Matt Baker

Got my first and second tattoo done here over the course of a few months by these guys. Staff is so friendly and knowledgeable and passionate about what they do I came in to get my third piece started. Both Victoria and Cameron are fun to talk to! Every time I walk in I feel like I’m at home.

jeremy grey

Great shop, Chris did my tattoo and it came out great. Everyone at the shop was cool too. Would recommend to anyone new in town looking for a good shop

Kendall Colvin

I researched tattoo parlors before visiting Charleston and found this one, highly rated. After getting a small tattoo on my wrist, had it done and found it to be done too deep and now looks like a water color tattoo... very disappointed as this is a forever mark.

Ella Comer

Got my first tattoo here by Chris. He and the rest of the staff were extremely welcoming and informative about all steps of the process. I felt at home the entire time. The atmosphere there is laid back but at the same time very professional. I'm extremely happy with the results. The lines are super crisp and it's overall such a good first tattoo. Thanks, guys!

Abby Mart

Great place with great people.

Paul McDonald

Anywhere but here. They were less than impressed to have me as a customer. I picked out a simple little "X", that would become a work in progress. This "X" is about the size of a quarter and only took about 15 minutes. The artwork is ok but …

Emil Benson

Shane did a great job fixing a tattoo I had gotten at another tattoo shop. I am very pleased with how the tattoo turned out. The staff is very friendly and professional. Don't waist your time with any other shop. Go to this one. You won't be disappointed.

Creekside Barn Company

We are visiting here, coming from Northern Ohio & asked several locals the past 3 days, for tattoo parlor recommendations. EVER SINGLE PERSON we asked: has given this place a ton of positive credit. I think we better be sure to make time to get a tattoo here when the vibes are this high. Update...I went back to get the tat & Even had time to add eye color to an existing tat. We were just as satisfied as we were told we would be, if not more. Had a great time, it was affordable & very professional , not to mention they got me in & out on my tight schedule. This tattoo place is PHENOMENAL & Ive been to many different places & gotten about 15 tats, but honestly this one tops them all.

Chris was absolutely amazing! The whole experience for my daughter Stephanie's first tattoo for her birthday was amazing. Everyone was so nice. Treated us so kind and respectfully. I will most definitely go back when I'm in the area!

Jessica Davies

I had went to another parlor and gotten quoted two different prices for the same tattoo, so I started looking at reviews for other parlors in the area and found Broken Lantern. Very good reviews, so I went there to check it out. They are all very knowledgeable, helpful, friendly and fair with their rates. I ended up getting two tattoos, one from Shane and one from Chris and they are both perfect! Anoyone who is looking for a tattoo in the area should go there!

Tracy Richardson

In town for the weekend stopped by on a whim and had a great experience! My artist was Chris he’s the best! Great customer service, great work! Love my tattoo

Matthew b

I recently visited broken lantern in search of my first tattoo in memorial of a lost loved one. I went to a different parlor in town and just didn’t feel the love or interest. As soon as I walked in the door I was immediately greeted and the search was on. Within 15 minutes my brother and I had picked out the tattoos that just imagined. It was a honor to have Chris help my brother and I get through this. Not only did he find interest in the Tattoos we wanted, the other artist in the shop found them meaningful as well. What a great place. I will be going back in the future. Thanks for the help guys! Chris thank you for your service sir

this is me

Broken Lantern has really good reviews and is nominated to be the best tattoo shop in Charleston. I assumed all the artist working here would be able to do good line work but unfortunately, I was wrong. I requested a relatively simple …

Scott Carvin

Getting a tattoo at Broken Lantern Tattoo was an absolute amazing experience! They took my design idea and made it better! I couldn't be happier with the results.

Caroline Luckett

Chris did an amazing job! This was my first tattoo so I was a little nervous. He made it easy to be relaxed. Will definitely be coming back for more tattoos from him!

Jerra Burnell

Just got 3 tattoos done at Broken Latern today, they were really friendly and super nice. They took my vision and did a hell of a good job sketching it out! I recommend everyone to go to Broken Latern. They were super quick and every tattoo artist does really amazing work.

Celine Lantz

I had come in for a cover up of a tattoo and an experience that just wasn't ideal or what I envisioned and Broken Lantern did the absolute best job taking care of me and helping me figure out a plan for the cover up. Cameron was incredibly helpful with helping me figure out designs that would work and Shane was phenomenal with sketching up exactly what I had hoped for. He took the time to really understand what I wanted and came up with the perfect design! Shane was also super easy to talk to and was able to distract my wimpy self from the pain with his awesome taste in music. Broken Lantern did everything possible to help my situation and make me incredibly happy. It's so evident that Cameron and Shane (and I'm sure the rest of the crew!) want you to have the best experience possible and they care about your ink as much as you do. I would recommend them to anyone and will definitely be going back!

Josh Winters

Good location with easy parking access. Everyone here does great work and if you're not the one getting inked the waiting area is very nice. They have comfortable seating and even a table top arcade.

Bryn Turner

The whole staff is so amazing and makes you feel so at home!!!

Michael Wilusz

Glenn did an amazing job today with a wolf tattoo on my chest. He is awesome and I definitely won’t go anywhere else. He also did a grizzly bear on my side a few months ago and they are so good they look real. They both have personalities to them. He does a great job with fine lines and shading and both of the tattoos covered up older tattoos and you can’t tell at all. Thanks man!

Hannah Solenberger

One of the best tattoo shops I've been to! Great staff, makes you feel at home as soon as you walk in. Definitely recommend!

Elizabeth Julia

Absolutely freaking amazing . "Clipper" Chris did a full sternum tattoo on me. Had a incredibly light hand and was a master with his line work. Seriously impressive work and an amazing amount of skill to make a idea look so perfect. His traditional is great. I could not be happier. Super clean space, very organized and professional. Best was his willing to get input from the other artists for input to make sure it looked it's best.

Anna McCall

Went to Chris for matching tattoos with my siblings and he did an amazing job! He was super friendly and completely open to all our different requests. He was patient with placement changes and wanted to make sure it was exactly where we wanted before he started. Not my first tattoo so I kind of knew what to expect but it was the first for one of my sister's and Chris explained every step of the way and answered all the questions she had. We got a geometric design and his line work was spot on. If you're looking to get work done I'd highly suggest going to Chris!

Brandon Weinberger

Chris and the rest of the staff are without a doubt the best in the Charleston area. Everyone's very friendly and had great laughs. Coming back later on to finish up a video game sleeve. Thanks again Chris

Johnny Utah

Friendly staff. Got a chest piece done by Glenn who was professional, quick, detail-oriented, and client-conscious. I gave him a lot of space to create and he exceeded my high expectations. 100% would recommend to anyone looking for high-quality ink. It’s a 2-hour drive for me, but it’s well worth it—you can make an appointment over the phone/email, which was really helpful as an out-of-towner.

Devon Dome

Had a great experience with them. They completely understood anytime I had to push the tattoo back due to situations and never rude. When the tattoo came the artist, chris Jones, had great suggestions on what to do and kept everything we wanted to do involved with the tattoo. It was professional yet friendly and comfortable environment. The tattoo looks great and it honestly was the best first tattoo experience I could imagine.

Jacob Dawes

Just got my first tattoo done on my inner arm and it turned out amazing. Chris did a phenomenal job and I will definitely be going back in the future. And shoutout to Cameron at the front desk for all the help.

Nick Puckhaber

Got my tattoo about a year ago. Looking at it now, and looking at other tattoo shops I will never go here again. Price would have been fine if the tattoo looked good. $410 wasted, in 2 1/2hr it was partially complete, the guy was ready to …

mathew mcclary

got some work done by Chris, and i would highly recommend him to everybody. Very respectful, clean, and willing to change things so that you’re 100% happy with the results. His line work is outstanding, and his way of color blending is amazing. He’s very friendly and personable which makes the time fly by. He breaks down the process of aftercare, and makes sure you leave happy and with all your questions answered.

Robert Washington

Usually I am not the one to write reviews but I really had a great experience, with Broken Lantern and their team! The counter person (Cameron I think?) was more than helpful talking through my idea and getting something designed up. From there we looked at availability and found a time later that day they could squeeze me in! My tattoo artist Kat was stellar, not only was she a great artist but a lot of fun to be around. Start to finish I enjoyed my time at the shop and will be back in the near future.

Katy Macklin

got a small spine piece done earlier today by Chris and i am more than happy with my experience! all of the employees were inviting and approachable, and seemed very passionate about making me comfortable + happy with my tattoo and my …

Loran Thompson

Chris was absolutely awesome! He did mine and my husbands tattoos today on our honeymoon and we couldn’t be more pleased with his work. We will be back next year on our anniversary for another tattoo by Chris!!

Ariana Dome

My husband and I got our first tattoos from Chris. He was amazing and did a even more amazing tattoo for us. He listened to what we wanted and exceeded our expectations.

Cockappella at USC

I had a great experience at Broken Lantern. The staff is accommodating and willing to work with your ideas and schedule. Shane was amazing and did everything he could to make my idea a reality. His work is amazing!

Taylor Rampersad

This place is absolutely amazing! All of the staff are so nice and helpful. Chris Jones made the whole experience as painless and enjoyful as possible. He’s very quick,talented, kind and efficient. Highly recommend

Steven Parker

This was the best tattoo experience I have ever had. I am not from the area but like to get a tattoo everywhere I go, after reading the reviews I knew I wanted to give this shop a try. I called to see if they took walk-ins and was informed they do 7 days a week on a first come first served basis. When I walked through the door I was immediately greeted by Cameron. He was very patient as we talked through my ideas and collaborated to make an image that best translated to a tattoo. Cameron was very knowledgeable about the process of tattooing and thoroughly explained everything to me. Once we sized up the piece he was able to give me a price quote before I was obligated to do anything, I never once felt pressured. We went through the artist portfolios and I was very impressed with the caliber of talent at this shop. Honestly I don't think you could go wrong with any of them. While they could not get me in immediately I was able to schedule an appointment for later that day, with Glenn. I was very fortunate as I found out later that he was voted the best tattoo artist in Charleston and can be booked out pretty far. He took the design that me and Cameron had talked about it and really made it his own. Glenn was so friendly during the entire process and made for great conversation. Most importantly the tattoo came out absolutely amazing. The attention to detail and execution where top notch. Clean environment, clean work, fair pricing. I will forever recommend this shop to anyone that asks, and will make it a point to stop by whenever I am back in town. Thank you so much Broken Lantern!

James Niosi

Relaxing atmosphere and great artists, coming back asap!

Amy Speed

Great experience, awesome vibe, fantastic art!!! If you want a good tattoo I 100 percent recommend this place! Go see Chris Jones he did a awesome one on me!

Cody Pendley

The Broken Lantern Tattoo shop is the best! The atmosphere is super chill and their artists are top notch. Just left my appointment and I am more than satisfied with Chris Jones' work! I will never go anywhere else! I have recommended a friend there and her new ink is flawless as well!

Sonja Echtler

I was visiting Folly Beach and just tried my luck on my way back to Greenville. Got my first walk in tattoo (up until now, walk in never worked for me anywhere , because they were fully booked). Chris did an awesome job! Thanks for being a part of my "souvenir" that I'll have forever and I'm sure at some point it will help me remember where I travelled to

jimi verrier

I didn't end up getting work the day I went in, however the staff was very friendly, the shop was nice and clean, and they def had their act together, as a good tattoo shop should. Would have gotten work done, but there is always a wait for a good artist, and I was only in town for a few days. Great shop!!

Derick Edge

Chris did our Tattoo and he was absolutely amazing. The tattoo came out perfectly. He wasn’t heavy-handed or anything it was an absolute beautiful piece we definitely will be back next year for our one year wedding anniversary to get our next tattoo done byChris

Emily Moreno

I’ve been looking for a quality studio in Charleston to get some new tattoos. Saw some good reviews on google and gave this place a shot. Broken Lantern is honestly AMAZING. The manager is very patient and helpful, and won’t get irritated if you want to change up the style, font, etc. a million times! The establishment is very clean and the employees make you feel very comfortable. They make you feel like a friend instead of a client they just want money out of. They accept walk-ins too which is great, especially for someone who has a tight schedule. Not to mention the prices are extremely fair. Chris is STELLAR! I got a quote on my arm and I wanted very thin lines and they are crazy thin, seriously you could cut with the lines, they are SHARP! Way above my expectations. Chris has the lightest hands, I would definitely recommend him, but I’ve had other artists do pieces on me too and they are awesome as well. Such a great experience every time, they make you want to keep coming back for more! I bring a new friend every time and they say the same thing, they love this place! I plan on getting a realistic landscape piece next. I can’t say enough good things about this place. Thankful I found this gem! Thanks guys!

Dori Smith

For the last several months I've been coming to Broken Lantern Tattoo and getting work done by Kat. Every time is a great experience. The staff are very welcoming, friendly, professional and accommodating. Scheduling is easy and I am always comfortable while I'm here.
