  • review rating 5  I’ve gone to Vanity for all of my tattoos and love it there. Jeff has done every tattoo I have except for one, and all of them turn out amazing. He’s super helpful with designing and placement as well. Everyone that works there is really friendly! I’d never go anywhere else for a tattoo; I’ve never been disappointed. I would highly recommend Vanity Tattoo to anyone.

  • review rating 5  Clean and bright, this is an absolutely professional shop. I can't speak for all the artist, but we saw Johnny. He was very meticulous and well prepared. This is the second tatoo he's done for my wife, and my first from Johnny. He took the ideas that we brought and took the best parts of each and incorporated them into a custom design. He really took his time in setting up, understanding that it's a lifetime deal, perfection matters. And he is a perfectionist!great long straight lines and flawless shading. A true professional. I'd highly recommend him for anything, he's first and foremost an artist, great drawing. And second, a detailed perfectionist. He's not afraid to try new things, but he really takes it with the heavy consequences it deserves. Check this place out!

  • 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.

  • review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  Today was my first time going to this place. I got 2 ear piercings done by Alex. He was very professional, clean, and precise. My piercings turned out exactly how I wanted. And the prices here are more reasonable than any other place I did research on.
