Truly unprofessional. I truly give this business a 0 rating. The manager was very rude and unpleasant. They did not greet us with smiles or attempted to listen to a potential customer. I was a first time customer that went to this business. I asked questions and I was told to leave because I had an attitude. The owner of this business called my personal cell phone the next day threatening, cursing and used a derogatory racial word referring to race, after I left a review on how they treated me. I reported this issue to The Arlington Police Department and blocked their number. Unacceptable behavior from a business owner. PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO RESEARCH AND SPEND YOUR MONEY ON A MORE PROFESSIONAL REPUTABLE BUSINESS.
The owners of this place we’re very unperfessional, and I got a feeling of racism in here because they quoted us a basic tattoo for $500. I feel like they were intimidated because I am a beautiful young white female with a tall handsome black male. Pitiful. I wouldn’t go here if you were looking for an calm pleasant experience
Had excellent service for all my piercings Pete did for me that day i felt no pain for all of them loved the atmosphere highly recommend ! :)
I have known Eric 20 years or so. He has done all of my tattoos quite well. The lines are clean and the color stays! He even matched my husband's handwriting for me after he died for my 1st tattoo! Tattoos have to be cared for correctly as they heal and Eric made sure I knew what to do to have lasting beautiful artwork. 5 tattoos later I am a happy camper!
I went to the kandy shop to get a double cartilage piercing. It was pierced crooked, with the wrong jewelry, AND got infected because of the way it was done. I stopped in this shop to see if they could help me out because it was very painful. They took out the cheap jewelry, cleaned me up, and put the correct jewelry in. Within hours the swelling has gone down, it doesn't throb anymore and I'm so happy. Don't choose cheap guys. I learned the hard way! I highly recommend the chosen one. Nice people and fair prices. Thanks guys!
I have been to the Kandy shop simply to get a cheap tattoo or body piercing.the first time I went I had a very good artist named Scorpio.. He did a lily in the top center of my back below my neck. The next time I came back to see him and him only when they first opened he was basically the only good artist there so I got a geisha lilies around. Now I'm not going to lie its a wonderful tattoo but he just printed both my first tattoo and second tattoo right off the computer. Unlike some tattoo artists they will draw you something up but no most of them do this. The this time was my worst tattoo I have on my back known as the "trap stamp" I wanted a cupcake with candy around it. The person I would have gone to was running late and told me this person was so called as good as him but no he mixed the colors up on what I wanted the icing to be and the wrapper to be. Now looking at it from around the first year I got the tattoo which was years back, the cupcake is so uneven it's laughable not only that but I thought he was going to add candy. Nope no candy,then I wanted words to go under it but he did my cupcake so big it really and truly looks like an ice cream cone but that's not the worst part he wrote the words I wanted to the side in his own hand writing (which was sloppy then he'll) and tattooed his writing on me lol even spelled the word wrong after myself and other told him how to spell "scrumptious" he still didn't do it write.Now go to places that I look at the work they have done previously then I decide if I'm going to get a tattoo from said person and yes it might cost me more but at least there done right.
If I could submit this review without placing a star I would! Went there 30 min ago to get my Tragus pierced n this dude pierced it with a piercing gun instead of a needle n left an earring that had a stud backing to it! I google to see the tragus piercing procedure what they use n my piercing was all wrong! Do not go to the Kandy Shop please!! Idk about the tattoos but the piercings is definitely not correctly done!
Clean, expierenced, professional and every artist there is on point. They excel in all areas and give honest feedback on your ideas. This is not the place for a cheap crappy tat, but if you are looking for a masterpiece that others will compliment on this is it. The tattoos last, keep their color and the lines don't bust. Worth every penny for the work they do.
Just got my second tattoo from Karina, first one was from Audra and LOVE both of them. Brought my son here and he is addicted now, about to get his second. Would not go anywhere but Chosen One Ink for my tats.
I got a belly piercing from Matt. He was very personable, pleasant, answered all my questions and thoroughly explained the procedure. He gave detailed instructions for the subsequent aftercare. There was a very good vibe in the place, and everyone was very nice. Facilities were clean. If the could gove 10 stars, I would. Highly recommend The Chosen One!!
