I have gotten two tattoos by Aaron, A Medusa and Bastet (Egyptian Cat Goddess pictured in this review), and plan to get more on my leg. My husband has gotten so many. We love him. He is professional, caring, and great to work with. He is highly recommended. I saw many reviews of poor customer service, but we have never had a bad experience. 5 ⭐️ s easily.

I had an awesome experience with Hannah! I absolutely love the piece she did for me and I will definitely be back for more work with her. The studio was very clean and welcoming, and prices were fair. Hannah did her best to make sure I was comfortable and left with a great tattoo. I can't thank you enough!

I have nothing but AMAZING things to say about Hope!! I don't think I could have picked a more patient, talented, amazing, creative person to do my very first tattoo!! I told her I wanted my dachshund sitting in a tea cup. I gave her a bunch of pictures of my dog and a few pictures of other artists tea cup tattoos that I liked and she came up with the most perfect design!!!! She was so patient and didn't show any frustration about me wiggling my fingers so much. I'm so smitten with it, I can't stop staring at it!!! She books up really fast and I can see why! She's totally worth the wait!!! Thank you so much Hope!!!!!
