2 of the best tattoos I have came from your artists. I get the most compliments on my larger of the two. It was a custom tattoo after my best friends death. The work is stunning, still looks brand new almost 10 years later. I highly recommend the Shining Star for all your tattoo needs.

All I want to say I was one of the first few tattooed at Shing Star, Tony did a great job and for sure I have an original on my back.

Very pleased! Did a lot of research on the Shining Star and other parlors before calling (three times) to ask pricing for the tattoos and I am glad we picked here. Very knowledgeable staff and a friendly place, felt like we were accepted into the family! Clean, cozy, environment. Dave made my nervous sister ease up and Will did a great job with my mom's and my tattoo! Thank you again!

I went in yesterday with a crappy design i drew myself, I talked to Shawn and he told me he had an awesome idea for my tattoo to he drew out a small basic sketch and free handed the tattoo! it took 3 hours to finish and when i finally got to see it was a beautiful work of art! I have a universe on my back and it's all thanks to Shawn, I am sooo happy!

I've had 3 experiences with Shining Star now, and have nothing but amazing things to say, particularly about Heidi. I went there about a month ago to get my rook pierced, and she did an amazing job. I was in and out of there in under 10 minutes. Then 2 days ago I went back to her, looking for another piercing. I was unsure of exactly what I wanted, and she spent a good 15 minutes showing me pictures of what she could do, and helping me choose. I eventually decided on getting my snug pierced. Again, she was so quick and did a great job. She used a smaller barbell, and my ear end up swelling and pushing up against it causing a lot of pain. So I went back today to see if she could look at it and we could switch it out with a longer barbell. Although it was the most painful experience I've ever had, she was great. She was super gentle, and let me take a break to breathe for a minute every time it got really bad. It probably took about 20 minutes, but we finally got the other barbell in. She didn't even charge me for that, she just wanted me to not be in such horrible pain. The shop itself is very clean and professional. I wouldn't recommend going anywhere else.

No waiting. In and out in minutes. Got a nose piercing & amazed that it was relatively pain free compared to the first time I got it done in downtown Boston with a gun. She was good! If I decide on that tatatto I'll get it there. Oh, and woke up the mornong woithout all that soreness. Yeah!

I am looking to get a tattoo in tribute to my mother and her battle through 3 years of breast cancer. Luckily she is well and cancer free now. When I asked where to get a tattoo around the north shore area, all of my friends suggested to go here! So I am, and I am very excited!

I was taken to the best of the best when I decided to get inked. Tony and my dad (DJ) were friends long before I was ever thought about. It was truly an honor and priviledge to know him. I'm so happy to see his legacy live on. Keep up the good work everyone!

Ive been searching all over Mass for a good tattoo artist to do my mothers breast cancer tribute tat. And after I seeing what The Shining Star has to offer, They are hands down the VERY BEST in Mass. No one is on there level! kl

I've heard many good things about your tattoo shop, and Shawn, your work is excellent. My friend Bethany got a couple tattoos from you and highly recommends that I go to you for my first tattoo. I hope to visit the shop soon, hopefully around Christmas time! Take care
