My experience was phenomenal. I cam a lil early and Crystal got right to work. Using every necessary step. She also has really good creativity so If you give her a framework she'll fill in the rest with her own magic.

I went to Sami to get my belly button repierced. I was really nervous because of the bad experience the first time i had somewhere else but she made me feel a lot better about it. She walked me through everything she was doing and even gave me a few options. She did an awesome job! 👏👌

My mom and I got tattooed by Frankie yesterday and it was absolutely amazing. This was my second professionally done tattoo and it was something I've been wanting this specific design for awhile. I'm in love with it (a little fuzzy bee and lavender. The shading and blending is really really pretty and Frankie added some gorgeous highlights and little white dots to the bee and I honestly couldn't be happier with how it turned out. He was a little hesitant to do my mom's tattoo without an outline in fear that it wouldn't really show like she wanted it to , but after a little persuading he carried out her request so beautifully (even though she was being a baby the whole time) The shop itself was really clean and welcoming and Frankie took really good care to clean and sanatize his work space . I'd definitely go back to get more tattoos here !!

I got my first tattoo done by Frankie almost two weeks ago and I am so happy with it! My best friend and I got matching tattoos of the Deathly Hallows on our ankles. We were walk-ins, so I called to confirm availability and the shop accommodated us after asking about the sizing, general design, and locations of our desired tattoos.On arrival, my first impression was that the shop was clean and had a professional atmosphere. Frankie was at the front desk, kindly greeted us, and we got the ball rolling. (I knew we were going to get along great once I saw his Naruto tattoos — his station was also fandom-ridden, so we felt right at home.) Frankie was honest with his recommendations regarding sizing and details and very fair with pricing. Shop minimum is $80 and there is a small surcharge if you use a credit card, so I recommend bringing cash. Working in a hospital, I appreciated Frankie’s attention to sterility and cleanliness before starting. He was meticulous about his stencil placement and also asked us both to judge the other’s alignment. It took less than ten minutes for each of us. There was a sensitive spot or two, but it didn’t hurt nearly as much as I expected it to. It also helped that we were having fun small talk. We were given verbal and printed after-care instructions and that was it! I’ve gotten compliments on the placement and line work since. Our tattoos barely turned red and the recovery has been very smooth. I had a great first experience and highly recommend Frankie and Skin Factory Tattoo & Body Piercing.

Samm has pierced me multiple times and she is always really friendly and quick with the piercing. She knew the answer to every question that I had and gave me a thorough after care talk and a printed out sheet that had her personal cell number so I could contact her with anything that I needed afterwards. My piercings have all healed well and I would definitely recommend her for your piercing!

Samm always does a great job. So far, she's done my septum, medusa, and nipple. Everything I've gotten from her has healed fast and seamlessly, and they're all straight as an arrow. Not to mention she's super calming and happy to be around. I've definitely found my piercer.

Las Vegas Tattoo ParlorsHow to choose the right Las Vegas Tattoo Shops

This is not a decision to be taken lightly because choosing the right Las Vegas Tattoo Shops does not have to be an arduous effort. In conclusion, there are a few key points for consideration when choosing your studio:

Most Noteworthy

  • Make sure it is clean, this is easy enough to see right away.
  • Talk to the artist that you are considering. It should be someone that you are comfortable enough with, as you need to be able to communicate with the artist about your designs
  • Check out their portfolios. This will give you an idea of what you can expect from the artist
  • You don’t want to pick the cheapest place. Finding a discount tattoo shop is not a good idea!
  • Do not go to someone who tattoos from his or her home! They may be able to give you a good deal but they will be putting you at risk.
  • Is the shop licensed? Yes, there are some studios that will set up shop without proper licensing.

Signs that you are at the Best Tattoo Shops in Las Vegas

  • The artist provides samples of previous work. Never select and artist who cannot produce some kind of portfolio. A photo album of tattoos done on actual people should be provided for you to look at in the studio.
  • The artist lives in a disposable universe. Needles should be opened in front of you and disposed of after use. Inks should be poured into individual cups before use and then discarded after use. The entire area should be sterile. Tattoo artists should have the cleanliness of a surgeon and the talent of a drawing master.

Furthermore

  • The artists wear sterile gloves. Freshly tattooed skin is susceptible to germs. For this reason, tattoo artists should always wear medical grade latex gloves.
  • The artist is trained and certified
  • You feel comfortable in the shop and with the artist. If all of the other things check out, be sure that you are comfortable in the environment. There are tattoo shops that do not consider the customer’s point of view or comfort. At Skin Factory Tattoo Shop, the artists strive to make sure that every customer feels respected. You should not have to be subjected to any kind of humiliation or sarcasm. You should never feel like your tattoo artist is doing you a favor.

How should I prepare for getting a tattoo?

Your tattoo appointment, be sure to arrive promptly. Be well rested, fed, and hydrated. Feel free to bring in a bottle of water with you. Do not take any blood thinning medications or drink alcohol. Dress comfortably and appropriately: wear something that will give easy access to the area that will be tattooed and something that you don’t mind getting a bit of ink on. Sometimes things can get a bit messy in the tattoo area. Before you start, you will fill out a release form and you will need your ID. Your artist will make a stencil of your design and then the two of you will decide on exactly where it should be placed and what size it should be. This is not the time to be shy or passive! as a result, if you want it bigger or smaller, now is the time to speak up.

Will it hurt?

Well of course, but how much it hurts really depends on the tattoo, the placement, and your own tolerance level. While everyone responds to tattoos differently. For some people, it can be quite painful; while for others, it is pure exhilaration! The term “hurts so good” is heard quite often. Probably the important thing to remember is, the pain is typically very minor and is only temporary. Usually, it is probably not as bad and you’d think.Tattoo Shops in Las Vegas

Can I bring a friend with me to a Skin Factory Las Vegas Tattoo Shop?

You can certainly bring a friend with you to your tattoo appointment. Therefore sometimes it will help to have a friend opposite to chat with (or go and grab a coffee for you!), especially if you will be there for a long time.

Questions to ask.

Getting a tattoo is a big decision. Because it a piece of artwork that you will carry with you for the rest of your life, but what you choose to get is likely a representation of something that is personally meaningful to you. Whether it is your first tattoo or you have gone under the needle before, most of all finding the right tattoo artist for the job is vital. Here are three questions to ask before hiring someone to tattoo you.

tattoo shops near meWhat are your qualifications?

Knowing how many years of experience, specialized training, or apprenticeships a tattoo artist has can help determined if he is qualified to work on your piece. Don’t be hesitant to ask for specifics regarding an artist’s skill level – if he is good at his profession, he will be eager to show you his qualifications. If you encounter someone who takes offense to the question or cannot offer specifics, take that as a warning sign.

Can I see your portfolio?

Tattoo artists know that their most important professional asset is their collected body of work. Most artists keep an album of tattoos. Viewing actual work will not only make it easy to assess skill level, but will also identify if the style of the tattoo artist will work for what you have in mind.

What are your equipment practices in the shop?

Tattooing involves the use of equipment that comes into direct contact with bodily fluids. Make sure that the tattoo artist can explain what measures are taken to sterilize the equipment. They should also be able to articulate proper disposal protocols when it comes to latex gloves, barrier film and gun sleeves. Basically, if the tattoo artist cannot confirm that everything that comes into contact with blood will not be sterilized or discarded, you run the risk of serious health hazards.

Things you need to know when you get your first tattoo

In recent years, getting a tattoo is like a right of passage for many teens and young adults. Tattoos are much less taboo than they were years ago, so people don’t mind walking around with art on their bodies. Which is great because tattoos are such a great way to express yourself.

Getting your first tattoo can be a little intimidating, so here are some things you need to know before getting your tattoo:

1. Choose a tattoo artist who suits you.

Don’t go to a tattoo artist because your friend did. Find a tattoo artist who creates art that you really enjoy. Maybe you like watercolor tattoos…find an artist who specializes in that type of tattoo. If you like traditional tattoos, find an artist who focuses on the traditional style. It doesn’t matter that a particular artist is really great, if they don’t do the type of tattoo you want, don’t go to them.

2. Don’t go to a cheap tattoo artist.

When looking at an artist’s tattoo portfolio, you can usually tell if they’re cheap or not. There’s an age-old saying that goes “Good tattoos aren’t cheap and cheap tattoos aren’t good” for a reason. If you get a cheap tattoo, chances are that you’ll spend more money in the future covering it up or getting laser removal. Just don’t do it.

3. Don’t rush into getting your first tattoo.

Tattoos are permanent, and chances are you won’t love your first tattoo a couple of years later. Don’t rush into getting your first tattoo just because your friends are. Take your time and think about the design you want. Tattoos don’t have to be meaningful, you just have to think they’re a good fit for you.

4. Listen to your artist.

They’re the professional for a reason. If they have any doubts about the design you want or the placement, listen to them! If you trust them enough to put their art on you, you should trust them enough to listen to their opinions. They know what they’re doing, and they want you to be as happy with the tattoo years down the road as you are the day you get it.

5. Yes, it will hurt.

There are needles pushing ink into your skin, why wouldn’t that hurt? There are many things to take into account when thinking about the pain of a tattoo: placement, size, whether it has shading or not, and so on. However, the pain is never unbearable. Look at all of the people with tattoos covering their arms; it clearly wasn’t that bad if they kept going back for more.

6. Tattoo Aftercare is extremely important.

After your tattoo is completed, your artist will give you a sheet of paper with aftercare instructions. Each shop may have a different idea about how you should heal your tattoo, but listen to your artist. If you have any questions call them, not your friend. They really don’t mind. Treat your tattoo well, and it will do the same for you.

7. Get out there and get your first tattoo.

Finding the right person to create your tattoo is important. These questions open the door to a conversation that will help you get a sense of who the person is as an artist and whether they have the background and skill set necessary to make your experience a positive one. If you’re looking to get a tattoo in the Las Vegas area, we can help. Contact us to speak with our artists!
