For one they had an advertised price stating piercings were $20. I get there only to find out it's $40. They conveniently had an ATM in the building. I go to the piercing are he cleans the area off as he's supposed to. It took him several tries to do the piercing which should've been a warning for me to leave then. I stayed and he wrapped it us and instructed me what to clean it with. Within a week of having the crooked dermal piercing the jewel comes out. Once I saw it was missing I went back had to wait 20 minutes to be addressed. Once I explain the situation to the lady she looks at the piercing and immediately asked who did it. I informed her and she says Umph it's crooked. Not only did she not offer to fix it or advise me when they guy will be in to fix his error then I had to end up buying jewelry to go into the piercing for $10. The jewelry they had was straight garbage. Two days later while in the shower I hit the piercing and it comes out completely mind you this is a dermal.
My husband bought me $125 worth of gift certificates for Christmas in 2009, I got pregnant shortly thereafter and couldn't use them. I put them away and honestly forgot about them until I came across them a few weeks ago. There is no expiration date on the certificates so when I went to use them I was told I would only get $50 credit toward a $160 tattoo instead of the total face value that was paid. The ownership has not changed and there is no expiration date on the certificates!! I was told by the owner, Jason Lightfoot, that HE is the one that is going to lose money on the tattoo...I'm not exactly sure how that's possible since HIS SHOP HAS ALREADY BEEN PAID $125. Basically he's telling me that he wants me to pay $235 for a tattoo that, by his own admission, is only worth $160. I say $235 because my husband has already given him $125, of which he is only willing to give me $50 credit, and I have to come out of pocket another $110 for the tattoo. $50 is not even 1/2 the value of the gift certificates, which again HAVE NO EXPIRATION DATE!! The last time I checked when a person pays for a service that they never receive it's called FRAUD or STEALING. I will be leaving reviews everywhere I possibly can and I am still considering my legal options at this point!! Mr. Lightfoot may have a great portfolio but his customer service skills are highly lacking, if you want to be treated fairly and respectfully I would suggest finding another shop!!
I just got my second tattoo and am extremely happy with how it turned out. I was a walk in with a vague idea of what I wanted and Jay Lightfoot was gracious in working with me and hooked me up on the spot. The Man Is Awesome!I will never get another tattoo from anywhere but Shanghai.
I love this shop! Very clean and friendly people. The artist Raphael took my idea and turned it into a master piece. I have a full leg sleeve by him and it's won first place at the south fl tattoo expo and has also been pictured in four different tattoo magazines! You don't have to take my word for it the ink speaks for itself! I've uploaded a few pictures to give you a visual. Raphael's portraits are amazing too, I've included a couple of pics of some of those he's done on me as well!
I have 2 tattoos done by Jay Lightfoot--my last one was a cover up over Minnie mouse with a blue/teal celtic cross--absolutely amazing!! never would know Minnie was ever there! colors are beautiful! He did a sun on my back for me several yrs ago that I get lots of compliments on!!! I highly recommend them! Staff is very helpful & attentive!! very nice environment to relax in!! I tried to post a pic but couldn't get it to upload!
I went to Shanghai tattoo to get a stick man I had on my leg covered. My artist was jenny she was grate , she printed out what I wanted on my leg looked at it once and free handed it on to my leg took all of 5 mins. Then she was on her way with my tattoo it looks amazing you can even tell what she covered she did it so good. I would defiantly go back there for more work and I've already told a ton of people about her and the shop.
Amazing TalentJordi Ramone fixed a large rib piece that was needed a lot of help. He exceeded my expectations and I LOVE my new ink art! Great people and great talent!
Shanghai Tattoo is the best. I love all the staff, and the prices are very reasonable too. You will not regret your decision to go to shanghai and get tatted.
No place anywhere could ever touch the caliber of Shanghai Tattoo Company. Spartanburg is blessed to have a tattoo shop as classy and welcoming as this one is. All the artists are great. World class work. Would never go anywhere else to get my ink. Thanks Shanghai Tattoo.
I have been a client of Shanghai Tattoo for a couple of years now, and I have to say that this is the most amazing tattoo parlor I have ever been to. The staff is super friendly, and the artists are second to none. The shop is absolutely beautiful inside, and everyone is really cool and makes you feel very comfortable as soon as you walk in the door. All the artists are fantastic, but I personally have had 4 tattoos done by Jay, and each one is a beautiful piece of art. I highly recommend Shanghai Tattoo Company to anyone looking to get a true piece of art. You will not regret it... I cant give this place enough stars!
