Great piercing

My husband and I went and both got our tongues pierced at the Helotes location. It was great. We were greeted as soon as we walked in. They were very respectful and relational. It was quick and painless. They explained everything about after care. It has been 4 days and the piercing feels great. I have had a lot of piercings done in the past. Now this is the only place I will get them done. So much better than my past experiences.

Jerry Lee is the greatest!

Jerry Lee has worked on my complete sleeve on my right arm. He took the existing half sleeve and completed it down to the wrist. Very well done, excellent work. So good in fact, that he just started my other arm last night.

Clean facilities, great people, would highly recommend absolute tattoo and especially Jerry Lee.

See you in a couple weeks after I heal up!

Skip this shop

The piercing we got went fine.

But the Tattoo Guy, Shane did not understand how to create Light, Dept or Shadow. I will not say he is Tattoo Artist because of this, and he could not freehand a Simple leaf. This is no exaggeration!

Shane was mouthy, rude and even through a little B*@ch Fit, wadded up his drawing and threw it on the floor.
What an A@* !
And SLOW it took this guy twice as long as it should have. I was in the shop from noon until 6:30 for one flower!
That is CRAZY SLOW!!!

This is Not my first Tattoo shop, so I know what I'm talking about.
I will be going to another shop to fix Shane's work.
Do yourself a big favor and skip this shop.

This was the Wurzbach Rd. Location.

Watch out San Antonio! looks like absolute tattoos is getting a whole new make-over inside and out. I went in the other day and met their newest artist STEVE! i highly recommend him! i love his work, and he's very down to earth. i have no regrets with my newest rose tatt and will be returning very soon. thanks Steve!

I came to Absolute on a recommendation for their artist JC. I left a deposit and made an appt and came back the following Friday for the tat. When I got there the next week, they tried to give me to a different artist, they quoted me a price and took my deposit but never gave JC the artwork and did not tell her about the appt. Plus, she was working at the HWY 90 location that day and they didn't tell me that either. I finally made it to the HWY 90 location but JC changed the price they quoted me but did tell me she would do more detail and make it worth my while. She did, I was not disappointed there. But, I do NOT recommend the shop on Wurzbach at all.



The Best

Absolute Tattoo has the best the manager Aldofo, runs the business the best way any manger could. He makes sure you ok when you get any tattoo or piercing. I should know he did my first piercing and my sister tounge again, and when she panic he made sure he got sugar up again and cold rag and even put a fan on her. He the kindest and sweetest person i have met that works for a tattoo palor.
