I'm never disappointed when I come here! Just got an amazing touch up done by Karlos and can't wait to go back to him to finish my piece. Friendly staff and welcoming studio. <3
I've never had a "go-to" place or person for tattoos and piercings but I do now! Karlos was great to work with and went above and beyond my expectations. I'm super happy with my tattoo (he did an awesome galaxy background and touched up this moon tattoo I have). I bought a few new nose studs when checking out and the lady (I didn't get her name) was super helpful and even put them in for me, since I didn't have experience with that kind. The building is really nice and I like that there are separate rooms. Great atmosphere and service. I will definitely be back.
Very happy with the atmosphere of Chroma Tattoo. Chroma is very clean and friendly. Karlos did an amazing job and was very talented in taking what I wanted and turning it into a piece of art.
Would recommend anyone to go here to get any tattoos done (and piercings) I've personally have been going to Karlos for a couple of years now working on a sleeve, but recommend any of the artists there. The owner and other members are all outgoing and friendly. It really makes someone whose anxious be able to relax. Very calm environment and if you're anything like me and ask a million questions everyone there is patience and will answer them all.
Such a great place. Very professional and accommodating. Karlos is an amazing artist and a genuinely good person. 👍🏾👍🏾
Karlos is the best! He took my ideas and the pictures that I provided and made an absolutely gorgeous piece out of it, which was sketched up on a tablet and emailed to me prior to the appointment. This was very reassuring and I appreciated that he really put some time and consideration into my tattoo. I felt totally comfortable during the ~4 hour session, he was very chill and polite, and the result was good. The touch up (free!!) was even better than I could have imagined. All of my interactions at the front desk and over the phone were also very pleasant. Highly recommend!
I could not of been happier with my experience working with Karlos! He was attentive and patient. My tattoo was exactly as I imagined it would be! I didnt notice the detail and amazing color until I got home and was able to take a closer look in the mirror. I will be back in the future just to see Karlos alone. Friendly staff. Clean building. Thank you Chroma tattoo for having an amazing staff!
Chroma was awesome from planning my tatoo throught the after care questions. Carlos is my artist and he is an absolutely beautiful artist! The office was warm and clean and inviting. The studio area for after pics is a cool touch. I cannot recommend Chroma and Carlos highlu enough!
I have been working with Karlos on a custom memorial piece for four months now. When I went in for the consultation he listened to all of my ideas and even took the time when designing it to put a few of his own ideas to help make it flow. This piece has been coming along better then I could have ever expected. The sessions are long and sometimes painful but he always takes the time to make sure I'm comfortable and stops occasionally to see if I need anything. I can't imagine going to another artist or another tattoo shop for this piece everyone there makes you feel welcome.
Karlos does phenomenal work! I will definitely be going back to him for all of my future pieces when I'm in the area!
Karlos was great! He worked with the images I came in with and created the perfect tattoo. The tattoo experience was fun and the outcome was beautiful. I will go back to him for future work and recommend for those who like his style. Thanks!
Karlos did a fantastic job doing my tattoo. He was quick, and the atmosphere was comfortable. I'm definitely going back for more
I cannot even describe how happy I am with my first tattoo. Karlos made it a very enjoyable experience even after I came in beyond anxious.
I recently just went into get a tattoo on Wednesday from Karlos. I was recommended by a friend to go here and I was not disappointed. In fact the artist helped me design and tattooed the piece on me was beyond awesome. He's really friendly and he did a fantastic job on my tattoo! I didn't think it would come out that great at first just because I wasn't sure how I exactly wanted it to be, but he was very helpful by drawing out what I wanted. The two workers I associated with (Karlos and a woman, who I was sure was the owner, who was working at the front desk) were super kind and actually felt like they cared instead of trying to rush you out and get their next appointment in. I highly recommend any of the artist here, out of all the different places I've been to, this is my favorite by far.
This was my second tattoo at Chroma. Both were very good experiences. This time both of my daughters got their first tattoo. Karlos did all three and even though our tattoos were relatively simple compared to most; he still made the experience fun and memorable. We are all very happy with our tattoos and would highly recommend Karlos and Chroma to all!
I went into Chroma Tattoo looking for Karlos, I had seen his work a couple years ago and loved it. After an amazing consultation and reasonable deposit to hold the appointment, I was all set. Karlos completely understood what I wanted and had even whipped up a thumbnail while I was there, making me feel like he and I was on the same page, which is very comforting. I've gotten plenty of tattoos and his professionalism was fantastic; in fact, the entire staff was very professional and helpful in getting me in on such short notice. The day of the tattoo we went into the back couch area where there were refreshments, snacks, tv, and games, which felt very homey. Karlos made any changes I asked for and reapplied it over and over to make sure it was exactly how I wanted it and looked as nice as it could. His tattooing was gentle and he was incredibly kind and understanding-offering breaks and checking up on me. Honestly, it was a great time. Interesting conversation, cool guy and I came out of it with a phenomenal tattoo. I highly recommend Chroma Tattoo.
Impeccably clean place, great music (very important while getting inked), super friendly group and their work speaks for itself. Karlos is the man!
I came to Chroma Tattoo to see Karlos mainly off of a recommendation from a very dear friend of mine who also gets work done by him.
No matter how many questions or concerns I had, everyone I talked to was more than welcoming. No matter how anxious I was, everyone was very understanding.
At the consultation I had only a few ideas/concepts of what I wanted but through talking it out with Karlos along with a few suggestions from him, we worked out a main concept and a direction.
When I saw the design before getting the tattoo I was absolutely amazed. I loved everything about it, and it was also everything I never knew I wanted. Getting the actual tattoo was a great experience. Both seeing the design and getting the tattoo took all the anxiety away. Karlos is not only an awesome artist, but an awesome person and wonderful to talk to. I had an absolute blast. Before I knew it, time had passed and the tattoo was finished. It looked/looks incredible. I didn't know how to put it into words when I saw it done for the first time.
I will most definitely be back as I already am starting to want more.
My first time at Chroma and I could not be more impressed! The staff was all so kind, and space was so clean and super welcoming for anyone receiving a tattoo or piercing and things to do for any guests you had with you.
Karlos was a fantastic artist! It had been several years since my last tattoo so I had some anxiety beforehand. He was such a good guide to welcome me back to tattooing, checked in with me a lot, and made sure I was doing fine throughout. From there, this man has talented hands! I wouldn't trust anyone else with the work I had done, it's such a special piece and he killed it!!!
Thank you Karlos and Chroma team for an amazing, fun-filled, wonderful day!
Thank you very much!
Everything was so great at Chroma. Karlos was fantastic to work with. He took my idea and created the perfect tattoo. He brought my vision to life and I love the result! He was also very accommodating when I brought in an idea at the last minute to finish a tattoo I had done somewhere else. He agreed to do it at the same appointment. I will be back! Thanks Karlos!!!
Chroma is by far the best shop around. They are very friendly and professional. Karlos did an amazing job on a sleeve touch up that I was concerned with. The end result was exactly what I was hoping for. He really takes time and cares. I'm so glad I found a new artist and can't wait to have more work done by him. Definitely recommend!!!
I came into Chroma to see Karlos with about 100 half ideas and no idea how to put them together. I wanted a memorial tattoo for my dad and all the things that reminded me of him. The design Karlos put together made me feel like he had known me and my dad for our entire lives. Everything was perfect. It was such an emotional expirence, I felt completely comfortable and confident in Karlos to make it perfect. The tattoo is beautiful and every time I look at it, I tear up because it's just so perfect! I'll definitely be back to see Karlos!
I had a sleeve done by Karlos in May of 2016 and it is absolutely amazing. He has such a gentle touch in his work and he is so calming to be around. The 6.5 hours flew by and I couldn't be happier with the results. When I explained the concept to him, he had a few great recommendations, including modifying the design based on how it would look in motion (I'm a dancer, so it's relevant). As long as I live within driving distance, I won't get a tattoo from anybody else.
I had a fantastic experience getting tattooed at Chroma! The shop is clean and beautifully decorated with walls full of art. Karlos, my tattooer, is incredibly talented. He made the time pass pretty quickly and the discomfort was minimal. Definitely my best tattooing experience to date! I plan to go back and I'll be recommending Chroma to others as well.
Karlos did my tattoo and it is amazing. Definitely would recommend him and will definitely be coming back here for future tattoos. The shop is very clean and nicely decorated. The room had a tv so I could watch Netflix. Great experience.
best tattoo experience i've ever had. Karlos was awesome and gave me an amazing tattoo and the rest of the staff was equally friendly and professional. this place is great i will definitely be back for more work thanks guys!
I had my 4th tattoo (3rd at Chroma) done by Karlos on Thursday and couldn't be happier. I followed Karlos there when he moved from another shop and love Chroma! The atmosphere is great, everybody is friendly and welcoming and love that my wife and daughter can hang out for a bit and be comfortable and enjoy themselves. I've recommend Chroma to a ton of friends and a few have been tattooed by Karlos and been extremely happy also. Can't wait to come back for my next one!
Karlos was my artist, and he was very professional and extremely kind to me.
It was my first tattoo, and I couldn't be happier with the results. He helped me get through it and made it a very fun experience. Will definitely be going back in the future :)
Edit: also wanted to add that I had a question about the care of my tattoo, and Karlos responded immediately to my problem.
Always nice to know that the people in this business care about their clients and want to make sure their tattoos heal properly.
Karlos designed my tattoo perfectly! He did exactly what I wanted, was very precise and an awesome artist to have. All the staff is extremely nice and accomidating. I recommend chroma tattoo and especially Karlos to anyone looking to get ink!
My mom got her memorial tattoo piece done by Karlos and I sat in on her tattooing session. My eyes were drawn to the many tattoo designs on Karlos' walls. One in particular was this severed wolf head with the quote "Never Again" underneath. Like love at first type kind of stuff. Two months go by I see Facebook post about Karlos, contacted the store asking about the wolf head tattoo. I knew exactly where I wanted it and got it scaled to the perfect size! This was going to be my first tattoo! I actually just got my tattoo today that is how excited I am over how wonderful it turned out! The staff were friendly and I loved the casual atmosphere as well. I couldn't be happier! Thank you for the wonderful experience! :)
ps. Karlos that game I was telling you was Undertale!
My tattoo artist was Karlos, he did a great job! I love the tattoo and had great experience at the shop! I will definitely go back!
I went to Chroma Tattoo and got a half sleeve of black and gray skulls by Karlos and I absolutely love it! Karlos is amazing. He did such a great job and treated me so well the whole time I was there. I would highly recommend Chroma and Karlos to anyone wanting a tattoo :)
Karlos did my tattoo, but I was really impressed with the whole facility. It was my first tattoo and he made the whole experience great. He was patient and explained everything, answered all my questions and did a great job. Everyone there was kind and the facility was very clean. Will definitely be back!
After having an issue with the shop losing my first appointment when I finally got in to see Karlos he did an amazing job on my little mermaid tattoo. He's a very talented artist and I'm absolutely in love with this new addition. Definitely want him to do my next one!
Awesome experience, gave Karlos a general Idea of what I was looking for and he killed it. Will be back....a lot.
Just wanted to say that Karlos gave me my very first tattoo on Saturday and it turned out phenomenal! The entire staff and the shop is awesome! It was a very enjoyable and relaxing experience!
Just got a Trash Polka half sleeve done by Karlos and I absolutely love it! Easily my favorite piece I've had done.
Karlos was my artist an I am extremely happy with his work I will definitely be back. He's so easy handed it was the biggest Tattoo I've had yet (took up the right side of my thigh) but was the easiest when it came to pain. Thanks again
-**One very satisfied customer**
First of all, I am in love with the shop. Its so clean and welcoming. There is a lovely sitting area with entertainment options in case you have someone waiting on you to finish. I can imagine the difference it makes to have a tv and game systems for those who need something to pass the time.
The owner took my mom back, changed out a post in her piercing and had a wonderful talk with her. She was gentle and friendly, something I always appreciate when it comes to dealings with my mom. Thank you for taking the time with her!
This is my second experience with Karlos, my first with him at Chroma. I loved the private room, tv set up, and of course the artist. He is always kind and considerate and always is very intune with how you are feeling. He knows when you are really starting to feel it, he pays attention and makes sure you are as comfortable as He can possibly make you. He even pulled up a chair for my mom to sit next to me if she wanted to stay, the little considerations are so nice! He took my general pictures and made a wonderful custom piece for me that had already not only amazed me, but my family who didn't understand the point of tattoos. Not only that, he took into consideration the other piece he put on my arm three years ago and helped incorporate bits of it so it would coincide wonderfully with something that isn't even the same style. I thought it wasn't possible but he did it! I'm in love, my family is dumbfounded, and I've already been stopped to ask where I've gotten the work done at quite a number of times.
During breaks, he's always thinking. Coming out and taking a look to see what to do next. The man is a true artist and I have no problem giving him creative freedom with what he needs to do with my tattoo. I fully trust him. I will be coming back to finish in this sleeve I'm starting to build up.
Thanks guys for such a wonderful experience!
I've worked with some amazing artists in my life, but Karlos at Chroma Tattoo was by far the best experience I've ever had. He has a gentle hand, a great sense of humor and is beyond talented. I would highly recommend him for anyone interested in a new tattoo, especially water color or abstract art! I am in love with my latest piece
I had a cover up piece done on my back by Karlos, and my entire experience from beginning to end with Chroma Tattoo was lovely. All the staff members I interacted with were friendly and helpful, and the shop itself is both clean and comfortable.
Karlos is an excellent artist to work with, he offered suggestions that improved the outcome of the piece I selected and made sure I was happy every step of the way.
I couldn't be happier with my tattoo, and I'll definitely be back for future pieces, great shop and fantastic people.
This place is amazing! Karlos was my artist and he did a Legend Of Zelda piece on my calf. I was so nervous but be made my first tattoo experience one to remember!
I always have a great experience when I visit Chroma Tattoo and tonight was no different. I went in for a consultation with Karlos and came out with a dope piece that came out better than I envisioned. The staff if always friendly and welcoming, the ship is impeccably clean and Karlos took my ideas and brought them to life. Thank you, Chroma Tattoo, for having talented artists and a great location!!
Yes, I'm going to be the girl that starts off by saying that I hate needles, so I was obviously really anxious about my very first tattoo. The entire staff was so great and really made me feel at home. Karlos did an AMAZING job and I left the shop planning my next tattoo. He was really light-handed and there was no pain, no blood, just a design that I know I'll love forever. I'll be seeing Karlos soon to help me design the next one. I've already recommended him to four different people that need some work done. Thank you guys so much for making my first experience so incredible. It really meant a lot to me.
Karlos did an awesome job. My first tattoo in memory of our beloved Bailey dog who we sent to Heaven recently. He is super nice and funny. I may have a crush on him!!!
I just got out of my session with Karlos, and I have to say it was the best tattoo experience I've had. He made my session so fun and relaxing. I've been to many shops where the workers were intimidating, or just plain rude, but everyone at Chroma really impressed me, and my mom with how open and kind they were. I will most definitely be coming back, and recommending this location to my friends.
