If I could give them 0 stars I would. I paid good money and ended up scarred and feeling like I got screwed. I guess you don't get what you paid for. People please stay away. Read these reviews and make a better choice than I did.

Do not ever go here to get any piercings. I went and got my belly button pierced and it was way to deep. I had another place look at it and they told me I'd never be able to wear regular barbells so I took it out. I few days later I called about wanting my money back and they said that there was no way that it was pierced to deep and I wasn't getting my money back. They told me I could come in and have it redone but not my money. I told them I didn't want it redone because obviously they screwed up the first time. Still nothing. I would not go here to get any piercings at all. I'd send the extra money and go to Kaleidoscope. At least you know you're getting quality work and it'll be done right.

Tattoo virgin, Great experience

My first piece was done by Jon. Couldn't be happier with the work. Scheduled my 2nd with Lucas and looking forward to it.

BEWARE! Nathan did a tattoo for me 2 weeks ago. It was my mothers handwriting. He made copies of her handwriting, placed it on my arm, got it perfectly straight, and started the tattoo... Upon completion, I was HORRIFIED! He didn't follow the lines and ended up misspelling a word and giving me a grammatical error permanently on my skin.. Jon, the owner, refused a refund, stating that I got what I paid for using a "cheap" artist... BEWARE OF THIS "CHEAP" SHOP!

Next Generation Tattoo

I work with someone who highly recommended Next Generation, in particular Billy. Three weeks ago I called to find out the best way to have work done, was directed to come by the facility and speak with Billy and set up an appointment. I drove the 10 miles out to the shop, Billy was busy so I explained what I wanted and showed the tattoo to be covered up to Lucas. We had a fairly involved conversation and he showed my ideas to Billy who must have answered in the affirmative as we then began discussing price, time and looking for a day that would work for both of us. I work 2 jobs, go to school and raise my 5 year old grandson. I do not have a lot of free time, but wanted to get a tattoo that was meaningful to me and looked good while covering up the one that I am not happy with. We set an appointment, I paid $20 to hold my appointment, and showed up early for my appointment. When I arrived no one knew who I was, why I was there or who my appointment was with after I told them my name. Billy seemed surprised he had an appointment at 4:30 and Lucas nor Billy knew what my tattoo was supposed to be. I informed them that I had left my photocopy with them and Lucas says""I;m sure he has it on his wall"", ummmreally? Oh well, I think, busy shop. So I wait, and wait, and wait, now it's half an hour past my appointment time and he is still working on the previous appointment. I ask if he thinks he will be done by 6, and he still has to draw it up and says it will take 1 1/2-2 hours. If we had started on time, maybe I could have been 1/2 an hour late picking up my grandson from the sitter, but I now do not have enough time. Very frustrated! I scheduled what works for me, and I would hope an accomplished artist would know how long it takes to do his work and schedule accordingly. Things happen, I am aware, but as I said before, I have very limited free time. After a 20 mile round trip, with gas prices as they are and my appointment holding fee, I'm out $26.50, and have nothing to show for it. I said I'd have to reschedule, but I don't know what day yet as my schedule changes slightly at one of my jobs. I should have asked for my money and photocopy back, but I just left. I am very disappointed and the terms ""professional and Next Generation will not be used in the same sentence by me. Thanks guys!

The first time I went there wa...

The first time I went there was to get my nose pierced when I was 16, when I was 18 got my first tattoo their, just a couple days ago got another tattoo. They are so friendly and honest, they are not the kind of people to rip you off and I love that! They do great work and will make you feel comfortable. They are the only Tattoo Parlor I trust and REFUSE to go to anyone else!

Screw this shop

I went in there wanting to finish up a sleeve and stood there for 30mins and NOT one person spoke to me. I was more than fair as well. One artist was in the back drawing, and that was fine. The other "artist" was tattooing an outline of a cat on some chick's arm. I waited for them to break and when she asked to go smoke, I was thinking "thank god, now he will talk to me about the work I'm wanting to have done." BUT NOPE, INSTEAD HE WALKED RIGHT BY ME AND WENT TO SMOKE WITH HER. I literally stood there for another couple minutes thinking to myself "WTF just happened?" So I walked back out to my car, walking right by him and her, and still not a single word was said, in fact he stared at me like I had done something wrong. So, in a mad rage I drove to another tattoo shop wondering WHY Next Generation Tattoo would spend so much money on advertising to get people in their shop, and then allow their hired help to ruin it? Just seemed stupid to me.

I did finally get some ink done, but first I had to find someone who wanted to work, and that certainly wasn't Next Generation Tattoo.

Overpriced, skill 4 out of 10

they want too much, their work is not that great,

I'm sorry that we may be a little more expensive than some of our competitors, but I've seen work that the cheapest studios in town do and believe me you'll be better off paying a little more and getting something awesome than saving a buck and getting something ugly... Here at Next Generation we definitely try to give our customers more than they pay for.
