  • review rating 5  I always have amazing experiences at Vanity, it’s clean and everyone is welcoming. I get my work done by Johnny who’s an amazing artist and an awesome guy to talk to, never makes you feel uncomfortable or rushed when making decisions and is always prepared. Seen him for 3 tattoos the past 1.5 years and I’m already planning my 4th.

  • review rating 5  I love this place. Even though I only got one tattoo at Vanity I have nothing bad to say about this place. Everyone is so nice there but the only thing I had problems with was the after care for a belly piercing. I was told to wash it with regular Dial soap when I take a shower and not to use Seal salt spray. After a year following the after care advice my piercing was not healing right and hurt like a mother and wouldn't stop bleeding. I finally gave up and purchased Sea salt spray and my piercing is now healing the way it should. Other than that I can't complain and would definitely get another tattoo at Vanity.
