I've been to the Howl gallery about a half dozen times over the last year. It has been good to see the addition of craft beer, an environment conducive to conversation and fabulous art. The opening about every month where the exhibits change are our favored times. Oh yes, don't forget that there are highly professional artist willing to ink... More

Nice gallery with very unique art. We enjoyed meeting the featured artist and discussing his art style during the Art Walk night. There is a good assortment of art and things for sale and the art changes often.

Not all the art in this cutting edge gallery is inked on the skin. They have great art exhibits that change every month or so. We've seen some really cool things here and met some amazing artists struggling to work in what is largely a cultural backwater. A highlight was an exhibit of sideshow art and freak show photographs.

Thank you Matt Lackey for taking a tattoo I've always hated and turning it into something beautiful and meaningful. You took an ugly cross and turned it into something that honored my deceased son. How do you say thank you for giving such a gift?! I am highly recommending this gallery and specifically Matt.

I got a half sleeve of roses done by Andy Howl, Owner of Howl Gallery tattoo. I will never go to another artist again. He is extremely talented and the atmosphere of Howl Gallery is awesome and all the artists and employees are extremely friendly. It's truly an experience to get a tattoo done here, and I will most certainly... More

Mandalin completely amazed me! I had my first trip to Florida in May, staying with friends. She put the bug in my ear about a tattoo in honor of the trip. I was to fly out on Saturday, so I waited until Thursday to visit Mandalin. Gave her my thoughts about having a gator tattoo, how she wanted it to... More
