These guys at Studio City Tattoo are the most talented piercers and tattoo artists as well as the most polite people I've ever met in my life!\n\nI go in there, so nervous I'm sweating, before all my tattoos. Somehow they find a way to make me laugh and completely calm down!\n\n\n(Did I mention the entire shop is a pirate ship inside?\nWith an aquarium, painted sky sealing, and pirate attire all over, it's really amazing.)\n\nAll the guys in there are amazing artists!\nI've had three tattoos and four piercings done there, and each without one problem!\n\nI go to Steve White for my piercings and Mike Erwin for all my tattoos. I mean, everyone in there is great, but those two are the guys that have been the most friendly to me, from day 1!\n\nI would recommend these guys among anyone else.\nGreat work, friendly staff, clean environment, and not to mention, A GREAT PRICE.\n\nGood luck!

1st - SCT was the 4th place I checked on-line and by far the most intriguing web site - it really caught my attention. 2nd - all the reviews for the other places sucked. Very very negative reviews. 3rd - Ryan was so polite, professional, and helpful that I immediately knew this was the place. 4th - Slim was a sweetheart. I felt very comfortable and he was sooo on my cloud for my design. He is witty, intelligent, charming, and professional. He laughed at my jokes, which is huge to me. Finally, I love my tattoo, I wil be coming back later in the year to have a 1/2 back piece that I showed him and I can't wait. \n\nIf you even think of going anywhere else -you'll be deservedly walking the plank : )\n\nThanks Slim! Can't wait to see you again!

This is my first tatoo. I love it! I did a water color first and then Willy, who also is a watercolorist, made a stencil. Willy did an amazing job - beautiful mixing of colors. I highly endorse his work and am seriously thinking of a 2nd tattoo.\r\nand BTW, the studio itself is very clean, w/ comfortable chairs, and an interesting, cool vibe.

I have been going here since 2006-I have yet to be disappointed! I had a tattoo on my leg that I have wanted covered up for sometime now-I walked into studio city tattoo and asked the guys to come up with a tribal theme. Willy stepped up to the plate and freehanded a design that blew me away!!! he was able to cover the old tat completely and I have had soooo many wow reactions to its beauty and bad a** look!! This place is the best--relaxed vibe-great tunes-talented staff for sure!!!! keep it up studio city tattoo!!

I went into S.C.T. yesterday, and everyone was very nice and I loved the theme of the whole place. Willy did my tattoo and he helped me figure out exactly how I wanted it and he was patient with me because of course I couldn't decide. He was gentle while doing the tattoo and he answered all of my questions. My tattoo is amazing, I love it. It is everything I could have hoped it would be. This tattoo is my second, but my first big one and I will definantly go back for more! Thank you so much Willy

When I went there everyone was very professional and friendly. I got the exact tattoo I wanted without having the perfect picture. They are really talented and helped me draw out exactly what I pictured in my mind. My tattoo artist Slim was friendly and made me feel extremely comfortable. I would recommend this place to everyone, whether it's your first tattoo or your 100th. Great experience.

I have been to studio city tattoo for all 3 of my tattoos. The shop is clean and inviting. Every artist there is amazing at what they do. Everyone is super nice and down to help. Great for your 1st or 50th tattoo. Plus it doesn't hurt that they are all cute. Nice eye candy for the ladies! Love you guys!

I have had 2 tats done here. One was done over my C-section scar and was completed to perfection. Its a very sensitive and tough area to work on, but I was very satisfied with work as the sensitivity of the artist knowing the pain that is involved on a piece of this manner. My second tat is a beautiful large script writing on my back with all 5 of my babies names and my favorite saying to them. I wanted them present for the piece and was nervous at the same time...we were made to feel so welcome! We had puzzles, toys and snacks all over! My babies loved the fish tank and the whole decor of the shop. It was myself, 15 yr old, 11 yr old, 9 yr old, 3 yr old and two month old. I will never forget the experience and cant wait to go back for my next (solo) adventure! This shop is the next best place to Disneyland in my book....A++

I highly recommend SCT to anyone who wants a piercing ot tattoo. They're A+ #1 in my book.

I did my research on tattoo shops and walked into about more than 20 shops until I found Studio City Tattoo. Everyone was very welcoming and friendly. Super helpful. Price for large pieces are amazing compared to everyone. I had a good idea for my tattoo and Illya was so helpful on helping me decide on what I should get. I finally got it (still in process) and I LOVE IT! Very professional shop...I'm ready to go back and get more work done.

All the tattoos I have Illya has done. I never cared for flash... so all the work he has done has been a collaboration of my ideas and his artistry... custom fitted to accentuate the lines of my small body size. I have a neck piece that is a combination of French deco art and tribal... I have had people of all ages... including those who are not even necessarily pro-tattoo, compliment the designs that Illya has lent his skill and artistry to. \n\nI am probably one of his older clients... my first work done nearly twenty years ago. I'm pushing 60... but the ink is still solid and dark, the lines clean and clear, despite my passion for exposing my skin to the Arizona sun. \n\nI cannot speak highly enough about Illya... and his peers that he works side by side with. Go with confidence to Studio City Tattoo... and have your body decorated with work that will carry you through the many seasons of your life!!!\n\n

I had my first tattoo done here in 2007, and I've been back twice now in 3 years for more. The artists are all a great deal of fun, the parlour is immaculately clean, and the pirate decor has got to be seen to be believed. Illya has done two of my tattoos and the wolf face he just created for me is magnificent. I feel very safe having my work done with these talented fellas, and I'll be going again for another in the not too distant future. They've expanded into clothing and the T-shirts are designed by the artists; this is the place to go for quality!

I am a late bloomer to the tattoo world, but I'm glad I did. It is good to research what you want your tattoo to be; don't jump into anything - it will be with you forever. I got what I wanted and loved it. Slim was the artist who walked me through the stages from beginning to end. I got an extensive tattoo from the top of my shoulder to below my elbow. He was detailed about every aspect over the 8 weeks that was needed for outline, healing time, and finishing touches (finishing touches were on the house). I was comfortable throughout the process and enjoyed the bantering between the artists and the customers; it was a great show! One word of advice I would like to give... Show the artists your idea of what you want and talk about how you may want it to look but let him do his work. Don't micro-manage his talents. I discovered the more I stayed out of it and trusted the process the more my tattoo came to be more than I expected. I love the tattoo I relieved and will definitely be returning for another.\nThanks Slim and for all the other artists who made my first experience with tattooing great!

I got my first body piercing here at Studio City Tattoos recently. I walked in the door with my mother and I was almost immediately greeted by the man on the counter. He quickly introduced me to Nick, the piercer, who I have to honestly say, was really cute! \n\nNick and the man at the counter were both very friendly and helpful and I was ready to get pierced in only about five minutes. Before the actual piercing began, he told me that I should get a stud instead of the hoop/ring I had originally wanted because it was ""easier to take care of"", but as I had found out earlier, studs are NOT easier to care for and are actually not very recommended because a hoop is easier to clean and manage. Getting a stud in place of the hoop I wanted cost an extra TEN dollars, which might not seem too much, but I was paying extra for something I didn't really want in the first place. This ""potentially"" false information that I received led me to believe that Nick may have told me to get a stud because the shop would have made more money from it..and for that, I take away a star. I would have taken away two because I think that WAS a pretty big mess-up that he might have done there, but I guess I'll just have to live and learn and possibly have to beat his butt later ( joking of course, I'll just ask him about it at a later date :) ). \n\nWhat really saves this shop from going down to three stars is the friendly atmosphere there. I didn't feel thattt uncomfortable there at all, and although I was a bit nervous I still got my piercing (almost) pain free. Nick was informative about the piercing after care and gave me a sheet of paper to take home with me with instructions on how to care for it. He also wrote down his e-mail and told me to e-mail him if I have any questions or concerns.\n\nOverall, Studio City Tattoo is a beautiful and professional shop with a friendly and laid-back atmosphere and a very professional vibe still coming off from there. Nick still hasn't gained my complete trust yet and I'm a bit weary about coming back in case I get another in fear I may get gipped again, but Studio City Tattoo is still a gem if you're looking to get pierced or tattooed.

Ive had my first tattoo here and decided to go back for a late night decision of getting my septum pierced. I walked in and they said ok, went through the options, chose my ring and was ready to go.\n\n I gotta tell you though, NICK was such an awesome dude. He was a pro. and you can tell, it took as little as 1 minute to get the job done. he was quick to find the sweet spot and it cut through like butter, almost as if he was making love to your nose.\n\n I highly recommend this dude. The staff seemed cranky, as always, but when it comes down to business they get down and put it down!

I had my first tattoo done by Ilya. He is a man of few words and absolutely top-notch work. He tattooed a rosary around my ankle, incorporating my husband's Celtic cross, which is quite complicated, due to the knotwork. It is simply exquisite! I get lots of compliments on it. Ilya takes into consideration how the tattoo looks on you personally, and is serious about his artwork. \n\nI highly recommend Studio City Tattoo, and Ilya in particular!

After years of wanting one I finally decided to get my first tattoo. I went online and did my research and after reading the reviews there was no question, this was the place for me. Now that I've been through the process I can tell you all the great reviews are right on the money. This place was super clean and lots of fun. I had an appointment with Slim and even though I was really nervous he made it a great experience for me. He was casual and funny and put me right at ease. He talked me through the pros and cons of my tattoo design, size, placement, etc. He didn't mind my friend taking pictures or hovering over his shoulder to watch him work. He made me laugh and got me through the process, and best of all he did an awesome job on my tattoo. I would absolutely recommend Studio City Tattoo and if I ever get another one I'll definitely be going there again. Thanks Slim!!

Got my first tattoo in 12 years. Skylar hooked me up last Thursday. It was a simple tribal zodiac tattoo on my calf, but he did amazing work. My wife and I were there for a few hours, and we spoke with the all the employees. Everyone was really cool, and it was just fun to hang out while waiting. Steve pierced my ears while I was waiting, and it was quick and painless. The whole place is kept clean and spotless, which was encouraging. If you want another tattoo or piercing, this is the place to go. I definitely will be returning to Skylar in the future!

SLIM did an amazing job covering up my I-got-them-when-I-was-young-and-stupid tattoos, the time on the chair was well worth it, those silly tattoos were a bygone era. With a steady hand and hours of entertainment, he made my visit a definitely memorable one. The work that he does is impeccable, and I am definitely appreciative of the creative work on his part that went in to creating the perfect ""cover-up job"" :)

Never considered a tattoo in my life until I hit 40. Had an artist create a design and then went on the search for a place that had a good reputation. I WAS NERVOUS AS HELL. So many good reviews pointed us to Studio City Tattoo. We drove 4 1/2 hours to LA just for the tattoo event. Dana helped me through my extreme needle phobia. In the same visit, the love of my life also had her 40th birthday celebration tattoo custom designed and applied to her lower back. We are thrilled and I have no doubt that Studio City Tattoo will be doing all our future tattoos. Thanks team for your professionalism... particularly Dana.

Got my tattoo done by Captain Dave! He is nothing short of a true artist and is also very meticulous. He guarantees his work, if you need a touch up, like I did a few months after, he will touch up your tat at no extra charge! \r\n\r\nWhether it be Captain Dave or any of the other tattoo artists, this is THE place to get a tat done in L.A. Beguiling pirate atmosphere! . Not intimidating in the least, I have seen people from ALL walks of life in the studio. A must for tattoo virgins!!

I have never once been disappointed with any of the work done at Studio City Tattoo. The artists and piercers are AMAZING and always make you feel comfortable. I won't go anywhere else in California and I will always recommend anyone to go to the shop for tattoos or piercings! They are THE best.

Got my first major tattoo a few months ago at Studio City Tattoo. The staff is highly professional, the pirate ambience is unique and comfortable, and best of all, there's Illya, the brilliant artist who brought my design to life - his work is absolutely exquisite! Highly recommended.

Got my first ink at 44 from Todd Townsend and became addicted...........to the ink not Todd, but he is a sexy beast with gentle hands. I am working on a full upper body Tribal, still have to do my back and my ribs.\n\nI have spent 26 hours in the shop, always have a great time.\n\nAlways like watching whole families come in for ink or piercing and see daughters telling their moms not to get that belly button piercing! \n\nGot my nips pierced by Nick. After I stopped screaming I realized it did not hurt at all and I had a really cool new place to keep my keys!\n\nCan't wait to gauge up! \n\nGee what can I pierce next?

I've already been to this tattoo shop twice and I love it. They'll consult with you before hand and tell you what will work and your body and what won't. My artist was Skylar. I'm pretty girly but the guys didn't make me feel awkward in the shop at all. My tattoo took about 2 hours but Skylar kept talking to me and making sure that I was comfortable. I love both my tattoos and I'm going back when I get a new one.

This was the perfect place for my first tattoo. I had a specific idea on how I wanted my tattoo and $lim was able to put it onto paper just how I imagined it! He even helped work it around so it would fit on my tiny wrist. \n\nTheir shop is really clean and organized and the energy is really nice. I've already recommended it to people :)

I caught Captain Dave before he moved. YES!!!!!!\r\nEveryone at the shop was cool, very helpful. I couldn't be happier! I got my pirate tat at my pirate tat shop! \r\nFor my 4th tat (and on the side....whew!) Dave made the experience as comfortable as possible. It's a clean place with amazing artists. I'd recommend them to anyone.
