Total scam. We found this guy at one of the local Tattoo Expos and set up and appointment. We knew exactly what we wanted - huge back piece that we had basically designed already. The owner took our deposit ($300) then never did the final design work. Was a no-show for three appointments that we scheduled with him. Then, stopped taking our calls or calling us back. When we finally did catch him at the shop, he had every excuse on the planet - dog died, mother sick, employees quit, grandfather sick, out of town, phone shut off for non-payment...the list goes on. When he agreed to refund our money, he said he didn't have it and would have to go to the bank the next morning. Of course he wasn't there when we showed up at the schedule time, nor was he there later that afternoon. Yesterday, he was obviously there playing video games when we drove by, but when we knocked on the locked door, he didn't answer and had the shop lights turned off.
Unless you want to donate to the owner's video game habit, run screaming from this shop.
