I went in to get my nose peirced, and some jewelry on my ear changed. My peircer was very informative about the whole procedure. She answered all of my questions. She was very nice, and she did the peircing quick. The place looks very profesional and clean. I would go there again, and I would recommend anyone else to go as well.
I went to Alter Ego to get my nose pierced. I walked in very nervous, but they were all friendly and very helpful. I had my nose pierced by Braxton, who was very nice and got me in and out in maybe 10 minutes or so. Everything was done nicely, sterile and I was given clear and concise instructions on how to care for the piercing. If I ever decide to get anything else done, I will definitely come back.
Got my nose priced. They used a bone/stud when they first priced it. Took great care of it.. Even slept with two band-Aids on it.nose ring came out in my sleep. Band-aids still on. Got my nose re-pierced again they used a bone/stud Again. The stud was obviously not long enough. This time it grew up on the inside and started to close around the stud. Great Customer service However would definitely do research on types of nose rings
Friendly, courteous, customer-focused, reasonable pricing, professional staff, piercer Dawn, ROCKS!!!!!
Now under new ownership with an amazing new staff. I wouldn't go anywhere else in Knoxville to get a tattoo. The name is Purple Heart Tattoo and the phone number is 865-281-3934
I've been in a couple of times and I had mixed feelings about this shop. Most of the employees are professional in presentation and seem to know what they're doing. Nevertheless I had a few negative reactions to the attitude of the owner who seemed very concerned with keeping up a certain persona. I heard him bash other artists and shops when there were complaints of tattoos or piercings that were done elsewhere.They honestly didn't seem very welcoming to our business. Another time I walked into a completely dead shop with one employee who greeted me from the coach, while another employee was eating. I felt like I was taking up their time rather than paying them for a service. Not to mention the worn out counters and out dated magazines and haphazard jewelry display. I know of other shops who could easily fulfill my tattoo and piercing needs in a much more welcoming and professional manner. Don't waste your time here.
My wife and I stopped by the shop on Saturday to discuss a half sleeve for myself. We were so impressed by the artists knowledge and the conditions of the shop. All of the staff present on Saturday were amazing. Friendly, knowledgeable and more than willing to help. My wife ended up getting pierced while we were there. The young lady who did the piercing was great, and helped to keep my wife at ease while they did the pierce. On Sunday we went back to the shop and met with Isaac about doing a couple new tattoos for us. He was awesome. I have to say his fine line work is just amazing. Both tattoos we got that day look great! Seriously check him out, his work is impressive. We will be seeing the folks at Alter Ego again soon I'm sure!
Great artists & nice, clean environment.
Christopher is one of the best artists I have seen. They are very professional and did an amazing job on my tattoo.
I would defintley recommend Alter Ego. I got my nose pierced here 3 weeks ago with absolutley no problems. The employees treated me well and made me laugh. I was also a little nervous, seeing as this was my first piercing and my piercer reasssured me it was nothing, he finished with good time too! I am defintley going back for my next piercing!
