I have been going to Strange Brew for 13 yrs. I first went because I was looking to get an old tat covered up. I had been everywhere, and had gotten the typical response "well, that's pretty dark, the only thing I can do is cover it with something tribal" Most of these places had a good rating, but had little to no artwork of their own displayed. When I went into Chimene's shop, she was working on someone, but greeted me asked me what I needed and pointed me to her photo books. I found 2 photo books overflowing with cover up photos. ONLY cover ups. There were other books just for reg. tats. I knew then, that this was my artist. This isn't your typical shop, either. The atmosphere is calm, the shop smells great, and she has books, oils, candles, tarot cards, and so much more. She is the only one I will go to. I, too, would fly across the world to have her give me a tattoo. Not only is she an incredible artist, but has a plethera of knowledge on many subjects; especially if you are interested in "living off the grid"

The artist/owner did both of my tattoos 10/9 years ago. It was nice to see that she went from a 3 week wait to a 3 month wait. She is awesome!!! Very professional, meticulously clean and sterile, and talented. My tattoos still look great. I'm contemplating a third one, but one thing I know for sure is that I will not ever let anyone else ink me. She is definitely worth waiting and even travelling for!!!

I've had a tattoo done at Strange Brew, and they are very professional.
Before your tattoo is done, you come in to meet with the artist. She will show you all her equipment and sterilizing equipment and give you a list of instructions you MUST follow before she will tattoo you (can't take aspirin 24 hours before your tattoo, cannot drink alcohol, can't be drunk when you come for your appointment, etc.)
She will take time to discuss the design of your tattoo, as well as make several sketches until you are satisfied. She walks you through the entire process, step by step, and after your tattoo work is done, she provides with a detailed list of instructions for caring for your new tattoo, and she offers you a year of free touch ups to your tattoo.
This is the best, cleanest, most professional place to have a tattoo in the Western NY area.

PROS: Very professional environment
CONS: None that I can think of
