The artist doesn't even know how to copy things right. 5/22/2011

I got my very first tattoo last year, on my Birthday, July, 2010! Of course I did my research like everybody. So I found this Propaganda Tattoo, which owns the highest review, so I decided to give it a try. I went there before the midnight, and got all excited about getting my first tattoo. The environment was clean, the artists seems nice. The tattoo I want was a line from a Spanish poem, I gave the artist the book, and he copied the poem that I want on my body. Again, it was my very first tattoo, and I gave him the book, I DID NOT expected my artist DID NOT even know HOW TO COPY a line from a book, and MISSPELLED it. I did not check it, because I didn't expect there would be something wrong with this artist's eye, mind, or whatever that is controlled his brain to copied down the wrong thing. Next day when i found out that his mistakes, I went back to the shop, I did not ask for the refund, and he didn't offer, he only told me the only thing he can do is adding more lines, adding more stuff? why would I let him destroy my body even more after I know he owns very little intelligent? I would never go back again. more

Great shop! 10/21/2009

I was just in this past Saturday to have blaze work on some plumerias on my shoulder. They turned out AMAZING. The best work I've had done yet, and I will continue to go back to him and this shop. Great welcoming environment, also fun! I will highly reccomend this shop to everyone I know! Pros: friendly, inviting atmosphere Cons: none! more

Very Professional! 9/25/2009

Chris gave me my first tattoo and he did a great job. He's very professional and an excellent artist. I was a bit nervous about getting a tattoo, but he talked to me like a guy getting a tattoo rather than acting condescendingly. in fact, every time I talked to him, and the other artists at Propaganda, there was a geniune feeling of concern, like they appreciated my business and wanted me to leave as a satisfied customer. I highly recommend Propaganda, and especially Chris. LOVE the tattoo! Pros: Informative and easygoing more

My Best Tattoo Experience 9/12/2009

My stepmom and I went to Propaganda for memorial tattoos for my papa who just recently passed. We heard about the place through a friend and Im very glad we did. The artists there were very personable and talented and gave my stepmom and I exactly what we wanted. I got a crimson clover and my stepmom got a wizard and as they are healing they just get more and more beautiful every day. I had Blaze do my clover and Thad did the wizard and they both did an incredible job. I plan to go back next month with my sister for her to get her memorial tattoo and Im getting a lily done for my grama who has also passed. These are a great bunch of guys. more

Legit 9/5/2009

The guys at Proganda are HOT, but better yet they are the BEST at what they do! The artwork was legit and they took their time to give you what you want. It is some of the best work I've seen. I will totally go back when I get my next tat! Pros: Great artists and hot guys Cons: Nothing more

Propaganda Tattoo 7/5/2009

I was referred to these guys by my barber and I was pleasantly surprised by the professionalism, peronal attention, and artist merit these guys have. Pros: Awesome Experience, Good pricing, Killer Atmosphere!! Cons: none..................! more

loved my experience! 7/1/2009

This was my first tattoo as I got a set of 4 paws down the side of my ribs. Everyone told me to expect it to be a little on the painful side as I picked a place to get my first tattoo that was mainly a bony area. Chris Primm was my artist and he had such a light touch that I barely felt anything! It was no walk in the park, but by the end of it, I was starting to fall asleep. It was such a great experience and took no time at all! Pros: very light touch Cons: a little more on the expensive side, but worth it! more

Cool Shop 6/8/2009

I followed Joe Arden in to the Voltaire shop to finish up a stellar Scarecrow tat on my left shoulder (like a one third sleeve). I was already pretty stoked about him because he's just a fun guy and a great artist, so I was pleased to find out it seems like all the rest of the artists are pretty similar. The whole place has a relaxed and personal atmosphere. It's perhaps a bit small and old, but unless you're working there for several hours a day, it's not an issue. Kinda adds charm in fact. If you're there certain times of the day you get massacred with fresh baked doughnut smell, too. Good place. Go get some ink. Pros: artists and shop are cool Cons: kinda small, but it's SD so whatevs more

Zoger is the man 6/6/2009

I was referred to the college area Propaganda by a friend who got a rad tattoo by Zoger. I went in with a vauge idea of what I wanted and I explained it to him (Zoger). He sat down with me and took 2 hours drawing different designs until we got the one I liked. We busted out my Mer-man tattoo and it looks GREAT!!!! I'll never go anywhere else for my tattoos. Pros: Great, personalized service. Amazing artists Cons: They could use a soda machine. more

I agree, Propaganda is the best 6/5/2009

Walked in and immediately was greated by a friendly staff. Not your typical ""I am so cool, dont bother me"" attitude that you get at other shops. My girlfriend and I went to two other shops in the area and it seemed like they didnt even want to talk to us so when we went into Propaganda it felt really comfortable. I really like the artwork on the walls and Johnny and Zogger did amazing tattoos. It was cool because we were both able to get our tattoos at the same time. They took our idea and made it into a beautiful piece of artwork. I wouldnt go anywhere else more

College Area Tattoo 6/5/2009

The best in business. I love Propaganda Tattoo. I went to this shop because it is close to my school. I got a great tattoo from Travis the bear. He knew exactly what I wanted with just a short description. If you want a great tattoo from some really nice guys then go to Propaganda. Pros: best in college area and travis the bear Cons: parking more

So Fresh and So Clean 5/26/2009

I go to SDSU and have alot of choices for tattoo parlors in the area. My friend and I went to 4 or 5 shops in the area before walking in to Propaganda. Their shop is the nicest and cleanest looking for sure and they guys who work there are not scary at all. In fact everyone was really nice. My tattoo was of scripture on my side, it really hurt but it came out beautiful and I get compliments on it all the time. I can't wait to show it off at the beach. I even got an email follow up a few days later asking how my tattoo was doing and to call or email them back with questions. Thanks Propaganda, You Guys are the ones that ROCK!!. LOL Pros: Nice guys, good prices Cons: parking isnt very good more

Great Tattoo shop 5/24/2009

Guys are friendly, helped me through my first tattoo. Did the job well, offered free touchups, professional, reasonably priced. They're active in the community - a dude with apparent mental disabilities came in to get a CD burned while I was in there. Just a good place. more

kick a$$ talent, chill atmosphere 5/15/2009

i went up and down visiting several tattoo shops in the area, and when i walked into propaganda, it was nothing but professionalism, and smiles. Pros: works with all your ideas! Cons: they don't have water! lol more

Best Place for a Tattoo! 5/10/2009

Propaganda Tattoo is an awesome place to go for a tattoo. I got my first tattoo, a japanese symbol for eternity, a week or so ago there and it was a great experience. Everything is so clean and the guys are really cool. Shawn did my tattoo and he was great, made sure i was comfortable. He is very talented and I couldn't have asked for more with my first tattoo! I DEFINITELY reccommend Propaganda to anyone interested in getting a tattoo!! more
