I went in this past Sunday to get a tattoo in memory of my father who died last year. It's a very simple tattoo... the word "forgiveness" in my father's handwriting.

I was very nervous, not only about getting tattooed (it was only my second time after getting tattoo on each wrist about 2 years ago) but I was very worried about execution. Since it was handwriting it needed to be exact and I felt there was no room for error.

As soon as we walked in we were greeted by Jereme who I had my appointment with. I gave him the copy of my design and he was incredibly helpful with advice about sizing and placement. I immediately felt at ease because of his friendly and helpful attitude. After he took some time to set up he had me come back. During my previous tattoo experience at Genuine Tattoo, I was told no one was allowed to sit with me during which disappointed me. My experience at Skinquake was much different. Jereme allowed my friend to sit with me and hold my hand the entire time. This being a memorial tattoo, sharing the experience with a close friend was very important to me.

The tattoo didn't take long. Maybe 15 minutes. During that time Jereme stopped frequently to make sure I was comfortable. He asked me questions and discussed the meaning behind the tattoo and about future work I might want to have done. We even talked a bit about parenting. He seems to be such a nice, friendly and genuine person.

Once the tattoo was done, to say I was ecstatic was an understatement. It looked exactly as if my father had written right on my arm. Seeing it there is a kind of closure that I never could have expected. I felt so relaxed and comfortable. It was such a meaningful and emotional experience for me.

I will come back to Skinquake and Jereme for all my future work. If my future visits go even half as wonderfully as this one did I will be incredibly happy. Thank you very much for the awesome work. Best $70 I have spent.

Cleanest shop in the city. These guys know what they are doing. Of course it smells clean Kristie B.
I can't believe someone would complain about a place smelling too clean. Anyways, great art work, great people, great prices. If you think you are paying too much just remember this is a lifelong piece of art. All of my tattoos are from Skinquake I would never think about going anywhere else.

It smelled like cleaning supplies! The instant you walk in ALL that you can smell is the overwhelming scent of cleanliness. I'm slightly allergic to things that are chemical-y, so I really can't believe that they would make it smell so clean.

I had a piercing done there a few months ago, and it was practically painless and has never been any trouble at all. Usually I have a hard time healing my piercings, but my piercing from Skinquake has never been more than a little sore. I plan on going back to Skinquake in a couple of days to get another piercing since I have already had such good luck there! The workers were also very professional and friendly and everything is very clean. I would definetly recommend it!

I went there for my first tattoo, the people there are friendly, and they do great work. the tattoo artists are extremely talented, and will do custom tattoos for you that will most likely be amazed with. One of the best features I've seen there is a tattoo artists ability to do life like pictures on your body including photos of you kids. I've only had work done by one tattoo artist there, and I think he's awesome, and a pretty cool guy his name is Matt and you can find some of his work at MATRIXTATTOO.com

Went to Skinquake for the first time for my 3rd tattoo. I was very disappointed. Artists were not friendly -- went w/ 2 friends who got their first tattoo artists gave no instructions on how to care for tattoo. Would not recommend!

Skinquake seems like a pretty good place to go for tats. I have two but I got them in bigger cities. I have gone into Skinquake with friends and watched as they got theirs though and they do a really good job. The people that work there seem to really be artists and if you don't already have your art in mind, they have a lot of examples.
