  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!
