State Of The Art Tattooing
05/06/2010Provided by Citysearch -
My husband got both of his tattoos here and they did an amazing job on both! I have a few friends who also got very detailed work done and their tattoos turned out amazing as well. The artists were very patient and accommodating as one visit we actually had our infant with us. It didn't seem to bother them at all. I'm actually hoping to go this week or next to get my next tattoo. I can't wait!!!
I had two different tattoos done at this shop by two different artists, and they were both badly done and had to be redone at other shops. (Yeah, Yeah, I know. But I figured the first was a fluke - any shop can have one mediocre artist). The artists here seem mostly bored and uninspired, not very responsive to input from the person being tattooed and and they could use some lessons in customer relations. The first artist I talked to (and who ended up doing my first work here) acted like I was some kind of imposition, interrupting his day. The whole time he was tattooing me he kept interrupting his work to log onto ebay to check on the progress of some auction. The second artist was a really nice guy but complained the whole time that he was tired of tattooing for a living and wanted to quit and go into some other line of work. When I expressed some concerns about the 'finished' work - which in my opinion wasn't even close to being finished - he gave all sorts of excuses and reasons for not continuing - he thought it looked great, it wasn't big enough for the detail I wanted, this or that couldn't be changed. Funny, because I subsequently went to another shop and the artist there had not trouble repairing and refining the tattoo and making it look like it should have to begin with. The shop just isn't very good. If you've got some real simple off the wall piece of flash you want done, these are probably your guys. If you want more complex or custom work, I would advise you to look elsewhere.
