1st, I am a 46 yo female. I have been wanting a tattoo for several years & decided to go as a Mother's Day gift to myself. My kids accompanied me to the location which is clean & the employees are professional & friendly. The tattoo artist who took care of me is John. John answered all of my questions, was calm in his responses, was patient with me, was professional beyond my expectation, explained the care of my tatoo, and I would recommend him to anyone. My tattoo is perfect. I took a picture of what I wanted in to the shop and with John's enhancements, which he drew for me in advance, it looks even better. John, is the best, honestly, I didnt know what to expect, but even with my fears & insecurity, he walked me through the process from start to finish, and I really, really appreciate it. I think I could do another, but no time soon. When I do decide, it will definitley be at Dark Horse, and I hope John is still there.
It was a girls weekend and we wanted to get our belly buttons pierced. Lucked up on Fenix that was open until 2AM. Angie answered the phone and called us her"southern belles" she was awesome with helping us find the location, since we were not from Seattle. Ty was great with keeping us laughing before piercing our navels. Laughed from the time we walked in (because Angie knew who we were first step into the door) until we left. Ty was great with keeping our minds occupied on relaxing since he was the one who will be poking us with a needle. I would reccommend Fenix to everyone, asked if I could take Ty back home with me!!. If you ever relocate to North Carolina, Ty let me know..I will be your first client!!! We called around to other places but in the end Fenix ended up being the best place and the price was cheaper too!!!!
I've been tattooed here are few times and it is amazing! I literally count down the days before every sitting. Everyone here is super down to earth and friendly and the counter staff usually remembers my name whenever I come in. I've never seen a bad tattoo come out of the shop and people stop me wherever I go to ask me where I'm getting my work done. It's a little expensive, but I mean money shouldn't be an issue when it comes to marking yourself permanently and in my opinion, it's more than worth every cent. This is the only place I'll ever get tattooed and you'd be wise to do the same.
I have two tattoos from at this location. He is a great guy who is quite talented with traditional tattoos. Also he works quickly and efficiently. Everyone in this shop are professionals and friendly to boot. I have never received attitude walking into this shop and I've never been sent to voicemail when calling either! There is a reason this business wins awards so often. I have never tried to do a walk-in here, there are more of a custom tattoo purveyor. Setting up a consultation is always your best bet.
I THOUGHT THE EXPERIENCE WOULD BE VERY PAINFUL. BUT WHEN THE MOMENT CAME IT WAS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED. IT DIDN'T HURT AT ALL! I WAS VERY SURPRISED. THE PEOPLE THERE ARE REALLY NICE. THEY MAKE YOU FEEL VERY WELCOMED WHEN YOU COME IN. I RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE WHO IS GOING TO GET THEIR FIRST PIERCING OR TENTH. =)
I got my lobes pierced in late March 2008 (my first piercing), my nostril pierced in early June, my lobes stretched in early June, and my rook and conch in late July. Each visit was easy to schedule and pleasant. Appointments are very easy to get, I've scheduled two of mine on the same day.
Hasn't failed me!!!! I am so so sooooo HAPPY about my new tattoo that I just got I wish that I could post it so you could see his talent. The man is great. Ty you WILL for sure see us back. " PORTRAIT TATTOO" Ty's the man!!!
Went in for a nose piercing and worked with Jeremy. He was very professional and informative. He made the whole experience so much better than I anticipated. Will definitely return to this place.
i got my nipples pierced there yesterday 9/22/07 and they were very nice there and if i got another peircing or tattoo i would go there again
Benjamin tattooed me, and his work is close to impeccable! Small studios spaces, but the work is my best tattoo.
