After being insulted at American Classic tattoo, I went to Aces and Eights. I was referred by a close friend, and i'm not gonna lie, I was a little nervous about going there because of the physical appearance of the parlor. I went in with my close friend and was introduced to Mike, the person that would be doing my first tattoo. He was MUCH nicer than the rude person that I spoke with at American Classic and he even offered to draw me up a quick sketch of what I wanted to help try and ease my mind, because i'm not gonna lie... I was so nervous. I wouldn't be getting my tattoo for about another 2 weeks but he still helped me by answering the questions that I had. He told me to come back in about a week and he said he would have a much better drawing for me. In fact, he called me close friend that night and let him know that he had already drawn something better for me. I came back about a week later and was astounded by his drawing that would be my tattoo. He gave me an official price and I set up a date with him. The day of my tattoo, I was still very,very nervous but once again, he eased my mind by trying to say things that would make me feel better. He did a wonderful job and my tattoo healed up great! I was very satisfied with Mike's work and Aces and Eights period. I would greatly recommend them for not only a first tattoo but any tattoo!

This is one of the hidden gems of Athens. It isn't downtown but this makes it all the more a great experience. The guys in this shop are really down to earth, and make you feel comfortable. They are realistic with what you should expect in a tattoo. Mike D does beautiful work! If you are looking for amazing flowers, Japanese design, lettering, you name it he can do it. Need something custom? He's got it. Alan has beautiful color in his work. Ryan can set you up with anything you need as well. Need a specific time? They can accommodate whatever is needed. On Sundays, Devon is known for her beautiful work and is well experienced in classic art. Either way, you can't go wrong here! From the front it looks like a typical street shop, but walk inside and it's a collage of collectible art and decor. I go back here for all of my work.
Dae is awesome. He did navel piercings on me and my friend and it was hands-down the absolute best experience I have ever had with a needle in my entire life--I'm completely TERRIFIED of needles and he made me feel comfortable and somehow made it not hurt at all. All my friends have gotten tattoos here as well and none of them have ever had a single complaint--they got awesome designs, the staff is wonderful, and even years later the tattoos look amazing. If I ever get another piercing, it'll be from Dae, and everyone I know would absolutely get another tattoo here. This place is the best!
