My wife and I decided to get matching tattoos for our 30th Anniversary. We followed the recommendation of my son (which in this case was actually a good idea) and went to the Slave to the Needle in Wallingford. I won??t say I??m a fan of the idea of getting a tattoo, but after having the finished product forever etched into my skin, I can say it was worth it.
I shopped around for a tattoo in the area and settled on Slave to the Needle in Seattle because a close workmate had nothing but glowing reviews for them. They were very respecting of my tattoo desires and treated my slightly clich tattoo like it was one of a kind (which to me it was. It meant a great deal). I will now do my part to recommend them to whoever I know who is looking for a tattoo.
I decided to be the ??world??s best dad? and do the generic (but still pretty sweet) thing of getting my daughter??s name tattooed on my body . I??m not a tough guy or a liar so I will admit that it hurt, but it was nice to be at a place like Slave to the Needle. Everyone gave me a good natured ribbing that really took my mind off the fact that needles were puncturing my skin...repeatedly. This was my first tattoo, so it was really a special experience for me, and I appreciate Aaron and company being so amazingly cool about it.
I got my last tattoo years ago when I was in the military. I had been on the fence whether I??d ever get another one. One of my friends had gotten a really impressive sleeve done by Aaron Bell and it encouraged me to get a new one. I??m really pleased with the work on the tattoo and am now kicking around the possibility of getting yet another one!
After a few consultations, I finally got my tattoo at Aaron Bell's Slave to the Needle. It was something I've been meaning to do for years and even though I didn't request the coolest or most original tattoo, I was treated with the utmost respect and appreciation for my business. More places need to be like Slave to the Needle!
It's been awhile since I got my last tattoo and I've been in the marked for a new one. To commemorate the good things that have been going for me this year, I went searching for the right tattoo place for me. After asking several of my younger friends, I stopped by Aaron Bell's Slave to the Needle. The place was leaps and bounds better than any of the tattoo parlors I remember visiting as a younger man. I didn't know that friendly tattooists existed. My first exploratory visit and I was sold. I made an appointment for the next day and had a moderately (keep in mind, I had needled in my arm) pleasurable experience. My tattoo looks great and I no know where to go next time I'm in the market.
I had touch up work done at Slave to the Needle yesterday and though I am still a little sore, I am really happy with the job they did. I was recommended Slave to the Needle by my friend Amanda and decided to give them a try on touching up an older tattoo that has started to fade a bit with time. The darn thing looks absolutely amazing, and I think it might look better than it did when I first got it. Slave to the Needle definitely passed my trial run, if I get a new tattoo in the future, I am for sure going there.
Slave to the Needle obliged my silly cliched tattoo idea to get my children's names tattooed on my body. Even though it's a common tattoo that parents have been getting for a million years, Aaron and his staff treated me as if I was getting the most original, important tattoo on Earth...which to me, it is. I really appreciate that more than I could ever say or type. Thank you guys.
Yes the tattoos look great but service is less than desirable. They seem a little unprepared and unorganized. I got a large tattoo done there with a lot of filling in and a few details. I went there 2 times prior to my actual tattoo date to discuss the design and process. When it was time for my appointment the guy didn't have a big enough needle so he just scrapped me to death with a smaller needle. It took 2 more hours than it needed to be. Also, don't expect them to design anything for you. Go in with your design already mapped out.
