Unfortunately, I cannot remember the man's name that did my belly button piercing. However, he did an incredible job! Yes it definitely hurt, but it depends on how thick your skin is on your belly. He prepared me for the needle stick and after it was over, it was DEFINITELY worth it. I'd refer them to anyone wanting a piercing. The tattooing I am unsure of ONLY because I haven't gotten one yet. I plan to get one very soon, so I'll be glad to inform the readers of my experience. DO NOT go to anyone that doesn't work in a shop and/or without a license, that is the WORST thing to do. My sister illegally got her first tat done by some boy we went to school with and it was sloppy, let alone the worst work I've ever seen. Only person I can recommend is her certain tattooer, Biz. Other than that, stick to shop-workers. Piercings outside of a shop can get infected quickly and end up crooked and/or pierced in the wrong area. BE SMART AND GO TO A SHOP! Good luck to all!
So i was refered to Biggins from a female that i work with. I told her that I wanted some letters on me but I wanted them to be original, not like others i have seen before... He did some work on her that was totally cold!!!!! I liked the detail that he did, it looked really professionsal. I went in there yesterday and told him what i wanted, not only was he a cool guy.... The price was right, the letters where exactly how i wanted them and the shading was sick..... When it was done i couldnt wait to go show it off.... I am an account coordinator and I have been sending pics of my new tatt all day. I have gotten nothing but postive feedback which i knew i would receive. So screw all of you that think Biggins is not great at what he does... If your looking for something original check Biggins out, enough said..... Thanks again Biggins...... I'll be back like an electic bill... LOL, LOL.....
I've been going to Big Time since my first tattoo a few years back and haven't stopped since. My brother, father, best friend, fiance and myself have all had work done at this wonderful gallery. The knowledge, professionalism, and the skill of each of the artists, especially the shops owner Bill, is unmatched anywhere else. JC, another very talented artist at the shop. So when my fiance started talking about getting a new piercing we headed up to the shop and talked to their expert piercer Froggy. He isn't only the best local piercer, but the best in the state. Back when he lived in Arizona he underwent an extensive apprenticeship with one of best piercers in the country. I highly recommend Big Time Tattoos and Piercings to everybody, ranging from someones first piece or a tattoo veteran, who wants an amazing tattoo
I have had 2 of my 5 tats done at the W. Washington Street one. The first one I had done was amazing and I really loved the artist. The second time I went, the previous artist I had moved to the Avon one. I was with a group of people and we decided to stay at the washington street one. The artist I had was awful. He was rude and very antisocial. When he did mine, he pushed way to hard on my chest, was digging the needle in, and was just very rude. I had told him what I wanted done and he had to ask me when he was in the middle of doing my tattoo if he could add color, which I had already said I wanted before he started. I will not be going back to any Artistic Skin Design because of this.
I have received 1 large pit bull portrait and my wifes name and my wife has got one on her wrist and my step daughter has got one on her belly and one across her foot and they have all been done by FREAK from the west washington st shop i have a few more in mind and im turning anybody who ask to go to him, he has some fine work and i plan on giving him all my work and anybody else i can turn on to him,the store is clean and all the work i have seen in there and come out of there has been top notch ,that is a great group of guys over there and i would recommend them to everyone.
everyone is allowed their opinion but when you do it and don't rightly know what your talking about then the review is bunk. Steel Rod only uses professional Machines not a gun. so please do not pay attention to this review it was obviously written by someone who is not well versed in the tattoo lifestyle. If your looking for some serious and awsome work check out the guys at Steel Rod I would stand behind them no matter what.
i just got a tattoo cover up from them yesterday yea i cried like a baby but the guy that was doing mine was very understanding he even said it would hurt he did an amazing jobs and i am already sending people his way shawn is really good and my mother my aunt and my cousin all have gone and we all love it:) they now have a life time customer :) much love to the shop w.washington & s.lynhurst
I took a design into the shop that I liked and ask JC to do something similar with his own personal touches. The work that he did surpassed the example I took to him by Miles. Will definitely be returning and referring more people to them. It was a great atmosphere , all the guys were real friendly and joking around made us feel like friends
I got my second tattoo at Midwest Tattoo Co and it was a wonderful experience. They are experienced, talented, clean through and through, friendly and really professional. I went with a friend who also got a tattoo that night but it was his 15th tattoo and his favorite spot is Midwest. I am so glad I went there. A lasting memory!
I have 8 tattoos,2 were done by artistic skin design,and one at a tat party,the 5 remaining ones were done by Jason,i have all my kids and my baby boo, and mom and pops,all done by Jason,everyone who sees them loves his work, this is the best place to get tattooed,i will be going back pretty soon! Steel Rod is the place!
