Super relaxed atmosphere, amazing artists who go above & beyond your every expectation! If your in Monterey there’s is NO OTHER shop I’d recommend except Gold Coast Tattoo!!!

Excellent as always! Cody is great. When he did my first one he said I would be back. I didn't think so - one was plenty - but he was right 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 every one has great meaning for me and I trust Cody to... get it right. See More

I just got my very first tattoo done here today, and I am so happy with the way it turned out! I had a small quote and a tribal-esque turtle done by Keeli and I was blown away by how awesome everythin...g went! Everything was clean, I felt comfortable in there, and the tattooing itself was very precise and smooth. :) I will definitely come back here if I decide to get anything else done!! See More

We traveled from Oregon and contacted the shop over a week before we came to make appointment for two tattoos. When we arrived upon the store opening we were told by the one employee that they wouldn'...t have time to do any tattoos today. See More

Got a tattoo here yesterday. The place is clean, stations are organized, everyone working there is extremely friendly, service is immediate, and prices are excellent. The artists work fast with steady... hands, and the quality of the work done is awesome. I can now officially say that "I've found my favorite tattoo shop", and I'll never go back to the other place I was going! See More

Horribly rude people and dirty looking facility. Weird group of people. Turned down six of us getting tattoos because they close so early 9pm. You know they have no where to go. They'll be a crappy ta...ttoo place forever. Don't go there!!!! See More

Thank you to Krista for her patience and help navigating my first tattoo.
I gave my husband matching tattoos for our first anniversary, and it was a great experience.
Krista is amazing, and Steve is awesome.

My wife and I visited (nervously) for our first tattoos on a recent trip from the UK. We needn't have worried, they were great. The hygiene standards were excellent, beyond our expectations and artist... Keeli made it a thoroughly enjoyable experience. It didn't even hurt that much. Most importantly, we love the tattoos he gave us. See More

I popped in a few days ago while on a 2 week tour of California. The guys were incredibly friendly, professional and the resulting hydrogen atom tattoo on my wrist is excellent.
I'd like to thank go...ld coast tattoo for adding a permanent visual remainder of the amazing time I had in California. See More
