This is in response to Mr. or Ms. Sweetz28, you have no idea of what you are talking about. I personally respect and admire all the hard work Aracely, Adrian, Shanice and Ruffo put into this tattoo shop. They are all REAL GINUWINE GOOD PEOPLE. Aracely was blessed with a creative, vulgar and beautiful mind and was blessed to be an American with that right to express what she wants to say on Facebook. Now you can say what you want as well, that is your right. But give credit where credit is due, how many people subscribe to her on Facebook? Is she not running a very well known tattoo shop on a THEE busiest street in the Southside? Just because you have a closed mind or are jealous of her and what she has, doesn’t mean you can go and leave such a disrespectful message about the business. Adrian and Ruffo’s tattoo work is known around town for how awesome it is, Shanice is a young prodigy at piercing and Aracely is doing an outstanding job on the net “REPPIN” the business and managing it as well. The tattoo shop is family orientated, clean, professional, fun and welcoming to anyone and everyone who comes in with a good attitude. I’ve got to know these people on a personal level and they are even more awesome than you would ever know. This is the only place I go to get all my tattoos and piercings done. So Sweetz28 you are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to mine. My opinion is, you are talking out of your rear end. Sincerely, Jonathan Reyes
Me and a friend went to San Antonio to get away for a few days from Houston and we just decided what the hell lets go ahead and get a tattoo, since I am coming up on my 40th birthday. We had NO clue where to go and a friend told me to go some place behind her work. Well there were FOUR tattoo p…
I got my first large tattoo the other day from a guy named Jason at the downtown location .all my other work was small up to now so i did not know what to expect getting something so large. the first thing i should say is , WOW! because he started by drawing up my tattoo out of his head in about…
I had an outstanding experience with this tattoo parlor. I am extremely pleased with my tattoo. The artist was Tobias Flores. He did an amazing job with the color, shading and detail. I'm definitely going back to Tobias for my next tattoo. He did my wife's first tattoo a few weeks back. I was…
My overall experience from the time I called to the time I stepped out the door was FANTASTIC!! I chose custom ink tattoos based off of their awesome website and several excellent reviews. I loved being able to see each tattoo artist's personal picture and individual work before I came in. I…
Mario is an amazing tattoo artist. He is great at what he does and I am SOOO happy that I got my ink done by him. Ask for him when you visit, he will most likely be working on something dope. Take a look at his stuff at mrwho.tk nothing but the best.
A real iconic paradise for true tattoo lovers, you will want to hang out around here even if you can keep from getting a great tattoo. This place is by and for those who love tattoos in an old school way, sure, but they do it all. A refreshing vibe in comparison to so many of today's cut out b…

I came in to get a portrait of a Joker done, and was highly pleased. Without a doubt the best tattoo shop I've ever seen, and the artists love to have fun with the tattoos. My wife so got one the same day and was in love with it. Best shop in texas by far
My fiancé and I both got ours here. Won't go anywhere else they're like family. Chris did my side piece and it came out beyond what I imagined it to and he has a very steady hand and Rachel is just amazing. Highly recommended

I came in to the shop to get an old tattoo covered up & these were great with me. They helped me come up with the art design and cover it properly. I'm so happy with the outcome because I hated the old tattoo. Thanks Lace for the awesome tatt, I love my new tattoo!
Mastermindstattoo moved to 13231nacogdoches rd.in San Antonio TX.78217.We have been there since January 1st. WE HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE TATTOO SHOP IN BRACKEN.YOU CAN CONTACT KIKA AT (210) 849-5465.
I went there to get a tattoo to honor my fiancée who passed. He took the time to listen to what I was wanting. I have a beautiful tattoo that honors Richard. He will be doing any more tattoos I get. It is important for them to listen to what you want then transfer it into art
It's not that we're fans of pain, but we ARE fans of this shop. It's a cozy intimate place with an intense tattoo buzz for knock down art, and just intense in general! Nice location in Hispanic neighborhood, reasonable pricing.
I had my tattoo done there totally on a whim while on a vacation with my husband and kids. I'd had a version of what I wanted in my mind for years, but I am no artist. I described my scene to Norm who turned it over to Matt. The piece that Matt came up with blew my mind. Never in a million years, could I put my description in such detail. The problem was that his art, ended up being quite a bit bigger than I had in mind. (Did I say that this was my FIRST tattoo?) I admit that I was not the easiest person to draw for! After a few re-dos (and, admittedly, cutting some of his cooler things out of the design for the sake of size and placement) it was the perfect size and perfect tattoo. Matt did an amazing job! I have wanted this tattoo for so long and cannot imagine that anyone else could have come up with something so perfect me. Being that this was my first tattoo, and I have no other experience with them, I have no clue if I charged appropriately- however, I'm thrilled with the work and would rather love something I may or may not have paid too much for than underpay for something that looks like crap. I will be going back.
I had heard nothing but good things about Texas taboo tattoos so I decided to go by and check it out. While I was there I saw the tattoo work of the owner and tattoo artist Brown . I was amazed . I was sold instantly . He had done amazing work on every person I saw. It was my first tattoo and I wanted it done right . We went through a few ideas and he asked me so many questions so we could be sure that we got it right. He took his time and literally took hours just working on the perfect design. After it was prepared and ready he started on my tattoo. I honestly think its one of the best tattoos I've ever seen in my life. I love it and will always love it. If you want some one that will give you a tattoo that you'll love for life go to Texas taboo tattoos and go see Brown! Tell him Steve from freestyle sent you and he will take care of you on the price! A++++ 2107337515 . I promise you , he's the best in San Antonio . Find me on facebook my name is Steve Long . You can see the amazing job he did on me.
My overall experience from the time I called to the time I stepped out the door was FANTASTIC!! I chose custom ink tattoos based off of their awesome website and several excellent reviews. I loved being able to see each tattoo artist's personal picture and individual work before I came in. I wanted a 10 year old tattoo that was fading revitalized. i was greeted with a smile and a handshake by my artist Jason. The shop was energetic, clean, and comfortable. Jason was quick to assess my old tattoo, answered all of my questions, offered a more than fair price, and made me feel comfortable every step of the way. He was extremely gentle during the whole session and constantly asked me how I was doing. I'm a medical professional so this resonated with me. Jason took my tattoo to the next level. His hand is steady. His work is beautiful and precise. He is an extremely talented artist. I am beyond pleased. I've asked him to help me create a mandala piece as my next tattoo.
I was stationed at fort sam houston 2 years ago and i found custom ink. I had been to many of the other shops in town and either found the skill lacking or a general unfriendliness with the artist's also those who advertised military specials only specialize in trying to over charge me.. Then a cabby recommened custom ink within a few minutes of meeting able i was sold not only where the people friendly but also very skilled in there trade also i received the artwork i wanted at a price i could not beleive for the amount of detail the peice required.I recently returned to san antonio and revisited custom ink and to my surprise not only are they now offering the military free round trips to the shop when work is purchased but also they have setup multiple Tv's showing all sports and UFC.If this wasen't enough the prices are still low for how good the work is.I will always return and leave happy again and again this shop rocks....
This shop was recommended to me by not just one but most of my friends. Everyone seemed to get a tattoo at Texas Taboo except for me, so I said Hey, I have to see what all this talking is about........ I went in confident of what I was getting was perfect, (owl) but when the artist started talking to me to add this and add a few more tweeks I was surprised of how better his idea was.....Now, that right there was an artist to me! He started talking about color, and roses, for a second I thought it was going to be a lot of money but his pricing was f*king awesome!! I went in confident, and left feeling on top of the world.....I loved it, there is no other place I would get my tattoos after going inside here....I have to give credit for the shop being so unique! from the texture on the walls to the paintings, the color, and decorations...Everything was so clean!
I've had 4 tattoos done at Adrenaline. I only have one artist do my tats since I got my first. Sonia is a wonderful and creative artist. She's so energetic she almost bounces off the walls. I love her work. I moved out of state for a couple of years and am moving back soon. I've had no more tats done since I've been gone but plan to have Sonia do some more for me as soon as I get back. The entire staff is wonderful and very informative about how things are done and are honest about the amout of pain or no pain that you may experience during whatever you have done. I'm planning to have my belly button pierced also but refuse to have anyone do it except for my friends at Adrenaline. You guys rock. Love you all and will be seeing you as soon as I get back and settled in my new home. Love, The Baby Bunny Rabbit.
I went for the first time at custom ink and tattoos to get my eyebrow pierced on my birthday. My first piercing, my tongue a year prior, was a disaster. So I was scared going in to custom ink. But Big Jesse helped me out and said he could make it as bad or good as I wanted (jokingly of course). I've already been back for two other piercings and evey time Jesse has helped me relax and enjoy it. They are sterile about their piercings and none of my piercings have gotten infected. If you've never had a piercing before, this is a good first time experience. I highly recommend them. If you got to their site, www.sanantoniotattoo.net , then you can get profiles and portfolios of the 4 tattoo artists that they have if you want to know what you're getting into and price estimates and the like.
Myself along w/ 4 life long friends in the age bracket of 35+ took off to SA to have a girls weekend away & get matching tattoos to celebrate over 20 yrs of friendship. We happened upon Custom Ink & boy were we glad we did!! Two of us were 1st timers & more than a little nervous (at least I was) but the staff were so funny & friendly we were comfortable in no time (still nervous lol). They were quick to get the ball rolling & we were in & out in less than an hour & 1/2. Thank you to Abel, John Boy & especially to CARLOS who popped my tattoo cherry & made me like it! 8-D You guys made a great experience even more memorable!! Fun, friendly, fast & fabulous at what they do!! You 3 guys made 5 women very happy, & that's saying alot!!!
Adrian And Aracely do a great job on what they do! They hired RESPONSIBLE people as well, and my parents go to Adrian for ALL their tattoos and not once have I heard them complain about anything! I had went to someone else to up size on my ears and that lady clearly had no idea wtf she was doing!! So, guess who I went to?! Shanice. Why? Because she knew what she was doing and I've heard so much about her how great of a piercer she is! And it's true!! I went and now my ears are doing WAY BETTER! so, stop trying to shut them down, and stop talking your crap just because you're not happy with your life! There's No other place like their shop . I SUPPORT THEM ALL THE WAY! And y'all should to! COME & SUPPORT THESE GUYS!!
