“Easily one of the most friendly, clean and professional tattoo shops in Albuquerque. I worked with Loren Todd and not only did he perfect the stencil placement before we started, but he walked me through all of the products that they use in the shop. As far as the tattoo itself it came out better than I could’ve imagined. His use of negative space helps it pop on my skin tone better than a lot of my other tattoos. I would absolutely recommend at least stopping by. The artists are friendly and welcoming and there’s always some cool art to look through."

Morgan M

"I'm not sure I can say enough amazing things about this fabulous studio and it's artists! Nicole Sonobe has started a gorgeous sleeve project for me and I couldn't be more ecstatic about the design she created! The studio is one of the most comfortable places I've ever been in. Well lit, extremely clean, beautifully decorated, and very calming. The music was just right to give some energy to the room without being overwhelming. You can tell all three artists genuinely enjoy working together while they do what they love. I cannot wait to go back for my next appointment!"

“Incredible shop! John is a master at his craft. Process was incredibly smooth and makes you feel comfortable the entire way. From bouncing ideas, to the prep beforehand, throughout the session and aftercare, he is very informative, which so ideal when getting tattooed.
His portfolio is amazing and can bring anything to life. Original style and the passion put in will make you feel like you couldn't have gotten a better piece of work.
Everybody in the shop makes you feel right at home.”
