Got mine done by Kirk at Adrenaline. Very happy with the work, and didn't have to go back for any touch ups.

for those of you wondering, he charges $165/h for larger pieces. great work. i have a back piece were working on right now.
Don't talk if you don't know lol

Jesse had an apprentice called Jay, due to an arguement, Jay split off and formed his shop called "Trigger Happy". Both their shops are on Renfrew, super close to each other. I know before hand because I have gotten from Jesse personally and I had friends that gotten tattoos by Jay

I'm the guy nicolaspal is talking about. Got my work from Jesse, half sleeve, chest plate and a bit of back piece. Crazy work.. but wouldn't go there again.

1. Very full of himself..
2. Had to "brb" in middle of my session to eat. Comes back all fucking wired eyes huge, pupils dilated to the max and super sweaty. Heard a lot of artists do Ice cause it gives them a super steady hand. THEN AFTER, due to the fact he was "too hungry again" had to stop my appointment. Guy was wired as FUCK. lmfao
3. Overcharges.. i swear he worked super slow and milked me at some parts..

But overall his work's fucking amazing..

Don't talk if I don't know? Look at the date of the post. I was in the present tense. I'm no tattoo historian, but I am familiar with both artists -- I have work from both of them. Sorry to hear that you had a negative experience? Not trying to ride anyones dick but From what I know, I myself hav never had a bad experience with Jesse before and neither has anyone else that I talked to that has had appointments thereafter.

Although I can somewhat know what you are talking about in point 1. Hes pretty strongly opinionated about certain things, but isn't everyone entitled to their own?

Good things come to those who wait. My wife didnt go to her normal artist because of the wait time (said it felt like she was cheating on him lol) just for something quick and, she thought, easy - hard to screw up - just the first initials of my two daughter's names. Long story short she's on the long waiting list to spend more money with her regular artist so he can fix the shitty work this other artist did.

One thing I've never understood is how most people live their whole lives without a tattoo and once they figure out what they want, they have no patience and have to get one right away. That shit is on you for life. Wait.

+3 for Cohen ! Got my full left sleeve from him. Buddy does great work and the wait usually isn't that long. Check out Jeremy Riley's work too.
