IN THE BLOOD is in my opinion the best shop in the Pittsburgh area. Justun did my first tattoo when I was 16 years old. I am now 23 and still get tattooed by him. He runs a tight ship there! Immediately when walking in you'll be greeted by a extremely friendly staff. All of the artists and staff are very skilled in their concentration as well as knowledgeable in their own area. Justun, Doug, Seth, Mike, and Will are all very kind and are always eager to talk and make you feel comfortable and welcome in their studio! I was extremely impressed with the overall look of the shop too. It has a very "old school" but classic feel with the timeless tattoo flash and the gallery style lighting in the lobby. There is so much to look at!
During the tattoo process Justun was professional and very concentrated. He made me feel comfortable and calm. There was always easy listening music playing and a great conversation too! Justun has 10+ years of tattoo experience and it really shows in his work and his attitude. He is always eager to make people feel at home. This goes for all the artists there as well.
I also really respect and love the vision of IN THE BLOOD and how Justun has tied Christianity into tattooing. Two things that are sometimes considered separate, are so easily molded together with this shop. You can truly feel the positive and friendly presence when you walk in!
All in all I would highly recommend this shop to anyone in the Pittsburgh area and even near by! Its a five star studio that is clean and classic. I wouldn't settle for any other shop on the South Side. Boom!
