  • I absolutely love this place and would recommend it to anyone! John did my tattoo and I am absolutely in love with it. His artwork is beautiful, he does very clean, neat work, and makes you feel so comfortable. The rest of the artists are all very nice as well, and April is a sweetheart. I will definitely be back very soon for my next one.

  • Absolutely adore this establishment! I’ve frequented it for years now, getting different piercings, and have never been disappointed. I had a very detailed linework drawing tattooed on my hip earlier today by the owner, John. He did an incredible job and I’m overly pleased. I would recommend this shop ten times over for their cleanliness and personability. Much love, Vanity Tattoo.
