HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE!!! Me and my friend went there to get our nostrils done. The guy gave us a deal-$20 each. The studs are TINY. After three days, I put on a tshirt and it flew off! Her's was in the wrong spot and also fell out. We had to go to a different place to get them redone! So another $35. The studs are supposed to be way longer and CURVED so they don't fall out!!!!!! Severe disappointment, and we want our $20 back. Reviews also to follow on Yelp, google and anything else I can think of. He also never even gave us aftercare. Seriously?!Oh, and I have never worked for them, so I am NOT a disgruntled employee. There are conversation i had with John over facebook that I saved, along with the paperwork we had to sign.Also, no aftercare? Really? The place we went to have HAVE IT REDONE shuddered when we said where we got it done. So much for 18 years experience. John thinks he is God, and blames his mistakes on the customer. RUN FAST RUN FAR
My friend and I decided to get our nostrils pierced - our first piercings ever. We researched quite a few shops in the area and based on reviews and John's "knowledge", we picked 727 Tattoos. What a horrible idea that was! My piercing was done WAY higher than it should've been, and was done crooked, so the jewel did not lie flat on my nose (we trusted John on placement as he claimed he has 18+ years of experience and didn't want it to be done wrong - HA!) Come to find out, we were both pierced with nose bones, which if you didn't know, YOU SHOULD NEVER PUT IN A FRESH PIERCING BECAUSE IT CAN TEAR IT OPEN. John went over NO aftercare with us inside the shop (I had to message him on FB, which just got me a response of "antibacterial soap like Dial 3-4 times a day") Within two days my nose was very red and swollen because the ball of the nose bone was actually embedded in the piercing on the inside of my nostril because it was so small - which could lead to infection / my nostril ripping. John claimed he was out of town and could switch jewelry when he was back. I ran for the hills - straight to a reputable shop that had to RE-PIERCE my nose and switch my jewelry (the artist cringed when I told him the shop that originally did it.) My friend's nose bone fell out in 3 days and she too had to pay to get it redone with the proper jewelry. When we contacted him via Facebook to resolve the issue and asked for our money back, we were BLOCKED!! DO NOT GO HERE!
This place and the Countryside location is a complete joke. After being ripped off by Classic Tattoos in St. Petersburg, who told me that I had to put a $50 deposit that would go towards the tattoo but when I hated the drawing...because it sucked they kept my money for the "time" he took to draw the picture (which by the looks of it took him all but 10 minutes). Steve was his name and I think my 14 year old son could have drawn a better flower. Didn't matter when I spoke the Clint the "Shop manger" which was just someone that Steve handed the phone to. Whatever you live and learn. So I took my pictures to Josh at Atomic in Westfield mall on a Thursday evening and he told me he would email me something by Saturday. I informed him that I was trying to get the tattoo before my wedding in 3 weeks since it's a cover up...a small cover up. I never heard a word from him so I called Saturday evening and he said he was busy and passed me off to Corey who wanted pictures of my current tattoo so I sent them to him and he said he would have something drawn up that night and would tattoo me Sunday. Again Sunday comes around and I don't hear a thing. They just claim that they are too busy and can't help me. Well thank you A**holes for wasting 4 days of time. You could have just told me that in the beginning and I could have gone somewhere else. So I contact the Atomic on Ulmerton and although Jake was apologetic that he was unable to tattoo me it was only after he too told me to send over the pictures (which I did at 1:30 that afternoon) and he would tattoo me that evening. Again, I explained that time was not on my side and he said he could tattoo me that evening and to my astonishment I didn't hear a word. I called back once and left a message for him to call me which he never did and then I called back again around 8:00 and got the same thing that he had just been busy all day. What the hell? If you’re that busy then just tell the customer you don't have time to do what they need. It's honestly so frustrating. I started this process three weeks ago. Now I won't have time to get my tattoo and have it heal before the wedding.
Great place to get tattoos! Clean, friendly, and awesome atmosphere! Definitely will recommend to others!
I went to 727 tattoo and John did my tattoo,he was very professional,showed me everything they used on me that had expiration dates, something atomic never does, I got an awesome tattoo at a great price, everything was very clean and sanitary. I won't lie I did some shopping around for the tattoo I wanted and atomic wanted $400 and went to 727 and paid much less for better service and got treated very well at 727, atomic is a ripoff and does crap work, I have scar tattoos from atomic going too deep. I will definitely be giving my business to 727 for now on. Thanks for the great tattoo john, I will be back soon for some more and fixing of other tattoo's!!
I went to price a tattoo I wanted and they tried ripping me off after being a repeat customer. They kid basically told me to go elsewhere, so I sure did. He told me there are many tattoo places on Ulmerton rd, they had no customers and basically laughed in my face. The guys mouth wasn't very nice at all. They are very unsanitary. I had a tattoo done there they didn't wanna fix, one guy was either on drugs or drunk, if not both. I also had another tattoo done there a while back that they scarred me and refused to fix it. It's ok though cause they $400 price you gave me for the tattoo I wanted I did what you said and went somewhere else where it was much cheaper, very sanitary and better customer service. And without a shifty attitude, so I wanna thank you actually for telling me to go elsewhere cause now I have a beautiful tattoo and a better place to go to!! I and others I know will never be back again.
I've been a loyal customer of 727 Tattoo since 2008 and I get nothing but compliments and positive feedback from people, tattooed & otherwise, about the quality of the work and vivid colors of even my older work. Having read the negative review below, I have to assume it is a competitor or an angry ex-employee. 727 has always used disposable equipment for maximum cleanliness and as far as I know adheres to all state & local health and safety regulations,
I suspect, much like many of the rest of the networking site negative reviews the first review was by the shop down the road. We at 727 are friends with the surrounding shops and work with our community. We have an open door policy and invite anyone with a concern or bad experience to contact either of our owners to make it right. We have had good standings in Largo for 6 years and pride ourselves on the friendship of our customers. Thanks for the legitimate support as we continue to serve you.
This shop is professional and clean. I have a design in the works for a large tattoo and have had piercings done here...wont go anywhere else!!
