when i moved to corpus,i checked out several tattoo studios before choosing Tattoo Nation. Now i have seen a few reviews,the people thought the artist there were rude,or they didnt like their phone ediquite,or their piercing rejected...even belly buttons have the chance of rejection,and all though the artist were not the politest,they were far from the rudest i came across in other shops here in corpus,and Rene,the first artist i met there,and the first one to tat me,says the F word 3 times a sentence...but i wasnt there looking for a rated g tattoo studio,i was there to find artist i was comfortable with to continue my addiction. Well once you realize he isnt going off on you with all the swearing,you realize he is just very passionate about what he does...he talks 3 miles a minute,but once in his chair,you find out why,he has talent...but anyways,all the guys there do great work. Since i have been tatted by Gabe,and talking with Mike now about my elbow,and im not real big into the piercing,i did have Sketch do a dermal, and i have seen hundreds of piercings done while ive been in the chair or just stopped by to chat with the artist,they always leave very happy. And i have seen then get rude with customer,but every time,it was the customer causing it. If you saw some of the crazies these guys have to deal with,you might understand. So if something doesnt heal quite right,go see them,let them touch you up,the gaurantee their work. Instead of leaving neg reviews trying to mess with the flow. All in all,Tattoo Nation is the only place i get ink,and the guys there very unique individuals. Get to know them. If they are rude to you...you deserve it

THIS IS THE BEST TATTOO SHOP I HAVE EVER SEEN OR HEARD ABOUT IN SOUTH TEXAS. THE ARTIST'S OUT THERE ARE THE GREATEST. I'VE VISITED OTHER SHOPS IN CORPUS CHRISTI, BEFORE GETTING MY FIRST TATTOO DONE. WORK THE MAIN ARTIST TOLD HIM WHAT I WANTED IN A BACK PIECE AND LET HIM ADD AND TAKE AWAY FROM THE DESIGN. IN THREE WEEKS WE HAD A BACK PIECE WENT TO THE ALAMO CITY TATTOO SHOW AND CAME HOME WITH SECOND PLACE FOR BACK MALE PIECE. BEEN GOING THERE FOR APPROXIMATELY 2 YEARS AND WORKING ON A FULL BODY SUIT AND IT IS COMING ALONG REAL WELL. ANOTHER GOOD THING THAT I'M PROUD ABOUT THIS SHOP IS THAT I UNDERSTAND THIS SHOP IS THE ONLY ONE IN SOUTH TEXAS TO SCORE 100% WITH THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT FOR AN INSPECTION. I WOULD STRONGLY SUGGEST CHECKING OUT THIS SHOP. I WOULD ALMOST GUARANTEE WHEN YOU CHECK IT OUT YOU WILL BE GETTING A TATTOO THERE. THE OTHER COOL THING ABOUT THIS SHOP IS OVER 90% OF THE TATTOO'S ARE HAND DRAWN ON THE BODY AND NO TWO ARE THE SAME.
I have had many tattoos done over the years that I have not been happy with in the end, except for one. I went to tattoo nation to get a piercing n while I was there, the dudes were super cool, so I talked about a tatt I been wanting that I been checking around to have done n I got quoted unbelievably reasonable. I went back n got it done, n it looked amazing! So I've been back into that shop numerous times n even had a cover up done, in color! That I was told by another shop, could only be done in black n gray due to size n color. Ppl look at it n never know what was originally there. I'm now a regular there at Tattoo Nation n I recommend anyone to go there n get their ink done perfectly, with being priced amazingly n done by men who r real n all about ur needs n not the $ they make off u. 5 stars!
