Probably the best piercing and tattoo shops I've ever been too. Extremely clean, super friendly staff who remember your name, high quality jewelry and piercing equipment, even personalized jewelry. I got a new septum clicker from Tranceformations, hand-made just for me, and it sits in my nose every day as my pride and joy because of how well made it is. I couldn't recommend any other place more than Tranceformations.

I just wanted to pass on a huge thank you to the friendly front end staff and Dave Nicholson for his incredible work for my first tattoo. This has been something I've been thinking about for years and as soon as I walked in the front door I felt welcomed, comfortable and safe to proceed. Thank you for the excellent services Black & Blue, I've already referred you a number of times and will continue!

Awesome tattoo shop. Super clean, great vibe right off the bat. I knew I was in good hands when I walked in the door. Andrea Dawn is not only an amazingly talented tattoo artist, but a sweetheart to boot--I was immediately put at ease by her friendly personality. She did a cover-up on an old tattoo my arm that had depressed me for years, and it is just BEAUTIFUL--perfect fine lines and detail, and speedily done to boot. Hard to believe she's only been tattooing for 4 years! Better book now befor
