so we were way late on our 7 day trip to vegas dropping off our design ideas...we walked in and met Matt an artist from Diversity. He seemed really cool, listed to our ideas and actually offered to come in on his day off to give us our tattoos. SWEET! so we went the day before we left to see what he had drawn up..He basicly went into our heads and drew exactly what we wanted. i was getting a heart with a key hole, and i love the swirly effect...he had it right there in front of me..and my boyfriend as well. We were stoked and ready to get inked! He is professional, interesting, funny and a kick booty artist with a long history of loving what he does and not selling out. Which to me is exactly why we didnt go to hart and huntington to get our ink. We wanted art, and refused to pay for a name. But from now on, i will pay whatever i have to, to get Matt Smith to put ink on my skin. My little brother is a tatt artist in Ohio so i am somewhat familiar with the scene. Matt put what we wanted where we wanted and we went home happier than we ever expected.! I would recommend this shop to anyone going to Vegas. To others who say they were rude or bad...well you might want to think about YOUR attitude going into THEIR shop. Artists are just like everyone else and dont like jerks! But enough about that...10 stars in our book. And we have been there and done that on many occasions. Their whole staff chilled with us and took cig breaks and told us about themselves and to me that is what a shop is about...the inner circle of artists bound by one love..art! and if you go into a shop and just pick some random piece off of a wall, expect to get a crapy tattoo. If you go in with the love of art and ideas and express them to your artist, guaranteed, they are going to respect you. MATT SMITH....ask for him, he rawks!! THANKS MATT!! WE ARE AMAZED AND SOOO HAPPY!! CANT WAIT TO SEE YOU AGAIN!! All of you actually!! : )
Pros: Service, knowledge, SKILL!!
Cons: the crackhead who my bf and the staff almost had to beat to get off their property! best memory of vegas EVER!! LOL
