So Worth It! – I was looking for someone to design an add-on to my existing tattoo. I didn't have high hopes, not having luck with quality designs in the past. I came across Alex Alien's portfolio online & I was impressed; then I read the Studio 28 reviews and became optimistically excited! I emailed the shop right away. TJ was very responsive & we communicated this way - working out the design details; discussing cost; and arranging the appointment.
My actual experience was just as I expected & just as all the other reviewers described. Clean, Quiet, Professional, Friendly, Comfortable.... The equipment seemed state of the art & was so quiet that I relaxed almost to the point of sleep! Alex is gentle but intense & maintained a consistent level of attention to detail throughout the entire 5 1/2 hour sitting. He had the stamina to not rush through near the end.
But, the most important thing to me in a tattoo is the...well...the TATTOO! I'd gladly give up ambience for good work & luckily I didn't have to!! It was important to me that the finished product blended to look like one piece instead of two unrelated tattoos. I can imagine that's not an easy task when elaborating on someone else's work, but Alex made it happen! I love the design, the colors, the shape & the placement of the art. I thought after this I was finished with ink, but now I'm not so sure..... :)
Couldn't be better. – I'd been wanting to get a tattoo for a while, but wanted to make sure I was going to a good place. Doing a search for something related I came on the many outstanding reviews for Studio 28 at Citysearch and went in to see them.
I couldn't have had a better experience. They made it easy to talk to them about my idea, and were great about explaining what would need to be adjusted--this was just what I was hoping for since I lack the practical knowledge to know how an idea would translate onto the skin.
Everything others have said about the space is true--very relaxed, very welcoming, and very very clean. The place is open and simple-looking--there's nothing to compete with the art being created.
The tattoo experience was good from start to finish. Paul Reynolds did a sketch, then some adjustments, and then went to work. As I admitted afterwards, while he was working (where I couldn't see) I prepared myself to be disappointed, thinking it couldn't look as nice as I imaged it. But the actual tattoo looked even better! The colors, the details--as my friend said when I showed it to them: OMG, that's perfect!
I'll be proud to recommend TJ, Paul and everyone at Studio 28 to anyone looking for the best!
Thank you so much for the great review and we are so happy with how happy you are with the tattoo and our customer service. We look forward to helping you out with anything in the future!
Excellent Custom Tattoo Shop. – So my girlfriend and I were in NYC for about a week just to visit my high school buddies, and to show her where I grew up (We live in San Francisco). We knew we wanted to get an appointment for my lady to get tattooed in New York, as we both thoroughly enjoy some good body art, yet we were worried that we would not be able to get an appointment that fit within our timeline.
Thanks to C.J. and my artist from Studio 28, Paul Reynolds, they were not only able to consult her about her tattoo, and customize it to perfection, but they also helped me finalize a tattoo that is an homage to my baseball hero, Mickey Mantle.
My girlfriend's tattoo was a bit tricky for him to design, so he told us to come back the next day when they opened the shop (and that worked out great). In the mean time, Paul took my idea of a yankees cap on a skull, and transformed it into a masterpiece portrait of Mickey, half skull-faced, and half portrait. He drew it up within minutes, and 3 hours later, I had the most beautiful tattoo I couldve ever imagined.
Not only did he go the extra mile making mine look great, he did the exact same for my girlfriend. On top of the exceptional artwork, Paul is a really cool guy who is cool to talk to, and is a master with the tattoo gun.
I would highly recommend this shop to anyone who is considering getting a tattoo. I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Alex Alien, but C.J. and Paul, the two guys I did get to know, had great attitudes, and there is not one negative thing that I have to say. Overall great experience. I WILL be back soon.
Hey guys, thanks so much for the amazing review. Def worked out that you guys let us design some really great tattoos for you guys. Look forward to next time you guys pop in for some work!
An unexpected surprise - and a good one at that. – I'm new to NYC so I wanted to check out shops in a few different areas (Midtown, the Village, and a couple bouroughs). I headed into Studio 28 to discuss the last pieces to my half sleeve. While I had a few pieces in the space, they were smaller and left a large canvas. I met with TJ (owner) and Paul (artist) and had great converations with both. I was extremely surprised at the attitudes of these guys as I expected much less from a Midtown shop - I've never been so glad to be proved wrong. These guys care about the customer just as much, if not more than the artwork itself. They're looking out for your best interest with the work you want done. Even before discussing the specifics of the piece I wanted, I knew I would let these guys finish my arm.
Paul and I discussed a general idea but I gave him the green light to come up with his own design. When I went back for my first session I was stoked by what he had that day and also what he had in mind for the rest of the piece. We knocked out the first part in a few hours and are going to complete my arm in a few weeks.
As Paul is also new to the city, I wasn't even aware that he was at the shop, but I'm thrilled that he was. This guy's artwork speaks for itself, and he's a solid, stand-up guy on top of it. I would highly recommend these guys for any custom work (Alex, the other artist, is unreal as well).
Hey man, thanks so much for the great review!! We are so happy with how happy you are coming here for you work. See you for the next session!
Great Experience!!! – Im incredibly happy i went to studio 28 for my first tattoo. The shop was very clean and they were really professional and friendly. I got tattooed by Paul, i must say i love his work. He was fast and did an amazing job. Im definitely going back there for my second piece. Thanks guys!!!
Thanks so much for the review Marcos, look forward to seeing you for your next tattoo!!
Hidden Gem! – There is absolutely nothing bad to say about Studio 28!! The owner, TJ keeps that place spotless, is very prompt with returning calls or emails, and is very informative!!
Alex, my artist is great! He's patient, very focused, and has great ideas.
After spending the afternoon with these two starting a sleeve on my right arm, I would say after phase 1 I'll be heading back to studio 28 to not only finish my arm, but add to the rest of my blank canvas! I highly recommend steering away from the more "popular" shops in the city and trusting Studio 28!! THANKS GUYS!!
Hey man, thanks so much for the great review! Looking forward to your next session to keep working on that sleeve, looks great so far!
100% Satisfied – I'd been waiting to get my tattoo for years, and just hadn't made any moves. I reached out to a friend for an artist referral, and was sent to Alex Alien at Studio 28. I am beyond thrilled with the result. TJ handles the business end extremely professionally, responding to emails nearly immediately, and providing great information. The studio is spotless and cozy; a really comforting atmosphere for the service that is being provided. I definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking!
Hey hey, thanks so much! We will see you next time you need some more work done!
Positive surprise – Before going to New York I decide to do a new tattoo, and browsed the web.
And I found work made by Alex Ailen at Studio 28. Decided to send the a few questions. Got a fast response from them.
After few mail I sent pic’s of the tattoo i wanted to have. 2 weeks later I went to the studio and got a warm welcome, and also a discussion and 2 different proposals of my tattoo. TJ came up with a good ideas and I decide to go the TJ’s proposal. After 5 hrs the tattoo ready, and Alex had done a terrific tattoo.
Summery a very professional studio, and can strongly recommend Studio 28.
Timo, thanks for the review! So happy you are so happy with your tattoo, we definitely are! Hope to see you again when you get back to the country!
My new go-to for ALL my ink! – For my 7th tattoo I was searching for a studio that offers custom artwork backed by a pristine reputation-- Studio 28 is everything I was looking for. TJ communicated with me through the whole process, from my consultation to reviewing the artwork with me, and checking on my healing process. Alex Alien did an *amazing* job on my tat, which spans my inner forearm- wrist to elbow. The attention to detail, colors and artwork are all the best they could possibly be. I will absolutely be returning for all of my future tattoos. Thank you guys!!
Thanks so much for the review, and glad you love your tattoo so much! We look forward to seeing you soon for some more work!
Custom Tattoo – I have been getting tattooed for a number of years now..needless to say I have plenty of tattoos. I wanted a custom tattoo on my forearm to celebrate the birth of my son. Because it was the forearm piece I needed to do my homework for the studio and the artist. After countless searches and researches I decided to check out Studio 28 and requested that Alex Alien draw something up. After meeting T.J Cantwell and seeing the studio I knew I had made the right decision. Alex had exceeded my expectations. The only negative comment is that Alex was so amazing he made all my other tattoos look bad. I will be going back for a full sleeve in the near future and I highly recommend Alex and Studio 28 for any tattoo weather its your 1st or 31st you wont be sorry.
Thanks so much for the amazing review. Alex and I are very happy with how much you love your tattoo!! Look forward to working with you on the future projects you want to do!
