Shadow was awesome! I came down from Canada on a road trip and messaged him before I left to get a quote and sketch done. My tattoo came out exactly how I envisioned it, he is an amazing artist. Very helpful and very friendly! Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area looking for a tattoo.Original recommendation
My first tattoo and he was utterly amazing. Great person just to talk to.Original recommendation
Gave him a rough image of what I wanted, he fixed it up till I was happy about it.
Of course, very queer/transgender/gay friendly.
This review is even before I go into to get my tattoo. Mr. Shadow has been so patient with me and really listened to all my ideas that i felt he needed some pre-props. I know this tattoo will be legend "wait for it" dary! I will post a follow up review after the ink :)Original recommendation
Shadow is how all tattoo artists should be. He is a great artist and he is very easy to work with. He has done two tattoos now for my wife which have both turned out amazing and she's getting her third from him soon. I went with her for the last one and his demeanor and attention to detail is tops. I can't wait to get my first from him. Keep up the great work.Original recommendation
