My experience with Bitter Sweet Tattoo started when I called them up to see if they had any space available for me to come in and get a tattoo that week. I spoke with Slick and was seriously surprised at how nice the guy was on the phone. I have been to a few different tattoo shops and too many times have come across artists with a bad attitude- showing absolute no interest in what I am there for and acting like they must be rolling in the dough and clearly don't need my business. Slick asked all the right questions and scheduled me to come in for a consultation. I met with Angelle who was so open-minded and helpful. I ended up choosing to get my tattoo done by Slick and scheduled an appointment that week. I handed them a somewhat bland sketch (I'm no artist), emailed my inspiration, and when I arrived at the shop that Tuesday I was completely speechless looking at what Slick had drawn up for me. Not only was the size perfect for the contour of my shoulderblade (on the first try), but it was clear that Slick had taken the time to think about what this tattoo meant to me, incorporating all aspects I had wanted incorporated and then some. Slick was genuinely open-minded to any changes and feedback, letting me know that if we had to place the sketch on my shoulder 500 times before it was just right, we would do so (even though once again, he got it right the first time). He gave me breaks when I needed them so I could stretch out and was in no rush at all. Aside from the tattoo part of the experience, Slick is seriously one of the kindest, coolest guys I have ever met with an incredible perspective and outlook on life. My tattoo is more beautiful than I could have imagined it, and I am so grateful that I chose this shop. I have definitely found a home for my tattoos and would never consider going anywhere else. Definitely looking forward to getting more work done from Slick in the future!
