Modesto >Talisman Tattoos
Art at its finest!!. Wow where to start.. the shop is the cleanest shop i have ever been in.. Been to more than a few. When it comes to art its some of the craziest. When you go to the talisman you know its going to be a one of a kind. His pallet goes beyond that of most artist. Which definitley sets his pieces apart from others. NO DISRESPECT to all of the other artist that have tattood me but Chow is the best person to have tattood me. To people that worry about him canceling remember that you get what you pay for and hes definatley worth The wait. ALmost all tattoo artist cancel from time to time. DOnt act like you never called in sick to work..
While the art might be beautiful, the man behind it lacks solid business practices & treats his clients terribly.. After planning a trip to California from Montana to complete a large piece we had been working on for several years, an hour before my appointment time, I received a phone call cancelling my appointment, due to a broken water heater at Chow?s home. (Not even from the artist and business owner himself, but from his lackey of a brother, Mark)There was no attempt on the shops part to reschedule me, knowing I had traveled far to have this tattoo completed. I had to beg and two phone calls later, I was given an appointment 5 days after the original one, even though they knew I would no longer be in the area. I decided not to take the second appointment and rearrange my trip, as I had no guarantee that the same thing wouldn?t happen again. Well then I did get a phone call from the man himself, Chow, telling me what pieces of you know what my husband and myself were (my husband had some words with Mark) and Chow blaming the whole thing on me.(its my fault he lacks good business practices?) Needless to say I was devastated and now have no idea what to do with my half done tattoo. I hope anyone traveling to have work done by this man, regardless of how beautiful the artwork, will read this and be forewarned about how he treats his paying clients. Now I know why he can?t keep other artists or managers in his shop, and why his brother has to run things for him. If this is how he treats his paying clientele I can only imagine how he treated those who worked with/for him. Don?t be deceived by the artwork, the man is petty and full of himself and doesn?t care about the integrity of his business or his integrity as a man. I can?t even say he?s in it for the money, because my sitting that day would have more than paid for his new water heater. Please think twice before going to see this man for your artwork. Although the art might be beautiful, it?s my experience that nothing else about doing business with Chow or Talisman Tattoo will be.
Best in the U.S.!!!!!!!!. Best in town? Chow is THE BEST in the nation!! Chow has been tattooing me for years. I travel from Oregon to get art from this guy! I have been in 3 tattoo mags featuring my sleeve that has never been touched up, and is 8 years old! Cleanest shop I have ever seen (and I have been in a lot of shops from the east to the west coast). I would pay twice as much as I do, to get tattooed here! I can't say enough good things about this place, other than it is worthy of 10 stars not just 5. Way to go buddy! I'll see you next year for my next big project! The praying mantis has spoken!
