Jay at texas tattoo – I got tattoo'd by the guy named jay. I must admit, the tattoo is way different than the art that i initially brought in, its way better. He took the time to evaluate the drawing and redraw it for me. I ended up with a awesome tattoo. He has the eye of the tiger.
Great Reputation.............. – .......
I have altered my initial review. It would be unwise to judge an entire tattoo studio based on one persons, bad day. I have seen work from this shop, and I have heard rave reviews from many people. Simply put, I was not personally impressed with customer service. I got the sense that I was negotiating with a rock star to play at my daughters wedding, in other words I was not that important.
Piercing genius – Talented, honest, very clean and knowledgeable: I knew he was the right guy to do the job. Look around, you will agree. Highly recommended!
Great Experience!! – I went to the location off of Westheimer to get a navel piercing and I am VERY happy with the results. It's a clean facility and they will treat you professionally and respectfully. Zac did the piercing for me and he had all the information for how to maintain your piercing clean and free of infection. I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking about getting a piercing. :)
First Timer. – It was my first time getting a tattoo and I was soooo scared but the guys at TTE totally helped me to relax. The artist's name was Steve, and he was a pretty easy going guy he did an amazing job and although they are a little pricey I wouldnt go anywhere else. The artwork was totally amazing and came out exactly like I wanted it. My husband was the one that told me about TTE and had gotten one from there as well several months before and the older guy that did his JC knows how to keep conversation interesting(in a good way!) while still keeping his attention on his amazing work. The atmosphere is kinda rocker and the guys look intimidating but they are easy to get along with. They are very professional and clean as well. I'm definitely looking forward to my next tattoo and i know my husband is as well. TTE is the place to go if you are looking for artists with skill and cleanliness.
the "black tattoo artist named JAY." – Ay yo i get all of my tattoos done at this location by Jay. Jay is the by far the best when it comes to tattooage. He did my first large tat and he's done all my ones since. He truely is an artist. His work is by far the best ive seen in houston so far, and he does an incredible job customizing tattoos so each of his pieces are not only exceptionally done, but unique. I wouldnt go anywhere else. Go to texas tattoo emporium off of hwy 6 and give Jay a holla. Take my word for it, you wont be sorry.
The Only Ink!! – Antone is the the MAN! He hooked me up with my second tat and I wish he would have done my first one. He did a sick Koi & Lotis for my wife that is Mag worthy(3 settings to finsh). I will be going back to finish up my chest. If it will not look good he will not put it on you. They are the best! He is in On Sundays but make sure i am not in the chair First.
Best Artist so far! – I got a tattoo of a very detailed bird and Antione (the asian dude) was awesome. He got the tattoo EXACTLY the way i wanted it and Im a perfectionist. Yes, it was pricey but I would never settle for a cheap looking and cost tattoo. Its on forever so do it right! Want ur tattoo to look awesome? GO TO TEXAS TATTOO EMPORIUM! See Antione over on Westheimer or "Red" over on the 1960 location. (Lupe is awesome too!)
AWESOME Tattoos! – Got my first tattoo yesterday, got it at Texas Tattoo Emporium, and I couldn't be happier. Everyone was extremely professional and very helpful. The shop was immaculate (no worries there). The artist (Jim Colvin) provided some great input to the tattoo design and worked with me when I asked for a couple of changes. His suggestions beat my ideas hands down and he made it a better tattoo than I ever could have thought up on my own - he really knows his stuff. Couldn't meet a nicer guy, he kept up the conversation to keep my mind off what he was doing (yes, it did hurt a bit but you get used to it after a couple of minutes), and he did an AWESOME job. I'll be back in a couple of months for my next one. Highest recommendation!!!
