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

Clean, yes I said CLEAN! Very, So impressed with every single aspect of this place.

The work was clean and beautiful. LOVE! Amazing place-look... More

I really enjoyed getting my tattoo, a purple heart tribute to my grandfather, by renowned local artist Andy Howl. Even though it hurt (ouch!) Andy did everything he could to keep me comfortable. The atmosphere is very pro, spacious, and clean...the staff is friendly and intelligent...and the artwork/trinkets/posters that change often make visiting the shop a full art experience, not... More

I decided to finally get my first tattoo the summer of 2011, and embarked on a quest to find the best place to take this on. After searching for the "best tattoo" shop in my area, I came upon HOWL Gallery/Tattoo. I browsed their website, and was quickly convinced that I'd found the right place for me. I used their... More

HOWL is one of the most well presented and professional Tattoo Shop/Art Galleries that I have seen, and all with a welcoming and laid-back attitude. I have been fortunate enough to participate in couple of gallery shows and it is amazing how many people come out to the events. Alaina and Andy Howl do a great job of mixing it... More

Very contemporary and spacious art gallery mixed with a high end custom tattoo studio. Art openings on first Fridays. Local bands perform during music walk on third Fridays. Worth a trip downtown if you like lowbrow culture and tattoos.

I just received my first tattoo on Thursday, May 31, 2012, from Stevie Bananas at Howl Gallery in Ft. Myers, Florida. I must say, the entire process was an outstanding experience. The employees are great to work with, the gallery (it's also an art gallery) is first rate and the atmosphere really puts one at ease. Steve worked with me... More
