Jenifer Zuberbier Broussard 5 star -Everyone is exceptionally friendly & down to earth. But the best part is that this shop has some amazing artist! They made me feel at ease and relaxed. I have followed Josh's work for the past year & after meeting with him, I knew right away that he was the right artist to do the cover-up on a tattoo I received a few years back. Now I have this amazing recreation of my beautiful Abbey with me for life & I couldn't be more satisfied!

Davey Sprockett — 5 star -Charles has an AMAZINGLY positive attitude toward not just his guests, but his life!  The establishment known as Instant Classic Tattoo is VERY clean and organized.  The music selection varies from metal to dance (the shop even played my albums while I sat for my first sleeve session) very inviting and friendly guys in the shop...highly recommended.  I've received nothing but compliments on my sleeve progress.  AMAZING LINE WORK!

Stephanie Garcia 5 starWalking into the shop is always a great experience and I always leave looking forward to my next appointment! The first thing I noticed is how clean and sanitary everything is. Charlie is working on my sleeve, which I constantly get compliments on. I don't have any work done by the other artists, but from what I've seen they do awesome work! I highly recommend Instant Classic to anyone who is looking to get a great custom piece that they will be proud of.
