ARTIST & CO-OWNER
I have my work done by Melissa Taylor. She is a very talented mega awesome Artist and Apex is very clean and has a calm atmosphere.
I have been to Owen a few times and have really been happy with all of my experiences and tattoo results. I particularly love how well and easy his tattoos heal. No scabbing . They just sluff off naturally and easy. He also was able to add on and fix a very old tattoo of mine. Everyone at this shop seems to be cool and talented.
I had my tattoo done yesterday and I love it. The shop is a wonderful space, very bright and airy. It's upstairs trees in courtyard so you feel like your in a treehouse. Owen was wonderful and I enjoyed my time there. I already made appointment to start moving down my arm.
Definitely coming back when I'm ready for my next piercings!
...if you're thinking about getting a tattoo for the first time, or want a nice chill professional tattoo experience, highly recommend this place!
Me and my friend went to get piercings here after two stops at zebra and Industrial in Berkeley where we were treated poorly. The staff at apex was amazing and kind! The piercing didn't hurt at all and we will be back for more!
I only came in to get new jewelry, but the piercer was very friendly and helpful. The nose stud I got was a little pricey, but it's high quality, and the piercer sterilized and helped me try on different sizes of posts. The place looked clean and had a good energy about it. If I decide to get another piercing, this will be where I go!
Fantastic customer service. Received a piercing and felt like I got a comprehensive service, not just punch and go.
