Got my first tattoo done by Gil. It is perfect! Not only that but it wasn't just a simple tattoo. Copied it just like the picture i showed him. If I ever get another tattoo I will go there again. Outstanding job!

When I first met Gil a few years ago, I knew that he would be the one to do my first tattoo. After years of wanting a tattoo, I decided that I wanted to do it for my 40th birthday. I am so happy that I went to Gil and Tattoo Odyssey.

I will get right to the point. Gil does a fantastic job with my tattoo. He is a very nice guy on top of that. I can't believe there is a better Tattoo parlor in the Delaware Valley or even the state of Pennsylvania.

I have to say, choosing a tattoo, and artist was a long process for me. I had a bad tattoo done and i wanted to be sure that it didnt happen again. After lots of research I decided to meet with Gil from tattoo odyssey. I took the 45 minute drive there, met Gil, we went over my idea, he made some changes to it so it would be exactly how i wanted it. His work is absolutely the BEST. You cannot even tell I had a tattoo before, it completely dissappeard. I would highly recommend his shop to anyone, and now i feel confident that i have someone i can trust on my next tattoo. Thanks again Gil. Also his shop is very clean, and has a great atmosphere, Nikki was great to deal with in scheduling, and any other questions i had. If i could give it more stars i would.

Dr. Gil took the time to find just the right picture of the Shure Microphone I wanted for my tattoo, and proceeded to match the picture down to the last detail.
His exceptional eye caught every detail of the shading, and I have been getting nothing but compliments about the clarity of the tat..
Anyone with an idea for a tattoo should see Dr. Gil, and let him do the rest.
p.s. His office assistant (Nikki) is a sweetie-pie, too.. She'll make sure you're comfortable the whole time

Cons: NONE!!!!!

Gil did my first tat in 98. I designed numerous tat's for friends who all went to Tattoo Odyssey to get their ink done. I saw how my work looked on them, it was as if I did it myself. Ok, So i put off getting my second tattoo from Gil b/c I wanted to wait until after the summer... fast forward 12 years... I went back. Never thought to go anywhere else. Over the course of time I did a drawing that was what I wanted it to be. Showed it to Gil. He made a few recommendations. i made an app't. (the app'ts take time, b/c great artists have lots of followers). He expected 5+ hours on this piece. I was ready. he was ready. He said If I was willing to stay late, so was he. He went to work. The work was amazing. Just like he said, it was MY drawing, he was just the guy who tattoo'd it on my arm. I was there about 4 hours and it flew by. He makes you feel comfortable. Makes you laugh. Perfect mix of conversations and concentration... and didn't get annoyed when i asked a ton of questions (at least to my face, lol). I am already rolling my hamster wheel on my next tattoo and I know that Tattoo Odyssey is where I am going to get it. If you want one, get one. TATTOO ODYSSEY.

I've wanted to get a foot tattoo for a while, however, I wanted to go somewhere close to home. I began my search on-line, of course. Searching to find the right parlor. I came across Tattoo Odyssey, which had excellent reviews. I scheduled my appointment and I am very pleased with my tattoo. Dr. G. not only did great detailed work on my foot tattoo, he also recolored and changed the name on another one of my tattoos. Next week I am going to schedule my next appointment for him to fix the strawberry 'that's not' and create the Egyptian Eye on my right shoulder blade.

I' ve been going to Gil for twenty years. He has the talent and experance you want in a tattooest. If you have an idea he will let you know how to make it look the best with color and placement. Gil does fantastic cover ups,and loves a challage. He knows what colors to use to make your tattoo pop, but his black work is unriveled.To fine better quality work would be difficult if not impossible.The best is right here in phila pa.

I finally just got my first tattoo at 26 years old. I went my whole 26 years not knowing what kind of tattoo to get so my girlfriend told me to go to tattoo odyssey to see what I can have done. I had an idea of what I wanted just didnt know how it was going to look. So I went in and met Carl. I told him what I wanted and he told me to come back a few weeks later to see what he could come up with. Over the two or three weeks waiting for him to draw the tattoo up I started contemplating if I really wanted to get this tattoo. So finally the day came to where i went in to see it. Lets just say I was shocked by the drawing and I knew that was the tattoo I wanted. So March 6th came around and I went in to get the tattoo. I was nervous because I had no idea what to expect. Carl told me what I would feel and expect the whole time and he knew exactly what he was talking. The whole experience was great except for the pain im in now but it was worth it. I wouldnt go to anyone else and im already thinking of another tattoo to get. So if anyone out there is looking for a tattoo I would go visit Carl at Tattoo Odyssey.

I heard of Carl from a friend of me and my sister's, so we decided to check out tattoo odyssey for my tatto for my 18th birthday. It goes by appointment only, so we were able to schedule my tattoo and hers for that day. I can honestly say that i enjoyed every minute of my experience there, which was a long one. We were there from 12pm-6pm due to us both getting tattoos in the same day. He dedicated so much time to us which is crucial and what every good tattoo artist should do. The whole time he made us feel comfortable, and he was very friendly and great to talk to. The most important part was the outcome of our tattoos though. I got a tattoo in memory of my mom, and he exceeded my expectations of what it could be. I'm 100% in love with my tattoo and it means so much to me, being that it was for my mom. My sister's tattoo came out great aswell, and now we are customers for life :) I would say go to Carl, he is a true artist and a great guy.

Unlike most, walk in, look in a book, and get a tattoo places, Tattoo Odyssey runs on appointment only. They have 2 days (Tuesdays & Thursdays from 2-9pm and Saturdays from 1-6pm. ) where you can walk in and ask someone about your tattoo. It was a 30 minute drive for me (I live in center city), but I'm really glad I did.

After a string of horrible tattoo parlor visits, I nearly gave up on my mission. I had a fairly simple request--to add a phoenix to my existing dragon. I had gone to several places with my very clear drawing (drawn in Illustrator) of what I wanted. More than one place said they couldn't do it or I wasn't being clear enough. In other words, I had to look at their pattern book and pick one.

Gil, on the other hand, actually draws his work. I had a clear idea, so
perhaps it was easier, but I saw people go in with very vague ideas and come out with something amazing. From the time you come in, he actually takes time to figure out exactly what you want. They require an initial $50 deposit, which they will subtract from the final cost. He'll then take about 2 weeks to draw it and make sure it's perfect before starting. This place is pretty popular, there will be a 4-6 week wait. But believe me, it is absolutely worth it.

The work itself was very precise. As a former draftsmen (for a very short time) Gil has excellent line quality. He's also an amazing artist with an major eye for detail so the shading will be perfect. He didn't just take my drawing and trace it on there. He redrew it so that it matched my old tattoo and shaded both to look like they had been done at the same time.

I originally went in there around September and it was finally completed in November (after 2 sittings). The whole place was very attentive. They called me when he finished the drawing, and made sure to remind me of my appointments. To top it all off, the price was very reasonable. He didn't charge by the hour like most places, he gave me a flat rate up font so I knew exactly what to expect.

You may be hesitant to wait 4-6 weeks, but there is no doubt that I made the best choice I possibly could have made. It's incredible work at a really good price, so I guarantee you will be glad you waited.

I first met Gil 8 years ago when I was looking to add to an arm piece. Since then Gil has done several of my tattoo's including a full back piece (5-4 hr. sittings). Gil does take his time to make sure you get the BEST tattoo,he is a true artist. If you want a quality tattoo see Gil for a piece of art that will last a lifetime.

Gil does take his time to make sure you get the BEST tattoo,he is a true artist. If you want a quality tattoo see Gil for a piece of art that will last a lifetime.

I have been tattooed 6 times, 3 times by Gil and 3 times by south st. hacks. Guess which ones are the best. Honestly, would you rather go to a place that you can walk right in and be in the chair immediately or a place where the artist takes the pic/concept home, works on it, brings you a finished product or 3 versions of the finished product and then schedules you for an appointment. My money goes with the guy who takes his time. Gil is the kind of guy who is going to tell you the truth when you come in. If he doesn't think something is going to look good he won't do it. Go other places and they will put any manner of picture on you and take your money.
If you are looking to put something on your body that will be there for the rest of your life go see Gil.

If you're thinking of getting a tattoo, Tattoo Odyssey is the best shop around. Carl has done all my tattoos and I can't say enough about how much I LOVE them! He created exactly what I wanted and they're absolutely beautiful. I can say, without a doubt, that I will never get a tattoo anywhere else!

After recently moving to Philly I had no idea who to turn to when looking for a tattoo artist. My idea was extremely specific, abstract, unique and of course had to be perfect. Carl and the whole crew at Tattoo Odyssey is exactly who you are looking for. They worked with me and my idea, worked around my schedule and even opened thier shop on days that they were normally closed.

Your tattoo should be both meaningful and memorable and the Tattoo Odyssey is the place to go!

Thanks guys!

I have wanted a tattoo for years. Just couldn't decide on a design. After all, a tattoo is forever. I finally decided to get my Family Coat of Arms. I spent weeks searching the internet for ideas. They all looked the similar (boring), and I really wanted something unique. Then one day I stumbled across this crazy design from the 14th century. It was extremely detailed, and had a lot going on in it, but I knew that I had finally found the right piece for me. Now I had to find someone good enough to do it for me. I was in search of the best artist that I could possibly find. I checked out places on the internet, and asked people I knew about their tattoos. I was at my son's karate class and this dude walks in with this great looking tattoo, and I struck up a conversation with him. He told me he got from Gil and talked about the way he worked with him on his custom design. When I got home and checked out his MySpace page, I knew then and there that this was the guy that I wanted to do my tattoo. His work looked great. I emailed him the design and asked him if he thought that it was to complicated for a tattoo. He confidently said, "No problem". I stopped in and made the appointment and discussed the design. They were very professional. They told me that they would send me a line drawing for my approval. The drawing came and looked great. I couldn't wait. The day finally came. The 5 hours I spent in the shop that day flew by. His professionalism attention to detail are excellent. If (when) I decide to get another, there is no question who I will have do it. It was a Great Experience. Thanks Gil

Gil from tattoo odyssey is the artist. My first tattoo was 25 years ago and it had faded and was poorly done. Gil took an image that I had given him and went over the original tattoo (not done by Gil). My new tattoo completely covered the first and is a masterpiece. I returned to Gil for another challenge. Gave him a photo of something that I wanted done. Gil drew the image and I now have a piece of art on my back. The outcome exceeded my expectations. Everyone that I show my new tattoo , can't believe the detail. You may have to wait a few weeks for an appointment BUT it is trully worth it. This establishment receives my highest praise. Thanks Gil !!!!
