Mike and Mingo are both excellent artists! I highly recommend them! They each have a certain style which can cover most of anything you want done. They are very upfront and will tell you if an idea is possible or not and will not tattoo anyone if the idea will end up looking less than perfect. I will definitely be a repeat customer and have all my work done here for as long as they are there! Great work guys! Keep it up! Read Less

Mike was so friendly and professional yesterday when he did foot tattoos for me. He clearly explained every step starting with the images I asked for all the way to aftercare. The shop is 100 + years old which gave me a lot to study while he was working!  It's a great environment with lots of natural light. My previous tattoo experiences were in dark places...I thought that was the norm for the industry! I would recommend Mike anytime--talented and nice! Read Less

Let me start by saying: I'm a very short, very round, nearly-40yr old woman who has been a stay-at-home mom for over 18 years and I have Fibromyalgia (I feel way more pain than the average joe).  I spent over three years searching for a tattoo shop where I wasn't looked at like an alien, treated like a leper (I wish I were exaggerating), out right ignored, or told they wouldn't work with me because of my illness...it didn't help that I was a total tattoo virgin.I'd been into nearly every tattoo shop north of the river that wasn't actually on 6th St. the day I walked into Freedom Machine.  And, truth be told, I wasn't very hopeful.The warmth with which I was greeted completely took me my surprise.  I tentatively explained what I was looking for: a whole back piece.  Again, the girl I was talking to surprised me with actual interest.  She gave me the obligatory books to look through, and I was very pleasantly surprised a third time: the art done in this shop is amazing!I set up a time to meet with Ryan Dodson, after being deeply impressed by his work.  Then I went home and did my homework about the shop and about Ryan, everything I learned gave me hope that I'd finally found someone who could do the work I wanted done so badly.I've been working with Ryan for nearly a year now, he's fun, funny, remarkably talented, totally approachable with even the dumbest questions, and, best of all for me, has a very light hand.  He's been willing to work with me around my hectic schedule, and amazingly understanding and patient about my pain levels.  He's introduced ideas I love and we're incorporating into my full back piece, and he's suggested things I wasn't into without trying to dictate to me and without that horrible ego thing that seems to run rampant in some shops.I now have two tattoos, a very feminine vine-like tattoo on the side of my breast and a gorgeous Mockingbird on the top left quarter of my back (it's a segment of the full back piece).  Both of which have fully healed remarkably quickly.I can't recommend Freedom Machine highly enough; the atmosphere is casual and fun, the people are the definition of cool, and the art that comes out of there is beautiful!

Getting your first tattoo should be a right of passage that comes when you are ready to receive it. I had always taken a point of pride that I had no tattoos, and that I just couldn't think of anything I would want permanently attached to my body.After years of looking at ink art, and researching artist that live in my area, I settled on Freedom Machine as my first experience.I walked into the shop in mid September, and after talking to David Parker about my ideas for a first Tattoo, and what I wanted it to convey, David took about 20 minutes and drew up something that later would become my first Ink.My first indication that this was a good fit, was his willingness to listen to my ideas and his reassurance of my first Tat fears.The second indication that I choose correctly was the fact that David was booked for the next month. We set a date for October 25th. a month later.When I arrived on the 25th, David was ready and waiting for me, he had his station all set up for our session, he touched up the drawing he made for me, and after taking some measurements, he transferred the drawing to a form that would imprint it on my arm.The nerves built up for a sec, and after the first line, I was ready, and for the next two hours, David was gentle with the needle, and responsive to my pain when I indicated it. Amazing first session and amazing artist.The other guys in the shop that day, Ryan and Mike, were all supportive and it was cool seeing how they all interact naturally around clients as they gave other people tattoos.At the end of the first two hour session, I had a great looking outline, some shading and a sore arm. After giving me some care instructions, we set out a date for touch ups and color, and again we had to schedule a month out, since David is fully booked all the time. Cant wait for the final look.I went back the day after Thanksgiving to have some color add to the Tattoo. David Parker worked for another hour adding colors to the already beautiful outline he did the last time. Still have one more sessions to finish this bad boy and I am already planning my next Ink.I decided to post this before the Tattoo is finished. I will be going back on a few days after  Xmas. I am sure David will do a great Job. I am already thinking about the next one...Ps. the Pricey Selection in the $$ category is simple as this - You get what you pay for... Read Less

Mike was so friendly and professional yesterday when he did foot tattoos for me. He clearly explained every step starting with the images I asked for all the way to aftercare. The shop is 100 + years old which gave me a lot to study while he was working!  It's a great environment with lots of natural light. My previous tattoo experiences were in dark places...I thought that was the norm for the industry! I would recommend Mike anytime--talented and nice! Read Less

Let me start by saying: I'm a very short, very round, nearly-40yr old woman who has been a stay-at-home mom for over 18 years and I have Fibromyalgia (I feel way more pain than the average joe).  I spent over three years searching for a tattoo shop where I wasn't looked at like an alien, treated like a leper (I wish I were exaggerating), out right ignored, or told they wouldn't work with me because of my illness...it didn't help that I was a total tattoo virgin.I'd been into nearly every tattoo shop north of the river that wasn't actually on 6th St. the day I walked into Freedom Machine.  And, truth be told, I wasn't very hopeful.The warmth with which I was greeted completely took me my surprise.  I tentatively explained what I was looking for: a whole back piece.  Again, the girl I was talking to surprised me with actual interest.  She gave me the obligatory books to look through, and I was very pleasantly surprised a third time: the art done in this shop is amazing!I set up a time to meet with Ryan Dodson, after being deeply impressed by his work.  Then I went home and did my homework about the shop and about Ryan, everything I learned gave me hope that I'd finally found someone who could do the work I wanted done so badly.I've been working with Ryan for nearly a year now, he's fun, funny, remarkably talented, totally approachable with even the dumbest questions, and, best of all for me, has a very light hand.  He's been willing to work with me around my hectic schedule, and amazingly understanding and patient about my pain levels.  He's introduced ideas I love and we're incorporating into my full back piece, and he's suggested things I wasn't into without trying to dictate to me and without that horrible ego thing that seems to run rampant in some shops.I now have two tattoos, a very feminine vine-like tattoo on the side of my breast and a gorgeous Mockingbird on the top left quarter of my back (it's a segment of the full back piece).  Both of which have fully healed remarkably quickly.I can't recommend Freedom Machine highly enough; the atmosphere is casual and fun, the people are the definition of cool, and the art that comes out of there is beautiful!

Getting your first tattoo should be a right of passage that comes when you are ready to receive it. I had always taken a point of pride that I had no tattoos, and that I just couldn't think of anything I would want permanently attached to my body.After years of looking at ink art, and researching artist that live in my area, I settled on Freedom Machine as my first experience.I walked into the shop in mid September, and after talking to David Parker about my ideas for a first Tattoo, and what I wanted it to convey, David took about 20 minutes and drew up something that later would become my first Ink.My first indication that this was a good fit, was his willingness to listen to my ideas and his reassurance of my first Tat fears.The second indication that I choose correctly was the fact that David was booked for the next month. We set a date for October 25th. a month later.When I arrived on the 25th, David was ready and waiting for me, he had his station all set up for our session, he touched up the drawing he made for me, and after taking some measurements, he transferred the drawing to a form that would imprint it on my arm.The nerves built up for a sec, and after the first line, I was ready, and for the next two hours, David was gentle with the needle, and responsive to my pain when I indicated it. Amazing first session and amazing artist.The other guys in the shop that day, Ryan and Mike, were all supportive and it was cool seeing how they all interact naturally around clients as they gave other people tattoos.At the end of the first two hour session, I had a great looking outline, some shading and a sore arm. After giving me some care instructions, we set out a date for touch ups and color, and again we had to schedule a month out, since David is fully booked all the time. Cant wait for the final look.I went back the day after Thanksgiving to have some color add to the Tattoo. David Parker worked for another hour adding colors to the already beautiful outline he did the last time. Still have one more sessions to finish this bad boy and I am already planning my next Ink.I decided to post this before the Tattoo is finished. I will be going back on a few days after  Xmas. I am sure David will do a great Job. I am already thinking about the next one...Ps. the Pricey Selection in the $$ category is simple as this - You get what you pay for... Read Less
