From Blu Hanya Tattoo as a rebuttal to Daniel L's review. Yes we did explain to them that we did not want their business anymore. And yes words were exchanged with him because the previous time he was in our shop his wife, who had been tattooed by the artist in the past, inquired about a portrait of their daughter. The artist gave his wife the price, which was fair for the price of portraits and for his quality. His wife was well aware of his portrait prices and quality because she had already gotten a portrait from him. When she went home and told her husband the price, he than came back up to the shop and was very rude to our shop manager badgering and haggling about the price, being very short to her and just talking down to her. she explained the size he thought the tattoo should be was not a tattooable size for a portrait and explained the amount of hours it takes to execute a good portrait and that is why the price was that. the artist was actually cutting her a deal from his normal portrait prices because she was a repeat customer. Her husband still thought it was bogus and left the shop with an attitude. His wife even came up and apologized to the artist and our shop manager on how her husband behaved in our shop. so when he came back in, the artist talked to him about his actions and how he spoke with our shop manager. People need to remember the customer is not always right, and you cannot talk to people in any way you seem fit. to get respect you must give it first. the artist is very passionate and does not condone people mistreating his co-workers. We even offered to go a bit lower on the price of the portrait because he did not want to see her get a poorly done portrait, especially since there are few artist in the area who can truly tattoo a well done portrait. He was not mad that she was going somewhere else for work, but that how her husband acted in our place of business. He does feel a bit of betrayl that he was willing to work with her on the price, as he did with the first portrait he did on her, almost doing it for half his portrait prices. If she would of came in and just talked to us about the price we could of worked with her. Instead her husband came in and belittled our hand crafted permanent work we do and insulted us by giving us such a hard time about the price. Would you work all day on a job putting lots of time and focus into doing your very best and than someone not wanting to pay you what is fair for the work you did? we have bills just like everyone else, this is not a hobby for us but our livelihood, please keep that in mind when talking to people who hand craft anything for you. Included at the top is the portrait of Ozzy Osborne, which was the first portrait he did on her, just to show you his quality of work.

I just went in last night and was tattooed by Alice. She only did the outline for what I wanted because I didn't give her the full description of what I wanted. I am giving her 5 stars because she was so professional and patient. I know if the roles were reversed, I would have punched me in the face, but Alice was so understanding. I gave her an idea, then later changed my mind. I sent her a picture of what I wanted but didn't add all of the details so she did the best with what I gave her. When I went into the shop, I changed the tattoo AGAIN. Rather than get impatient, she just said "I understand. It's permanent and you want it right". I felt terrible, lol, but she is awesome. Granted, so far all I have is the outline of the tattoo that I want but I am so happy with it. I seriously can't wait to go back and get the rest filled in! Alice is a great, professional artist and I'll recommend her to anybody that's looking to get tattooed in the Clarksville area.
One of the best clean tattoo shops I have ever walked into. The artist have their own techniques. And have different styles on custom work. From traditional, new school color bombs, old school, black and white, too what ever you can imagine. When i first walked in with some notes and ideas one of the artist put some ideas to make it all flow together, and asked another artist if he was willing to draw it up for me. They recommend the artist which they know will be able to pull it off, and have more of an experience on the work I asked for. I have enjoyed each and everyone of my tattoos from the artist there. Very kind and enjoyed laughs. Also a very welcoming place to hang out and relax, front desk girls also made me feel welcomed. I have walked in a few shops before where i felt uncomfortable. I highly recommend this place. Never had a bad experience with any of them.
I do not work for Blu Hanya but have been going there multiple times over a back piece they are doing for me. I do not believe they are black listed by the military seeing as I have seen military people in there while get tattooed. Everytime I have went to get a tattoo done by Mathew the owner it has been a great expirience and they were never anything but professional and courteous. They have always given great deals as well and have saved me alot of money on my tattoo, so I do not understand why someone would want to go to another place other than blu hanya, but if they did I could not see anyone working at blu hanya threatening or cursing at a client. This is simplely hard to believe. So anyone getting a tattoo should ignore the negative reviews in my opinion.
It seems they have a few haters on here. Let me explain something to everyone this shop does things totally differently and are very professional. so the tid bit about them rolling their eyes at you about your ideas is bogus. and you wouldnt of talked to an artist if you werent getting a tattoo that day thats not how they do ethings. you would of talked to their front girl. and they have a perfect health score, i know because i asked to see them. do your research people and go into shops. I got a not so good tattoo by a total creeper from someone else in town. they really are awesome artists and can do everything!! They will get my business and ill tell everyone i know!! You guys rock haters are going to hate!!
The people at lbi made me feel comfortable by showing me before I even Sat in the chair that all the needles were still in packaging to ensure cleanliness. Dizzy did my husband and I's tattoos (on my ribs mind you) and was extremely gentle doing so. My husband, already having 11 tattoos already and picky as all get out who touches his skin with a needle, has not been able to find a new tattoo place to make his permanent tattoo shop while in the Clarksville area as he is from Florida and loves lbi. Thank you for the awesome tattoos and we can't wait to see josh for his next one! Thanks a ton!
I made a few calls around different places, but walking into Red Five Tattoo was by far the best place to go around in the area. The artists are amazing and will work with you on whatever your ideas may be. Their ability to comprehend what you want is beyond the best. No matter who you decide to go with there you know you will get killer work! Don't write these guys off cause you haven't heard of them. They are laid back, among the best, will get you taken care of quick! If youhave any doubts email me at cavtrooper2011@Gmail.com, I will gladly give you my photos and recommendations!!!
This is a great place to consider when getting tattoos or piercings!!! I have gotten seventeen tattoos from a different parlor and I am going to All American to get all my tattoos fixed or covered! I love this parlor because it goes against what I experienced at my first parlor. All American is really professional and they really do care if you like your tattoo or not. I just them with my body and my tattoos and hopefully one day you will to. Please consider what I have said when choosing your tattoo parlor!
I first went their for a cosmetic tattoo was told Kara was the best in town and she most certainly was. She has done my eyebrows and eyeliner. I have also had 5 tattoos done by Tim he is also awesome. I had never had a tattoo done that was actually free hand and not done from a stencil and he does ! And I have gotten the best tattoos by far from Tim. They are also very reasonable in their prices. So if you are looking for your next tattoo or a cosmetic tattoo look no further give them a call!!!!!
I flew from Buffalo NY to visit a friend and get a tattoo from LBI and it was completely worth it! One of the most professional shops I've ever been to and work that is flawless. From start to finish my experience was awesome and I recommend LBI to everyone looking to get a tattoo. As someone who has had bad work done in the past, I can say without hesitation these guys are the best! I can't wait to come back and add more LBI work to my collection. See you soon guys!!
