Simply Amazing – Erika is an exceptional artist who knows how to tune in to her clients on a spiritual and 'soul' level. Her work is impeccable. My piece on my arm is simply stunning.

Fantastic Place and Misha is Amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – This review is so overdue it's not even funny because I got my tattoo done last year! After some serious research I chose Zulu tattoo and I am so glad I did. Misha is beyond amazing. She worked with me in designing my concept, letting me know that I could do as far as color (I'm black so I didn't know if that was an option for me). She is so sweet, warm and friendly and of course an excellent artist and super fast. It took her only three hours to do my tattoo which went along my ribcage. The tattoo healed beautifully and I receive so many compliments. Even though technically this was my second tattoo I really consider it my first , true work of art. If you want a unique, personal, piece of excellence then get your work done at Zulu. Also I have to add everybody is so cool, inviting and friendly and happy, from Keleigh to Zulu to just everyone. The shop is clean, chill, relaxing and has a very positive spiritual energy throughout. I'm planning on getting another tattoo done by Misha (she doesn't know this yet lol!) which will be a cover up of that first tattoo and I can't wait to work and create, collaborate with her again. While it is pricey let me just say for the level of craftsmanship and artistry you will receive it is worth every single penny.

Rocked!!!!!! – I just got my first tattoo from Kody and I am so grateful. I am a girl and when my dad passed away a few months ago i decided that i wanted to have something from him that show my feelings forever. I had to wait a few weeks to have my appointment with her but it worth it. She is friendly, nice and a great artist. Now that I got it, I really LOVE my tattoo. Its exactly what i hope. Everyone there was friendly and the place is quite and very clean and nice. Thank u guys for everything and Kody girl u kick assess!!!!

Not felling like part of the TRIBE – Trying to find the right shop is like finding the right job you call and go on interviews to several locations for day on end. Oh what is this a cool calm relaxing place yes this will do but unfortunately i did not take that home with me. Just make sure that the artist is not looking to leave the shop like in my situation shortly after i had booth me arms done not a cool and relaxed felling anymore. DONT GET LEFT LOOKIG FOR A MEW TRIBE.

Zulu Nation ... the People's Parlor! – Zulu Tattoo is representative of global ideas, creative people & artistic expression. Zulu is talented, yes, but it's his spiritually-minded approach to giving you your sacred mark. It's a ritual, an induction into the tribe, but all done with love and laughter, stimulating conversation and coupled within a sacred space that truly exist for the people -- All People!

40 hours, and back for more. – Zulu's shop is a welcoming and friendly environment. All of the staff is friendly and treat you as an individual, understanding that their work will have a permenant impact on your life.

Zulu himself is not only a brilliant and ntuitive artist, but a businessman of integrity.

I have had over 40 hours of tattoo work done from various artists at Zulu Tattoo, and I would recommend this studio to anyone getting a tattoo.

Adam Kilss is top notch/ Zulu's shop is welcoming – First and foremost, Adam Kilss is an amazing ARTIST and I would highly recommend his talent to anyone! His attention to detail with shading is next to none. That being said...this is my first tattoo so I was extremely picky with my choice of artists. After many visits to other studios, his work was the only work that screamed ART instead of tattoo. Because of this, I waited some time for his move to Zulu Tattoo.

He proved incredibly patient and understanding about all of my questions and concerns even the most trivial of inquiries. I truly appreciated Adam's ability to take my concept (which was pretty crude) and transform it into an eye-popping art piece. While I was extremely excited about the initial sketch I was given, it has no comparison to the final product that was placed on my back. During my session, he was friendly and professional. It seemed he recognized when I was feeling anxious or in pain and helped me through the rough patches of the session (which were few BTW) It made my first experience relaxing and comfortable. Again, I highly recommend Adam Kilss to anyone looking to get a tattoo.

Regarding Zulu tattoo, I felt very comfortable in the studio. The overall vibe of the place in calming and the music was peaceful. During my first 3.5 h in the chair, time seemed to progress quickly. The staff of Zulu was great as they answered many of my questions as well. Also had the opportunity to meet Kody (another tattoo artist) who proved welcoming and cool. Shop was extremely clean and meticulous.

Anyone interested in getting some artwork on their body should visit Zulu tattoo....ask for Adam :)

Second session is on the books and I cannot wait to complete my piece.

First Tattoo - Best in class staff! – At 42 I decided I wanted to get my first tattoo and I did alot of research on places/artists/designs. I finally found inspiration from a New Zealand artist and took my ideas to Zulu tattoo. My first tattoo ended up being a full back piece that is just breathtaking. I love it and give kudos to Khani, Kelly, Kali, and Kosi as all played a vital role in why I chose to go to Zulu. It was an overall fun, artistic, spiritual experience to visit them and undergo my first inking. I was very receptive to their artistic ideas and recommendations and would highly recommend them. If I decide to get any more work done, I would look forward to going back!
