On a weekend trip in OKC, my hubby and I decided to get matching tatts. I called and spoke to a gentleman named Ethan, who had great customer service. It was Friday after 9 p.m., he advised us to come on in. Ethan was also my artist, he was people oriented, very friendly demeanor and his station was neat and sanitary. I got a wrist tatt, and it turned out awesome. Go see Ethan, he is great!😁
OB has done 2 tattoos for me and Clayton pierced my nose. This shop is clean as a whistle - the guys are all nice and easy going - they're professional and fun. Way better than experiences I've had in some other locations. I'd definitely allow them to pierce or tattoo me again!
Literally OB is the mf man!! he did the damn thing on my ribs and even fixed the tattoo he was working around without me asking him to fix it. i didnt even know it needed to be fixed until he worked his magic! thank God for OB!!!! plus the experience was perfect! he made me feel like ive known him my whole life!
Hypocrite! Doesn't like "gays" Only gave one star because that's the lowest choice. Went to get a tattoo and spoke with "Big Daddy" aka Moe. Asked for our deposit $ back after he started talking about "gays" not being good enough to serve him food at a restaurant . Said he wasn't judgemental, but would ask for another server in a restaurant if the original server was "gay". After a brief debate and him stating that he didn't like the smell of their breath, we asked for our deposit $ back and left. Won't be getting anything from them, EVER!
I just got my piercing done by Zoo and it was the best experience I have ever had! He is so professional and knows what he is doing! He is great at what he does and I would recommend him to anyone! I was very nervous but he made me feel better about everything! Thanks Zoo!!
Jake did my first tattoo & my moms first big tattoo & the experience was amazing! We felt so comfortable and welcomed. He knew exactly what we wanted & we couldn't be happier with our new tattoos!! I will definitely be back to Big Daddy's for any other tattoos or peircings. Highly recommend.
We are 3 Frenchy girl wanted an unforgatable memorie of their united states journey. They found "Big Daddy's"on their way. All people working in this tattoo shop were really nice and really, really good artists. They stayed open for us and were very patient to unterstand us (we speak really bad english). They made a fabulous work for a very good price.
Thanks to Moe, Jake and OB... you are great guys. Thanks to Shy, you are a wonderfull personn.
I got my septum done here by Clay. He was so funny and nice and he made me very comfortable with getting a piercing. I'm usually shaky and really nervous but I absolutely loved going here. It was a wonderful experience and I will be definitely going there to get more piercings done. He's an amazing guy and I highly recommend going here from all other places.
I chose to get my tattoo here based on reviews I had read online. I was a walk in and the artist that was helping me was Big Daddy Moe. He pretty much judged me based on what I was wearing (pink shirt) and said I looked like a "nice girl" and tried to talk me out of getting a tattoo. I informed him that I have another tattoo and I have given thought to this tattoo for the last year. I should have just walked away then and gone somewhere else... This was the first sign/red flag and I ignored it. I did not know I needed to dress in grunge to be taken seriously.
Anyways, he did the tattoo for me but once it was finished and I had gone home I could tell there was spots that he missed..... I could see skin through the ink & coloring outside of the border. Once the tattoo healed I could see the border very clearly in spots and see that the letters were not filled in that great. The entire tattoo looks like it was done by someone with a shaky inexperienced hand. Nothing I could do at this point except let it heal. I knew I needed to wait for the tattoo to heal before I went and got a a touch up so I waited 30 days to contact him for an appointment. I wanted to be fair to him and give him the opportunity to touch up his own work, despite it being shaky, and he said he would get back to me with a time I could come in once he looked at his schedule. After I didn't hear anything for a few days I called the shop directly (I spoke to him) and scheduled a time to come in. I arrived to my appointment 20 minutes early and he said he was just finishing up another tattoo and it would only be a few minutes later. 1 hour after the appointment time he was still tattooing. In fact, at this time he and the client took a 15 minute smoke break and then went back to finishing the tattoo! I don't know if Moe was smoking or not but he was out back and the client was out front smoking. I could not even believe it!! During their break he did come out to look at my tattoo and I showed him the BLOB of ink on the cross and he told me that was a "flare" to give it personality. Okay.... No. It is a shaky hand BLOB on a basic 2 line, stick cross. The cross looks like a plus sign but with a blob at the bottom. If it was a so called "flare" for personality then how come he didn't mention that at the time? It's a BLOB of ink.
He "talks the talk" about customer service... He acts like they take it very serious but I can assure you I wasn't given quality work or any real customer service. Now, I have to go pay someone else to FIX his work which I will gladly do because I am not wasting my time or future money (more tattoos) on someone with a shaky hand who doesn't want to fix their own work! I'm am just taking this as a giant red flag and walking away. I will let someone else show me their talents instead.
I hate to write this review this way but I wish I had read some reviews with the truth about which artist to avoid before I chose to come here. Now I show off sloppy work! .... Great.
Please Note: This review does not reflect any other artist at this shop as I have no experiences with anyone other than Big Daddy Moe.
By the way, Big Daddy Moe doesn't even own Big Daddy's Tattoo shop.... It's the son who owns it. (Moe told me this while I was getting my tattoo done.) I would have liked to of known that beforehand; I thought he was just that good (& cool) that he had his own shop and called it that. I thought I was getting a tattoo by the best. By going to a shop that's named after someone, that's what you would think....
I got my very first tattoo done today by OB he was extremely professional washing his hands thoroughly and constantly changing his gloves. The ambiance was so welcoming I enjoyed the music and he was so comedic I forgot there was a needle gliding through my body. Oh and what a greater singer OB is :) this place is amazing my permanent tattoo parlor.
My wife and myself went in to the the shop for a tattoo and the artist ob was very friendly and helpful and listen to what we wanted and offered advice and was very good at the art and skills of a tattooist definitely will be back to get awesome art from him again.also my daughter and wife went in to get body piercings from Clayton and he is amazing very helpful friendly and courteous answered every question honestly and made sure everything was perfect.a wonderful and clean shop. Recommending it to all my family and friends. Can't wait to go back again.
