Ears pierced and tattoo
I went in to get my third holes done on my ears and they were all so nice. Studio was extremely clean and you could tell they took their jobs serious but so friendly. I walked out feeling so comfortable with their service I booked a tattoo for the follow week. I’ve been holding off on this tattoo until I found a good artist. I knew I found the place. I showed Luis what I wanted and he tweaked it a little and did the BEST fine line dreamcatcher I could have ever expected. Highly recommend swinging in if you have been wanting work done. Thanks to all the staff for a great experience.

Rad Place
A special thank you to Martin for taking such good care of my son and doing a rad job on his first tattoo- It was a gift to him for his 16th birthday, I was a nervous wreck- and Maritn was a calming force. The end result is pretty awesome!!
I got my first tattoo at Papillon on our last visit to Sayultia- again, a great experience thanks to Spider.
Chops has a great group of artists AND humans working there! Thanks for everything.
(plus if it's good enough for Gabbi, then it's good enough for us)

Love Our Tattoos!
My husband and I get “souvenir” tattoos whenever we travel. We are both thrilled with the ones we received from this studio. My taco wearing a sombrero was everything I could have hoped for and more! My husband’s sugar skull tattoo is one of the most badass skulls I’ve ever seen! When we go back to Sayulita, we will definitely go back for more art!

Chops is the Best
My daughter and I have been traveling to Sayulita every year since she was 4...she'll be 18 in 2020. She'd been bugging me for a tattoo and, since I have several, it seemed pretty hypocritical to say no. Plus there was the added benefit that I had veto power on artwork and placement (trust me - she presented some ideas that I knew she would definitely regret in her 30's). We settled on a flower on the back of her neck. Easy to conceal - or show off - depending on hair. Chops was great! His art definitely had the Mexican flavor she wanted so it represented all of the amazing adventures we've had together in Mexico over the years. It healed beautifully.

Best Ink Experience
Hands down the coolest dudes in the biz. This was my second tattoo and it blew my first experience out of the water. I worked with Eric with a short window of time to come up with a start to a half sleeve/shoulder to elbow piece. Eric nailed it, what a G and phenomenal artist. Chops (his fam), the lady who manages the front and all their friends were too cool. Very clean, comfortable, private/genuine and most important, FUN. ALL LOVE

Nice work, nice vibes
Stopped in on the fly to have a piece behind my ear touched up. Chops was enthusiastic and friendly, did a great job and seemed like he had fun doing it! Very happy with the whole experience
