Testimonials

  • review rating 5  Nothing bad to say about this place. Johnny and John are awesome. They both have done tattoos on me and both came out amazing. I see a lot of negative comments about this place. Honestly if you have a bad experience just call them and I'm sure they will find a way to fix it. But keep in mind and treat everyone with respect. Not everyone will put up with your childish behavior. After all respect should be given if you expect it in return.

  • review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  I have been going to Vanity since it was at its old location. It has been the only place I feel truly comfortable at. If you need a tattoo done definitely go to Vanity!! Ask for Jeff! Everyone there is great, but Jeff does all my tattoos and he is definitely very conscious of what you want, and comes up with great designs when you have just an idea of what you want. His work is always impeccable. You can count on him to give you want you want, and I also feel comfortable asking for it to be fixed if it is not 100% how I want. Definitely go to vanity! It’s like a second home!

  • review rating 5  We’ve been here several times for simple piercings and always get exceptional customer service, everyone is always very nice and accommodating, the piercers are amazing and we’ve never had any issues. They explain everything and despite always having customers doing larger business they respect our time and needs. I would recommend over anywhere else!

  • 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.

  • review rating 5  Had my tattoo done by John. It was done very well. He is really talented and professional. The studio itself is really nice and clean. The receptionist is welcoming and friendly. This was my first tattoo and I highly recommend this place to anyone who is interested or planning to get a tattoo.
