Many of the things i list below were noticed midway through the tattoo, had i noticed prior i would not have stayed.. Perhaps I'm used to overly clean shops in Canada but I was not pleased with the cleanliness at the Tattoo Lounge in Las Vegas off of Charleston.. Staff were eating near the tattoo stations, and gloves were not being changed after artists touched their own faces, clothing, after digging around in drawers or others staffs stations and lighting. The equipment was not wrapped in plastic, some stations chairs did not have "one time use paper" to keep the chairs clean and the patrons clean from the chairs.. I'm not certain if the stations were even wiped up properly. Some of the ink bottles looked clogged with ink and dirt. And the other bottles around the stations looked smudged with ink and dust. The artists in general seemed unfocused and distracted by each other. Among their talk I over heard (the manager?) commenting about someone's stations cleanliness... My appointment i booked online a couple of weeks prior was at 11 am, and didn't even see an artist for a consult until 1230pm. The only thing I really found fantastic about this place was that they offered to pick me up from my hotel for a fee of $20, however payment on that (along with how to pay the artist in the shop) was unclear and confusing. There was a predetermined price for the piece however it was never agreed upon on paper and payment did not go through a til (which I found strange..) The tattoo I received is cute and simple, and I'm generally pleased with the work. I was not given care instructions, luckily i have many more tattoos and am aware of how to care for the tattoo. I think I will stick to my usual shop at home in Canada where their health standards seem to be quite a bit higher.
I did not have the best experience here but I do have to say tha Nilson went above and beyond to make my experience was as good as it could be. My sister and I wanted to get matching tattoos for her birthday. I had been in communication with Nilson for a couple weeks, after searching several months for an awesome black and gray artist. I sent him ideas of what we wanted and set-up and appointment. When we went down to the shop on my sister's birthday, for her first, our matching tattoos, the shop didn't have anything sketched up for us. We were told that the design we had come up with was too detailed for the place we had wanted it. We were highly dissappointed and worked with them to come up with another design. After 2 hours and making a competely different piece than what we had wanted, we were satisfied with the design. Honestly, I would have preferred to get my original piece but by this time, we had to get something. I didn't want to ruin my sister's birthday. The piece is still nice and it is something I will be happy with for the rest of my life, thank goodness, but the only reason I am happy with it, is because my sister and I got our matching tattoos, finally. Nilson did a great job on my sister's tattoo, unfortunately, I was not so lucky. I have very sensitive skin and the other artist that did my piece turned my forearm into hamburger meat. My tattoo healed up horribly and I was so upset that all of the border ink had disappeared and my new piece looked like a black blob on my arm. I talked to Nilson about my tattoo and he gladly had me come in to fix it. He did a great job and I am now very happy with the result. Honestly, I would only recommend Nilson do any work from this shop. He does amazing work and his portraits are out of this world phenomenal.
I have been to this shop more then once and have received 3 tattoos and a nose piercing. The first time I went in to have a cancer ribbon done in honor of my dad who is fighting renal cancer and was greeted by a very courtoues person who promptly took care of me and got in touch with an artist who did the tattoo exactly like I wanted. Since then I have been back to see them on two different occasions. I went on New Years eve with my husband and daughter and all 3 of us received awesome tattoos from there special and I received a nose piercing and none of us had any issues and our artist shop name is ugly. I then went back on valentines day to receive another tattoo and the same artist was there and did that one for me perfectly. I get nothing but compliments on all 3 of them plus my piercing. I have sent many people in to that location and none of them have issues and are very happy with the work they receive. Johnny has tattoo'ed a coworker of mine and she is going back for more work. I intend to have them do more work on me as well. Leyla did my piercing and it was awesome and both my daughters went in to get pierced, one had her tongue done and the other had a tragus done and neither one of them has had any issues and Lonnie is the one who did those. I can not say enough good things about this company and I look forward to more ink work done by Crown Electric Tattoo!!!
I've been tattooed several times at several different places, but my recent trip to Vegas was another opportunity to get a new tattoo in a state I've never place. I happened to end up at Painless Wayne's tattos on one of the days he was running a special. The tattoo I got is positively the best one I've gotten in 20+ years of getting them, and the price I paid made me think they were joking. I've paid more for smaller tattos and the quality is second to none. Everyone was so friendly, the atmosphere was fun and exciting, definitely the best experience I've ever had, and the best quality tattoo by far. Wayne had me enguaged in a great conversation the whole 45 minutes and before I knew it, I had the best tattoo to date. So much so, I recommend him to friends that were going to Las Vegas the next week and I got phoned by them raving about their tattoos. I will definitely be going back to Vegas and one mandatory stop is to get another tattoo at Painless Wayne's Tattos. The quality, atmosphere and experience is the best I've ever had. Top notch experience all the way around. If your ever in Las Vegas, look no further than Wayne's for your tattoo, in my opinion, you can't beat the quality and they will make you feel right at home. 2 thumbs up, 5 star operation.
If you're looking for a fancy sparkly tattoo shop with celebrity draw and in-and-out service, Pricz Tattoo Studio is not for you. However, if you're looking for an amazing piece of art created by talented individuals in a real tattoo studio rather than a pansy parlor, I highly recommend Pricz. The artists at Pricz take pride in their work. You're not just another few bucks in their pockets, you are a walking testament to their artistic talents and they go above and beyond to make sure you are very happy with your ink. They don't rush you in and out. They take their time with every piece they do. You've heard the saying "You get what you pay for."? This is so very true. At some "other" tattoo shops that I won't name, what you are paying for is the lame decor and the rental on their stations, etc. At Pricz, you are paying for your amazing ink, expertly done by very skilled artisans. And did I mention, their prices are even better than reasonable? They have done my ink for half as much as I have been quoted elsewhere. I honestly can't fathom having my work done by anyone other than Trae or Jo... they are not only awesomely cool people to be around, their work is truly amazing!
I got my first ink at Pricz and can't imagine stepping foot into another shop. The owner Trae is a master at his craft. He is obsessed with his art and making it the best it can be as well as the shop. He isn't just a hack with a needle; he has been in the art for years and knows his tools, his technique, and is always looking to go farther and make what he does better. It's not just a job or even a career, it is his life. That shows in the shop as well, all of the artists that I have met there are top notch and high quality. The shop is very clean and well kept, the lighting is excellent and they have top of the line tools. Everyone is friendly without being a suckup. You get respect from the moment you walk in and my only regret is that I don't have more time and cash to spend there. This isn't some reality show shop or a chain store but it deserves all the rewards that those hack shops get. I send everyone I know down there and can't rave about the shop enough. Pricz is dedicated into expressing a combination of your vision and their art into something that you will be proud to show off today, tomorrow and for the rest of your life. Why are you still reading this? Get down there!
I have gone to Diversity two times - the first time was at 2:00 in the morning and the dude cranked out an awesome tattoo with no notice... making it my own exactly what I wanted. The second time I gave Opi like 4 hours notice... the pricing was higher than expected but he did an exceptional job. Once again.. until like 3 in the morning. They pretty much shut down the shop for us on both occasions - I had like 10 people with us and 1/2 of them got tatted on pretty much no notice. So... these guys are awesome as far as I am concerned. When ur hammered... in Vegas... and want a tattoo - these guys just did it and were creative and still concerned that we would be happy. Both of my tats were intricate. The first one had a lighter hand then Opi - but so what.... no scarring.. little scabbing.... no whining... they were top notch. I think the guy that did my first tat was Charlie but I'm not sure - they were both old school style latina girls faces. Anyhow - I had a great experience and still need to go back and finish the one - but I have no complaints.. like I said.. a little pricey.. but come on.. 2 in the morning on the spot no notice and make it right... these guys are awesome!
Just went to get my first tattoo this past weekend. All the staff was very accommodating and even came in on a Sunday when they were closed so that I could get my tattoo in the time frame that I was in town. I dealt with Nilson (the owner and artist), Victor (who helped with my scheduling) and my artist was Genaro. All were very helpful in my experience. I got a script tattoo on my foot and Genaro made it as painless as possible and it looks absolutely amazing! better than I could hope for. He was also just a wonderful person who talked me through everything and made my experience the best it could be. Although the shop is a bit far from the strip if you're staying there, it is WELL WORTH the 15 minute drive, you will get a better price, experience, and tattoo at this establishment compared to anywhere on the strip. I chose this shop based on it's wonderful reviews. I am so glad I went to this shop and would go back time and time again. I LOVE HYPNOTIC INKS TATTOO AND GENARO!
Three Excellent Tattoos From Ron G? I was searching for a true professional artist for 15 years to have an old tattoo reworked and some new work done. I contacted Pussykat and Ron called me. I traveled cross country to meet Ron. He reworked the old tattoo and created an awesome piece to honor my father. His work was awesome and we had an immediate bond. I knew I'd be back. Six months later he created an unbelievable eagle and American Flag that looked real adn made this veteran proud. I get constant compliments about the piece. A year later I was back for another beautiful tiger on my forearm. The color and detail makes it look like it's going to jump off my arm. EVERYONE notices it and compliments me on the work. I'll be going back next summer with my son and getting him a new piece because I want it done right! Ron was awesome and made me feel at home. His work is professional, creative and artistic. I won't go to anyone else!!
