I went in a last week with my girl. She wanted a piercing and i wanted a tattoo. I was hoping for fat boy but he wasnt available. So we decided to just get a piercing for her. Firstly the piercer didnt even acknowlage me or my girl when we tried to speak to him, he just looked at his phone. The guy at the desk made it seem like i was bothering him. He spoke to me like i was stupid, which i can assure you i am not. And proceeded to talk to another guy about smoking and pulled weed out of his pocket. I dont know if he was trying to impress my girl, but it didnt work. He was really rude, unprofessional, abd disrespectful. We decided to leave. Ive never felt so unwelcomed in my entire life. I will never re enter hardcore again while that joke of an employee is there. Which is ashame because ive heard and seen nothing but amazing tattoos come out of there. If the owner sees this please feel free to email me directly because if that was happening in my business i would most definatly want to fix it asap. I cant imagine what other people were made to feel coming in and out of there.
I just got a decent size tattoo on my arm of a turtle. I came in with some reference images and a few ideas and made an appointment with Jason. He gave me a gorgeous tattoo that I get compliments about daily. The lines are solid and the colors are vivid, bold, and beautiful. I would highly recommend this shop. All the guys are really friendly and I felt really comfortable knowing i was in their hands. The price was extremely reasonable but I would have paid more for such a great experience. Their online profiles are really helpful and they have more of their work displayed in the studio if you're curious.
Ive been getting tattooed at hardcore for almost 10 years by danny lazi aka phatboy. I will neber step foot into another shop again. My tattoos are clean, vibrant, readable, and exactly what i wanted. Danny has such a great understanding of not only his trade, but people aswell. Ive personally witnessed some very difficult customers leave with the biggest smiles afyer being tattooed by him. Hes very light handed, and patient with me, because i can be a cry baby. Lol but i will never let another person tattoo me other than him. Id follow him anywhere. I highly recomend paying him a visit!!
