Persecuted Tattoo, Greer

With a big comfy couch and a display of some of the best artwork in the Upstate, you will not regret choosing Persecuted the second you step in the door. If you’re in the market for a quality color illustration, you’re going to want to get a session with owner and artist Justin Walker before he’s booked up for the year.
