Scott collaborated with me on my first tattoo over 12 years ago. Shortly afterwards, we fully conceptualized the second one to complete the pair. Fast forward several years, and he was there again for... a brilliant touch-up.

He’s a badass Brit that can sling some ink! Not only that, but he’s also the most incredibly laid-back, LGBT accepting, new-wave loving jokester I’ve ever met.

My take on getting a tattoo is not the most relaxing feeling to endure. Scott made the experience fly by, and before I knew it, a complete success.

Do yourself a favor and get on his books! �

Scott has been tattooing me five years now. I wanted half sleeves for a couple of decades and didn't find anyone talented or personable enough until I met Scott! He's done two half sleeves on me, has ...fixed all of my previous tattoos, and is working on a leg sleeve. Definitely suggest giving him a go! Great work and a great time! See More

I would HIGHLY recommend heading over to 13 arrows tattoo! Scott was very professional as well as personable, chatting both my mom and I as we waited. The shop is clean and quaint and aesthetically pl...easing to the eye overall. This was my first tattoo and the writing I came in with Scott played around with, showing me different sizes for placement to make sure it was just right. I am so happy with the outcome of my tattoo and would definitely come back to Scott for my next tattoo! See More

Besides being the most conscientious tattoo artist I've ever worked with, Pepper has a fantastic sense of design, placement and technique that is essential for long-lasting ink work. She did 3/4 of a ...sleeve and another independent piece for me- highly recommend!! See More

Pepper is simply amazing! I brought her an idea on a fairly large leg piece, provided the elements of what I wanted in it, and turned over the reigns on the design and colors. I couldn't be happier w...ith this decision. She has exceeded what I imagined.

Her shop has a relaxed vibe and is that!

When you are excited about future collaborations, you know you've found your permanent shop.

I got my very first tattoo done by Pepper and I couldn't be happier! Pepper is very honest and knowledgeable about the process of being tattooed. I was somewhat anxious coming in to get my first tatto...o but Pepper made the experience go very smoothly. Pepper's shop is, in a way, very tranquil and a comfortable place to be tattooed. Pepper's sense of design and line work are amazing! I would recommend anyone to get tattooed by Pepper! See More

I recently got my first tattoo done by Pepper as well and I absolutely LOVE it! Pepper prides herself on making one of kind pieces for her clients and that's exactly what she did for me! For it being first tattoo I had a ton of questions and she was super patient and extremely knowledgeable throughout the entire process! She also prides herself on the cleanliness of her shop and her tools, which when getting a tattoo is extremely important! Her design ideas are truly unique and I cant wait to come back and get my second tattoo from her! See More

I recently went to Pepper to have a horrible flower tattoo covered. She created an amazing piece to cover the tattoo and placed it in such a way that it looked like it was the original design not a c...over up. She took the time to explain the process and was alway asking if I needed a break and made sure I was comfortable. I can't wait to go back again for another beautiful piece of art work from her.

Pepper is an amazing artist!! I saw her work on a stranger & knew she had the talent with watercolor tattoos I was looking for. She has the imaginative mind necessary to create the tattoo you have be...en thinking about, but cannot envision on your own. The shop is spotless & relaxing. Definitely recommend Pepper! 🌶 See More

Pepper is the type of person who makes sure her art work fits your idea. Do make a consultation, but she can deliver on the fly afterwards too.
I gave her the basic form of anchor I wanted and ...invited her to add the rest. The original anchor design came out great, but close to tattoo time I noticed something was missing. I asked to improv a cigar in the middle of my planned design the morning of and challenge accepted.
Everyone stops me to ask about the anchor and cigar aficionados always comment on the Gar!

Pepper is such a talented artist and is an absolute joy to work with. She doesn't just apply ink , she helps so much with applying designs in the most flattering ways and coming up with cool adaptatio...ns to your original concept. Her style is extremely unique to her and anyone would be lucky to be tatted by such a talented tattooer.

Pepper did a memorial tattoo for me, in memory of my Dad, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I only had a general idea of what I wanted, and she took the time to create the PERFECT image for... me. Pepper goes out of her way to make sure you're comfortable, and getting exactly what you want. I'll never go anywhere else! See More

Beautiful line work. Color is stellar. Incredible artist and studio. Clean and super professional. This is how every tattoo shop should operate. To have someone who is passionate about their work is a...mazing and rare these days. If I could give her 50 stars, I would! See More

While my community attended the Women’s Solidarity March today, I unfortunately had to work and tend to my administrative duties. While filing paperwork, I stumbled across the Planned Parenthood donation we were able to make from an art show fundraiser last year... thanks to the generosity of our passionate and brave community and clientele. I am proud that our shop is a strong voice championing diversity and compassion in Saint Pete. Thank you for your support, it means the world to us. I was with you all today in spirit. - Pepper Raefin
