After searching for the right place with the right vibe for quite a lengthy time and coming up blank, I started looking online for reviews on tattoo shops. Obviously I looked for the highest rated and had my search narrowed down to 2. The first one (only first due to closer location) met me with an elitist attitude and what seemed to be a complete ignorance of what I was asking for (references all in hand). The second was Mile High Tattoo... what a difference. My husband, son and I were met by the very friendly Van and spoke with Matt Garner who actually took the time to listen, offer suggestions, and seem excited to do the work. The shop was clean and professional with the vibe I was seeking... not a club, not a morgue! The price was exactly what I had expected and budgeted and the portfolios were excellent. Obviously, I booked an appointment. I couldn't be happier with the work that was done. I was looking for a cover up of a 24 year old steaming kidney on my arm (not really a kidney, but 24 years ago it was a flaming heart) and Matt did such an amazing job in a 3 hour sitting (oh, I was remiss in stating that shop 1 vaguely told me this could take up to two 4 hour sittings due to blah blah and blah....). I left with a turtle that was intricate and beautiful. He was not only thorough in the artwork, but likewise in the after care steps. I left with no questions and no concerns and a tattoo that I CAN live with and love forever :-) I will never go anywhere else but here, neither should you!
