My husband and I went to 1603 this weekend on both Saturday and Sunday. I got a tattoo on Saturday evening on my left leg by Dwayne (a visiting artist for the tattoo convention) and 2 on my back on Sunday from Matt. My husband got one on his calf from Matt as well on Sunday.
My husband had a semi-quirky idea for his tattoo, and I have to say, Matt drew it up perfectly. Also I'd seen many tattoos with tinkerbells face messed up (on the web) and was worried about that happening.
Matt reassured me and he was true to his word. The tattoos came out wonderful, they are healing nicely, and for 4 rather large tattoos we only paid about 620 total. I've paid more for smaller tats (the individual prices).
Even though this tattoo shop is 2 and 1/2 hours from my house (we were in Tampa for the weekend) I would (and am) recommending 1603 Tattoo to anyone and everyone I come across that's talking about tats. I've already convinced a friend that lives in MI to go with me to get a tat there if/when she comes to visit. I love them. As long as I'm living Florida, I'll be getting my tats from 1603.
Thanks Edgar, Matt and Dwayne!
Pros: Great patient staff, fantastic work, good prices
Cons: Far from my house :(
