Client Testimonial

“I have been going back to 8 Volts for almost 5 years since my first tattoo by Joe. It turns out we have mutual friends and share a common interest: food. Joe is the nicest tattooist I have met (not that I have many tattoos), not to mention extremely diligent and hygienic about the whole tattooing process. He will take his time to listen to your reason on tattooing, then my favourite part; the design. He will ensure that the design is unique and no two are the same which he tattoos on his clients. He will then send you home to wait for his designs, explaining each design on the use of colours and background. Until you are truly satisfied with the design then he will schedule a time slot for you.

Before the tattooing, he cleans the whole “bench” to ensure that you are comfortable during the process.
I can see the satisfaction on each of our faces after tattooing; mine cos I knew I trusted that the design is one that I wanted, and Joe for accomplishing his “art” without his client having to withdraw due to pain. In gist, tattooing can be painful, but Joe makes it so relax and calming that you wish you could get more tattoos.”

Client Testimonial

“Came across Melvin on Instagram and was interested in getting a tattoo from him. I knew the style I wanted but do not really know what content I wanted. Sat down with him and discussed about what I should get and finally decided on one of his suggestions. The tattoo session was very enjoyable and we chatted throughout it. Melvin is a very professional artist and I’ll gladly find him again for my next. Keep up the good work!”

“Ah! How could I ever forget to write a review for the talented Joseph?! He was an angel and redid a tattoo that had been done a bit poorly in Thailand. He made it look perfect! An artist that dares to fix someone else’s mistake is a humble artist that deserves much gratitude. Then I got a beautiful black and grey realistic rose tattoo on my shoulder. This was about 5 years ago already. Eek! Sorry for the very late review. But, better late than never right? I love my rose and get loads of compliments for it! Joseph was kind, easy going, and an amazing tattoo artist! Thank you Joseph! I would go back to him for many more if I had him closer to me!”
