WE TATTOO MEN
We are busy, and we know that you are too--so we want to make this process as easy and convenient for you as possible! A good 50% of the people that ask about pricing and questions about tattoos never actually follow through with getting them done, which is totally fine--a tattoo is a big commitment to make, and sometimes has a hefty investment. However, most questions can be answered generally and most estimates can be given to save me some time in a busy work day and to save you a trip to the shop and some hours out of your life.
Is one of the number one reasons you haven’t gotten your dream tattoo because of the pain? Pretty in ink offers the ideal client experience with our medical grade topical numbing cream. Learn more about one of most popular upgrades—our advanced numbing mixture that can leave you smiling for hours during and after your tattoo
Already planning ahead on how to take care of your new masterpiece? You should be--don't waste all this time and money without taking the measure to protect your new tattoo so it lasts a lifetime! Your skin is your largest organ, and any product you put on it is absorbed into your body. Personally, i don't put anything on it that i wouldn't put in my mouth. Natural is the way to go! We created a unique hand made mixture of mango, Shea, and cocoa butters (for breathable moisture), grape seed, jojoba and emu oil (for skin rejuvenation), and frankincense and lavender (for calming effects). It is $25 and comes along with the recommended anti bacterial/unscented hand soap for your convenience.
Beyond receiving a tattoo customized just for you, our clients keep raving about their amazing experience before, during and after their appointment. We are a boutique tattoo shop, which means each experience is tailored specifically to our client. You are usually the only one there, so you don’t have to worry about being exposed. There is amazing music and ambiance along with scented candles and essential oils for relaxation. Far beyond our calming aesthetics and girly decor lies amazing conversation and a personalized experience you will never forget.
KEEP IT FRESH
I'd been following her work and several other local artists for the last year debating on which to use for the start of my sleeve, as well as a piece for my husband. Jackie is not only talented but her custom service is by far the best in the area, which to me is extremely important. I filled out the inquiry properly as instructed on her site with my detailed vision. I immediately got a response requesting my photos and within the hour we had finalized my consultation for the first piece of my sleeve and my husbands custom piece. I booked my appointment for the next week and his for the following week, which mine was the day before her wedding and his was the day after her honeymoon (speaking of she still communicated and finished his sketch while on her honeymoon). Customer service at its finest!!!
My appointment was awesome, on time, super personable like having one of my closest friends tattooing me (I actually told my husband I want her as my new friend lol). I used the numbing service for my vintage portrait of my grandmother and I'll never get a tattoo without it, those 4 hours flew by with no pain. My husbands appointment was the same he was so impressed with Jackie's skill level, her friendliness yet still very business minded. He spent 5 hours in her chair getting his custom black panther piece, which he LOVES! We both are so in love with our pieces and can't wait for Jackie to do our next pieces.
Thank you so much Jackie!!! You're honestly one of a kind.
I had the pleasure of having two tattoos done at Pretty in Ink. Each experience was absolutely phenomenal and I highly recommend (short version, now on to the long version lol).
The first tattoo was through Nicole and I will continue to book my tattoos through her because the way she made me felt throughout the whole experience surpasses any other tattoo experience that I’ve had at other shops. Even though I’ve gotten tattooed before, I always have really bad anxiety. But this day my anxiety was so bad I started crying (embarrassing, I know). She was so patient with me and made sure I was good throughout the whole thing. She talked to me throughout the process which made time go by so much faster and it honestly felt like a much needed therapy session because she was so relatable and I was able to talk about so much. Her line work is so and I really enjoy my piece! So I got a two in one this day—-a bomb tattoo and a therapy session. You can tell she cares so much about her clients and is passionate about what she does. It shines through her work.
The second time was a walk-in tattoo for their Black Friday special. I brought two of my cousins and Tae was our artist. She was so personable and was patient with us. Her work is amazing, lines clean and we all enjoyed our tattoo. We appreciate her fitting us in between appointments and being so nice about it. My cousins already said they are going to book you next time they are in Maryland!
Overall, the experience can’t be beat. The shop is clean and they even go the extra mile to show you that the needle they use on you is unopened and fresh every time which I appreciate. Definitely good vibes and energy from all the ladies at the shop. If you are thinking about booking with them, don’t think just book. The virtual booking experience is great and convenient, taking the hassle away. Nicole got back to me quickly after my inquiry. I can’t say enough good things about Pretty in Ink. Thank you for making my trips special and memorable 💜
