I have been to Paul four times now and every time he has taken the time to design unique pieces according to what I am looking for. He takes his time and tries to please every customer that walks through his doors, which is made evident by the numerous awards he has received throughout his career that he has displayed in his parlor. I have one flash tattoo and three entirely custom tattoos and everyone has resulted in a wonderful piece. My latest piece, a chest piece, is one of the finest tattoos I have ever seen. Paul worked extremely hard to make the tattoo perfect. I was in his studio for 12 hours (three for design and nine for the actual tattoo) and he charged only 600 for a piece that others would have charged 1000+. He took his time and despite undercharging me for hourly work, made sure that the tattoo was done right without ever rushing. When you enter Paul's studio you have the choice to listen to any music you would like to, although his musical tastes are great for getting a tattoo. At his old parlor you had the option of watching movies while getting your tattoo, and he is currently working on that for his new location.\r
Bottom line: When you choose Paul Stoner for a tattoo you are getting unmatched quality and an unmatched price for a true piece of artwork. He's a great guy and is much more amiable than the guys from Second Skin (who the owner was Paul's understudy). I have tattoos from both and I will never go anywhere else again for a tattoo because the experience is just not the same. Paul should be the only choice for your tattoo experience if you live close enough for his shop to be an option. I will recommend him to anyone who is looking to get a tattoo, no matter the subject matter. He is simply the best.
Pros: Exceptional artwork and atmosphere
Cons: None, unless you don't have the time for perfection
