I was a bit nervous about getting my first tat back in Jan of 2004, but after researching, my sister and I settled on Sacred Grounds. They're health certs were up to date, the facility was spotless, new needles used the 3 times I went in for ink, and a professional staff. Adam was my artist at the time and took my ideas and created my design. The end result was truly remarkable. 8 years later, the color and line work is just as vivid as the day I had the work done. My sister's tattoo, done by Adam as well, has also stood up quite well. I highly recommend if you are looking for ink, head to Scared Grounds in Bradenton. Ask for Adam, you will not be disappointed with his work! I look forward to visiting again and having more work done the next time I'm down in Sarasota.
