I had a great experience at Nuclear Ink. The staff was very friendly and the artist (Jesse Neese) really put me at ease. I love the fact that the shop is all custom so every tattoo is unique and different. I first came to Nuclear Ink with a vague idea of what I wanted (Van Gogh's Starry Night, but in space) and the artist seemed almost excited to do the tattoo as I was to get it. Nuclear Ink was the third place I checked out when I decided to get this tattoo and the artist's and staff's attitude combined with the books of examples of what the artist can do convinced me that this was the right place to have my work done.
I've been pierced twice by Lee at LC and he's so attentive and SUPER clean. He puts you at ease if you're nervous, and is super funny. I have had lots of friends who have gotten their noses pierced elsewhere and gotten extremely infected. In the 5 years since he pierced my nose, I haven't had ONE problem. He recently did my industrial piercing and it looks PERFECT and doesn't hurt AT ALL. He assured me healing time would be 6-12 weeks and it's been 3 days and feels like I've had it pierced forever. He's so nice and really knows what he's doing. I definitely recommend Lee at LC for your piercings!
Talented artists for sure. But 2nd time in & I was treated very unprofessionally. Front counter staff clearly unorganized. & gave artist incorrect info. My character was attacked in front of other customers based purely off misinformation given by front counter staff. I was in the middle of finishing a tattoo & sadly I'm now in search of a new artist. I will not go back there & will not recommend them either. This is coming from a person who has numerous tattoos & takes this artwork very seriously. Very very sad I was treated this poorly. I took this incident very personally.
