I have gotten 3 tat's at Flat Line Ink.. all done by Matt.. he's a brilliant artist.. laid back.. wicked funny.. laughs all the time and makes you feel comfortable.. While I haven't had any work done by Alex I simply adore him and enjoy the interactions between he and Matt.. the shop is clean and they're always willing to meet with you and answer questions.. it's by far one of my fave places to visit.. I haven't been to any other shops in the area and I don't know why I would to be honest.. I'd highly recommend Flat Line Ink..
probably the best shop around. i see the bad revue and also know that its from a former "artist" that worked there, who was fired for reasons i wont put on here. daryl is a great artist as well as his employees, yoou will get great work and service at compt. prices. you can get nice work or go to another shop in town with a bunch of druggie scratchers, your choice.
Getting new ink or more ink is very very exciting. I suggest Flatline for many reasons. Alex and Matt are very good and talented artist. Matt has done 2 out of four tattoos and they are the better ones. I probably won't be going anywhere else. They also tell you straight up what they think is up and they will do what you want. :) great experience.
The place was nice and clean and everyone their was really cool. My sister got two piercings and I got my half sleeve started. The tattoo artist did an awesome job on my arm. My sister was really happy with her piercings and they were real professional. We will be back for much more work from them.
Honestly, words cannot begin to describe the wide variety of talent these men and apprentice have. With fantastic vibes, beautiful work, along with professionalism and humbleness It truly is hard to go anywhere else. You couldnt make any better of a choice for your need of ink:)
I went in for a tattoo pretty late one evening. Alex drew exactly what I wanted with his own artistic spin on it. Once it was done my husband was so happy he asked Alex to do one for him too, and he did! The prices are fair and the atmosphere is absolutely inviting!
I love FLI!!!! I have gotten 4 of my most recent tattoos there. Ever since I found them I haven't gone anywhere else and I recommend all my friends get there tattoos done by either Matt or Alex. These guys are the best in town for sure!!!!!!!!
Matt has given me 2 full sleeves, and has put a name on my chest. Matt and Alex put the best art in Joplin in you for FAIR pricing and provide a great atmosphere for you during your session. This is THE place for tattoos in the Joplin area.
FlatLine Ink is by far the best shop in joplin! Alex May has done almost all of my tattoo's and Matt did my very first one they are all amazing artists and there really fun to be around! I would suggest FLI to anyone anyday of the week.
Got my first tattoo today -- Matt did it for me. He put me at ease, didn't hurt me, and kept me relaxed and laughing during the process. Nice atmosphere, clean shop, friendly guys -- GREAT artwork -- I will be back!!
