Great experiences! The best shop in LA!. I have gotten 4 tattoos from Cole now, and I couldn't be happier with not only the quality of his work, but also the professionalism and enthusiasm with which he approaches his job. He always gets very excited when you approach him with an idea, and he's a genuinely nice guy....in fact, everyone that works in the shop are really cool, laid back, and non-pretentious....highly recommended!!
Cole's the man!. Everyone in this shop is extremely talented, but my favorite artist is Cole. Great idea's, great art! The entire shop is great and everyone makes you feel welcomed. The banter around the shop is so funny, you have to hold in laughs so you don't move. Great environment, great people! I recommend this spot for a first tattoo or a 50th tattoo!
FRANK!. I came in to Frank with an old tattoo that I wanted touched up and added onto. Frank has the most amazing use of color and he suggested some options for me that are more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. His linework is so precise and the art he did was perfect for me. He puts so much care into each part of the process, it makes it such a great experience. The shop has such a great welcoming atmosphere, you can see yourself wanting to stop by and hang out every weekend. He's tattooed my friends too and he's just an incredible versatile artist.
2nd to None in LA! 3 artists have inked me... so far!.
I have been tattooed by Frank Allen, Cole Strem and by Madison Stone, all AMAZING! I am so blessed to have met such a great crowd and am proud to call this place the only place who will ever tattoo me again! I hope to add the rest of the artists to my body of artwork.
VERY reasonably priced for the quality of work, amazing artists who love their work and don't just do it 'till something else comes around' like some. There is a passion and frendship amongst the artists you won't find other places. We have told all our friends and will be flying from PA to get more work done!
Free touch ups, always ensure everything is great and you are happy for the long term! These guys and girl are the best I have seen!
Franklin is the Man!. Madison Tattoo Shoppe is a real chill spot. Franklin is the coolest dude and an amazing artist who will stay late or go the extra mile to ensure that your tattoo comes out awesome and that you get exactly what you want. He is a Mind Reader ! Definitely recommend Franklin to anyone and everyone! A+
Great Place / Cole is off the hook.
Cool Place. Laid back atmosphere.
Got a TAT from Cole Strem and it's amazing!!!! I had a concept and Cole collaborated with me to come up with different ideas to get exactly what I wanted. Can't wait to have him do my next Tattoo!
My Favorite Tattoo Shop!.
I got my last tattoo from Cole Strem at Madison Tattoo shop. It was by far my best tattoo experience. The shop is really clean, nicely decorated, the the whole crew there are awesome- Very welcoming and unintimidating!
Cole was ready at my scheduled appointment time (which in my experience is super rare for tattoo artists). He also took plenty of time in prior consultations to make sure he had a very clear idea of exactly what I wanted. My tattoo turned out absolutely beautiful, and I get compliments on it almost daily. I plan on getting all of my future tattoos from him. if you know exactly what you want, he can do it, but do take the time to check out his portfolio cause he has some sick ideas! Thank you so much!!!!
Love this shop! Cole Strem is the best!!. I love it here. Cole Strem did 2 tattoos for me and they are the best work I have ever had done. I am always getting compliments on them where ever I go! He is such a great guy to talk to and makes you feel at home. He had so much fun doing the tattoos and made it such an enjoyable experience for me. I already have another tattoo in mind and I know that Cole is definitely the right guy for the job!!! I have recommended him before, and I will continue to do so.
Love Cole Strems Work. Cole Strem did my last tattoo and its my fave of all my tats! He worked so well on helping create exactly what i wanted doing his own artwork I am so happy I made the choice to go here and have decided for anymore future tats this is the only place i will go and cole is the only one i will see! thank you so much for having such a clean and awesome tat shop!
COLE STREM ROCKS!!!!. This place is awesome!!! The atmosphere is very relaxing, extremely clean, fun and professional. COLE STREM has done 3 pieces for me and I LOVE THEM!!! He is a very talented artist and very creative! Everyone at this shop is incredible, I will never go anywhere else!
