Denali (Ear Piercer) does an amazing job. She's patient and caring, I honestly could not recommend anyone else. Got my daith done today!
Absolutely professional! Took the time helping me decide where to pierce and which product to use. Great job.

Susan, Chris, and Dan are wonderful tattoo artists! Susan is certainly my favorite as she's done all of my work. Very friendly and down to earth. She does wonderful line work as well! 10/10, would get stabbed here again!

Jeff is an amazing tattoo artist! He's done 3 of mine so far and plenty more to come! All the staff are awesome and fun to chat with! Would highly recommend!
I got my nose re-pierced on Black Friday for $25 (including jewelry). This was my 4th time having my nose re-pierced, and the three other times were in the same spot, which caused lots of scar tissue. I was going for the same spot again, and the guy was the first one to tell me that it just isn't a good idea to pierce through the scar tissue, and what the risks would be if he were to do so. I really appreciate that he was actually looking out for me. The procedure was quick, clean, and professional. I have a tattoo that has a lot of sentimental value to me, but it's over 10 years old, the artist didn't do the greatest job, and the lines are blown out. I honestly did not think that it would be possible to clean it up and give it new life, but Jeff took a quick look at it and let me know that it's definitely fixable! All the artists are very kind. The atmosphere was great, and I have seen other pictures of previous work, and the pieces are beautiful! I'm very excited to go in for the next few tattoos that I plan to get! I definitely recommend this place!

I had a wonderful experience at Old Gold. Kris was very thoughtful with the whole process and did a hell of job on my tattoo. I'd go back in a heartbeat
I contitune to go back time and time again to Old Gold. Their crew is not only knowledgable on the craft of tattooing but are also amazing artists and professionals. Most recently I was tattooed by Chuncho, and he exceed any expectations I had for this piece, Chuncho is one of the O.G. artists that pushed for the tattooing scene in Bellingham and is the owner of the shop. For all my friends and family I would recommend any artist from Old Gold's repertoire but if you get the chance and he has to the time ask for Chuncho, not only will he give you some amazing ink he'll also give you a history lesson and tell you a story or two if you are lucky!
