To all who are considering this tattoo/piercing shop, I decided to get my first piercing at Poke Em' Good in December of 2007. Little did I know that I would get a total of nine piercing by Pete total!!! I felt so comfortable going there and Pete told me everything I needed to know about each piercing I wanted to get. He couldn't be more helpful, and in my opinion, is the best piercer in the business. On pokeemgood.com, there is nothing but good feedback by many people he's pierced. He has the best prices and knowledge about pretty much everything and makes someone feel comfortable in the piercing chair. I was excited to know that Pete found Dave to tattoo in his shop. I've gotten two tattoos from Dave, and he's awesome! He has great ideas and input, and definately knows his stuff! He has reasonable prices, and won't try to overcharge you. Dave and Pete are a great duo, and I wouldn't imagine going anywhere else to get a piercing or tattoo. They're the best around!

My roommate and I went into Poke em Good to check out some of their other inventory and I got to talkin to Pete about piercings..i used to have a ton, got rid of em all, but was considering starting all over again. First time I was ever in there, first time I met Pete, but he sounded like he had tons of experience. So I went back into his shop a couple weeks later and got a monroe (which i had had pierced once before by someone else who completely botched it). my piercing is perfect, healed and i love it. and i am in fact going back to see him shortly for some dermals and so on...There are so many tattoo and piercing artists it really is hard to develop a sense of loyalty or commitment to any one in particular, unless ur experience turns out to be exactly what u were hoping for. I can safely say I will go back to Pete for all of my future piercings, regardless of anyone else's convincing arguments and/or advertisements. I've found my piercer. Thanx Pete! :)
Brass Monkey Studios is quite an amazing experience. I've never been to a tattoo shop that was so commited to the craft of creating art. Not only are Frank and Brian two of the best tattoists around, they are both amazing artists. Period. When you walk in the shop, there are no flash boards. They have paintings from local artists, as well as original works that they have created. All of their tattoos are custom pieces of art. They really take a lot of time to work with you on coming up with a design that goes beyond what you thought would have been "good enough". They are tattoo craftsmen. It is comforting knowing that they would never put anything that was bad art on anyone's body, just to make a buck. I am quite proud of displaying the work I got a Brass Monkey. Great art. Great people. Great experience. I highly recommend Brass Monkey Studios.
