2nd time tattoo. Great artist n helpful.
Despite his incredible artistic talent, their prices are amongst the most reasonable in town and this is in my opinion the BEST VALUE tattoo shop in Singapore. I’ve got more than 50% of my body tattooed by Boon and am very happy with all his work. He is able to do excellent tattoos on dark skin which look great even after 10 +years.
