This is in response to Mr. or Ms. Sweetz28, you have no idea of what you are talking about. I personally respect and admire all the hard work Aracely, Adrian, Shanice and Ruffo put into this tattoo shop. They are all REAL GINUWINE GOOD PEOPLE. Aracely was blessed with a creative, vulgar and beautiful mind and was blessed to be an American with that right to express what she wants to say on Facebook. Now you can say what you want as well, that is your right. But give credit where credit is due, how many people subscribe to her on Facebook? Is she not running a very well known tattoo shop on a THEE busiest street in the Southside? Just because you have a closed mind or are jealous of her and what she has, doesn’t mean you can go and leave such a disrespectful message about the business. Adrian and Ruffo’s tattoo work is known around town for how awesome it is, Shanice is a young prodigy at piercing and Aracely is doing an outstanding job on the net “REPPIN” the business and managing it as well. The tattoo shop is family orientated, clean, professional, fun and welcoming to anyone and everyone who comes in with a good attitude. I’ve got to know these people on a personal level and they are even more awesome than you would ever know. This is the only place I go to get all my tattoos and piercings done. So Sweetz28 you are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to mine. My opinion is, you are talking out of your rear end. Sincerely, Jonathan Reyes

I had my tattoo done there totally on a whim while on a vacation with my husband and kids. I'd had a version of what I wanted in my mind for years, but I am no artist. I described my scene to Norm who turned it over to Matt. The piece that Matt came up with blew my mind. Never in a million years, could I put my description in such detail. The problem was that his art, ended up being quite a bit bigger than I had in mind. (Did I say that this was my FIRST tattoo?) I admit that I was not the easiest person to draw for! After a few re-dos (and, admittedly, cutting some of his cooler things out of the design for the sake of size and placement) it was the perfect size and perfect tattoo. Matt did an amazing job! I have wanted this tattoo for so long and cannot imagine that anyone else could have come up with something so perfect me. Being that this was my first tattoo, and I have no other experience with them, I have no clue if I charged appropriately- however, I'm thrilled with the work and would rather love something I may or may not have paid too much for than underpay for something that looks like crap. I will be going back.

My overall experience from the time I called to the time I stepped out the door was FANTASTIC!! I chose custom ink tattoos based off of their awesome website and several excellent reviews. I loved being able to see each tattoo artist's personal picture and individual work before I came in. I wanted a 10 year old tattoo that was fading revitalized. i was greeted with a smile and a handshake by my artist Jason. The shop was energetic, clean, and comfortable. Jason was quick to assess my old tattoo, answered all of my questions, offered a more than fair price, and made me feel comfortable every step of the way. He was extremely gentle during the whole session and constantly asked me how I was doing. I'm a medical professional so this resonated with me. Jason took my tattoo to the next level. His hand is steady. His work is beautiful and precise. He is an extremely talented artist. I am beyond pleased. I've asked him to help me create a mandala piece as my next tattoo.
This shop was recommended to me by not just one but most of my friends. Everyone seemed to get a tattoo at Texas Taboo except for me, so I said Hey, I have to see what all this talking is about........I went in confident of what I was getting was perfect, (owl) but when the artist started talking to me to add this and add a few more tweeks I was surprised of how better his idea was.....Now, that right there was an artist to me! He started talking about color, and roses, for a second I thought it was going to be a lot of money but his pricing was f*king awesome!! I went in confident, and left feeling on top of the world.....I loved it, there is no other place I would get my tattoos after going inside here....I have to give credit for the shop being so unique! from the texture on the walls to the paintings, the color, and decorations...Everything was so clean!
Awesome place!! This shop has the friendliest people who are amazing artists!!! The shop is bright and welcoming and the work is so amazing!! Adrian and Ruffo some of the best artists I've seen, definitely the BEST in San Antonio!! The piercer there is the cleanest piercer, she makes sure everything is sterile and makes sure everything is perfect. I've gotten tattoos and piercerings at different shops, and I can't believe it took me so long to get beautiful quality work. So, if you're looking for the best work for affordable and reasonable prices, don't go anywhere else!! I just got a tattoo and I'm already planning my next one! :)

A friend and I went to have 2 collar bone dermals in February done by laura I think her name was, she has a heart on her chest, anyway right after having them done when we got home the first one was hanging down the foot of the dermal was not in correctly, my friend removed hers and went backed after healed and had the new girl Amber do it, she has no issues. I went yesterday to have 2 more put in by amber, she did a great job! I'm was so happy and pleased with her work, customer service, and friendliness all around. If you plan to get dermals make sure to get them done by AMBER.
