Adam was great from the start by listening to what I wanted and taking what I envisioned and going beyond what I had in mind with his own unique artistic eye.He took the time to break down his idea and educated me on the proper colors that would last and give life to the piece. I definitely recommend anyone looking for a quality tattoo to check him out
Adam did my first tattoo and I couldn’t be more pleased with it, such an amazing experience and environment to get my first tattoo in and I’m definitely addicted now lol. Thank you Adam, you are a true artist💪🙏
Adam did a matching half sleeve for myself and my husband and they are phenomenal! I wish I could post a pic. We get asked ALL the time who did our work. We have sent numerous people to Adam even since his moving to Tampa. I need more business cards to give out....
I have been going to Adam Roof for years and I have never had a bad experience. He is easy going and is a very talented artist. I have gotten dozens of tattoos from him and they all have exceeded my expectations. He can take an idea you have of something you want and turn it into a masterpiece. 10/10 will always recommend.
