I went to Southside for the first time 2 weeks ago, just walked in on my lunch break, already knew what I wanted they copied it and enlarged it and with in 20 minutes Bobby was putting it on me, it is healing well, have a few spots that will have to be gone over again, but he said just come back when it was healed and he'd go over it again. I had a good experience here, they were very welcoming and nice and the price was reasonable. I would go back again, I have seen other work that Bobby has done like some Kiss stuff it was really good too! Thanks Bobby! Oh, and my daughter loved her stick person :)

I guess I am confused, I have been in this shop multiple times and have never been treated badly. As a matter of fact I have been worked on by Phil and Steve. My first experience was when my mother whom is 72 years old got her first tattoo. There were clients in there using pretty offensive language and Phil asked them to please be respectful and he treated my mother with the utmost respect. And all he did was speak kindly of his wife and child. I was actually there once and a person came in needing a touch up but i seen the tattoo and it was amazing, Phil still took the time no questions asked to do a touch up that did not need touched up. He actually lost a new client over it because he took 20 minutes to try and please an existing customer. I guess in life not everybody can be made to be happy. I have been to other shops and this shop is this place for me. Do not be scared of these other comments this shop is very professional. I actually have a half a mind to think that these comments are the same person with a grudge of some sort. There was one time Phil stopped on my tattoo and asked if I would mind coming back in an hour, he had to take a test at school, well he was back in 45 minutes and finished as promised. So in short I find it very hard to believe that that anybody would have anything but good things to say about this shop! I would highly recommend this shop to anybody! AAAA++++

To be honest I loved and massivly promoted this place until I came in dropped 600 in CASH for 2 small tattoos the ""Artist"" Tyler told me if anyone asked I only paid 250 than turned around came back the next day same thing dropped 450 on 2 more pieces he again told me to say I only paid 200 for them if phil the ""owner"" asked ...I paid of course and in the middle of the session he all the sudden has some place to be I call to finished it 3 weeks later (while sitting outside) he says they are EXTREMELY busy he's sitting outside smoking and talking on his phone and nobody is in the shop.He also was attempting to give pills out of the shop...not a good work ethic if you wish to keep big spenders coming back .oh and it's not good to call your clients when you have UNFINISHED WORK already refuse to finish that and ask to start ANOTHER piece just for the up front cash.

Went to get a tattoo there because it was close to the house. Phil said he didn't have time, if we paid up front he would schedule and appt to get it done. The first appt he didn't have 'time'. The second appt he had to stop in the middle of because again, he didn't have 'time' and had to be someplace else. Now, he won't return phone calls, when we stop by, he conveniently isn't 'there' or he was 'busy' with promises of getting back to us. Been weeks. He took our money and now can't get him to finish. Poor business practices. Other reviews show they have done the same to other customers. Extremely dissatisfied.
As a consumer I have to say that these guys provide the best work out there hands down, no exception. I have been to many tattoo shops, know several tattoo artists and seen many pieces done never even been tempted to go to another shop. I have over 30 pieces and all have been customized just for me so that I dont have matching tattoos with 5000 other people. Each person is entitled to their viewpoint on how a shop treats them, to their workmanship and everything in between. I can tell you from personal exp with this shop that I have never not had a question answered truthfully, honestly or been told they couldn't help me with whatever I needed. Couldnt be happier will all my tattoos including a back piece both feet, shoulders and in the process of a full left sleeve. I recommend these guys to everyone from strangers to my own riends and family. I get comments all the time and random ppl stop me to take a closer look at my tattoos and ask where I got them. These guys treat everyone equal from rockstars to soccer moms trust me I've seen both and everything in between there on my many many visits. Would put any of work up agianist someone else's any day of the week.

I decided to write a review because I have gotten so many comments from complete strangers, to fellow tattoo artists, and everyone in between about the work i've had done here. I have over 30 pieces and I'm in the process of finishing a much loved sleeve, I have had many offers from other shops to work on pieces for me, went along with other friends as they have gotten work done, no place compares to were I go or the workmanship I get. I have never been treated improperly, badly, or gotten ripped off even when I went in for my very first little blue butterfly, I didn't get laughed out the door. The staff was very forthcoming answered all my questions honestly and tried to put me at ease from the very first visit. Do appts occasionaly have to get bumped back or rescheduled sure but I dont think there is a shop out there that doesnt have the same problem on occasion. (have a friend who paid another shop $1,000 for a piece got bumped 4 times, it happens). I have a back piece of butterfly wings that where done to my specific request from color to shape drawn with a sharpie right on to my back and are a complete one of a kind piece no one else will ever have, if you want $20 flash go elsewhere if you want quality and your own distinct artwork see for yourself, shop around and compare I did and found the best place for me hands down.
After leaving Atomic Lotus I went to Southside Tattoos with my husband where I was treated very good.. Between my husband and I we spent several hours and several hundred dollars here getting tattooed and it was worth every cent...If u want a clean and friendly place to get tattooed go here.....

This place is a joke. I paid for a tattoo in full and months later it is still not finished. Every time I call the shop, the ""artist"" that did my tattoo is unavailable. No one knows when he will be in. I went as far as to just drop in and no one even acknowledged I was there. The guy who STARTED my tattoo was working on 2 new tats. I paid a lot of money for a tattoo that is incomplete. How dare he be taking new clients when he has been paid in full for mine and has not completed it yet. The ""shop manager"" aka the brother of my artist was very rude saying that they are very busy and I would be called back. That was weeks ago. Still nothing. Trying to be patient, I do want him to finish and do a good job, but am about to take them to small claims for a refund. I would not recommend going here for anything. They are very childish and talk badly about their other clients. Save your time and go somewhere else.
