World Class Artwork – Sean E Bones, of Tattoo By Design, is without a doubt one, if not not, THE, best Tattooer in the DFW area. There are many shops in Irving, trust me, they ALL DO INFERIOR WORK. Don't beleive me? Go visit the others in person and look at the portfolios, or lack thereof. Sure you will get your "tattoo" cheap, but that is exactly what it will look like. Cheap. Do yourself a favor, if you are going to let someone mark your body forever, do some research, LOOK AT PORTFOLIOS, and make an educated decsiosion based on talent, not cost. If you don't, you will spend hundreds more on laser removal or a cover up, than if you had DONE IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME.
A trap to get your money – I went to this place because they had good reviews on citysearch. However, when I got there, it was in a bad neighborhood, and when I asked for ideas they sent me to google because they didnt have anything put together in the shop. The girl was nice to me and helpful when I was there, I did find something I liked, but I wanted it to be somewhat different. She offered to draw some things for me but said it would take a couple days, all the while asking that I pay a $60 non-refundable deposit for an appt. I wasnt ready to make an appt, I wanted to see the design, she said she would email at least one to me. I received a phone call 2 days later telling me my designs were ready but I had to drive all the way back to see them, again, she wanted $60 for an appt, again, I said no, she was very rude to me this time. I drove back to see the designs...they were something a 2 year old could draw, nothing I would ever put on my body and they looked nothing like my picture, it was embarrassing to even see. They again asked for $60 and they would try again. I left, with my picture. I ended up dropping by The Skin Art Gallery on Beltline in Addison and they were great. I showed the guy my picture and he had drawn out exactly what I wanted within 10 minutes, it was so creative and yet simple, something I never would have figured out on my own. I DO NOT recommend Tattoo by Design, it is a skam to get a deposit from you. I would like to add that it does go toward the tattoo, but, if you skip out on the appt, then, you lose it. I was so dissapointed that something this important to me was treated so trivially by the "artists" at Tattoo by Design, not recommended.
great work – came in from out of town. got a cowboys star. looks great. thanks. i will come back if i am in town again.
Sean E Bones KIlls – I can't begin to describe how killer my new ink is. tattoos bydesign in Irving the the spot man. Sean is a monster, get some ink NOW!!!
Huge Thanks – I went all over DFW looking for a REAL tattoo STUDIO. I found it tucked away in Irving. Tattoo by design really has it together. They took a horrible description of what I wanted, and drew a perfect tattoo, then the actual tattoo came out better than the sketch. I will go no where else.
Best place in Irving Texas to get ink – I have had two done by Mari. One was very small and no big deal. The other was larger and on a tender area. She is so skilled and so professional. She will take your ideas and run with them and produce something awesome. And remember, if an artist ever presents you with a drawing of something you really do not like, DON'T GET THE TATTOO. It's permanent. This did not happen here, I just thought I would mention it. Mari and her husband are very talented artists. You will be pleased.
I was scared. – Yeah, I was scared to get my first tattoo. I was sure it was going to be the most painful experience of my life, and I was going to pay to get it done to me. I was wrong, well, about how much it hurts. Everyone bthere was great and I will be back.
Friday the 13th BS – While every tattoo shop in town was stealing Elm St Tattoos $13 tattoo special, I went to tattoo by design and got a REAL tattoo for a decent price. I am glad I avoided the hype and got some great ink, from a real artist. (this is not a diss on Elm St, they have killer artists, and came up with the idea, it's a doody on the copy cat buttplugs) In either case. My new tattoo kicks major butt.
Tattoo supreme – This is without a shadow of a doubt, the hands down best place to get tattooed or pierced. I have been all over the metroplex looking for the perfect place, I found it at tattoo by design. Check the portfolios of all the places you visit, then come see the ones here and you can see for yourself.
Great work – These folks do some excellent ink slingin'. I would recommend anyone looking for a tattoo to come here.
