High quality tattoos and piercings


From the second I walked into Big Brain, I knew it would be the place where I could get my first tattoo. Not that I’m in the market for a tattoo. And not that there weren’t many people inside, both customers and artists alike, who didn’t already have many, many tattoos. It just seemed like the kind of place where I could get a tattoo, if I were, you know, interested. And, despite what it may seem, that’s no small compliment.

Far from the image of tattoo parlours as dirty, seedy lounges populated by tough, unsavory characters, Big Brain was bright, clean, and friendly. A bank of flat-screen panels display tattoo art on one wall. To the right, customers’ eyes will pan across to the computerized front desk and the airy, open studios behind it. From the gregarious owner, Smitty, on down, the staff at Big Brain seems committed to making everyone feel cheery and comfortable.

Plenty of people leave Big Brain tattooed head to foot, a testament to the quality work they do. However, whether you’re in the market for a simple piercing or something more complex, my bet is that the boys (and girl) there will do their best to make you leave happy. Not that I’d know.

I got my first tattoo at Big Brain in December 2010 and plan on getting my second there very soon.
All of the staff was extremely nice and helpful. Definitely a clean environment and not too over-bearing with loud music and the smell of incense like most shops. Even mom was pleased ;)

I have been thinking about getting a Angel tatoo for a long time. Your name was given your name by two people. When we were talking it seemed that most people there that had a tatoo, had @ least 1 from you. Everyone had a good tatoo and everyone said to come and get mine there! Brain and Dominic were booth mention and suggested that I use them. I have not had a tatoo before but have wanted one for a long time! Is there a book that I could look @? I would or could pick one out with maybe some help to personlize it.
