PORT CITY TATTOO REVIEWS
I got this tattoo in August & it still looks amazing. I spent $160 for a pine tree which is two inches tall & roughly one inch wide. This is exactly what I wanted it to look like. It wasn’t very painful. (I’m not sure if that’s because I have a high pain tolerance, or if the artist knew how to make it less painful, or both.) I would definitely get a tattoo from here again.
Been here twice to get tattoos and very pleased with how they look. Both times the crew was friendly, personable, and talented. Prices were reasonable and I was able to be seen same day which made things easier for my schedule. Will definitely come back for my next tattoo.
This was my 1st tattoo by Damien King and it was great! It only took around 33 minutes and had little to no pain. I will definitely get another tattoo from Port city!.

OUTER LIMITS TATTOO REVIEWS
Hands down best tattoo shop I've ever been to. Everyone there is so amazing and supportive of eachothers work. I got a large original piece drawn by Jason and he made the whole experience worth it. His detail and shading work are insanely high level. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a high end tattoo. The colors are vibrant and the detail work is unbelievable. I still have 1 more session to go before this is all done and I can't wait to start planning my next one.
One of the most beautiful place of the US due to the strong dedication of Kari and the team to the tattoo History. Kyle will give you the best welcome in the shop. Jose will provide you finest tattoo with kindness and joy. All the team around gives you little attentions while enjoying your Time there. 100% in love with this tattoo parlor.
Super professional, top of the line Tattoo shop and museum. Excellent art, great customer service from Matt and Kari is an absolute legend in the industry. 5 Stars isnt even close to enough.

PAPER CRANE STUDIO REVIEWS
I've gotten pieces from Joy and Suzanne and am getting a piece from Don next week. My goal is to get work from every artist here. They're that good. Mikey's crew not only produces beautiful work, they are incredibly genuine and passionate humans that are a delight to spend any amount of time with. You can feel how much love is put into this place from the moment you walk through the door. Truly, I couldn't recommend them enough.
Mikey did a fabulous tattoo on my arm...he's a very nice Guy that cares about his customers..I love the bunny tattoo, it is so awesome...also it heals so fast... The studio is very clean and the people who work there are all very kind and it is a very great atmosphere. I would for sure come back and get another tattoo when I am back in Long Beach one day! Thank you Mikey!!!.
I absolutely loved Mikey’s work. He came up with an idea that I would never have come up with and I would never have gotten what he gave me without giving him the artistic license.
