A Chat with Thistle and Pearl Tattoo
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are by appointment only so that our clients have a minimum of 2 days to reflect on the final drawing, ensuring that it is exactly what is wanted. Our studio is comfortable and warm and we welcome everyone! Be it your first time getting a tattoo or your 100th, we’d love to work with you.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Getting tattooed is such a personal and memorable process. Having experienced being snubbed myself, or even ignored for not having the right “look” when exploring different tattoo shops, I strive to provide an environment where clients feel welcome and relaxed-as if they are in their own home.
What do you love most about your job?
I have the greatest job in the world and am so blessed to have such amazing clients! I love a good challenge-be it compositionally or technically. Bring me that “cover-up” that other artists have refused! I do it all and I love it.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
Tears of joy and smiles of gratitude.
