Walked in strangers - left as family. Let me start off by saying how much I appreciate the owners, John and April! Their warmth and kindness resonates throughout Vanity Tattoo. Every interaction my daughter and I had with them this evening starting with our phone conservation was handled in such a positive and genuine manner that we felt like family. Both John and April went above and beyond to understand my daughter's piercing needs and make her feel comfortable. They asked her about look and placement, made sure the hoops were the right size for her face and fitted her with the highest grade jewelry available. I stood there fully aware she was in good hands - that they truly had her best interest at heart. If you're evaluating sites looking for the right place - you can stop now. Vanity Tattoo is the real deal - family oriented, friendly, clean, customer focused and professional. We could not be any happier with my daughter's piercing and our experience.
Everyone here is so sweet. Very helpful and careful when you get piercings. Ill be returning for my next!
Very clean facility. Staff very friendly and accommodating. I had some ideas of what I wanted but not entirely. John worked with my design until I was beyond happy. You will not regret going to Vanity Tattoo. Nice people and professional work.
Awesome place! Have had lots of people get tattoos here. Great clean place. Alex and Johnny are amazing ..
1st tattoo by Alex. He did an awesome job and would recommend him to anyone interested in getting their first, second, ect. Going back today to get a tattoo in honor of my son, who recently passed. Sent the picture to Alex prior to the appointment and he made a few suggestions which work for me. Will post a photo when done. Best place to go hands down. ?
Great place, very clean, friendly talented staff.
I have had nothing but great experiences at vanity. Jeff has been tattooing me and my family for years and his work is always beautiful and clean. I always walk out with exactly what I wanted. I definitely recommend everyone to come here and ask for Jeff!
Great work- great staff- beautiful and clean facility. And my tattoo looks amazing! I am never going anywhere else
Great family business, starting coming to them before they moved to their current location. Always clean, respectful and have done great work on me. I even trust them to pierce my daughter's nose. I've gotten 2 tattoos here, and a piercing. Brought a friend for a tat too. Looking forward to my next one. Very soon. Love John Sr. and his wife is a sweetheart.
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.
