Ol Skool is a great tattoo parlour. Since October 2010 I have added over 40 hours of tattoo work to my body all from Alex, Chris, and Val. Their work is amazing, everywhere I go people ask me where I get my work done and have nothing but positive compliments about it. I enjoy and look forward to every appointment I make and the new work that gets added onto my body. All three of the artists have a great sense of humor and business and keep the tattoo experience as comfortable and relaxing as can be.

Ol Skool is the only tattoo shop in the region I refer people to go to as their work I consider to be the best and most complimenting to my particular tattoo preference. All three are skilled in different varieties of tattoo techniques and allowing them to use me as their canvas to express their artistic talents is the most rewarding part of the entire tattoo experience. I look forward to adding more work onto my body and using myself as a showpiece of their artistic expression. Simply put, Ol Skool is the best.

It??s easy to see why Ol??Skool has such great reviews. I was new to this town and after asking around Alex??s name always seemed to come up. I needed to get a piece finished/fixed that I had started 12 years ago. Alex was very professional and capable. Also my husband wanted to get his first tattoo Polynesian inspired and Val hooked him up with a beautiful custom piece that looks amazing even though it??s not finished yet.
Thanks guys!!

I am so glad that my Fiance brought me to Alex and his shop. VAL did my tat and I am so happy that he is the one that popped my cherry. He is a great man and has the insight that will make you very comfortable in anything that happens at OL Skool. This staff is a family and if you consider anything at all you need to know they will do their very best to make it happen the way you want. THANKS GUYS

I went to Ol Skool back in 2006 and recieved my first tat by Alex. It was awesome and since then I have brought over 12 friends there. I have also got two more tattoos there. My friends have even brought their families down from Jersey because of how good their work is. Being at Camp Lejeune its hard to find GREAT work at a good price!! Alex and Chris are fair with their prices and OUTSTANDING on their work. Im taking a new friend down there tomorrow so he can get one too. This tattoo place is the one everybody should go to!!!!

Thanks! You guys rock! :)

Ol' Skool Tattoo shop is the best around. Alex and Chris are outstanding tattoo artists. Alex has tattoo'd a chest piece for me, re-tattoo'd my back, covered up one of my old bad tattoos and is working on my half sleeve. There is no other shop that comes close to the quality that you are going to get at Ol' Skool. Alex has also tattoo'd my wife, sister and my dad. Bring them your ideas and they will tell you exactly what is going to work and what is not going to work. Very professional, very high quality work. These guys are the best!!!

Living in a highly populated Military area, you will find many shops...But good luck finding one like Ol'Skool. Since moving to NC this is the only shop I trust with my tattoos and piercings. Alex and Chris are the best of the best, very clean, professional, and talented artists. This is the only shop I recommend and chances are if you see an awesome tattoo in the Craven/Carteret area, it was done at Ol'Skool. They are great at custom work and have done all of my large pieces including ribs and sleeve..Love these guys

My husband & I both received our first tats today at Ol' Skool! The entire staff went above and beyond to make certain it was a good experience for us, and it was! Alex did an EXCELLENT job on both of our tats! I got a low back butterfly tat and my husband got a cross w/heart on his back. Both of us picked out our tats from the large selection of tattoos they had in the shop. Our advice, listen to the "artist"...the tattoo my husband picked out was an outline of a cross and Alex recommended shading. My husband is so glad he listened to Alex, his tat looks 100% better than the sample tattoo. Both of us highly recommend Ol' Skool Tattoos!! We would go back there without a second thought!

I was very impressed with the staff at Ol' Skool and with the cleanliness of this establishment. Alex did a great job with my Breast Cancer Butterfly tattoo. It was very special to me. He was very professional as well as friendly and courteous. This was my 4th tattoo and it was absolutely the Best yet!! I highly recommend this place and Alex!! I will definitely be a returning customer for sure.

I lived in Havelock for three years and I never got a tattoo as good as the one from Ol' Skool. Alex, Chris, Steve-O... all amazing! I live in Charlotte, now, and I'm driving the five hours just to get tattooed by them again. Best shop in at least a 400 mile radius so far!

I really think that these guys are the best. Alex made my tattoo better that I could have expected.As for the "fat two year old", don't worry I think that "anonymous" is the one with the problem. My husband and I will be seeing you soon. Thanks again for the great piece of art.

The lady who was trying to say that the staff was rude was actually rude off of the start. She wanted a day of the dead skull but all black shading I (Steve-O) drew something up for her and explained that I had just heard about her appt. that morning and she said she didn't like what I had drawn up for her then proceded to tell me that I didn't know what I was doing and that I shouldn't be working at a tattoo shop in the first place. I then told her that if I couldn't help her out then there was no reason for me to be talking to her anymore. There were no curse words or rude remarks made by me but I am sorry that her experience wasn't pleasant I no longer work there anymore but if I was going to get tattooed in New Bern that is the only place to get clean good work!

Ol' Skool came highly recommended from two people. I made the drive out there and knew as soon as I entered that this place was worth the drive. It is clean and Alex and Chris are very professional. I came in wanting an existing tattoo redone and expanded. Alex showed me what he was going to do and I agreed that what he had in mind would look great. The tattoo turned out awesome and the colors are great. I appreciate the time they took to fit me in and I am 100% happy with the results. I will be returning to have another tattoo redone and will recommend them to everyone I know. Don't go anywhere else to get a tat you will be sorry if you pass this place up!

These guys are the real deal. I came in expecting just to look around, but the Chris and Alex helped me to figure out exactly what I wanted and custom designed me the perfect tattoo. They stay busy so I made an appointment and two days later my life was changed forever and my body. I enjoyed the entire experience of being tattooed there. The guys are funny and the atmosphere was relaxing. Thanks for a great tattoo.

I just wanted to say that you guys are the BEST!!! I could not be more happy with the work Alex has done for me and my husband feels the same. And yes we even like the fat two year old. LOL!!!
My husband and I refuse to go anywhere but OL?? Skool Tattoos, and that is saying a lot considering we live in Oklahoma.
It??s well worth the drive.

From the time we walked in the door the staff was rude and nasty. They did not want to do my tattoo the way I wanted it done so I changed it a little (they are supposed to be the professionals). Since I wanted the tattoo I wanted, they decided I was difficult. If you want a tattoo you want then do not go to this place, they do not care what the customer wants. My daughters were with us and the fat two year old at the front started screaming and saying the F word with no regard for my family. When I started to leave because of the language he called us D---head and kicked a table. Saying get the F out of here.
If you want a professional do not go here. There are plenty of other good artists who will give you what you want or work with you respectfully. Steve-O and the fat two year old at the front desk owe my whole family an apology. If you want to be treated like dirt go to Ol Skool tattoo.

I have gotten several tattoos done here and I would never go anywhere else. Alex is the best! The prices are fair and the shop is always clean. I took my mom to get her first tattoo here and Steve-O did an amazing job. She has gone back with me on many occasions and gotten more tattoos. I recommend this place to everyone.

I got my first tattoo at Ol' Skool. The guys are so sweet and funny. I actually talked my mom into getting a tattoo. This is the place that I recommend to EVERYONE. My husband has gotten a tattoo done at every tattoo parlor in New Bern and from now on, Ol' Skool is the best and the only place that he will go to now!! I can't wait to go back and get my next tat! The place is incredibly clean, you can actually smell the rubbing alcohol when you walk in!! Alex, Chris, and Steve-O are the best!!!!

I got my belly peirced here and it was pretty much painless! this was my first peircing other than my ears and it was a very pleasent expeirence. Old School was very clean from what I could tell and the guys there were very friendly, even thought I was scared shitless. I recomend Old School for peircingings.

Personally, I have never gotten a tattoo from here but have accompanied many people who have. They do a wonderful job, they have many tattoos posted on the wall and in books that you can choose from. Also if you still cant find anything you like, you can bring in your own design, or they can pull something up on their computer for you. Their prices are reasonable, and their place of business is very clean
