I went here on my 18th birthday for my first tattoo and the experience was great! There was no pain and the end result is beautiful! Dennis is a very skilled and talented tattooer; I would recommend him and his business to anyone!

Samantha M., Customer

My experience was nothing short of perfect!!!! I was there to purchase a few supplies, and Denis was very helpful. He is experienced and knowledgable about all aspects of the tattoo industry. He had everything that I needed including his own line of tattoo inks, and they work phenomenally. He offers a very broad range

Kori W, Customer

Dennis has done both my tattoo’s ( one of them twice) and I can’t be any happier with the work he does. For a great tattoo done the way you want it at a fair price go to Ancient Art Tattoo and ask for Dennis

Exceptional service, the owner is very nice as well as the employees. I’ve gotten both my tattoos done here and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. They charge a good amount that won’t break your budget for very good quality work.
