Testimonials

  • 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  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  I absolutely love this place and would recommend it to anyone! John did my tattoo and I am absolutely in love with it. His artwork is beautiful, he does very clean, neat work, and makes you feel so comfortable. The rest of the artists are all very nice as well, and April is a sweetheart. I will definitely be back very soon for my next one.

  • 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.
