Just got my first tattoo done here this Friday. All of the staff were very kind and friendly. I was literally the last customer of the day and the artist who did my work stayed over an hour after close to squeeze me in after the shop had a super long day from their weekend deal. Saro (my artist) did an excellent job and captured exactly what I wanted in the style and color and the price was extremely reasonable.

I have had the pleasure of working with 2 different tattoo artists at Cottage 13 in the past and have been extremely happy with the finished result from both. My first tattooist has moved on from the studio but my most recent work was done by Jason Paine and I am very satisfied with his technique, but am also thankful for his knowledge and care. From the selection and design process through to aftercare, Jason demonstrates commitment to his clientele at every step by offering helpful suggestion.

Kryptonian Ink has been the best tattoo parlor I have been too. Stephen Stacey made me feel comfortable and anything he could do make me feel more like home he did. I got offered for him to order pizza and I got to watch Netflix on a tablet all set up for me while tattoo was being done. Also I love private rooms for more privacy. Best experience ever. I will never go to any other parlor. I'm Hook. It's like a trip to the SPA.
