It was awesome!! I just got my second tat there, end the guy Dan who did it drew even it better than the photo he had to go by. My friend went there, and now I've been there. I would definitely recommend getting your first or even 100th tattoo there!

I prefer to get a tattoo without the owner telling me that he use ti fool around with his cousin. I don't care if she use to be hot. That's SICK.

Becky Hart

I went back in to have my tattoo completed. Craig did a great job! I am one of those people who have a tendency to faint. He was very patient put the fan on for me and continued to ask how I was doing. He was friendly and funny with a conversation that kept my mind busy and off of the actual tattoo process. I couldn't be happier with the results. I will be back soon for my next tattoo. Thanks Craig Murphy

A friend and I stopped in, on a whim, for a couple of simple tattoos. The owner, Craig, ended up taking care of us and he was beyond great! My friend got exactly what she went in for and loves it! I, on the other hand, was talked into adding to the piece I wanted done. I am extremely pleased with what he came up with. We both love our new ink and will definitely be back!

Ryan Frantz

LOVE this place! I went with my roommate and husband---all 3 of us left with AMAZING tattoos. Definately way better than all the other tattoos I've seen other people walking around with. 100/10 we will definately be returning for all of our tattoos from now on. Best atmosphere I've ever experienced in a tattoo parlor, very positive attitude and great music! The only downside is I had two piercings done recently. I'm extremely diligent with cleaning and both of them got infected. I'm a little upset about that since I've had lots of piercings done by other piercers and none od those ever had any issues. Still very happy with my tattoo though

I went in there last night and an artist was talking to some girls and he saw me walk in and walked away when he was done with the girls. I never saw him again in the 10 minutes I was waiting for assistance. Another tattoo artist when by me twice not saying anything. I was completely ignored. If someone would have said something like I'll be right with you or anything to acknowledge in anyway then I would have no problem waiting, but no one did acknowledge me. I have heard nothing but good regarding the artists here, but that means nothing to me if they have no customer service. I will not go here again.

kelly Pechous

Got a lion tattoo here a few months back and it's easily the best tattoo I have. Would recommend skin of a different color and mr max anyday.

I have been to many different tattoo shops.... I have gone in and looked around, sat and watched and left..................... I have been to Skin of a Different Color many times and each and every time I've got a tattoo. Craig Murphy the owner is awesome, he has been tattooing for over 40 years, the other artists are as well awesome. Sometimes you might have to wait but come on people it's first come first serve..................Once it's your turn, they do take their time but do you want them to rush drawing up your tattoo or rushing you in and out???? of course not: So please be patience when you have to wait a bit because they are thinking, drawing, and making it yours!!!! Skin of a Different Color......ROCKS!!!!!

Nicholas Treadway

Went to Craig two weeks ago to get a tattoo of my husband’s airplane. He did an awesome job for me two years ago so I had complete trust in him. He captured everything I wanted in the drawing he did for me, but completely botched the actual tattoo that’s on my right wrist and that I’m going to have to look at for the rest of my life. I went from crying since I left to total anger! I still can’t look at it without feeling anger/disgust and there’s nothing that can be done. I had him try to fix his mistakes after he showed it to me, but the damage was already done. The actual tattoo has SO many mistakes (at least six and it’s a small tattoo!!!), it’s almost like a child traced it. I’ve had it for two weeks and and am embarrassed to show anyone, but it’s ON MY WRIST! I’m totally screwed!!! The only positive is that I’m old and will die sooner than later. DO NOT! Repeat - DO NOT get your next tattoo here!! Biggest regret of my life at 61 years of age!!!!

My wife went here for a piercing and I don't believe they prefer a different type of race.

I came with a friend to get tattoos and we both had a wonderful experience. I watched the artist redo the stencil on my friend several times because he wanted to ensure the perfect placement. He was very personable and did a wonderful job. The woman who did my tattoo also did a fantastic job. We talked about cats and she put up with my foot twitching and I ended up with an absolutely amazing tattoo. I would absolutely come back again.

kevin mcewen

I had 10 tattoos done by Craig in the 90s

Robert Jastremski

Love this place! All my tattoos are from here. Craig is great and does amazing work plus he's light on the needle so rough spots aren't nearly as bad.

Bob Shuttleworth

Nice ink

Joseph Valiga

Craig and everyone that works there are great!! I've been going there for 15 years. Great artists at a great price. I've been happy with every piece I've gotten there. My brother and my niece both get their work done there as well.

Colleen Cope

Craig is amazing! I told him 3 things I wanted on my forearm and he took it to another level! I told him "have fun with it" and he said "absolutely". He's truly an artists and I had the best time there and the most beautiful memorial piece! Thanks so much to him and the staff. Words can't express what this piece means to me. Love you guys! Love Craig!

Monica woods

My husband, sisters, and I just came in last night and we were ecstatic on how our tattoos came out. Mr. Max greeted us right away when we walked in and he was awesome. Craig also made us feel like family and made sure we were having a good experience. Everything from our tattoos, cleanliness, good vibes, and Dad jokes from Mr. Max are the reasons we will be back!
