Here's a small sample of what people are saying about Painless Ric:
Dear Ric & Ryan,
Thank you guys for the great art and professional application you provided for me! I
am super excited to show off this tattoo, it is absolutely so much more than what I
Ryan Boomhower is an awesome young artist and I will be back for at least two more
pieces to be drawn up by him (applauds).
Ric is simply a joy to be around; supper attentive, fun and thorough-this guy is
After three sessions and almost 15 hours of work you'd think I would be dreading any
more time in the "chair"! Quite the opposite; I'll be back next fall to get some
company for my "Koi"- in fact; I am already researching for it!
If you want a great experience this is the place. Thanks again Ric and to all the
friendly, cool gang at Painless Ric's!
Tonight after Nakita and
I left the Shop we went to every tattoo parlor open, and told them about the shitty
job that "Leather and Lace" did.
Also, I am going to make up a myspace page all about Tattoos: WHAT NOT TO DO. This
page will be dedicated to you and thanking you for the extremely good advice in which
I decided not to listen to; because I am a dumb teen.
Thank you so much! As soon as I am 18, Painless Rics will be the only place I will go
to and trust to get my tattoos.
Thank you so much for all of your help!
Everyone I’ve shown my new
tattoo is very impressed. I really love it. It’s healing really nicely too. It was
an awesome first tattoo experience. People are amazed at the colors and how vibrant it looks.
I would absolutely do it again. You guys rock – everyone was so nice and supportive.
Ric and Mary,
We just wanted to say thanks for the wonderful work! The service and quality of work we
received at your new shop last night was wonderful. We are lifetime clients and will NEVER
go anywhere else.
See you soon.....good luck with the new shop

I'm writing to give your shop - especially AUSTIN a RAVE review! I showed up at the shop
with an idea of how I wanted to commemorate my daughter, I showed Mary and Austin my idea -
when I returned for the tat - I was amazed!!! Mary really listened when I told her that all
of my tats are freehand drawings - well when I showed up for the work - Austin had the most
amazing work prepared for me! It was a very emotional thing for me - and Austin and Mary
were so very cool! The Robin itself, well she's AWESOME and the lettering - freaking
fabulous! Especially when you consider that that sweet boy crawled on floor to write on my
leg!!!! My other tats are cover-ups - so I am doubly impressed that Austin was able to take
my conversation with him (and Mary) and transform my heart into the wonderful tat that I have
today. My only regret is that I've only been able to show it off to 2 people today!
Oh - by the way - tipping does NOT
make it painless! But your staff was sure there to help distract me! Mary, sweetheart that
she is - and nice ass too- even came over to sit and talk with me during the worst of the
shading! Your shop is awesome and your staff is terrific!
Congratulations! At least 10 people have asked me where I went for my work after my story
of how awesome my experience was with this tat! I'll be recommeding your shop to everyone!
And I'll be sure to come by so that Austin can take pics of his great work! His book should
be on the table next to Tony's! As far as freehand goes - Austin is the best!
Hey Guys! Just wanted to let you
know how happy I am with my cover up!
Thanks again and I will see you soon
for the finisihing touches,
Got an add on at your place Friday
night. I must say, without a doubt that it was the best experience getting a tattoo I have
ever had, from the conversation, to the tat itself. You have a very soft touch. The area
you worked is a sensative part (the inner forearm). You should say not only is it painless
for you, it is almost painless for your client. You are an artist and a gentleman. When
ever I am in town, you can count on me to keep on coming.

I came in last night and finally got
a tattoo at the studio at Mill Plain. I've never had a tattoo before and I had designed my
own and was very nervous to have it go from paper design to the real thing on my upper butt
cheek. I had no idea where to go and looked for a studio in the phone book on-line to try
and find a place and I was very lucky to have been welcomed at your studio by Daniel who
calmed my nervousness with his professional laid back nature and his attitude of "no problem,
I can easily do that tattoo for you".
My tattoo turned out completely perfect and very,
very beautiful!!! and he was so very professional towards me considering I had my butt
exposed while he was working on it! It hurt quite a bit more than I thought it would but
he was so good at working on it quickly (about 10 minutes I think), and I am very
appreciative of your artful ability and respectful attitude!
Thank you so much
Daniel....... you are truly very good at what you do! I will always refer anyone to you who
wants a tattoo! I absolutely love it!!!
