Couldn’t be more happy with my tattoo! Dart is great and is such an amazing person to work with! I highly recommend him to everyone and will be back soon!

Visited yesterday for a new tattoo with my only go-to guy, Dart – a genius with a pen. The shop is easy to find, easy to access and parking is plentiful. It is a new shop and is very clean, modern and makes you feel at ease. I highly recommend both Dart and the shop!
