REVIEWS of Tattoo by James in Tacoma, Washington

Lenarose ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

So I've recently went to a tattoo parlor, to get an outline of my dragon. Just to say I didn't want to go back, and would never go back to them. After doing my research and reading reviews, I've found James. James is an excellent artist, he is very kind, very sweet and gets the job done right. He got in touch with me very fast, and is great at communicating with me, also squeezed me into his busy schedule. He also helped me with touching up and finish the scales on my dragon tattoo that I've gotten elsewhere. he took the time to even make sure the scales was how i wanted and to even look over the mistakes the other artist made & how to fix it. I really appreciate it, and will definitely go back whenever I want another tattoo. 10/10 recommend and I will definitely recommend to any friends or family that wants tattoos.

What to say? There is no better than James. I drove 50 miles to Tacoma to get my skin motion tattoo done. This guy is the best tattoo artist I've ever worked with. He's professsional, kind and also incredibly detailed. You simply won't find another tattoo artist like him. He is the guy i will go to from here on out for my tattoos. You won't be disappointed. If want it done right, go to James...
