At 12 Volt Tattoo situated on 1948th St. Chico, the artists believe in providing quality services at fair prices because nothing good comes cheap. They use only disposable needles and equipment for sanitation and sterilization purposes. The artists are quite good at surrealism tattoos, cartoons and animations, tribal tattoos, portraits, and so much more. The crew is particularly interested in bringing out the personality of a client through customizing designs for them.
Both Tanner and Chris are fantastic artists. It's clear they both really love what they do and their work reflects it. Clean lines, friendly staff, good price, and super willing to work with you to get exactly what you want. I love this place and I probably won't go anywhere else. Highly reccomend!
I have been a customer of Zac's for a long time. His work is fantastic. I have his art x12 on me. The shop is beautiful. Immaculate and fun. All of the artists are talented and professional. Seriously I will never go anywhere else.

Great tattoo and great price. Totally recommend this place. Joe did a great job. Love my tat.
I had Jose fix a rather large unfinished tattoo. I had been following his work and he is amazing. I let him Free hand fixup my leg piece. He was very attentive to every line and shape and shading. I was amazed to see what a transformation he had done. Professional and clean. I am very happy with the work done and a very reasonable price. I have many more I want to get done and Jose will be my tattoo guy!

If you are serious about your skin art collection Max Scott is the artist. I've been getting tattooed for over 20 years and the work still looks like the day I got em!! Even if you combined the other shops in Chico & added together years the experience doesn't equal. Apprenticed with legend Bob Roberts of Spotlight Tattoo, It doesn't get more legit than this. Solid line work, clean & sterile shop. Do yourself a favor, roll by Snake Spit Tattoo shop, get some quality work done!!!
Max’s shop is very relaxing and such a professional atmosphere. He gave me multiple amazing sketches from the ideas that I have him. I absolutely love Max as an artist and as a person. His work is phenomenal and I would definitely recommend him to anyone!

I've been coming here to see Jeremy Golden for a few months now. He is always kind and professional and listens to my ideas and then lends his expert advice. Any artist here will give you quality work and their accolades can attest to that. Highly recommend to anyone in Chico or surrounding areas ????????
Best work you can get. Ben Lucas is one of the best artists I know and will transform your vision into his drawing to some of the best ink around

Couldn't be happier. Victory Tattoo came very highly recommended by my buddy and I was blown away with my tattoo. The shop is very professional, down to earth and friendly. Derek is super knowledgeable and I will definitely be going back for more! Update: Second visit, second awesome tattoo. I traveled from the Bay Area because of my first experience only to experience the same as before. Derek is awesome, professional and a passionate/skilled artist who does beautiful work. Already planning another visit!
I got two piercings from Kristen, she is top notch. I have had multiple piercings over the years at different places and she is the only one that I will ever go back to and trust for any piercing work. She is definitely the best piercer I’ve ever had anywhere hands down.
