I've waited a long time to get my latest tattoo because I have never really trusted anyone to capture exactly what I want....until I met Sean Beck. I actually found him sort of by accident but after seeing some of his work, I knew my search for the right artist was over. We initially talked via FB and then about a week later I was sitting in his chair listening to him tell me about his vision for my ET piece. He was able to take my crappy pics and vague description and turn it into something amazing. I am now finished with 2 of the 3 sessions it will take to complete and I couldn't be happier. His ability, his attitude, his communication....everything....is top notch. I don't get some of the negative reviews - especially about attitude. Between him and his wife, Dara, I felt like I went and hung out with some friends for a few hours. Speaking of Dara, she is a hair stylist and Sean has set her up in a pretty cool booth within the shop -- check her out, she too does amazing stuff!!! So, if you are looking for a great tattoo artist, don't hesitate to go see Sean. He will exceed your expectations!
I gave this place two stars instead on one because I do not know how well their tattoos and piercing actually are. BUT I wanted to give it one star because I was told to come here after finding out the place across the street (Port City Tattoo) had ran out of small monroe bars. The price was only $10 dollars there but after a few days, i realized the piercing was entirely too small. I tried taking it out and it got stuck. eventually the diamond went into the hole in my lip. I went to a local doctors and they helped get it out but I did end up passing out soon after. I do not want to change peoples minds about this place or to diss it but I want to let you know what i just had to go through becuase they gave the wrong size piercing. I was extremely painful for a 15 year old girl.
Initially, I was going to go to the Hardwire Tattoo shop downtown but I'm glad I didn't. My mother in law and I wanted to get some tattoos so we set out for some girl time. This was my mother in law's first tattoo but I already had a couple. We were able to walk right in and discuss the artwork we wanted. The customer service we received was 5 star. The atmosphere was laid back and very family oriented but yet professional. The prices were just right and the artwork was most definitely 5 star. My mother in law and I were very pleased with Matt and BJ's work. Looking for a new tattoo!?! Go to Hardwire Tattoo on Cedar Ave.
After doing a bunch of research for a memorial tattoo for my brother who passed away, I decided to go with Sean Beck at Mom's. I read a few bad reviews but I let the quality of his work ultimately guide my decision. I'm so happy with the way my tattoo turned out, I honestly couldnt have asked for better work. I thought he was friendly as well and didn't encounter any "attitude". Even if I had, the work was great enough that it wouldn't have mattered. Do yourself a favor and get a good quality tattoo from Sean. If negative reviews scare you off, grow a pair :)
I got my monroe piercing here and my piercer was super cool and chill, which helped. He took very good care of me when I got a little light headed and the price was over all great. I paid $40 and it was quick and painless. The only problem I had was that I tried to go back and get my shorter bar so it would not stick out of my face any more but they had ran out so I was told to go to Jade Monkey which was across the street and they gave me an entirely wrong size. I reviewed them as well, so check that out if you are intrested.
Tommy is amazing! Best freehand artist in town I'd say. The atmosphere was very inviting. The place is family run and it shows. They were very friendly and made me feel like I was at home. I have been to many shops in town and I am happy to say that there are still wicked artists in this town that are not full of themselves. I also liked that they used disposable single use needles. I felt much safer. The artwork they did for me was incredible and the price was great! Thanks Tommy and Melissa. See you again soon!JR
Ok so I've was reading the reviews posted on here and I have to say they must be from haters because I've been going to mom's for 15 years and Sean is hands down the best artist I've seen in Wilmington his work is extremely detailed and accurate his prices are great and I wouldn't have anyone else work on me.
Awesome staff & atmosphere. Everyone is very knowledgeable & welcoming. Tattoo looks great & healed perfectly. Will absolutely be going back & recommending here for both tattoos & piercings.
I've been going to CFT since my first tattoo. The staff is laid back and friendly. The shop is always pristine and full of awesome art. Good environment, great tattoos.
They where very friendly and talkative. Tgis was my first tattoo and they graciously squeezed me in at the last minuet. Wonderful shop highly recommend.
