Lovely work originally, terrible followup. I had my entire thigh done by Kyle Olsen (who was appointed to me without asking if I wanted anybody specific), but it was an overall wonderful experience. His placement was perfect the first time, and he was a joy to speak with while working on my leg. Unfortunately, though, I will never go back to this shop. I was told to call in about two weeks to get touch-up information, and wasn't helped at all while on the phone. His card itself only has the shop's phone number as contact information, and when calling the shop, I was only able to speak with their desk guy, who was vague when asking questions and absolutely useless in giving me any more information on when to call again. I contacted Kyle himself over Facebook, and he told me when he was free and set up an appointment with me for a certain day at 12. I waited until 12:30 in the parking lot, and he didn't show up. They don't open for business until 1, so I thought maybe he meant 1 or was caught up somewhere else. I waited until 1 and went in, and was told that they didn't have any number to contact him at. Finally around 2, he came in and glanced at me as if he was surprised. He looked at the computer and said I had no appointment, and refused to do my touch up because of it. I later nicely contacted him again, saying I'd get a hold of him later for a touch-up, and he didn't even respond.
I decided to finally get my lip pierced, and my brother decided to get his first tattoo. I did some quick internet research, and came across Doc's. We made our appointment, and two days later we were in the shop. The shop itself is incredibly nice looking. It's clean, well organized, and looks very professional. The people were amazing. Doc and his wife couldn't of been more kind. I got my piercing first. It was almost completely painless— and I had been worrying that entire morning. The longest part was washing my mouth out beforehand! I was done in ten minutes. My brother had a very difficult tattoo to do, but it was nothing for Doc. He finished the design in less than two hours, and helped my brother as to where color could be added to make the design even more beautiful. Most amazing, however, was the fact that Doc noticed that my brother's eyebrow had been terribly pierced, and that the piercing was starting to be rejected. Doc pierced his other eyebrow. Afterward, we found out that the place that pierced my brother's eyebrow had used a belly button ring! No wonder it was rejecting. All of this was done in around two hours. I couldn't be more happier with my experience, and I hope that everyone who is getting either a piercing or tattoo decides on Doc. And to think I was going to go to the same place that did my brother's eyebrow!
I have 5 tattoos from Greg at Doc Holliday's and in every case, without exception, he has delivered exactly what I wanted. I like to design my own tattoos, and Greg is perfect at replicating them on my body, and has great suggestions on detail, design, sizing and location that have helped me make good final decisions. I had him do a bar code tattoo on my leg last year, it's what's called a "3 of 9" code, that I picked up somewhere and designed it to say "ABDCTE", short for abductee, as in, I've been abducted by aliens before and then returned with this tattoo so they can track me. This is how detailed Greg's work is... I went to Walmart after the tattoo was healed and had a clerk use a handheld scanner to scan the barcode on my leg. It beeped, and they said they guess it didn't work, "it only says something like ABDCTE...". I laughed and told them that that was exactly right! My girlfriend has also been tattooed by him [a very realistic looking spider, with shadows and everything] and love his work as well. I highly recommend him if you're looking for a tattoo!
