I had a mammoth of a project that I proposed and they took it on without any hesitation. 3 days and 17 hours later, I now have a complete leg sleeve that I am over the moon with!

From demonstrating professionality, extreme environmental hygiene and effectiveness, to showing kindness, humbleness and great customer service...
Not only did Marcel Backer leave me totally satisfied with my tattoo, but also did the whole True Blue crew bless me with just a genuine lekker day with amazing company. First session polished and I can't wait for the ones to follow!!!

Verdict: 5/5 does not do justice for this professional tattoo studio - that is, in my opinion, the best in the game!

"True Quality these days is hard to come by, but the amazing work done by Meghan and her team, is a cut above the rest. After reviving and adding some new work, I can honestly say they have to be the best around! Thank you again. A quote from the day I got tattooed. Me : it hurts, I feel like crying! Meghan : Cry inside!"
