Scott is the Best! It's not like I'm covered in ink. Prior to going to wild Bill's I had only one small tat from over a decade ago. Having said that, the tattoo parlor I was searching for needed to be nothing short of spectacular as the design I was getting was to celebrate an anniversary and I was making a decision for me and my husband. I didn't want just an average tattoo parlor, I wanted a place that felt like "an experience". Hey, you only live once right? Then I had an e-mail exchange with Bill and told him the style we were after, he guided me to Scott. I exchanged e-mails with Bill a few times and he answered all of my questions/concerns promptly. So come the big day I entered the place that's outfitted really nice. Not just "Like any tattoo shop". Scott's demeanor was professional and calming. The proof of his talent is in the pudding as my tat turned out BEAUTIFUL. Clean lines, just awesome. My experience when I went back for fill in work, again, was great even thou the place was super busy (it was the weekend). And that's when my husband went in for his ink (same tat). He liked Scott's demeanor as well. And said he loved the tattoo he did. Needless to say, I can't recommend Scott and the Wild Bill's team enough.

I just wanted to write this review while the ink is still quite fresh. My new tattoo is awesome I want to slap someone! I followed Tyson (from another shop) over to Wild Bill's, and as usual the work he did on me is superbly awesome! The folks there are funny as heck and I had a great time. It was a really busy Friday night. I could see that Bill was doing his best to keep everything sane and running smooth. He's a big guy, tattooed from neck to ankles and won't put up with bull, I know, after watching him tell a couple of yahoos to split that were messing around. The quality of work I witnessed while laid out on the table was extremely high. The artists seem to really enjoy their work and at looking at each other's art. Its good to know that great artists there are always learning from each other. They don't want just to do tattoos off the wall, they want to draw something different you'll really dig. So if you want an amazing custom tattoo, look nowhere else than Wild Bills!

So I got another tattoo. I liked the work Myke had in his book. We talked for a while an found the design I was looking for on the computer and viola, after a half hour of redrawing it I'm sitting in the chair, putting myself through this mess once again. After being there a couple of hours I could see the artists there are nothing if not professional they seem to really care about what your getting and why. I Love the tattoo Myke did. Now I'm starting to think of going back for more.

I have to admit, I did not do any research on tattoo artists for my latest piece. The reason being, it was a lotus on my wrist that would be less than two inches wide. I figured that pretty much anyone could do it. Since I drive by Wild Bill's all the time and I hear they have some great artist, I figured I'd stop in and see if they had a drop in available as I figured it would take about 50 minutes to get what I wanted. They are by appointment. So I'm lucky Kim had some time and she fit me in. She worked with me to figure out the exact design I wanted, I went and grabbed some food down stairs to kick up the sugar levels and she went to work as soon as I came back. All in all it took under an hour, I'm so thrilled with the results. She put so much detail into it. I know its not some great big back piece but it is five star worthy (It looks that good) I now have a new tattoo artist. Can't wait for her to re-do my lower back piece! Bill was working the front desk and he was really nice and fun to talk to while I waited. This is the best tattoo parlor I've ever been in and that goes a long way for me. So if you have to wait for them to give good service to some one else, just know that you'll get the same when it's your turn. Thanks Kim. It doesn't get any better than this

I've had 2 tatoos done there. The first one, I don't remember the guys name -- the 2nd one was done by Jose and it came out good after I came back for some filling in. I also had my belly button repearced there.
