So I'm someone who has quite a few tattoos. I've seen plenty of bad I've seen plenty of good, and even great tattoos in my time. If you want a great or even a good tattoo with a positive customer experience than please please pay attention to what I say next. STAY AWAY FROM FLESH TATTOOS in Fallston Maryland. My 18 year old daughter went there to get a tattoo. She had exactly what she wanted in mind, we even did our research to find the right design and the right artist. When she walked into flesh earlier this week she walked in confident of what she wanted and with a picture in hand. What she went in asking for was completely thrown to the side and what she walked out with was a 5yr olds versions of what to me appears to be a mix between an arrow head, feather, duck beak, etc... essentially what she wanted was a feather turning into birds flying away. The tattoo she received was not even close. It's in a spot where it will show for the rest of her life and to make matters worse we went in today to voice our concerns and to voice our complaint and we were bombarded by the show manager and other tattooists raising their voices, talking over us, obviously making a bad situation even worse. The concern for the actual art wasn't even a care in their minds. They didn't want to hear any of it and in fact when asked if they thought it was worth the money that we paid for it they said absolutely, that it looked great, and they completely backed the tattooists work. I do not live by the mindset that the customer is always right, I never have because there are always situations where the customer is not right but in this case it is obvious that the work was terrible and should never have been put on her body in the first place. Out of consideration for my daughter and her personal business I will not post a picture online of this since she is incredibly upset over the fact that she now has to go pay someone else to get this monstrosity fixed but believe me, from someone who knows quite a bit about what is art and what a good tattoo looks like this is most certainly no where near the vicinity of a good tattoo. To add one more point if your questioning if Flesh did anything to rectify this at all, the answer is no. Leann the shop manager told us good luck finding somewhere else to fix it and sent us on our way. So please if you are another parent out there who is concerned for your child getting a tattoo, if the name Flesh comes up in the Fallston Maryland area do everything you can to steer your child or even yourself in a different direction.
Not only are they no help what so ever in the case that one of their artists makes a mistake, they also employee "Artists" who have no clue what they are doing. And have no business behind the trigger of a tattoo gun. DANE!!!!!!!
Final Analysis: Flesh Tattoo Company is not a reputable place to have a tattoo done. They have mounted their business on the shoulders of one artist who is impossible to get an appointment with. If he is not available you get passed off to an underling who I question has ever even painted with water colors, and you walk out of their shop with a permanent nightmare cut into your body. And when there's an issue you deal with a shop manager who has no personal or professional communication skills and really is just there for a paycheck and most certainly not there to hear or show any care towards the customers needs.
