Mariya was very amazing! She gives good advice about placement and how a tattoo might turn out to be and made how comfortable I was a priority. I would definitely come back for another tattoo, and would recommend anyone else to go to her! Her studio is small and private, and a cozy feel. The pricing is also fair, and definitely worth the quality of the art and her service!

This was my 2nd tattoo overall, and I’m so grateful to have stumbled upon Studio M when doing a Google search. Mariya’s expertise, transparency, and collaboration in discussing design, placement, and aftercare are incredible. The studio is private, clean, and professional. I was amazed by what she was able to conjure up so quickly and accurately on my shoulder blade—even better than I pictured it. Whether you’re new to tattoos or looking to continue your sleeve, I definitely recommend Studio M!

I got my first tattoo and it couldn’t have been a better experience. Mariya was really patient with me, made sure my tattoo was in the perfect position and she’s really easy to talk to. You are in a room with just you and her, which is perfect for people like me who have anxiety being around lots of people, and she lets you use her Apple TV to play shows off Hulu, Netflix etc, which helps you to relax and get your mind off any pain you might feel from being tattooed. I’ll be going back soon for tattoo #2!
