I am giving this shop a one star because 0 was not available. I will say that this rating is because of the ethics of the proprietor, Paul Roe, and not because of the quality of the work. I have known Paul for several years and always liked him. He has done three tattoos for me and I was happy with them.

The problem arose when, two years ago, Paul put out on social media that his son needed a camera and lens for a photography class and that he would trade tattoo work for the equipment. Being an amateur photog and having several cameras, I responded and agreed to give his son my Canon EOS 7, a 28mm-300mm zoom lens and a 50mm fixed lens. I came to his shop on H Street with my daughter and met Paul and his son there to see the equipment. They took the equipment and we agreed to arrange for the tattoo work of a Bear theme on my back shoulder for some later date. I sent him examples of the type of image I was looking for and he agreed to create drawings for me.

At first he said he would do my tat publicly at a convention in Baltimore and get some image possibilities together, but that never materialized. After a few calls/emails to him, he said he had some drawings to show me, but that never materialized either. Now over the past 18 months or so I have emailed and called Paul again and again and again without any response whatsoever.

Basically, he stole my equipment and will not respond to my calls/emails.
