“I couldn’t get into my regular tattoo shop until October for an ankle tattoo, so I decided to give Blood&Cutts a try since I saw so many great reviews. Man, did this place live up to the hype; a super friendly guy with tons of experience and fantastic artistic ability. Everything was clean, I got the tattoo at a great price, he was on time, had many streaming services to watch while getting the tattoo done, my tattoo looked absolutely amazing, and he was super professional/personable. Screw my other tattoo shop, I will defiantly go here for my next tattoo and you should too.” – John S.
