Myself and a co worker decided to visit this location for a piercings nothing crazy very simple. We were greeted by an employee who was very well mannered he advised us he'll get another employee that will assist us and would be with us shortly. Then what we thought would be a nice experience turned into being hosted by the rudest person we have ever been in contact with. Ray Jackson was not comforting to my friend that was getting her piercing for the first time ,even through his attitude and although he did not deserve it we decided to tip him regardless of his attitude we tipped the service that was render , But I hope everyone that reads this please take my advise DO NOT visit Cast Iron nor any other shop that may employ Ray Jackson until he learns that despite his employment environment he is still in customer service and should conduct himself as such. Lose the attitude or find another profession .DO NOT VISIT CAST IRON TATTOO. I had to give 1 star unfortunately.
I got my first tattoo there and now a nose ring. My tattoo artist is still there!!! over 5 years. I like the people and my nose ring was a little pressure and he knows what he is doing!! have already sent them customers!!!!
What an amazing group of people!! I am so satisfied with how my tattoo came out! It was done professionally but they made me feel comfortable and relaxed. Russell was my artist and I can't thank him enough for everything he did. He did beautifully and exceeded my expectations. He gave great ideas when I asked for them and made sure that I was completely happy with what I was getting. He took the time to really make sure to the finest detail that everything was in place. I can see why I had to wait half a year to get an appointment in! The team themselves were great as well!! Todd was great at welcoming us and told us to even stop by to say Hi! Worth the three hour drive from my home to get there.
I wish I had read the reviews before going into this shop...I thought I would get the best work possible at this shop, wrong ! They told me it was my lucky day to get Ron as my tattoo artist, that was a joke, the guy at the counter stated they could not do the tattoo I wanted (that is simple and about the size of a dime) on my arm for less than $150.00,,,then Ron appears and stated he would need $200.00 to do the tattoo. I thought it would be perfect so I paid the $200.00 up front (required) This is a terrible tattoo ! I had a picture of exactly what I wanted and what I got looks nothing like the pic. Sad but true. It was suppose to be black with gray shading, I got dark blue with splotchy shading ! The lines are crooked, it was a simple tattoo that I wanted. I called to set an appointment for a touch up and he has no time available unless I can come in first thing. I guess so the other potential victims would not see the kind of work to expect, they needed to get me in as soon as they open. It took him 20 minutes to do the tattoo, how long could touch up take ?? This company is use to ripping off the tourists !!! Well guess what, I'm a local. Everyone that sees the tattoo tells me I got ripped off. I plan to go to Lizard lounge in Kissimmee , to get this fixed, their prices are very reasonable and they do quality work and THEY STAND BEHIND IT ! Steer clear of this rip off business.
Absolutely the BEST tattoo shop / parlor in Orlando or even the state of Florida. Hart & Huntington Orlando is by far the most professional group of individuals that I've ever dealt with in all my years of getting tattoos. These are not your typical cookie cutter artists, the guys working there are true artists that create custom pieces of art for your skin that will last your entire life. I had two complete hack jobs on my leg that had to be fixed. Several shops told me that there was no way whatsoever that a coverup could be done. When I asked the guys at H&H they were ready for the challenge. Since then I've had another piece on my arm done (black & grey - amazing) and my wife had a script tattoo on her wrist that was done poorly…Jeremie Lafrance was able to retrace, put a drop shadow on it and literally make it 100% better than it ever was. I'm going back for another custom tattoo in late April and can't wait!There are a lot of shops in Orlando do choose from, but there is only one that I trust and that's Hart & Huntington. They are located in Universal City Walk (just FYI) and be sure to check out Jeremie Lafrance…..one of the best tattoo artists in the world. Absolutely amazing work! You'll even find Spike TV's Ink Master Finalist Jime Litwalk there and this guy is a legend in his own right. Totally top shelf operation. Don't make a mistake and go bargain shopping for a tattoo - H & H has good pricing, but the last thing you want to do is go looking for the lowest prices in town….tattoos are FOREVER!
