Guns N' Needles Tattoo

For surgical sterilization, masterful precision, and creative minds who care just enough to gently break the news that the design you had in mind may not be that cool in hindsight, see Guns N' Needles in Uptown. It's a referral-driven studio with a loyal customer base that believes the guys and lady perched on the foot pedal can do no wrong, and a penchant for relaxing curious new faces with offerings of free water and candy. The space is neat and comfortable, the artists professional listeners. Negative experiences are basically unheard of.
