the employees are funny and nice -- but I got my piercing just 2 days ago and the jewel part of my flat back stud came off. already? now its just a spike through my ear. i have to go to a different shop (since I'm out of town) to get a replacement stud / re-pierce it. not happy about that.
I won't get a tattoo or piercing anywhere else. And considering I have to drive 55 miles to get there, that says a lot. The people are great & very understanding. I love the tattoo's I've gotten there!!
Everybody there is super nice and friendly, but both my gf and I got tattoos there (not our first tattoos, but our first at this place) and had some problems. Her's became infected and we had to go to the doctor and get her put on antibiotics, and mine has quite a bit of janky line work in it. Also I got another Helix piercing there and they didn't have the right sized needle...had to use a size up and then let the piercing close around it. The prices were super reasonable, and the staff was incredibly accepting and friendly as I said, but I doubt we'll be going back there to get any more work done.
HottDogg is a highly recommended, professional artist and I'm more than happy to have wonderful work done by him. The place was small, but comfy, the staff were very nice and helpful, and what can I say I absolutely LOVE my new tattoo! I most definitely will be going back for more.
