Captain did a great dream catcher piece on me from my birthday in honor of my grandma took time to listen to what I wanted and made it my favorite piece his prices are great too highly recommend
Got my dimples pierced and even though it was pretty busy everyone was so nice and professional I definitely will be returning in the future and recomend Ink Life to all my friends and family truly an awsome experience
I found the most amazing tattoo studio in Olympia or anywhere else. I have several friends that are tattoo artist but they dont live here in the state but I showed them the work Lou did on me and they were really impressed. He did amazing work. very professional atmosphere and everyone there was so nice and friendly. I will forever be a client and go nowhere else. Thank you so much
I have several tattoos and have never had an experience like the one I had a INKLIFE. Captain Lu was wonderful and the experience I had there will always be remembered with fondness. His 40 years of experience truly showed through. He did exactly what I wanted and I could not have been more pleased. The comments I get from people about the tat have all been more thanamazing, very positive. It was an honor to have such a professional work on me. I look forward to seeing and working with you again when I get back to Olympia. Thanks, Captain Lu!! Remember: Eat Salmon
They are Kind to everyone and clean! They have lifted me up out of my wheel chair and put me on the tattoo table 3 times, im no smally cookie, but they didnt act put out at all. other tattoo shops wouldnt ever even be bothered to talk to me. they are clean, and me and my hubby have been going to this place for over 8 years. if you want to be treated right, go here, they treat everyone like they matter, and they do great custom work. real attention to detail on the tattoo work its so bright and clean, and im a stickler for details. i cant wait till i get back in the area, try em out you wont be sorry!!!
FANTASTIC SHOP WILL FOR SURE GO BACK! HOLY CRAP the shop looks amazing! it makes you feel good just to walk in the place. My girl got several piercings at Inklife and i talked to 2 of their artists about tattoos, i love this shop! it is by far the friendliest in town!!! so much custom art here to look at...it feels like an artistic place and so clean and sterile they open everything in front of u and throw it all away too. u know for sure they don't reuse anything, ive heard stories of shops that arent near as clean!!! , autoclave right there to see, the place is spotless!!!!!!!!! and everyone is always nice and helpful every time we go there! i cant imagine dealing with the mean attitude and im so cool kinda crap that a lot of the shops in town have! come on, tattoos are cool but we are all people peeps! whats up, u know right!? GO TO INKLIFE! for real! im not getting paid and i dont work there, i just want everyone to know this is the spot in Olympia! there is no better place to go!!!. soft touch, amusing as hell capt lu makes me laugh and mike all them have great art work and my girl loves Dustin, man he knows so much about piercing, im not into them , but if i was i sure wouldn't go to the mall, pick his brain for sure! GO HERE! You wont be sorry. oh and Nice hair Chopper.
GO TO THIS SHOP! It is seriously the BEST tattoo and piercing shop in the Olympia area, not only do they do amazing custom work, but their attitudes and customer service can not be beat and I have been to so many shops in this town, some people jn these other shops can't even be bothered to talk to you and answer a few simple questions and some want you to pay $100 just to talk to an artist. I was looking for 2 different styles of work, I wanted a realistic bride of Frankenstein kinda big and my wife wanted some simple bold bright flowers on her lower back and later wants to get a portrait and she got pierced while we were there too. Wow people that take the time to explain stuff to you and don't make you feel stupid. You should see the portfolios of the guys in this shop. WOW! they really have a ton of time doing this u can tell. Really smooth clean work. The atmosphere in the shop is not compairable to any other shop in town. They greet you with a smile as soon as you come in but they don't try to push u into anything and it is just a relaxing feeling in there. Its bright and clean and just kinda a chill place. We searched for the right spot and this is it! We wont go anywhere else, and we both have a lot of tattoo work and time in shops all over Cali, Idaho and WA, this is our shop!!!!!
INKLIFE is an amazingly different studio from al ot of tattoo places you walk into, and our attitudes are always welcoming and happy to answer questions! we pride ourselves on it. Im Kristine, One of the owners. Altered States is closed, and INKLIFE is our shop at 307 4th AVe E.
