I got my tattoo on 03/01/2022 from Josh Presley, and he was great. I've had two tattoos from another shop previously, and in comparison, I had a much better and more personalized experience here at Momentum Tattoo. Josh took my wants and requests into consideration when working through the design, and came up with a great concept that I'm happy with. The 9 hour session went by feeling more like 4 hours, as Josh was able to hold an interesting conversation (without talking too much) and he kept my comfort in mind for the entire tattoo. We played music for each other, talked about Liam Neeson, and also talked about future concepts and designs we might like to work through together. I would recommend Josh for anyone looking to get a tattoo, whether it's your first or your 30th, as Josh is great to work with, and did everything he could to get me the best tattoo possible.
I had a tattoo with Amanda today and she was stellar! Her style is so cute and I knew she'd know just what to draw up for me when I said I wanted a "llama with Elvis hair". I was so excited as soon as she showed me the drawing. She made the whole tattoo so comfortable and was super enjoyable to sit and talk to. The shop was clean, welcoming, and just all around a great environment. I highly recommend this shop in Tampa!
Josh is an incredible artist and super detail-oriented. I travelled from Canada to get work done by him and I'm so glad I did. He made me feel very comfortable through the whole session and I couldn't be happier with my tattoo. Great, clean shop, too. I highly recommend Momentum!
My first experience with Mark was decent he did a black forearm piece for me and I was satisfied with the results so I went back for more work on a later date. We did a session and I Was eager to do another being that I wanted a lot of work done. and he admittedly told me he had a day available and wouldn't let me get it. And told me "I get you're excited but u need to be patient" and was basically recommending that I come in once a month. The whole vibe felt condescending to say the least. I also feel that mark is lazy being that he said "I don't want to sweat when I work". I tried to email momentum requesting a new artist with no response so I just ended up taking a loss on my deposit. I ended up going to DC society ink and having this guy finish his work for him. And he literally free handed a design that was better than his drawing. They're are some good artist at momentum but I would strongly say Mark is not at the top of that list.
I was fortunate enough to stumble upon Billy's instagram and had back to back sessions last week. I can tell you that there was a couple months wait to get book but IT IS SO WORTH THE WAIT. He makes you as comfortable as possible with TV, music, etc. He talks you through EVERY step of your tattoo and what he plans to do through the session. His work speaks for its self and Im already getting compliments on a tattoo that only has the black shading done. The other artist were stopping in and talking to him and also talked to me. They seemed super friendly and personable also. 10/10 would recommend!
