Seen his work. He does a great job from what I can tell. Is tazewell big enough for 2 tattoo shops though? Personally I think an apprentice can blow jennifers work outta the water.

Compared to the rednecks that buy there guys at the flea market and try to be Kat Von D, she does a fine job. But up against true artist and people that truly know the trade, her work at least most of it looks like a 6 month apprentice. She is artistic but doesn't have the basics down with a gun. Which works for her around here because people just don't care. Personally, I wouldnt let her tattoo my skin.

Al is the only other person beside paul I would let tattoo me. He has very clean and crisp lines and does not scar you up, like some of the work I've seen from ink spot. If u have big thick scabs then it wasn't done right. Scab should peel like a sunburn not like a stab wound.

Jen has pretty clean lines most of the time but if it isn't something she can download a stencil for you might as well forget it with her. If she has to draw it you are s.o.l. Al has some pretty good work and he is getting his prices down where he can compete with Jen. There is a new shop here now at Sandarella. Sandy trained with Paul back in the day and the guy she has is a great artist. Most of his designs are custom so therefore original. He has clean work and he has an excellent talent. Very clean and professional as well. And most of the time he will match or beat Jen or Al's prices withing reason. Lots of people here in town have been tattooed by him just ask around. Only reason more people don't know about him is word hasn't gotten around well yet.

I have seen his work and the lines are far from good. You get what you pay for and I would much rather pay a little more money than be stuck with a bad ink job.

Al is the best tattoo artist out there.He is very clean and does a great job on every tat. Can not find a better tattoo artist around. He is the only one i'll ever let tattoo me ever again.

All you have to do is check out both of their Facebook pages. The photos of their work is posted. The facebook sites are under their business names. It's clear from the photos that al is the better one.

Never see anybody at their shop but everybody I talk to goes to see Paul Gilpin. He has good rates. If you dont have money he will do it for whatever you want to give him! LOL Great tatoo person.

Pauls shop is now in his motorcycle shop, don't look to sanitary, and he doesn't care much if he does a tattoo or not. If your not a good looking GIRL. Forget about getting one,,and I here he and his wife are into mate swapping, plus he's so full of b.s. I don't care if you smile or not, all I want is a good tattoo. You get what you pay for. Or what you pay for by other means.

I have had a tattoo done by Paul and by Al both...Paul is the cheaper route to go, but the thing about being a girl is true with him. I would not want to go by myself and get a tattoo from Paul. He does do decent work, expecially free handed. Al on the other hand is 100% professinal. He does awsome work and his rates are good for the quality of work you get. He does smile sometimes, lol. I have a lot of different artist's work on me. Other artist include Rat from Craven Ink in Greeneville TN and Jessica from Ink Dreams in Morristown, TN, and my latest one was from a friend here at home (it was done with a real gun and all that stuff). The best by my opinon is Jessica in Morristown. She likes to do a lot of color and she does not charge more for more ink. 2nd on my list would have to be Al. I wish I could post pictures so you all could judge for yourself.
