I was a little nervous, but still had my heart set on getting a piercing...I left without getting anything done because of a strange smell, and lack of interest in help. If I felt welcomed and there was better communication, I would have gotten work done.
Dusty is a great tattoo artist and a great guy to boot.My wife and I both have had him do our tat's and we are very pleased.I think he is working on his own now that the shop owner closed the shops but he is worth tracking down if you want someone of his talent to put ink in your skin.
Exactly what I wanted thanks Donny
Ace did an amazing job on my tattoos. He has a great attitude and is very professional, even my wife who has been contemplating getting a tattoo for years but never found an artist she felt comfortable with was ready after meeting with Ace and seen that it's more about giving you a piece of art that you will love forever than slapping just anything on you to make a buck. While Ace was tattooing us we talked alot about family his a very proud father and husband you learn that right away. So it was a nice change of pace to be tattooed by and talking with another family man rather than hearing your usual tattoo shop conversations. I would and do recommend him to everybody. And if you're still not sure check out Ace's Facebook and see what I'm talking about /ace.chandler
This place is absolutely amazing! Dusty and Ace are quite possibly some of the friendliest tattoo artists I know that work in shops. As soon as you walk in they greet you with huge smiles, they love to joke around, they don't care how many people you bring with you to watch you get your tattoo done. Fantastic!
They even stay late if needed, Dusty stayed till 2am to finish a tattoo for a friend of mine. The hours for their shop say they close at 9pm!
The artwork is wonderful! For instance in Dusty's artwork book towards the back he has a before and after picture of a girl with a huge scar acrossed her stomach that he covered up for her with some flowers and stuff, you can't even tell there was a scar there!
I'll never go anywhere else if I don't have to.
Oh the end of my ""Con"" was : Nothing, unless you're under 18 because even with parental consent they won't work on you.
When I walked in to Poda Tattoos I was greeted by both artist and they made me feel very welcome. I felt as if a was a guest in someone home rather than a place of business. After looking through the artists' portfolios, which were full of amazing tattoos, I chose Ace to do my tattoo. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted but I had a idea, flowers and a butterfly on my lower back, but I didn't want it to be like everyone elses. Ace took what I told him and started his research right away. First he helped me decide what kind of flower suited me best. Together we looked up many different types of flowers on the computer, I chose the tiger lily. Next we decide what shape butterfly's wings should be. When it all came together it was even more beautiful than I had imagined. Now when it came time to get the tattoo Ace showed me the brand new sterile needles and the expiration dates, I didn't even know needles could expire. Then he showed me the tubes that hold the needle in their sterile pack and an indicator that showed that they had been sterilized, all this put my mind very much at ease. Finally when the tattoo was done again I was amazed by Ace, the tattoo was beautiful, it was so much more that i even expected, all the beautiful details and colors are amazing. So, in my review, my trip to Poda Tattoos was a wonderful experience, the guys there are very friendly and inviting, and I would highly reccomend Ace as your tattoo artist.
