I have been going to Wicked Ink since 2003 and I LOVE THEM! I've had several piercings and 7 tattoos. All of my work has been done by Jason or Marilyn and both are AMAZING! I just had my first permanent makeup procedure done 2 weeks ago and it's BEAUTIFUL! Their place is ALWAYS super clean and EVERYONE is extremely helpful and friendly. I walked into several places ready and willing for ink but was always turned off by the cleanliness (or lack thereof) and personalities. Then I found Wicked Ink. I recommend then to everyone thinking about having ANYTHING done. They welcome children into their establishment and even talk to them as well! I have taken my kids many times and been complimented on their behavior. I will NEVER go anywhere other than Wicked Ink to have holes put in my body or for ink. Keep doing an AWESOME job guys and I will be seeing you again...... SOON! As for the negative comments, check their Health Dept scores. They speak for themselves! This is the BEST, CLEANEST AND FRIENDLIEST place to go in Knoxville or anywhere nearby!
I had my piercing done at another place and now I wish I had waited and came here. The other place got my piercing all wrong. The bar was too short. I decided I would go to Wicked Ink to see if they had a longer bar and much to my surprise they were so helpful and took great care of me. Jason even put the bar in my tongue for me. He was wonderful. I gladly recommend anyone thinking of getting a tattoo or a piercing to go see Jason, Robin or Marilan. They are all wonderful. I was a little nervous about going in there after the last place messed up my tongue piercing but when I got in there and started talking to them all my fears went away. I know if I ever get another piercing or anything I will be going to them. The facility was so clean, organized. It was unbelievable. Take it from me or read the other reviews this place is the best
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!
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.
Heyy, This place is awesome, I got my belly button done here, The people are really nice and friendly, The place is super clean, And Jason made me feel alot better about having it done cuz i was really nerves but in the end it didnt hurt at all, I would go back here in a heart beat and I will to get more rings when i can change it out! Its a great place, you should really go!!!!!
These guys really know what they're doing! Putting permanent art on someone is no small deal and they are very professional about the whole process! I have gotten 2 pieces done from them (one by Ben and one by Al) and a girlfriend of mine had permanent eyeliner done that looks great! I didn't even know they offered that until she had it done... can't wait to get it myself!
The staff is amazing the girl's are very sweet and helpful. Jason is amazing. My mom and me went to get piercing (belly & nose) my mom got it done at 2 other places and said it hurt very bad, but when Jason did it, it was amazing. Me I've never got any piercing's but he did a very good job and he knows exactly what he is doing. I highly recommend wicked ink.
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!
