I usually neverrrr go out of my way to write a review for anyone, but man, everyone needs to learn how to do business like Thunda. He's literally one of the friendliest, most considerate men I've ever dealt with as a customer. I got my cartilage pierced and didn't like where it was done. I went back later the same day to get it repierced, and Thunda was extremely patient with me and made 100% sure I was satisfied with everything. I was willing to repay for it all (it was so cheap anyway), but he did everything free of charge. There are so many other good things about this place that I was pleased with, but I feel like every other review mentions those aspects, so I won't be redundant. The only thing that I didn't quite like was the vaseline that was used when I was pierced the first time. I later read online that vaseline and other petroleum-based products can trap bacteria and cause suffocation of the tissue, which hinders the healing process (not sure how credible that source was, though). But when I got my piercing done the second time and asked if Thunda could do it without the vaseline, he was more than happy to oblige. (He says it's just used for the added comfort of the person getting pierced. It did, in fact, hurt more the second time. idk if it was because vaseline wasn't used or if it was because it was my second piercing...) All in all, this place is pretty cool and the people there are pretty freakin awesome. I would definitely recommend that everyone come here.

Gorilla Ink is great! From the outside, my friends were a little unsure. But on the inside the shop was not at all intimidating, Spade was very cool and an excellent host, and I felt super comfortable that the instruments were clean and safe. This was my first piercing, and if I wanted another I'd definitely go back there. The only reason I didn't give them five stars in this review was because I think they should offer written instructions on after-care for my piercing. I thought I was listening as Spade was telling me what to do, how long to let it be before I change the jewelery, etc, but I wasn't paying close enough attention. So, I had turned to Google/YouTube for info. Other than that, awesome all around!
I went down to NC to visit my family and i got my first Tattoo at Gorilla Ink. First and foremost let me just say my tattoo is amazing thanks to THUNDA. I was half asleep when he did it because thats how gentle he was. My tattoo experience couldn't have been any better. The atmosphere of the shop is astouding; comfortable couches, good music and good vibes. I forgot that I was walking into a tattoo shop because it felt so homey. I honestly loved it.The staff was attentive and I fell in love with most of them, they make you feel welcomed and comfortable. So point is GORILLA INK is top notch and hands down a great place to feed your tattoo and peircing needs. -Alexandria Taylor satisfied customer
