 on a Saturday night, with NO reservation, and only an idea of what I wanted for my first tattoo, Don drew up a PERFECT sketch of what I wanted. I was in a chair getting tattooed by 4:30. He gave me a great rate that was FAR below what I was expecting. He calmed my nerves about getting my first tattoo. I watched as they wiped down the counter with alcohol, watched him sanitize his hands, watched him take the needles out, everything was VERY sanitary! The music was just loud enough so I could concentrate on it, instead of the pain of getting my first tattoo, but quiet enough so I could talk to Don about how everything was going. When everything was done, I was amazed by the detail and obvious effort Don put into this beautiful piece of art, I am proud to have it. Don gave me comprehensive and detailed aftercare tips, and my ink is healing up great. I am coming back just for Don. I really recommend coming into the shop trusting the artist to put their own spin onto your idea, I never expected it to come out this beautiful. I?m very happy I trusted Don to make my dream tattoo a reality, and I trusted him to do his own thing with it, it made all the difference. You can tell everyone loves what they do there, and they pour their heart and soul into every piece they do. Pair-a-dice was a truly unforgettable tattoo experience. THANK YOU.

The first time I went to Pair-A-Dice, I went to get a memorial tattoo in honor of my late father. I was tattooed by Brett, and the detail on my tattoo was amazing. It's probably only the size of a half dollar, but the Old English lettering on it is still nice and clear after 2 years. I most recently went to the shop for a tattoo last week. I got my nickname in script on my forearm, and I'm extremely happy with the results. The artist Don was great to talk to, and my tattoo was done quickly without compromising the quality. Like the other reviewer said, the shop is extremely clean, but I believe the work is much better than they're making it sound. I paid only $80 for my tattoo, and I believe it's worth every penny. In fact, I'm going back tomorrow night. Whenever any of my friends ask me to point them towards a great shop for tattoos and piercings, I ALWAYS send them to Pair-A-Dice
My sister and I went to Vegas with intentions of getting matching tattoos. We were directed to Pair A Dice by a gentleman at TI. We went through a lot to get to this place. Yes, a couple of the people there were very nice and helpful. It was a good environment, very clean. However, our tattooist totally slaughtered the design we picked out. Granted, it did take us an hour of changing our minds to finally make a decision and he was rather irritated with us. Come on everyone - its permanent!!! He jacked us on the price and charged us $90 each for a little tattoo that doesnt even cover an inch and a half of skin... Supposed to be a skull and crossbones - doesn't even resemble a skull. I'm going to have to pay a local Iowa tattoo artist to fix it for me. So thank you Matt, for ruining an irreplaceable once in a lifetime memory.
Some of the people were nice and it was clean and sanitary. The tattoo on the other hand was not very good. You can't tell what it is by looking at it. It looks nothing like what was picked out. It seemed like that tattoo artist was rushing and didn't care about what he was doing. I am going to have to pay someone else to fix it. I don't recommend going here. I think I got overcharged big time. The tattoo itself is not that big and there wasn't any detail at all. Overall my tattoo looks horrible. Definitely not something I want on my body for the rest of my life.

I was nervous about getting my first tattoo, but after emailing Bub several times, I felt very comfortable with my decision to use this shop. It was a quick walk from our hotel room at the Stratosphere. Jesse explained everything to me and assured me of the cleanliness & sterility of everything used. The tattoo (Las Vegas sign) took about 2 hours & care of it was clearly explained. I have recommended it to my friends & will be back again next time I'm in Vegas.
