Bear has done all of my work and he is just the nice sweetest guy. He takes pride in his work and treats every tattoo he does as a collaboration between artist and client. I have been going to him for over 10 years and I have NEVER seen him rush through a tattoo to get to the next client. The atmoshpere in the shop is friendly and welcoming.

Everytime I have work done I leave the shop with a stack of business cards to pass out because people so often stop me and ask where I had my fairy's done.

In life you get what you pay for so if you are looking for a tattoo on the cheap you are probaly going to get shoddy workmanship and MERSA to boot.

Bear's Den offers superior craftsmanship, professional staff, and a sterile environment & that's worth every penny in my book!

I went to Bear's Den Tattoos for my 6th & 7th tattoos & a few piercings. The guy Shane was great! He gave me EXACTLY what I asked for & more! He made my idea come to life! He also does piercing & makes you feel so at ease I barely felt him pierce me. I will only be going back to this shop. They are very professional. Bear (one of the owners) is great also! He welcomed me as I was about to walk in the door & said that someone could help me inside.
FYI: If you are a single female & need some eye candy I would recommend Shane! Great artist & easy to talk to.

My husband and I have been clients about 5 years.
We always get matching tattoos. We are at 11 matching currently. Bear, Shane, and Staff are always polite and give each client individual attention. They pay attention to your ideas and what you want when getting a tattoo. They are focused on you and quality. Their rooms are organized and instruments are sterile. We have found them to be genuine and honest. Their prices reflect their EXCELLENT work.

I went in to Bear's Den because a lot of people told me it was a great tattoo parlor, but I was less than pleased. I had an auryn that I wanted tattooed, and I was told that it "couldn't be done" unless it was huge, and I mean about the size of a cantaloupe, give or take a few millimeters--that's way too big for me. I then asked if they could fix a tattoo on my foot, and was again met with rejection. Basically, the two artists I spoke to couldn't care less about me and they then retreated to the back room and never got back to me on re-inking the star I needed to have re-inked, etc, so I left. I went to Meade's Tattoo instead, and they did the auyrn, in the size I wanted, and it's perfect. They also re-inked my star tattoo and fixed it. Maybe if I had spoken to Bear directly things would have been different, but what is obvious to me is that the two associates I spoke to aren't talented enough to do smaller, intricate tattoos, and neither do they care about their customers.

I had heard a lot of good things about the studio so I decided to stop in get my first tattoo priced there. Not only did it take them a good while to even look at me once I walked in the door it took the guy another 10 minutes to even come back from the back room with a price (I was the only other person there as well!). I want to get a small 4 leaf clover, and apparently a 1 1/2 inch tattoo on your ribs is "too small" from what I heard them saying in the back. Of course this "too small" tattoo would have cost me $100 there. If you are concerned about quality I have heard they are great, but if you want a welcoming experience that isn't going to be rediculously priced I'd say try somewhere else. Then again, everyone's experience is different.

Pros: clean looking and good recomendations

Cons: small, not very personal, didn't seem to care, over priced

Bear's Den is amazing! The staff is wonderful and they really care about providing quality service. I got my first tattoo done there and it was a fabulous experience. They are very clean and maticulous. They are supportive during the healing process and take great pride in their work. All of their artists are very talented and I would definitely go back for another tattoo. I HIGHLY recommend Bear's Den for anyone who is interested in getting a tattoo and wants it done by a skilled professional who will do as good of a job as if the tattoo were on themselves.

Pros: Welcoming environment, friendly/knowledgeable staff, very clean

Cons: Some of the other customers are annoying, limited parking, they are the best so it might be crowded (make an appointment)

Having had my lip pierced twice beforehand, I was used to disappointment. My attitude changed however, when I turned up at Bear's Den. The staff was incredibly friendly, and made me feel extremely comfortable. Even walking into the studio, you can see how clean and well maintained everything is. The man who pierced me thoroughly cleaned my lip beforehand, and numbed me slightly as well. He was very accomadating when I winced at the pain, and joked saying i could pinch him back if I pleased. He was quick, and precise. In several weeks, my piercing healed up, and is exactly where it should be; I am more than happy with my piercing now, and plan to return to Bear's Den in the future. I STRONLY recommend them for any piercing needs.
