Body and Soul is my number one pick of tattoo studios in Sherman Oaks. As compared to the high end shops like True Tattoo or Shamrock, I think you get an equally good tattoo here for a better value. But Body and Soul is not a cheap shop. Tattoos aren't cheap and you do have to pay more for better work. You really get what you pay for in this industry. I had Jeremy do a koi fish that turned out beautiful and healed perfectly. He has a light hand so the pain was minimal. I would also recommend Jayman if you want great Traditional work. They are nice guys but of course they have a little attitude, they are tattoo artists! It comes with the territory.
Pros: Great artist who play really good music
Cons: the atmosphere is a little sterile
