Amazing tattoo shop! The Bad Donkey fellas are professional and extremely talented. They work closely with you to customize designs and make it what YOU want. Very comfortable and clean shop. I was personally tattooed by Jered, my husband by Russell James - both pieces are amazing. Perfect place to go for any tattoo - sleeve, cover-ups, first or 30th!

I have had 3 tattoos done by Jered and get compliments on them all the time. Very excellent work. The shop is a clean, relaxed and comfortable environment. Everyone we delt with in the shop were very nice and welcoming. Jered took his time with me and did a fantastic job. My husband and I won't ever go anywhere else!

Great Tattoo Shop!!! I have had 4 tattoos done here by Leo. The tattoos still look amazing even after a year. Bright colors. I get compliments all the time. They were very busy when I had made my last appointment but to me that is a sign of a good business. I will definitely go back the next time I visit the Lake.

Premier Shop of the Lake Area!!! This has to be one of the best, most talented, creative tattoo shop that I've ever had the honor of being a "guest artist" at. Fantastic work. Bold colors. One of a kind designs. Plus, all around good damn fella's! I ride 526mi. to come to work here from Wisconsin. Love this place!

I just went and got a peace pipe done by Leo and my best friend got a Redwings done by Jered and they did an amazing job. I am so happy with my tattoo. Anyone who wants to get a tattoo you should definetly go and see the guys at Bad Donkey in Osage Beach, Mo.

This is THE only place my husband and I will ever get work done again!!! I swore never to have a name tattooed on me, but I did.... :) Leo did such a fantastic job it looks more like an awesome piece, then you notice its a name. They all take their time and make sure you get exactly what you want. I am going back for sure!!! Anyone that works on you acts like its their own tat. They know their craft!!!!

I have gotten 2 tatoos at Bad Donkey. Both of them done by Jered and I would not go anywhere else. He did an excellent job and I felt very comfortable there~everyone was very friendly! I will definately be contacting him again when I visit the lake! Highly recommend this place!!

AMAZING work, especially by Jared! He provides superior work ethic, wonderfully, creative designs, and is never too busy to be professional. He has taken time out of his day over and over again to make things work for me and my family. I highly recommend Bad Donkey Tattoo to anyone getting tattoo services in the Lake Area! Go see Jared, Leo or any of the other employees. You won't be disappointed!

The time effort and talent that was put into my tattoo was very impressive. The shop is very clean and well decorated and the entire staff display the utmost professionalism. I recommend everyone who wants a tattoo to go here.

We LOVE Bad Donkey Tattoo!!!!!! My boyfriend is a walking billboard of Leo & Jared's awesome work! He refuses to get tattoos from anyone else. We love The Bad Donkey Tattoo and the staff! Very clean & professional! I don't have as many tats as my boyfriend but the ones I do have were also done by Leo & Jared and get compliments on them everyday! They have the best shop at the Lake of the Ozarks!
