I'm pretty loyal to my tattoo artist and to be completely honest I'm usually very intimidated to walk into a new tattoo shop. They're not always friendly and kinda mean but not at Madison tattoo.. I stopped by a couple days ago because I got it my head that I wanted a quick tattoo on me my sternum. I walked in and was greeted right away.. asked me what I wanted to do and booked me same day!! Cool! I show up to my appointment and my artist was super professional. Walked me through everything and made me feel super comfortable. Started the tattoo and before I knew it was over!! Made the experience fast & painless. This tattoo shop is seriously a hidden little gem in North Hollywood and I'm super excited to have stumbled across it. I will definitely be coming back to keep feeding my tattoo addiction. Thank you very much guys I'm in love with my new tattoo. :) Read Less

I'm not the kind of person that usually shares tattoo experiences on yelp because they're never that memorable or they're pretty awful that I just wanna forget about them. I was very familiar with Madison Tattoo (well when it was called that, they now call themselves North Hollywood Tattoo since they relocated a couple doors down) since my husband & friends have all gotten tattoos from here by Dave Grinds. At the time I wasn't ready to get a tattoo myself but always kept this shop in mind for when I did wanna go through with it. Unfortunately I got the itch for a tattoo when this shop closed down due to filming and then the artists went their own way. Now that they're back at a permanent setting I knew exactly where I'd go for my next tattoo. My husband is the one that rediscovered the shop for me and more importantly he found an amazingly talented artist that fit my style. I got two tattoos done by Daniel (Danny) yesterday, a compass on my inner forearm (45 mins) and a wave outline on my ankle (5 mins). I brought in my ideas and let Danny sketch out his own interpretation so I had a one-of-a-kind piece! He was very polite, caring and most of all patient. I felt super comfortable with Danny because of this.I'm not sure about other ladies out there getting tats but I hate it when there's no connection with your artist, usually because they're just being a-holes the whole time, the experience is really tense and awkward.Anyway, I'm getting a little off topic, I think the main reason I was intrigued with Danny's work was because it's really unique and eye-catching. I don't know a whole lot when it comes to art but I personally love that he does a lot of fine line pieces which give his drawings texture. He also uses a lot of fine lines for what would be "shading" but then it's doesn't come off so heavy since the drawing looks like it can breathe. He is multi talented as well, he can execute all sorts of tattooing styles. One thing I noticed on his Instagram was that his color is on point, super vibrant! One of the things that kept me distracted from the pain of getting tattooed was looking at his incredible wall of drawings/sketches that he's tattooed on others, if I had to pick one to get tattooed on myself I would have a hard time choosing! They're all so fricken immaculate. I can see myself coming back to Danny and have already recommended him to a lot of my friends who loved the tats he did on me! I know for sure my husband is already looking into a knife tattoo idea for Danny to dominate pretty soon. Oh yeah forgot to mention one last thing; his prices are super affordable! Bottom line is- stop searching for the perfect tattoo artist, I've already told you where to find him! You'll thank me later ;) Read Less

I've gotten all my work done by David Grinds and I've never thought twice about it. I've always been extremely satisfied. He's an Awesome visionary with unquestionable talent. I'm not saying these words to kiss ass or score brownie points. I say them because, I've seen the look on people's faces when they look at my tattoos and look down at theirs. And, their disappointment is obvious. And for that reason I will always encourage everyone thinking of getting some ink done to visit North Hollywood tattoo shop.

I have been coming to this shop for a few years now. Jeff Diaz is a phenomenal artist that truly takes pride in his work. Working with Jeff you will be very relaxed knowing that you are working with a master. All of my tattoos are black and gray and Jeff is able to execute such crisp clean lines that gives each piece such a realistic look to them.  If you are really serious about getting a tattoo then you need to work with an artist as patient and detailed as Jeff's work is. Madison tattoo is very clean shop with an awesome zen decour that will give you one of the most pleasant tattoo experiences you've ever had. Read Less

I first got tattooed by Danny during one of those Friday the 13th things. That tattoo was small and pretty standard (as expected) but while I was getting tattooed I noticed all of these bad ass illustrations on transfer paper all over his station. Which was weird because, whereas most tattoo stations are full of past transfers or sketches on transfer paper, these were all full color and detailed. He had this unique style to his art that was part graffiti, part flash, part Spanish art and mostly just really interesting. He had these hybrid animal illustrations that really caught my eye, that were so cool and weird, I made an appointment to come back and get one. Not only did the tattoo come out even better than the illustration, it was a cover up that he executed it flawlessly. 2 years later and it's still bright, still saturated, still rad and most importantly still covered. I dug it so much I came back and got another one to match it on my other calf. From what I've seen, Danny can do all types of styles of tattooing but if you're into getting something interesting and special, sit down and brainstorm with him on an original idea or go through his sketchbook and pick something out. You won't be disappointed. Good shit Danny!!!! Read Less

I've been going to Madison for almost two years now. Something that I always express about her when I'm asked where I got my ink done, is that she's got great energy. I think that's important when finding an artist. Tattooing is an art form no matter how you look at it and I want someone who is not only a talented artist but a positive spirit. She's light on the gun and quick to the draw. My last tattoo felt like a massage. Just kidding but it wasn't bad. Madison has got a couple of guys who also work in the shop. Dave, Daniel and Jeff are super talented and very approachable. Very nice guys. One thing that stands out is that Daniel and Jeff are so polite. I've seen their work up close and personal and always impressed . No matter who you go to at Madison Tattoo, you'll be very happy. The shop is off of Magnolia Blvd between Cahuenga blvd and Clyborn Ave. They use to be on the corner but moved down a couple doors in the same building. Easy free parking. Go stop by and make an appointment! Read Less

I walked into Madison Tattoo shop and was instantly asked how can I help you. Most tattoo shops you stand around for awhile like a dear starring into headlights cause no one will speak up and ask if you need anything. The shop was clean and had a unique vibe to it. You can tell that they actually put thought into it and didn?t just put a bunch of random crap on the walls like most tattoo shops do. I was there to see Jimbo Cutler the 3rd, I was getting the gonzo logo from Hunter S. Thompson?s printing company. I normally wouldn?t get a tattoo from someone that just finished up there apprenticeship, but after seeing how fast he progressed after doing 40 palm sized tattoo?s I was impressed. His lines were straight and he paid close attention to the small detail. Due to experiences with male tattoo artists which most had heavy hands , I prefer women tattoo artist . I would say that Jimbo had a lighter hand then most which made it more comfortable unlike other artist who dug too far into my skin. I would say if Jimbo continues in this industry he has the potential to become one of LA?s best. He is a very talented artist. Above all else I was mostly impressed by the shops cleanliness, and knowledge of sterile practices. If you visit this shop you wont be treated like a moron, the artist here are friendly and open to ideas and meeting new clients. I?ve never felt more welcome in a tattoo shop. Madison tattoo would be a great place for a first timer to get a tattoo because you?ll be treated with respect through out the entire process. M.Olivas Read Less

I was very familiar with Madison Tattoo (well when it was called that, they now call themselves North Hollywood Tattoo since they relocated a couple doors down) since my husband & friends have all gotten tattoos from here by Dave Grinds. At the time I wasn't ready to get a tattoo myself but always kept this shop in mind for when I did wanna go through with it. Unfortunately I got the itch for a tattoo when this shop closed down due to filming and then the artists went their own way. Now that they're back at a permanent setting I knew exactly where I'd go for my next tattoo. My husband is the one that rediscovered the shop for me and more importantly he found an amazingly talented artist that fit my style. I got two tattoos done by Daniel (Danny) yesterday, a compass on my inner forearm (45 mins) and a wave outline on my ankle (5 mins). I brought in my ideas and let Danny sketch out his own interpretation so I had a one-of-a-kind piece! He was very polite, caring and most of all patient. I felt super comfortable with Danny because of this.I'm not sure about other ladies out there getting tats but I hate it when there's no connection with your artist, usually because they're just being a-holes the whole time, the experience is really tense and awkward.Anyway, I'm getting a little off topic, I think the main reason I was intrigued with Danny's work was because it's really unique and eye-catching. I don't know a whole lot when it comes to art but I personally love that he does a lot of fine line pieces which give his drawings texture. He also uses a lot of fine lines for what would be "shading" but then it's doesn't come off so heavy since the drawing looks like it can breathe. He is multi talented as well, he can execute all sorts of tattooing styles. One thing I noticed on his Instagram was that his color is on point, super vibrant! One of the things that kept me distracted from the pain of getting tattooed was looking at his incredible wall of drawings/sketches that he's tattooed on others, if I had to pick one to get tattooed on myself I would have a hard time choosing! They're all so fricken immaculate. I can see myself coming back to Danny and have already recommended him to a lot of my friends who loved the tats he did on me! I know for sure my husband is already looking into a knife tattoo idea for Danny to dominate pretty soon. Oh yeah forgot to mention one last thing; his prices are super affordable! Bottom line is- stop searching for the perfect tattoo artist, I've already told you where to find him! You'll thank me later ;) Read Less

I've gotten all my work done by David Grinds and I've never thought twice about it. I've always been extremely satisfied. He's an Awesome visionary with unquestionable talent. I'm not saying these words to kiss ass or score brownie points. I say them because, I've seen the look on people's faces when they look at my tattoos and look down at theirs. And, their disappointment is obvious. And for that reason I will always encourage everyone thinking of getting some ink done to visit North Hollywood tattoo shop.

Working with Jeff you will be very relaxed knowing that you are working with a master. All of my tattoos are black and gray and Jeff is able to execute such crisp clean lines that gives each piece such a realistic look to them.  If you are really serious about getting a tattoo then you need to work with an artist as patient and detailed as Jeff's work is. Madison tattoo is very clean shop with an awesome zen decour that will give you one of the most pleasant tattoo experiences you've ever had. Read Less

I first got tattooed by Danny during one of those Friday the 13th things. That tattoo was small and pretty standard (as expected) but while I was getting tattooed I noticed all of these bad ass illustrations on transfer paper all over his station. Which was weird because, whereas most tattoo stations are full of past transfers or sketches on transfer paper, these were all full color and detailed. He had this unique style to his art that was part graffiti, part flash, part Spanish art and mostly just really interesting. He had these hybrid animal illustrations that really caught my eye, that were so cool and weird, I made an appointment to come back and get one. Not only did the tattoo come out even better than the illustration, it was a cover up that he executed it flawlessly. 2 years later and it's still bright, still saturated, still rad and most importantly still covered. I dug it so much I came back and got another one to match it on my other calf. From what I've seen, Danny can do all types of styles of tattooing but if you're into getting something interesting and special, sit down and brainstorm with him on an original idea or go through his sketchbook and pick something out. You won't be disappointed. Good shit Danny!!!! Read Less

I've been going to Madison for almost two years now. Something that I always express about her when I'm asked where I got my ink done, is that she's got great energy. I think that's important when finding an artist. Tattooing is an art form no matter how you look at it and I want someone who is not only a talented artist but a positive spirit. She's light on the gun and quick to the draw. My last tattoo felt like a massage. Just kidding but it wasn't bad. Madison has got a couple of guys who also work in the shop. Dave, Daniel and Jeff are super talented and very approachable. Very nice guys. One thing that stands out is that Daniel and Jeff are so polite. I've seen their work up close and personal and always impressed . No matter who you go to at Madison Tattoo, you'll be very happy. The shop is off of Magnolia Blvd between Cahuenga blvd and Clyborn Ave. They use to be on the corner but moved down a couple doors in the same building. Easy free parking.

I walked into Madison Tattoo shop and was instantly asked how can I help you. Most tattoo shops you stand around for awhile like a dear starring into headlights cause no one will speak up and ask if you need anything. The shop was clean and had a unique vibe to it. You can tell that they actually put thought into it and didn?t just put a bunch of random crap on the walls like most tattoo shops do. I was there to see Jimbo Cutler the 3rd, I was getting the gonzo logo from Hunter S. Thompson?s printing company. I normally wouldn?t get a tattoo from someone that just finished up there apprenticeship, but after seeing how fast he progressed after doing 40 palm sized tattoo?s I was impressed. His lines were straight and he paid close attention to the small detail. Due to experiences with male tattoo artists which most had heavy hands , I prefer women tattoo artist . I would say that Jimbo had a lighter hand then most which made it more comfortable unlike other artist who dug too far into my skin. I would say if Jimbo continues in this industry he has the potential to become one of LA?s best. He is a very talented artist. Above all else I was mostly impressed by the shops cleanliness, and knowledge of sterile practices. If you visit this shop you wont be treated like a moron, the artist here are friendly and open to ideas and meeting new clients. I?ve never felt more welcome in a tattoo shop. Madison tattoo would be a great place for a first timer to get a tattoo because you?ll be treated with respect through out the entire process. M.Olivas Read Less
