I had Kari today for my helix piercing and it was great. Thank you!
Got my nose pierced by Zak Crouch and he was phenomenal. Incredibly knowledgable about his craft, impeccably clean, as well as professional and a nice guy. Followed his advice perfectly and my nose piercing has healed amazingly - it's been almost 5 months and I've had 0 problems. The shop in general is so clean and professional. I'll definitely be returning when I decide to invest in a tattoo.
Just got my first tattoo done here by Nikki and she was great! I loved the atmosphere, and the artists obviously like what they do AND know what they're doing. I'll be coming back for my second tattoo.
Kevin Hamilton did an amazing job! We linked up at the DC tattoo convention on a recommendation from my brother who has a few Tattoos from Kevin. Kevin was super cool, there were a million-and-one distractions to include my family waiting patiently close by and Kevin was just as chill, friendly and professional as I could ever ask for. Many thanks to Kevin and the entire Bleed Blue Tattoo crew!
