High Caliber is the absolute best place for all the work you want, or need done. The staff is simply the best in the west. I have recommended this place to all of my friends, and I have never heard a complaint yet. All of the artists are top notch, and incredible at what they do. All of the staff treat people with the up most respect, and are always there if you need a question answered, or are concerned about something. I also love the way that they make everything that they do totally unique, with a twist to make it someone's own special thing.

I went to High Caliber to get ...

I went to High Caliber to get my Industrial piercing done about 2 months ago. The other day i went to the mall to get a different bar for my ear. While I was talking to the lady , which had a lot of experience with piercings told me that the way the bar is pierced in my ear is not positioned the right way. She asked me where i had got it done i told her High Caliber and she knew where it was and told me that this place was not ideal for getting piercings. She told me to try a place called Midwest Tattooing Company on 56th nad Keystone and that they have better piercings and they do it the right way. I just wanted to say that when i went home that night I tryed my bar out in my ear , it does not fit because the person who pierced my ear put it up too high. And one more thing i will not be coming back for anyother piercings or tattoos.

Best in Town

What a great place to get a Tattoo done! This establishment has a great family atmosphere, with great people working to make you feel at ease when you are uncertain of the venture you are entering. The artwork is the best ever. Their recent winnings of 10 first place trophies speaks for itself, and now a great article in Thursdays July 29ths Indy West news paper. Why to go guys! Keep up the good work and we will continue to pass the word! People from other states (relatives of mine) thank you too. they have passed the word to people in their hometowns. So look out new customers are coming!..Westley

Clean,Professional,Friendly

The people above who are writing negative comments really should do their homework. This shop is no longer ""Atomic"" it hasn't been for about 5 years. It's owned and ran by completely different people.
I've been to and had work done by many shops around town and ""High Caliber"" is one of the most professional,friendliest,cleanest, and above all most knowledgeable shops in the city. Don't take my word visit this shop and then visit some of the others and see for yourself.

The Place To Go For INK

These are great folks and they do great work. The whole place is setup to make you comfortable. If it's your first TAT and you're a little nervous ask to sit in the Garden so you can unwind a bit

wow always smell the people who are going to work on you!!!!

So, if you want someone who is drunk to give you a tattoo go to high caliber. If you want a really jacked nipples or an eye brow go see Mickey that fun loving guy.(not even close to nice) But he dose not care if your under age, I don't think they ever have asked for an ID
I will never go to this place ever again!

Personable

I was looking for a while for someone to do a very personal tattoo for me but never came across the right type of atmosphere that made me feel comfortable. I had been to High Calibur before and and they were always very considerate and polite from the minute I walked in the door and their designs are amazing. I had one of their artists come up with one of the most beautiful designs I had ever seen and it had everything in it that I was asking for, I couldn't have been happier.

Love love love this place! PLEASE READ!

You know I visited Indianapolis a while back to visit family, and decided it was time for myself an other family members to get tattoos that we had be planning for quite some time. Our tattoos were for a family member who passed away, we had talked about ideas but really had nothing set in stone. For some of us tattoos were no big deal, but then for others it was our first rodeo. We had checked out other places, priced some work and talked to different artists to feel out the places, but we just didn't get a great welcome let alone a good vibe. When we got to High Caliber it was a different feel. It looks like a big house but when you walk in its like a twist between a history museum, library and Zen garden. All the artists were friendly and spoke to us as they passed. There were other clients laughing and having enjoyable experiences and showing off their art. We didn't wait to long before our artists started to put together some ideas. While we were waiting Bobby the owner and artist, showed us around and I think even if you visited High Caliber everyday you would always notice something new and interesting to see. We proceeded to the back and never would you think all of these heavily tattooed artists would have a beautiful secret garden full of tree and flowers, fountains and statues, birds,even paths to walk. I guess you should never judge a book by it's cover. We had 4 artists and even one of the family decided to get a piercing. Micky was very professional, clean and had a huge selection of jewelry to choose from. The piercing room was full of amazing horror movie collectibles new and old, a little scary, but he made us comfortable regardless. The High Caliber artists came up with multiple custom pieces to accommodate all six of our styles and tastes, we knew we wouldn't see our tattoos walking around on other people, they were just for us! They are open from 12 to 9 pm but they stayed late to get us all done because some of us were heading home the following day. We got to also see many awards (and by the way every artist there has won more than one!) and their multiple appearances in reparable tattoo magazines in the past few months. They even have a woman tattoo artist, Trinity, that made a couple of us ladies feel more comfortable. They have lots of music to choose from so we all felt at home. Their apprentice cleaned after every tattoo, and helped the process move right along, he even ran to the local eateries to get us food and drinks. All of our needles and equipment was shown to us before hand to reassure their cleanliness for our health. When we were finished we were given very specific aftercare instructions which is better for us who have never taken care of a tattoo, it's not as simple as you think. Overall High Caliber took the prize. I read some of the reviews from years ago that were posted and I can assure you this is not the same crew or owner, only the same building. This made me more compelled to write on this tattoo shop. I would recommend them for anyone, even people where I'm from. I tell them the distance is worth the trip. Thanks High Caliber Tattoo!

Who are these people

Last I heard it was atomic tattoo, and they had a beauty salon/ tattoo shop, (which i thought that it was illegal to have the harsh chemicals of a beauty salon with the tattoo shop) and it wasnt clean, and the body piercer there was not friendly. My cousin who was 17 got her nipples pierced there without parental consent, I do not know if her parents are going to do anything, but last i heard you couldnt pierce anybodys genitals or nipples if they are under 18, even with parental consent, that it falls under statutory rpe, if anybody knows any more about this law, please email me, but that is what the piercer at metamorphisis said.

I dunno.

anyway, i cant reccomend them for that reason. Pricey too, they wanted to charge my boyfriend $600 for six letters on his stomach.

Touch up and coverup at Atomic Tattoos

Eric at Atomic Tattoo touched up a cover up of a previous tattoo of mine. He did a really nice job improving the design and adding color, and the artists were very polite and professional. I would definitely recommend this shop for any kind of tattoo work.

Totally Professional

I rate this business an overall 10! I have been to several tattoo and body piercing locations in the city and otherwise and this is the best. If you are ""skittish"" or ""unsure"" this is the place to go. They are great.
