They will get my money from here on out! Excellent Work, Awesome Customer Service & they were Very Knowledgable! I was trying to get a cover up for almost 3 months, and Johnny came through in a clutch after about 10 other places gave me the run around. His skill level, costumer service and patience was everything!
Erik does some of the best American traditional work I have ever seen! American classic’s staff is always welcoming and very knowledgeable and the shop is clean and inviting. There is an artist that can do any style of tattoo you walk in there wanting and I have loved everything I have gotten done so far!
Best place in the 757 area to get a tattoo, artists are very helpful and very skilled, I recommend this place
American Classic Tattoo is an outstanding shop with extremely talented artists. My first tattoo was done by Eli and I couldn’t have been more impressed by the kindness and professionalism shown the entire process. They listened to a simple concept idea I had and made it into a beautiful tattoo, along with being personable throughout the session. All of the artists are experienced and helpful. A very clean and professional shop that puts their work at the focus. Absolutely love this shop and would recommend to everyone.
Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, Punctuality, Quality, Value Walked in with a couple different interests, settled on one, met up with an artist who gave me exactly what I was looking for - all within the same day and a very reasonable time. 10/10 would recommend and come back again.
American Classic is a very professional and clean shop. Mike Solomon does great work. I walked in there with just a basic idea of a raven and he took my idea to the next level and made it 10 times better, he is a true artist. I will definitely be back for more work.
Not only was the work amazing (thank you Erik & Lucy) they were also super flexible. My fiancé and I were both getting tattoos (one custom) and had to reschedule a couple times and they were super kind about it and willing to work around our schedule! The environment is inviting and I was super comfortable the whole time! Definitely will be coming to them for future tats!!
