Seattle >Slave to the Needle
A group of girlfriends and I came in last weekend to get matching tattoos in tribute to our upcoming college graduation. We had such a blast-the team here was so friendly, the shop was clean and fun, and EVERY one of us 6 girls loved our tattoos. Thank you for a very memorable experience!
A perfect tattoo parlor. Everyone working at this shop are real professionals and extremely friendly. I have never received any sort of attitude while spending time in this shop. There is a reason this business wins awards so often.
highly recommended. I shopped around for a tattoo in the area and settled on Slave to the Needle in Seattle because a close workmate had nothing but glowing reviews for them. They were very respecting of my tattoo desires and treated my slightly clich
I trust them with my skin. I decided to be the ?world?s best dad? and do the generic (but still pretty sweet) thing of getting my daughter?s name tattooed on my body . I?m not a tough guy or a liar so I will admit that it hurt, but it was nice to be at a place like Slave to the Needle. Everyone gave me a good natured ribbing that really took my mind off the fact that needles were puncturing my skin...repeatedly. This was my first tattoo, so it was really a special experience for me, and I appreciate Aaron and company being so amazingly cool about it.
Husband's first tattoo experience. My husband did the adorably wonderful act last month of getting my and our kids
First Tattoo in years. I got my last tattoo years ago when I was in the military and I had been on the fence whether I’d ever get another one. One of my friends had gotten a really impressive sleeve done by Aaron Bell and it encouraged me to get a new one. I’m really pleased with the work on the tattoo and am now kicking around the possibility of getting yet another one!
Great Work and service!. Slave to the Needle obliged my silly cliched tattoo idea to get my children's names tattooed on my body. Even though it's a common tattoo that parents have been getting for a million years, Aaron and his staff treated me as if I was getting the most original, important tattoo on Earth...which to me, it is. I really appreciate that more than I could ever say or type. Thank you guys.
Honest Jon has been working on my sleeve for a few months now. His work is AMAZING! Since I've been in the shop quite a bit, I've got to see some of the other artists' work. Oh my, John Fitz is a great artist and Van is AWESOME!! Van's japanese art is just BEAUTIFUL! I'm back and forth about staying with HJ or going to Van to work on my other sleeve... they are both so good at what they do!
Anyway, Slave is the ONLY place I'll get inked. I've gotten ink at other places (which will be covered up at Slave) and Slave just pwns! Check it out for yourself
Be patient and wait for Aaron Bell & don't settle for 2nds.
I was inked by John Fitzgerald and I don't know if it was time constraints and/or just an artist past his prime, but I received a piss poor tattoo on my forearm. I researched the artists work and thought he had talent so who knows what happened that day? The dragon shading looked rushed and resembled a dead fish with virtually zero detail? The shading was sparse in too many areas like my skin couldn't take ink there?? My daughters name had a letter off-centered and each individual letter's detail can be questioned whether or not the artist has the shakes.
My answer to the whole problem was to simply climb the tattoo artist food chain and get this fixed the right way. I found a genius tattoo artist up here in Arlington that just covered up this sub-par effort with wicked and crazy detail....even over the sparse shading that looked rushed!! so all is good now.
Do your research and make sure the tattoo artist has plenty of time to do it RIGHT and stay away from places that are run like an overworked assembly line.
SO Worth It.....
I already had a few tattoos from other shops but was skeptical and patient in waiting to find the right shop to do a very creative and special sleeve. I had yet to see any work at any shop that showed they could capture what I was looking for. I was referred to Slave to the Needle.
Still skeptical, I checked out their work and was intrigued by Andrea's portfolio. After an initial consultation with her, a second appointment to check out the drawing, and finally getting the tattoo...it was PERFECT! I waited months to get in and spent a large chunk of money on this tattoo but it was well worth every cent I spent and every day I waited.
Since then I've gotten a handful of piercings and a few more tattoos by multiple artists at Slave to the Needle. This is absolutely the ONLY shop I trust to do my work! The staff is beyond friendly, the artistry is top-notch, the prices are reasonable....what more could you ask for???
