I love Southpaw! My husband and I both have had work done and the place is outstanding. Low was awesome, in that, he made sure I received the tattoo I wanted and made sure I was comfortable for my 4 hour session. Brennan made sure I was comfortable and gave me soda the whole time and Jr. was also very attentive and kept me laughing. Brian did some work for my hubby and really nailed the Houston Texans coloring that my hubby wanted. I recommend South Paw Tattooing to anyone and everyone. The shop is clean, the artists are professional and personable. I will not go to any other tattoo shop in San Antonio if I want the best work done!! YOU GUYS ROCK!!!!
I know why they have been in business for over 20 years. This tattoo studio is professional and very friendly. All the artists here do amazing work. I have even witnessed clients come in to have work corrected that other shops have done. Veronica "Lunchbox", has created two custom tattoos for me. One of these, was a portrait. My cousin that lives in Corpus Christi was very happy with her tattoo and plans to get another during her next visit. This is the best studio to get a piercing or tattoo. Trust you will be happy with the masterpiece you get.
Will Keep going back! – These people are still amazing. The faces have changed since the last time I was there, but the atmosphere has not! Love going in there. Was greeted as soon as I walked through the door. Lunchbox took my Idea and made something wonderful. Thanks again!
My Experience With Matt Was Amazing! – I went in with a very open mind. I knew what I wanted, and AS SOON as I walked through the door, I was greeted. I have been there before, and all the artists are talented, but when I got a piece done in the crease of my elbow, Matt made it very painless, and very fun! I strongly encourage any, and everybody to go there. he did a beautiful job on my artwork and has made me very happy. I will only go to him from now on! Thank you so much Matt!
Wonderful Work Again! – I have been having work done by Southpaw for at least 8 years. Tim did an entire backpiece that he designed after I told him what I wanted. He is now retired but I have wonderful art from him.
I buried my brother on the 23rd of Aug. and my other breother 18 yrs ago. I went in with my idea sketches to have two memorial tats done. Matt did a fantastic job of translating my inept drawing to a work of art. I could not be more pleased.
I'm reading complaints here of overcharge and such...umm..guess what folks Good tats aren't cheap, and cheap tats are rarely good.
Great Artists – I have to disagree with some of these comments, i also went to southpaw for my first tattoo and JR did it. that day i left home happy, i was very satisfied i thought he did a great job and im still happy with my decision on going to southpaw and having JR do my tattoo. he used all kinds of bright colors and it pieced together just perfectly. i do agree they overcharge a little there, but JR does great work.
bad ink – southpaw on pat booker is where I got my first tattoo and JR is a nice enough guy but the tattoo ink looks like its all bunch up. also when light shine on it you can see the scaring like it's too deep. he went over the same area a couple times and no ink came out so it scarred me up. Also his sidekick is so jelouse of any woman cause he thinks he is protecting his mother, that he sits there with an attitude the whole time. . I won't go back and I hate my tattoo. It's a pretty large one too so I'm very unhappy
Awesome tattoo artist – you werent complaining when u were sitting in his chair getting tattooed, or when u were calling and texting him to work on ur tat..... I think u were just wanting alittle more than a tattoo, sorry he dont leave home without me... and as for him being a shi##y artist, I have to disagree with that and I think there are plenty of people who would disagree wit it also. he is one of the most talented people i know he puts his heart and soul into each piece he does. so if u want a kicka## tattoo, come see J.R you will be satisfied when u leave!!
JR is a horrible tattoo artist – Jr is a shit$y artist, he messed up my half sleeve BAD! Do not use JR, if he hasnt screwed your tat up your lucky get out now, he steals customers, he lies and he talk sh$t if you dont tip, he over charges and does NOT do good work. I learned the hard way. I now use Dayton ( thank god) I finally went with my gut and fired JR. If you must use southpaw get tattooed by MATT, JR is the worst artist I've seen in this town. Dont make the same mistake I did.
We are back – JR and Matt are now back at southpaw so if u want some good work go ahead and come see us
