IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO GET A NEW TATTOO, PLEASE ASK YOURSELF: "WHY WOULD I WANT TO GET TATTOOED AT A "SHOP" WITH ALL THE DISCOMFORT THAT ENTAILS: THE ANONYMOUS AND ANNOYED/EGOTISTICAL TATTOOERS, THE LOUD ABRASIVE ATMOSPHERE, AND HALF WALL OR NO WALL BOOTHS WITH LITTLE OR NO PRIVACY?" I, GENTLE JOSH MAKOWSKI, OFFER YOU AN ALTERNATIVE AT KARMA TATTOO STUDIO: A CONSISTENT AND RESPECTABLE AWARD WINNING ARTIST WITH OVER 21 YEARS EXPERIENCE, WHOSE BOOKS ARE NEVER "CLOSED" (I CAN USUALLY GET YOU IN WITHIN A WEEK OR SO DEPENDING ON THE SEASON), AND A CLEAN, PRIVATE ENVIRONMENT WHERE YOU ARE THE SOLE FOCUS OF THE ARTIST. NO RINGING PHONES, BLASTING MUSIC (NOT TO MENTION THE "LOOKIE LOOS" THAT TATTOO SHOPS TEND TO ATTRACT), AND NEVER ENDING SMOKE BREAKS THAT ONLY MAKE THE TATTOO HURT WORSE AND TAKE LONGER!!
WITH GENTLE JOSH MAKOWSKI AT KARMA TATTOO STUDIO, YOU ALWAYS KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO GET: A HIGH QUALITY TATTOO EXPERIENCE, BASED UPON MUTUAL COURTESY BETWEEN THE CLIENT AND ARTIST, WHERE YOUR COMFORT AND SATISFACTION IS A TOP PRIORITY!
most "shops" wont give you a cost quote over the phone. That's balogney! text me the details, size, and area you want to get your new tattoo to 8143847861
and i will get back to you asap with a quote!
currently hourly rate for large work is 140 per hour. Smaller work quoted out.
GENTLE JOSH STARTED TATTOOING IN 1998. APPRENTICED BY "GYPSY" MIKE AND MENTORED BY DAVE STEELE.
AFTER WORKING AT INK ASSASSINS AND MANAGING IT FOR A YEAR, HE BECAME DISILLUSIONED WITH THE STREET SHOP ATMOSPHERE AND EGO, AS WELL AS GENERAL DISRESPECT FOR THE CLIENT, HE DECIDED TO OPEN KARMA, ERIES FIRST ALL CUSTOM TATTOO STUDIO.
12 YEARS LATER, JOSH FEELS THAT HE IS DOING THE BEST WORK OF HIS CAREER. GENTLE JOSH HAS APPRENTICED MANY WELL KNOWN AND SUCCESSFUL ARTISTS.
ALTHOUGH HE HAS A DEFINITE STYLE, GENTLE IS A WELL ROUNDED ARTIST WHO CAN WORK WITH JUST ABOUT ANY IDEA YOU CAN IMAGINE. PRESSED TO NAME IT HE WOULD CALL HIS STYLE "JAPANESE AMERICAN FUSION".
GENTLES CURRENT RATE IS 140 USD PER HOUR WITH A 80 DOLLAR MINIMUM. A 30 DOLLAR NONREFUNDABLE DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED. CONTACT BEFORE MAKING DEPOSIT TEXT 814-384-7861

I recently got my first tattoo done by Gentle Josh and am so incredibly happy with it. He was meticulous, and I just love his color and work! He was very easy to work with leading up to it since I was nervous and he also had a very calm/clean environment which made everything that much better! Would recommend 110%
Josh is an amazing artist and great person in general, the environment is super relaxing and welcoming to anyone looking to have a first tattoo done or one to add to their collection, I would highly recommend him to anyone, he's very professional and prompt with his responses and work, texting him works the best and seems to be the best way of setting up an appointment, please check him out!
My best friend and I got tattoos a few weeks ago and had a great experience. Josh was easy to work with, listened to what we wanted and drew up the design in no time. I was referred to Karma by a friend and won't hesitate to refer them to others!
