I researched many shops before going with Sacred. The shop itself has an awesome "feel" with the attached art gallery and overall layout. The customer service is fantastic. Kevin responded to my emails immediately. Everyone in the shop is friendly and makes you feel welcome. I had my first session with Rods to cover a tattoo I got 30 years ago. (yep, I'm a older guy). The work Rods did is top notch. I can't wait to go back for second session. I highly recommend Sacred.
Go See Nick – 9/2011This review is for Nick at Sacred Tattoo. Nick has tattooed me three times so far. I followed him to Sacred from his previous shop. He is professional in both demeanor and technique.
In my case he creates my tattoo from photos i have taken in nature. His eye for color and form is great.
Although we live in Hawaii I always plan to see Nick when we come to the city.
Nick is now working on a backpiece for me. I gave him the elements I wanted and he is free handing the design. Looks good so far. Not finished yet. I have confidence in Nick which is why we returned to him.
Started at Wooster Social Club ended up at SACRED TATTOO! – Went over to Social Club because I work down the block and assumed the best artists must be there because of the tv show. Showed the picture I wanted tattooed and I felt I was sold really hard. The guy at the front desk gave me a quick quote and I felt like I wasn't really being heard or catered to. Figured if Im about to spend almost a G that I should get to ask more questions. Didn't feel there was any room for that.
Someone told me about Jon Mesa over at Sacred Tattoo. I met him and not only is he a cutie pie and super laid back, he listened to my concerns (I'm a dark skinned black woman that wanted color in my tat. He gently explained that artistically it wouldnt be as vibrant as i wanted. Truthfully so did the guy at Wooster but when he said it it felt so final. Jon listened as I asked many questions. Then he said the words I needed to hear- he understood what i wanted, he promised to make the piece pretty and romantic! SOLD! My money goes to Jon. Started my tat this past Friday, I was offered a snack, joked with the guy at the desk. I was a bit impatient but Jon calmly did my tat. I finish next 2 weeks and I want to get more. I stayed till after closing and they didnt rush me out. They make me want to hang out there. It was so chill. I'm a Sacred Tattoo fan!
best tattoo – This is the best place for full sleeves and full back work. My friend got one sleeve here and then came back the next month for the other. He was just planning on having one but they made it so comfortable for him, and he was so happy with the look of it that he had the other done as well. I have gone to them for a lower back piece I am having done, I still have to get it finished but that's on me because of my schedule, not anything to do with them. They make the experience as painless as possible and their aesthetics are superior. No trashy miami stamps here. Recommended.
The BEST place for any mods! – These guys are just the best. They employ only the best, I trust everyone that works there. I have gotten a lot of important major work done by artists there, and I can say with total confidence that I recommend them to anyone for any thing they offer! They are great! and the people are warm and friendly, the atmosphere is very relaxed, they are extremely clean and hold themselves to very high standards. They exceed all expectations, really fantastic people, and a wonderful shop!
Good times, great tattoo – Came here for my fourth tattoo, got the last one from Bowery Tattoo before it closed and reopened here. I spoke to Kevin on the phone a few days prior and explained what I wanted. He told me to come in and they could help draw something since I couldn't find the cowboy boot I wanted. My indecision made way to a lot of laughs with Kevin and Matt, but in the end we nailed it. Quick, not too painful, good music, good vibe and lots of joking around made this a great experience. Will be back!
Great experience – I got my first tattoo here nearly 10 years ago, and went back for a 2nd recently. The front desk guy was great (sorry, forgot his name) and helpful; and Shey is a great artist. Despite my design being totally different from the genre that he specializes in, he really nailed it. It was exactly what I wanted.
Sacred is clean & professional, the service is great, and the price is right, too.
Diamond in the rough – We were in NYC on a weekend vacation. We initially walked in to get out of the pouring rain. The shop was very clean and spacious. The front desk was very pleasant. We looked through the artists portfolios. All of them had very nice work. The last one belonged to Shey. I was unable to speak with him as he was busy tattooing. I returned later that night to speak with him and had nothing but good vibes from him and the shop. I returned the following day. I should mention that they opened the shop an hour and a half early to accomodate my schedule. If you go to there website, you can find my tattoo under Shey portfolio - joker. I have many tattoos and this one is by far my favorite. Not many artist can do portraits, but Shey is amazing. I highly recommend this shop for anyone looking to get a tattoo. I will definitely be returning, all the way from Ft. Lauderdale!

If I could give this place 10 stars I would!! I would never go anywhere else... =)
Sacred Tattoo; Best of NYC! – I came into your shop back in mach of 09' and was just a walk in. I was impressed by the cleanliness and professionalism of your parlor. Kevin and Matt were the most curtious guys I've ever encountered in my whole tattoo experience. I've been getting tatts since 1982, and you all are by far the best. Matt did two memorial peices on my forearms, commemorating the passing of both my Mother and Husband. He took his time to get them perfect. He is an extraordinary artist and since then, I have recommended him, and the studio, to many admirers. SACRED is now the only studio I will get my work done. (unless of course I run into HANKY PANKY IN AMSTERAM!! JJ!)
Cheers to you all and I hope that SACRED continues to be top of the line!!
