  2. Shane was absolutely amazing!! He did my cover up about 3 weeks ago now. He is the ONLY artist who took the challenge of my pain in the ass cover up and said he could do it with confidence! Can’t even tell it’s a cover up and did it exactly how I wanted! Definitely a satisfied customer and plan to visit Shane for my next tattooing needs (:
