Well the artwork on display was ok but was seriously considering looking into getting a tattoo and well the spot isn't that clean. Was disappointed.

I am a photography student and a tattoo enthusiast. Everything about this destination was graphically appealing, the exhibits and tattoo history inspired me to get a tattoo myself. The work that Chris did for my subject was outstanding. The staff was all very professional and very friendly. Great place.

This place is awesome!! Stop by for a new tattoo from one of the many talented artists or just look around, either way you'll have a great time!

Not really a museum like you think. It's really just a large tattoo shop that has a few newspaper articles on the wall. Other than that, its a shop with a bunch of flash art on the walls. The guys working there were friendly and social.

My mom and I were here over 10 years ago. We were in Baltimore for other reasons and decided to visit since we both have tattoos. I enjoyed the "museum" part, just containing old equipment! We both got matching tats before we left, and I would have to say... the ink has still not faded and I have had no... More

This was a waste of time to drive out there expecting a museum quality Tattoo Museum to find a tattoo parlor with just a few articles and pictures on the wall. They need to take this place OFF THE MAP as a landmark for tourists to visit!! We were on vacation and all five of us together probably have over... More

This place isn't terribly for quality, etc. but it's certainly not the best. A nose ring that we tried to get here was 50 dollars, I believe, where elsewhere the same thing was 20 or 30. Sure, go once to see the tiny "museum" part, but other than that, this place is just a lot of hype. Try Read Street... More

I have had two friends get tattoos done here and they did a really great job and everyone was super friendly! Also the museum kept me busy while they were getting their ink done

It has taken me a while to write this review but I am reminded every time I look in the mirror how upset I was with my experience there. During the Christmas season of 2007 my little brother was visiting from Belgium and I had recently returned from Florida for school. We were both Active Duty military and tattoo fans.... More

I've been in many, many tattoo shops. Some more gracious then others - but the general vibe in most shops is...they just don't give a [--]. If you want some ink - get over yourself and understand that. Find the right ARTIST regardless of what shop he/she is currently working at. I've seen Chris Keatons work - AWESOME (calling today...
