I visited Shavon and Nelson for the second time today, and as always their spirits were high, and artistic abilites on point. A fun pair to be around for the time you're laying on the table getting your tattoo, full of interesting conversation and wisdom. I'll be returning for my free touch-up and my third tattoo on August 5th and will no doubt be pleased again. Truly a 5 star tattoo parlor and the best in SC for sure.
Adam was very professional, didn't mind talking while tattooing, did an amazing job on a 2 hour cover up and walk in on a Saturday. Very pleased with the work and atmosphere. Can't wait to go back for more ink. Highly recommendedand affordable can't wait for next appointment.
This was my first tattoo, and I was nervous. Shavon explained what was going to happen all the way through. The tattoo is a beautiful watercolor cat. The colors are gorgeous, and I can't wait until I can go back for the next one!
Shavon was so patient with me changing my mind. She is so talented. I will be back for more if it is to fix what I have or to get more. I left a very special idea with her and she made it come alive. She has earned my trust and my business.
Went here for my first big tattoo and couldn’t have been more at ease before and during the process! Nelson did my tattoo and he was attentive and kind. His attention to detail is amazing. He took my idea and made it better than I could’ve ever imagined. The atmosphere is great and the shop is clean and cozy and it was very entertaining to watch him and his wife, Shavon, interact with each other. Two great people working in a truly exceptional shop! When I visit home again, I will definitely come back!
Tried to surprise my wife with a very small piece done here, because its supposed to be one of the best and was told we could work something out for last Sunday. We drove all the way there (about an hour for us) and arrive to a closed shop. Had to call them 3-4 different times before anyone answered. When they did answer the guy I think Nelson, was polite and helpful then a younger lady got on the phone and was abrasive when she didn't remember the appointment until I told her what I wanted for my wife, then it hit her and she started apologizing and telling me she tried to accommodate me in a way they don't normally do, even though she was the one that said Sunday would work and even threw out a specific time. I was offered the chance to come in next weekend so they tried which is why the 2 stars instead of one, just a disappointing experience over all. I'm sure the work would have been great but the service wasn't the best for me.
I loved my experience at Purple Lotus, and I love my tattoo! No doubt, I will definitely be returning if I ever decide I need more ink. Shavon is talented, knowledgeable, and it is clear she cares about her clients.
The best in SC hands down.. I had been to several tattoo shops to inquire about getting a tattoo and no one made me feel more welcomed and actually excited to do my tattoo than Shavon. She really makes you feel like family with the warming atmosphere and her desire to actually fully custom your tattoo, I could not have asked for a better experience. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
Best tattoo experience I've ever had, hands down. They are very friendly, easy-going, professional, and talented. First-rate in every way.
Shavon is awesome. She really takes the time to make sure you're happy and satisfied with the tattoo design and her work. I recommend her to everyone I know.
