River Rat is by far the best shop around, Great friendly service, Clean and professional work. They treat you as family, not just as a client. I would recommend River Rat to anybody around. I have personally gotten a piercing and a tattoo from them, and definately plan to go back for more. <3

I had a tattoo done last night at River rat Tattoos and I am not one of those people that gets them and was rather worried about the pain. They handled me with kid gloves, took the time to find out what i wanted, helped me design it. Very professional and clean. I truly enjoyed my experience with them and would recommend anyone to go to them for their body art.

so, before coming to river rat tattoos, i went to another tattoo shop. the other one said they were gonna charge me $160 for that tattoo i wanted. i knew that was too much, so i left the store. that's when my friend told me about river rat tattoos. i went in, and they priced my tattoo for $85! and because they were having a sale, they only made me pay $68. what an amazing price! tracy did a remarkable job on my tattoo. it was on my rib cage, so it was a very, very rough spot for my first tattoo. tracy let me take breaks in-between, and helped me get through this painful experience(yes, i am a wimp!)as easily as possible! they truly care about each and every one of their clients, and i highly recommend this place for any and every tattoo and piercing you could ever want! i will definitely be back!

Thanks Jessica for piercing my nose! I couldn't get over how quick and relatively painless it was :) I called around to local shops and got a few prices and River Rat Tattoos had one of the best deals. So I stopped in and was in and out in about 15 mins. Very clean!!! Very nice piercer and artists (the owner i believe). If I ever get up the nerve to get something a little more permanent I will definitely be going to River Rat Tattoos!! Thanks again guys!

Man, this is the first tattoo shop that I have been in that I feel at ease. Tracy and Jess were both very eager to help me get the desired product!! This was far from my first tattoo, but they were the first artists to treat me like a person not just a canvas. Thanks guys and I will most definitely be back!

I have been wanting a second tattoo for years and my husband noticed a new shop that had opened. We decided to check it out one Saturday night. We walked in around 7pm and I showed Tracy my images. He quickly made some tweaks for me and we were ready to go. It turned out amazing! The place is so clean and very professional. I had some questions after I got home and Tracy answered my FB messages very quick.
Since it was a last minute idea we had to take our daughter with us. They immediatly put on cartoons for her, gave her water and candy and she was set. I have to say we had the best time while we were there and I was at ease and comfortable, well as comfortable as you can be face down for 3 hours :-).
We have told all our friends about River Rat Tattoos and will for sure be back again. Thanks so much!

Tracy is one of the most talented artist I know! I've known him for years and know how talented he is! He is awesome! You give him an idea and you end up with a masterpiece! His studio is clean and bright. You can trust his art and especially his tools! And he is the sweetest person you could ever get stuck by! :) YOU DA MAN! TRACY! Can't wait to see more of your excellent work!

Met Tracy one night out on the town through a old friend of mine Jess who happens to work with him, i told them i wanted to get a peacock feather on my side and always have within a week we had it drawn out and done. up my whole left side looks amazing and very colorful gave Tracy creative control on the color pallet and he rocked it with the orange and green,Couldnt be happier. I love showing it off my fav. piece by far. If you want to get a GREAT tattoo then this is the place to go, its clean, friendly and affordable. Hey they even offer tattoo removal and piercing. It took 3hrs to do my tat but went by fast and made a good friend in the process. btw Jess is freakin funny and them 2 together is a great combination! if you go somewhere else you are truly missing out, but hey they can remove the crappy tattoo you got somewhere else or even cover it up for ya!

River Rat Tattoo is the best Tattoo shop I have been in, and I have been in a lot! Tracy has spent many hours drawing me custom tattoos to make sure it is exactly what I want! He uses all clean, new and sterile equipment. He has a love for what he does and it shows in his work and in his attitude! He is a doll to be around! I do not intend on using any one else to finish the pieces that I want done.

This place ROCKS!! I've never seen such a bright and clean tattoo shop. Very friendly and patient staff. They spent as much time as needed to work with my ideas and come up with a design even better than what i had in mind. I will definitely be going back soon, and recommending River Rat Tattoos to everyone.

This is a great Shop! Super clean, Staff is friendly and accomodating. If you have a clear cut design they can handle it but their artistry and superior craftsmanship are at your disposal if you need help figuring out the perfect tattoo - check out their work!

I was referred to Tracy about a year ago when I needed some correction work done on a botched tattoo. We discussed my options. After much discussion and making suggestions we came up with a plan. He drew several designs himself and I choose one, so to work he went. I'm a bit of a wuss so he allowed several breaks...very patient man that Tracy. The end result is fantastic.
I went back a couple of weeks ago for more ink. I knew what I wanted, sort of, so I looked through many books for ideas. I found 2 designs but wanted different aspects from each one. He said " no problem". Back to work he went.
I'm blown away by his talent. It was EXACTLY what I wanted.
The colors are so vivid, and the lines so clean. A friend said it looks like it's in 3D. What a compliment.
Colleen is also a great artist as I go to see some of her work.
The atmosphere is clean and welcoming.
I never thought I'd ever get a second tattoo, now I'm thinking about a third.

River Rat Tattoos has the best quality and artistic staff in the area for tattoos! The shop is super clean, they do piercing and tattoo removal also.

Their staff are truly artists at their craft take. I wouldn't get a tattoo anywhere but River Rat Tattoos in New Braunfels - and I don't even live there!

The shop is clean and pleasant. The first time I walked in the shop I felt like I have known the owner and crew for years! They were very friendly, yet very professional.

The tattoo was exactly what I imagined and as they say.. a picture (or tattoo) is worth a thousand words.

I truly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for some ink.

I had a great experience at River Rat Tattoos. I discussed with the artist what I wanted, and he created a great design for my tattoo. He listened to my ideas and we worked together to get it exactly right. I have a few more sessions to go on my tattoo (it is rather large), but I know the final tat will look great. I have already had great compliments on just the outline! Though I have multiple tattoos, I am not one of those people who says,"it doesn't hurt". Those people lie. At River Rat, they have this great numbing cream that made the experience much better. Oh---the place is also super clean...
