The shop is really clean and the artists are nothing but professional. I came in with just a rough idea and they were able to clean it up into something amazing. I only have two pieces of ink, so I guess I'm not an expert or anything, but my experience here was much better than where I went for my first.

This 40 year old brought his 60 year old mom all the way down from Bellevue for matching tattoos! The staff was so courteous that they didnt even mention how odd that actually is. Seriously though, loved the place, clean, professional and

Katie is the best. I had her do a tattoo on my stomach a few years ago and went back this year for a beautiful foot tattoo. Both times I've given her a general idea what i wanted and she has come up with a great design. Love the place and the work!

Katie is the best, she has now done 3 tattoos for me. I am living in Spokane, but driving all the way to Tacoma is well worth it. I will NEVER get a tattoo from anybody else.

Pros: best place to get a tattoo

Cons: none

This is a nice place. It is very clean and the people are really friendly and talented. I came with my friend to get a tattoo and they were really nice and worked hard to make sure that they had the design perfect.

House of Tattoo is the selection for ink work in the south end. The artists are qualified, talented, and professional. They do high quality work and the facility is clean and sterile. I have had work done there and been impressed each time. My first piece took 3 hours and the owner stayed after hours to finish it in one sitting...Nice!

Very clean. People are awesome. Great music and setting. I got a piercing there but didn't get to experience the tattoo. It was quick and easy, not painful, and they were very informative on how to clean and take care of it. Price was decent.

I chose a snow flake tattoo for the small of my lower back. The color was done in ice-blue and white. I am really happy with the design and color. I knew I wanted a snow flake so the artist researched various designs and suggested a size that would look appropriate for that area of the body.

Like most art, tattoos have meanings known only to their owners. My body art says a lot about who I am, what I like, and where I am going. Body art can tell you a lot about someone so make sure you find something that portrays something about you. My first tattoo experience was a good one. The artists were a lot of fun to talk with and that's part of a good tattoo experience. You can tell these guys (and yes women) love what they do. This is a quality tattoo shop: It's clean, friendly and a fun experience.

Thanks Andre for the tattoo!

Pros: Thumbs up - you can tell the artists take pride in what they do.

I am fully sleeved, have a large backpiece, and am a connoiseur of fine tattoo work. My sleeves and back were done by Andre at House of Tattoo. The staff there are very friendly and knowledgable, and the artist strive to give each person a quality tattoo. I would be reluctant to take the advice of the person who's 2nd tattoo turned out bad. If you didn't like the color why didn't you tell the artist to use a different color? It is afterall YOUR tattoo. Did you allow the tattoo to heal properly? Everybody is different, and tattoos heal differently on different people, that's why they offer free touch-ups on tattoos after they have healed. Did you go back to get the tattoo touched up? Did you tell the artist you did not like the way the color turned out? Did you bother to research the shop and artist prior to going there and getting tattooed? That alone is the most imporant part of getting good tattoos. If someone is walking around with crappy tattoo work, they really can't blame anybody but themselves. Ultimately, it comes down to this, the tattoo is yours, the design the color, the placement, what it symbolizes, the maintenance is all your responsibility. The artwork that comes out of House is high quality. Occasionally, a customer may come in with crappy artwork (usually something they have drawn themselves) and will expect the artist to turn it into a work of art, or even worse, they won't listen to the advice being given by the artist.

I have never recieved a tattoo from house of tattoo but am considering it. But to make a comment about the last person who gave a review.............could you please tell us who did your work. You can't judge a whole shop by just one artist in the shop. Now if there is a particular artist to stay clear of that is great info. Otherwise you are just complaining without offering any reasonable solutions to those that read this. Also did you talk to Katie (the owner of the shop) to see if she would work with you? Besides if she has someone doing bad work in her shop than I am sure she would want to know what people think, since in your opinion it is a reflection of the whole shop. Anyway, everything I have heard and seen come out of there has been pretty impressive work. So regardless of the last review, I think I will be making a visit in the near future.

Pros: convienient location

I got my second tattoo here and was not pleased with the result. I got a small frog, the green the artist chose was not great (I wanted frog green not teal) and he didn't do a good job of filling in the color so bits of my skin color can be seen throughout the tattoo. Unfortunately it was on the back of me so I couldn't truly see the results till after that tattoo was over. Not impressed. There are definately better places out there.

When you get into House of Tattoos you are automatically greeted by someone, and it always seems to be a new person everytime you go in. I haven't personally gotten a tattoo from anyone, but my step-dad has and his tattooist did a great job! He has had the tattoo for about 9 years and its still going strong, no fading or anything. As for me I go there for my piercings I have gotten Jake as the piercer several times now, and am planning on going in soon for another. He is a great piercer and will help you out in any way he can. The staff and service there is awesome.

I had all of my piercings done here, and each visit I always felt welcome & satisfied. Everyone who worked there at the time was always warm and kind. I finally decided to have some work done by Katie and she is TOTALLY AMAZING! I will now go to her every time I need work done. Oh yeah, all the other artists are great too! Thanks guys - keep up the gr8 work!

Pros: Attentive Staff, Extremely Clean, Friendly Staff

Cons: Small

I came here for my first tattoo and was greeted by open, welcoming service. A friend and I looked through countless books and even though I hadn't come before to discuss what I wanted, Katie made all the changes I wanted and was very flexible. She did a great job. The only negative was that the tattoo healed very badly and I had to come back in to get color redone, but Katie did that for free too. She did a great job overall and I love my tattoo. I would go back to Katie again.
