Mc Tattoo? hardly. – The previous "reviewer" obviously has no idea what kind of operation Read St. is. They most likely pointed you to some books for reference, to gain a starting point, as they do with pretty much everyone who goes into their shop. they keep an immense library of reference books on hand, to make sure that each tattoo's particular subject matter is thoroughly researched. You will not find any instant tattoos at their shop, nor will you find anyone working there, who feels they can handle every person's requests. If you were directed to some books, you might want to consider that perhaps you werent being clear as to what you wanted, and the artist needed a point of reference.
I'm thrilled with the service and the work at Read St., and will continue to have all of my work done there. i have always felt that my artist understood me, and never did i feel blown off, or that they were "stuck up"
Perhaps you're better off getting tattooed at a "museum", if you can't understand how it works at a real tattoo shop.
Stuck Up – Went there because I was told they were good. Had a vision for a back piece. The guy didn't really want to listen to me, but instead pointed me to some books. I did not want to get a McTattoo so went somewhere where they actually listen to the client.
Editorial Review – In business since 1999, this parlor offers local art exhibitions and tattoo and piercing services.
You couldnt ask for better tattooing, and totally worth the wait! – Baltimore got really lucky when Seth decided to open his shop here in 1999. Read Street Tattoo offers truly world class tattoos, in a city where something so special could easily be overlooked, perhaps in favor of a lower price, or ease of obtainability. I first got tattooed by Seth when he worked at a shop in randallstown, and have since followed him to Read Street, where he's completed three large pieces on my back, chest, and lower leg. I cant express enough, the amount of compliments i get on the color and detail, and people never believe that my tattoos are several years old, many thinking that they are fake!
I recently went back for another tattoo from him, and found him to be booked solid for about 5 or 6 weeks, so he referred me to one of his co-workers, Hunter, who did an awesome job on my new tattoo! He walked me through the design process, placement, color choices, and longevity issues. (some of the lines were too close together), and the whole time, he was SOOO patient with me! He was such a sweetheart!
i will come right out and say that these guys are not the cheapest place in town, but they are EASILY the most skilled and most friendly. I will also say that it's best to AT LEAST call ahead if you plan on getting a tattoo.
They have portfolios visible on their website, and personally, I'd be wary of places which dont offer to show the work up-front.
