I have 2 tats from point blank tattoo and my husband has at least 5 all have held their color well, some after more than 10 yrs. T-rav did my latest one a very realistic turtle with a quirky personality. The details are amazing and it healed very quickly. Big Matt specilizes in custom piesces and did one for my husband that he and i had the idea for. Big Matt took our idea helped us figure out what would work in the area he wanted it, what would look best with the existing tats and put toghter and awesome piece. Everytime i have been in the shop someone is always cleaning when they are not tattooing. The guys constantly use antibacterial stuff while they are tattooing you. T-rav did a portrait on my husbands leg that looks so real you expect it to walk off or move. he loves it an gets lots of comments on it at the gym. They recently repainted and thouroughly cleaned the shop also. I know this because they were shutting down to do this when i went in to schedule my turtle. My husband has tattoos from some other local and out of state artist but so far these are the ones i like the best. Some one else did my other one but I like the soul that was put into my turtle the best.
