Just got my first tattoo from Blaze, she is amazing. I hardly felt a thing and she knew what I wanted just from a little bit of text messaging back and forth. When I arrived Lari at the front desk was extremely helpful for me to pick out the size tattoo I wanted. I was so nervous about the pain (because I am a wimp, LOL) but when I arrived Lari and Blaze made me feel so comfortable the experience was even relaxing! I would recommend Blaze to anyone. I will refer anyone who mentions getting a tattoo to her and her beautiful and clean gallery. Thanks Blaze, love my new tattoo!!
This is hands down THE only place for a tattoo or piercing. i got my first tattoo done here by Blaze. she sat down with me, really getting to know what i was looking for, went over dozens of pictures with me, picked out size and placement. the tattooing process itself was great! i was completely comfortable for the 2 1/2 hours, and there were no weird awkward moments. i also have gotten two piercings from Lari, my industrial and navel. both appointments were great, he gave me great after care advice, made everything very clear on what not to do, and answered every one of my 10 questions. i plan on going back very soon, for more ink and defiantly more piercings! if you want a tattoo out of some book that a handful of other people have this store isn't for you. if you want a personalized experience, look no further!!
Thank you so much! We really enjoy making each tattoo personal and unique, and are so happy that you feel at home with us. Looking forward to your next tattoo and piercing!
Blaze has done all three of my tattoos, and I love each one of them! She has also done work on my husband. We are both considering more 'ink' and wouldn't dream of going anywhere else.
The art gallery is amazing, and I'm honored to have had some of my photography on exhibit there. This dual-purposed art center is a destination - be sure to visit them soon!
Having the art shows is such a pleasure, and we appreciate having artists like yourself display your work and enjoy the many shows we have each year. Looking forward to some more ink time with you and your husband! Thank you for the wonderful review!
I've had ALL my 30 tattoos done at – I've had ALL my 30+ tattoos done at Spirit Gallery. They are the ONLY artists whom I trust to do my artwork. Blaze and the crew are friendly, professional, and they definitely go the extra mile to ensure that each client is satisfied with their end result.
Thank you very much! It is our pleasure to make sure our clients are enjoying themselves and getting great work. Can't wait to create some more art for you!
Spirit Gallery is such a wonderful asset to the community. Not only are they a tattoo studio but they are also an art gallery constantly holding events from gallery openings, to group yoga, to the drunken palette, to having wolves come to visit....everything.
This studio provides something for everyone to enjoy and they do great work.
I've had two tattoos done by them. Under both situations, my skin rejected the ink (this is due to my own sensitivity/allergies that I was unaware of at the time- not their practices) the owner herself was kind enough to book complementary sessions to re-do them.
The customer service is phenomenal, the entire staff is very personable. Unlike other studios I've been to where you walk in and feel like an outsider, here they make you feel like you're in the right place, like they've known you forever.
They are very sanitary, clean, and safe. Their pricing is very reasonable. They are very patient and talented at working with you to help design your own custom piece. They even have sales and promotions such as "fun/stupid tattoo day" or a theme day, such as "food day" where for $40 or $50 they will tattoo whatever you want pertaining to the theme for a designated amount of minutes and size.
This place is so much fun and I can't even brush the surface on all the good qualities that this business possesses. I highly recommend them!
It makes me so happy when I see and hear people coming to all our events and having a great time with us. Stupid Tattoo Day was the first theme day, and I think it's becoming an annual staple in the community! (April Fool's Day rocks!) Thank you for your kind words, and we love working with you, too!
The Spirit Gallery Tattoo studio is clean, friendly and fun. Each of the staff bares a unique and pleasant personality but it's the compassion they share for the art which really outshines any other tattoo shop I've visited. To be honest, I think they are more excited about the tattoos than the people getting them! Aside form that they provide professional piercing, hold art classes, (some of them whilst drinking), and continuously display different forms of art from local residents which I personally enjoy to view. Spirit Gallery is without a doubt the finest parlor I've been a witness to and they will surely be the only one I choose for all my future ink.
Thank you Eric! Yeah, it's true, sometimes we get pretty amped up about the tattoos. . . *grin* While Drunken Palette has moved on to their own location now down the street, we are definitely going to have more art classes this coming year. We'll keep you posted on facebook and our website. Thanks for choosing us!
I've gotten 3 tattoos at Spirit Gallery. Wonderful people there, always willing to work on the designs with you and understanding to those of us who hate needles! Blaze is amazing, and even if you don't want a tattoo or piercing, there is always something going on there, from art shows to drunken palett painting classes and various workshops (drawing, feng shui, etc.)...always something unique to offer! So weather you're looking to get a tattoo or piercing, or you want to learn something new or support the local art scene, Spirit Gallery is definitely worth a visit.
Thank you so much! We're glad to bring you great art to enjoy and tattoos to wear. Can't wait to work on your fourth tattoo!
I was referred to Blaze at Spirit Gallery Tattoo by a friend of mine who is a client of theirs. I had a pretty good idea of the design I wanted, but the actual art I had was small and low quality. I gave this to Blaze and showed her where I wanted the piece on my upper arm...and then I gave her free reign to take this art and my intention behind having this piece done...to create a beautiful and colorful tattoo. When she sent me the sketch I was blown away...I was so excited! She knew that I wasn't thrilled about certain aspects of the original art and she went with her intuition and modified it into exactly what I was envisioning.
The day of my initial appointment, Blaze was all ready for me when I arrived. Their business-side of the studio/gallery was efficient and organized. I had my paperwork completed in no time and was in the chair ready for my art.
Although this wasn't my first tattoo, I was still nervous because this was a much larger piece with a tremendous amount of detail to be done. Blaze did a great job of chatting with me to keep my mind off of the process during the 3 hours that I was there. She is easy going, grounded, professional and just has a wonderful and caring nature about her that puts you at ease immediately.
I highly recommend Blaze and her tattoo studio and gallery. The concept is really great, it is nice to see new art on the walls when I go in, and I understand that they offer art classes as well. Spirit Gallery is easy to find and has ample parking in the nearby area.
Aw, thanks so much, Dana! It is my pleasure to work with you, and I'm so glad that we made your experience a good one. :)
This place is a great tattoo shop as well as a cool gallery. They have different artists with unique styles so you can get what you want from someone with similar enthusiasm. My experience with Blaze is wonderful and I won't go to anyone else for my tattoos.
Spirit Gallery Tattoo is the place to go for a well thought-out, well done tattoo by great artists!
Thanks, Brandon! I love working with you, and can't wait to do another tattoo with you soon!
