i recently travelled to NYC for my 30th bday and i knew while i was there i wanted to get ink'd! I emailed several tattoo shops, weeks before i travelled and logan responded very quickly and came across very professionally, told us to research him and his work as i specifically wanted a black and grey piece doing.

I researched his work and was very impressed (jus use google images type in logan aguilar) we communicated via several emails then logan got to work on my custom drawing.

On the day we were made to feel very comfortable by logan and rob at the shop, when i seen the artwork i was blown away only for logan to tell me it would look even better as a tattoo!!!

He was right aswell! he sat straight through the sitting and made me feel at ease even towards the end of the 6hrs when the pain was becoming nearly too much.

However, once finished the pain was all worth it as i gazed at my amazing work of art on my skin, logan is a very experienced and knowledgable tattoo artist and a funny guy too, he produced exactly what i wanted which was a classy piece of art and it has left everyone in amazement as they study his work on my arm.

If i was living in the states i wouldnt go anywhere else and would recommend him to anyone, you wont be disappointed.

I went in for the 2nd tattoo session to finish a sleeve tattoo and experience was just as good as the first. Before the first session, I went in only with an idea in my head and Logan was able to take the exact image that I had in mind and make it into a great tattoo. One of the problems I have with tattoo shops in NYC is that some of the artists for whatever reason have a big ego. They don't listen to your idea and want to create their own or just don't treat you like a "customer" but Logan listened to everything I had to say and helped make my idea even better. The amount of research he did for my tattoo shows that he really cares about the artwork as well as producing a great end product.

For anyone who says that Venus is too pricey is out of their minds. For some things you just shouldn't go for the cheapest service. Tattoos are forever and you should be willing to pay for your perfect tattoo. At the end of the day, Logan treated me as a customer should be treated, the tattoo looks unreal so far and I will definitely continue to go to him even after my sleeve is finished.

Pros: Knowledgeable Staff/Super Nice

Cons: None

Not only are the pieces of jewelry way over priced when gold body jewelry of better quality can be found elsewhere, but the staff knows nothing about body piercings. I have a number of piercings all over my body and came there often to find jewelry. Every time i have been more than disappointed, i only returned because so many things had gone wrong with previous things i had bought there that i needed to return to get them fixed. For one, never order online or over the phone with them, everyone i talked to who had dealt with this company has received their order in the wrong colors, gauges, numbers ect. second, dont let any one here touch you. while getting my nipple ring changed the piercer took the old one out and shoved the new one through without tools it was incredibly painful, and he did this even after i had requested he used tools! On top of it i was charged a 20 service fee for putting the jewelry i had just bought in! I could have done a better job myself and was appalled that Venus would charge to put jewelry you just bought from them in! (which they do every time while other shops do it for free!) Third, i bought a lip stud, the assistant put it in and said it was fine so i bought it, the next day my lip was in pain and the stud had been pulled into my lip...the bar was way way too short, a mistake not even a rookie piercer should ever make. I complained and they gave me store credit which i used to buy top pieces for microdermals aka anchors. I specifically said that the jewelry was to be used for microdermals, it was oblivious that no one on the staff had any idea how to work with this type of piercing and I will complain to the BBB to make sure they stop faking that they do to save others from the ordeal i went through following this mistake of theirs. The bars were too long...which, anyone who knows the littlest about this type of piercing knows that your skins pulls it in, means that if the thread is too long to fit into the base your skin will pull the base under until the top piece rests on the surface of your skin. The piercings were on my back so i was not able to see this mistake myself, 6 months later i needed to have the piercings surgically removed because the base had sunk too far into my skin.

The staff here knows nothing about piercings but more recklessly will act like they do to sell you anything! On top of it the jewelry isnt well handled at all, it all sits in very dirty casings in the store, there are stains all over the mountings that hold the jewelry and the staff lets you hold jewelry then puts it back in a box filled with the rest of its kind so that they can all share the germs from the street, and i bet if you asked for them to pierce you they would grab a piece straight from the same box and use it on you right away without sterilizing it. Save yourself the horror of their incompetence and some money, and find somewhere else to go.

The design I wanted was a fairly complex reproduction. Logan did a beautiful job--I was so impressed. Even my Dad (who generally thinks that tattoos are pointless and stupid) was shocked and said it looked "amazing" when he first saw it. Great shading and value, with a very cool watercolor effect around the edges. Logan truly does have a very soft touch, both artistically and in terms of the pain factor. He's also a really nice guy who made me feel like I was in very good hands straight from the get-go. Overall, I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. I'm normally reluctant to give anyone a full 5/5 rating, but Logan was just that solid.

For years I have wanted to get a tattoo but couldn't decide what I wanted or where to put it. Plus I was a little bit of a baby thinking about the tattooing experience. A friend of mine, who had been to Venus Modern Body Arts, recommended that I not only go there but to ask for Logan. I did and had the best experience. Logan was so gentle and really cared about his art. He helped me with size and placement. I got a beautiful red rose. The details are so brillant that people can't believe it is real. He also follows up with his clients via email and answers any question that you have. You should go see Logan not only for your first tattoo but all future art. He is a brilliant artist and loves doing flowers. And his portraits will blow you away!
I couldn't be happier!!

I got my tattoo done last week by Logan. I could not have been happier with the service and with the job that he did. I got a short quote done on my foot. He helped me pick out the right spot so that the tattoo would not fade/look HORRIBLE after a little while. He was SO patient considering I asked him to write out the words in different fonts five times! He was extremely nice and funny and really helped me to relax and feel comfortable. He made sure I was okay with everything before he did it and was extremely helpful and knew what he was talking about, and was also an amazing artist! Seriously, if you want to get a tattoo done GO TO LOGAN! I have nothing but good things to say it was overall a great experience!

I went to Venus to get pricing info on a tattoo. I spoke with Logan Aguilar. Even on initial impression he was extremely professional. The pricing is pretty much comparable for any good tattoo. After looking over some of Logan's art I decided I wanted him to do this tattoo for me. Luckily, I was able to get in the next day to get the ink. The picture I had given was very pixelated when blown up. 4 hours of ink later and I was blown away. Logan took this crappy image and made the most beautiful tattoo. The ink has definition and depth to it. I'm not going to say it was painless, because no tattoo is, but Logan made it as painless as he could. The ink could not be better and I am so impressed with his true art. The only problem I have is that all of my other tattoos now look like they were done by kids compared to this new piece. I highly recommend Logan Aguilar for any work you are considering.

I wanted a small star tattoo for so long but had heard all these horor stories about tattoos hurting too much, your skin getting scraped and regretting it afterwards.

Looked at Citysearch and thought that Venus MBA seemed a decent place. When I got there I was totally freaking out and was SO nervous. I chatted with Logan who took all the time in the world to help me relax. He was very patient and not pushy at all. The place is also super clean and professional. Logan even did a couple of pinches on me so I can get a sense of what it feels like....and I will tell you this: It did NOT hurt at ALL!!! It was the easiest thing ever and Logan even helped me pick a cool color (purple) and did exactly what I wanted to do.

Conclusion: if you are a newbie and intimidated by the other reviews bc they come from people with HUGE experience with tattoos and you feel like a tattoo dork and you are not sure you can trust the reviews bc they talk about these super complex tattoos that are not for you...just go to Logan at Venus MBA. Don't get me wrong he still is the guy for complex stuff but your little tiny tattoo will get the same attention by a great professional and you won't feel nothing but a little pinching for a minute or two and then you will have your cool little tattoo and go home super happy!

I wanted a small star tattoo for so long but had heard all these horor stories about tattoos hurting too much, your skin getting scraped and regretting it afterwards.

Looked at Citysearch and thought that Venus MBA seemed a decent place. When I got there I was totally freaking out and was SO nervous. I chatted with Logan who took all the time in the world to help me relax. He was very patient and not pushy at all. The place is also super clean and professional.

Pros: Logan is super professional and patient with newbies

Cons: A bit expensive for very very simple designs

I went to Venus with a friend because he wanted to get a piercing. We chose Venus because they have some dope jewelry. Bonus- Rob (the guy who did the piercing) is amazing- clean, quick and skilled. Double Bonus- I was looking for a place to take my mom to get her first tattoo and Venus just recently reacquired Logan as the artist. Brilliant move! When I came back it was service with a smile. We told him what we were looking for and he took it to another level (AN AMAZING ONE). The sketch was hot, and the tattoo is even hotter. Logan does not have a heavy hand and was very gentle with both of us. He is a master with black and shading, and I really appreciated that. He has won numerous competitions, and it is obvious why. His artwork has depth and originality. I'm going back to make some changes to other tattoos and have recommended him to all my friends. Venus brings its A-Game every time.

Pros: best tat so far

Cons: none

I was in the city visiting for the billionth time and decided I wanted my first tattoo. I looked up tattoo places in the city and this place was pretty highly rated, not to mention I've walked by it a bunch of times so it stood out in my mind. I had the male tattoo artist and he was very nice and understanding. I don't know who this Rhonda is, but thank god I didn't have her. Even the artist and the piercer were complaining about her while I was in the waiting area. The tat I got was just a simple design but it turned out very nice. I have several friends with many tats and ive watched them being done and honestly it didn't hurt nearly as much as I thought it would. I don't know if this had anything to do with the artist but either way, bravo on the work.

Wanted a piece forever like 3 years had an idea and a copy of a sketch I liked from a comic, but I wasn't sure how serious I was, this is permanent. Showed it to Chantal she loved and offered to draw it up. When I came back and saw it I knew I wanted it for sure she took it to a whole new level increasing the detail and really hitting the emotion I wanted from the character in the piece. The price was high but not in comparison to the size of the piece and it took a little longer than expected and she didn't add the extra time into the price. She was nice, professional, bought me a bagel, and offered me her ipod so I could watch cartoons while she shredded up my ribs. After all was said and done I couldn't be happier with how it came out and I can't wait to go in for my next one.

i came into the shop expecting to see my regular Tattooer Ronda, and I was informed she no longer was working there. As I was about to leave, I was approached by a very high pitched voice girl telling me that she would be able to fit me in. fit me in to what?? They were all just sleeping on the couches doing nothing. It definitely did not look like her schedule was that full where she would have to "fit" me in anywhere!! At the moment, I didn't quite know what to do. I knew I wanted to get in touch with Ronda, but didn't know if I would be able to. The annoying voice girl kept pressuring me so I half agreed to maybe get tattooed by her. I came to my senses when I saw her pamphlet of a portfolio and realized that that would be an insult to my tattooer! I was about to walk out. The guy sleeping & annoying voice girl then told me I had to pay $25.00 just for opening up my mouth in the shop I guess? We never even discussed a price or when, Because nothing else took place that I'm aware of. In the heat of the moment I paid the $25.00, only to get the hell out of there!! Listen, $25 is not much to me, but if they are THAT hard up for cash since Ronda left, they could have it!! Do yourself a favor... STAY AWAY!!

So i woke up one day wanting to get my whole side tatooed in a very feminine way, but i wasnt sure which tattoo parlour to use. After doing some reaserch, i decided on Venus Tatto. First of all, I called and told them i wanted this work done on the day after. Every other tattoo parlour would tell me i needed an appointment, and a few consultations, to have an artist desingn such a tattoo. Finally Logan @ venus Tattoo, spoke to me over the phone, and told me to come in the next day. I had a vision of what i wanted, but had an amateur sketch(which i had drawn myself), so i sent him a picture of the sketch on the day of the tattoo(which was a CRAPPY PICTURE). Upon my arrival, i was soooo happy to see, he had drawn the tattoo the way i imagined in my head. It was perfection! He was extremely gentle with me, and very patient. He has gentle and quick hands. He is officially MY TATOO GUY!!! Go check him out if you ever need work done! His Art Rocks!!!!!!!

Hi Everybody who has been to Venus Modern Arts!!
I just have a question about tongue piercings. Can somebody tell me about a tongue piercing experience at Venus? I am considering having that done, other than my ears i haven't had any other type of piercings. I have been doing my research online, but the more i read, the more afraid I get. So please send your reviews as well as if the shop would like to contribute any additional info. I am definitely getting my tattoos done with Rhonda, since everyone is singing her praises. I want my tattoos to come alive on my skin.
Thank you for your reviews in advance.

I got my tattoo on Valentine's Day with Logan. He is a superb artist- if you care at all about the detail in your tattoo, seek his advice. He is incredibly meticulous with his craft and will sit down with you (over several meetings) to perfect the design. The establishment is committed to fulfilling whatever it is youd prefer- ive been to several places that have told me that the intricacy of my design was too difficult to do because of the size but Logan made it happen. If youre looking for no-nonsense meaningful drawings, go to Venus, ask for Logan... bring him cookies.

I recently got a big piece of work done by Ronda and it was something I have been researching for a while. I looked at other places and because of the great reviews about Venus and Ronda I decided to try the place out. I met with Ronda for the first time about a month ago and she really helped me figure out exactly what I wanted. She put alot of time in drawing it and when it finally came out on paper I really liked what she did. I have to say after 3 sittings I feel like I made the best decision in choosing Ronda. She has thus far made my tattoo to look absolutely beautiful, I should only have one more sitting left. I can't say enough about it!! I love my new tattoo and can't wait to get more, only by Ronda. She is really a perfectionist with her work and knows what she is doing. She is a really cool person and made the time go by fast. I love her work and would definitely recommend her to anyone I know that wants a tattoo. I'm extremely happy!!!!
No cons whatsoever!!!

I've been going to venus once a week now for over a year, I get all my ink done by Ronda. I've had work done all over the country and there's no one more talented and experienced than Ronda. I came to her with a concept and she brought it to fruition. Finding a good artist is like finding a good doctor, once you find a good one you never want to see anyone else. I recommend Ronda to all but especially those who are looking to get that big piece done that you've always wanted but can't quite get it right in your mind. She 's the best in the business.

Got a tattoo last week at Venus. Ronda was outstanding. She worked with me for two hours on various design ideas until we had something I was happy with (the tattoo is of my son's name; I had a rough idea of what I wanted but needed to improve upon it) and did excellent work during the actual tattooing process. I am very happy with the experience and would definitely recommend her to others.

I usually get all of my work done in my home state of CT where I've been going to the same place for a couple of years, so when I looked for a new one in New York I wanted something clean, someone I could trust, and a place I could definitely use again and again. This is it. I went a month ago and Ronda took my friend and I as walk-ins, made us feel really comfortable and we both had a great experience. She's cooky but very friendly, and I could tell by her other clients that this was someone I'd be satisfied with. She listened to what I wanted and did a great job, I'm very excited, thanks, Ronda! I can't wait to book my next appointment. My only vice is that the normal price is a little expensive, but it is New York and I'd rather be safe than cheap and sorry. Guy behind the counter was cool too.
