Found this place doing a Google search when my fiancé and I was looking for tattoo parlor. I stumbled across their number and gave them a call. I ask about their services and I was given the run down in a very easy to understand and professional manner which made me at ease since this would be my first tat in my life at 40! The shop owner was very pleasant scheduling a consult so I can be at ease. Fast forward the day comes and we had the pleasure to meet Xavier a tattoo artist who did the consult and walk us through the process as we gave him the vision for our tattoos. The next day he had the stencil made and Joe was available for my fiancé to do her art work. The process was a breeze and the studio is clean and easy to navigate all the artists artistry in an open area. Weeks later now wife and I are very satisfied and we will be back again. The follow up after the job was what really won me over and showed us that they stand behind their art work. So to Aniya, Xavier and Joe thank you for making our first couple tattoo a Huge Success!
I just turned forty and decided to get the tattoo I always wanted. I live in Jacksonville, Florida, so I was looking for a tattoo studio in my city. I went to a place that was recommended to me and was completely unimpressed. My family and I went to Savannah for a long weekend and that is when I found Savannah Ink. I immediately loved to studio. It was so nice and clean. When I met Peter for the first time he couldn't have been nicer. We talked for a few minutes and I made an appointment for the next day to come in and discuss the design I wanted. When I went in the next day Peter really listened to what I wanted and gave me suggestion on his design. Within an hour after after I left Peter's studio he sent me the design he came up with, via text. The next day I went in and got my tattoo. Peter took the time to explain what the process would be like and the aftercare for my tattoo. Peter was done in about an hour and my tattoo was exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much Peter. I get so many compliments on how great my tattoo looks.
Greatest tattoo ever!!!!My experience at Tatlyfe was Perfect from the art,time it took, movies I watched while getting tatted to the great & insightful conversation with Big Jake I had during our session.... I had been in need of a cover up of my ex-wife's name on my chest that no one wanted to touch out of fear of being incompetent for over 6 years in numerous states... But not Big Jake he took the cover up & the idea of what I wanted as a challenge....A challenge that he greatly succeeded & exceeded all of my imagination & expectations in because I am more than pleased and it looks better & better everday & time I look at it...Not to mention the politeness of his wife & her professionalism when it comes to following up...She checked on me & my tattoo & gave me great advice on after care...I recommend Tatlyfe for anyone serious about getting a HIGH QUALITY TATTOO in a positive environment by professionals that exceed expectations & genuinely care. Thank You Big Jake & Thank God for Tatlyfe for fixing my mistake. Sincerely, -Sky-
"Word on the Street" literally is attracted me to Tatlyfe Studios. It was three years ago on a hot August day strolling down Derenne talking to a friend about tattoos when we ran into a guy talking about Tatlyfe. Back then I was only 19 but still old enough to get in the shop. Mrs. Aniya is the first person I met and I could tell she is a very professional woman. I enjoyed walking into a "black-owned" business but they don't see color or dollar signs. They believe in art and the atmosphere in there is amazing. That day I paid a deposit on my second tattoo and I loved Big Jake's work. They allow you to "set your budget" and work with your pockets. They take out time to assist you as a client instead of only focusing on how much will be spent. Now it's 2015 and I went from one to five tattoos (four of them being done at Tatlyfe Studios.) I've also had the pleasure of being tattooed by all of the artists and I would recommend this establishment to anyone. I love the Tatlyfe family.
I recently got a sleeve started at Tatlyfe. My experience here was beyond amazing. When I went in to get my appointment, Ms. Aniya was very knowledgeable of what is to be expected and very good at dealing with business. She makes sure that every detail you are wanting is noted and works within your budget. There were no complications with setting appointments and she makes sure there are no misunderstandings. Big Jake is who did my tattoo. He is beyond amazing with his talent. He has soft hands and very easy going while doing your tattoo. I was able to watch movies as he did my tattoo and he makes sure you are as comfortable as can be. I like the fact that while getting my tattoo that no one can be in there with you...it is just you and the artist. I like the fact that there are no distractions for him while he is putting something permanent on my body. Overall I am beyond satisfied with my experience here. :)
Tatlyfe will always get five stars from me. The one and only shop I will recommend in Georgia!!! I walked in years ago to get a tribute tattoo and now I walk in as family. After at least 18 tattoos I have always left satisfied with their work. Anything from my words to my gigantic custom pieces, every artist that has worked on me has exceeded my expectations. Mrs. Aniya and Big Jake run a clean and professional shop. The customer service is extraordinary. They try to make sure everyone is informed and that they know exactly what they want. If you want relaxed environment with amazing artists that not only care about their work but how you as a consumer feel about your final product go check them out. Go in choose from one of their extensive books or if you are feeling creative, give them and idea and let them show you their magic! You will not be disappointed. TL4L
I met the owners of Avail, Dooz and Gina, before they opened their own shop, and even back then I was impressed with their work and persoalities. I could bore you to death about how fair their prices are, but that was never the reason I decided to get 6 tattoo's and counting wih thm. And it shouldn't be yours either. My reason is for their artisitc and creative eyes, and their willingness to be straight up with you. If you want a tattoo that will not reflect true artistic creativity, they do not want their name associated with it, so they will not do it! If you want real artwork, doe by people who truly care about what they ink on you, and in an environment that is not only CLEAN AND SANITARY, but also makes you want to hang out in even when you're not getting tat'd, go to Avail, and tell Gina and Dooz that you are there for some art!
I have to start off by saying, I'm not one to write reviews unless the experience was beyond exceptional. Tattoos are something that stick with you for life, and when you look back on your first tattoo you appreciate the work, but more importantly remember the experience. Tatlyfe Studios is truly the place to go if you want both quality work and service that makes you feel right at home. With that, they get a 5 star rating for service, atmosphere, fair pricing, and most of all, quality work. As far as the environment, you don't realize how big the place is when you walk up to the storefront, but each artist has their own space, their rooms are large and roomy, the atmosphere is light, friendly, and welcoming. I won't let anyone else besides Tatlyfe Studios tattoo me. I would highly recommend Tatlyfe Studios
To anyone that wants a tattoo, the place to go is Tatlyfe Studios. They are the best. I got a cover up done and it turned out perfectly. Big Jake is a true artist and I could not ask for anyone better. He really cares about his work and it shows. Another good thing about Jake is he really tries not to hurt you. He has a very gentle touch and he makes sure to check if you need a break as often as possible. The tattoo even impressed my father-in-law in the details and how real it looked. I thought this was awesome since my father-in-law is an artist as well. Everyone is very friendly and there is a very professional setting. I also liked the way they do their pricing, you agree on the price and there are no surprises in the end with unexpected charges. I would not go to anyone else. Keep up the good work.
If I could give something higher than a 5 star review, I would! Aniya immediately made me feel right at home. She was knowledgeable and very friendly. Big Jake was very patient with me. He took the tattoo concept I had in mind and took the time to transform it into something one-of-a-kind. The design and final product far exceeded my expectations. I am so glad that they took the time to work with me and recreate my design. The shop itself was fantastic! Everything was very clean. There was some really cool artwork and I enjoyed being able to watch a movie while getting my piece done. I walked in hesitant but walked out family. This should definitely be your go to place for tattoos. Tatlyfe definitely lives up to the great reviews and I would highly recommend it to everyone! I will be back for sure!
