Quoted one price, then when my friend who gave me a ride there drove away, the price jumped up $100.00. I was lucky they didn't get far. I found this to be very unprofessional, and felt like I was being gouged... no pun intended. Subsequently, I've gotten my tattoo at another very well known parlor (they seem to be the biggest around) who did a great job, for the price that Poda originally quoted me, and were not surprised when I told them about my experience.
ROSCO IS THE BEST!.
I had a great experience for my first tattoo. Rosco made me feel comfortable and no pressure what so ever. He customized the tattoo I wanted and made suggestions, but was not offended if I decided to change his suggestion slightly. They say tattoos are addictive, I didn't believe it until I got my first one. I am already thinking of adding on to it and other ones I might want. I live 900 miles away from this shop, but will not get another tattoo until I am back in town. I highly recommend PODA Tattoo and Rosco.
