when i moved to corpus,i checked out several tattoo studios before choosing Tattoo Nation. Now i have seen a few reviews,the people thought the artist there were rude,or they didnt like their phone ediquite,or their piercing rejected...even belly buttons have the chance of rejection,and all though the artist were not the politest,they were far from the rudest i came across in other shops here in corpus,and Rene,the first artist i met there,and the first one to tat me,says the F word 3 times a sentence...but i wasnt there looking for a rated g tattoo studio,i was there to find artist i was comfortable with to continue my addiction. Well once you realize he isnt going off on you with all the swearing,you realize he is just very passionate about what he does...he talks 3 miles a minute,but once in his chair,you find out why,he has talent...but anyways,all the guys there do great work. Since i have been tatted by Gabe,and talking with Mike now about my elbow,and im not real big into the piercing,i did have Sketch do a dermal, and i have seen hundreds of piercings done while ive been in the chair or just stopped by to chat with the artist,they always leave very happy. And i have seen then get rude with customer,but every time,it was the customer causing it. If you saw some of the crazies these guys have to deal with,you might understand. So if something doesnt heal quite right,go see them,let them touch you up,the gaurantee their work. Instead of leaving neg reviews trying to mess with the flow. All in all,Tattoo Nation is the only place i get ink,and the guys there very unique individuals. Get to know them. If they are rude to you...you deserve it
Tina did my first tattoo removal session yesterday and I couldn't be more impressed. She was very quick, she told me what to expect and it was pretty much exactly what she said it would be (except it didn't hurt as bad as I thought it would). All of the artists I talked with while in there are a…
12. Piercing Pagoda
Worst service ever! Walked up to the counter and was looking at the earrings to pierce my one year old twins ears with. A girl walks over to help me and says,"what do you want?" I tell her I'm there to get my girls ears pierced then she says,"well how old are they?" (Very rudely) I tell her thei…
Walked in while a few people were leaving... I wasn't recognized as a customer for a few minutes. And the couple who walked in after me were waited on first. After getting the front desks attention I was very pleased. The employees were personable and funny. Piercer was friendly, informative and…

I've known Danielle Koerth since we were kids and she was the smartest kid in our entire school, needless to say the most gifted tattoo artist in a 100 mile radius. I never pegged her for a tattoo artist back in the day but it doesn't surprise me that she took this industry by storm and is absol…
24. Shaws Tattoo
Okay so I've personally known Benny Shaw since we were kids and have been inside his germ-infested, dusty, poorly lit tattoo joint a few times watching some poor bastards getting tattooed by both he and his dad. I also know several of his former clients and have seen the atrocious work he's done…
I'm shopping around for customer reviews, as many do. I stumble across this post wondering if it's real or not, as I do with all posts since I've noticed vindictive ex employees/friends/etc post poor reviews as well as companies posting good reviews for their own companies. I've come to the conclusion that this post in particular didn't matter- Customers are always right when it comes to what they want on their body. If I want to be covered in pink polka dots you have no right to tell me it would look better in orange. I have to look at it for the rest of my life, not you. That comment alone makes me not want to visit your business and only backs up the customers complains- You're rude and arrogant. I understand you want to make "suggestions" to what " might "be better, but to say "the customer is not always right" is wrong. To boot, that makes every other post after this one look fake because they all claim you guys are "Oh so nice and professional without that 'rockstar' attitude" .... So why the 4 stars? Because for all I know you're talented despite your lack of social skills. Why not 5? Because I've never been there. I'm giving my best attempt of a neutral review rating. I'm just here to say that I'm sure I"m not the only one who has read that and said "Wow" and "walked out the door." You may want to think about that.
THIS IS THE BEST TATTOO SHOP I HAVE EVER SEEN OR HEARD ABOUT IN SOUTH TEXAS. THE ARTIST'S OUT THERE ARE THE GREATEST. I'VE VISITED OTHER SHOPS IN CORPUS CHRISTI, BEFORE GETTING MY FIRST TATTOO DONE. WORK THE MAIN ARTIST TOLD HIM WHAT I WANTED IN A BACK PIECE AND LET HIM ADD AND TAKE AWAY FROM THE DESIGN. IN THREE WEEKS WE HAD A BACK PIECE WENT TO THE ALAMO CITY TATTOO SHOW AND CAME HOME WITH SECOND PLACE FOR BACK MALE PIECE. BEEN GOING THERE FOR APPROXIMATELY 2 YEARS AND WORKING ON A FULL BODY SUIT AND IT IS COMING ALONG REAL WELL. ANOTHER GOOD THING THAT I'M PROUD ABOUT THIS SHOP IS THAT I UNDERSTAND THIS SHOP IS THE ONLY ONE IN SOUTH TEXAS TO SCORE 100% WITH THE HEALTH DEPARTMENT FOR AN INSPECTION. I WOULD STRONGLY SUGGEST CHECKING OUT THIS SHOP. I WOULD ALMOST GUARANTEE WHEN YOU CHECK IT OUT YOU WILL BE GETTING A TATTOO THERE. THE OTHER COOL THING ABOUT THIS SHOP IS OVER 90% OF THE TATTOO'S ARE HAND DRAWN ON THE BODY AND NO TWO ARE THE SAME.
This is the first review I've ever posted, but that is how much I loved my experience with Tina and microblading my eyebrows. I am from Houston and made the trip just to see her. She was awesome to talk to and ease any anxiety. She numbed my brows so I felt no discomfort at all! I have naturally red hair and she did an amazing job at matching the pigment. I am so happy I found her and will recommend her to anyone wanting cosmetic tattooing. She asked for pictures of how I was drawing mine on, and what I wanted. While working she measured everything to make sure it was even and asked how I was liking the way it looked or if I wanted more added. The apt included a cool aftercare kit and a 6 week followup/touchup apointment. If you think this is something you might enjoy, it is worth not having to draw your brows on everyday and deal with the breakouts makeup causes!
I have had many tattoos done over the years that I have not been happy with in the end, except for one. I went to tattoo nation to get a piercing n while I was there, the dudes were super cool, so I talked about a tatt I been wanting that I been checking around to have done n I got quoted unbelievably reasonable. I went back n got it done, n it looked amazing! So I've been back into that shop numerous times n even had a cover up done, in color! That I was told by another shop, could only be done in black n gray due to size n color. Ppl look at it n never know what was originally there. I'm now a regular there at Tattoo Nation n I recommend anyone to go there n get their ink done perfectly, with being priced amazingly n done by men who r real n all about ur needs n not the $ they make off u. 5 stars!
Tina did my eyebrows and I am completely satisfied with them and my whole experience with her. She is very experienced and makes you feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. She doesn't force nor try to influence your decision to go through with it or not. She will explain everything she is going to do from start to finish, then you can decide if you want to continue. I chose to continue and I'm so glad I did. My confidence level has increased so MUCH! I get compliments on my eyebrows everywhere I go. People come up to me and grab my face just so they can get a closer look lol. They cannot believe it is tattoo make up. They look so REAL and so perfect. If you are an indecisive customer considering to do this, I say go for it and worry not. You will be satisfied if you do!
I was visiting Corpus Christi for work and I wanted a tattoo. Pinnacle was the only place in the area that I found with awesome reviews so I decided to visit. They were friendly, helpful and the place was really clean. I got tattooed by Christian and he did a great job and gave me some helpful suggestions that I wouldn't have thought of about placement on the tattoo I got. I actually wanted to tattoos and he wouldn't do one of them (I wanted sansikrt in all read ink with no black outline) because he said the area was to small and over time it would spread and look like a blob, you know thats a sign of a good artist that isn't just trying to get your money. If I ever visit Corpus Christi again I will be back for more tattoos!
Sometimes people that don't know very much about tattoos often think that you can just tattoo anything you would like and it would look great. Most shops in town will just tattoo it. This is the best shop in town and probably all of south Texas. They work with clients to give you the best tattoo possible, but they also guide the clients in a direction that is also tattoo correct. I'm not sure what lady you were referring too because there is only 1 lady that works there and she does not look old. I have been going to pinnacle for several years now and if you could see some of the requests and people that come through the door you might understand. In the tattoo industry the customer is not always right.
i walked into this shop a little nervous thinking about what kind of people and art I'd find on the other side of that door. i was very pleased when as soon as i walked in they stopped what they were doing and greeted me. they asked what i had in mind for my tattoo and they got to work. they listened to all my input and nothing was turned down just tweaked here and there to make it better. the environment at this shop is so friendly and welcoming. my tattoo looks awesome and i know there is no one else out there with my same tatttoo, its one of a kind. they work with you all the way because they want to make sure theyre doin just what you asked for.
I've had some help with piercings done by Don. He was very gentle and made sure that none of the gential piercings he was working with pitched in any way. Both Israel and Don are excellent piercers. I highly recommend them both. JoJo, my tattoo artist, is so full of ideas, you have to slow him down...and the job he does is outstanding. You will never be disappointed with his work. He is particularly adapt at shading, but I'd have to say that he is just one hellava great artist. He is also very friendly, fun, talkative and highly intelligent. I would highly recommend him as well!
