My husband and I found the Tattooed Pirate through a firefighter friend of ours. Let me just say if you want to get inked, and you want it to look damn good, go to the Tattooed Pirate. Very reasonably priced, and a very fast artist. Tattooed Pirate is the place to go for ink in Hampton Roads!
This place does not even deserve one star after the service my sister and I have received. We went in for matching tattoos on Aug 30 and thought everything was cool, until we got home and had a chance to fully look at the tattoos. Joe was our artist, and not only did he do crummy line work, he misspelled one of our words in the tat. We paid $200 each for a tattoo that is completely screwed up. My sister contacted them on their Facebook page about the errors and asked for at LEAST a partial refund, and we have had no contact back. Outside of true tattoo issue itself, the manager, Hero, was a complete snob about even doing our tattoo because it was too basic for his apparent talent. As I later watched him work on another customer, he kept stopping his work every five minutes to go change the music that was playing in the shop. I have over 20 tattoos and I've never been lwft with such a bad taste in my mouth. I would never recommend someone to go to this place.
Loved it! Loved my artist Mandy. She totally captured the idea I wanted for my tattoo even better than in my head, made me comfortable (like, I was relieved to not have listen to crappy heavy metal music while a smelly, pervy guy did my tattoo like most tattoo artists i been to) and she was so nice! She made me laugh, her working area was set up for privacy, and was so clean and tidy! Listened to great music, carried on fun conversation, and before i knew it, my new favorite tattoo was all done. Its so pretty and colorful! Im definitely going to her from now on! If you want a tattoo artist that treats you with respect, does amazing work, and makes you feel comfortable definitely go to this girl!
Took my wife in for a ring tattoo and Joe said he could do it and it would be $80. My wife paid and the we sat down. After the tattoo was drawn out my wife was not happy with the size and requested something bigger. We were told it couldn't be done. So we went back up to the front desk to get our money back and was told there was no refunds. They wanted to keep the money and not did not even do anything but draw on a piece of paper. When asked to speak to the manager was given the run around. Finally joe came from the back and said to charge $10 for a set up fee. So we paid $10 for a 1/2 inch circle piece of paper and walked out empty handed. Take your money and business else where. This is poor customer service.
