I couldn't wait to turn 18 and get my first tattoo...knowing nothing, I let price dictate where and who did my first tattoo. It was crooked and over the years I began to hate it and was actually considering having it removed. A friend recommended I speak with James Dumford at Artisan after he spent so much time with her just discussing her design and placement idea.I stopped in to show him what I had and what my thoughts were for what I would like to have, something that MEANT something to me. When I came back a week later, James showed me the most beautiful design. It took over 3 hrs but what I ended up with is an original piece of artwork on my ankle that I am proud to show off. I tell everyone who asks to go see him for their work.The shop was clean and everyone there was friendly. I've had him do two other pieces as well and have nothing but praise for him and his craft. This shop feels like a family environment and my whole experience was fantastic.
I have had the pleasure of using Artisan for my body art for well over six years now. I have always had an incredible experience when I go in to be tattooed. James is creative, talented and professional. He has taken several of my ideas and been able to make them into beautiful artwork and I get multiple compliments on my tattoos. The color is outstanding and the lines are beautiful. I even had a tattoo that I had gotten somewhere else that he covered up and is now one of my favorite tattoos. I have sent several people in his direction and each of them have nothing but praise for what they have received from Artisan. This shop is amazingly clean and very well kept up. Even though I have moved away from the Fort Wayne area, I still will return to James and Artisan Tattoo Co for my tattoos.
As soon as I walked into the shop I was impressed. The entire shop smelled and looked clean. The restroom was spotless. James has done 2 of my tattoos. I love them both. He was professional and listened to my ideas and drew just what I wanted. I am currently working with James for my next work of art. I have sent many of my friends to James that have had work done. James not only has a brilliant talent but his professionalism had me from our first meeting. I will continue to refer family and friends to James for any tattoos. I cant wait to make my next appointment.
after being tattooed by unprofessional rookies, i had an arm full of bad tats. after researching every shop in ft. wayne, i found my guy! nicky at artisan did the most beautiful cover ups in the area. he made a mess turn into a masterpiece! sice being rescued by nicky, i have TWO incredibly colorful sleeves that i proudly display. he is friendly,professional, and has a talent that others wish they had. all my tats were done freehand, no flash, no stencil....thats a true artist. remember u get what u pay for, id never let anyone else touch my skin but NICKY at artisan!!
