Simply put: amazing work by great artists – I spent years waiting to find the right artist to do my first tattoo, and when I saw Erika's work, it was easy to know my search was over. She took the idea in my head and made it a reality. Not that I was asking for the most complicated image or anything, but I had a specific style and feel that i was going for. From our consultation, she captured all the nuances of what i was looking for... and did it freehand! yes, that took trust, but what can i say... she nailed it! I get compliments all the time on my ink. she and her crew are awesome! I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
The best Tattoo place I have ever been in – Art and Soul Tattoo Co. is one of the finest shops in the country. I wish I lived closer so I could easily get more work done by them. Erika and crew are top notch artists and some of the most professional people I have come in contact with. I was absolutely blown away by their willingness to work with my schedule as the artist who did my work was no longer with them and I was in town from Michigan for only a couple of days. I highly recomend them and will be scheduling an appt. for some new ink the next time I am in L.A.
They brought my idea into reality with style and heart – Okay first of all I?m a very picky person when it comes to tattoos, because you never know what is out there. Besides it?s on your body for LIFE! So when my grand father past away about 2 years ago December, I wanted to get a tattoo that would remind me of him and honor him. So I came up with an idea that I wanted but I really couldn't describe it very well, considering my art talent is less than a special person on a short bus. Any ways, a couple of good friends are pretty heavenly inked up so I asked them for ideas on great artists and great tattoo artists. they both recommended Art & Soul, so one day I met them at Art & soul tattoo and watch Erica perform magic on there backs. As I was there I wanted to watch and observe each artist and watch what type of safety and health practices they use. I was very impressed on how clean and health cautious they were. So then I was talking to Erica and my design and she referred me to her Boy friend Adam Kliss. He came in about an hour after I was there and I sat and talked to him for at least a good half hour. It was like talking to an old drinking buddy I insatiately felt respected and welcomed. so needless to say I gave him a shot at drawing up my ideas, he presented me with about 5 different variations of my idea on paper and explained each one, and what his inspiration was for doing them differently. I choose one and we corrected a little color change and after that he started to work on my arm. Now I understand maybe waiting 1 month was tough but it was worth it. I rather somebody take there time to put there heart into a piece then someone that just rushes it, and doesn't care. Adam showed me that he cared about each and every piece he puts on somebody.
I highly recommend Art and Soul Tattoo Co. There worth the drive them time and the money. Not only are you getting a great piece of art, your getting some great friends!
ART & SOUL IS L.A.'S BEST TATTOO SHOP! – I discovered Art & Soul about 10 years ago by chance as I was driving down Robertson Blvd. one day. When I went in for a consult, it was Erika Stanley who greeted me. She was very easy going and professional in discussing my tattoo design with me. I liked the fact that she was a true artist and appreciated the art of tattooing vs. some of these other artists in town who are just looking to make a quick buck. You get what you pay for and I'm happy to say that Erika gave me my first tattoo and I've been loyal to her ever since. Her shop is clean, the staff is extremely cool, and they do exceptional work. Other than Erika, the only other artist I've trusted and had the honor to tattoo me is Manu, the best tribal tattoo artist in the world, who I met as a guest artist at Art & Soul. I feel fortunate to have found this awesome group of artists, and highly recommend them to everyone I know.
perfection! highly gifted artists, comfortable, non-pretentions atmosphere. – this is the only place i would trust for tattoos. Its clean and orderly. they are strict about not tattooing minors and that tells me that they have integrity that will carry into their attention to hygene. Adam Kilss has done most of my work. People stop me on the street to ask who on earth did this amazing work. adam uses beautiful colors and is just all around a gifted artist. i show him a photo and the day of my appt he is ready with exactly what i want, yet willing to change if im hesitant, yet I never have had to change a thing. he listens to me and i can tell he pays attention to "who i am" because he comes up with art i love. danny chan gave me my first tattoo and he was great. the owner, erika stanley is great and i look forward to having some of her sought-after work, too. the other artists are highly talented and friendly.
My skin belongs to Art & Soul - EXCLUSIVELY! – When I was about to get my first tattoo about 10 years ago, I was fortunate enough to visit Art & Soul first. Even though the shop hadn't officially opened for business at that time (they were still moving in) they took the time to speak with me and answer all of my questions. I left feeling really charged up, and although I went to about four or five other shops afterward (including some of LA's most famous shops) I returned to Art & Soul and had Erika Stanley design a custom tattoo for me. I have never gone anywhere else since, nor will I. The shop is not only clean and the people extremely cool, but the care and diligence they pour into their work is remarkable. Erika has since done a custom piece for my back as well as a full sleeve. She and her mates at the shop are true professionals and will work tirelessly to provide clients with the best work achievable. This is shop where serious work gets done and a customer's dreams for the ultimate tattoo become a reality. When I'm ready for more work, I know just where to go. The name says it all!
I cant believe how perfect my tattoo came out. ART & SOUL Rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! – Let me save you all a lot of time in researching tattoo shops. I received my first tattoo last night by Edwin Marin at Art and Soul. This place is clean, cool environment and I felt completely as ease through the whole process ( almost fell asleep) I had a design picked out and what I wanted it to say in OLD ENGLISH. It was extremely important to me that it turned out the way I pictured it. Edwin must be a mind reader because he took it about 4 steps higher and made it into a masterpiece on my arm. His professionalism, courtesy, experience and talent is above anything I expected. If your looking for a tattoo that is above your expectations go see Edwin. You won't be sorry. I will be back to see Edwin again. His work is amazing.
Wonderful work from wonderful people – I have been to Art & Soul for a few years now. I go to Erika who does a wonderful job & I love all my work by her, I hope to continue to go back for more & more. The rest of the crew are really great & all of the artists are very good at other mediums of art, which was one big reason why I went there.
Awesome tattoo shop – Art & Soul did a great job with several of my tattoos. They helped me get my design just right before inking it. The tattoos came out great and everyone there was very cool. I am very happy with the work they did for me.
BEST damn tat shop around! – Well, first off, my "STORY"... I was like many tat lovers and somewhat impulsively got my first tattoo at a "hole in the wall" shop, recommended by a friend. The long and short of it, i loved the color for the first two days and then the pretty aqua blue heart with my daughter's name on it, became this funky bluegraygreen color, in a matter of days... just horrified me. I called up the "hole in the wall" shop and they just kept saying it would get better once it heeled... i knew better and i called up some new tat places that i had found on the net. Art and Soul came to my tat RESCUE!!! I first spoke to Adam Kilss on the phone and he put me at such ease, he gave me tips on the proper way to care for the old tat. Adam said, no problem, he was confident that it could be fixed and to come down if and when ready and or to check out their website. I went on the website and just adored this one black and gray tattoo portrait of someone's dad that this really cool artist, Erika Stanley had done. So i decided to go down to the salon and boy all of the guy artists were so hot, the shop was clean and vibrant AND out of the kindness of her heart, Erika, whom is normally booked solid for years at a time... took me in and restored my faith as a lover of tattoos!!!... She did a beautiful "cover up tat" of a black and gray rose with leaves... just BREATHTAKING! I was so touched by her "pay it forward" attitude & with the work that she had done & with the stellar artists, co-workers/friends that now... just from hearing my story and seeing my tat, my friends all want to go to Art and Soul Tattoo Co to get work done too. The great thing about it is that no matter whom you go to the work will be STELLAR! I watched several of the other artist work on clients while i was there and everyone had a beautiful style and or something that they excelled at! All of the artists were friendly and chatted it up like we had known each other for years. Excellent place! - Kat
