My first & last tattoo. I depended on the "artist" to guide me through the process. He told me specific request were not possible instead of admitting he was not capable of creating my request, and made me feel stupid for asking. Nothing complicated only a 4-letter name in cursive a 1/4" of an inch tall (he said that could not be done)...instead it is in block letters a 1/2 inch tall & crooked and looks like a small child wrote it, I won't even show anyone and keep it covered I am so embarrassed!

Besides a "cold" atmosphere neither of the two "artist" had any creativity or talent, and were pushy. I would not recommend. \r
My tattoo and the tattoo of my friend were crooked & look like children did them.

I wanted to address this anonymous post about T.Bob's pricing compared to Black Pearl. #1: I've seen alot of work from Black Pearl and it is sub-par. If really want to save money, have your cousin's friend to it out of their house, same talent, same ideology. #2: People that try to barter for the tattoo price, or find the cheapest available, truly get what they pay for = crap work.

Why would you spend $100 on a pair of tennis shoes, then try to find the cheapest tattoo for some piece of "art" that will be on your body for the rest of your life???? STUPID
IMO, this type of tattoo customer doesn't really can't really discern good work from bad, and they only want tattoos for the sake of representin". So, I suppose having a piece from talented shops, like Trader Bob's is really throwing Pearls before swine (or in this case, black pearl. lol)

I have beautiful work from different talented artists, including some from Trader Bob's. Their prices are very FAIR, considering their talent, and the staff is friendly & easy to work with.

For all you bargain hunters......I know of a good laser tattoo removal business in town......you'll probably be needing their services when you wise up.

I can definately say I was very pleased with Joe at trader bob. He did an awesome cover up for me. I thought I was gonna be stuck with the horrible tattoo I had but he hooked it up. My tatto is bright,unique, and you can't even tell it is covering anything up. It is pretty big and it was a reasonable price. I will be going back.

When i made an appointment at Trader Bob's for a shoulder piece, i felt no anxiety knowing that i would be in great hands. Matt was going to tattoo me, and i had total faith in him. Matt tattooed my boyfriend about 9 months earlier giving him an aborigini 1/4 sleeve and it turned about to be really unique and brightly colored. Giving Matt my ideas for a pixie on a lotus flower, he was back from the drawing board in about and hour with a beautiful rendition of my idea. we started and finished in a lil over an hour and she was beautiful. He accented the lotus in bright blue shades, and toned down her wings with purple, pink, red and orange. I am so blessed to have such a beautiful piece of art on my body, and even more happy to have an ORIGINAL PIECE. MY ADVICE, GET A TATTOO, BUT GET AN ORIGINAL ONE...BE UNIQUE!

I went to Trader bobs yesterday with my brother and 2 sisters and they were going to charge my brother $50 dollars for 2 letters on his neck. They also wouldnt do anything on his hand. Then they were gonna charge my sister $180 for a cross. We decided to leave and go to black pearl, because they are charging too much at trader bobs. But then again there was another lady in there getting her name on her back and they were only charging her $30.. so yea i dont know why we were gonna get charged so much.

I had a friend that took me here as support when she got her first tattoo. The tatoo artist was so profressional, he worked with her, He calmed her down, he talked her through the whole process. He offered suggestions. He made her so relaxed. I would recommend for sure, I'm not sure if the same artists are still there, but my experience at Trader Bob's was a great one.
