100% RECOMMENDED – Tony Klett recently did tattoos of swallows on the back of my legs as a cover up - I simply cannot say enough good things about this guy - CREATIVE, TALENTED, SKILLED, PROFESSIONAL and a TRUE ARTIST - he provided excellent advice and performed great work throughout the process - you will quickly recognize and appreciate that Tony takes pride in his craft! He will not hesitate turning down a project if he doesn't believe it will turn out great, which, in my opinion, speaks volumes about his character and is an invaluable trait - he is not in the shop just to make money - he wants to create incredible art for you that will last a lifetime, and will take the time necessary to do it right. Example: initial discussions regarding my swallows centered around doing them in a traditional style, but, after working up some drawings and consulting with other artists, he realized this wouldn't be the best fit, and instead created new drawings that he believed would turn out much better - I was initially resistent to this suggested change in the plan, but, after listening to Tony's perspective and seeing his drawings, I realized he was completely right - I turned over control, and am extremely happy with the art he created! Bottom line - you can trust this guy - and his work is worth much more than the hourly rate. Moreover, the shop has a great vibe, and you can tell by the books of work in the shop and the galleries available online that all the artists are very talented - GO TO LOVE AND HATE!
Love and Hate-Best tattoo shop in AZ!! – If you are looking for a new tattoo or need a cover-up, Love and Hate is the place to go! They are a clean, respectable, easy-going tattoo shop. Owner Danny Ross is one of the best artists I have had they pleasure of meeting. He is o creative, and his work is truly AMAZING!!!!! I recommend them to everyone and anyone! Go check them out you'll see what I'm talking about! :)
Absolutely Phoenix's best kept secret!!! – Let me tell you about my first trip to Phoenix, I have been looking for quite some time for the perfect situation in which all things come together for the perfect Tattoo. Well run don't walk and visit Meg and Tony Klett at "Love and Hate Tattoo;s on Mcdowell st in Phoenix Arizona. This group of ARTIST have really strived for and reached the level of proffesionalism most have only wished for, Meg has done a great job with the place and without a doubt having reeled in Tony Klett was a great move. Tony is as calm as the the weather and the scenery outside is only challenged by the art that he creates inside, My piece was traditional and absolutely stunning, He made me feel like you should feel when making a decision as big as this one is. The art you put on yourself should be something that you really really enjoy and the piece I have now is truly a piece of art. Go see Tony, Sorry gotta run, time for my next appointment with Mr Klett. Thank's Meg great job!!!!
Did a cover up tattoo – Well, I can honestly say I am nothing short of thrilled with the job Danny did at Love Hate. I had a rather large poorly done tattoo done about 12 years ago. I wanted to cover it up with a sleeve but was very concerned with the size of my existing tattoo whether or not it would be possible and still look good. Wow, it is now about half way through and I still can not believe how well it was hidden in all the new work! What an artist! Thanks again, can not wait to finish this piece! Worth your time to check them out... glad I did and will continue to have him work on some new ideas for other tatt's.
Love & Hate Tattoo Parlor – The entire staff at Love and Hate are very professional. Every artist is very talented. I had my work done by Tony Klett. Not only is he artistic and creative, but he makes you feel comfortable with the design and process. His aftercare advice is the best I've ever had!! It's the only way I heal my tattoos now. Definitely go to this shop for any tattoo or piercing!
No hate - just love for this place. – I am mainly writing this review to emphasize my positive experience with artist Tony Klett at this shop. He has designed and tattooed two pieces for me, and I am highly pleased with the results. While his portfolio (accessible through his website) reflects a more traditional style of tattoo design - neo-traditional if you will - with bold lines and colors, I can speak from experience that he is also skilled in designing a tattoo in any style you might prefer. Experts agree: I've noticed at least a few convention awards on his wall. I have recommended him to a number of friends, and I am sure you would be eager to do the same after any interaction with him. If it's your first tattoo he will certainly put you at ease, and it you're a tattoo veteran add a TEK original to your collection.
Finally, I agree with the highly positive reviews of the shop. It is very clean, the staff has always been very professional, friendly, and skilled (in contrast to the one negative review, stating to be wary of which artist you choose). The wall decor and a television that plays a constant rotation of movies will entertain any friend you might bring along with you for moral support. Its got a great location in Phoenix, with a personal parking lot.
All in all, I can say nothing but good things about the shop and Tony.
Love and Hate is amazing – I recently visited Tony Klett at Love and Hate for my first tattoo and was wowed. The shop was extremely clean, organized and the staff is always friendly. Tony was very professional and respectful, an amazing artist and a lot of fun to work with. I am ecstatic with the outcome of my tattoo and have received multiple compliments in regards to how well it is done in just the few weeks I've had it. I would absolutely recommend Tony and Love and Hate to anybody looking for a an incredible tattoo and a great experience getting it.
Amazing Artist @ Love & Hate – I received my second tattoo from Eric last Friday. He is a great artist that has perfected his craft. He will give you a completly unique tattoo everytime! I will go anywhere he goes. This was my first visit to Love & Hate Tattoo. The shop has been cleaned up but is a bit crowded. But everyone there is friendly and you are sure to get a good laugh or two while you are there. I will return and would recommend Eric Skramstad to anyone who wants a real peice of art on their body, no matter how big or small!
exellent artwork – I went to Phoenix and got a tattoo at Love & Hate Tattoo Parlor, and Its some of the best work Ive ever seen. The shop was organized and clean and when it was time to get down to business it was all great from there. The artist that did my work was the super talented Danny Ross. In the quarters he works in was filled with artwork and pictures or work that proves his talent, He took his time and meticulously placed the letters and whatnot in place and made sure it was to my satisfaction. He was careful and professional and did a spectacular job. I highly recommend him to anybody who wants to get a tattoo by the best. He understands that a tattoo is for life and should be of the highest quality. Thank you Danny Ross, you have my up most respect. Your friend, Juan Wysong.
Clean shop, Dope artists, Great work. . . – By far the best shop I've been too. Shop is extremely clean, waiting room is sick with a flat screen and dvd player. Artisits are top of the line, I have had all my tattoos done by Eric and they are Perfect.
