The (Tattoo) Man of My Dreams – I first met Billy Hill on a snowy December morning last year when I ran into Envy as soon as they opened. At 31, I was there for my first tattoo, and I was a little nervous about getting one. Billy quickly put my fears to rest, trying not to laugh when I asked him if I was going to cry. He promised I wouldn't, only half-hiding a laugh. That was when I knew I had come to the right place. He made suggestions to me about the Celtic design I had picked out and helped me make decisions about color and shading that would make the design more me. Billy kept me entertained throughout the entire experience with stories about his life and questions about mine. In fact, I almost forgot I was getting a tattoo. Honestly, it hurt that little! Now I go to Envy for all my tattooing needs. Not only have I gotten gorgeous tattoos out of the experience, but I have made some really great friends. If you're ready to get your first tattoo or your just next one, Envy is the place to go!
Amazing Shop – I have had several tattoos done by Billy Hill at ENVY SKIN GALLERY and love every single one of them. Its more a hangin out with your friends experience rather than a non-personal awackward experience where then entire time you are afraid of the artist or to talk. The entire staff is awesome and makes you feel like a person and not a payment. Its nice to have a shop that makes you feel like you can just come in a talk about questions I might have about certain ideas I have and actually feel like the staff cares. I have gotten tons of compliments about Billy's work from tattoo enthusiasts and non tattoo fans. I have never had a bad thing said about the work he has done on me. I would and have recommended ENVY and Billy Hill to more people than I can count
seriously – I highly recommend Envy Skin Gallery because Billy Hill is one of the best (if not the best) custom tattoo artist around. If you want a hot custom drawn piece, he's your man because he somehow knows how to interpret exactly what you want with a gun and ink. My husband and I constantly have people approach us saying "WOW! Where did you get your work done??" So that should attest to his creativity and quality. Also of note, is that he works really fast (though it is never a rush job). Why is speed beneficial? Because time is money and I should know as I've got a full back piece that is 30 hours in (and very close to being finished!). I will say that with his speed comes a bit of heavy-handedness, but tatties hurt regardless. Also, Billy is a great conversationalist. My sessions were always hilarious, anecdotal, and meaningful with bits of teeth clenching ... so much so that Billy Hill has become a great friend.
Best Tattoos this side of the galaxy – Billy Hill and his staff of scrubs-wearing Mr. Clean look-a-likes are polished professionals. Billy himself wields the tools of his trade with laser-guided assassin like precision. The Gallery itself is not your typical tattoo shop/waffle house bathroom sh*t-h*le. With it's clinically clean environment , it is more like a laboratory. An awesomeness laboratory. I really do think Mr.Clean works there. I've been to three worlds fairs and this is the only place to get inked.
Absolutely Awesome – I stumbled into Envy for the first time in January of 2008. Since then I have received tattoos from four of the artists that work there, or formerly worked there. It's a great place where the artists are talented, the environment is soothing and clean, and I usually get a couple of good laughs as well. Billy certainly has the experience and is a very knowledgeable artist, perhaps one of the best I've ever met in my years on this planet. One of the best parts is that they will create a one of a kind tattoo just for you, that no one else will ever have. That is pretty awesome.
Best tattoo shop – Billy Hill came to me at the suggestion of a friend who had recently gotten some work done at Envy Skin Gallery. It was his first tattoo and I wished my first tattoo looked that good! Because of this, I recommended Billy to a friend with some original artwork looking for a good artist. Billy cleaned it up in about 15 minutes on paper and made a solid piece look fantastic. My friend got the ink done that very day. My first tattoo with Billy was a Japanese kanji script. I think I may have lucked out since he had recently traveled to Japan and that added some extra 'zen', because I always get the most compliments on his tattoo. I just got a small tattoo done in Vegas and it just wasn't the same. The atmosphere or the talent are really unmatchable with Envy. I will likely never get ink done anywhere else but here...unless Billy relocates to Vegas.
Best tattoo professionals in Columbus – Billy Hill is an amazing talent who puts all of his energy into his art. His years of learning from the best artists in the US and abroad afford him the ability to deliver a fantastic tattooing experience. He keeps the cleanest shop I've ever seen. Envy Skin Gallery is cleaner than my doctor's office. I have fourteen tattoos by Envy. I have been spoiled and I will never go anywhere else.
Envy Skin Gallery-Great Tattoo Shop – The staff at Envy are friendly and are welcoming whether it is your first tattoo or your 500th. Very knowledge about what they do. It is a clean, spa like environment. Billy Hill and his staff bend over backwards to help their clients. I would highly recommend Billy Hill and Envy Skin Gallery for anyone looking to get the best looking, quality tattoo around.
Glad I waited – It took me 50 years to get my first tattoo and I'm glad I waited. Not only was I unsure what I wanted for my first one, I also had to make sure the artist was a good one! I came up with a rough idea and then meet BillyHill, who helped me finalize the idea and then did an awesome job creating a sweet tatty. Great place, highly recommend Envy Skin Gallery. BTW, I now have three!
Envy Skin Gallery – I recently got a tattoo at Envy, which was done by Billy Hill. It wasn't his own artwork, but it definitely came out looking less than satisfactory. I had him trace a specific design that I wanted, and the work looked as if it had been done by my four-year-old nephew. Also, after the tattoo had heeled, I noticed that there was an extreme difference in the color from one side to the next, and went back to have him touch it up. He told me that it was hardly noticeable and that I was making a big deal out of it because I look at it the most often. I paid a lot of money to have a PERMANENT tattoo on my body, and if I am not completely satisfied, I think the "artist" should do everything he can to fix that. I won't be going back to Envy.
