Go here! Be happy! – Everyone is very charming and patient, the work is good and very professional. I'll most certainly return.
For your first time and afterwards, this is the place – I had been thinking about getting a tattoo on my upper arm and passed many tattoo parlors. This is the only place that looked clean. The artist was amazing - gentle and did a great job!
5 stars for Herman – whoa, what's with all this hate going on for the asian tat artist? his name's herman, and he's AWSOME!! Yeah he doesn't get chatty like X and all the other folks, but he'll concentrate on your tat and make sure it's perfect. When I went in, he was working on another customer's head that took 4+HOURS. But he took me as soon as he was done. he even retouched my old tat (that he did awhile back) free of charge. When I got my tat on the back of my ear, it started hurting and he would stop every now and then to reassure if i was alright. Trust me he's a good tat artist and he WILL listen to what u want. 5 stars!! Oh and I love Helen. she's so funny
Two Great Artists – What's with only Reviewing X? Yeah, he's awesome, he did my tattoo and my friend's tattoo realllly nicely. And yeah, he's cute, it's hard not to flirt with him. Very nice, but another awesome artist is Linda. She did a GREAT job on my tattoo, she is AWESOME with color and I would highly recommend her for your intricate tattoos. Both of them are great to converse with.
The ONLY person I DEFINITELY DO NOT RECOMMEND is the Asian guy. I have been there so many times for my tattoos I don't even remember his name! Not really worth it unless you want your Cliche tattoos overpriced for an unreasonable amount. He has a cockyness to him that's not cool at all. I went with another friend so she can get a tattoo I designed for her and she tried talking to him the whole time and all he can respond in were in grunts or silence. It's like he has some kind of Social Problem.
PLEASE don't waste your money on him.
ASK FOR XAVIER or LINDA, they both know what the Hell they are doing and have great social and artistic skills. Don't listen to that One Star review.
X is the guy you want tattooing you, he has 13 yrs under his belt. you can trust him – my friends and i got our tats here n it was AWESOME!!!
my artist was X. the review below was right. he was patient, kind, made me feel very comfortable. they have an asian chick workin at the desk n shes so helpful n fun to converse with if you need the distraction. X put up a blinder to give some privacy and even though it was a painful hour, i would go throw it again bc the work was ridicly hot! he prepared me for where which spots would hurt the most n he was def rite! def recommend coming here to get ur tat. X is not about the price, hes all about the art! it was a good clean place, u can just go in n sit n chill. X will spend hours helping you if u need it.
by the wayyyyyy...X is hot. its hard not to flirt with him
warning: dont go to the asian guy, hes the kinda artist that rushes n kinda bitter n rough on pricing (he did my frnds tat)
Friendly service, excellent work!! – Do Not listen to the guy who wrote the review below! Whatever Tattoo deserves the best rating! I just got a tattoo done here, and the artists were soo patient with me. X did my tattoo and he did a fabulous job! At times when it was most painful for me, he stopped, let me take my time with it, put up a blinder so no one could see me and it was more private. Gabe, the piercer, is soo nice! They are both soft spoken guys who don?t try to push anything on you, and I?ve had artists at other places try to rush you into things. The pricing was incredibly reasonable, and X did some shading on my tattoo that looks SICK! It?s precise, it?s beautiful, I highly recommend Whatever Tattoo, and I?ll be going there for another one in time.
WORST IN TOWN!!!! – KOREAN FAMILY BUSINESS AFTER DIVORCE!!VERY BAD "CAN'T CALL THEM ARTIST" USING CHEAP INK!!!PLEASE DON'T EVER GO THERE!!!!AXE OR X WHATEVER HIS NAME BIG FAT GUY DRAWING LIKE A CHILD....HUNTER IS THE OTHER ALMOST ARTIST,VERY BAD ....ABSOLUTELY UNPROFESSIONAL!!! NOT EVEN WORTH THE STAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
