Had both my tattoos done here, absolutely love this place. Conversation is great, and they’re very professional. Answered any questions I had. Will be coming back again!
Please don't go here, for your own sake. Dan swore at my girlfriend and almost permanently damaged her septum with the piercing and refused any attempt to fix it.
I had two tattoos done there. The first one is so awful it's embarrassing. It's all blurry and no one can read it. It's only two words!!! MY ***** I gave them a second chance with another artist and it turned out great. I wanted to get in very recently and they acted like they could care less about my business because it was something small. I even was willing to come back later in the evening, plus they said it would only take a half hour to do. I had been really excited about getting it done, and they totally ruined my night. Very disappointing AND very disappointed.
I went in with my 2 daughter's because both my girls talked about getting tatoos. My oldest is learning disable but high functioning and wanted one for her birthday. Juan met with us and explained everything so well. My daughter had a picture of what she wanted and he created a template for it. She had it placed on her left wrist. I was very nervous for her thinking she wouldn't sit still and would not like the "pain". Juan did a great job, offering to take a break for her...turns out she never moved or winced. It took longer to prepare everything than it did for the actual tatoo!!! He even took pictures and showed us how to care for it. My daughter is ecstatic and it was a great 22nd birthday gift for her. I had no idea what to expect and was very surprised. It was clean, orderly and well organized. Now my other daughter wants one for her 19th Birthday and is trying to convince me to get one!!
My sister and I both got work done there this week and Joe was amazing! Great artist,really pays attention to detail, and he actually cares about the satisfaction of his clients unlike some places I've been. Will only go here and highly reccomend if you plan on getting anything to go here!
Best tattoo place ever! Price is reasonable, work is professional. All the artists listen to your requests and they do exactly what you ask for. they are all very talented. The place is very clean and they even offer free wifi for while you wait. I wouldn't go to any other place to get my tattoos and piercings, these guys are the BEST!
These guys are amazing! I had never gotten a piercing before and decided on Black Ink to get my first (navel piercing) based on hearing from friends that they were good. The shop itself is very homey and there are couches and a ton of flash art and it just feels very relaxed and non threatening. Dan is the best. He is the sweetest guy and really takes the time with you to make sure you understand what's going on and to make sure you're happy. There was no pain at all with him piercing me and he told me to call if I had any questions. I'll be returning to Black Ink for all my tattoo/piercing needs in the future even though they're an hour away from me. I wouldn't trust anyone else.
My SO and I went in to get a small symbol put on our ring fingers, and before I could even explain what we wanted the woman working there rudely cut me off and told me that they don't do hand tattoos on anyone unless the person walking in has more tattoos than THEY do (in a very snotty voice), and then proceeded to lecture me on the negative social stigma of hand tattoos. I am a 39 year old corporate professional making a very good living, I'm pretty sure I can handle my own image decisions. Now, if she would have expressed concern over the difficulty of healing a hand tattoo, or how the quality may not be up to par because of the nature of the skin on hands, or even how it would fade more quickly because of how often hands are used and washed and exposed to sun, that would have been understandable. What I did not need is a snotty attitude and big brother lecture.Since 20 of the reviews on here are from the same week in 2008, I'm assuming all of those are fake, or friends trying to up the rating. This place was not impressive, don't waste your time.
