This house of horrors is now thankfully close for good. Joe is NOT license to piercing or tattoo and was permanently closed by the health department for forging a fake license and extremely UNCLEAN conditions. Joe is now in Stillwater under the name Religious ink. If you see the name stay away for your own safety. Oh an I forgot to mention he reuses needles.
Have had other tattoos done & attempted to get other tattoos done in another state, & between having the run of the mill not being open during posted business hours, & DAYS between the initial contact & actually having a space, the other shops made me mad. Joe actually answered the phone when I called his afternoon, offered to make & KEPT the appointment we set for this evening, AND did my work & my friends work, start to finish color & all in less than 2 hours. The tattoos turned out spectacularly, AND he was very personable. As a Christian myself, it was even better that he runs a physically clean shop as well as a shop that holds to Christian moral standards as far as what he will & won't tattoo. Am coming back for MANY more pieces-3 in the next couple of months! There aren't enough words to express how impressed I am with Red Dirt Ink & with Joe. I will be exclusively going to Red Dirt for my work from here on out! I wish I could post pictures of his work compared to my other tattoos-the difference is phenomenal! Thank you, Joe! It's been a long road of searching for a talented, reputable, AFFORDABLE artist that's not wrapped up in the seedy subculture that seems to be so prevalent in most (not all, but definitely in the majority) tattoo/piercing shops.
This is the absolute best tattoo shop I have ever been in! Joe and Nicole are great!!! The atmosphere is wonderful!! We told them what we wanted and they drew it up for us and made it better than we could have imagined!! I will most definitely be going back there for all my future tattoo work!
I had a cover up done yesterday and it is absolutly amazing...he (Joe) was very professional and u cant even tell i had the other one...Thanks so much...i know if i get anymore i will be going there
