I recently got my first tattoo from Gary Yoxen at Memorial Tattoo and couldn't be happier. I can't say enough about how pleased I am with his skills with shading, attention to detail, and overall talent in general. I selected this shop primarily because of the reviews I read beforehand online. Aside from obviously wanting a great looking tattoo from a talented artist, my highest priority was finding both a clean shop and an artist who were friendly, inviting, patient, and willing to answer my questions and and address my concerns. Memorial Tattoo did all of these things and more. Look no further if you're in the market for new ink. You won't be disappointed.

I did my research and found the general consensus to be that this is the place in Atlanta to be tattooed. I call before hand and was told that anytime would be a good time for a consultation. So I dropped by on my day off to look around. Everyone there was super friendly. I was greeted at the door and was directed to the portfolios to check out the different artist's work. I was completely impressed with the range of talent. I asked several questions and the manager, Leigh, pointed me in the direction of Gary Yoxen. He talked to me about my ideas and made an appointment to tattoo me the following week. The tattoo session went better than I could have expected. The owl I got is amazing and took way less time than I had anticipated. It's big and did take almost 3 hours. But it is beautiful and worth every second under the needle. Gary is great and his work impressed me very much. I have received tons of complements on my new ink. Even my grandmother loves it. This shop is the best of the best.
