FAVORITE TATTOO PLACE EVER! – I decided I really wanted to get a tattoo and found this place online - called the night I wanted to get it and he took me right in for a tattoo! Jay was very down to earth and funny and so relaxed. He did have people there but it did not bother me what so ever - most tattoo places are full of people and thats just his type of atmosphere - I enjoyed the music - everything in there that was used was brand new and very sterile and his work is amazing - I went back and got two more tattoos from him and also a nose piercing :) I am very pleased with his work and wouldnt go to any other place!!! Love all of my tattoos and deffinatly love the artist!
14 Tattoos and more to come... – I've had 14 tattoos done by Chromatic Tattoo and each one came out just as i wanted them. I always get great compliments on them and tell people this is the place to go if they want really nicely detailed tattoos. I refuse to go anywhere else.
Best Experience...So happy with how tatt came out!! – I went to Chromatic because it was highly recommended from some of the people I knew in the area and from my experience, I will recommend to any and everyone looking to get a new tatt. This was not my first tatt and from now on, Chromatic will be the only place that I will visit. The artist took the idea that I explained, drew it and then made sure it was positioned perfectly! This is the largest tatt I have and the best!! The artist was very friendly, the shop was very clean and I am so very happy with my overall experience!! Thank you!!!
Not even if were the last shop in business – I've never written one of these things but I need to warn other woman. I LOVE body art of all forms so when my bf invited me to go with her for a tattoo I jumped at the chance to check out a new shop. All she wanted was a butterfly... how hard is that? The guy working at the shop was disgusting. He kept wiping his nose with his sleeve/back of his hand which grossed me out cause it’s supposed to be super clean. He seemed highly intoxicated... the group of people hanging in the back definitely were. I asked to use the bathroom and I felt like everyone in the back scattered as soon as I walked back, like they were hiding something. There was a guy with bug eyes that was drooling over us and made us feel SOOOO uncomfortable. My standards aren't through the roof but I expect clean, polite, and professional. This place was none of those!!! The guy at the shop would not do the butterfly exactly as she wanted it and when it was finally done she was pissed the placement wasn't where she asked it to be. The butterfly itself is alright, def not what she wanted. Shouldn't the tattoo shape, size, and placement be up to the person whose body it will be on FOREVER? Also, she is going to get tested cause the whole experience seemed skeevy. Safe yourself peace of mind. Stay away.
Awesome and quick, perfect for a quickie! (no pun intended) – I had such a great experience. Woke up one morning and really wanted my industrial done. Googled 'piercing in burlington' and Chromatic popped up. I called, spoke to Jason and he told me to come in at 6. When I arrived he was listening to Jack Johnson (my favorite). He was really cool and made me feel really comfortable. Everything was very clean and he made everything really easy. I was out in about 20-30 minutes. I plan on going in later today for something else!
Best Places Ever – my friends and I wanted to get a few piercings and tattoos. We first went to Jason, and knew we would come back a few times. it was a great time! he is very helpful and professional at what he does. All the needles and equipment are sterile!
Altogether we have about 10 tattoos and 8 piercings from him, none of which has gotten infected or turned out bad. He is the best!
I would recommend Chromatic tattoo to EVERYONE!!
oh and, just by the way, one of us got a mirror image tattoo, that Jason did and it is so cool!
worst experience by far – I had two positive experiences and one horribly bad one that assures I will NEVER go back to chromatic.
I called for an appointment, told Jason exactly what I wanted, and showed up for my appointment. He was smoking a cigarette inside when I arrived, and stood in the doorway to finish his cigarette while looking at the picture of what I wanted done. While he finished his cigarette I walked back to the bathroom... there were empty beer cans all over the floor as well as a 6 pack of empty glass bottles. There was a trash can with ice and full beers in it too.
He told me I couldnt get it written in mirror image, because it would be too hard for him to do and no one else would be able to read it. He said he couldnt see the picture of the flower I had, and could draw two petals if thats all i wanted.
At that point I got my picture back and left. Like I said before, I have two other tattoos from Chromatic and love them, but my guess is that he was too drunk to tattoo me anyways. I will NEVER go back to Chromatic!!
I went to STINGRAY in Allston, and they were awesome, did exactly what I wanted, and were as professional as can be.
