I went to get my bottom lip pierced from the lady TIna at Ressurrection Tattoos. I called several places looking for a good price. Everyone was above $55 dollars except for Ressurrection Tattoos. They only charged $30. I found out why they are so much cheaper. I had called before I went in. Tina was very short and seemed rude and not very informative or she just didnt care. I showed up and sat in the front very visible it took her at least 10 min to even aknowledge the fact that i w...view moreas there. I asked why they were so much cheaper the Male (I think he was the owner) said because of the jewelry then he started to mumble and trailed off pretending to have been preoccupied. I went in the back with Tina and she was very shaky and nervous either she didnt know what she was doing (which in this case shoud not have been aloud to pierce until properly trained). Or she was under the influence There was also guy smoking inside the shop while I was there. She had dropped the jewelry on the floor so the needle and clip was hanging from my lip while she was scrounging on the ground she found it and was gonna try to use it again! She saw the look on my face and said ill get a new one. She got it through and it took her a good 15 minutes to get the ball on she kept shaking and it was twisting my lip which after all of this was hurting pretty bad. She gave me no care insrtuctions didnt hardly say 5 words to me. the whole time- I went to another shop and asked the guy to look at it he told me she had pierced it wrong and it was in an angle thats why the metal was cutting through my lip.view less
I have gotten all my tattoos and piercings at Ressurection Tattoos. They price much cheeper, they quote you on your tatt, they dont charge by the hour. I got a solid tribal design on my back, a 4 1/2 hour job done for $250! That was my first tattoo and after that i have had the same guy, Roger, do all of mine: my back, both arms half sleeved and even a free one on my calf. They are very friendly and cool and most reasonable and provide great advice and feedback and touchups are alw...view moreays free! Piercings are much cheeper too, I have had 9 piercings from them. They have really grown since the last time I was there and for good reason. With them there is no need to worry about the cold shoulder or rudeness.view less
Two years ago, I found Annie Mess and she's been nothing less than exceptional! I travel from Houston and everytime she adds onto my back piece, I'm amazed. She always listens to my ideas and in return communicates them clearly in her renderings. I'm completely in love with my tattoos and have Annie to thank!!

I have had several other ""artists"" tattoo me, but Annie is by far the very best. I had her do a piece about three years ago and was so impressed with the bright colors and shading that I went back again... and again. She has now done three pieces, one very large, on me. She also knows how to cover up very well! The colors are always brilliant, her design is wonderful, and her creativity really makes the pieces beautiful. The one thing about Annie that definitely stands out to me...view more above everything else is her shading-- she doesn't just tattoo, it's like she is drawing. I get compliments on my tattoos constantly and anyone I know that asks where to get a tattoo I send to Annie.view less
I drove from Orange Texas just to let Annie do a black and grey cover up of two screwed up wings with a full arm piece of St. Michael slaying demons. That is my favorite tattoo I have because she did it from scratch with a sharpie, then went to work. It is also the one I get the most compliments on on both of my quarter sleeves. Thank you Annie for working with me and doing such a fantastic job.
I have a large back piece designed, created and conceptualized by Annie Mess. I have invested 36.5 hours of time and thousands of dollars into this tattoo, which I consider it a masterpiece! I met Annie on recommendation from another artist, who I had initially selected to for the work. He told me honestly that he could not deliver what I wanted - my garden on my back - in the way that I wanted - feminine, colorful, and three-dimensional without any heavy black outlines. This artist re...view morecommended Annie Mess. I did not know her, but I respected this man so much I that trusted her with this piece and what she has created mesmerizes and touches everyone who sees it. It is a highly detailed, colorful, and intense portrait piece. Every time somebody looks at it they see something they have not seen before?I am in awe of Annie's work and we will always be interconnected! I struggle to find the words to describe how I feel about the art I wear everyday that came from Annie's spirit. I gave her my ideas and I let her take the piece, as an artist, to the places she felt it could go. In return, I received the best possible gift - a tattoo that is in extension and representation of me. I enthusiastically promote Annie to everyone, anytime I can. Her price is reasonable and she has shown me great flexibility in the times available to work.view less
i got a huge leg piece by annie and while it took almost a year to complete it was very well worth it. she worked in everything i asked for, touched up everything that needed it and explained every detail and why she chose to do things any certain way. it was a great experience and i would most def. go back to her. great girl amazing artist clean and totally client oriented. \r
