I got my first tattoo here recently. Straight lines weren't straight and circles weren't circular. It was also extremely overpriced. I'm very disappointed and I will not be returning.
I would not suggest going here! Not very clean, and super unprofessional! I got a tattoo from a guy there. Can't remember his name. I don't think he ever told me it in fact! Big African-American Bald guy! I got a tattoo from him. I wasn't pleased but lied and said I was when I left. Only to notice I had a Hidden penis in my tattoo! While I was there. I was Very uncomfortable. The guy tattooing me was flirting and tried to make a pass on me! My tattoo was on my upper thigh and he kept "accidentally" putting his hand too close to my lady bits! DO NOT GO THERE! Especially not to this jerk! Super unprofessional! I will not be back to him or any of the shops!
We took our 8 year old daughter here to have Andre pierce her ears. She was extremely nervous and he was incredible with her. Just the right amount of patience and humor. I would highly recommend him.
I had recently gotten my septum pierced here, only to realize the next day that it was pierced in the completely wrong area. I researched quite a bit online because I was concerned about the pain I was having. I felt as if my nose had been kicked upwards or even broken. I knew this wasn't right so after three days of not even being able to smile I went to a different tattoo shop where I found out that they pierced it way too far back in a thick spot where the jewelry definitely should not be. It was almost impossible to even flip it down. I had to pay to have it removed and the pain was excruciating. I would not suggest getting a septum piercing here, or any at all actually. On top of this unfortunate situation, I was informed by the second tattoo shop that a paper informing you of proper after care is ALWAYS supposed to go home with you after you get a piercing. American pride tattoos did not send me home with one of these and barely explained how to clean and take care of the piercing. I am not usually one to write a review, but I thought it was more than necessary due to the unprofessional and unfortunate situation that I endured.
Andre is awesome at what he does! He touched up my tats with his own color styles! Love it!!!hes such a cool funny nice guy too! Loved my experience here! I'll def be coming back!!
Andre is one of the best tattoo artists I have ever had. He is so talented and has such an eye for the art. He is always adding his artistic edge to his work and it is simply great. Not only that, but he is one of the sweetest guys in the world. I would recommend him and American Pride in Clarkston to anybody.
Andre always does a great job on my tattoos, makes it enjoyable, and make you conferrable. I always enjoy getting my tattoos done by Andre.
Going back for more... and more! I've been putting off a sleeve for over five years until I could find just the right artist to get the level of detail I wanted. I saw Scotts's work while trolling around the net and from the moment I started talking to him about the sleeve, it was clear he was the artist I'd been searching for. He's outgoing, very funny, easy to talk to & extremely informative. His talent in the traditional is PHENOMENAL! I'll be collecting more of Scott's work for years to come! As far as the Avatar shop, it's super clean, very nice, one of the nicest shops I have ever seen. It doesn't get better than this.
