Fatty's Tattoos & Piercings Dupont Circle: what do users think?


Precious King: So, I’m not happy at all with my piercing. For $80 for an industrial piercing and for it not to come out right is upsetting. They do not have a large enough jewelry selection. Better bring your own, plus the little jewelry that they do have is around $30. You can order new jewelry from Body Candy.com or Amazon for 2/3 less price. Overall I’d suggest going elsewhere. Like I said the piercing wasn’t to my liking and now I have to have it redone. That’s more money and another two weeks of agonizing pain. Ugggh !!!!!

Jonnekia Ellison: I am blown away at just HOW OUTSTANDING the services were that I received from Michael and Mikey. I am from Florida and were visiting for the New Year. I was able to easily book an appointment for tattoos and a nostril piercing (my first) and chat with them on the customer portal beforehand. The pricing was very fair but honestly for the quality, I feel like they aren’t charging enough. Michael is hands down the BEST piercer. He was very knowledgeable, gave me supplies to clean my piercing until I made it home, and made the whole process quick and easy. I am scared of needles, funny to say, but I could barely tell he had started. He made me feel at ease and gave every customer (I watched at least 5 come in while I was being tattooed) that walked in after me the same level of stellar customer service. He listened to everyone’s wishes, gave his expert opinion on what the safest options were and pierced them at the perfect angle. Quick, easy and almost painless. Their implant grade jewelry is the best for piercings and I liked that it wasn’t about selling you some flashy expensive jewelry piece, but more of what is better for the healing process with their stock. Mikey did my tattoos and he is truly an incredible artist. My first tattoo was done carelessly and he was able to redo it while making it look fantastic. He did other cutesy tattoos for me (heart, flower, script rib tattoo, crescent moon) and he did them with such ease and precision and with the right tools to get the job done as painless as possible. He mentioned that he has been doing tattoos for 22 years and you can REALLY tell. My favorite part was how down to earth he is. If you want input on a tattoo design or what will work best, he’s there for it. He won’t shoo you out the door like most artists who just want to give you a quick tattoo. He made me feel calm and comfortable, like I could really be myself, and as a person who struggles with anxiety, I really appreciated that. It is now day 3 and I have no pain from my nostril piercing or four tattoos. I am also the biggest baby when it comes to pain lol. I HIGHLY recommend visiting their shop and are certainly considering driving 13 hours back there for any other piercings or tattoos that I want in the future. Service: Nose piercing

A. Burton Tripathi: Worked with Brian. Extremely professional, including first class hygiene and sterile practices. He is a brilliant artist. Brought my idea to life with more energy and impact than I could have imagined. Extremely clean lines. Very slick shading, color gradients, and highlighting. Absolutely tremendous! Getting signed up with an artist at Fatty's is a little weird. The shop is locked at all times. They don't take walk-ins and they don't answer the phone. You have to fill out the request sheet on their website. Then wait for them to contact you back on that page. Set up a time and go in for a consult. Artists might be late or no-show (rarely), so you need to have patience and be persistent. At the consult, you meet in person and discuss the project. They give you a price and an appointment. Come back at that second time to have the work performed and prepare to be amazed! Highly recommended.

Tyler Mates: I have got two great cover up’s from James (who’s no longer there) and the front desk gentleman is so nice! I’ve seen great work from the other artists. Make sure to book your appointment online first and get your quote, there is no phone service anymore

Demeris Morse: Tried to call all three locations and nobody picked up. The online appointment system also took multiple hours to get a response. I was just looking for a simple jewelry change and purchase, which shouldn’t require a laborious online system and lack of communication.

Catherine Cassell: I was recommended Fatty’s by a piercer of mine in another city and I happened to be in the area and walked in without an appointment. Dani had some time and took me immediately! I already had a piece of jewelry with me that I needed to get pierced and she immediately had it sanitized and pierced! She was incredibly kind and my piercing looks amazing. Will likely be coming back for a new piercing once this one heals :)

Tiff: Ladies, do yourself a huge favor and avoid this shop. I booked an appointment at this location because my usual piercing shop isn’t doing under-the-mask piercings, so Michael reached out to me and accepted my request immediately. But when I tell you how uncomfortable this man made me feel… please. Go elsewhere. He did an amazing job on my piercings BUT he will harass you and give you his number to try to get you to go on a date with him. Don’t do it. Go to Brilliance Piercing in Vienna, VA instead.

Angel Thompson: Danni the piercer is awesome and quick!!. I had my gauges upsized. It was painless and inexpensive. She knows her stuff and guides you to the right way of getting pierced. Thank you!!!

Shelley: Great experience. I deferred to their expertise on the size and location of my nose piercing, and I'm so glad I did. I love it! It was quick and easy.

Evie M: Despite my flighty arrival, Matt was patient & kind, not only with me, also with the flood of people who came in immediately after (weirdly lots of daiths) & the people on the phone AND was helpful in his (excellent & appropriate) suggestions & guidance to a person wanting a tattoo but non-committal in her aesthetic tastes. Michelle(? god I hope that's right) did 2 piercings for me that I already love, and was such great fun to talk with, the kind of person whom you just...would pay to talk to or be your friend. Like therapists wish they were. She did EXCELLENT technical work & was respectful, informative, and as sterile as you should expect a piercer to be, maybe more. I'll be back.

Tattoo Paradise: what do users think?


Miranda Cross: Nate and the entire staff at Tattoo Paradise are amazing— I have gotten 2 tattoos done here and both have been phenomenal experiences. The shop is clean and reasonably priced for DC. My first tattoo was of a handwriting sample and Nate was able to do it within a week after I emailed the contact form on the website to set a date. The second piece was an addition to an existing tattoo (picture) and Nate did an absolutely stunning job matching the new art to old with a combo of pre-done design and freehand drawn leaves and stems to integrate the two tattoos. I was able to work the design out with him in advance via email. The staff is entirely professional and kind— their piercer even took the time to explain what had gone wrong with a previous cartilage piercing I had done (not at tattoo parlor) and give me some suggestions for fixing it. If you are local or visiting I would highly highly recommend this shop, especially if you email them with availability in advance.
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words Miranda, we appreciate it so much! We are so glad you love your new tattoo and hope to see you soon.

Alex Riesner: Tattoo paradise was pretty exciting. My girlfriend and I went there to get our nipples pierced. We were referred to this place from another Tattoo shop and I was throughly happy with my experience here. The shop itself is pretty small and when I called I was told that piercing is not a booked appointment but a walk-in, first come first served situation. Absolutely fine, we come in on Monday and the shop looks phenomenal! Art on the walls and jewelry in cases, very clean and fun to look at. I fill out the paperwork and we are seen in no time at all. The woman the pierced us was extremely polite and respectful. She was professional throughout the whole experience, going over how to clean and maintain everything, what to do and what not to do and how long it would take to heal. Once we were done, it was a smooth recovery process from there. I would 100% recommend coming here again.

Meg: I got my very first tattoo here and it was absolutly lovely!! Ben at the front desk was so welcoming and helpful and a really cool guy. I was a walk in and it was so easy to schedule and get my tattoo. My tattoo was done by Sam who was so kind and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. I'll be sure to get every tattoo here from now on. Def worth every cent Service: Tattoos
Response: Thanks Meg! Sam and Ben were super happy to hear this! Hope to see you soon for your next tattoo

Kolton Whitmire: Alejandro is a visiting artist there who did my tattoo. I started getting light headed right away and he was very accommodating and checked in periodically throughout the tattoo to make sure I didn't pass out. He also gave me good suggestions on tattoo placement and size that I really appreciated. All around this shop is great.Service: Tattoos
Response: Hey Kolton Thanks for leaving a review! We will definitely pass this along to Alejandro.

Adriana B.: Was not even able to have a chance to use this business. They lost at least $400 tonight. Extremely disappointed. My friends and I came to DC for a couple days and wanted to get a tattoo. We stopped by around 2:30pm and the front desk guy, Drew told us to come back at 8pm but that he'd call me back if anything changed. I didn't receive any call or text all day, so we stayed somewhat local, showed up at 8 just for him to tell us sorry, they couldn't accommodate us. I asked why he didn't call or text like he said he would. He just shrugged it off and said sorry. Very disappointed because if we knew we wouldn't be able to get our work done there, we could have made it somewhere else at an earlier time. It's our last day in town and he knew this. Follow-up should've happened, it was a very easy task. Now we're calling all the local shops and they're closed.
Response: Hey Adriana, We are sorry to hear of your negative experience. When you come as a walk-in, spots are given on first come first served, and are never guaranteed. Because our booked appointments ran longer than expected none of our artists had enough time to tattoo your party. In the future feel free to set up an appointment by phone or email. We apologize for any miscommunication from our staff regarding our policies. Tattoo Paradise

Brandon Sousa: I went here for an ear piercing and had a great experience. Patti is an excellent piercer, very professional, fast, seemed like going to a capable physician rather than a body piercing. Cost seemed fairly high but I’m sure I’m just unfamiliar with piercing costs — it was $110 and a $20 tip for standard ear lobe piercings. The shop itself is clean but not very well-appointed. Just a large open space with a tiny bench for waiting by the window.
Response: Hey Brandon, Thanks for leaving a review, we appreciate it!

Kera: Straight weirdo behavior & a very incompetent front desk person. Doesn’t know prices/jewelry sizing. Kept questioning my knowledge of my OWN body anatomy. I know exactly what I came in there for & what size I ALREADY have in/want. Wasted an hour of my day/time waiting for the piercer that never came out to service us. Mind you, we’ve been calling for weeks and even came in person to receive piercings and she’d NEVER be there. Bad experience all around. Unprofessional and awkward customer service. From ALL STAFF.

Alexander Oaks: Amazing shop! Serious legends have worked here and still do! Flashworks amaiZng. Old school traditional azimg tooo!
Response: Hey Alexander. Thanks for the compliment! We appreciate you tons, and hope to see you again soon!

Ariel Goldberger: Terrible service, front desk staff are arrogant and cannot give you a quote until they make you wait for 45+ mins, then another 90 mins to actually get a tattoo. Getting a tattoo is also an experience - they don't understand thus they ruin it, also they don't allow you to take pictures, to what? I don't know the walls are full of low quality design anyway

Courtney Chrisman: Just got another tattoo here all by Trevor, fantastic experiences each time, I’m in love with my ink! But I also wanted to take a moment to say how well I think they’re handling being reopen in the pandemic. Appointments only keep it to only a few people inside at once, everything clean and sanitized. While waiting I overheard the piercer explaining to another client how to care new nose or earring while wearing masks every day which I loved!

Globe Electric Tattoo: what do users think?


David Harris: I can’t recommend Globe Electric highly enough. I just got my 3rd tattoo from Eric, my 10th tattoo overall. In terms of professionalism and overall quality Eric is easily the best artist I’ve worked with. It requires some patience to get on their schedule - but worth it, in my opinion, for something that’ll be on your body forever. I don’t know what tattoo will be next, or when, but I’m sure I’ll get it from Globe Electric. Thanks Eric!

Michael: Eric is the epitome of professional! He will give it to you straight, and be upfront. If he can't do it, he will tell you he cannot do it. That is very much appreciated in this industry. He is so good he started my sleeve and I loved it to so much I had him to my anniversary gift for my husband. Great shop, amazing artist!Service: Tattoos

Peter Jorgensen: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, QualityI had the best experience with Susan. Truly a fantastic artist and individual from start to finish. I cannot articulate how lucky I felt to have booked an appointment with her! They are more than worth the wait!Service: Tattoos

Julia Rigolage: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, ValueSuch a calm and professional atmosphere. Felt completely comfortable from the second I walked in. Susan and Eric are definitely doing everything right! Can’t wait for my next tattoo! Susan did a stellar job with my botanical request and made sure it was what I wanted.

Tyler Larish: Eric has been tattooing me for the better part of the last decade #2020. I’ve been tattooed by different people in different countries. Different styles, different techniques. My first appt with Eric was a walk in Georgetown a few years back. We vibed. He made me comfortable. It was a solid connection. This was the first time I felt that comfortable in a tattoo studio. I work in the service industry, and I respect so much creating a comfortable/ clean/ professional space for people to practice their creative passion. The full experience. All of my recommendations have had a similar experience at Globe Electric. I’m grateful to have made this connection. It’s really nice to have a solid connection to the person tattooing you. In turn, we’ve created something that truly is mine. Thank you Eric.

Ana Aragon: Professionalism and art in one place!! I have been tattooing for many years and in different cities in the US. Globe Electric Tattoo is the best tattoo studio and Susan tattooed a beautiful and real piece of art. It is most beautiful tattoo I have. Thank you Susan!! The entire experience of getting a tattoo at Globe was great! From first appointment to after care. The studio is nice and smell like fresh paint. I highly recommend it.

John Filippone: I’ve waited over a decade to finally get my first tattoo. And there was never a doubt of who I wanted to do the work. I’ve known, followed, and admired Eric Doyle from a distance for a long time. He has done work on some of my closest friends and family over the years and I’ve never heard a bad thing from anyone and Everything was top quality work. As a rookie and being a bit older, I was a bit nervous at first, but Eric has helped me through this process every step of the way. He has welcomed me, made me feel comfortable and helped make my vision come to life. His shop is immaculate and his work is world class. I could not recommend him any more highly than I do, and I look forward to finishing my current project and then to start working on new projects in the future. Cheers to you sir, well done.

Larry Dumlao: Magnificent! First, the studio is unlike any other studio I've seen. It has a relaxing, yet professional feel to it. As soon as you enter, you can see the attention to detail, whether it's the hidden pocket doors that can be used to isolate your particular studio for complete privacy, the amazing art on the walls, or the cleanliness of the setup. This is a place where truly stunning body art is created. Second, Eric is incredible, both as an artist and a person. The examples on the site speak for themselves and the same attention that is present in the studio's design is meticulously applied to Eric's work. You may have to book several months, out, but it is worth the wait.

Steve E.: This is an awesome shop owned by a married couple who have both been tattoo artists for decades. I am in the process of getting a tattoo by Fernando Prudencio here, and the whole process has been great. He has taken a lot of time to ensure I am really happy with the design and end result. I have only had one other tattoo experience to date, but based on this one experience I highly recommend all the artists in this shop as their line work and creativity are traits all looking for a tattoo should have at the top of their lists. The atmosphere is relaxing with privacy, very clean environment, good music, and accessible location. This shop is appointment only as well, so you don't have to worry or be distracted by people walking in and out the whole time. I may post a photo once the tattoo is completed, but I need two more sessions at this point.

FontLeRoi Haberdasheri: Welcome surprise to have tattoos done at Globe! The soothing ambience, personable atmosphere and setup are second to none! Eric & Sue do not disappoint. Their extensive knowledge of their craft and excellent work makes this a must visit spot. Eric has done a total of 5 tats for me so far.

Embassy Tattoo: what do users think?


Emily J.: I got my first tattoo here, Roman was my artist and he was incredible. He answered all my questions and didn't rush me while I was making decisions about the design and the placement. When we began he told me to take deep breaths and eased me into it. I am in love with the result! Setting up the appointment was a bit of a hassle because they are busy but totally worth it. I will absolutely be coming back!

Avery Johnson: This past weekend I went in to get my first tattoo and I was extremely excited about it because it was my birthday too. I walked in with my friends (we are all African-American) and we quietly waited in the lobby. At first the team were really great to us and we got to chat with the artist, the other POC staff were really great and I was genuinely excited, but then a white woman with red hair entered the space. The other receptionist asked her how her jog was so we assumed she worked there, so no issue. She scanned the room and approached us and asked that my friends leave because the lobby area had become "too busy". 'Too busy" or "too black"? My friends respected the request and left. A few minutes later, a group of white girls entered the shop and only one was being serviced but the white woman with red hair had no issue with their group being in the lobby with no masks. So somehow the black group made it busier? That whole situation made me feel uncomfortable so I left, we shouldn't have to act like we are back in Jim Crow times when we are paying for a service. Do better. Service: Tattoos

Tyler Mates: The gentleman who just arrived from Venezuela 🇻🇪 was SO GOOD. He had great energy, vibes and earthly conversation was out of this world 🗺 . I got the tattoo of my dreams. Of my best friend Ollie! Minimal style from a logo I already got. I was pleased with the turnout, price and service going in on standby. The logo was mine and it’s now on my skin for life! I forgot your name but thank you to the moon and back

Andrea Sevilla: I emailed them to get a quote for a tattoo but the artists I wanted weren’t available which is okay so I decided to go with Lola since she had openings. She wanted to do a video call or FaceTime to discuss further but when the day of the appointment came she didn’t reach out. I didn’t receive a call or an email to reschedule so I emailed them to do so. The second time I also got stood up by the artist and didn’t get any notification about it or an apology, no explanation as to why she hadn’t reached out to me both times either. They called me a week later wanting to reschedule for the third time but at that point I had completely lost any interest in her as an artist because it doesn’t really matter how good you are, you can’t be unprofessional and stand up people twice and expect them to still want to work with you. I’m sure she’s talented but I can’t give my money and trust to someone that doesn’t have any sort of respect my time.

marina castaneda: Roman pierced my nipples and did an amazing job, he took his time and did not make me feel rushed with the process at all. He took his time with my questions and understood my circumstances and was letting me decide if it was what I really wanted to get done. He also did two of friends nipples as well and they said nothing but good things to say about him. If you want someone to trust, go with Roman. He is NOT a creep, doesn’t make you feel rushed and lets you ask any questions you may have. Thanks Roman!

Shiera Grant: They’re extremely unprofessional and made me feel very uncomfortable and unwanted. My small tattoo had so much blowout, they did a terrible job. Please spend your hard earned money somewhere elseService: Tattoos

Nabeelah Muhammad: I came in for a simple tattoo of my birthyear. The tattoo was a dark blue/indigo shade. But after a few weeks the tattoo was completely faded and the numbers are not shaded in solidly. I was told my dark skin was the problem and that I chose a "bright" color. The artist admitted she may have overworked the tattoo. I came in for a touch up after spending more than 3 weeks trying to get scheduled. The receptionist were rude and ignored my emails and did not return my calls. It seems these artists don't know how to work on dark skin which is sad since their shop is in a predominantly black and Latino neighborhood. Service: Tattoos

Nicholas Daou: Tried to schedule an appointment with Lola, she flaked. I reached out to the shop who apologized and then I was assured she wouldn’t flake on the next consult FaceTime. Surprise surprise, she flaked and didn’t even answer the receptionist who tried to get ahold of her. She pulled a similar thing on a friend of mine, actually skipping a session and not just a consult call. Definitely not impressed and going to have to find a different shop to go to.

Amber Nicole: This shop is dangerous to BIPOC and exhibits many concerning racist behaviors toward black patrons. The front desk worker is hostile and the staff are incompetent on how to tattoo black and brown skin. This is a basic standard skill any artist should be well trained in, especially in a neighborhood that is predominantly black and Latinx. The lack of this shows a blatant refusal to adapt to the times and treat people with basic kindness and dignity.

Esther Makonnen: Second time visiting Embassy tattoo. The shop was very clean and customer service was excellent. Roman was my Tattoo artist he was very patient very friendly. I Absolutely love my chakra tattoo so thank you thank you Roman😊😊😊😊Service: Tattoos

Wasteland Tattoos: what do users think?


Britta Buchanan: I go my tattoo in December 2016. Absolute tattoo newbie here. I went to Laughing Hyena because it had excellent reviews online and happened to be close to my apartment, and it did not disappoint. I worked with Isaac, who was friendly, down-to-earth, and knew exactly what he was doing. He drew up my design in two minutes and my tattoo was done in another two minutes. Since he knew this was my first tattoo, he gave me very clear instructions and advice for caring for it. He also guided me along in the tattoo process, emphasizing the sanitary measures Laughing Hyena always takes, and giving me tips for what to look for in a high quality tattoo shops for future reference. I was a bit nervous about getting my first tattoo and wanted to make sure I was going to an establishment that took their work and their customers seriously. I found both of those qualities in Laughing Hyena and would definitely go there again/recommend it to others.

Brittany L: My friend and I came here for our second and third tattoos, respectively. We came in for a consult with Doctor Z in May and made appointment for today (June 12). We didn't see our art until we arrived but he didn't disappoint! I selected a cross-stitch design, which isn't an easy thing to do. He was honest about how this was only his second one in ten years of tattooing but he did an amazing job. He had four options for me in terms of design and waited patiently while I hemmed and hawed before deciding. So thrilled; he definitely has found a life-long customer in me. As others have mentioned, the shop is cash only but is close to many banks in Columbia Heights. Ignore the purple in the photo, that's just the stencil.

Marc Jause: Critical: ProfessionalismOne of the Artist Isaac Colon is very non professional and has scammed me out of my money. He did not fulfill his obligations and was very deceptive. Stay clear of this guy, as he's not a guy you can trust unfortunately.

Abbie Ginis: I did tons of research on tattoos and studios before I finally settled on Hyena Tattoos, with Chris as my artist. This was my first tattoo, so I really appreciated how they offer a free consultation ahead of the appointment. It gave me a chance to meet the artist and discuss my ideas. And, looking back, even though I don't think I described what I wanted very well, Chris somehow created something totally unique for me. When I came in day of, we worked together to tweak the design until it was exactly what I wanted. The studio is clean, and Chris made sure to walk me through each step of the process while he was preparing me for the tattoo. I could go on and on, but I'm really happy with how this experience went and I'd definitely come back again!!

Kristen Vann: I had an amazing experience from the consultation to the getting my tattoo done. Dr. Z did an amazing Job on my tattoo! He worked fairly quick and was very professional. I love the end result. Try shop was very chill and the other artists there were entertaining and made you feel welcomed. I will be going for my next tattoo!

H M: I just got my first tattoo here and had a WONDERFUL experience. Chris, the artist I worked with, was very friendly and worked with me to find a design I was really happy with. He explained each step of the process as we went along so I knew exactly what to expect. I couldn't be happier with my new tattoo and am definitely going to come back and get another in my future. I definitely recommend Laughing Hyena Tattoos!

Monteia Goodwin: This was my 1st tattoo. Chris did a great job helping me feel comfortable. I gave him some general designs, he took my ideas created a beautiful design. The shop was moving locations in between my sessions, but they managed to keep everything spotless during the move. Already recommended this spot to a few coworkers. Thanks again Chris.

Daniella Constantin: Man this was my first time at this place and it was great from the time I walked in. Very organize and the tattoo artist really know what they are doing and everyone was great. I love my tattoo my guy knew exactly how to bring my vision to life. Thank you Raff!!!

Luna Blanc: Very talented tattoo artists. I've been to the shop several times, and ever since I got my first piece by Isaac, I haven't been anywhere else. So far I've gotten two half sleeves and a chest piece. Every time I go, they're super friendly, the shop is pretty clean, and I always have a great experience getting tatted there. I super recommend this place! if you're looking to get the most awesome tattoos you can get, go to Laughing Hyena :)
Response: Thanks Carolina, Its always a pleasure to have you in the shop. We look forward to your next visit.

Phil Winston: This place is great! Super clean and client friendly. The staff are knowledgeable, and the vibe is laid back. This was my first time at the shop, and Maria was my artist. She was awesome throughout the entire process - engaged from the initial consult all the way to the final product. She gave great feedback around tattoo designs and was committed to making sure I walked away loving the work - and I did! Thanks again, Maria! Cheers!

Jinx Proof Tattoos: what do users think?


Charlotte Somol: Super easy setting up an appointment, quick response time, and giving me an estimated price range based on the photos I sent. The people at the shop were very friendly and welcoming. Nico did my tattoo which was a relatively simple piece on my neck. He was very helpful as it was my first time getting a tattoo done and the process was very quick and easy. Very clean and sanitized area and barely hurt at all. Gave me lots of aftercare advice and the whole process was done in about 30-40 minutes. Highly recommend!

Skye Curry: Was planning on just walking around a bit after dinner, but saw this place and on a limb decided to go in and get a tattoo! The staff and atmosphere there was amazing and everyone was very nice. First time getting a tattoo and decided to do something very simple and small, and they went with it! Victor at the front was very welcoming and Nico, who did my tattoo, was very sweet and walked me through the whole thing! Quick, easy, and definitely worth it (: Service: Tattoos

Chelsea Kennedy: I’m so thankful for my experience at Jinx Proof. Nico was so patient with me and adjusted the stencil for me more times than most would find reasonable. The meaning behind this tattoo had a lot of emotion attached to it and I am so happy with how it turned out. The process was painless and the people in the shop were friendly! Sharing pictures from immediately after and 2 weeks healed. I’ll definitely go back to Nico for more work! Service: Tattoos

Trevor Luciani: I have gotten 11 tattoos from Jinx Proof in the past three years and do not have enough nice things to say about them. They are always honest about tattoo art, and will tell you if it is in an area that will make it fade or something they are not comfortable doing. They make sure that the tattoo they are gonna give if is the best. In specific, Tad Peyton at Jinx is probably one of the nicest people I have met. Not only an amazing artist, but a great guy as well. This is the place to go for any tattoo, piercing, etc! Service: Tattoos

Shruti Murali: Had a wonderful experience. Got my nose pierced and was in and out in 15 minutes. Karl was amazing - professional and friendly. Would highly recommend.Service: Nose piercing

Mallory Jones: I was strolling down M st and popped in with the goal to buy new a nose ring. I had gotten my nose pierced 6 months ago, but it wasn’t healing as I expected. As i was looking in the jewelry counter, Karl offered to help me. I shared with her my desires to switch out my ring and that when she told me that I had what they call a “piercing pimple”. She gave me advice on how to fix it and told me to come back and see her in a month if it wasn’t better. I saw improvements in just ONE WEEK and couldn’t be happier. I will go to Karl for all of my future piercings as I completely trust her to take care of me from beginning to end. Service: Piercings

Anya Sutor: They did an amazing job with my tattoo! They went out of their way to schedule me and everyone was so polite and professional to work with! I 10000% would go back again

Diane Hoover: Great tattoo parlor in DC. This is the second one I have gotten here, and I will get a third here. I highly recommend Jinx Proof to one and all.

Georgie Capotis: Went in to schedule a small tattoo and they could see me as a walk in. I worked with Nico and he was so patient and nice! It was my first tattoo so he walked me through every step and was so pleasant and easy to talk to. The shop is clean, the staff is nice, and I had an extremely positive experience.Service: Tattoos

Matt Goodrich: Went in for a walk in today - Nico was amazing! Second time getting a tattoo here and there's a reason it's the longest running tattoo shop in DC! If you want something big or small, this is the place to go. Friendly artists. Clean and bright studio. Will be going back for more later! And again, Nico was fantastic!

Electric Cat Scratch Tattoos: what do users think?


Rachel L: I’m so glad I was able to get into ECS! Sarah completed my little sun/ocean tattoo and did an incredible job. The shop was super clean, priced well and everyone was so so nice. I am obsessed with my tattoo she did an amazing job :) thank you so much!!!!

Olabisi Odediran: I went to get matching tattoos with my sister this past Saturday and not only was I pleased with my tattoo, but I was thoroughly pleased with the service. I was nervous because It was my first tattoo and Brian did everything to assure I was comfortable and we had great conversation the whole time ! Everyone that works in the shop are super sweet and accommodating. I would definitely go back again and also recommend this place to anyone. Thanks again ! Service: Tattoos

buildinghead: this place is fantastic. my eighth tattoo - wonderful conversation, great art, knowledgeable artists, cool atmosphere, good music... i can't say enough good things. Brian is sick, i highly recommend. the new tat is the dark angel, music one was already there

Victoria Anne: The tattoo artists were really nice and accommodating to my friend and I being walk-ins. The shop is also very sanitary and I was impressed with how thorough they were with cleaning. I was however a bit disappointed in a couple of things: 1. We weren't told the shop minimum being $100 before we got the tattoos. My friend and I both got a matching tattoo that took the artist no more than 20 minutes to complete for us. I didn't feel the tattoo itself was worth $100. 2. As my tattoo is healing, I am noticing that the details of my tattoo aren't the way I wanted. Lines aren't straight, the color wasn't fully colored in in so parts of the tattoo look weirdly faded, and some lines weren't finished. I'm unfortunately going to have to get the tattoo fixed at some point to fix the lines as well as the coloring in the tattoo.

Racquelle White: 100% loved Brians work. I asked him to design a cover up tattoo for me and he told me he was confident in his work and I was not disappointed. For my 2nd consultation, I ended up getting the tattoo because it was so good and he was such a good artist and he offered good customer experience. At the end of the day, he also offered me a very competitive price so I would definitely go back and recommend for any person.

Jenny Coyne: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, ValueSarah is an incredible artist, with a great vision. She’s super precise, my tattoos are perfect - and one of a kind . I adore my tattoos. I would 100 percent recommend you to go to this shop- clean, good atmosphere, and highly talented artists

Gaby Cruz: I got my first tattoo here and it was the best thing ever!! Brian did my tattoo and he was so patient and supportive. He did an awesome job. I love it so much. I wished I lived in the area so I could here more often.

Min Mosc: I love this place!! Super clean, friendly, professional and overall great vibes. I got a little triangle tattoo and the lines are so fine and perfectly aligned in the center of my bicep. Sheila did a fantastic job and was incredibly passionate about her art and her job! Cannot emphasize enough how great Sheila is and the whole shop! Definitely my new go to tattoo parlor!

K B: I love this place. I love the atmosphere, quality of work and most importantly, I love the people. I’ve been to two other shops in the city and this is the only one I’ve come back to again a and again. Brian truly delivers- I only ever have a baseline idea of what I want and he digs somewhere in his mind to pull it together for me. Sara has a style of her own and I’ve only ever been impressed with the quality of work she produces including the tattoo she did for me. If you’re in the market for a new tattoo or if you never felt welcome at the other shops around town, give Electric Cat Scratch a shot

Briana Creeley: I had an amazing experience here! This was my first tattoo so I was obviously nervous, but the people there are really chill and they helped calm my nerves. Sheila was my tattoo artist and she did such an amazing job. She also very kindly cut the price for me; even if she hadn't though it still would've been a reasonable price. I will definitely be going back there for my next one.

Piercing Connect & Tattoos: what do users think?


Galen Henderson: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, Quality, ValueBest piercing place I've ever been to hands down. Steve is super knowledgeable and answers all questions. My piercings have healed much easier and quicker since being pierced here and I will keep coming back!Service: Piercings

Meron Campbell: Great experience here! My naval piercing was a little pricey, but the jewelry I got is super cute which makes up for it! The piercer was well informed and very clean, and there was hardly a wait despite me being a walk-in. The piercing was over with quickly, and there was literally no pain at all; it didn’t even pinch! He gave me information for aftercare, and even though I’ve heard horror stories about how bad the healing process can be for a naval piercing, mine has gone super smoothly! I haven’t had any major pain at all. Great experience here! I’ll definitely be back, this is definitely one of the better piercing shops i’ve been to! Service: Piercings

Itz GamerWoman: I did a septum piercing 5 days ago. The Piercer was very professional,I was done in like five minutes the price is also very affordable. I’m definitely going back there for all my piercings. Will definitely recommend.

CassionLove: Steve did my vertical labret piercing and it went great of course I was a big baby scared of the needle but he lined it up perfect and he's also very confident in his work. That helped me calm down alot. But overall I love my piercing and I'm so happy I didn't let the negative comments turn me away. Some people just expect too much generosity from people doing their job. He was cool as $#!+ And he knows what he's doing. So 5⭐ for Steve from me.

Haitianut Feaster: If I could give zero stars I would. Extremely unprofessional! I was excited to get a second nose ring on the left side of my nose and Steve botched it up. He did the peircing uneven and refused to fix the problem for free. He tried to charge me again for a mistake that he made and was completely nonchalant and had no remorse for messing up my piercing. Warning!!! Do not support this business!! Avoid at all cost!!! Service: Piercings

muu vaa: been going here for 7 years steve is the only person I trust to pierce anything on me, what I like the most about his work he always has you make sure his placement is how you like it before he pierces it. love his work

Ray (Ray): The only reason I gave them 2 stars is the 1 for cleanliness and 1 for professionalism. Zero customer service skills unpleasant employees like talking to your alter ego very smug. Way overpriced. Won’t be coming here. Hope you read my comment and reflect.

Ryan Carrell: BEWARE -- This place is a complete scam. Had an appointment for tomorrow night but can't make it because of the snow storm that just hit DC and a flight cancellation. When I called to cancel, I was told that there's no refund, despite the site / text message confirmation saying that cancellation is an option if it's outside the 24 hour window. So, if you're planning on going here and you make an appointment, rest assured you won't get your money back no matter what. Already in the process of filing a charge back with my credit card company. Unreal.

Montrell Walker: Positive: Cleanliness, Punctuality, QualitySuper clean and Steve is a really cool dude. I told him I played football at Howard and as I was getting ready to get my nose pierced, he was giving me advice on things. Very genuine and nice. Also very affordable. Go, you won’t regret itService: Nose piercing

Shayla Pickering: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, QualityIf you have had tattoos and piercings before the smell of the cleaners are familiar. I smelled it about halfway up the stairs and it was very assuring I picked the right place. As I reached the top it was clean and welcoming. I was pierced by Steve, very nice, professional, and conversational. Don’t even question it, go.

Fatty's Tattoos & Piercings H Street: what do users think?


Diego Geisner: My experience with Brian was great! I was only in the DC area for a limited amount of time on leave, but I had a consultation with Brian on a Thursday and he was able to fit me in his schedule before I left a few days later(on New Year’s Day). I really appreciated his flexibility. He was so dedicated we ended up staying pretty late to finish, and I am very happy with the beautiful tattoo he gave me. I have been complimented countless times on it and I feel great every time I look in the mirror. It was as painless as I could have hoped for, and it still looks amazing now that it’s healed. I look forward to working with him again in the future!

Taylor Carvalho: Kyle at the H Street location is SO wonderful. I submitted a request to make an appointment for two more ear piercings. He responded super quickly to set the appointment. When I arrived, he was welcoming and helpful picking out my new pieces. He walked through everything he was going to do step by step and was seriously such a joy. The piercings are perfect and my experience was phenomenal. I’ll 100% be back to Kyle again.

Soniya Shah: Had a wonderful experience with Brian. I met with him for a consultation on a Saturday and he was able to fit me in the following weekend. His attention to detail was amazing. When the first sketch he presented didn’t match what I wanted he went back with patience until it matched up. I really appreciated his guidance and advice as to placement as this was my first tattoo. He is very communicative and was a wonderful artist to work with. Highly recommend Brian!

Landers Mayer: I got a tattoo from Brian Buckles and absolutely loved it! I submitted an inquiry online and then had to go into the shop for a consultation on a Saturday. Since what I was getting was on the smaller side, Brian was actually able to fit me in the following day, on Sunday. Brian made me feel super comfortable, was very communicative, and made sure that I was happy with the sizing and placement. I even forgot to bring my water bottle so Brian was kind enough to grab me some from across the street! I'm super happy with my tattoo (the photo is from right after which is why the surrounding area is red) and I would absolutely see Brian again!

Nicole D: I’ve now gotten two tattoos from Brian, and am so impressed with his work and his attention to detail. He was wonderful about collaborating and providing creative ideas - would absolutely recommend!

Fiona Adams: Incredible experience!! Quick responses online when scheduling, and Kyle has a very calming presence. My nose piercing fell out and half closed over 2 days, and Kyle put one back in. I barely felt it, and it’s now better than my original piercing. Price felt very fair too. I will say that I would’ve loved a way to schedule an appointment online without having to message, but overall it was a great experience and I would/will recommend this place!

Rachel: Brian was awesome! He was very accommodating with our schedule, and super patient as we changed tattoo design ideas and sizing... the end product was exactly what we wanted (or in some cases, better) and super clean with crisp lines! I will definitely be going back.

Ollie Calabrese: Met with Brian to do an elbow piece and it came out absolutely fantastic. Chill dude who was great to work with while listening to my ideas and giving me input on what would look good. Appreciated his attention to detail in a tricky location and will definitely be going back for more!

Reid Smith: I got a tattoo from Brian Buckles. He was extremely helpful and worked with me on the spacing of my design. I loved his lettering work on his instagram and he executed my font perfectly. Brian is patient and attentive and took great care with detail. I am so happy with his work and absolutely recommend him!

QUEEN 1: I had a great experience getting my nostrils pierced here. It was nice and clean upon entry. Kyle was very fast at getting back to me after my online inquiry, and also super knowledgeable and possesses great people skills. My services were quick as well. I will be returning. Thank you!!

Rick's Tattoos: what do users think?


Jessica Gingerich: My first tattoo went really well, I walked in with a friend around 6 to get a small matching set and we were both out by 7! The tattoos we got were really tiny and I’d recommend making an appointment if you want anything bigger or more complicated but I had a great experience. I’d definitely go back!
Response: Thank you 🙏, your review is much appreciated.

Krista Williams: Zak was so amazing! I was a walk in and got my first tattoo. I was super nervous and he truly put me at ease. He made me feel super comfortable throughout the entire process and made it super quick and easy! I could have asked for a better first experience!!Service: Tattoos

nick cornwell: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, Quality, ValueI’ve been back to Rick’s 4 times and been tattooed by Troy each time. He’s been very professional and does great work, I’ll definitely continue going back. The entire staff is very friendly and very helpful. Head to Rick’s if you’re considering a new tattoo.Service: Tattoos
Response: Thank you for your review, Troy is pretty awesome and we are glad to have him with us.

Nikki Darnes: First time getting a tatoo and recommended by my sister! So glad I traveled from TN for this gem. I can’t remember my artists name, but he was wonderful! Calmed my nerves, very professional, explained the process the whole time and had a killer playlist! Definitely going back next trip up. THANK YOU!!Service: Tattoos

Rachel Hojnicki: Positive: Professionalism, QualityI went to Zak a couple weeks ago for a walk-in tattoo. He was extremely professional and able to draw up the tattoo I wanted. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking to get a tattoo. This is a great shop!Service: Tattoos

Jay Thompson: Zak hooked me and my roommate up. Professional. Explained the process well. Gave us advice on what we should consider. Reasonably priced and overall great experience.

Ian Stout: Zak and Ben are such great artists (I've gotten my tattoos from them, I'm sure everyone else there is amazing.) Half my tattoos now are from this place - the prices, quality of art, and vibe of the place all keep me coming back. Absolutely recommend! (P.S: if you're looking to save money, a permanent piece of art on your body is probably not the place to be looking for something cheap. Quality wins!)

Anthony Lopez Garcia: Troy did a wonderful job on a cover up tattoo for me. Very professional, will make time fly with good conversation.

Emily Reid Campbell: Rick’s Tattoos is awesome. Zak Warren did a fantastic job on my first tattoo EVER, and I absolutely love it. And Zak. And Rick’s. Best experience I could have imagined. (And since I took 41 years to get my nerve up to do this, I’ve imagined a TON.) I could not be happier with it. The lines are beautifully clear and crisp, and the execution is exactly what I wanted in every way. I love it and will definitely go back when/if I ever decide on another one. My husband had a similarly great experience with a more senior artist there, Ben Krist. His tattoo is a larger and extremely intricate geometric line design, with overlapping circles and tons of detailed symmetry that required serious tattoo artist skills to pull off. I actually thought it was crazy to even try. But Ben did it perfectly. These guys are good. I don’t have personal experience with the other artists there, but all seem to get rave reviews across the board. You can call ahead to discuss artists and appointment options if you want, or just walk-in anytime and sign in at the desk (just like you might do at a nail salon). I know I asked them lots of questions, on the phone and in the shop, and they were very helpful and happy to answer them every time. (Or at least they pretended to be happy, which works just as well for me. :)) Yay for Rick’s.

Caleb: Can't say enough good things about this shop.. every artist in this shop is very talented - I've been tattooed by 3 different folks here and always loved the result. If you want to get something small, just walk in - they take walk ins and if they can't fit you in, they'll help you schedule an appointment easily. Don't waste their time and they won't waste yours! They have tons of awesome flash if you simply want to pick something off the wall, and they're flexible and creative with your requests/whatever you bring them. If a particular artist isn't able/interested in doing your request, he/she will find someone else in the shop better suited for it. You will be in good hands as soon as you walk through the door. This place has a great reputation for a reason - I would trust any artist at Rick's, even sight unseen, given their standards for quality. I've gotten 8 tattoos (and counting) here.

Bethesda Tattoo: what do users think?


Emily Butz: Arrived early and got paired with Erika for my ear piercings. She was super nice and did a great job helping me with the prices, along with making sure I was getting a good experience with my first piercings since they filled in after middle school. Plus, it’s a cool looking shop with expertly placed safety measures. I did have a little trouble working around the website, specifically setting up appointments and finding the needed paperwork to fill out. If there is some accessibility options with finding things I’d be eternally grateful. Thank you! Service: Ear piercing
Response: Hi Emily! We're glad to hear you had such a good experience here getting your ears pierced. Thanks also for bringing the website navigation to our attention -- we will certainly look into (and implement) ways we can make the website accessible for all of our clients.

Emma Yanevskyy: Love my tattoos from James. Clean, fairly priced, professional, and excellent experience all around. Everyone I’ve encountered at Bethesda Tattoo has been friendly and professional. They care about the work they do and it shows.Service: Tattoos
Response: thank you Emma, I'm having so much fun with your tattoo! I'm so glad it meets your daughters expectations! Hahaha.so cute.

Lina Aguillon: I had such a good experience with everyone here, especially my artist Pedro! I came in as a walk-in and the process was pleasant and fast. I was given great instructions for healing and my tattoo tuned out lovely. Thank you! Can’t wait for my next tattoo
Response: Lina, We're so happy to hear of your positive experience here. We look forward to seeing you again for your next tattoo.

Sarah Hetzler: Absolutely amazing service!! Jermaine did an excellent job on my tattoo. This was my first one and he explained every step of the process. Would highly recommend this shop to anyone wanting an extremely quality experience.Service: Tattoos
Response: thank you for the kind words Sarah, we love Jermaine to!

Matt J: Great local shop. The entire staff was so friendly, accommodating and communicative. Had some questions on my design, got honest feedback and so happy with the work. VERY clean, and use a new Saniderm process which made healing a breeze. Worked with James - plan to use him again and again!

Ramona Aubry: Got my first tattoo at this place. Super thrilled with the experience overall. Great team, great artist with a lot of attention for detail and comfort. Loved it and can’t wait to come back for my next tattoo! Highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a tasteful, affordable and painless tattoo experience !

Veeda B: This tattoo parlor, although very clean and seemingly professional, overcharges their clients by absolutely ludicrous amounts. And what's worse: twice now, I have been quoted an already too expensive price for very small tattoos, and then after the tattoo is completed, the artist hiked up the price by LITERALLY $80- this has happened, no joke, twice. And these tattoos each took maybe 10 minutes to complete, which was what the artist had estimated beforehand. So there would be no valid reason to increase the cost. I want people to please be careful and don't allow yourself to be taken advantage of. This happens most often with women and people with foreign accents (I have several personal experiences here along with anecdotes from friends who have been tatted here as well). Also, I've gotta say, all the tattoos I've had here have blow outs.
Response: This is a fake review. This business does not have records of a client by the name of Veeda B. Fake reviews are slander and harassment and this matter is currently being discussed with local police and Google.

Ludy: I love my tattoo from James, it was my first tattoo so I was very scared, but he gives you security, that man has hands that you don't even feel when he tattoos you, I left happy, thanks for a good experience.Service: Tattoos

Mikhayla Stover: Had SUCH a phenomenal experience here. A very cozy, very clean shop, and everyone there was very kind and accommodating! Will absolutely return for any future work I get done :)Service: Nose piercing
Response: Mikhayla, It was great having you here! We hope to see you again soon!

Bryan Whyte: Bethesda Tattoo will be the only parlor I will go to. The environment is forever interesting in the best manner possible and every artist has their own story tied to their amazing personalities. Looking forward to finishing my arm there.

Lady Octopus Tattoos: what do users think?


Cam P.: Gilda's artistry was phenomenal, I'm so glad I found Lady Octopus Tattoo! I have over a dozen tattoos, but knew that I needed to go somewhere different than my usual shop for a very specific tattoo. Upon arriving, I was able to describe to Gilda what I wanted. She listened to every detail, asked the right questions, and was able to draw up an absolutely perfect design based off of what I told her. The tattoo she did for me was more beautiful than I even expected. I can't thank her and Lady Octopus Tattoo enough! Service: Tattoos

Colby Shomaker: Best tattoo shop in the area. They are extremely popular and appointments need to be booked several weeks to months in advance. Both artists (James and Gilda) are incredible.

Brooke Krouse: Had my first tattoo with Gilda last week and the experience was fantastic. Very clean and safe, and everything was explained thoroughly. It's healing very well and if I can ever decide on another tattoo I'll definitely go back! Highly recommend. Thanks Gilda!Service: Tattoos

Kassandra F: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, Punctuality, QualityI had a faded -- ugly tattoo. Gilda worked her magic and revamped it with such finesse. Her artwork is amazing. Her attention to detail is phenomenal. She really listened to me. She was patient and beyond professional !!!!! I can't wait to go back for my next fix !!!!

Katie Haring: Gilda was absolutely amazing, a true artist who listened and gave me such a beautiful piece that I get to have on me forever! I cannot say enough good things about her and the shop.Service: Tattoos

Katy Cruz Hernandez: I had my session with Angela, it was my first time getting a tattoo and I got 3. Angela is very sweet, the process was fast, easy and not painful like I expected. I love my tattoos and I can't wait to come back!!! Great experience, nice shop and super sweet front desk. Definitely recommend!

Mallory Spalding: I got my first tattoo here with Gilda. She is a great person and a fantastic artist. She was patient with me and took the time during the design process to make sure I was getting what I wanted. I plan to get my whole right arm covered, and I plan to come back here very soon. Great service, and they actually respond to emails and customer inquiries, which makes them even better. Everyone has different tastes in art, and mine fit like a glove with Gilda and her amazing skills.

Grace Kelso: Can’t recommend Lady Octopus enough! I had my first tattoo from Susan and she was amazing. I was nervous but the whole shop and staff were so welcoming and relaxed. I am so happy with the results, Susan really took the time to make sure it was what I wanted. I will be back for another soon, thank you!

Eric Nilsson: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, QualityI had a tattoo done by James here and had a great experience. James created an awesome custom design for me. The shop is very clean and takes safety seriously. I'm looking forward to getting my tattoo finished and will be coming back for future tattoos.Service: Tattoos

Sunni Moon: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, QualityHad my first tattoo by Angela and am absolutely in love. She has a gentle touch and made my experience pleasant. Will be back for my second one as well!

Great Southern Tattoo Company: what do users think?


Diamond Platinum: First time going to this shop to get my kids’ names tatted! Drew worked on both my hubby and I! We have no complaints! We will definitely come back for our future tattoo needs!Service: Tattoos

Valerie Rinta: I went in for a tattoo yesterday, they were able to fit me in! Jacki is so helpful!! She gave me some great advice on my design! Drew was my artist! He did an amazing job! I have received a lot of compliments so far!! Can't wait to get another tattoo here!!

Rusty Lingenfelter: These are my first tattoos, so consider that. I am pleased. I got two tattoos within a week at a fair price. I really appreciated working with Drew and his team
Response: Rusty thank you so much for your feedback, we always appreciate it. Feel free to swing by anytime to get a tattoo or say hi!

Malyssa Moore: *** DO NOT GO TO JIMMY HAYDEN. I went in on 05/29/2021 with my best friend to finally get matching tattoos after six great years of friendship. I live in Illinois, my friend lives in Alexandria, so she went into the shop to set up the appointment. After attempting to contact the artist multiple times for the final designs (including the day before the appointment), he had sent nothing, nor responded. The artist’s name is Jimmy Hayden, and as soon as we arrived for our appointment, his first words were “Sorry I didn’t email you back,” cause he had seen the emails and neglected to be professional. I went first and my tattoo healed well, even though three spots are not connected. Our tattoos contained pink and black ink, simple line work, and it cost $150 each, and we both tipped (of course). My friend went second and he must have really not cared because the pink line work done on her arm has faded into looking like she got it done on someone’s couch (her tattoo is the second picture, taken on 06/18/2021 once it was fully healed). So if you want a quality tattoo, even if it’s a simple one, DO NOT go to Jimmy Hayden. I can’t speak for the other artists but I would not recommend this shop when they employee tattoo artists that don’t take pride in their own work. Thankfully we have someone who is willing to touch it up for free and takes their job seriously. Thanks for the outline, will go to a better shop next time and never bother with this place again.

Kenny Gartner: Really happy with my tattoo from this shop! Easy to walk in and get something scheduled. Drew did an awesome job with the concept and bringing it to life!

Tattoo Paradise: what do users think?


KvngKamm Productions: I got my first tattoo back in December and I'm thoroughly anticipating to book again. John was the artist that did my first piece and really made me feel comfortable through the whole 3 hour process. Leo the front desk worker was also extremely transparent in helping and explaining the booking process. Trust my next check I’m coming right back to this shop. Service: Tattoos

Roinan Almonte Gervacio: Great experience I’ve ever had. Did my first tattoo and the result was great.They have a high price but they offer quality so that’s good. Be back there soon!! 😁
Response: Hey Roinan, Thanks for the kind rating. We're glad your first tattoo experience was a success. See you soon!

LenaMarye: Tattoo Paradise is great. The artists are very talented. I wanted a tattoo for my birthday but when they told me the waitlist was 6-8 weeks I will admit I was quite disappointed and my schedule is not one that I could predict that far out. So I will pass for now.
Response: Hey LenaMarye, Thanks for leaving a review! Right now, the average wait for an appointment is 3-5 weeks. Some artists are booking farther out, but feel free to shoot us an email at TattooParadiseDC@gmail.com to set up an appointment. Otherwise, if the tattoo is palm-sized or smaller, we can see you as a walk in. Thanks!

Ashley: Had an amazing experience with Rob. Did a matching tattoo with my best friend. We originally went to the DC location but they didn’t want to give us the time of day. We told them we were flexible about what we wanted but the artist didn’t want to bother and would only do appointments for what we wanted. When we went to this location, Leo, who helped us when we arrived was so friendly and professional and helped us bring together what we wanted with what they had time to do. Would definitely come here again. Quick, clean, professional Service: Tattoos

Lore S: Very unhappy with an incident that just happened. My cousin and I looked up locations around our area accepting walk ins even called ahead to double check. We arrived a bit before 5pm, discussed what we wanted and agreed on pricing. We were given the option of waiting around until 6:30 or leaving and coming back after placing a $100 deposit. Decided to wait since we had no other plans to which we were even told that was probably better bc if the artist finished before schedule we could go. These two girls walked in way after us and they were helped before us and we were told absolutely nothing. Not until we asked why and there was no justification to why they were so accommodating to them. I found this to be very unprofessional, inconsiderate, and unfair. Our tattoos were small and simple. Not sure how you expect a client to feel about this? The front desk personnel try to say they had an appt when they clearly didn’t. I was even considering spending a good amount of money here for a bigger tattoo. Glad I didn’t, waste of time is all it was!

Matthew DePauw: Everyone that works here is so nice and helpful. The artists are crazy talented and willing to figure out a way to put your thoughts into artwork.

Lifeless Mason: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, QualityGreat experience. I had my second tattoo done and i had Ryan do it. I walked in and he was able to draw up my design in about 15 minutes & was able to do a put exactly what i wanted but even more better on my arm. Definitely coming back.

Crystal Resa: Had a great experience here. Friendly front desk and a clean establishment. I was tattooed by Drew and he did an awesome job. He was very nice and always made sure I doing ok during the tattoo. His art was fantastic and was exactly what I wanted. Will definitely have him do more of my future tattoos.

Meagan Estep: Had a wonderful experience with Drew - he designed a tribute tattoo for my beloved cat and it is just perfect. Highly recommend his work and getting tattooed here!

Brittany Dorr: I've been to this location numerous times and enjoyed every visit, however my favorite artist is no longer there. If you're looking to get piercings, they're gonna send you to the Rockville location or DC because they're no longer set up for piercing in Wheaton. With all that being said, the staff is super nice and make you feel welcomed all the time.

Ray Hawse Tattoos: what do users think?


Marcus Williams: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, ValueI searched all over for a new local tattoo artist, and luckily Google led to one of the best in the business. Ray's attention to detail is second to none. He did a fabulous job covering my old tattoo. I can't wait to get the next project started. I have already recommended him to all my family and friends.Service: Tattoos

Brittany Garr-Colón: I found Ray Hawse Tattoos using a Yelp search and then happily saw all the positive Google reviews. My first two tattoos were done in NYC and I wanted to find a place just as top notch as the shop up there. I scheduled a consultation and was surprisingly able to get my tattoo done that same day! So happy with how it turned out. Ray was consistently nice and helpful, and the shop is clean, easy to get to, and parking is easy. Prices are also very reasonable. Overall great experience and would recommend. I will definitely come back when I’m ready for my next one! Service: Tattoos
Response: Thank you so much glad you had a great experience. Let us know when you’re ready to come back for more

Robert Anderson: Ray Hawse did my very first tattoo. I am so pleased and happy with the way it turned out. He was professional and handled me with care. He shared his opinions and ideas to enhance my tattoo to it’s fullest. I have been advertising my masterpiece for him as a thank you for the outstanding job he does. I recommend that you try him for yourself you will not be disappointed…Thank you my Ray. I’ll see you soon! Sheila A. Service: Tattoos

Nebiy Yonas: I got my first portrait tattoo at Ray Hawse Tattoos on 06/09/2022. Ray did the job well. I asked if he can add more to the tattoo that I was getting but he gave his expert idea on why the additional pieces should not be added and he was right. He was fair on the amount of work hours he took. I definitely recommend others to use his business. I will definitely go back to get additional tattoos to be completed in the near future. Service: Tattoos

Kimberly Simmons: I love love Ray’s spot. This is my fourth Tat with him! He always take my tat visions to the next level. He is very knowledgeable especially with different skin tones and coloring. He has state-of-the-art equipment and his shop is immaculate. Also he is a cool down-to-earth person. I tell him I am done but he know I will be back. Service: Tattoos

maison geaux chez: Ray is an amazing tattoo artist who is a people person. Spending time in his shop will leave you relaxed and at peace while getting a tattoo. He’s honestly a hidden gem in comparison to others in the area. I’m glad I found him and can’t wait for him to do many more of my tattoos!Service: Tattoos

Erika Katchmark: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, ValueRay's Tattoo shop is nothing but professional. It has a laid back atmosphere and the folks who work there are kind and awesome. They provide the upmost excellent work and I in addition to my family have been going to Ray's for about a decade now. Great place to get inked up and looking forward to my next visit!Service: Tattoos

Ivan Sitnov: Ray’s talent is evident in his work. The tattoos are designed to look good on the skin and to age well. The lines are crisp and shades are not “dotty.” The shop itself is very professional, welcoming, well designed and clean. Highly recommend.

Daniel Nguyen: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, QualityI got my first tattoo with Ray and we are very close to finishing my half sleeve (4 sessions so far). The shop is beyond clean and modern. Ray is easy to talk to and he brought my ideas to life on my skin. His black/grey realism skills are top notch.

Cry Baby Studios: what do users think?


Rebecca Whitehouse: Ebee is the best piercer in the DMV!!!! I’ve been here for a few years and am trusting her completely withal all my piercing needs. She’s a little out of the way for me, but worth the drive. She worked with me patiently and attentively to ensure the placement of my piercings would be exactly what I wanted and would fit with future plans for my ears. I love how thoughtful she is! She also helped me understand exactly what I was getting into in terms of aftercare for each of my new piercings. I feel so comfortable and confident getting pierced by her!

C C: Glad the location has finally shown up on google and I can say how AMAZING everyone here is. The environment is friendly and chill, all of the artists here are masters of their craft, and their isn't an ounce of that pretentious attitude you may find in other DC shops. There is a reason booking takes time - the quality of art here is highly sought after. I've received 3 tattoos from Simba, one of which was a multi-session arm sleeve. I get compliments almost everyday on my tattoos from crybaby and constantly recommend this shop for a fantastic experience. Currently, they are running a fundraiser (one of many) in honor of women's history month. Who doesn't love that? If you are on the fence about booking, don't be. No regrets.

Alexandra Wisbiski: Run, don't walk, to get your tattoos from Cry Baby Studios! I've gotten 3 tattoos from the lovely people of this studio (and will be getting 2 more this year from them). Every time I interact with them, whether it is via email or in person, everyone is always friendly, helpful, rad, and professional! All the artists here are super talented (so follow them on Instagram to know when their bookings open up) and their receptionist Shilo is great too! Unlike previous studios I'd been too, Cry Baby Studios is a comfortable and caring place, which is why I love going to them!

Mia Saxena: Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, QualityI’ve gotten 2 tattoos from Simba and had a great experience both times! Highly recommend this place!Service: Tattoos

emilie mijares: This was my first tattoo and it was an amazing experience! My mom and I got matching tattoos. The artist we went to was Alex and he was super kind. He did a good job of making us feel comfortable and was really quick with tattooing. Alex tattooed exactly what we wanted and it looks so great! He did an amazing job and I’m definitely planning on going to him again in the future to get another tattoo! Service: Tattoos
Response: Thank you so much for coming! We are hoping to see you again soon!

William Hernandez: Recently got my newest tattoo done by Rachael, and I absolutely love it! Her art is definitely top tier, and her The time I spent with her while she tattooed away was awesome. Very personable and easy to be relaxed around. Her style of conversation and checking in made my time go by super fast. The line work is super clear, the coloring has a subtle beauty to it. I wouldn't change anything about it. I will definitely recommend this shop and artist to anyone looking for a new tattoo! 10/10 Service: Tattoos
Response: Thank you so much for coming! We are hoping to see you again soon!

Adam Lynch: Blxck Label Collective is a top-notch shop with high quality artists. The artwork displayed throughout the studio feels like walking into an art museum. My artist was Ken, he provided a really great experience. I wanted a traditional Japanese sleeve. Ken has really great artistry, he was able to freehand most of the sleeve and it looks incredible. The line work was really detailed and clean (even/consistent throughout). His technique with the linework and stippling was gentle, my tattoo healed really fast as a result. It took 4 sessions, and we finished the sleeve at the Baltimore tattoo convention which was a really cool experience. I felt he went out of his way to ensure I had a good experience with good conversation, sufficient breaks, and readjustments. I get a lot of compliments on my tattoo and plan to come back in the future. Service: Tattoos
Response: Thank you so much Adam! We hope to see you back soon!

Jessica Howard: Maria is such a wonderful tattoo artist. It was my first time getting a tattoo and she was absolutely amazing. She made me feel comfortable, asked every single question I had ( and I had a lot) and made my fears about getting a tattoo disappear! The shop is extremely clean and the staff is nice and make you feel very comfortable. If you are looking for a tattoo definitely call this place first!!!!!

Leigh Olphin: I hadn't had a tattoo done in over 10 years. When I had my last few done, every tattoo had a vibe I didn't quite like with male tattoo artists. I had decided I'd wait until I found a female tattoo artist who had a softer approach. Then I got to have Rachael as my artist and I couldn't be more pleased. She listened so well, created something beautiful, placed it amazingly, didn't roll her eyes at doing a flower piece for me, AND has the lightest touch! I have no scarring or raised lines, no ink rejection, and it healed quicker than any other tattoo I'd ever gotten. I recieve so many compliments on my tattoo and it makes me feel really beautiful. I will only be going back to Rachael and I look forward to many more tattoos. Service: Tattoos

Jesse Metrick: I got this tattoo done by the shop owner Spike at the Cleveland Tattoo convention. Since the start Spike has been amazing and is a super nice guy, like we have known each other for years! His work is absolutely incredible, super detailed and he gave me exactly what I was looking for. I can’t thank you enough Spike - would recommend him and his shop to anyone looking to get tattooed. Can’t wait for the next time ! Service: Tattoos
Response: Thank you so much Jesse! We hope to have you around the studio one of these days!

christopher hernandez: Inker, also known as Nefthaly did my piece and for 5 hours he’s accomplished a lot. He’s very detailed with his work always making sure if I’m okay and if we need to take a break. Very considerate and always coming up with ideas. Every artist in the facility is nice and considerate as well. So many customers and staff members were dying to see the progress and it made me feel good knowing everyone wanted to see the result. Will be going back soon! Service: Tattoos
Response: Thank you so much Christopher! We hope to see you soon!

Derick Brantley: First off I absolutely love the art work display in the shop. It’s like walking into a fine art gallery! I was very impressed with the manner I was taking care of. I had my appointment with Maria. She did nothing but create a comfortable and clean atmosphere. I really appreciate the attention to details as well as the interesting conversation. Took a lot of the pressure off of actually getting the tattoo. We all know tattoos hurt but it was nice having a distraction in that regard. Overall I am very pleased with everything for the work, shop atmosphere , and most importantly the cleanliness. I look forward to visiting the shop and working with Maria again. Excellent experience hands down. Service: Tattoos
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, looking forward to see you soon.

Jessica Harrison: Very awesome experience getting tattooed by Spike communicated well, made changes with no issues very easy to work with! Establishment very clean and everyone was very friendly!! Also got my rook peirced!! piercing done by Juliana was awesome and very professional!!! If I could give more than 5 stars I would!! Definitely going back for more work!! Services: Tattoos , Piercings

Krista Pinto: This shop is amazing! The whole studio is jammed packed with good vibes and talent! My Mom and I got matching tattoos from Rachael. She is apprenticing and just killing it! I seen her work on others, and now Mom and I have our own from her! We couldn't be any more happy or satisfied! Would recommend this shop, and Rachael a bagillion times over!

You can definitely express what you want and she is very open and kind. Great people and price!!!!Service: Tattoos

Nicole Coletti: Celide was incredible throughout the process of getting my tattoo and I've already recommended her to multiple people. Our consultation was quick, friendly and efficient, her instructions and communications were very clear, and the tattooing experience itself was excellent. I'm in love with my tattoo and I'm so glad I trusted Celide to do it for me! Service: Tattoos

Priyanka Khatta: I had a wonderful and impressive tattoo experience with Celide. She made the entire process seamless. From consultation to service, Celide took her time which made me feel very comfortable. I dislike needles but she exceeded in creating a calming and enjoyable atmosphere. She killed it and I was blown away. The shop itself is clean and sanitary. I highly recommend getting a piece done by the incredibly talented Celide!

Quen Massenburg: I felt completely comfortable and confident in Imani K's artistic interpretation and expression of my ideas after speaking to her prior to my appt. And upon arrival at her happy, cute , cozy, artistic space, She did nothing short of delivering an ABSOLUTELY AWSOME PIECE for me.

Chandler Davis: I’d been following Imani for a while and jumped at the chance to get ink when I saw the opportunity present itself. She is very professional, attentive, personable and so inviting. I mean, you just want to hug her. All of the things that I’ve just listed about her are great.....but I haven’t gotten to her bread and butter: the art! Listen.....I can’t find one word to describe it. Imani is dope. She’s great. She’s wonderful. All of that. Im never going anywhere else. She is that good and I’d recommend her any day. *When my ink heals, I’ll update this review.

Tattoo Haven Bethesda: what do users think?


Steven Davis: What an amazing shop! Extremely friendly staff and great location. My wife and I both got tattoos from the same amazing artist, Karis. She was such a professional, taking time to ensure we both were completely satisfied with our work. She even stayed well into the early morning hours to get the job done. I cannot rate this shop high enough and will DEFINITELY be getting more work done there. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Simulation (MorningStar): These are different days I woke up and took photos of a 4 day old tattoo. I have several tattoos and one on face besides this. This is by far the worst tattoo I have ever gotten from any type of shop. Even prison has better artist then this guy Andrew. I just don’t understand, if you no experience with faces then why would you touch my face. I will be returning for a Full Refund. Also I paid 125 for this tiny tattoo. I paid 55 for a larger tattoo on my face and it never scabbed. It’s actually perfect. But this shop is a scam. If you’re just allowing anyone to tattoo faces and hands. Then you’ll allow anything to go wrong. This is not a professional environment with everyone right next to each other. I wish I never came here. By far the worst experience ever…

Matthew Devaney: Met the guys at the shop a few weeks ago and talked over ideas and what not, shop has a great atmosphere and all of the artists are extremely friendly and talented. I ended up deciding to work with Vinh and gave him a rough idea of what I wanted, he was back to me within a few hours with an absolutely amazing sketch and we locked it in. Got the tattoo from him on Friday 6-17 and it was such a great experience. Vinh is such a down to earth dude with amazing talent, he made the entire experience that much better with funny jokes and great conversations, I highly recommend him and his team to anyone looking for top notch tattoo work. (Photos of tattoo are attached) Service: Tattoos

Helena Wu: Had a fantastic time with my first tattoo here :) I gave Andrew an idea I wanted, and he was really accommodating about creating & editing the design to my liking. The photos are showing: Lines, Finish, and Post 1 Month. Everything has stayed really crisp and I'm really impressed with the clean linework and shading. Definitely would come back here again! Service: Tattoos

becca eyre: Excellent experience! I'm working with Vinh on a sleeve project and so far it's been great! He did all he could to help keep me comfortable, open to exploring and shifting ideas as we move through the piece, and he was pleasant to be around! I got to meet a few of the other artists and they're all great as well. Very welcoming environment overall. I'll definitely be back for more! Service: Tattoos

Jonathan Ortega: Recently got a tattoo from here and my artist was Charlie! She was AMAZING to work with and I will definitely be coming back! I was very indecisive on how I wanted my tattoo and she was super talented/ creative enough to just make it happen. During the process, she was easy to talk with and we shared some good laughs/ conversations. The overall atmosphere was welcoming and professional. If you’re thinking about a tattoo…definitely check out Tattoo Haven! Service: Tattoos

Abigail Perrin: Thank you so much to Vinh Le at Tattoo Haven Bethesda. Super friendly, comfortable/he's very professional towards a woman which is important, relaxed environment, will ensure your comfort, will stop if you're having too much pain and the shop is in a good location. Still a bit more to go due to time constraints but 70% was done in one session. Did a six hour session and it was my first time being tattooed since 2016 but he made it a pleasant experience Very pleased thus far. The first photo is at the shop and the others are from days 2&3. Service: Tattoos

Slowstart 89: I got a large hand sized color tattoo that I gave the artist some creative freedom over and it came out AMAZING! The color, the detail, the design all looks great and I couldn't be more happy with it. If you want to see more check out my tiktok account. Same name! 💯 Added a recent fully healed and touched up view 2/20/2022.

Leech Viral: Best tattoo experience of my life. Vinh Lee is an amazing artist who has worked on several piece for me and well be just one of the artists at this location that I will continue to see for more work in the future. Charlie Wiseman is another talented artist that I have some work done by and I have plans to get more work from her as well. From the top artists to the apprentices there is so much talent here. Service: Tattoos

Gaven Jaxon: I had an incredible experience. Everyone at the shop were very caring and accommodating. We worked together on an idea, and they helped me create a piece I'm very proud of. I highly recommend Tattoo Haven Bethesda for their high quality work and personal care . Huge shout out and thanks to Vinh! Thanks bro!Service: Tattoos

Bruce Lord: Very clean and professional shop. They place heavy emphasis on ensuring the client's comfort and safety, which is fantastic. Mila was my artist and she did a fantastic job. Great line work and shading done with a light touch. She's also great to chat with while she's working and equally comfortable to sit in silence with; you can tell she cares very much about creating a comfortable atmosphere for her clients. I'm looking forward to getting more tattoos from her and continuing to support a fantastic woman-owned tattoo shop.
Response: Thank you so much! We are glad you enjoyed your experience!

Kelli Appelen: I was able to schedule 3 tattoos with Mila and she did an amazing job! She worked with me to get the designs just right, she explained each step of the process both before the appointment, during the appointment and the aftercare for my tattoos. She was easy to work with and talk to during the whole process and her work was exactly what I wanted. She was very fair with her prices, which I also really appreciated. If I am ever in the VA area again I will definitely try to schedule another appointment with her! The shop is also very nice and has a great aesthetic! Service: Tattoos
Response: Thank you very much for your kind words!

Angela Pulzone: I had an amazing experience getting my tattoo at Old Town Ink & Art Gallery. Jesse did an awesome job helping me out in making my tattoo even better than l could have ever imagined. He is very professional and friendly and truly takes his time to make sure you are comfortable and feel at ease through the entire process.

Thank you Jesse for the amazing tattoo you are truly blessed with such an amazing talent and l will 100% be choosing this shop the next time l need work done.
Response: Thank you so much Angela! It was a great experience working with you!

Cecili Thompson Williams: Mila is an incredible tattoo artist! After a few back and forth emails, she perfectly brought my vision to life! Her line work is fantastic, she has a great eye for layout and design, and she's super collaborative. This was my 7th and biggest tattoo. And, it was my best experience! She has a light touch, the shop is super clean, and she works in a private space. All that and she's kind and a pleasure to work with, as well. If you are looking for an artist, she's the one for you! Service: Tattoos
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words and we are so glad you enjoyed your experience!

Rebecca Fulp-Eickstaedt: AMAZING experience at Old Town Ink! Mila did a fantastic job with my tattoo, and I could tell that she put a lot of time and effort into preparing the design. Both the drawing and the final product were absolutely beautiful! I also felt so comfortable and welcome at the studio - it has a really inviting vibe, and Mila was also super friendly and accommodating. Definitely recommend! Service: Tattoos

Amal Kasabri: Jesse is a true artist. He took his time to consult with me , understand my vision and then developed my idea into a piece of art. I gave him the main idea and style and he free handed the sketch. Turned it out into a master piece, his lines are delicate but precise , his attention to details is amazing. Everything about my experience was super professional and great.
Response: Thank you so much Amal! Working with you is amazing.

Will Phillips: Mila was and will always be my artist. I gave her free reign for my sleeve after I gave her my idea. She knocked it out of the park. She also has the softest touch. I can sit for every bit of 8 hours with her and get up feeling refreshed. I will recommend her to anyone looking to get their first tattoo up to the person wanting their next tat. You won't be disappointed! Service: Tattoos
