Read what others have said about their experience at Tattooed Heart Studios

"I am very fortunate to have found such a great place as Tattooed Heart Studios. My Sister-In-Law recommended me to Amy Nicholls, and it has been one of the best things I have done in a long time! Amy is so awesome, talented, and down to earth, I will be seeing her many many many more times! She has now done two custom pieces for me and they have been the most enjoyable sittings I have ever done (and I'm no stranger to a tattoo studio)! She is also working on my husbands artwork as well, and every time we go to see her, I am more blown away! I have sent many friends to see Amy and I will continue to do so! Beyond Amy's professionalism and all around talent, the shop itself gives off an amazing atmosphere! From the moment you walk in you can tell everyone that works here loves what they do! All in all, It's been a privilege becoming a shop regular, and I really appreciate the care that everyone has obviously put into making this shop rock!"

"I researched artists for 8 months before finally coming across John's portfolio, and I knew instantly that I'd found what I was looking for. I immediately set up a consultation and now, 4 months and 3 tattoo sessions later, I have a gorgeous, custom-drawn and beautifully applied half-sleeve as well as an amazing black and grey dot-work mandala on my back. The shop is bright, clean, and full of all of the artists' awesome personal artwork. The vibe and dynamic between the artists is super fun and they are clearly a cohesive team. Each artist has their own room decorated in their own style, so you're not on display while getting your work done, which I appreciated. I love the tattoos that I received from John, but I'd be lucky to have artwork done by any of the amazingly talented artists at this particular shop. As for the business side, everything was professional, prices were as expected and discussed up front, and all of my appointments started on time. I won't be going anywhere else."

"As good as it gets. Very clean shop, the tattoo artists rock. I got tattoo from Paul, he is a great guy and a very talented artist. My wife liked my tattoo so much she got hers in few weeks at the same shop. Price is what you would expect for a good tattoo shop. You can probably find something cheaper, but why would you risk it? Tattooed Heart Studios is the place to get your tattoo. I have an appointment next month to get my whole sleeve done."
Hollis B.
"This is a gem of a studio. I took my daughter for a piercing and we were helped by Dan. He was professional, personable, and very informative. The studio itself is attractive and super clean. Everyone we encountered was friendly and knowledgeable. No question went unanswered and my daughter's piercing looks fantastic. We would absolutely return."
"Awesome job. Took my rough sketch and made it perfect. Professional, Friendly. Tory did mine. Looking forward to going back and getting more pieces."
Larry M.
"This is by far the best tattoo shop that I have had the pleasure of dealing with; all of the artists are very professional and extremely friendly. I did a lot of research before selecting John Garancheski at Tattooed Heart Studios as the artist to complete my latest tattoo project. I was looking for a specific style of work, geometric tattoos, and based on previous pieces that I had seen of John's work I scheduled a consultation appointment with him. John was great to work with through the design process and gave me the confidence/assurance that I was looking for regarding his ability to do the piece. John completed an intricate geometric half sleeve tattoo for me that required three different sessions, which lasted approximately 4-6 hours each. I was able to see how the shop functioned over multiple sittings and was very impressed with how clean and well run it was while I was there. If you are looking for a very well managed tattoo studio that has a great atmosphere with friendly artists, then I would highly recommend checking out Tattooed Heart Studios in Glen Burnie, MD."
