I have had a few tattoos done at Misery Ink. Most recently I had a tattoo done for my son. A gift to myself for my birthday. I walked in knowing I wanted violets and a butterfly. My artist was Vince, who took the time to find pictures and design the tattoo for me, around my existing tattoos. With his knowledge of tattoos and the response the body will have over age, he helped my decide a perfect placement for my new piece. I came back a few weeks later for a few touch ups, which just totally took it over the top! While there for that visit, I asked his opinion in possibly recoloring an old flower tattoo I have. I had a picture on my phone of what the real flower looks like, and compared to what I had, they looked nothing alike. There was some serious black involved that he, among a discussion with the other artists at Misery Ink, had to decide if it were cover-able or not. They all agreed it would be and we started covering the black that session. I recently had it recolored and finished, and let me say that I could not be MORE PLEASED with his work. With his expert knowledge of mixing colors, shading and pure talent, Vince FAR EXCEEDED my expectations. I will be getting more work done with Vince at Misery Ink. Very unlikely I will go anywhere else. Thank you so much Vince!!
Additionally, the facilities are VERY clean and appealing compared to other places I have been in. They make sure you are comfortable and the staff is friendly and helpful. Each artist has their own private area to work in, that can be closed off or left open, to the preference of the customer. There is no smoke smell as I read in a previous review, the occasional smell of incense from the store next door is calming and not over powering at all.
