I went to their Frenchman shop, and was the first tattoo of the day...they hadn't opened yet but they let me in anyway. I showed my tattoo that I wanted revised, he gave me an estimate and we waited for the artist to come to work. He didn't show up within 20 minutes, so the owner DROVE me to his St. Charles shop! Talk about a full service place! I was introduced to my artist (Dave) who immediately knew what I was going for. We talked for the hours it took to do the work, and I talked to the other artists. They ROCK! I got my tongue re-pierced at the same time--I felt so comfortable! I am going to hang out at this shop every time I have a moment to spare, 'cause I love it so! Thanks Joe! Go there if you want the best! You may see me there if you take my advice!

I LOVED my tattoo here! I walked in, talked to the one artist who was working, and he brought Henryboy (my artist) up to the counter. After about 5 minutes of talking to me to get an idea of what I wanted, he fleshed out a rought draft and 15 minutes after that I was under the needle.
For over 2 hours, he worked on my forearm, all the while talking to me, and not just small talk. Henryboy was a professional about the tat, sure, but he was also engaging, which made the experience phenomenal! Now I have a beautiful celtic cross with the word "Veritas" above it and "aequitas" below as a permanent souvenier of my New Orleans 2nd honeymoon! It's the best experience I've had getting inked, and I will be returning to New Orleans, if for no other reason than to add to my collection!
The best part? $260 for a custom cross design that came out so beautifully even after a little fading from sun exposure it still looks perfect. If you're gonna get inked in the Big Easy, I'd say go to the guys. Of all the shops we checked, this was by far the most professional, cleanest and well kept studio we saw (The best I've ever been in in my whole life!) Forbidden Art...it's the only place I'd trust.

Forbidden Art has two locations now. One is on Canal & Rampart right downtown, and another is on the other side of the French Quarter in the Farbourg Marigny area on Frenchmen Street. You can walk there from Bourbon Street easily if you walk East through the residential part of Bourbon street. It is a safe walk through a pretty and historic neighborhood. I like the Frenchmen shop. It is not entirely finished decorating yet but it is a nice environment. Rain is a really awesome female artist there. She cares about you having a tattoo or piercing that you will be happy with forever. She is truly an artist.

I got a tattoo here from an artist named V about a week ago. Awesome work. I got a fleur de lis on the inside of my lower lip. I was very nervous about the tattoo, but he told me what was going to happen with it and how many times I was going to have to get it touched up and all that jazz. I'm going for my second touch up tonight. It's really hard to find a tattooist who can do a lip, so definately check this place out if you're getting something done.

I went here for my first tattoo and will go back for any others I get. I was very nervous going in, since I had checked out several before this, and found them to be very...awkward. The people didn't want to talk to you and the waiting area left something to be desired. Forbidden Art was an oasis in the midst of all that rudeness. First of all, they were open at 2 a.m.! Everyone was very friendly, from the moment we walked in. I wanted a very specific tattoo, and the artist helping me look didn't get upset about having to search for flash in the storage room or that it took me an hour to find my design. Chris did an excellent job of blending two pieces and got exactly what I had in mind down on paper. The 4 1/2 inch tatt took only 45 minutes start to finish, and Chris was very solicitous during all of it. He talked to me to keep me calm and asked if I needed a break whenever I got really jumpy. When he did the shading, it actually tickled! He has a very light touch and excellent talent.

PROS: Friendly Staff, Tons of Talent, Very good prices
CONS: NONE
