Great Tattoos and Creativity!!!
I've seen a lot of poor reviews here which really surprised me. Been having a lot of work done by Curtis on both sleeves and couldn't be happier.
Everyone seems friendly enough to me. OK I get it people get frustrated if they have to wait a bit but goes with the territory as long as the works good I can wait a few minutes. Love the atmosphere and I watch other Artist work while I'm being done and I've seen some amazing pieces turned out. I bring the concept and my Artist makes it mine which is the way it should be. If your Artist is good you'll see that in designs he comes up with. Anyway recommend this place and I'm very happy with all of my peices. Fine Lines Sharp Points and not overworked.

Of the 40+ tat's II have, the only ones I don't like are the 2 I got done at this shop. Shitty attitudes and unprofessional environment. Most expensive shop I've ever been to, not worth the money.

And the icing on the cake was the $50 sunglasses that were stolen while I was getting mt back done. Very classy.

Amazing artist,...have to say I was a bit nervous....he drew what I wanted on my back while I was explaining what I wanted. ....extremely happy with his artwork

great place
Got some ink done by Curtis. Went in told them what I wanted. Guy at the counter showed me different version's and edited it to what I wanted. Prices are pretty standard. It was a friendly environment. Going back in 3 weeks for tattoo 9#

Tamara was great!
I was super nervous and Tamara made me feel comfortable and relaxed. She was super fast and very efficient. It looks awesome and I'm very happy with it. Looking to get a tattoo go see Tamara.

Bad service
I went in to meet an artist, and I felt extremely rushed and I felt like i was an inconvenience. It seemed like asking questions was a waste of time to them. I was definetly not expecting to feel as uncomfortable as I was. I said it was my first tattoo and the way they responded made it seem like i was just asking a brick wall a question. They did not help very much. They did not give off a friendly vibe that I would want to sit to get a tattoo. Was not happy with customer service.

unprofessional workers and ridiculous prices
i cannot express how much i hate sink n ink. I got my cartilage done there and the people working were nothing but rude. They didn't give me any cleaning advice or after care procedures and barley talked to me when i was in there. i felt like they didn't want me in there lol. I wanted to get my ear lobes pierces swell and they told me it would cost from $120-$160 for my second and third holes, which is fucking ridiculous. If you're looking to get a tattoo or piercing don't give your time or money to sink n ink, you will regret it.

Bad service, Bad tattoo
A year ago I was tattooed and got a small eagle, It was all black and healed looking washy. I went back for a retouch and it looks terrible, just bad overall. Not only that, but i had gone in today to get my second navel piercing, of which i mentioned. Without questions i was told to wait for half an hour. Finally i was brought to the back and upon lifting up my shirt the blonde woman stated " Oh well that changes everything why didn't you say that." I had in fact said that but apparently that didn't matter. I had finally said, "I wish i was told that sooner this was a waste of time." I went to leave and grabbed my things. It didn't end there, while i was walking i heard her talking about how it was my fault etc etc. As i opened the door to leave I heard her bad mouthing me. So NO i would never go here again..

First Tattoo
I was a little nervous about going to Sinkin Ink because of all of the mixed reviews about how "rude" or "unprofessional" they were but I had a friend who got her tattoo done by them so I went for it. When I first went in to book an appointment and explain what I wanted they were fantastic and such nice people and then when I went back to get the tattoo they were again very wonderful and understanding and Adam did a fantastic job with the tattoo that it was so worth the 2 hours! He was very clear in his instructions about aftercare and he was very nice and always let you know what he'd be doing before going for it just in case you had any questions. I recommend anyone to head to Sinkin Ink for a good experience and great tattoo!

My tattoo was ruined by Justin
A week ago I went into sinkin ink to get my japanese cherry blossom tree tattoo coloured in. There were just a few flowers and I was very specific when I asked for them to be pink and red. There was no discussion about any other add ons or colours but Justin the tattoo artist decided he wanted to put hundreds of LIME GREEN leaves all over my tattoo. The funny thing is.. cherry blossom trees DONT HAVE LEAVES. As if that wasn't upsetting enough he also put bright yellow dots in the middle of the flowers which was also never discussed or wanted by me. I absolutely HATE this tattoo now and have to pay more money to fix his mistakes then I originally did for the shit job he did. Sinkin sucks and I don't recommend it.

Theze peoplez got skillz
Ive had a number of tattoos done by Tamara and Curtis. Great job on all of them! One needed a minor touchup - and was taken care of promply and was done fantastically. The rest of the group have pulled off some beauties while I was there also. All my tats will be done here! Dont think you can go wrong with any of the artists here!

Hummingbird tattoo
I went to Sinkin Ink to have a hummingbird tattoo done. Not only did they convince me to use different colours than I originally wanted, the tattoo itself is mediocre at best. The shading is off and defiantely needs touched up, and I also had a reaction to the coloured ink that they used. I got my tattoo over a year ago, and my tattoo is STILL causing me grief. It gets very itchy and red.
The lines are sloppy and I paid good money for a below-par tattoo. Not something you want to do when it will be staying on your body forever. Regret going here.

Amazing Work!
I went to Sinkin Ink for my first tattoo last year. They were amazing! Very helpful and informative. The quality of the work was excellent and I received good advice on healing. I've since added 8 more tattoos...all done by Adam, one of their artists. I receive compliments on my tats wherever I go, including from other tattoo artists. I can't speak highly enough of this place and I will certainly go back.

cover up by jeff
I recently had a large cover-up done by jeff at sinkin ink. it was a large tribal black blob of in which was 3x5 inches on my left upper arm. i did not think that any thing at all could be done with this disaster. i went to see jeff and explained my situation. I gave him a theme i liked and let him do the rest. I cannot say enough about his skills and artistry. He was not only a pleasure to sit with for 4 hours but the result is amazing..i am now proud to say i have an "AMAZING" dragon in place of that back blob and cannot recommend him enough.

Thanks again jeff

Insane skill. Doesn't even look like a cover up at all!

Worst tattoo ever
I got my fourth tattoo done here by Curtis. It was simple lettering . Not only was it the most expensive of my four tattoos, but it is the worst !!!!! The whole thing needs to be touched up/ redone. I am not satisfied with this tart at all and regret going here.
