I was so excited to get a small airplane tattoo on my finger. My friend had the tattoo already and I was getting a matching one. Right off the bat, they said they couldn’t do the airplane silhouette that I wanted. I showed them the picture of my friend’s tattoo. They said the detail on the plane was too small and that they couldn’t do it....but I was thinking in my head, “Well how did my friend get it then?!” Disappointed, I went with a simpler design. My artist went rather fast and, honestly, insanely sloppy. I wanted her to stop because I could see how the edges weren’t straight or crisp. I immediately saw how assymetrical the plane looked. It was supposed to be even and symmetrical...just like the stencil was....now I have a crooked airplane in which the body does not match up with the front of the plane. The wings are angled differently AND one is also longer than the other. AND the tail of the plane is so lop sided, everyone was saying something after noticing. I am SO incredibly upset about this tattoo and artist. I wish I had gone somewhere else or even just had a different artist. My friend’s tattoo turned out great.
andy bell is an old partner of mine and i just read this review were this guy was trash talking him over a deposit of a $100.00 i doubt very seriously if things went as he has said they did have i known andy belll for dam near my whole life,always been about making that mighty dollar i cant put personal info out in the open but let me just tell you this you could be the softest person in the world a lame ,a duck,etc..if you paid andy for something he always came through ...so its hard for me to believe that he ripped you off a hundread deposit....a hundo aint going to make him or break him and if you feel your tattoo would cost 200.00 tops somewere else then go get what you paid for which would be most likely chicken scratch...i walked in to never fade and was greated with the best of service ever andy wasnt there he had just steped out but other artists steped up and was there anything i needed was offered,so i rate never fade with 5 stars ....ill leave a little quize for andy bell....it was 1995 it was a song i couldnt quit listining to we were roommates and the song went as follows girl before i met you i was F.I.N.E. fine your loves made me a prisoner ya my hearts been doin time ..........love ya homie proud of what you became and acomplished your goals just like you used to talk about...im in DENVER COLORADO ANDY take care of your self yes you know who it is the great M.M
The owner (Chelsea) does amazing work. Haven't seen anything she couldn't accomplish in a tattoo. Have my next appointment scheduled already.The apprentices also do amazing art, so you should check all of it out!
If I could have given this experience less than 1 star I would have. But that wasn't an option-so here it is. I was referred to Andy Bell from several friends of mine-one of whom I had been with when they went to get a tattoo done by him. His work is amazing and so I waited 6-7 years to get my next tattoo done Bc he was hard to track down and I wanted my next tattoo to be perfect. Not only did I tell him this, but I also told him that I was ok to wait a few months if he was booked that far out on his schedule. I went up with my idea-gave him all my info, he couldn't find his scheduling book and so he took my info and gave me his cell info even. Didn't think it would be an issue to give him my deposit since I had known ppl to receive work from him previously and all had gone well for them. It has been over 2 weeks now. I haven't heard anything from him. I have called his cell and left messages, the shop and left messages for him to return my call, several texts and I even went to the shop yesterday to get my deposit back...they were closed during business hours. I went at 5pm and they were supposed to be open from 12-10:30pm. I just want to let other ppl know that not only did I not even get out on the schedule for my tattoo--but now I out $100 deposit on a tattoo that would prob only cost me $200 MAX. Worst customer service and tattoo experience I have had yet. Def a huge run around. Shame u can't just get a good tattoo artist that provides good customer service as well. I will be going somewhere else and wanted to share my experience so others don't have this happen to them
I was tatooed by Macus. He was professional, made great use of time, confident in his work and skill and gave me a clean, Beautiful tatoo. I'd definitely recommend this shop.
The time spent with the comstumer was wonderful , gave me exactly what I wanted above and beyond . wanted to connect our family as one in an art form and he was able to give us that . can't wait to go back and finish our family tree
I just got my piercings done by Dennis who gave great advice and was so professional and friendly. I love my piercings and would definitely go again. Very clean as well.
When I came in JB from the Downtown Studio was working the desk, he took look at who would be able do fit me in Without hesitation! After he told me that they had someone who could draw me up something, I was set! I got set up with "Dan Fields", He said he would go draw something up, and in no time, he came back with a beautiful piece of art work, and we placed it over the area I wanted covered and, it almost fit just perfect! I had No complaints or suggestions to change anything to his idea on what would work to cover it.It took alot of work, and Dan work diligently to make this Horrible Tattoo into a New beautiful piece of art, that I am More than pleased with! I am in Love with! I Can Not Thank him enough!I highly Recommend Self Infected Studios, St. Peters & the Downtown location, if your looking for 100% professional, friendly, upfront, honest, and Amazing art work, & looking for that same day or even for that next week tattoo, don't fool your self on looking around! Go here!
Amazing Man along with his work :) V3ry friendly and clean. It was a smoothe process. He went above and beyond.
Midwest Rick is amazing! He's done almost all of my work. Solid line work, amazing saturation, creative designs. He listens to you, leans about you and tailors designs to you.
