This is the ONIY place locally where I will get my art done… Super talented and chill crew!
Top rate artists, top rate procedures, top rate atmosphere. They’re worth traveling. Dave Shurman is a beast.
Charles is awesome. Does fantastic work. The whole session with him and Becca at the front desk was great.
I had an awesome experience with Two Pillars a few weeks ago. I was in a bit of a bad headspace because it was the birthday of my son’s father, a man who was my lover for a while but was, first and foremost, my good friend. He died by suicide a few years ago. Even though it’s been some time since that happened, my grief comes in waves and it’s always pretty intense on his birthday. I wanted to do something special to honor him. So I wandered around the city carrying a love note he had written me once, looking to get a tattoo of his handwriting. I tried Enigma first because he and I had once gotten a tattoo there together, but they were pretty dismissive, saying that the handwriting was too small and scraggly and that they would have to blow it up hugely for it to be legible. To be fair, I understood what they were saying, but legibility wasn’t the most important thing to me at that point.
I kept calling around and landed on Two Pillars. They told me they accepted walk-ins and that they could definitely take a look at what I wanted. I walked in and just felt the most enormous sense of relief – they seemed to be able to tell that I was a little flustered and just treated me with such kindness and compassion. The artist, Dave – he weirdly shared the same name as my son’s father – explained that yeah, the little holes in the a’s, e’s and o’s wouldn’t be there, and I might have to explain what it said to people. But if it was important that it be in his handwriting, they could totally thin it out a bit and do it on my wrist just like I wanted, where I could always see it. It was more for me than anybody else, honestly.
I cried as Dave worked and then it was done, and it was just perfect, that imperfect handwriting. He charged me an extremely reasonable price for it and I was on my way, all in about 20 minutes or so. Thank you, Dave and Two Pillars, for taking the time to make it work and hearing out what I wanted. I look at this every day, especially when I’m feeling sad or tired, and it makes me so happy. It gives me strength to know that my son’s father thought I was strong and I’m glad I have a way to remember his words forever.
Positive: Cleanliness, Professionalism, Quality, Value. Two Pillars is the best Tattoo shop your going to find in Richmond. Charles is a very talented artist and all around great person, I haven’t had work done by the other artist in the shop but the work they post speaks for it self. This shop is full of very talented artist.You cant go wrong when visiting Two Pillars Tattoo
Great Staff! Great Tattoos! We come from New Jersey to come to Two Pillars!
My first tattoo and it was an awesome experience! I met with Dave five weeks ago and discussed what I wanted and where I wanted it. He made some great suggestions. When I got there today he explained everything. He was great. I highly recommend Twin Pillars if your going to get ink done.
Absolutely in love with the cover up Charles did for me today!! He took something that was an eyesore for me over 10 years old and made it a whole new tattoo! So vibrant and detailed and I really can’t see a trace of my old tattoo, I feel like a whole new person 😭🙌🏻 the shop is beautiful and clean and Charles was a pleasure to chat with throughout the entire experience. Thank you so much for such an awesome piece and making this something I can be really proud of. Can’t wait to get more work done on this sleeve with Charles, HIGHLY recommend!!
Have had two pieces done by the talented Jenna Stephens. All of the artists are top notch, and whenever anyone asks for a recommendation for a tattoo, I always send them to Two Pillars. The shop is immaculate and they take the time to answer any and all questions you have and put you at ease. Whether it’s your first piece or your hundred and first, check them out…you won’t be sorry
As a huge horror movie fan, I’d be considering getting a Hellraiser puzzle box for awhile. Based on a friend’s referral, I contacted Two Pillars to meet with Charles on the piece. He worked around my schedule for the consultation and getting the work done. The puzzle box turned out so well that I can’t believe something so extraordinary is on my arm. My skin legitimately looks metallic. I’m beyond satisfied! The price was fair and worth every cent. From what I can tell, Two Pillars has artists that tattoo in a variety of styles and they are all very talented. I highly recommend Two Pillars Tattoo to anyone that wants to meet good people and get an extremely awesome tattoo!
Owned called me directly and was super professional which is a touch of fresh air. Good people and anyone who gets tattooed there will be taken care of.
Charles is a true artist, his work is spectacular. This is the 6th time he has worked on me and my son’s 2nd. I’ll be back soon for my next one. Great atmosphere, nice people and very clean. You wont be disappointed…
Charles is going to treat you right and ensure you are totally satisfied. This a a family owned business owned by a wonderful family. Check out Two Pillars … you’ll be glad you did!
I thought I did a review already. But here goes. Nice people. Patient answered my questions.. seems to be reasonably priced. Hoping to afford a tattoo here in the spring…
Charles went above and beyond on a tribute tattoo I received this evening. Everyone at Two Pillars makes you feel welcome. They are truly masters of their craft and have a laid-back atmosphere to accompany it with no pressure. I look forward to bringing more clientele as well as my own work to this establishment. Thank you everybody at Two Pillars for their professionalism and artistry.
I’ve been there 3 times to see Dave Shurman. I have a total of 7 tattoos by Dave. This location is such a visually interesting and unique place. I really like the open floor plan, and the mix of the different artist’s work on the walls. This parlor is much more inviting and enjoyable than other tattoo parlors I’ve seen. Everyone I’ve encountered there is very nice. Very laid back friendly environment. I personally drive an hour to go there. Free parking in the area on weekends and they have a restroom.
This is the best tattoo shop on Earth..I thought I did a review already. But here goes. Nice people. Patient answered my questions.. seems to be reasonably priced. Hoping to afford a tattoo here in the spring…

Jenna has done just about all of my tattoos, and I couldn’t be happier with each of them. The experience has been consistently exceptional. Jenna and Charles have an awesome shop at Two Pillars. I highly recommend, and thanks to the both of y’all!
Everybody that works here is awesome! The shop has a really great, comfortable feel, that makes you want to hang out there all day. All the artists are very talented but my heart belongs to Joe Hall. Been tattooed by him too many times to count.
