Two of my sisters and I decided to all get tattooed together. They both already had tattoos but this would be my first. I suggested we go to Timeless after reading all the good reviews and looking at the amazing artists' portfolios. We went in as walk-ins on a Saturday. The environment was clean and the staff were friendly. At the counter we first spoke with Anthony who was very nice and helpful. It was determined my sisters' tattoos would have to wait for appointments (which we anticipated) but mine could be done that day. My sisters were able to make appointments for the very next day. Both Rob and Jenny took a look at my design and helped modify it into something that would look good as a tattoo. They gave me my choice of artist, but from the portfolios I felt that either of them could do it well. I ended up being tattooed by Jenny. Each artist has his or her own room that is something like 8'x8'. My sisters were allowed to come in and watch and even take a few pictures. Jenny was very sweet and understanding about my first tattoo. I was amazed at how quick she was - it took her under an hour to do a bird about 7" across with lots of shaded and colored feathers. She did a really beautiful job translating the colors and shading on my design while keeping the silhouette, proportions, and level of detail I wanted. Though I trusted her, I was a little iffy looking at it when it was done, because the redness of my skin made it difficult to see the light purple she had used. I think she sensed my apprehension because she said if I needed it touched up or more color added, she would do that for free. Of course once my skin was back to normal, I could see her color choice worked great. We went back the next day for both my sisters to be tattooed by Lew Hands. He was also very nice and friendly. He took the sketches and ideas my sisters had and was able to translate them to just the tattoos they wanted. They had both gotten tattoos before without forming loyalties, but this time they said if they get tattooed again they want it done by Lew. I had read in reviews that Timeless was pricey, and while I was definitely willing to pay for quality work, I wasn't sure what to expect. I felt the prices they gave us were actually very reasonable. For example my detailed multicolored bird about 7"x4" was $200. We are all very pleased with our tattoos and our experience...and we got lollipops at the end!
They do amazing custom tattoos. I've looked high and low for a tattoo parlor to design a custom tattoo but most tattooiest were just pulling crap off the internet. Not this shop. They asked me about my hobbies and what I liked and immediately drew out three designs for me. I was so IMPRESSED. They immediately found something I'd love for a lifetime. And guess what? They never tattoo the same design twice so can you believe I will be the only person to have MY tattoo design? I felt special and I really enjoyed everyone there. They have a clean and comfortable shop. It was filled with music and tv to keep me company while I waited. I have been to several shops in the Atlanta area and unfortunately most of their customer service is horrible but this shop gets 5 STARS from me. I love this place.
We've had the need to use a plumber twice this year - once to replace a section of pipe leaking in our basement and the other to replace the gas connection from the meter into the house. Hiring any contractor to do a job isn't cheap but you do expect good work, honesty and friendly service. M Cary & Daughters Plumbing delivered on all three accounts and we were very satisfied with the work they did. On the gas line replacement, we contacted them to get a 2nd opinion and not only did they come up with a less disruptive/invasive solution, it was less expensive than the quote from the first plumber. M Cary & Daughters is on our list of reliable plumbing contractors!
