Dave was awesome, from a friendly phone call the day before resulting in a very easy going walk-in appointment (I am from out of town). The guy at the front desk was attentive and friendly and Dave reassured me despite my fear of my first tattoo. The overall experience was great and I absolutely love my tattoo! I highly recommend this shop for a friendly and professional atmosphere!

Such a phenomenal place. I got my first tattoo & my experience was nothing short of amazing. The staff was super friendly, very informative, & professional (that really helps to make you feel a lot better about getting a tat for the first time). Each artist is extremely talented so I can reassure u that you'll be in good hands whoever you are with! The artist Kylee did mine & she did an amazing job. I am so in love. Wish I could show a pic lol but I don't think this will let me do it

Love, love, love everything about Shavon and her shop! This was my very first time getting a tattoo and I couldn't be more pleased. Shavon drew exactly what I wanted and the tattoo came out perfectly! I don't think I could go anywhere else now. Shavon's Purple Lotus Tattoo is simply the best. Quality work and quality ink.
