From Blu Hanya Tattoo as a rebuttal to Daniel L's review. Yes we did explain to them that we did not want their business anymore. And yes words were exchanged with him because the previous time he was in our shop his wife, who had been tattooed by the artist in the past, inquired about a portrait of their daughter. The artist gave his wife the price, which was fair for the price of portraits and for his quality. His wife was well aware of his portrait prices and quality because she had already gotten a portrait from him. When she went home and told her husband the price, he than came back up to the shop and was very rude to our shop manager badgering and haggling about the price, being very short to her and just talking down to her. she explained the size he thought the tattoo should be was not a tattooable size for a portrait and explained the amount of hours it takes to execute a good portrait and that is why the price was that. the artist was actually cutting her a deal from his normal portrait prices because she was a repeat customer. Her husband still thought it was bogus and left the shop with an attitude. His wife even came up and apologized to the artist and our shop manager on how her husband behaved in our shop. so when he came back in, the artist talked to him about his actions and how he spoke with our shop manager. People need to remember the customer is not always right, and you cannot talk to people in any way you seem fit. to get respect you must give it first. the artist is very passionate and does not condone people mistreating his co-workers. We even offered to go a bit lower on the price of the portrait because he did not want to see her get a poorly done portrait, especially since there are few artist in the area who can truly tattoo a well done portrait. He was not mad that she was going somewhere else for work, but that how her husband acted in our place of business. He does feel a bit of betrayl that he was willing to work with her on the price, as he did with the first portrait he did on her, almost doing it for half his portrait prices. If she would of came in and just talked to us about the price we could of worked with her. Instead her husband came in and belittled our hand crafted permanent work we do and insulted us by giving us such a hard time about the price. Would you work all day on a job putting lots of time and focus into doing your very best and than someone not wanting to pay you what is fair for the work you did? we have bills just like everyone else, this is not a hobby for us but our livelihood, please keep that in mind when talking to people who hand craft anything for you. Included at the top is the portrait of Ozzy Osborne, which was the first portrait he did on her, just to show you his quality of work.

I've been to No Egrets twice for work and my husband has as well. We love it there! Everyone is super helpful, friendly and willing to work with you no mattter what you want to have done. I've had Ben & Cavan both do work for me and they both made me feel right at home, even when I had to stay for 4 hours to complete a piece one time. It is always full of people who care about what they do and making sure you're happy when you walk out the door. They've always got the TV on with a movie or game and will usually had over the remote to a customer if you're sitting there to wait for a bit. They are great when it comes to making/keeping appointments but always welcome walk ins too! Not to mention the fact that they are SUPER clean which isn't always the case here in Clarksville. All in all, one of the better shops I've been to, not just in Clarksville! Can't wait to have some more work done, everything they've done for me has been high quality art that doesn't look like a 2 year old scribbled on my skin!
I just went in last night and was tattooed by Alice. She only did the outline for what I wanted because I didn't give her the full description of what I wanted. I am giving her 5 stars because she was so professional and patient. I know if the roles were reversed, I would have punched me in the face, but Alice was so understanding. I gave her an idea, then later changed my mind. I sent her a picture of what I wanted but didn't add all of the details so she did the best with what I gave her. When I went into the shop, I changed the tattoo AGAIN. Rather than get impatient, she just said "I understand. It's permanent and you want it right". I felt terrible, lol, but she is awesome. Granted, so far all I have is the outline of the tattoo that I want but I am so happy with it. I seriously can't wait to go back and get the rest filled in! Alice is a great, professional artist and I'll recommend her to anybody that's looking to get tattooed in the Clarksville area.
