AON Experience - Tony Mancia
 
Hi guys, I'm dropping a line about my first experience at AON Saturday August 15th. My first tattoo experience was about 10 years ago when I was 16 and I got a small heart on my right arm. For years I've wanted to do a for real deal cover up by a professional. I did my homework and found AON online and realized that there was some great talent here. After checking out the artists I decided to go with Tony Mancia due to his ability to almost paint the tattoo on. First, I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the studio A+. Second, the staff was extremely customer oriented and friendly A+. Upon arriving I was greeted by the staff, given paperwork and was speaking with my artist within 20min A+. I had a few general ideas for Tony but was pretty much willing to give him free artistic range. His first choice was a Bali mask that I didnít bite on. He worked me up an Asian mask in 20min that had a cool organic theme. Now he only had a guideline, at most, but explained the theme to me and it sounded great. He marked me up with marker guidelines and began to free hand one of the coolest tattoos Iíve ever seen. There were a few unforeseen circumstances with equipment and other clients that led to us not finishing but Tony handle everything very professionally and helped me out with rescheduling and pricing as I had driven a good 4.5 hours for this tattoo.
To sum up Tonyís work I came in with some huge expectations. Hell, these guys are published in magazines, Iím paying 150hr, and I drove half a day to get there so yes Iím expecting the best. Well, Tony exceeded all of my expectations by a mile. On the way home Iím wrapped with saran wrap and still red and irritated in my tattoo area and I have complete strangers stopping me at gas stations saying how awesome the tattoo is. This dude has some major talent, thinks outside the box, and seems to be on the front edge of the tattoo industry and trends. AON better hold on to this one!
Thanks again guys I canít wait to finish this piece up in a few weeks.
Anthony J.

I've been waiting for Dave to start my sleeve for a few months now (though I've been wanting to book the appointment for over a year now) and November 20th just can't get her fast enough!

Yea trust me i know all about it, my appointments not till Feb.2, so i feel your pain, i waited all summer to book it cause i was saving money. Now im waiting another 4 months. Thats what it takes to get sick ass work done though. The way i see it anything that is going to be that sick, is well worth the wait!!

The wait is just killing me! I've been working so much overtime it's ridiculous. But it'll all be worth it the moment that needle hits my skin.
