Very unhappy with service received

I came in for permanent eyebrow tattooing I had to do three sessions at 150 each not cheap! I mentioned to Nikki who did the work and is also the owner that when they healed I lost some parts of the work . I had to come in for a fourth time and pay 75 which I felt should have been free. She then started telling me off and acting very rude and unprofessional and did not seem to care or want to listen about her clients concerns . I had called and left her TWO voicemails within a three week timeframe and she NEVER called me back prior to me calling the studio myself to get in touch with her to inquire about getting the appointment booked and then only got to speak to her assistant. I felt that I did not get what I paid for at all instead I got talked to harshly as if it was my fault after I mentioned to her the second time I wanted to make them thicker . I even asked her should I shave or pluck the new growth hairs. SHE said pluck and I did in doing so I lost some pigment. On the 4th time she tells me wait after 10 days none of this mind you is in the paperwork. Then I was told she was not responsible even if none of the pigment took according to the consent form I signed because eyebrow tattoos although suppose to be permanant may or may not take. I understand that but I thought after paying almost 500 she would at the very least do a touch up and return a phone call for free ? NO. Instead you get insulted and criticized for just speaking to her about the problem. I would not recommend this place to anyone looking for permanant make up the prices are way too high and Nikki is a very mean spirited person who is all nice when taking your credit card but all hateful when her customer has a concern or problem with her service. In this case you don't get what you pay for as even leaving today I am still not satisfied I asked her to make them thicker and she refused. I didn't feel like arguing she already took my money what could I do?
In the future I will go somewhere else for touch ups and be treated with respect and someone who values their customers .

Well if the process I went through is

Well if the process I went through is any indication of how this business is run, avoid! I contacted this company regarding session for a memorial tattoo for my nine year niece who fought cancer and is no longer with us. Each adult member of our family wanted a small piece to have with us forever. Granted we have not gotten tattoos before, so maybe there are some shops that really cannot accommodate a group or small tattoos but that would be easy to say in the inqury email. After saying they could fit us in, giving forms they needed back immediately, things got strange. The owner revoked a price her staff gave in the forms, then sent me a long rambling email about the profit margin of the shop, made a judgmental statement about how groups act and how long she had owned the shop. When I said we would not be purchasing from her business, she explained even she and her staff were confused by the process. If you own a shop you shoud have a system for these things, right? NOT a good impression, they made it such a hassel for no reason.

Wonderful Staff, Great Experience!!!

I went in to get my nipples pierced by their piercer (Stacy), and I gotta say, I will go to them for all my piercings from now on! Not only was the place spotless and sterile, Stacy was super-super nice! I'm very embarrassed of my skin, she didn't say a word about it! Very professional and all around kind. She made sure I was nice and relaxed before doing the actual piercing, talked to me the whole time, and told me some great stories as well! The receptionist was very sweet, and I related to her a lot (we're both geeky). She was honest with me about the level of pain I would probably experience, which I loved (no sugar-coating it thanks, if it's gonna hurt, let me know), and conversed with me like I was more than a customer, like we were friends. Really made me feel welcome and comfortable. My whole experience was wonderful, I couldn't ask for more professional, friendly, genuine people. I recommend this place to everyone who wants either a tattoo or a piercing!!

Great Experience

Everything from the original consultation to the final tattoo was handled professionally. John is a great artist and was very patient with me. Thank you Nikki, I will definitely recommend your studio.

highly NOT recommended!

I'm not sure if all of the bad reviews are getting deleted or what, but I was pretty shocked to see only good reviews for Nikki's. Every tattoo I've seen done by her come out looking horrible. Just do your research and look at her portfolio before you let her touch you with a needle. If you still choose to go there, then you deserve a bad tattoo!

Awesome Experience - Highly Recommended??

I was looking for a shop to do my first tattoo and Nikki's was one of a few that came highly recommended. I checked out two others before visiting Nikki's but the moment I walked into Nikki's studio I knew I had found the right place. Her staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They took the time to listen to what I wanted, something the other two places failed to do. It was obvious that they cared about their customers so I had Nikki work up a design. When I first saw the design I was not sure that she captured what I was looking for but she assured me that once it was transferred to my body that it would look exactly like what I wanted. She was spot on. It turned out even better than I expected. It fits the shape of my body perfectly and I have Nikki's talent and skill to thank for that. It has been a week since my appointment and it is healing very nicely, with minimal discomfort both during and after the appointment. Her aftercare instructions were clear and simple. Overall, I do not think I could have asked for a better first tattoo experience, and it certainly won't be my last. I highly, highly recommend Nikki's Tattoo Studio.

Love the gang at Nikki's!

I have gotten several tattoo's by Nikki and love them all. I come to her with my vague ideas and she creates just what I want. She is definitley open to hearing my suggestions and I trust her judgement completely! I get so many compliments on the tattoos she has done for me. it is fun just to go in the shop and chat! Stacy has done several piercings for me as well as smaller tattoos. She is quick and efficient and makes the piercing as comfortable as possible. Sarah at the front counter is very helpful. Overall a great tattoo experience!

Where is he at???

I was referred a couple of years ago to Nikki's by some friends, but really wasn't impressed by the work or the attitudes. Since the place was close to where I lived, I'd still stop in occasionally to get jewelry and look around. That is how I found out that she had hired a new artist. I looked through his portfolio and was very impessed and after talking to him, I was completely assured that he could do what I was looking for. I've had 3 or 4 tattoos from Jason and each one has been better than the last. He really took his time and talked to me about what I was looking for. So now the problem. I stopped by a little while back to talk to him and set my next app't, only to be told that he was no longer there. When I asked what happened and if they knew where he was, I was completely blown off. VERY unproffessional. So, if anyone does know anything, could you post it on here? Thanks!

Beyod 5 Stars

I have been getting tattoo'd for 8 years and stuck with the same person for my first 6 until I moved out of state from Maine to North Carolina. I love my artist back home so much that I was very hesitant to go anywhere else. I was getting the itch to get another tattoo so I started to ask around, two people I worked with 3 years ago went to a place in Mooresville and their tattoos were really good so I checked out the guy they went to. He was really good and I felt comfortable with him, he took his work seriously and was very much a perfectionist, I went to him twice and got 3 tattoos. Then I found out he was a creep and was soliciting things from girls when they were alone in his room with him, I was never gonna go back there again but I was stuck, where would I go now? I asked around again and no one could give me a decent name so I researched for myself. I live in Salisbury and I looked at places within 2 hours of here because a good artist is worth the travel. I found Nikki's Tattoo Studio. I was so impressed with what I saw on her website that I called and asked when I could drive the hour down there just to show her some of the ideas I had. I had not planned on making any appointments or even deciding yes or no for sure whether I liked the place, I wanted to be sure it was the right place for me. I am looking for a keeper!! Well that day I found it. Nikki is not only spunky but she is AWESOME at what she does, she makes you feel comfortable and she is cool as hell. I am so not a "girls girl" but I love that the place is run by women. Nikki is very professional and she really knows her stuff. I went home so excited and impressed with everything I saw I called the next day and made an appointment for a week later. It is so convenient that I can make the appointment over the internet and can do all the paperwork from home and pay over the phone. I got my tattoo and not only was the work so incredible but the cost was so much less than I would have expected. I am so proud of my tattoo and can't wait for the summer to show it off to everyone. I recommend that everyone go see Nikki, she truly is amazing.

Great Tats!

All of my tattoos have been done at Nikkis. Jason has done all but one. He is such a great artist. His work exceeds anything that I could have ever imagined. He takes his time with you, and really helps to make your ideas come to life. If you are looking for your first tat, or to contine a piece, Jason is the guy to go too.
