My experience with Jelly and The Surly Skull Tattoo Studio began in 2016 when I finally decided to get my first tattoo. I set up a consultation with Jelly so we could discuss ideas, placement and design. In my first meeting with her, Jelly was so personable and kind to me. By the end of the meeting, she seemed just as excited as I was to get the piece done! I feel like the tattoo industry is filled with a lot of great people, but there are also those who see it as a means to an end and a way to make money. Jelly isnt like that at all. She cares so much that her clients get exactly the tattoo that they want, and its so important to her that they leave her studio happy with the end result of her hard work. And let me tell you from experience, you will always leave happy with her work. Since that first tattoo with Jelly, Ive gone on to get three more pieces from her that I truly love, and plan to have much more done in the near future. Not only that, but Jelly has also tattooed several pieces for every member of my family, and weve all left amazed at her incredible talent and are often stopped by strangers so they can marvel at her artistry. I cant tell you how many of her business cards Ive handed out after singing her praises! Another important factor I want to discuss is the professionalism of this establishment. Ive never seen a tattoo artist or studio care so much about cleanliness and the health and safety of their clients. Jelly takes such good care of you, and you always know youre in good hands when you come to the Surly Skull. She arms you with the proper information to take care of your new tattoo afterward, too. Ive been to several studios with friends and relatives in the past who will just send you on your way after theyve been paid. Jelly isnt like that at all. She makes sure you know the proper precautions and methods to take care of your tattoo in order to keep it clean and looking good in the future. I couldnt possibly recommend Jelly and this studio more. This studio is a breath of fresh air in this industry. Comfortable, clean, client-focused, creative and considerate. If youre thinking about getting a tattoo, you have to stop by The Surly Skull Tattoo Studio, because as a client, its the best possible experience you could have. Youll end up getting incredible work you love from a talented artist who truly cares.
