Here is a review from an user.
Sailor’s Grave is the ONLY place anyone should be interested in paying a visit in San Diego. I haven’t been to another shop in over a year because the guys here do exceptional work, particularly Gary (the owner). I get complimented on how beautiful my tattoos are every time I go out, and the quality is there to back it. Loyal customer for life right here!!
Awesome experience and got exactly what I asked for at a good price. Experience was super relaxing I ended up taking a nap 😄 *update*: just got another tat the other night and was worth it to go back again. They’re very welcoming and down to earth. Good prices and worth the booking. Highly recommend this place to everyone I meet considering getting a tattoo
Daniel is absolutely amazing! My friend and I just happened to meet him when we got some walk in tattoos and have been going back ever since. My friend is getting a full sleeve done by him and I’ve had 3 different pieces done. He’s great. Very professional and amazing work. The shop he works at is super chill and you don’t feel intimidated or uncomfortable at all (like I have at a lot of other shops). Go see Daniel!
I’ve come here for years. The 3 artists, Brent, RJ, and Greg are all awesome. You’ll get great work and great conversation and music. There never a seems to be a good time for parking, but that’s not their fault.
Julian is a great artist who really cares about his pieces and what the subject is looking to get. He worked well with the information I gave him about my piece and it came out better then I envisioned. He has amazing customer service skills as well. He’s offered to work with me, on my time, to find the best style for an upcoming tattoo. No hassle, just good art and good vibes. / recommend this guy!!
Got my first "real" tattoo over my shoulder to cover a surgical scar. Other than the expected pain, the whole process was great. The tattoo only took an hour, was much cheaper than expected and turned out beautifully. Shane was very nice and interesting to talk to.
Nim’s work is amazing! I’d wanted to have my brows done for a long time and am thrilled to no longer have to fuss with them every day. I wake up with perfect brows! They look beautiful, natural, and restored to their former, younger glory. I highly recommend Nim. She takes her time, answers questions thoroughly, and knows what she’s doing.
Holly is my girl. I’m someone who likes to come up with tattoo concepts that has personal meaning behind it, bring it to the artist, and let them bring it to life however they see fit. Holly is beyond creative and artistic and has done that for me numerous times and has given me the sleeve of my dreams! I get compliments on it daily. She’s also just a joy to be around, and she cares deeply about making sure each tattoo fits the needs and wants of her client. Until she dies or quits tattooing, Holly has my loyalty and my gratitude, and I will be seeing her again!
My experience at HQ Tattoo was amazing! First impressions and customer service is paramount to me and they had all that and more. My 2 friends and I were walks; we were greeted by John who was very friendly and helpful. John offered us cold bottles of water as we decided on what we wanted and patiently answered ALL of our questions (we had many). My Tattoo Artist was the owner Eduardo. He has been blessed with skilled hands! Eduardo was very professional and knowledgeable. His bedside manners are impeccable. As for the shop, the overall environment was pleasant. The shop offered a look into the mind of talented Artists, which included handmade artwork of the owner and staff members. It was beautiful decorated. The owner and staff members that pride in their workplace which is evident with the cleanliness of the shop. I am very pleased with the services HQ Tattoo provided to my friend and me. I highly recommend HQ Tattoo, I will be a returning customer!
My husband and I found Morgan by chance 5 years ago when we wanted “walk in” tattoos. We have seen her for tattoos yearly since then when we visit San Diego from New Hampshire. This year we also each got tattooed by Max. They are AMAZING people, that do incredible work. The shop is extremely clean, welcoming, and beautiful. One of my biggest anxieties about tattoo shops is that I always feel awkward/unwelcome. I’ve never once felt that way with Morgan and Max. They are always excited about any piece we ask them to do, and execute each tattoo beyond expectation!
This. Is. The. Spot. Sergio is an incredible human being with an insane amount of talent. His original artwork is beautiful. My favorite thing about this shop is how similar Sergio, Jane, and Joe’s style are. You can literally walk into the shop, pick something off of the wall, and it’s GOING to look sick on your skin. Love this place.
The only tattoo place I go to! Eric is amazing and has the best personality! His work is fantastic, I get so many compliments on all my tattoos when people see them! I’ve gotten 3 tattoos so far, and already planning my next ones! If you’re debating where to go, stop looking and call them now for your next tat!
Frankie and Heather are the owners of this place, they are both amazing. They were both friendly and I felt welcomed instantaneously. The establishment is cute, clean and sanitary. Heather pierced my ear and made me feel comfortable right away, the conversation came easy and she was efficient along with abiding by all the sanitation protocols. I will definitely be back and encourage friends to come here for a tattoo and/or piercing! Great quality work and great people!
