I went in yesterday for my first tattoo. The staff was very friendly. My tattoo artist was Adam. I got a small wrist tattoo, and I was pretty nervous but even then he was super kind, funny and reassuring. I started feeling dizzy in the middle, he stopped as soon as I told him and went next door to get me juice. He made the experience so much less painful & better overall. The whole process probably took about 15-20mins max. Will definitely come here for my next tattoo.

Got my 3rd and 4th pieces done today and I must say, the service was beyond what I have ever received. I have been to the Older shops around Waterloo-Kitchener and to be honest, most of the established places lack the professionalism and care I received here. The atmosphere was amazing, very clean shop and expert professionals. Prices were great too. Give them a call! 10/10 would recommend this shop.
