WOW! LET ME START OFF BY SAYING THAT I'M NOT "THE TATTOO BILLBOARD". I LOST MY DOG OF 14 YEARS AND WANTED A PORTRAIT OF HIM ON MY SHOULDER. I LOOKED ONLINE AND SEARCHED FOR A TATTOO GALLERY THAT DEMONSTRATED TO ME THAT THEY HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO MY TATTOO VERY WELL. I FOUND OG TATTOO IN ORLANDO, FL. THE ARTIST (AND I MEAN THIS IN THE TRUEST SENSE) SKYE, HAD A TATTOO OF A DOG ON HER GALLERY THAT WAS DONE ON A WOMAN'S HAND. I THOUGHT OK, I WILL WRITE TO HER AS I WAS OUT OF THE COUNTRY AT THE TIME AND SHE HAD THE ABILITY TO DO THIS TATTOO WELL. SHE WROTE BACK TO ME AND WE SCHEDULED AN APPOINTMRENT FOR THE DAY AFTER I ARRIVED. WHEN I WENT TO THE TATTOO ESTABLISHMENT EXPECTING A GRUNGY ATMOSPHERE AND HUNDREDS OF FLIP CHARTS, I WAS GREATLY SURPRISED TO SEE NEITHER OF THOSE THINGS. INSTEAD, I FOUND AN ART GALLERY, WELCOMING ATMOSPHERE, AND FRIENDLY PEOPLE. THE STUDIO WAS VERY CLEAN, AND THE ARTISTS WERE FANTASTIC. I CONSULTED WITH SKYE AND TALKED ABOUT THE TATTOO I IMAGINED AND PROVIDED HER A PHOTO SO SHE COULD START PLANNING FOR THE FOLLOWING DAY. WHEN I RETURNED THE NEXT DAY, SHE ALREADY HAD THE DRAWN BASE AND IN LOOKING AT IT, IT WAS EXACT! MY TATTOO IS MUCH LARGER THAN THE ONE I SEEN IN HER GALLERY AND IT WAS TO BE PPLACED ON MY SHOULDER. SHE BEGAN WORKING AND IN TALKING WITH HER, I ASKED WHY THE STUDIO HAS NO FLIP CHARTS, SHE RESPONDED "WE DO ALL ORIGINAL ART BASED ON EACH PERSONS DESIRE". WHILE SKYE (AND THE OTHER ARTISTS) CAN DO SIMPLE DESIGNS FROM BOOKS OR MAGAZINES, THEY PREFER TO TALK WITH THEIR CUSTOMERS TO MAKE SURE THEY TATTOO ONLY THE DESIRED IMAGE. DURING MY TIME IN THE CHAIR, A GENTELMAN HAD A TATTOO FROM ONE OF THE OTHER ARTISTS. IT WAS OF A LOCK (WOULDNT BE MY FIRST CHOICE) BUT IT WAS PERFECT. THE DEPTH AND DIMENSION MADE IT APPEAR THAT IT WAS THREE DIMENSIONAL. MY WIFE ACCOMPANIED ME AND SEEING THIS TATTOO INSPIRED MY WIFE TO HAVE A SMALL TATTOO ALSO. THEY TATTOO'ED HER AND IT WAS FANTASTIC! THEY CAPTURED THE SAME THREE-DIMENSIONAL APPEARANCE. MY TATTOO TOK ABOUT 4-1/2 HOURS INCLUDING A COUPLE BREAKS AND IS PHENOMIONAL! SKYE CAPTURED THE EXACCT IMAGE OF MY BUDDY. SHE WORKED FROM THE PHOTO SHE PRINTED AND USED AN IPAD TO ZOOM IN ON EVERY DETAIL. WHEN I LOOK AT THE TATTOO, IT IS UNMISTAKINGLY MY LITTLE GUY.I WILL BE GOING BACCK AGAIN AND WILL ONLY USE SKYE AT OG TATTOOS. SHE PROMISED TO PUT MY TATTOO ONLINE BUT I HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET. I COULDN'T IMAGINE A BETTER EXPERIENCE ANYWHERE!
A few friends and I decided to get tattoos a few weeks ago. So we began to do some research on artists and shops in the area. Multiple friends of ours suggested Mason at Age Of Ink. So we decided to give him a try. We didn't make an appointment and showed up kind of later in the day. Around 9:30 in the evening. After getting into the shop we got to meet Mason. he was currently tattooing but asked if we would wait for him a few moments up front so he could touch base. After a few minutes he came up and began talking with us. he was very comical to say the least. He did mention that he is close to appointment only but wouldn't mind staying late to tattoo us. I guess he thought we were just as fun. The shop usually closes at 10 on a wednesday but he ended up staying there with all three of us till about 12:30 am, and honestly didn't slack off at all. We all love our tattoos. The lines are so clean and they are all healing soo well. I'm no tattoo expert but I have had a few from other shops, and Masons is by far the best. I can't thank him enough for taking us all on last minute and not slacking at all. He even seemed to be enjoying himself. Cracking jokes with us and well, it was just an honest great experience. Thank you again Mason and Age Of Ink!
My roommate went to get her first tattoo tonight and was very nervous. From the start, everyone was very nice at the shop. She had Johnny as her artist. He was very friendly and helped her create the tattoo that she wanted. He fixed the size a few times to make it exactly what she wanted. When in the room, it was very private because everyone has a separate room. Johnny was very nice and made sure she knew exactly what was going to happen. During the tattoo, he held a conversation to keep her mind off of the pain. He was very friendly and enjoyable to have as an artist. The tattoo was done in no time and turned out great. She loves it and will go back there for anymore that she gets.While we were at the shop, I got my nose pierced by Dan. My room was also very private. Everything is very clean and sterile because you watch them take the tools out of the packages. Dan was very nice and easy to talk to. The piercing turned out great and i would definitely go back. Also, both men were very nice to deal with my crazy friends watching them do the tattoo and piercing. Overall a great experience.
Let me start bysaying the people here were really friendly and nice, butI had three piercings done to my helix here about 8 weeks ago and they are definitely screwed up. I really wasn't given great information on how to care for the peircings, but because I have a history of being pierced I knew what I needed to do to care for them. Like I said, it has been 8 weeks and they are still very painful (as to be expected) and the placement is off. It's almost like the last of the three will rip through the skin if it gets yanked on wrong (there is plenty of room where it could have been scooted over) and will not stop bleeding. The placement was not like this when they were marked for the piercing (because I checked). I couldn't tell this right away because of the swelling. The first of the piercings has been infected regarless of the intense care I have done to make sure they stay clean and sterile. I am overall very dissatisfied with the piercings and it sucks to say this because they people were so nice.
Exceptional service and workmanship. I went in for my first tattoo and was very nervous. I was immediately greeted by a staff member who offered me something to drink and confirmed my appointment time. I didn't have to wait long before Oscar was ready for me. He was very calm and professional the entire time. The best thing I noticed was how clean the place is! Everything is sanitized thoroughly and completely spotless. Oscar explained every step and made sure I was completely comfortable the entire time. Oscar used a light, gentle hand and made sure I had some time to rest during the tattooing process. He asked how I was doing and checked in on me. He was honest about how long it would take and communicated everything he was doing. The final result looks amazing, it bled very little and didn't hurt nearly as much as I thought it would. I would and plan to recommend this location to anyone who asks. Two thumbs up- I'll definitely plan on coming back for another tattoo!!!
My mom and I went on my birthday 2/15/13 to re-pierce my nose and to get her Tragus pierced. Dan greeted us and answered our questions and Stevo did the actual piercings. I'm sure their business is visited primarily by college students given its proximity to UCF - but they made me (46 yrs and mom, 68 yrs) feel quite comfortable. Everything was thoroughly explained and care instructions given. Shop was very clean, they all had a good sense of humor and although we waited a while it wasn't terrible. I didn't write a review until after both of our piercings healed so that we could give an honest start to finish rating. I'm amazed at how quickly both our piercings healed (I'd had my nose pierced 6 yrs ago and it took a few months to heal and got infected a few times during the process). Neither of us has had any problems and we give OTC five stars without hesitation. Maybe next year we'll get tattoo's :)
I came in on friday the 13th for a special friday the 13th tattoo. The line was unreal but the vibe and atmosphere were a lot of fun. I did have to wait a few hours to get my tattoo but Mason made sure to take care of me. In fact they all stayed very late after the shop was supposed to close to take care of everyone. I was one of the last people in there towards 4 in the morning and everyone was still busy. I wasn't expecting very much for 13 dollars but Mason really did do an exceptional job. He gave me a one of a kind tattoo and a decent size. I got way more than I expected and I am honestly looking forward to coming back to spend some money on a larger tattoo. To be honest I can't get over the quality of the piece I got from him. I've had a few tattoos but his is by far my favorite.
Just wanted to express my awesome experience at Age of Ink Tattoo studio! Mason Flippin, can't forget this guys name at all, was and will be my tattoo artist. He really took the time to figure out exactly what I wanted. I was looking for an artist ever since I came Orlando to start my long awaited Nature Themed leg sleeve. The attention to detail that was taken was absolutely amazing and I have not had this kind of treatment anywhere else I must say. Mason is a true artist and draws everything out. If you don't like it, he will change it to your liking! The shop as a whole was very clean and neat. Awesome people working there! I would recommend Mason Flippin at Age of Ink Tattoo studio to anyone looking for a unique, one of a kind, personalized piece that will last a lifetime!
This place is great! Went in last night to get my nose pierced for my birthday and couldn't be happier with the results. Staff were awesome and funny, and I talked to several of the piercers and artists that were there. Very relaxed atmosphere, clean shop, and knowledgeable guys. Dan also got my markings right on the first try and experience was as quick and painless as can be. Had questions on other piercings and Dan explained everything with a smile. Also told me how to take care of my piercing and gave my the paper with aftercare instructions. Could have been a little more detailed about aftercare but I've already gotten a few piercings so i know what to do. Would definitely recommend for piercings.
Went into the shop today with my friend. Both of us wanted to get different parts of our ears peirced. My friend got her upper cartilage and I got the tragus (I think that's what is called). Our experience was great and the staff accommodated us and we're very friendly when we came in without an appointment. I was slightly hesitant since this shop is one that's right off of I drive amongst all the tourist attractions and silly shops, but the shop had a nice local feel to it. We also both go some type of deal because we were SeaWorld team members, and I believe the price we got was very fair!! Our piercer's name was Junior and he was very nice and made us feel comfortable . Thanks guys!
