I got a large passionflower tattooed on my shoulder by Jesse. The outcome FAR exceeded my expectations, it is STUNNING. Jesse is professional, meticulous, highly skilled, & easy to be around (the tattoo took several hours). I felt the pricing was extremely fair, especially given his stellar work. The environment, too, was very professional. I absolutely would recommend this business to anyone, & fully intend to return here for any future tattoos.
Excellent with Newbies – I recently turned 18 and like many kids my age, decided I wanted a tattoo. I wanted to do my research before I trusted my skin to just anyone so I checked out all of the parlors in the surrounding areas. I was surprised to find the cleanest and most professional of them all was in my hometown, a place called homeward bound.
I brought in my own design, the one I had known I had wanted to get since I was five. I was immediately greeted by an artist named Adam who informed me that it would be a piece of cake. I set up an appointment for the next day.
I arrived five minutes early and saw that Adam was ready and raring to get started. The entire process took about 2.5 hours during which I was entertained by hillarious stories from both Adam and the owner, Jessie. By the time it was done my back was covered in beautiful artwork and I couldn't wait to show it off.
I had an excellent experience, the tattoo turned out great, and I have already made plans to go back. I would reccomend this place to anyone looking to get their first tat or their tenth
The best tattoo parlor in WI – I have gotten 2 tattoos from Jesse and one of them was my sons newborn hand print,it is amazing how good it looks. My husband has also got all of his work done there and we won't go anywhere else. Jesse is not only a great tattoo artist but he also draws a lot of his work himself. To me,if you are getting something put on your body for life go somewhere you can trust and Homeward bound is that place.
Wonderful Environment of Friendly Professionals. – I have gone to Homeward Bound Tattoo for every one of my tattoos. The parlor is a clean, relaxed, smoke-free environment which really does feel like home. The artists and piercers are all lovely people who care about what they do and actually make great efforts in what they do; they are patient, kind and understanding. These are not people who come to work drunk or wield tattoo machines in a pompous manner.
I cannot continue to speak for all of the artists, but I can continue on with Jesse.
Jesse is the most meticulous perfectionist I have ever known (what he calls "picky"), but it works in this setting. This is a man who will spend thirty minutes drawing out a single letter because the "B" is not up to his high, high expectations - but he never fails to consult with his clients and determine what it is they really want (and if the color of this lady's dress is red or pink or tan, and is it okay if the placement of a block of text on your forearm will leave a disc of space at the top, and will it be comfortable for you if your arm is moved in suchandsuch a manner?). This is a man who slaves away at his work in every sense of the term, until his back aches, his head is splitting and his hand is cramped.
Jesse truly is an artist. He is Renoir with a tattoo machine, and I do not say that lightly.
Professional, patient and understanding – I know Jesse and am familiar with most of the employees at Homeward Bound. Although, I, myself, have never had the pleasure of having a tattoo done by Jesse, I do know several people who have and their inkwork is phenomenal!
I went to Jesse for an emergency. My dentist removed my tongue ring and I couldn't get my jewelry back in and secure. Jesse and Brian helped me to select the jewelry that was right for me (as the threads of my old jewerly were worn) and then were kind enough to "install" it for me. I have 6 piercings but I'm such a baby about changing jewerly. Brian and Jesse were professional, patient and understanding.
If I find more socially acceptable places on my body to pierce - I will definately go to Homeward Bound. In any event, they've got a customer for life when it comes to purchasing and changing jewelry. I can't recommend them enough!
