I can’t speak highly enough about both Ashley and Jess. I’ve followed Ashley through three places and will always recommend her. She’s absolutely incredible and so talented. Every friend I have referred to her has become a client for life. Today I got a tattoo from Jess and she was so patient and helpful. I trusted her advice and I absolutely love it!

My husband and I recently went to Oak & Iron for tattoos by Jess. She did an awesome job and we loved her personality. We were impressed by many things at the shop. Everything was very clean and the service was amazing. I really enjoyed being in a shop that was female owned. When we walked in, we both immediately felt comfortable and welcomed into the shop. We live in NYC but I will be back for more tattoos from Jess.

Ashley is great and so friendly! I have been a client for years and will keep coming back. The new place has a cool, urban vibe and I love it!

I've had services done by both Jess and Ashley; an amazing tattoo by Jess and a fantastic hair cut and dye by Ashley. They are both very professional and great at what their respective trades, their shop is super clean and its an overall pleasant atmosphere for either salon services or tattooing services. These two are great and I would highly recommend to anyone.

Ashley is an extremely talented stylist, and one of the best in the business. She is the only person I trust with my hair, and I have been going to her exclusively for almost 10 years. Even when I lived out of state, I made trips back just so Ashley could do my hair. I HIGHLY recommend Oak & Iron, you will not be disappointed! The new shop is beautiful with a central location, which is convenient if you are coming from the suburbs. Do yourself a favor and get on her books!

Oak & Iron as a whole is innovative, a salon and tattoo studio owned by two women who strive to deliver a safe space, a clean environment and a proper service. Truly a one of a kinda experience to hit Buffalo. I have been getting tattooed by Jessica since she was an apprentice and I’m happy to follow her into her new shop. Some of my favorite tattoos are from Jess and I appreciate the steps she takes to educate on the proper aftercare of my tattoos. Ashley has been cutting my hair for almost 2 years now. Before her I went to the same hair stylist for over 10 years, so to make that switch you know Ashley has some serious skill. She listens to what you want done. Product wise, she offers vegan and cruelty free options.
