“Ray is an amazing artist, back in the day we would be always drawing together for hours and was always willing to help if needed. He’s great at any type of custom design you could ever want. We ended up tattooing together a few times when he had a shop before. I would be a featured artist and l've never seen someone as kind and welcoming to customers when they came in. Always clean and sterile. He's probably one of the only people I would trust to tattoo me again. Definitely a great person and tattoo artist, would highly recommend going to him for any tattooing needs!”

“Ray was awsome, and did really good work. Came in for two tattoos on my arm. He was professional, fair priced and did great work. Lines were crisp, coloring and shading were really good. Definitely coming back to do a full sleeve!”
