Great tattoo – This was my first tattoo and I ended walking in and got a dude name Allen and he tattted me well. I had a great experience and will be back.
Best experiences – I've had three of my four tats done at Shaw's. Their reputation proved true each time. I've even insisted that my daughter, niece and nephews go there for their first tattoos. I've used several tattoo artists there...each great artists. I just got my fourth tattoo. Joelle (sp?) did it. He was SUPER amiable. He was very professional but very friendly at the same time. He, by far, is my favorite there. I think he works weekdays during the day and Sat and Sun nights. Better call to be sure.
Best Shop in Town, Thank you Jeremy – If you are looking to get a tattoo, this is the place to do it. I've had work done there for twenty years and everytime I've gone there, the artists have been professional and courteous. Getting your first can be pretty intimidating but these guys put you right at ease. Jeremy Robards did my last work and I was extremely pleased. He was careful, precise and perfect in his execution. His background as an artists clearly showed through on the creative aspect and understanding of all the elements and how they come together. What is great about him is that he frequently opens the shop (right on time) so you can get in before the crowd hits. I can't recommend anywhere else higher.
Horrible experience, Undependable- Do not use Jeremy Robards – I am writing to warn any of you that if you go to Shaw Tattoo, I would not recommend Jeremy Robards. I originally wanted to work with Shaw Jr at the recommendation of a friend but Jeremy convinced me to let him do it. I gave him my deposit and design ideas on a Sunday and he said he would have a prototype by Monday or Tuesday. I followed up using the email he gave me, NO RESPONSE. I called a few times and when I finally got him he said that he had left the design at his house. He said he would scan it and send it to me, and I waited
Wondeful Quality Tattoos – I really liked this tattoo shop, the people there are friendly and professional, Sure the prices are a little bit higher, but the work is amazing, wether you are looking for black and grey or color, they have what I think to be the best artists there are! The really tall one, I believe his name is Keith, he does some wild color packed tattoos. I mean vibrant... I found the place I'm gonna stick with!
Great place – Got ink done. Place was VERY clean. The artist were very nice. They focus a lot of quality. It cost probably $20-$30 than your average tattoo place, but you are paying for a LOT higher quality. They also are medically licensed in the state of TX. So they can't tattoo below your ankles or below your wrist.
Excellent place to get a tattoo!! – Shaws is fantastic. My husband, daughter, son and I have been there a total of 5 times. This place is so clean you could eat off the floor. Everyone is so nice and patient, especially with first timers. They are seasoned tattoo artists that know their craft. If you want a great tattoo, this is the place to go. The only time I was uncomfortable was when they played a couple of songs that were very off color, but hey - I am a 52 year old woman. I have to realize that comes with the ambiance. What was I expecting - church music??! They are very attentive, calming and true experts. I have two tattoos from there and will be getting my third one soon. I recently went to another place with my son, and they were so rude, we ended up walking out. I'll just say they are in the Conroe/Woodlands area, and the name has something to do with "monkeys"... I will only go back to Shaws. You should, too.
Editorial Review – Clean and credible tattoo-only studio specializing in custom designs since 1979.
Great experience--repeat customer – As a chick getting my first tattoo, I was a little freaked out, but everyone was nice and polite and helpful and professional. My first tattoo took about 3 hours to do (so I guess I have street cred now?), but I felt comfortable and soothed by the artist. It was an original design, so I met with him beforehand a couple times and he was totally willing to bend his vision to what I wanted. LOVE this place! Very woman-friendly. I have gone back and will again!
THE BEST IN HOUSTON – Even though the location and ambient is perfect, the guys don't rely on a fancy environment (as many others in this area where I live do) to offer you what you should be looking for, in case you want to get yourself tatoo-ed, which is THE BEST TATOO YOU CAN GET.
No one that takes a look at your skin (especially YOU) will interested asking if you got tattoed at the fanciest of a a place, and some of them places might not even be there while your skin will be covering you FOREVER. So... it'll only be important to see a GREAT TATOO. No more words, GO TO SHAW'S, or don't be saying I didn't tell you.
