I have been tattooed by Brandon for 19 years, there’s just no other person I trust with my skin. He lays down some of the best work you will find. The shop is clean, comfortable and has just the right vibe.”

Whether he’s working on a huge piece or a small simple piece, Brandon brings the same level of passion and detail to the table. He truly embraces the ART of tattooing. He truly gets that tattoos last forever and that process should be treated with respect. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!”
