Great work, clean, overall a good time. I have been to several shops around the valley, and warned about the others. Before I tried SLC ink out before I had never heard of it. I was pleasantly surprised. I checked out the portfolios on the table in the waiting room, which hardly do any justice to the artists they belong to. And watched some of the work coming out. It was some amazing stuff! I have also had several piercings there. I will never go anywhere else. The service and staff were amazing and knew what they were talking about. They were more than willing to answer every question I could think up, and treated me more like a friend than a customer. The place does not look like a generic parlor either, with accent walls and paintings instead of the expected flash and cramped spaces. They encourage more custom work than "pick one off the wall", and spend their time making sure you get exactly what you want, and understand that the art will be on your body forever. They treat every customer like the only customer, and give special attention to every detail and every concern. I would recomend no one else.
I have gotten a total of three piercings from Koi, and they have all healed beautifully and been wonderful. Except for the fact that my double nostrils aren't exactly even - but to be fair, I got them six months apart and by separate piercers. You can't tell unless you stare very hard, for a long time. I've never had a problem with any of the piercings or jewelry, but I will not be going back to Koi for any of my piercing needs in the future. Every single time I visited, whether it be to get pierced, buy jewelry, or to support a friend, the front desk staff has treated me very, very rudely. They were never accommodating or helpful, and it seemed as if the girl were acting like they were better than the guests. I felt extremely uncomfortable, and unless they hire different desk folks, I will not be going back. The piercings, piercers, and jewelry are superb, the customer service, is not.
I recently had my nipples pierced at Koi. I was greeted at the front desk from a smiling and friendly young woman who assisted me with multiple questions. She was extremely help helpful and informative, her friendly and sweet personality helped start the piercing process of very easy. The experience got better as Patrick made the some what uncomfortable situation feel comfortable with his sense of professionalism. The atmosphere was very clean and comfortable and If you are into exotic and just different types of jewelry they have a ton of it. I would definitely recommend Koi if you are looking for a great place to be pierced.
