Description of service

I finally chose to get my first tattoo and it was amazing. The tattoo was a bit expensive in my opinion, but I guess if you're going to be carrying it around with you for the rest of your life, then it's worth the cost to find a great artist. In total it took about 2 hours to complete. The place I went helped me fine tune my design so it was exactly what I wanted. The final product was a devil surfing around the globe on a surfboard. The cost also included an arm oil to moisturize the tattoo.

Review of Service

I would best describe the shop I used as professional. These people could be full on artists if they wanted. They are so creative it just blew my mind. They helped me figure out the exact placement as well as color choice which I had completely forgotten about. I turned out ten times better than I could imagine. It looked like a personalized cartoon on my arm. I will definitely be back for many more tattoos and will make sure I only get it done at my local shop. I will love my arm art for the rest of my life.


Make sure you have a great idea what you want because it's forever. Let them help you because they are the artists and may have a better idea to make your art look great for years.
