I paid $400 to get a cover up on my back. The guy did half the tattoo and we scheduled an appointment for me to come back and finish. I paid the full balance and scheduled to come back the next month. I show back up for my appointment and the other workers tell me that guy is gone and no longer works there!!!!! Followed by blank stares.. What didn't help the situation is that I drove 4 hours from Houston!! This apparently has happened to several people. The guy at the front tells me that he is too busy to finish my tattoo so I'm basically SOL. This facility has lost all credibility and this is extremely unprofessional! There is too much competition and other tattoo businesses that treat people right. Save your money and your time and go somewhere else!!!
I have had many tattoos done over the years that I have not been happy with in the end, except for one. I went to tattoo nation to get a piercing n while I was there, the dudes were super cool, so I talked about a tatt I been wanting that I been checking around to have done n I got quoted unbelievably reasonable. I went back n got it done, n it looked amazing! So I've been back into that shop numerous times n even had a cover up done, in color! That I was told by another shop, could only be done in black n gray due to size n color. Ppl look at it n never know what was originally there. I'm now a regular there at Tattoo Nation n I recommend anyone to go there n get their ink done perfectly, with being priced amazingly n done by men who r real n all about ur needs n not the $ they make off u. 5 stars!
when i moved to corpus,i checked out several tattoo studios before choosing Tattoo Nation. Now i have seen a few reviews,the people thought the artist there were rude,or they didnt like their phone ediquite,or their piercing rejected...even belly buttons have the chance of rejection,and all though the artist were not the politest,they were far from the rudest i came across in other shops here in corpus,and Rene,the first artist i met there,and the first one to tat me,says the F word 3 times a sentence...but i wasnt there looking for a rated g tattoo studio,i was there to find artist i was comfortable with to continue my addiction. Well once you realize he isnt going off on you with all the swearing,you realize he is just very passionate about what he does...he talks 3 miles a minute,but once in his chair,you find out why,he has talent...but anyways,all the guys there do great work. Since i have been tatted by Gabe,and talking with Mike now about my elbow,and im not real big into the piercing,i did have Sketch do a dermal, and i have seen hundreds of piercings done while ive been in the chair or just stopped by to chat with the artist,they always leave very happy. And i have seen then get rude with customer,but every time,it was the customer causing it. If you saw some of the crazies these guys have to deal with,you might understand. So if something doesnt heal quite right,go see them,let them touch you up,the gaurantee their work. Instead of leaving neg reviews trying to mess with the flow. All in all,Tattoo Nation is the only place i get ink,and the guys there very unique individuals. Get to know them. If they are rude to you...you deserve it
I am NEVER going back there to get another tattoo. Their social etiquette needs work and the artwork is crappy..I dont care how cute the the artists are, they need to practice somemore cuz it looks like they wrote on my back wit pen Nd the likes are shaky. Thats sorry as hell.
I don't know what some of y'all are talkin bout I just went too go get mha industrial bar piercing and he did great it was real quick not all slow and painful like some of the vids I've seen on YouTube of people gettin em when I turn 18 in a few months in deff gonna go there too get my tats:)
This place is a JOKE!! i got my belly button pierced and the guy did it crooked!! then i went back a month later because it was paniful and oozing and the piercer said it wasnt infected, then i went to another shop in cc to get another opinion and YEP IT WAS INFECTED!!! the people at tattoo nation are rude and i will never step foot in that place again.
well Brenda,if you had trouble with your piercing a month later,i pretty much can promise you it wasnt taken care of properly,a piercing in a month should be healed...100% percent of the time,infected piercings are do to the person not caring for it right...as for other shops telling you it was infected..thats what other shops do,talk crap,when your the number 1 shop,the other guys are always gonna be jealous and try to keep you away...we have had thousands of very satisfied customers in the almost 4 years we have been open...and from my experience,the artists at the shop only get rude after you do...for anybody wanting a tattoo or piercing,come in and talk to us for yourself and form your own opinion...more then likely,this person probably didnt even get pierced in our shop,probably the girlfriend of an artist from a shop not doing so well
