Everything there is expensive....

Everything there is expensive. I wanted to get my nose pierced there again and they wanted to charge me $50!! Thats waaaay too expensive they said it was because they clean there piercings with a special liquid. MY A**, it's a huge rip off.

My cousin got her 1st tattoo there and it was small they charged her $120!!! I know tattoos are no lower then $60 no matter the size but that is just a rip off, I do have to say it came out good. (p.s: they only spent an hour on her tattoo.)




i got my first tattoo at Nathan's about 6 months ago,...I noticed the lines aren't all that straight & it ended up getting infected, now looks like sh*t. Am not happy. When I called to tell them about it, the person who tattood me said that I wasn't suppost to follow the directions on the paper he gave me for the, whyd you give it to me then? And then he ended up saying that "he had" to give it to me. thats BS. I'm gonna get mine re-touched, but SOMEWHERE ELSE. I wish I did my research and went somewhere else. UGH

Nathan's- don't go there!

I'd like to share my tattoo nightmare and warn against going to Nathan's Tattoo shop.

Right before my wedding Javier, a tattoo artist at Nathans, botched up a
tattoo cover up job and the shop (Nathan himself) has refused to do
anything about it except
for have the same artist try to fix it!!!
The tatoo artist talked me out of a simple cover up plan and said he would
have my arm complete and looking beautiful for my expensive wedding
after the one session. I
explained I was wearing a pricey sleeveless wedding gown.
The tattoo artist began smoke *** halfway thru the job.
The shop was deserted but for his guy friends that stopped by.
His girlfriend eventually came by as well.
She talked to Javier and had his friends
leave and I nervously asked her to stay as Javier seemed
extremely agitated and stoned at that point
(i had no idea why...he just suddenly became nasty). She stayed for
about an hour as she felt sympathetic to my situation and her boyfriends
That night Javier refused to complete the job he started after
becoming intoxicated...He left my arm a disaster. He informed me he would
not complete it for a month as it would need to heal first. I was horrified
and spent the days before my wedding crying. I had to hide my arm from
I had a custom made sweater made to wear with my wedding dress.
I have been left with no other choice than to have it removed as a few
other artists have said NOTHING can
be done to fix my botched arm without laser removal. The design Javier
chose to cover my old piece was not what we discussed at all.
I wanted a replica...he totally redrew the budist female figure in
his own way making her fat and giving her weird frankenstein hair...
and as i said he left her totally unfinished. He
added in areas of solid black shapes that look as though a five year old got
a hold of a sharpie...they are not at all like the beautiful Japanese
designs he explained that he would use to fill in the
negative space.

I had specifically asked him if it would be complete in that
ONE night as I would
be married in the days to come and he said it would.
He sent me off to my wedding with an embarrassing botch
job...a random mass of black ink sarcastically filling the
middle of my arm.

Over the last year and a half I have been forced to wear long
sleaves through all kinds of weather ... no respectable
tattoo artist felt it could be fixed.

My arm gets 2 inches thicker after laser treatments.
Not to mention the pain, swelling and blistering. I cry through every

My arm is scarred where the laser was done.

The owner of Nathans Tattoo shop in Canoga Park Nathan was very rude about the whole thing. He only offered to have that same tattoo artist try to fix it!!! as if i would actually agree to that. this has cost me so much money...
It has been an emotional nightmare!
