Testimonials

  • 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  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 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  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.
