He’s down to earth, laid back, and very professional. Everyone at the shop is professional and fun to be around. Highly recommend renaissance tattoo!! Thank you Sean and renaissance tattoo for my beautiful art work!”

“Saw Sean today for a tattoo. Even when I went in for the initial consultation, everybody was super polite to me. The studio is clean and everybody there are straight professionals. Sean was amazing. He listened to what I had to say and was able to capture my vision into an amazing tattoo. He’s great to have a conversation with and made me feel like I was a friend and not just a customer. I can honestly say that I will be getting more tattoos from him. I currently have four tattoos and none of them have been done by the same artist. But I think I have found my forever artist.”
