Mace is one of the best in the business. Body Art has been the only place I've been tattooed for years. Other people's work just doesn't stand up to Mace's work. I've referred lots of friends to Body Art and will continue to do so!!
I got my first tattoo yesterday from Amber and I am very happy with the work art she did! Excellent Job at inking names Amber!!
This place is super great! I got my nose pierced here and the piercer was super friendly and he made it totally quick and painless. But what gets better is that my piercing literally fell out the next day and he put it back in for free! And it helps that the shop is well decorated and in general is nice and clean. This is the place to go
I got my first tattoo here, it was a yin yang on my forearm. It was done by Mace. He was very friendly and professional. I will be definitely be returning to get more tattoos in the future.
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.
You can get a tattoo anywhere, but if you want artwork you need to see Mace. Wouldn't go anywhere else.
Mace has very intricate and ornate designs. I like the subtleties in his shading and use of color. I respect and appreciate him for turning away clients that requested racist tatts. Immaculately clean shop and a artist/owner who is passionate about his work.
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.
My brother had a tattoo on his shoulder done by a novice. Mace fixed it and made it look amazing. My brother and I didn't think it could be done, but Mace worked a miracle. The tattoo looks great, it has great lines and definition. It looks like a piece of art now, it used to look like a childish done blob. I am definitely getting a tat from Mace. He is the only one I will let work on me. His place is clean, neat and comfortable. He is patient and calming.
I don't know if they do good tattoos here or not, because I couldn't get past the rude girl who answers the phone and makes the appointments. They won't contact you via email. They don't make appointments over the phone. If you go in, they will make you an appointment for a later date, but don't change the appointment, because you have to go back in to make another appointment because they don't make appointments over the phone unless you leave a deposit. Now, don't expect the girl to tell you these things up front, because she won't.
