The best tattoo experience ever!!!!! Bach was my artist and he was great drew my designs perfectly and made sure I was very comfortable and joked the entire time to keep me distracted. Can't wait till my next tattoo!! Body tech is great and very sterile!!! All supplies were opened right in front of me which as a nurse made me feel safe!! Thank you for such a great experience

I was tattooed by Josh today and it looks awesome! I went in a few days ago to make an appointment and had a reference photo to give the artist an idea of what I wanted. Josh really digged the idea but said he'd make it more realistic and it would look A LOT better then the photo I had. He did not disappoint. The design is great and the colors are very vibrant. He completely understood the vision I had for this piece. Everyone at the shop was very friendly and the shop has great energy.
