    Clients Say It Best

    “A welcoming atmosphere with exceptional artists. One couple drove from Tallahassee to have their tattoos done here. Artist, Robert Hawley, transformed an idea I had for a tattoo into so much more and I was blown away by his artistry, I absolutely love my new tattoo. His assistant, Becca, was a complete joy to work with and she filled me in on all the shop’s policies, happily answered my questions, and responded quickly to emails. I highly recommend Ascension Tattoo, 5 stars and 2 thumbs way up.” – Cherilyn Taylor, Google Reviews

    I highly recommend Ascension & specifically my artist Robert Hawley. He was friendly & professional before during and after my session. It’s been almost 2 years since I got my tattoo and it still looks clean, vibrant & like new! Clean shop and everyone there was friendly & helpful.” – Sara E., Google Reviews

    • Minimum Charge: $300 per piece
    • Deposit: $100 (goes toward design time and holding your initial appointment; non-refundable)
