This place really messed up my most noticable tattoo. The lines are shaky and the whole thing is a scar now because he went too deep. When I went in to ask about it he was a huge jerk and dismissed me. Don't waste you time with this

We have undergone a number of changes over the past few years; we've had some great artists (ie: Erin, Kris & Bryan) go on to other studios, but most notably with the closing of the Saugerties Location, actually ENFORCING a no indoor

Kitty and Skinner (The owners) are very cool and down to earth. I honestly can't say anything bad about them as people, now Skinners work is another story. Back in the day he was an amazing tattoo artist but he just doesn't have it any

The place stinks like an ashtray. I didn't feel especially welcome there. I never got past the front room.

Pros: Horrible work

Cons: Dirty ,foul language

I came in looking for Erin. Everytime I asked about where she went to I was given bs about her leaving the tattoo world. An employee there finally covertly slipped me a piece of paper with her info. how ridiculous and shady. there's no talent left in that shop. Erin works in woodstock, now, fyi.

Pros: nothing anymore

Cons: owner is always angry, smells like smoke, not very helpful

I had gone to Express Yourself about a month ago now to get my nipples done, I have to admit I was a little timid at first. But that all changed when I stepped into Express Yourself, it was not even a whole thrity seconds aafter stepping into the door that I was greeted by one of the staff you told me the basics of my desired piercing, cleaning and care how long it would take to heal fully and most importantly how much it was going to hurt and how long the pain would be 'intense'. But beside all of that i felt very at home in this shop by its setup and friendly staff so within about half an hour I was all done I felt very little pain and I will be goning back at the end of this month to go get my tongue redone. This was the second shop I had ever been too, but it is deffinately my favorite. I highly recommend Express Yourself Tattoo

This was such a great experience. I never write reviews, but after visiting "Express Yourself" I had to say something. I had been to another tattoo shop up in Albany, it was rather scary to be honest. And then i decided to try it again and went to "Express Yourself Tattoo". The people there were very nice and helpfull, especially Erin who did my tattoo. I had decided on something but I wasn't too sure. She talked to me and we rethought the whole thing and made sure it was something I really wanted. This really impressed me, that she didn't just put any old thing on me to make the quick buck. She made sure it was the perfect thing and something I wouldn't regret, and it ended up turning out great! And overall the atmosphere was fantastic, very relaxed and clean. I never thought a tattoo shop could be so nice! I highly recmmend this shop.

This shop provided me with a fantastic experience, The people who work there were very friendly and helpful, especially Erin who did my tattoo. The tattoo came out great and restored my faith in tattoo shops and artists. I highly recommend this shop. I don't know what this other girl was talking about, it's not dark and cloudy at all. the work area is very clean and well lit. Seriously, if you're getting work done in the Hudson Valley, "Express Yourself" is the place to go.

This place changed my mind about tattoos and made me believe that being a tattooist is being an artist. The people who work here are brilliant and, although the prices are a little high, it is worth it if your tattoo requires a lot of attention and patience.

One of two tattoo shops in New Paltz, and I would recommend the other. Although the artists are spectacular, the place is very smokey and dark, and it does not appear to be as clean and the other. A safe place, but a little sketchy.

I used to hear horrible things about Express. Then, I had problems with the other shop in town. I went to Erin to have some of my piercings changed. Then I went to her for some new piercings (including more exotic ones). She is so great and makes you feel so comfortable. Finally, I've gotten tattoo'd by Erin as well. She spent 45 minutes helping me find the correct image I wanted to use (with much frustration...damn computers!) She advised me on what shades would work with my skin tone, and advised me on placement as well. She is very patient and very nice. The other people around the shop are helpful to,but I gravitate towards Erin. She charges a bit more than other places, but quality work and atmosphere are worth it.

I have gotten many excellent tattoos here - including a gorgeous koi arm piece that is the pride of my collection. I recommend Express Yourself, and especially tattooist Erin, for any work you need done. She's even done a coverup and made my "mistake" look great!

Piercing here is great as well - I've had several things pierced as well as my ears stretched.

Great atmosphere and music, and owners Skinner and Kitty are great as well!
