I will start out by saying...awesome!
I have gone to a few places for ink in the past and while they are ok, I never had a kick ass tattoo that I was happy with until today. And I have had a few bad times while getting tattoos. I spoke to

Maya gave me my first tattoo about a million years ago (okay, actually it's more like going on 18 years now) and even as a young sapling ;-), did amazing work. I've continued to follow her work over the years, even though I've since

I have had beautiful experiences at Third Eye and got all my tattoos there. Had my first tats and piercings from Maya over 15 years ago and they still look fresh. Since then I also have gotten ink from Lou and Brian too. I have never seen

Got my first tattoo here about 4-5 years ago. A one time deal evolved into the most beautiful sleeve, an amazing back piece between the shoulders, and a host of the most beautiful work ever to be seen. I have been tattooed by Lou and

OK, first off: it's hard to find (right off 5th on Union, but in the basement of Park Slope Eye with very little signs), and it's not much to look at, clean sterile and white, with some new age music playing. I felt like I was taking my girl in for an abortion! So sure, I was a bit wary... that is until I met the friendly, easy going staff and artists. Walk-in wasn't possible that day, but I made an appointment with Lou and he gave me the phoenix tattoo on my back I always wanted! Beautiful work, and can't wait for another. The pricing is fair for good ink that would prolly cost 3X as much in the city.

The Shop: Third Eye Tattoo feels like a dentist's office, except MUCH cleaner and MUCH more sanitary. The floors are spotless, the lighting exceptional, and the counters neat and clean. Each artist has their own room, with separate equipment and cabinets. Organization is very well laid out, and everything is in it's place.

Getting started: CLEANLINESS is the name of the game. I was a little worried when I first sat in the chair the week after, to get my tattoo started. It was my first tattoo experience, so I was nervously watching every move Brian was making. But my fears were put to rest when I saw how he operated. The room is spotless. He washed his hands before he touched anything sterile, something he repeated continuously throughout the session. New gloves were used every time he left the room and came back (used about 5 pairs of gloves that I counted, each pair disposed properly). The razor and needles came from locked cabinets, and everything was in sterile packaging, which Brian opened in front of my eyes. I haven't seen such exceptionally hygienic practices even in doctor's offices. He used new inkwells for each ink, and any remaining ink was properly disposed in the room's sink. New ink was used every time he needed to change inks. I also saw him put the machines together, and insert the new sterile needles in them. In summary, everything was done as it should be, and Brian takes safety very seriously.

The artist: Brian KNOWS his trade by heart. He is extremely knowledgeable about the art of tattooing, and TREMENDOUSLY talented at what he does, Before and during the session he patiently and thoroughly answered every single question I had, always with a smile. I asked a lot of questions, and he answered them all. He gave me a detailed account of how the modern tattooing machine came around, and described several other alternative methods used throughout the world, and this was just because I asked him. I really liked the fact that he knew so much and shared it with me. I can't say enough about his dedication to the work he did on me. He got so much into it, that from the originally planned three hours, the tattoo session lasted for almost six. His attention to detail is IMPECCABLE and he works the tattoo gun like magic. He never rushed, and took his time to get every little detail PERFECT. Throughout the session, he kept noticing additional things which could be tweaked to make the piece stand out even more, and these little changes made the piece stand out in an AMAZING MANNER. He worked the shading like a magician. I don't know what else to say....I could not have been more pleased with everything. He is the man!

The final piece: The final product looked so awesome, I just about asked him to sign it. A true masterpiece on my upper arm, and I could tell Brian was very very pleased with his work as well. I LOVE my new tattoo. Brian took the time to painstakingly describe to me the aftercare procedures, and made sure I understood everything clearly. He was also available promptly on the telephone when I had a question about aftercare. I could not have asked for a better tattoo artist, and felt that I got much more than my money's worth at Third Eye. Would recommend the shop to anyone in a heartbeat.

I just got my first tattoo from Brian at Third Eye and it was a really great experience; he was calm and professional, and the manager was great at putting my mind at ease making jokes while I was filling out the paperwork. My tattoo wasn't what I had in mind; it's waaay better!

I love the tattoos I've gotten here. I've been tattooed by Maya, Brian and Lou and I'm thrilled with everything I've gotten there. I've also been pierced by Maya and she's really great, so gentle, considering I had a needle stuck in me at the time!
The shop is clean, the manager is sweet and the artists really kick ass. I would never go anyplace else!

I've been getting my work from this shop for over a decade and my tattoos still look just as good now as they did the day I got them. The shop is clean, the artists are all very talented and professional. I really love the work I got from Maya, Paul and JoAnn and I'm planning to get one from Brian soon. My only recommendation is to call a couple of weeks ahead, sometimes these guys are hard to get an appointment with, but it's well worth the wait!

received my first tattoo from Maya in 1997, have gotten four more since and will be inked again in the very near future. Maya is truly a professional and her work definitely stands the test of time. I would highly recommend Maya and Third Eye to anyone serious about getting bodyart.

This is a great place to get work done! The work the artists do is unbelievable! The colors are bright and vivid. Give them an idea and they will sketch it out and literally bring it to life! I have been getting inked by Maya since 1996 and trust me, I still get compliments on tats that are over 10 yrs old! I would not hesitate to recommend her or any of the other artists.

I went to Brian Wren to have an old tattoo covered up. The experience could not have been any more professional from the consultation period through to the end product.

I would highly recommend Brian to anyone interested in getting a tattoo and I will certainly be back for further work.

I went to check out Third Eye, thumbed through the portfolios and decided to work with Brian Wren.

His skill is outstanding - My tattoos turned out perfect. Brian is a true professional. I highly recommend this shop.

I had some scarring and burned skin on my abdomen that I wanted to cover up. I had a vague idea that some branches with cherry blossoms would look nice. I went in one day and spoke with tattoo artist Brian Wren, who looked at my scars, listened to my ideas, and took a picture of my tummy. I made an appointment for a couple of weeks later, and when I showed up Brian had made a preliminary drawing on a copy of the photo he had taken, which I liked. The actual final product, however, is so much better! The level of detail, color, shading, etc. is phenomenal. My scars are completely camouflaged, and I've now got a beautiful piece of body art. By the way, I'm a middle-aged woman, and I felt completely comfortable and at ease in this very clean, laid-back environment. Highly recommended!

First of all, I'm not a "hard core" tattoo guy. I just wanted a pair of diamond shears (a tool used in glassblowing) on my inside forearm. A friend (with LOTS of ink) recommended this place and since I live in the Slope I stopped in. They had lot's of books and I really liked the grey-scale work of a guy named Luis (or was it "Louis"?). He was in so we talked and set up an appointment. Since it really is my only real tattoo, I can't say if it was a great value, but the place is nice, everyone seems professional but laid-back at the same time. Now it's almost three years later and the tattoo still looks great. The lines are still sharp, the shading is still perfect. Maybe it's time for something on the other arm...

Cons: Tattoos hurt! (...actually, I kind of liked the pain)

Just wanted to add a couple letters to a black wrist tattoo, found these guys on here (good location for me). Spoke with them a few times on the phone first, and they were always helpful and polite. I went in on a Thursday to find a font I liked. They had a good selection of books to choose from. I met the artist I'd be working with, Brian, and he helped me with the layout of the lettering. I made an appointment for Saturday so my girlfriend could come with me. Brian was friendly and explained everything really well. The shop looks clean. I'm very happy with the result and got it for a great price.
