I got my very first piercing - a VCH- here. Beside of the area of the piercing, I did massive amounts of research and quizzed Nick to make sure he was at least as much as I had absorbed. He passed with flying colors and referenced The Piercing Bible which put me at ease. My only negative is that I wish he would have measured to get a better fitting bar. Even after what little swelling there was went down, the bar was still uncomfortably short, but i went back and they switched it out for a longer one no problem, free of charge. Later when I freaked out because I couldn't unscrew the jewelry, I contacted Tim, the owner, he took my complaints seriously and was very helpful. The girl that came to see him before me was actually there because South Side Piercing messed up doing her dermal. So even though Hot Rod may be pricier than other venues, they're worth it and they have my future business.
Hands down the best frigging, most talented artist in da burgh. If it’s your first tat or 1 millionth, you found the cleanest friendliest and fairest priced place to get inked. yinz aint got to look no further. Go look for yourself. If you don’t get a tat here don’t worry come back later they will fix your ink for you.
