I just received a terrific traditional sugar skull from chops and I couldn’t be happier with the service or the quality. Thanks for the work. And I look forward to my next piece with you next time

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

In good hands!
I have a number of tattoos and each one of them came with it's own experience. I can honestly say that getting tattooed by Chops has been my best tattoo experience to date. I truly felt that what I was getting was just as important to Chops as it is to me. He was extremely patient with me developing the design, he works like a true pro and his work is truly professional. By the time he was finished I was blown away by the quality and even more impressed after it healed. Generally tattoos look the best when they are super fresh but the healing process was very fast and the ink healed looking as it did the moment he finished. I would recommend Chops or any of his guest artists 100% and in fact the work he has done on me has inspired a number of my friends to book with him!
Thank you Chops!

The best Tattoo artist I have ever had the privilege of meeting!
Chops is hands down the best Tattoo artist that has ever worked on me. His steady hand fixed an old and ragged tattoo that I had gotten 20 years ago and made it a thousand times better. I then came back three months later and had him do a new one on my other arm. He was extremely professional and very attentive to my needs. He noticed I was getting a little woozy from the work before I did, and suggested we take a break and then after I felt better we got back to it, I apoligized to him for taking up to much of his time but he kept telling me it was all good.and that he was there to make sure my needs were met. I really can't express how good his work was and how much of an amazing person he is. I seriously will not let anybody else give me Ink ever again Chops is the MAN! So if your in Sayulita and thunkimg avout getting some ink do yourself a favor and go see Chops! Amd as for the negative posts on here all I can say is that person may need some profesional help because Chops is an AMAZINGLY good artist and person!

The best!
In November of this year Chops fixed a bad tatto that was over 20 years 0ld to how my mind truly pictured it. I do not have alot of ink so I am very particular on how it should be done. Chops is an artist with no equal as far as I am concerned. And he will be the only Tatto artist that will ever work on me again. He is also a very personable guy who will listen to your needs and will make sure you are doing good during the session. Simply put he is the Bomb!

Sayulita is damn lucky to have a master like Chops here!
Been living in Sayulita for 10 years now, a student of the needle. So stoked to have Chops bring his expertise and knowledge regarding all things tattoo - history, method, style, professionalism - to our little pueblo. He is the perfect fit for our town, amazing artist and family man. Thanks for the great work Chops, more to come.
