  • I had my first tattoo here and definitely not my last! I am very satisfied with my tattoo, Noriel did an amazing job! He was very patient and very attentive to details! A true artist indeed 🔥 . I recommend him to do your tattoo! The experience was 💯 worth it! The staff were very friendly and accomodating. The shop is new, clean and cozy. The needles are disposable, the materials are clean and working area is sanitized before and after every tattoo session, so safety is highly prioritize. If you consider having a tattoo, then  "Needle Z tattoo and piercing " is  💯 the place to be!

    Awesome job by Joco on a nordic tattoo I had done at Needle Z today. Great attention to detail. Also, hats off to the amazing team. Friendly and very accommodating. It was a pleasure meeting you all. I will definitely make an effort to drop by when I'm back in the Philippines. All the best with your new shop! 👍👍

  • Simply the best in Ph. My wife came up with the idea for the leg wrap tattoo. The artist took all her ideas and did this free hand design better than I could have imagined. Very accomodating to foreigners. Also, they gave me chocolate cake, which was nice!

    Great piece by Dado on my arm! I am super happy with it and I was pleasantly impressed with the quality and the details. Easy and fast process from the day I walk in to how we scheduled the 3 sessions and we got it done! Definitely I am going back for my next art there! Extremely professional and super friendly staff as well!!!!
