I really had such an awesome experience everyone was really nice to us. I brought my whole family in to be done for there $20 Friday the 13th special. I am currently in a wheel chair and they took the... time to accomidate me and went through the trouble to put a big table in the booth so I could be comfortable. They went above and beyond! Thank you guys all of you at maddogs!! Thanks Mark!! See More

I’ve now had three tattoos which I love (out of this shop). Both Marc DeLeon and Jake Surber have yet to let me down as artists. I love that they have zero issue with putting their own spin on each on...e, especially if you tell them you want them to. I’ve never even had to tell them a color before! I just made them aware of which colors I don’t like and they did the rest!

Update: I finally participated in Friday the 13th specials. I absolutely love the result!

I came here with a swollen, infected tragus piercing done at a different shop. Not only was it swollen and infected but the skin around my piercing healed over it. I found Brittany and she was so pati...ent with me and figured out a way to turn this disaster around. She saved me from having to have surgery and is the sweetest person ever. When and if I get another piercing I will forsure make sure it's by her ! See More

Had a wonderful experience my fiend and i did a walk in for piercings. Pat was veryr calm and informative. They even had legos for my son to play with while he waited. They have a fun environment that... helps ease anxiety. Thank you for the great experience. See More

I had a commemorative tattoo done there in October 2017. Then came home and freaked out over flaws that either didn't exist or we're so small and nitpicky that only I noticed. It was losing my husba...nd that I was upset about but I was mean to them instead... The tattoo looks great, healed without issue and is wearing well. They did a good job. See More

Got my first ever tattoo done by @[100012644172411:Loren Hubbard] aka Zombie and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Very fair price, awesome environment, and a welcoming staff. I'm very anal... and scouted every possible place before finally deciding to get a tattoo and this was the best for price and quality. See More

Got the $20 surprise tattoo, Justin (half pink hair) came in on his day off to do the last 7 of us because the others didn't want to stay past closing to finish up. Me and my boyfriend were the last t...wo and couldn't come back any other time this week and he was super awesome staying till almost 4 in the morning to make sure we got taken care of when the other artists left!! His work is super clean and he doesn't have a heavy hand and makes everyone super comfy! Thanks Justin for being super cool wish the other artists had been as chill as you thanks for coming on your day off and staying so late for us!!!! And this was his 2nd day staying super late in a row your a beast and I look forward to working with you on a couple of my next tattoos!! See More

From first hand experience The people at this shop are rude, unprofessional, and if you are a person of color you will not be treated with respect.I would never recommend this place to my friends or family.

Went to for the fair special they had. Loved both of my choices and couldn't decide on which to get. Adrian did both my pieces and they were awesome. He made me laugh the whole time I was there.

At the last minute on a Halloween night, my husband had gone to another local shop and been told that the shop owner wouldn't be able to do the tattoo he wanted because he wasn't willing to allow them... to change it. He also only had a couple hundred dollars for it. It was our anniversary and he was determined to get a tattoo to celebrate 11 hard years together (special needs child, death of his brother, etc). This tattoo meant A LOT to him. After he was turned away at the other shop, he went to Mad Dog. Not only did they give him the EXACT tattoo he wanted (IT LOOKS AWESOME!), but it was affordable as well. We aren't first time tattooers. we can tell when someone isn't experienced. The lines were fluid, no shaking of the hand, no digging too deep or not enough. It was perfect.
When you get a tattoo, the energy of the person giving it to you is just as important as the final result. We are EXTREMELY HAPPY! This is an A+++ tattoo shop with QUALITY tats and people who care, and I will be going back to get my anniversary tattoo (and more!!) as well. My goal is to finish getting the other tattoos I want within the next year. Mad Dog won our loyalty. THANK YOU!!!!!!!
