Got my second tattoo done by Stephen Vickers today! As usual, he did an amazing job drawing up a PERFECT design that was above and beyond what I had originally imagined and the actual tattoo turned out beautifully! I love his work and I love this place so much. Stephen is so talented and I definitely can't wait to return for tattoos to be done by him in the future. Worth every cent and every minute spent here.

Went to Charmed Life for my very first tattoo because I heard so many great things about them; and everyone was right! I got my tattoo done in two sessions with Robert; he is A++. I was very nervous but he (and the other artists there) put me at ease. The finished product looks AMAZING. Now I find myself wanting to go get more done!

I got my first tattoo today and everyone was amazing. George did a perfect job and they made me feel very comfortable about getting it before it began. They also made me aware of all things that may happen with a tattoo and gave me a card in order to call or text them with any questions I may have about my new tattoo. If I ever get another I will be going back!!
