So like most sixteen year olds,. I wanted a piercing. I called every tattoo studio and King City was the most helpful, even while just talking on the phone. I was going to get a nose and cartilage piercing. I was a minor and they were the only place that told me about the consent forms. Trinity, one of their amazing tattoo artists, told me where to find it exactally, what I needed, the cost, everything I could have possibly wanted to know. They were the cheapest by about 20 bucks on everything. I went into the studio, immediatley impressed with cleanliness and presentation (the tattoo artists association, or the main organization, has guidlines for what to look for in a clean tattoo studio. They compleated every one. Simon, the piercer was put the day that I can in. But he stopped by, planning on staying for maybe ten minutes for something not tattoo or piercing related, and offered to do mine since I was there. Very nice :) he told me all about the piercing, aftercare, hiding it, cleaning it, and told me the cheapest basic way to clean and care for it. No high proced specialty products :) just the basic soaps at walmart. My piercings were both done so painlessly, it was easy, relaxed and felt like getting blood drawn. Not bad at all. Simon took the time to explain to me the simple steps to it and explained when I wanted more info. He didnt treat me like a costomer, he treated me like a person. My mom came in the next day to get her nose pierced. Effortlessly and totally worth it :) I later went in to try to think up tattoo ideas. Trinity was about to close but stayed and helped me and my mom figure out what we wanted. He also said that because I was interested in becoming a tattoo artist he would tell me where to go, what steps to take. He said he would reveiw my portfolio and help me figure out what the next step is. Very, VERY nice there!! I am going there later today to get another piercing done :) totally worth the time to go check them out!!! HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED!!!

Overland parks best shop!!!! I came in a few month's ago to this shop to have my half sleeve designed and started, I'm so glad i picked this place! I checked out other shops in the area and was just not happy with the shop's themselves and the people in those studio's.I was looking for someone who was really experianced with asian design's and there meanings.There artist russ was the perfect find,he is very educated in asian tattooing and there meanings.I gave him the most basic idea of what i was looking for and not only did the piece that he designed for me was not only beautiful but he was able to tell me what the meanings of each element and how they worked together. We just finished my tattoo today and i cannot belive i have such a great tattoo on me,Of all the time i've spent there getting tattooed on i can say i've never seen such a cool shop with some of the the best artists around,just walking in there and seeing how great that shop looks will blow your mind!!! And there work is even better,this place is a one of a kind shop,the best in o.p...thank you russ i'll see ya agian as soon as i figure out what i want on the other arm
When looking for a tattoo artist I would suggest many things. Look for clean, licensed, history with other clientele. In all business you can ask for references. In this business it seems to be a fly by night for the clientele. A client walks into a tattoo parlor with an idea you hope that the artist you encounter can take it to the next level. I believe that Mace Arnold is that man. I have had several tattoos done in his office and if I "EVER" needed a correction or a fix he has "ALWAYS" been willing to help. He has a talent for taking a tattoo to the next level. He does not suggest that you get it done "RIGHT NOW" that my friend is "YOUR" choice. I have found that I give my deposit and let him draw up the design and then "WE" change the design to what I perceive it to be and he lets you know if it will work or not. I have had several ideas that once he created them did not work for him or me. I believe you must "trust" the artist you choose. I trust Mace Arnold with design, execution and artistic talent.
King City tattoo and piercing parlor is a great place to go if you want to get a tattoo or a piercing. I had a tattoo done by one of the artists and I absolutely love the job she did. My artist made sure it was exactly how I wanted it and made sure the placement of the tattoo was to my satisfaction. I have also gotten piercings done at King City also. I have referred to of my very close friends to visit this parlor and they also had a great experience and loved the work done. The workers are very professional and experienced. They have a good sense or humor and are very kind, answering any or your questions and strive to help you in anyway they can. They have loud heavy metal music playing and makes you feel like your in the rock concert. I love the atmosphere there and the quality of work the artists and piercers do. I highly recommend it to anybody who is trying to find a good place to go to.
Gary Barber aka:Proffesor Inkslinger is one of the most professional and knowledgable Artist's I know. His shop is clean and organized and has flash from past as well as present. I am a retired SAILOR with 32 years of service and have been in Tattoo Shop's , Studio's and Parlor's all around the world. You know,what's a SAILOR without a tattoo or two or three or full or half sleeves back piece etc etc. Not only is he an excellent Artist, but I have seen many of the KC area Artist's come out of his studio after serving under his skilled teaching. His daughter,Beka has become quite an accomplished Artist herself. The Professor has tattooed my wife and four sons and each is very pleased with the work. I HIGHLY RECCOMMEND HIS SHOP TO ANYONE.
If your looking for the best Tattoo experience, Then King city is the place , I have been Tattooed in nearly all the shops around here and Trinity at King city is by far the best .I got a full color custom half sleeve so have spent some time there , All the Artists and owners have treated me with a family type welcome . While being worked on I watched Artist Little M and piercer Simon do equally good work and everyone was happy with their work. Trinity Himself is the most skilled & detailed artist Ive met and i will go nowhere else in the future . I felt like i got 100% value and a killer piece of artwork. Dont waste time and disappointment going anywhere else.

I took my 17 year old daughter in to have her nose pierced and I have to say as a mother the FIRST thing I noticed was HOW clean the shop was!!! I have never been into a tattoo shop that was as classy as King City. SECONDLY Simon is simply put.....THE BEST!!! He answered all of our questions with compassion and did not once make us feel like we were "bothering" him!! He was SOOO good that she ended up getting another piercing!! I have since passed out ALL of the business cards I took and recommend King City to anyone!!! The staff is GREAT!!! Hands down, the best shop in KC!! Way to go guys (and M!) You are the BEST!!!
Over the past 8 years I've gone exclusively to Body Art, Inc. for my work. Mace custom designs all of my tattoos and his flash work off the walls is excellent. Compared to many of the other shops around in KC and in the Johnson County area I find his cost to be very reasonable for the art and service he provides. I've had over 30 hours of work done and receive many complements on my tattoos. I've even brought my Uncles and Father in law there for tattoos. In a nutshell- Great guy, great tattoos, excellent attention to detail in a clean location and very professional.
I recently went to king city tattoos and wanted a tattoo on my ribs but wasn't sure exactly what I wanted. Trinity, a tattoo artist there helped me pin point a perfect idea for what I was wanting. After he drew it up I loved the drawing and was amazed at the amount of detail that went into it. After I got the tattoo it looked better than on paper and I was impressed at the amount of detail and color that went into it. Overall the experience was great at king city and I would love if Trinity did the rest of my tattoos.
