WOW these guys aren't just tattooers THEY ARE ARTISTS...
I was looking to get a REAL piece of artwork... and I searched online and found thr BEST in Texas... I wanted some sick Biomech, and the guy working the counter was amazing.. he took his time with me and listened to what I wanted and suggested Jorge.. I made an appointment and thanks to JORGE, who drew what I wanted straight on me with a marker then tattooed it... It fits my body perfect and he didn't mind taking the time to draw it right on me and worked with what I wanted..
This shop is so beautiful and full of great original art on the walls, not that stupid mass produced crap.. If you want a REAL piece of art not just a "trendy" tattoo that anyone can do, then you need to go here.... I will never go any where ELSE!!!



TBA Rocks!

My husband and I both have numerous tattoos from various artists at Texas Body Art. Johnny and his staff are always friendly, professional, knowledgeable and talented. Ever since we found TBA we've never gone to another tat shop since. Love you guys!!

we drive 2 hours to get tattooed

by trinaG at Citysearch

We have been internet fans of the inkaholiks since like 3 years ago and finally got to meet them last month and it was the pleasure of my life.She is such a doll and the whole time we were there Inkaholik was running around organizing cleasning and ordering people to clean the place up.He knows how to run it.
These folks are first class and I love love love looking at Mizuz Pictures....


I like you dont do racial or gang tattoos

by swervinnsippin at Citysearch

this place was way different than i expected for a tattoo studio.Last one i went to was all rednecks and they didnt like my race i could tell.
Texas Body art was jammin some lil wayne and they all acted like i was just another person.
I am so glad i found this shop and I want to thank you guys for making me feel at home.


This is the onlyTexas body Art

by Skinhead98 at Citysearch

I have heard that the old shop they owned is copying the name and trying to get customers from you guys.
My uncle is a business lawyer and he said he will handle your case for you.
I like hanging out here all the time.

by missinfectious at Citysearch

Texas Body Art Gets My $$'s

by MrLzrd at Citysearch

TBA has a professional, friendly, casual atmosphere and outstanding artists. I'm currently working with Jason Coquell at TBA on my next tattoo. I've gotten over 30 hours of tattoo work from at least 9 tattoo shops over the years (first in 1991) and am very impressed with TX Body Art. We've also gotten our daughter's ear piercings and jewelry from TBA.

★★★★★ RUSS ROCKS!!!!!!

tim l. 5 Texas Body Art

i got the start of my sleeve done by RUSS BAGWELL. top notch guy! i told him the things i liked,then he just drew it up! i could have never imagined the things he came up with.
my tattoo is so nice,my wife(who hates tattoos) is going to get one by RUSS. the shop is big and has flat screens everywhere. this guy made things really easy. the price is well worth it and from the research i've done the rate is about the same everywhere..unless you get tattooed in one of those chop shops around Houston. BEWARE!!! TEXAS BODY ART IS THE ONLY PLACE TO TRUST YOUR BODY TO!! IF YOU GO GET TATTOOED BY RUSS!!

★★★★★ Amazing!

David Grey created a badass tattoo for me, all i did was walk in and I told him what I wanted and where and he freehanded the whole tattoo on my back. The service was great and everyone was friendly. I will be back soon!

I took my family in and i t was so busy we figured the people were waiting on something different since we passed a few shops to see what Texas Body Art was about...
I have never seen a tattoo studio set up so organized and friendly.
The customer service was top notch and we seen the portfolio of Johnny Jackson and were amazed at first glance.
Sadly enough we wont be getting tattooed for 2 months but I will be coming to this studio no doubt.
If you are looking for the best this is the place!

Best Artist Around...

by DanielleH1016 at Citysearch

Heard about AJ through a co-worker and thought i'd give him a shot, that was about 2 years ago, I've gotten several from him since.... and will continue to patron him as long as i have tattoos i want to get.... extremely talented, listens, and takes his time, Aj is extremely passionate about his work and it shows.....Cheap Tattoos arent ever good, and Good Tattoos are done by Aj and the TBA crew.... ;)...
  • Pros: honest, dependable, clean, amazing work


by Bswoon at Citysearch

  • Pros: amazing artwork,fun artist,clean and comfortable
  • Cons: pain??


Awesome Tattoos!

by tamialicia at Citysearch

I've gotten tattoos at Texas Body Art before and the guy who did my first two wasn't able to schedule me, so he recommended to a new artist at Texas Body Art, Jorge- He did an AMAZING job!!!!!!!! I Love my tattoo! I went in without a good picture and just told him I wanted a seahorse, so he started drawing! I was very picky, seeing as I'll have my tat the rest of my life! After being very paitent with me, Jorge had a drawing that I liked :) He did a great job with the artwork, taking his time and including all the details I wanted! I would definately recommend Jorge to anyone who wants a tattoo!!!!!!
  • Pros: clean place, custom art work


Amazing attention to detail...

by Jnine at Citysearch

I had my fourth tattoo done four days ago. This is the first tattoo done by A.J at Texas Body Art. I gave A.J a picture of what I somewhat wanted but I let him run with his own creativity as well. I am sooo glad I tattoo turned out better than I could of ever expected. His light gentle touch and attention to detail was amazing. The entire experience was awesome!!!! I went out the next night after getting my tattoo and I had so many compliments on the beautiful art created for my shoulder. My tattoo is healing nicely and I cannot wait for my next one. I plan on making an appointment with A.J very very soon!!! I cannot say enough great things about the entire operation ran out of that establishment. The entire staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. The parlor was extremely clean and sterile. A.J gave the best post op instructions of which out of the four tattoos I have had done, not one other artist from other shops gave any post op information. Texas Body Art and A.J kick A**!!!!!!! See ya Soon!!!!

The Best Place in Houston!!!

There are no words to describe the work that David did on my arm. I simply gave him ideas and he took them to the next level with his drawings!  I already had a couple small pieces on my arm and decided to go ahead and do a whole sleeve. If you want any black and gray work done, you need to see David. His black and gray work and lettering are out of this world.  It is not too often you find someone who takes as much pride in their work as he does and it is amazing! My whole experience at Texas Body Art was beyond great! All the employees were the nicest people I have ever met! They always made me feel comfortable and were very social with all clients. The bottom line is TBA is the place to go to get inked! No matter how far you have to drive, it will be worth is, trust me! My arm looks incredible from the work David did on it and I get at least two compliments a day on it. His prices always stayed within my budget and his work was always outstanding! David, I am beyond pleased with my sleeve and I have been and will always refer people to come see you and everyone else at TBA. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You!! Your work exceeded all my expectations!!

Thanks for everything,
Terry Gray

Hey just like to say thanks to Russ, dude I am so stoked with the work you did for me bringing my old work back to life. I can’t say enough good things about this shop and the people in it. It is so nice to finally find a shop with it all, friendly professional people who take pride in there work and do an awesome job. I would not hesitate to recommend the shop and Russ for the great work they do.
Thanks again RegardsWillie. C

LONNA SMITH  4-17-2010 from
I came in about 3 weeks ago for my 2nd tattoo… It had been about 11 years since I got my first tattoo and I decided that the second time around I wanted to know I was going to a quality place.  I researched tattoo parlors online searching for the best. I found multiple great reviews for Johnny Jackson’s Texas Body Art, so I gave them a ring… Russell helped me on the phone, and that evening when I came in Nate inked me up :D
The staff were very friendly and accommodating. I came in with a pretty good idea of what I wanted, but not sure how to pull it all together. Nate drew up a design directly on my foot and I loved it. The great reviews I had read were absolutely correct. These guys are awesome!!! Thanks again Nate… hope to see you again in a couple months for some more ink :D

by efrazier72 at Citysearch 12/16/09

I have lived in Houston for 8 years and have been trying to find an artists that I can trust and is artistic, and can provide you with the best tattoo. Before Texas Body Art, I was flying to California to get my tats.
Now...I will be a permanent and loyal customer and encourage anyone who is considering getting their first tat or additional tats, go see the people at Texas Body Art.
Johnny Jackson did an amazing job on my piece!!
Thanks Texas Body Art!
  • Pros: Very clean, professional, and excellent artists!

So HAPPY with my Virgin Mary Tattoo!‎
 By jcvillarreal - Dec 13, 2009
I've been wanting this tattoo for almost 2 years. I searched for the right artist who knew what I had in mind. Johnny Jackson drew up the perfect drawing. The colors are so vivid and true and he is such a talented artist. My Virigin Mary with the "Day of the Dead" theme is so beautiful. I could not have asked for a better tattoo. I look forward to getting more ink and am so happy with the tattoo. My husband is ready to go under the needle next. And Annette is so sweet and nice and makes you feel so welcomed in the studio

The best tattoo studio in houston
By Jpolowsky - Nov 17, 2009
I heard of Texas Body Art from the magazines and just had to go see for myself .
They treated me with care and designed my tattoo that same day and it came out beautiful!
I had no idea it would come out so good.I will refer them to my family and friends.

Perfection 3-26-08 henry b.
if you are looking to have a tattoo done by a serious professional texas body art is the place to be. the shop is extremely clean, well decorated, and full of friendly people, artists, and employes all of which are willing to help throughout the entire process involved with tattooing. keeping all this in mind this IS NOT one of those type of shops located next to your favorite bar that caters to drunks looking for a cheap quickie that gives them bragging rights for the weekend, as i said before these are world class tattoo artists who will not compromise the quality of their work. I myself traveled from New Orleans just to be tattooed at texas body art by Johnny Jackson, and loved every second of it as i'm sure past, present, and future customers all do, have, and will. great service. great people. great art.

Hell Yeah!

i had a great experience at texas body art. everyone there was very cool to me and my friends and also very professional. i'm stoked about the work that johnny jackson did for me. the colors are really vivid and he worked with great precision. i was also very impressed with what i saw the other artitsts working on. cant wait for the next time that i'm in houston so i can get some more ink.

Great Place!
Great work! Great artists! Gabe did a great job! I won't use anyone else. If you want a great tattoo go to texas Body Art!! The place is clean and professional! I have other tattoos and Gabe did the best work! I will definately be back. Texas Body Art is well worth the money! I thoroughly enjoyed the experience ! Thanks Guys! See you soon!

Johnny Jackson's Texas Body Art is the best..Johnny did my portrait piece and I love it.The shop is the best I've seen,and the people are great.Professional work worth traveling for.I came from Tennessee to get my last piece and will gladly make the trip back for another one.Thanks to Johnny and the beautiful Mizuz Inkaholik,Gabe,Casandra,Amy and all the crew.It was hard to leave...I wanted to stay and get covered!

When only THE Very BEST will do!!!

Recently I had the pleasure of a new tattoo at Johnny Jackson's Texas Body Art. I travelled from Atlanta to have Gabe do a Roger Waters tat before the concert in Houston. This place is the best that I've ever been to. It was well worth the trip. Johnny and Gabe worked with me to get a unique piece of skin art that attracts attention every single day. Johnny convinced me to do a full sleeve in order to tell a story that I want to tell so I'll be making the drive as many times as necessary. The people at Texas Body Art are just the finest, to each and all I thank you for a great experience and can't wait to get back.

World Class Tattoo place
leslie mcdonald f.
They are very helpful and the artists are always great.My family has been getting tattooed here for years and when my friends go to other places they always end up envying our tattoos we got at Texas Body Art .
The old location on Hwy 6 were trying to trick us into coming there but we went there and its no comparrison.
I would highly recommend this place for first class service

Amazingly Friendly, Awesome Art, Resonably priced... can't beat it

I had read all the great reviews on these guys and they were 100% correct!! If you're looking for some ink pay Nate at Texas Body Art a visit. The people are very cool and down to earth. Thanks for the amazing job Nate!! Vivere Ad Alta Voce !! LIVE OUT LOUD!!

Clean and Sterile
Melinda A. | insider_expert Insider Expert
I have never been in a tattoo parlor before, but this was probably one of the cleanist businesses I have ever seen. The people were great in offering suggestions and being helpful in what to get. The prices seem reasonable. The instruments were sterile. The tattoo artist wear gloves, and the area was just neat and orderly. They were very aware that this was my first tattoo and explained to get something small, just incase I do regret getting one, however, this was on of my better choices. They give you directions in taking care of the tattoo. Loved it. If I wanted another tatttoo, I would definitely go back there again.

I went here for my first tattoo ever and i have to say the work done by my artist from this location was outstanding. I came into the shop with a picture in hand, and the artist created something unbelievable. The compliments i get from people regarding my tattoo are unbelievable. I never thought i could go through with it, but for the money its quite literally a masterpiece! I love my Phoenix. I wish i could remember who did it, but man i should have tipped him more than 40 bucks! Oh well! I recommend it 150%.‎
