let me start off by saying, i researched a lot, and being from san jose, i looked seriously around that area for awhile. when i entered shops i was either ignored or made to feel like i wasn't 'cool enough' to be there; totally weak. as soon as i called balck and blue, the receptionist was so sweet, recommended an artist that would be best to give what i wanted... i knew i had found my place. the whole experience was well worth the little drive. rocio is the best, hands down. very calming, funny, down to earth. and talented to boot. i have had my tattoo for a month and i get compliments all the time. she did an amazing job covering up what i had and making the whole piece clean and beautiful. go here, seriously. SO important to feel at ease in a place that is marking your body permanently, and the talent is ridiculous.
Pros: thumbs up, baby.
