Evan is awesome – I have had several pieces done by Evan at Steadfast. He is a great artist and I am very pleased with the work he has done for me. He does a great job of taking your ideas and creating a piece of art with them. He really balances your input with his own ideas and turning vague ideas into pictures. As long as I am in Austin, I will get all my ink from him.
Also, the shop is very clean, and Evan is always on time, works quickly, charges fairly, and is easy to get in touch with.
EXCELLENT WORK – I would have given this place 5 stars, but the customer service was not great. I went in ready to get a tattoo, but no one greeted me. It was as if I was not even there. I finally asked about getting a tattoo and they just said to wait. They boast about good customer service, but there is no customer service at all. Of course, I was there for a tattoo, not a friendly face.
The artist was great. Bonnie had a lot of experience and it shows. She did what we wanted and was VERY straight forward about everything.
Bonnie is my go-to girl for a tattoo and I would definitely recommend her to anyone interested.
Steadfast Tattoo – Pete is one of the best artists I've ever had the pleasure of working with. I sat down with him for two sessions to expand on a tattoo I had started elsewhere. It wasn't going the direction I wanted, so after consulting with Pete he was able to turn it into something beautiful, and exactly what I had always wanted! I can't recommend this place enough. Every time I get asked "do you know any good tattoo shops?" the answer is always STEADFAST! Pete is extremely talented, friendly and easy to work with. I will definitely be back for more tats here in the future.
Steadfast – I've been seeing Pete for 10+ yrs. I've spent many hours under the gun and the results have always been fantastic. He's a creative and talented artist that will take your ideas and flesh them out into something truly remarkable. Highly recommended!
As good as it gets – I showed up with a hideous tattoo on my arm begging for help. Instead of settling for something that would simply cover it up...Pete designed an incredible piece of art. I cannot recommend him enough. The shop has a great...relaxed vibe. I'm a customer for life.
Tattoo – I first visited Steadfast tattoo about 2 months ago after being referred by a friend. I had been wanting a tattoo for several years and had not found artist i felt comfortable with. After meeting with Pete Gilcrease I know my search was over. Within a month I was back getting my first tattoo. Since then I've had my second sitting, since i'm getting a half sleeve done and I am very happy with the work Pete has done. I'm already making plans for my second tattoo and my first one is only 3/4 done. Pete is a very talented artist and i strongly encourage everyone to check him out.
Steadfast Tattoo Saved My Tattoo – Okay, so many moons ago I got a tattoo from a horrible artist. -I was young and dumb....as the saying goes!! Well, I had been disgracefully hiding this piece for years, until I went to Steadfast.
I was referred by a friend who gave the shop stellar reviews. When I walked into Steadfast I was greeted by super nice artist who appeared to be interested in "my" end goal, comprised of their artistic knowledge. I worked with a guy name Pete who turned my disgraceful piece into something more like "graceful" and show off worthy!
I must say it was so refreshing to go to a shop where the people there genuinely seemed really nice, cool, and very talented.
My experience was the best of all the places I have been to get tattooed....
Go to Steadfast....you won't be sorry.....or regretful for that matter!
Thanxxx Steadfast....Ya'll Rock!!!
Great consultation and custom work – The guys at Steadfast helped me out again! I had an idea for a very customized tattoo that was hard for me to describe exactly and when I went in to the shop with a really crude sketch of what I wanted, they listened carefully to my description and were able to draw up an amazing custom tattoo for me. No need for a re-draw and the tattoo turned out awesome. Thanks again Steadfast!
Nothing but the best... – I have been getting tattooed by Pete Gilcrease (owner) of Steadfast Tattoo for 5 years now, and i have nothing but good things to say about the shop. Great service, knowledgeable staff and a great environment to get tattooed in.
more terrible service – Let me first say I have 7 tats and 1 piercing from other shops, so I do understand how the process works and what constitutes good business.
I visited Steadfast by Duval almost 4 weeks ago after discussing my needs with the owner via Myspace. When I went to the shop he wasn't there, and the guy working there said he didn't know anything about their even having a Myspace, and he couldn't order jewelry for me or help me. He also informed me that the owner only works until five, so i'd have to visit during work hours.
Since then I've visited twice more, both in the middle of the day, and both times after conversations with the owner on Myspace.
On both of those occasions, the owner wasnt there, and I was told no one knew anything about my jewelry, nor could they help me unless i came back when he was there.
They were rude to me, and deliberately less than helpful, and for that I decided to take my business elsewhere, and so should you.
