    Got my first “shop” tattoo here and I could not have asked for a better experience. My artist OneFeather was amazing, she took my design home and really worked on it. I could not be happier with the tattoo, it’s three months old and still looks beautiful! It was a cover up and I’m still amazed that the old tattoo isn’t there! It is a pricey shop compared to others, but it is honestly worth every penny when you are working on something so permanent. Every person there worked to make their clients feel comfortable and have fun it was a great atmosphere along with being sterile and safe.

    I’ve gotten tattoos from previous shops but I will never go any where else again. I agree with the other reviewers I have never been to a shop so clean, and so private. They were very affordable and the artwork around the shop is phenomenal.

    Our tattoo artist was Gerardo, and I’ve never had any one else tattoo me with so much passion about what he does. I felt so comfortable and confident in what he was doing I’ll definitely be back for more. His lines are precise and now I wish I would’ve found this shop years ago.

    Bottom line: great artists and people, great shop, and great prices.

    Great place to get piercings done! Hands down!
    I’m 16, a nervous Nelly, and a cheapskate so finding a piercing parlor that fits my needs is a bit tough.

    I needed to find a clean parlor, and Moving Shadow Ink is that and more! Never have I seen such a clean, welcoming facility. That to me was one of the biggest factors that made me love the shop. Germs are icky, like super icky. And everything at the shop looked germ free. Even the tools were sterilized to the T.

    Lexie, the super sweet, gentle lady who pierced me, was terrific. She was so calm and very thorough. Every question I had (and trust me, there was a whole list) she had a clear, definitive answer. The whole staff seemed warm and welcoming too!

    And paying twenty-two bucks for all that?! You can’t find that deal anywhere else. Maybe you can, but you can’t have this nice of an experience.

    Honestly, if you are between the fence of getting a piercing done at this shop or at another, go for MSI because the cleanliness is just inviting. I wouldn’t lie to you. You’ll love it!

    The premier tattoo shop in Milwaukee! В Moving Shadow does not only have an award winning tattoo artist as a owner (Mario Z), but good hospitality that will compliment the experience you will have at Moving Shadow. В The shop is as clean as their image. В I wouldnt’t go anywhere else or recommend anywhere else. В Moving shadow is not your typical Southside shop. В Mario and his staff hold themselves to a higher standard than all other shops I’ve been in. В I rate moving Shadow an A+ and hope to see big things in the future. В I will not be going anywhere else for my tattoos neither will my friends and family..

    This is a pretty new shop in town but already by far the best. They’ve actually taken home two awards this year for the Best in MIlwaukee! There’s a great, comfortable lobby, good service and most importantly amazing tattoos! Every artist there is talented at drawing and all about creating custom work, which sets them apart from the rest of the shops around. I’d be on the lookout to see these guys doing some amazing things in the near future..

    I’d recommend anyone to get tattooed there, the customer care makes even a firsttime experience comfortable.

    The best of the class.

    I recently had some ink done by Mario, which I like to say is done with the “Mario Flair” or “spin” which is a design that is given to him and then he puts his own spin into it thus turning the end result into something great.

    If you are looking to get some fantastic ink, the artists at Moving Shadow Ink are the one’s to see. The shop is owned by Mario Zapata who is an extremely gifted artist. He specializes in wildlife, however his work it truly over the top!!

    Although the art of tattooing produces images, an artist is more than an image maker, more than an illusionist. A great artist is a master of lines and shape-a draftsman of color. Such an artist can arrange pigments on skin so that they are transformed into light & shadow, day and night, space and objects, bodies or movement.

    Great artists dip their needles not into ink but into light, shadow and reflections. Knowing how to understand, contemplate, and love a work of art is just important as knowing how to create beauty.

    You may never have heard of (MSI) Moving Shadow Ink before, and you will never forget them after your visit. Mario Z. wasn’t given this talent by any apprenticeship, or some art school; he was born with this gift. He has also done paintings that have appeared in local art galleries.

    They are on facebook, and welcome both ink-virgins, as well as seasoned ink-junkies.
