There was Absolutely Nothing I disliked about Triangle. The Museum is amazing and Mr G and Madame Chinchilla are very unique and genuine people. They have great stories to share and are very kind and real. Something hard to find in Humanity these days. They go over and beyond to make your Tattoo experience one of a kind. amazing Art and Artists suggest everyone to get at least one tattoo from each of them, Mr G and Madame Chinchilla. My next trip is for my piece done by madame Chinchilla, this time I got one from Mr G!!

What an awesome experience!! My husband and I stopped here and were totally blow away with all the photos and facts crammed into this little shop/museum. They had the history of tattooing covered from the beginning to present. We also got to meet Madame Chinchilla and Mr G who were very gracious and friendly hosts. Madame C recommended a restaurant and lodging that were point on!! Fabulous folks! My husband even had a photo taken showing off one of his tats that Madame C wanted to add to her collection....he was ecstatic!!

It was great to meet Madame Chinchilla. The feeling of the surroundings were calming & interesting.She was very warm & welcoming & asked everyone to sign into their guest book. She struck me as a sweet soul.
