The Mighty Mighty Stained Skin – I have been getting tattooed at Stained Skin for the past six years. The staff at Stained Skin are some of the most professional, talented and cool artists you will every meet. All of my work has been created by Anthony who listens to why I want a specific tattoo and what it means to me. All of his work has gone way beyond my expectations. Anthony makes sure I am comfortable, get a break when needed, have a drink of water or a bathroom break if neeed. I have so much trust and confidence in Anthony I have fallen asleep while being tattooed. Some of my tattos have appeared in International Tattoo Magazine. I believe that attests to the quality of work at Stained Skin. The main priority at Stained Skin is for the client to walk out with a tattoo they love for the rest of their lives.
The Only Shop I Trust – I tried a different artist some years back and wound up going to Anthony to correct their work. That was over 7 years ago and over 20 tattoos later. The shop is top notch and they treat you like family whether it's your first tattoo or you've been going there for years. Anthony is not afraid to listen to your ideas and design a piece that 'fits' your vision while adding his years of experience to make sure it will turn out perfect. I've recommended to friends and family who all have enjoyed the great service, artistic vision and competative prices.
Great Experience – I recently had my first tattoo done by Anthony and the whole experience was great. He worked with me on the design, added his own personal touches and it turned out just like i had imagined it. Anthony's artistic and tatto skills are very high. He is very good at what do does! I thought the shop was clean and had no issues with other artists. I would definitely recommend the shop and Anthony to my friends who are thinking about getting a tattoo. As far as pricing goes, you get what you pay for. His pricing seemed very resonable for the level of skill he provides.
AWFUL PLACE TO GET A TATTOO!!!! – I have had a couple tattoos at stained skin on high street. The owner Anthony was late for most my appointments, and had to reschedule twice. I felt scared and stupid for adding my opinion about my tattoo and he kept wanting to go bigger and make it thousands of dollars more and get me more and more undressed. It was awful getting tattooed in the cold dingy shop with no music, no water to drink and no tp in the bathroom. I felt like Anthony squeezed and pulled on my skin harder than any artist and didn't take his headphones off during my whole tattoo. A few times i had to raise my voice to get his attention, He touched his phone several times during my tattoo and I didn't think that was right. Other artist looked me up and down and kept coming in during my tattoo while i was in a compromised position. The whole tattoo cost 240 dollars more than we agreed to and my tip was not enough by the look of his face. I have tried to email the shop and call the shop to reschedule about ten times and still no response. I had a terrible time and I will never go back to Stained Skin or anything affiliated with it .
great place to get some ink! – I really enjoyed my experience at Stained Skin. Anthony was my tattoo artist and he did an amazing job. The vision that I initially had for my piece changed a bit right before the day I was going to get the tattoo. Anthony was flexible in adapting the design to make it work with the new twist I was throwing into it. He adjusted it to make it exactly how I wanted it to.It turned out perfect and I couldn't be happier with the way the design turned out.The shop is very professional and clean and everyone is real nice and helpful. I will definitely return and I recommend the shop to others.
turned a vision into some awesome ink! – I took the time to research shops around town and found that Stained Skin was the shop I was looking for. Anthony DuBois was my artist and he truly met and exceeded any expectations that I had. He is "by appointment only" for a reason. I have already made another appointment!
My advice: custom pieces are the way to go. Do your research and match your artist to the style you want. You will be happier and your artist will be too!
Best tattoo shop in Columbus hands down! – I get most of my tattoos done here, and they are the bomb. Naryan has tattooed me and he is awesome! Anthony and Phil are there, and they are both incredible too! I have been to alot of tattoo shops, but this is by far the best in Ohio!
Best tattoo Ive ever gotten!!!!! – The guys are great!!! Very friendly inviting atmosphere. Anthony was my tattoo artist and he did a great job. Great bedside manner and very well priced for the amount of work I had done.
