Davey Sheets did a custom piece for my daughter’s first tattoo. He checked multiple times to ensure the drawing, placement, and color choice was what my daughter wanted. the shop is clean, the staff is friendly, and there was no sense of ‘pressure’ in any way. This is one of the better shops in the U.S..
