Here is a sample of what our clients have had to say about us:
Aishwariyaa Bhaskaran (Actress)
They know what works for you
“There’s honesty and integrity in Amar. His work is clean and he will NOT make you look ugly. Even if you come in with weird ideas, he’ll be straightforward with his opinion. He’ll tell you which colours will look good on you and which won’t. He knows what will work for your skin and body type.
For example I had asked him to use maroon on my tattoo but he suggested red instead. Just imagine if he hadn’t, then I’d have got maroon and would have been cursing in the end. You should be able to trust your tattoo artist and Amar is top notch. I think his work is along the lines of the guys at LA Ink and Miami ink.”
They understand the concepts behind your tattoo
“My husband and I had decided to get identical tattoos on his 38th birthday, but he passed away a week before the big day. I put aside the idea of getting the tattoo, but then figured … why not go ahead with it anyway? Life’s too short.
I had designed my own tattoos, so was slightly concerned about whether Nisha would be able to execute my ideas well. In fact, when I went to meet her I was expecting some ‘funky tattoo babe’…
But, being Chennai’s first professional female tattoo artist, she was nothing like that. I was very comfortable with her and noticed that she understood what my tattoos were about – the concept and reasoning behind them. She seemed to automatically choose the very colours I had in mind and as she started tattooing, there was a smooth flow to the whole process. In fact, if you ask her I’m sure she’d say her hand was moving almost by itself! She had a definite connection with the design. And there was so much positive energy in the room.
Later, Amar worked on my Tibetan mantra and did an equally great job. He was very well prepared and professional, and it shows in the design – it’s so intricate and smooth!”
Nice service at a rock-bottom price
“I was looking for a good deal from a nice artist … and I got that. No-frills work. Nice service at a rock-bottom price.”
They respect their clients
“What I really love about Amar and Nisha is that they don’t just tell you what you want to hear. Like, I remember I was planning to get the tattoo of a ring on my thumb but Amar actually advised against it, saying that I’d regret it in a couple of years … that especially in India it’d cause problems at work. And he was right. The thing is he could have just taken my money and done the tattoo, but he didn’t. That goes to show how much respect both he and Nisha have for their clients.”
They are accessible and open
“I remember being quite surprised to find out that Amar and Nisha don’t have tattoos themselves. Weird, right?!! But Nisha really put me at ease quite quickly. And what I liked the most was that she took the effort to call me later to see if I was following the aftercare instructions properly. They were both very accessible and open … and that makes such a difference.”
They work hard to make sure you are satisfied with your tattoo
“I was getting my children’s initials tattooed on me, so the whole experience was very personal and intense. What I liked was the flexibility with which Amar and Nisha approached the process. They were willing to listen to my suggestions and work with what I had in mind. At no point did they push me. They made sure I was completely satisfied.
Most of us have seen shows like Miami Ink and LA Ink on TV, and the thing is that these guys have the technique to match those artists. Their work is the same as what you see on your television screens. They’re just that good!”
They take time to understand exactly what you want
“The difference between Amar and other tattoo artists is the same as the difference between Allopathic and Homeopathic doctors.
With Allopathy, medicines are prescribed as soon as possible; whereas with Homeopathy, the doctor has in-depth conversations with patients to understand them completely before suggesting medication.
Amar is like that. I’ve noticed that he takes the time to understand his clients and build trust and a level of comfort. That’s very important.”
Getting tattooed didn’t hurt at all because of their level of skill
“When Amar tattooed me it didn’t hurt at all. In fact, I went to sleep . I think that’s a huge sign of how skilled he is. Also, he keeps his mouth shut while he works! That’s something I love about him!He puts a lot of dedication into his work and it shows … I’ve got 8 tattoos to prove it!!!”
