I'm plannin in getting my big tattoo there again and very happy with the outcome. You guys rock love it and you'll be seeing me soon in the future thanks a bunch :D
Really great spot for piercings.
When I turned 18 I wanted to get an industrial piercing. I did some internet sleuthing for a shop close to me, and ended up in a tattoo shop that recommended I check out Fluid. It was a great idea.
Scot met with me and told me that the piercing I wanted would be impossible for my ear, by proceeded to give me 10 other ones he could do. I ended up getting one of them and left with ideas for three more. Six piercings later, I'm still going there and I don't regret it. Scot is nice, funny, professional, very concerned with hygiene, and explains everything that's happening every step of the way.
Amazing artists, cool people!.
This shop is amazing I went and checked out a bunch in the Saint Paul area and this is the one that looked the cleanest and was the most comfortable! They have screens if you want more privacy, unlike most of the others I visited. Everyone I met that worked there is super nice!
Lolo did my tattoo for me and its my 1st so needless to say I was extremely nervous! Especially since its a giant dragon that takes up half of my back! He explained and answered all my questions even while tattooing and was perfectly fine with my friend, mom, and boyfriend being there to distract me and even had fun chatting while he was working! He drew out the piece for me and really listened to everything I wanted and we just seemed 100% on the same track from the beginning!
Needless to say everyone I know I have recommended to at least check out the shop! My boyfriend will hopefully be getting his 3rd tattoo from an artist there in the coming months!
Amazing for my 1st time experience! Way better then what I thought it could ever be!
You've got to be kidding me!. Ugh, icky. This place, besides being in a scary neighborhood, is full of a bunch of scary people, or "artists," as they call themselves. Chad did a drawing for me which literally, looked like it was drawn by a child, it was done with pastels, ( maybe?) I wanted a black and grey image. A complete and utter fail and bad judgement call on my part. I was initially attracted to the decor of the shop, but inside it is really dark. The bathroom was painted by someone who doesn't even work there anymore, (I aksed), too much testosterone, I wanted a tattoo, not a new boyfriend. Gross.
GREAT TATTOOS AND ARTISTS. I have 3 tattoos all of which I got at Fluid Ink. Benny is my artist. He does a great job. He takes his time, draws what you want done, and is very nice guy. I will only let him tattoo me. Everyother Tattoo shop I have been to, makes me feel uncomfortable. This is definitely a chill place that is very fun and professional.
Awesome tattoo shop!. I just got a tattoo at Fluid Ink and I highly recommend this place. It was a great experience overall and I'm so glad I went to Fluid Ink rather than settling for any old tattoo place! I walked in and was greeted by Scot who was very friendly and answered my questions. After deciding on the tattoo I wanted, Chad answered any other questions I had and was very friendly and personable. He helped to pick an artist that would be best for the tattoo I wanted. I had never been there before so his help in answering my questions was really appreciated. LoLo did my tattoo and did an amazing job! I love it! He was nice, funny, and put me at ease through the whole process. Overall, I highly recommend this tattoo shop. The price wasn't outrageous like some places try to charge and the atmosphere of the shop is very friendly, welcoming, laid-back yet professional, and very clean. I will absolutely be going back there for any further tattoos or piercings I get in the future!
Chill shop with gr8 artists. fluid ink is a really great shop with awsome artists. Ive been to alot of tatu shops with snobby stuck up greedy artists who act like their gods gift to the earth. FLUID INK IS NOT THAT TYPE OF SHOP! finnally a shop with talent and great attitudes. benny being my artist of choice can put up with my pickyness for desighn and redrew a tatu for me for an hour understanding that tatus are a lifetime comittiment and wasnt acting like it was a hassle to help me out. everyone there treats their jobs with respect and thats rare to find. the tatus are well priced and good quality. Also for the lngst time i said id nvr change my piercing shop from saint sab- but after meeting scott and seeing how cool and fun and very talented he was i changed my tune and felt really comfortable going there!!! love the shop and should b stopping in soon again!
My first experience at Fluid Ink was with Sara. I was looking for my first-ever tattoo, and very excited. As tattoos are permanent I was sure to check around first. I went to a number of different shops (Xoel at Grand Tattoo, St. Sabrina's, Steady, etc) before I chose an artist. In the end, I liked Sara's sketch best, but I did not like Sara. I looked around some more to see if I could find someone that I liked both as an artist and as a person. I didn't have much luck, so I went back to Sarah.
For a while my tattoo looked great. The details were phenominal and I was incredibly pleased. I went back to get it colored. I asked for a wash, but what I ended up with was a full color (Sara was very stubborn). Soon the details began to fade, no matter how careful I was in the sun, etc.
I soon found myself wanting another tattoo, and migrated back to Fluid Ink. I found that I really liked the rest of the staff, so I'd give them another try. As it turns out, Sara no longer works there. The owner of the shop, however, asked to see the tattoo Sara did for me. He agreed about the details and how they were disappearing, and offered to redo the entire thing (both color, outline, and shading) for free! I was shocked, but he claimed that he wanted to uphold the integrity of the shop - even if the artist was gone.
Needless to say, my skin is Fluid Ink's forever. Any shop that will honor the tattoo without the artist is a place I'm willing to revisit.
Excellent art work!. I went in with absolutely no idea what I was looking for (tat-virgin). The guys were all friendly and helpful, and they really put me at ease. Benny did a great job, and it's healing like it should. I'm already thinking about what my next tat will be...
Great Place to get inked! :P. I had an angle tattoo put on my back in rememberance for my mom as a 30th birthday present to myself, about three years ago. When I went in to talk to someone about what I wanted (I had a picture) the guy I talked to recommended Sarah, and so I met with her and she was great! It took about four, maybe five sessions for a total of about 15 hours and it was so worth it. I love it, it is beautiful and love showing it to people, and even people who have commented that they hate tattoos have said they really like mine. Sarah did a great job, she was very professional and easy to work with - she even gave me some candy so I wouldn't pass out - so I recommend eating a full meal and being well hydrated if you are going to be sitting there for a couple of hours. I thought that getting that big tattoo would "cure" me of wanting more (I have two others) but I think it is an addiction, and I find myself wanting more. The only draw back is that you can't donate at the Red Cross for a year if you have a tattoo done in MN, since they aren't regulated. :(
