“Big City Body Art” has been providing quality tattoo services to customers since 1998. Since that time, they have been transforming the way people perceive tattoos. “We are taking tattoo art and customer service to a new level,” says owner Brian Price. “We are leaving all the old stuff behind, at least for now, at our shop.”

Since opening his shop, Price has worked hard to set up a unique atmosphere to attract customers and give them a view of what’s available in his body art. They offer classic American tattoos and contemporary styles with a lot of variety. The goal has always been to bring the best tattoo art to the people of Laurel. Price proudly states, “The goal is to show people that art is more than just getting a tattoo.”

When you look around the city, you see a city filled with many tattoo shops. Price is proud to say that he is the only tattoo artist in town. He feels very fortunate and proud to be an artist. As an artist, he strives to provide his clientele with the best tattoo designs available. Customers know that if they want something unique, they should get a customized tattoo. Price explains, “We set the standard high for our customers. We truly believe that originality and uniqueness make your tattoo special.”

City Body Art carries only the best tattoo designs and artwork available. Most of their designs have never been printed on the body and are one-of-a-kind pieces of art. They are carefully researched and created by some of the world’s top tattoo artists. Price assures that his customers will be happy with their tattoos. He emphasizes, “We only print designs that are spectacular.”

In addition to being the only one-of-a-kind, these works of art are also made to order to fit the customer’s exact body size and shape. Price is confident in the quality of his work and says of his customers, “I have found that our customers appreciate the fact that we take the time to make each design uniquely ours. Our customers are very pleased with our results.”

For Price, creating unique body art is all about making something stand out. “I love to create new designs that will have people talking. The designs I have come up with have gotten attention from many people. My favorite part is that most of my customers get personal with their tattoos.” He loves to tell his story and share how he became a tattoo artist.

The uniqueness of a tattoo in the hands of a master artist is sure to draw positive comments from others. City Body Art touts many styles of tattoo including Celtic, tribal, Japanese, floral, back, sleeve, and arm tattoos. All city designs are made to measure to ensure that the tattoo will lie flat against the body. Their art is made by some of the world’s top tattoo artists to meet the exacting needs of their customers.

City Body Art prides itself on using only the best tattoo ink available. The quality of the ink is important to the durability of the finished piece. It is also important to look at the history of the artist that created the city body art. Is the artist well trained and experienced in the body art he or she is creating? If so, the finished piece may be in a class of its own.

Each design that is created by city artists is truly a work of art. Each customer is given total freedom to choose the color and style of the body art in which they want to have. The choices include everything from color to location on the body. This flexibility makes it easy for anyone to have a city tattoo that fits their life and personality. Tattoos can provide a lifetime of joy to the person who wears them.

This means that each customer is given many options and a variety of body art to choose from. The staff strives to make sure each customer is happy with their decision. They are there to listen to concerns and questions and ensure the customer has an enjoyable experience when choosing the perfect tattoo design.
