I had such a great experience this month; I have to share it with you!
I’ve been thinking about getting a new tattoo for awhile now, but finding the right place, let alone the right person can be challenging. I find that it’s similar to finding the right hairdresser; you simply have to “click” with that person. You have to trust that your vision is in the hands of the right professional.
I had gotten a tattoo when I was nineteen, and basically hated it ever since, so I’ve been thinking about covering it up for a long time. I knew that the next tattoo had to be a bit bigger, and far better than the old one, and done by an artist I completely trusted.
Cover up tattoos can be tricky, so I wanted to find the right artist for the job. Several years ago, when I was working at a salon on State Street, I worked with someone who told me that Jeff Zuck from Name Brand Tattoo was the man for the job.
I‘ve known about Name Brand Tattoo for several years now, but I postponed going for a few reasons. First, I had to be certain of what I wanted, so I put some thought into it and let some time pass to know whether or not I’d make the right decision. Secondly, tattoos cost money, so I needed time to put a bit of cash aside for it. Third, it’s important to look at the artists’ work to make sure you like it and are inspired by it.
This month, all three came together perfectly. I finally had everything ready to contact Jeff about my cover up. I sent him an email and we chatted back and forth about my ideas, photos I’d sent him (Pinterest), etc. After a couple weeks, he said he’d do it and for me to make an appointment for a consultation at the shop.
I just have to say that from the consultation to the completion of my tattoo, everything was excellent as far as customer service is concerned. The shop is incredibly clean and inviting, with a staff of friendly people that are ready to work hard to make sure you have a great experience, which I did, of course. I can’t say enough positive things about Name Brand Tattoo; great artists, awesome shop vibe, wonderful people all around. I will definitely go back!
