Testimonials

  • 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.

  • Jeff did an amazing tattoo for my sister and I. We got matching tattoos. Great price and the quality of his tattoos are unbelievable. I am planning on getting a sleeve done and he will be my guy for that. Highly recommended.

  • 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!

  • 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.
