I went in for a walk-in on Saturday, and I came out with a tattoo that I am super happy about. We showed up when they opened at 12pm and I was working with Jorge about an hour later. Jorge did a really clean piece and he was great to work with. I recommend this shop and Jorge as an artist!
Got my first set of non-ear piercings. Owen was very professional and gave great tips and directions for aftercare. If I decide I any other piercings I will return! The space was super clean and private located in the garage at Harvard Square. Awesome spot!

This place is awesome! The staff are costumer oriented and the artists are talented and friendly. As for the service, they were patient with me- I consulted with them about different designs and they gave me great suggestions as for the designs themselfs, locations and modifications. Prices are fair and reasonable. My tattoo artist was strict about sterilization and during his work he kept on good general environment, occasionally asking me if I feel comfortable enough to move on.
Top notch hidden (easily missed store front) gem. Worked with Suze and was not only pleased but am heading back for more. I highly recommend them.

This is the place to get ink. Every artist is top shelf. The space itself is nicer, newer, and cleaner than most places I've lived. Check out their website. They are the best.
Pino Bros is my tattoo place and I love it! My artist is Dave, and he is great. He always exceeds my expectations and I trust his opinion for all my tattoos. It's a pretty cool atmosphere. They play movies and tv shows while you get tattooed. Helps distract from the pain a bit

This is my second tattoo and my first was about 4 years ago so i was a bit anxious as I forgot the process. Deirdre is a true professional!! I gave her 4 different references and wanted something from each. She drew up my tattoo in no time and I could seriously say I had NO changes! She is professional, personable and an AMAZING tattoo artist. She made me feel completely comfortable. I am happy to say I have an artist for life. Thank you Deirdre for your patience and your gift to put me at ease! It came out perfect and exactly as I had envisioned!!

I was a little nervous getting my first cartilage piercing, and received a recommendation to go to BTC by a friend (who recommended Brian). Brian wasn't in, so Joe Juliano did my piercing, and it couldn't have been a more positive experience. Thank you Joe! The business is incredibly professional and well run and clean, and everyone was able to immediately answer any and all questions above and beyond. Joe was no exception and was also amazing at keeping me calm, amused and distracted so I couldn't worry too much. He did a phenomenal job, and I have had zero problems with it. Can't recommend Boston Tattoo Company or Joe enough!
Clean, professional, most of all - fun. I am always stoked to show up and get some more ink. Love the energy the artists have at this shop.
