" has provided me with 12 tattoos over last 3 months. He has been in business for just over 6 years. They are always busy, having to book" 2 months in advance to use the owner, , for your services. All four of the artists are great at what they do! is an award winning tattoo artist, and the people that work for him are very good in the styles that they provide, and each one can provide multiple styles. They always make sure you are satisfied with not only your tattoo, but the service they provided. I always get what I asked, and always leave happy.

Body Piercing And Tattoo Shop reviews in Virginia Beach


Work came out decent The leaves faded brown though! I Say decent because I've seen Worse. I was quoted $200-250 and i was told it would take up to 2 and a half hours. I literally got there at 1 and didnt leave till 8 oclock!! I told him i had to work at 5 oclock and he just took his sweet time which yes is great in some way but he should have been ...More honest about how long it would take and the price he ended up charging $450 and i said nothing and paid it and gave him a $50 tip but afterwards im like i really got ripped off!! Plus my boss was p***** at me for being 3 hours late ! Everyone says the tattoos a nice tattoo but definitely not worth $500 dollars ! I would recommend going somewhere else because its very uncomfortable to have to there for that long!

1. Clean modern shop. Private tattoo rooms available. Air conditioned.

2. **Professional** and friendly staff. On time. Willing to work with you to give you your dream design. Patient with newbies.

3. Talented artists delivering superb work. Listen to your artist! Their suggestions are based on experience.

4. ...More Do not be a d***** about the price. Each tattoo is different for many reasons including difficulty, placement and time. You get what you pay for. See the first sentence of #3!!!

I had an awesome experience getting my first tattoo across my chest and sternum. is an artist and he elevated my idea to something I will for the rest of my life.
- Liza W.

The day of the appointment I was ready. The office is very clean and pleasant. introduced herself and made me feel very comfortable. I like her. She asked me what I was looking to do - what shape I wanted, etc. and she showed me before/after pictures of previous clients.

She spent some time drawing eyebrows on ...More me so I could see what she was planning to do and did I have any concerns? want any changes? I loved what she had drawn so she brought out her measurement tools to get ready for the real thing.

Every move she made was explained before she did it. How the numbing stuff would work, how the brows were individually drawn on. I was never left to wonder just what she was doing. It was comforting.

She did a terriffic job. I love having eyebrows again! I plan to go back to her for a touch up when the pigment starts fading.

Highly recommended.

I have gone to V. before and was recommended to him through a mutual friend. He is very professional, he's nice, and he always does a great job. On top of that, he is honest with his clients and will them from making anything other than the best choice for their piercing. When I wanted to change the ...More jewelry, I stopped in and purchased the new one and he very quickly changed them out. He also is continually working on improving his methods, and goes to classes and workshops to be the best. I will forever go back to for any of my piercing needs or questions!!!!

I walked in and asked if they could create a tattoo from a picture I had on my phone. , who was at the reception desk asked me to send the photo to their email. He took it and basically traced out the design in about 10 minutes. Loved what he did so he got his stuff together and gave me the tattoo on the spot. Took about ...More 1 hour and I'm very pleased with how it turned out. I got a tattoo done 2 years ago there and that's why I went back to them.

Very professional. They ask about my input my expectations, the really listened. They took the time to draw the brows on beforehand and fine toon them before getting permanent. Always making sure I was comfortable with the shame color. And then when it came time for the tattoo the took the time to make sure I was numb.
What a great experience.
- Karen L.

Amazing! My piercer was . I told her what I wanted, and she let me pick my jewelry. She was super friendly. She chatted to me, and warned me about how much my eyes will (and did! water) and advised me on how to care for the piercing. was very professional! I watched her put on gloves, open the new needles, ...More where the piercing will go and she talked to me the entire time.
It was amazing. Before I left, she gave me instructions on caring for the piercing and even gave me a cup of sea salt for the cleaning. For free!! I've been to parlors that actually try sell you a spray can of sea salt and water.
- Jazmine S.

This was my first tattoo and told by friends rather large for a first tattoo.(debatable) but yes my first tattoo.
So I did all my research on what to look for in a tattoo shop and a tattoo artist.
A big plus for me was I had seen 's work on someone and also looked at his online portfolio. ...More was highly recommended as the tattoo artist to use at this shop. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to question why this person was recommending at the shop. Everything I was told about was true. He is professional, takes pride in his work,very calm, will work with you on creating a tattoo design you will enjoy and has been doing tattoos for many years.

My Tattoo took about 2-2.5 hours including a break. In the beginning told me I could take as many breaks as I wanted. I was surprised that the one break was sufficient. I was very much at ease and comfortable. My Tattoo starts around my wrist, flows down my forearm and slightly around my elbow. Just on one side of my arm forearm and includes multiple colors.
Family, friends and "strangers" compliment me on the detail the tattoo artist put into the tattoo, the colors and the design.
I strictly followed the instructions on how to care for a new tattoo and surprised that as the tattoo healed the colors were more brilliant. One thing I read and remembered -- A new Tattoo is an open wound and needs to heal without being covered. Clean your hands often when applying goo and lotion. I used Tattoo Goo Anti Bactria soap and tattoo Goo gel for the healing process. After day 9 I added the Tattoo Goo after care lotion instead of only the tattoo goo gel. I am only writing this to let you know how my tattoo healed. Other people swear by other products. My feeling is what ever works best for you.
I mention to that I had read about and purchased the Tattoo Goo product. He was familiar with the product and recommended that I coat the healing tattoo lightly with the gel or lotion.
What else can I say except I love my unique designed tattoo. is very experienced, a gentle tattooer not heavy handed,
and a tattoo artist I would recommend if you want a good quality tattoo and a nice tattoo experience.
