Me, my sister, and a close friend went to One Drop for their Black History Month tattoo special. We had a great time looking at awesome artwork and we also got tattoos. Angelena did an awesome job on my Adinkra tattoo! It’s healed very nicely and I barely had any discomfort during the healing process. She did a great job, I’ll definitely be back for more ink 🙂

I came from Chattanooga just because of the customer service from Aaron. He was quick to respond to me and super nice. And he helped me find an artist who suited my needs for my black and grey half sleeve built around a previous tattooed cross. Dee is the artist, and she deserves just as much credit. I could not be happier with my piece and am already planning on coming back to One Drop Ink and Dee to finish my sleeve. She totally is the best artist I have been too. Also, the rest of the staff were friendly and talkative which creates a great atmosphere. I will be driving 2 hours everytime I need a tattoo! Thanks One Drop Ink. And thank you Dee.

I have been to many tattoo shops and none compare to this one. Everyone is friendly and professional, the music selection creates a great ambiance. I never had a tattoo artist sit down with me and ask me what I wanted the way these artist do. None of my tattoos from here can be created by anyone else as they are uniquely created and mine!If you are looking for art this is the place, no google copy and pasting at this shop!!

Elisheba did a small memorial tattoo for me. She is so wonderful! She designed a tattoo that was better than I had asked for, she is gentle, funny, and caring. AND I get compliments all the time, anyone who knew my husband knows exactly what the tattoo represents. Thank you friend!

My friends and I wanted to get our first tattoos while visiting Nashville on vacation. We decided on One Drop Ink after reading the reviews, and I couldn't be happier with our experience! Ol Skool took great care of us, and I think we laughed longer than any of our tattoos took to do. If you're visiting the area, this is the place to go to get some ink!
