Derrick is the best!! He did my first tattoo, so he ran me through the steps of making sure everything is safe if I ever get one somewhere else and even made sure I was good with the needle before he started. The artwork was amazing and I am definitely going back to him when I want my next one!!! :)
ed is a great tattoo artist i have no complaints about the quality of his work, my complaint is on the way i was treated , his customer service june 14 i had an app. for myself and a friend, , we had booked six weeks in advance. got there and was told by ed that we didn't have an app. until july 14 , we left and came home , i checked my email from ed and we did have an app. so i called him and was told by his assistant that he was busy and couldn't come to the phone, i explained to him that we did have an app. and sent him the confirmation email that ed had sent to me. i asked if ed could call me asap, after two hours i called back, again told he was busy , i explained that my friend took the day off work and could we work something out, i was told come back july 14th. wow...what kind of customer service was that. over the next few days i left a message text and emailed ed, never heard back from him. no apology, no call totally blown off . bad customer service
Great work, from all the artists in the shop, I recommend this shop before you go anywhere else, come here first!
Got my first tattoo here which turned out AWESOME! Shaun did an amazing job. He made me feel comfortable right from the start. Great experience will be back!
Excellent art cutom art. All my tatts were done by this great artist. Highly recommended.
I've had 4 tattoos done at Hard Core by Dani Lazi and have always walked away very pleased with the work he has created for me. He always takes what I think I want and gives me so much more. He is a true artist and always makes me feel comfortable when I'm in his chair. I think it's time for another visit soon!
Ive been getting tattooed at hardcore for almost 10 years by danny lazi aka phatboy. I will neber step foot into another shop again. My tattoos are clean, vibrant, readable, and exactly what i wanted. Danny has such a great understanding of not only his trade, but people aswell. Ive personally witnessed some very difficult customers leave with the biggest smiles afyer being tattooed by him. Hes very light handed, and patient with me, because i can be a cry baby. Lol but i will never let another person tattoo me other than him. Id follow him anywhere. I highly recomend paying him a visit!!
I went in a last week with my girl. She wanted a piercing and i wanted a tattoo. I was hoping for fat boy but he wasnt available. So we decided to just get a piercing for her. Firstly the piercer didnt even acknowlage me or my girl when we tried to speak to him, he just looked at his phone. The guy at the desk made it seem like i was bothering him. He spoke to me like i was stupid, which i can assure you i am not. And proceeded to talk to another guy about smoking and pulled weed out of his pocket. I dont know if he was trying to impress my girl, but it didnt work. He was really rude, unprofessional, abd disrespectful. We decided to leave. Ive never felt so unwelcomed in my entire life. I will never re enter hardcore again while that joke of an employee is there. Which is ashame because ive heard and seen nothing but amazing tattoos come out of there. If the owner sees this please feel free to email me directly because if that was happening in my business i would most definatly want to fix it asap. I cant imagine what other people were made to feel coming in and out of there.
I had been thinking about getting my other nostril pierced for my birthday. I decided to go to Ink Spot tattoo after briefly reviewing their shop online. I walked in spontaneously a few days before my birthday and it was a little awkward when I went inside. There was a guy and a girl sitting behind the counter and they were cordial but kind of cold. Neither of them introduced themselves, even when I said I was going to go though with the nose piercing. I previously had gotten (and healed successfully and uneventfully) a nostril piercing on the other side of my nose so Louisianna (whose name I got from my waiver) didn't explain anything about the procedure and didn't offer aftercare instructions until I asked. She also had me pick out jewelry from the display case in and took it directly back into the piercing room without sterilizing it. I should have left at this point. She took me and my boyfriend to the piercing room, wiped down my nose with alcohol and then took great care in marking my nose to get it to match my other one precisely (for which I am grateful for). She took both her needles and her clamps out of sealed packages and took a bit to set up while we chatted. When I asked her, she said that she had been piercing for a total of 5 years; a little inexperienced, but I was still willing to give it a shot. The piercing itself was painful-much more painful than I remembered my first nostril piercing being. She poked me with the needle once before even doing the piercing, SLOWLY put the needle through my nose, and then stuck the inside of my nose with the needle on the way out. She bent the jewelry so that it would accommodate the swelling, but it was so long it kept poking the inside of my nose. I think most of the mistakes she made were pretty much due to inexperience. I'm not a piercer (nor do I claim to be) but I personally trust someone with a little more experience under their belt. I will not be returning to ink spot again for a piercing. Ill be going to Keith at Cowpok for all of my work --as should anyone who reads this.
