Visited this shop on a recommendation, and was not disappointed! I actually visited Exile 2, and Bob was my artist. There was a mix up with the appointment time but he was still happy to take care of me. I loved how clean and well-organized the shop was, even the bathroom! (I loved cricket's needlepoint, by the way! 👌🏻) My friends were allowed to sit with me and chat and laugh through the whole thing. Bob explained each step, which I appreciated even if I've had plenty of tattoos. He offered his own suggestions and took mine as well, and was so pleasant to work with. He made it so that I was able to really relax and be confident in his work. Being in the medical field, I can't help but watch closely whenever someone will be working on me, and I was impressed with everything. Gloves were changed as necessary, things were kept tidy, and I was tended to in a perfectly clean and safe manner. I would love the opportunity to visit in the future for a more in-depth piece, if only Texas was closer!! Thanks a million to the team and Bob, who welcomed us and sent me away with a wonderful new piece of art. Keep up with the great work, ya'll!! Read Less

Review is for Nathan Blankensh - he did a tattoo for me (last one 20 years ago) and my wife (newbie!). He was chill and laid back, able to customize what we wanted a few times in a short time frame. He came up w something custom from what we initially wanted that my wife loved. He walked her through it in a great way - not sure if we'll be back but if she wants more ink we will def head back to Nathan. Thank you sir!Read Less
