I have known Brad and his crew for many years in business and personal life. I have ink from the "others" and have to say that they are the few regrets I have in life.
Sacred Art is, and always has been, the most professional and cleanest shop around. The artists are beyond competent and set the curve for all other artists in the area. From simple flash work to freehand and custom work these guys know what it takes to put out quality work.
Hix' statements are completely the polar opposition to the reality of Sacred Art. Find out for yourself ... walk into any shop and ask to see Health Dept evaluations or sterilization reports ... then go see Brad .. you won't be disappointed.
