Best First Tattoo EVER! - Edit

I fell in love with this shop. While I was looking for a place to get my first tattoo I discovered that not all inks and soaps used in the process are vegan. I contacted a different shop that brands itself as "L.A.s only vegan tattoo shop" (which turns out to not be true) and was bullied by the artists. This lead me to find a different artist who was willing to work with me to create the image I wanted. John Saletra at the Tattoo Lounge in Venice also uses vegan friendly tattoo products. Not only was he willing to work with the design I brought in, he was excited to do so. John was excellent about explaining everything to me and making sure I was comfortable with the entire process. I will be using him for all future work. I could not be happier.

Amazing tattoo, great guy, vegan ink - Edit

My wife has been planning her first tattoo for quite a while. She knew exactly what she wanted. We first called a tattoo shop the advertised itself as all-vegan, and the results were less-than-ideal. Lots of ego, lots of telling her what she wanted, and so forth. Pretty negative all around. Then a friend of ours with amazing tattoos suggested we talk to John Saletra at Tattoo Lounge. Our friend trusted him with a huge percentage of his body, so we gave it a shot.

The difference was night and day. John got it immediately, and he also offered to take the time to investigate how all of his ink's components were sourced to verify that they were, in fact, free of animal-based glycerin and other products. And the tattoo was fantastic. I'll leave that part to my wife, who will be reviewing the shop shortly.

Nothing bad to say. John's a rock star.

Pros: Vegan ink, Fast and solid, Creative, but gives you what YOU want

Cons: None.
