Dead Ed did a great job for me. Gave me good honest opinion on how best to do the tattoo I was looking for. I like an artist that is going to Invision my tattoo and tell me his opinion on how to make it the best instead of just doing it the way I think it should done. More work in a couple of weeks. Can't wait! Read Less

I went in a couple weeks ago for a drawing to get a tattoo done. The artist gave me an email address to send pictures to for a reference and I did the same day and set up an appointment. Then I never got a response from him, that he got the pictures or to confirm the appointment. I gave him my phone number on the day I went in. So I called the day before my appointment was meant to be and asked to speak with him, and he says he never received the reference images, he also said he wasn’t setting up any more appointments, which was weird cause I had one. He said he had the drawing done, so left a message for him to call me back and I never got a call back. Needless to say I will go to a different place to get my tattoo done. And I had to get a 50$ deposit down to get it done. Doubt I will get that back... Read Less

AMAZING staff.... I have a great fear of needles but I had always wanted a few unusual piercings in me ears because of how they look. James is Absolutely, hands down the best piercer and most knowledgeable that I have EVER met. He doesn't just take your money... He really looks at and cares about what procedure you are getting done and will be honest about placement and even if you should go through with it. He is very calming and caring with you and will not rush you in and out. I also had my 1st tat don't there nearly 20 yrs ago. The owner and anyone who works there was very patient, very knowledgeable, paid attention to detail, clean, and comfortable... I will NEVER go anywhere else. Read Less

My husband wanted a tattoo of something our daughter drew. So I thought it would be really cool if she could watch her art come to life. Otis not only let her watch him do it but also gave her advice and encouragement about her own art. It's always nice to see an accomplished artist take genuine time out and offer their knowledge to the younger generation. He even gave her an art kit to take home.

I had James do my tragus a few months ago. Since then they have healed perfectly. He actually said they wouldn't heal fast but within a few weeks they were healed just fine. During the piercing process he talked me through exactly what he was going to do and what was going to happen, I was shocked and it made the process go by so smooth. I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a piercing. They also were one of few places that carried titanium, for not an outrageous amount! Read Less

I went here for my 3rd tattoo. After getting my first tattoo in Michigan and my second one at Carls in North Tonawanda I decided to try out ASA. I got a wonderfully done tattoo on my ribcage by Dead Ed and came back for my 4th piece on the other side that is still in progress. I loved how comfortable Ed makes me feel and how It's not typical artists who think they're better than you. Ed is older and very skilled in what he does. If I still live in NY he would be my guy EVERY time. Love this place! Thanks Ed! Read Less

I went to get a tattoo while my husband was in Iraq to support him being in the service. I had drawn out the exact design I wanted, made my appointment, waited over a month and when I got there the artist had moved my design around because as he told me the design could not be done the way I wanted and he refused to have his name on it and wouldn't do it. It's funny because I left and went to a walk-in's welcome parlor where not only were they able to do my tatto the exact way I wanted and so much better than I could've imagined, but also told me it wasnt the first time they've had walk out customers from the place due to lack of artist's ability! My tattoo still looks amazing after 5 plus years which the "artist" who refused said it wouldn't. That whole place is a joke! Read Less

I stopped into American Skin Art last year to make a tattoo appointment with Ed. I brought a picture to reference what I wanted done and was given an appointment for 6weeks later. The day of my appointment I took off work and arrived early and ready to be tattooed. Upon arrival I was told Ed had left for the day without explanation and would not being doing my tattoo and that another artist would "try to fit me in!". I was extremely frustrated but was willing to be flexible. I then asked to see the sketch that Ed had drawn up for me. I was told Nothing had been sketched!!! I then sat in the shop for two hours waiting to be"fit in"and got blatantly ignored!!! At that point I told the receptionist that I was leaving and would not be returning... I've told this story to many other people and they've had similar experiences!!! Apparently Ed is quiet full of himself and blows off appointment frequently.... Read Less

I have been going to American Skin Art for many many years now. Everytime, I am greeted by friendly, unique and amazing people.Everything is explained in great detail you, before during and after each and every procedure. They open everything up directly in front of you, prep before and after. They show you exactly what you will be getting before hand. And so on.The art that James performs for Body Piercings, is beyond anything I have ever seen before. He is so talented and trust him for everything. He is extremely knowledgable and passionate about his craft. I will only let him pierce me and anyone I know, from here out. I recommend everyone I know to go and visit all the wonderful Artists at the shop! Read Less

I went to this shop for a wrist tattoo. I left without it. I had an appointment for over a week. Showed up, no one knew who I was or that I had an appointment, when I said who it was with, they all looked shocked because the artists was gone. They assured me he would be back soon so I waited. When he finally did arrive half hour later he was completely stoned (which means he is not inking me today) but rather than make a scene I let him look at the art. He proceeded to tell me that I could not have the art I wanted because the lines were to fine. Funny I looked won at my husbands leg and was proven otherwise. I have had artists tell me that I could not have something before because of the detail, but through experience I have come to learn that those are just the lazy artists, who don't wanna be bothered with actual work. I walked out of the shop that day,and will never be back.The only reason this shop got 2 stars instead of 1 is because Ed did an amazing cover up on my cousin. Maybe Ed should rethink some of his staff. Read Less

I'd recommend him to anyone looking for a piercing. They also were one of few places that carried titanium, for not an outrageous amount! Read Less

I went here for my 3rd tattoo. After getting my first tattoo in Michigan and my second one at Carls in North Tonawanda I decided to try out ASA. I got a wonderfully done tattoo on my ribcage by Dead Ed and came back for my 4th piece on the other side that is still in progress. I loved how comfortable Ed makes me feel and how It's not typical artists who think they're better than you. Ed is older and very skilled in what he does. If I still live in NY he would be my guy EVERY time. Love this place! Thanks Ed! Read Less

I went to get a tattoo while my husband was in Iraq to support him being in the service. I had drawn out the exact design I wanted, made my appointment, waited over a month and when I got there the artist had moved my design around because as he told me the design could not be done the way I wanted and he refused to have his name on it and wouldn't do it. It's funny because I left and went to a walk-in's welcome parlor where not only were they able to do my tatto the exact way I wanted and so much better than I could've imagined, but also told me it wasnt the first time they've had walk out customers from the place due to lack of artist's ability! My tattoo still looks amazing after 5 plus years which the "artist" who refused said it wouldn't. That whole place is a joke! Read Less

I stopped into American Skin Art last year to make a tattoo appointment with Ed. I brought a picture to reference what I wanted done and was given an appointment for 6weeks later. The day of my appointment I took off work and arrived early and ready to be tattooed. Upon arrival I was told Ed had left for the day without explanation and would not being doing my tattoo and that another artist would "try to fit me in!". I was extremely frustrated but was willing to be flexible. I then asked to see the sketch that Ed had drawn up for me. I was told Nothing had been sketched!!! I then sat in the shop for two hours waiting to be"fit in"and got blatantly ignored!!! At that point I told the receptionist that I was leaving and would not be returning... I've told this story to many other people and they've had similar experiences!!! Apparently Ed is quiet full of himself and blows off appointment frequently.... Read Less

I have been going to American Skin Art for many many years now. Everytime, I am greeted by friendly, unique and amazing people.Everything is explained in great detail you, before during and after each and every procedure. They open everything up directly in front of you, prep before and after. They show you exactly what you will be getting before hand. And so on.The art that James performs for Body Piercings, is beyond anything I have ever seen before. He is so talented and trust him for everything. He is extremely knowledgable and passionate about his craft. I will only let him pierce me and anyone I know, from here out. I recommend everyone I know to go and visit all the wonderful Artists at the shop! Read Less

Unlike a lot of places American Skin Art makes sure every needle that is used is sterile. Not only that but they have some of the best artistic work I have ever seen.

I went to this shop for a wrist tattoo. I left without it. I had an appointment for over a week. Showed up, no one knew who I was or that I had an appointment, when I said who it was with, they all looked shocked because the artists was gone. They assured me he would be back soon so I waited. When he finally did arrive half hour later he was completely stoned (which means he is not inking me today) but rather than make a scene I let him look at the art. He proceeded to tell me that I could not have the art I wanted because the lines were to fine. Funny I looked won at my husbands leg and was proven otherwise. I have had artists tell me that I could not have something before because of the detail, but through experience I have come to learn that those are just the lazy artists, who don't wanna be bothered with actual work. I walked out of the shop that day,and will never be back.The only reason this shop got 2 stars instead of 1 is because Ed did an amazing cover up on my cousin. Maybe Ed should rethink some of his staff. Read Less
