Went to Melissa for both of my tattoos, it was nothing but a pleasurable experience. Making an appointment was easy, everybody else in the shop was awesome too. Even with my second one, I was Melissa’s last appointment and she even worked past closing time to finish it up and make sure everything was perfect. The shop is so great the it’s become a family affair, both my sisters, my brother in law and my cousin all go to Melissa for their tattoos also. Nothing but love and respect for everyone in the shop

Melissa is an incredible artist and will draw up the most creative tattoos with very little input from me, all I have to give her is an idea. I recommend the shop to anyone and everyone. They all are so warm and welcoming. Thank you guys for always being as amazing as you are!!!

Had a great experience at this shop! Everyone was very friendly, and Melissa is an incredibly talented artist. Melissa was very prompt in responding first via IG, then via email. She made my vision of my new Taino tribal tattoo come to life! Melissa also brought a 15-year-old tattoo back to looking brand new! She has an incredible hand, she is very professional, super personality, great conversations while she worked, and offers very fair prices. Top notch service and quality. Melissa at Sparrow Tattoo deserves raving reviews and I highly recommend supporting her and trusting her with your tattoo needs!

In the past 3 years I have had 11 tattoos by Melissa. I have had only positive experiences while at Sparrow Tattoo. Melissa is kind, creative, gentle and a great listener. She literally brought my visions to life. Not only is she an incredibly talented artist she’s one of the coolest people you will ever meet. I have sent many people to her and every single one of them has been back for more and have never had any complaints. My sister and I were both pierced by Tristan and he was professional and gentle, not to mention a badass tattoo artist as well. I highly recommend going to Sparrow tattoo if you are considering getting tattoo’s.

I've been going to Sparrow since December 2021 and have gotten numerous tattoos done there since. The atmosphere is always so friendly and fun, and you can tell the artists take their work very seriously. Melissa has done all of my tattoos since I first discovered them and I can simply never go to a different shop ever in my life because I know the experience won't be the same. I highly recommend anyone (first timers or not) check out Sparrow. It was a lucky and spontaneous find for me and I'm glad I am able to get whatever tattoos I want there.
