I went to a few tattoo shop/ parlor's in the west michigan area, ( grand rapid's, grand haven, holland, muskegon ect.) and when i went around looking to have my tattoo fixed or covered everybody said that it wasn't possible. well when i went to Pain for Sale and had talked to a few of the artist's there they told me to talk to archie. and so left and came back on one of the day's that he was working and went in to talk to him. He was busy at the time but pointed me to his porfolio and asked me to look in it so that i would know what kind of an artist he is or what he had done for other people. AMAZING...is all i can say after he got done with what he was working on he took a few minute's to talk to me about my tattoo that i wanted cover of if it could happen for it to just be fixed and look better than what i had .. after talking about what i wanted i knew i found my artist. arch " The Cover Up Kid " I wanted to get my tattoo right then and there but I wasn't able to he was booked for the next few day's, My heart sank...but i set uo an appointment with him for the following week... Let's just say I'm so glad that I waited to have my Tattoo fixed by him and i just let him do his thing, he drew what i wanted right on my ancle, it just amazed me that he didn't really need to draw on paper then stick it to me. Now i know why he has such a long wait to get tattooed. This man know's what he's doing and i WILL NEVER go to another artist till the day i die... If you want an awsome tattoo for get the rest of any shop's or artist's in the area and just go see Arch. where ever he goes I WILL ALSO...he is an AMAZING artist.. Thank you for HIring him. I hope you guy's never get rid of him...( ! )
Bill was great and took a lot of pride in his workm, I've been to a couple of different artists some were really good but pride in their work is important. Everything was very clean and everyone who worked was fantastic! I was given a really inexpensive quote for a fairly small tattoo that was old (over 20 years) and had lost most of it's color thanks to a ton of sun and a pan of fried chicken. Bill didn't think it needed a new outline but after all the color was done, and a small area that needed to be outlined, he decided to finely reoutline all of it for the same price. I was asked if it was alright for him to leave his mark, along with the old one that was done by an artist in Austin Texas, this let me know he was doing his best even though the origanal work was someone elses he still cared about how it looked when it was finished. It's been several days and it looks great, I'm even thinking about going back and adding a dragonfly to it! Terri50
I cannot say enough great things about this place. Ryan, the piercer, is incredibly friendly and puts the person being pierced at ease. If you have any questions about the pain of a piercing or if it will look okay, she will be completely honest, she's not going to pierce something and make you look dumb. All the piercings are priced way below other piercing parlors, but its not a shady place. Everything is sterilized and cleaned properly. The piercer is also really patient with all the questions the customer has before and after the piercing. She also explains how to care for your piercing and makes sure you understand before you leave. This place is amazing and I wouldn't go anywhere else for future piercings.
