Hey guys,

I just recently got a few tattoos and love them!! I am lucky that I found local place that I like very much to get any work done. I am 24 years old and only have had piercings (industrial, eyebrow and left lobe) my parents were not fans of those so I can't imagine what they'd say or how they would react to the tattoos (I can but unsure of what it would actually be like lol) Yah I haven't told them at all but they are visiting in February from CT so they will see in person

Welcome to LST, where did you get your work done?

Welcome! I like your cobra/ankh tattoo.

I was just visiting the Phoenix area last month, though I didn't get to see a whole lot because I was only in town for a few days and had a wedding to attend. (Of course I got tattooed though. I went to Immaculate Tattoo in Mesa - found it as a result of LST!)

For the snake/ankh tattoo, it was 120/hr and took about 3.25 hours so I paid 390 for it

Do you think that makes sense? I do and I am OK and proud of it, she did an amazing job

Some of my friends say I was crazy and other people I tell say the same

A place in Old Town Scottsdale called Old Town Ink

I have a cousin that had some work done there. Her work done by Christine....

In the Phoenix Area you HAVE to go to Immaculate Tattoo in Mesa. Aaron Coleman is a master and he will not disappoint.

Well a guy named Aaron "Bubba" Irwin, who is part owner of the shop did the Scorpion and Christine did the Snake/Ankh

They are all very awesome, there are 3 others there. I really felt comfortable with them and they are funny and talk to you during the process. They build good relationships with their customers. I am one who once I find someone I like I usually don't ever stray away. I do this with my hair, Drs, etc

While we generally don't like to talk specific numbers/prices around here, I would say it makes sense. Most people have no idea what a quality tattoo costs. It is going to be on you for the rest of your life - going cheap makes no sense at all.

Hmm well when I think of more, I'll have to check out Aaron out in Mesa sometime, bet he is super busy though

He was running a 3 month wait when I went to him.

Dang yah the people I go to usually have to plan a good full month ahead. It will give me time to think and save $$ though :p

Thanks for the info guys and the intro here. I am glad I found this forum. I feel like almost everyone has tattoos but only a handful of people really CARE and cherish their art and who actually know what they are talking about. Good to know those people are here
