I got my nose pierced by Eric and he was helpful and great. The overall experience was awesome. The entire place was very clean.
We are from north carolina and visit my brother multiple times a year in cCharleston.This trip we brought our niece with us. She decides she wants her nose pierced so we decided to check out exotic impressions in summerville. Immediately when we walked in, the staff were super nice and answered any questions we had. And of course being a protective aunt, I was looking around for the cleanliness and how they done the piercing. I give this place 10 stars. Great service and super clean.
If you are considering getting a tattoo at this establishment, there are a few things you should know. One, if you make an appointment, count on the tattoo artist not being ready when you arrive, not even close. Two, if you want to get an estimate of how much a piece will be or how long it will take to do before you go in to get this permanently inked on your body during multiple sessions, don't count on an accurate number the first time. Or second time. Or third time. Three, don't expect any privacy here, or respect, because you're the customer/"canvas" and not the artist, so you're going to have other artists, customers, and associates of the artist constantly walking in and out of the room, disturbing the artist and dragging out the entire process, so you pay for more time than what you're actually getting (this is a charge by the hour place). Four, if you do make an appointment, don't expect to keep it. While the artist is booking his own work, the shop is also assigning work to the artist, leading to scheduling conflicts--so basically what I'm saying is that this place is disorganzied and unprofessional. Five, if you're 2 of 4 sessions down on a tattoo, don't expect that this gives the artist any reason to want to answer your calls or respond to your messages at all, because you're not a customer--no, at this establishment, you're merely the canvas who signed up to be permanently painted by a person who doesn't even care if you're happy with what's on your body because he's the artist, and it doesn't matter how much much you've spent.
Prior to writing this review, I thought Artistic Ink was a decent shop. The employees' unprofessionalism is what deserves a two star rating.I worked with artist, Nick Bishop, to sketch and place the first tattoo in a half-sleeve. He did clean and meticulous work, but over-promised and under-delivered the progress he could make in a six hour sitting. At first this wasn't a concern, because overall the work was good.I called several times as a follow-up once my tattoo healed. I asked the receptionist (MaryAnn) to tell Nick to give me a call to discuss how long it would take to wrap up the piece. I received zero call backs from Nick and no updates from MaryAnn. Still, this wasn't a huge deal. Finally, I had a second appointment scheduled... or at least I thought I did. I arrived 20 minutes early and Nick wasn't there. No one in the shop knew what was going on, so I left. While in the car I received a call from...dun dun dunnnn...MaryAnn. She had the nerve to inform me I misunderstood the appointment she organized. What? Excuse me. No. You're just an idiot. I guess they didn't care about the $600+ cash (no credit/debit accepted) I was planning to spend during my second appointment to finish up one tattoo. They also didn't seem to remember I was planning a half sleeve.Unless you're planning to get work done in one sitting, don't risk the annoyance due to unprofessionalism. Find a shop who doesn't hire idiots, is consistent in their service and cares about your overall experience. I'm taking my business elsewhere.
I just got my belly button pierced by Kara and she was awesome! I definitely recommend her and Premier Piercing. I was really scared and nervous and she made me feel really relaxed and comfortable and made my piercing close to painless! They also had a huge sale going on so pretty much knocked half off of the price of the piercing I was expecting to have to pay much more than I did. She also asked what kind of music I listened to and played it in the shop while I was getting pierced. It was a great experience doing business with them. :)
Wonderful place to get pierced very clean and very friendly. Kate Burns has done every one of my piercings, haven't had a problem with any of them and has been nothing but a joy to be around.
I'm from Cali and when I moved to Charleston I kept looking for an artist that was good enough to do the same quality of work that I had gotten done back home in San Fran and heard about Joshua from a friend. The quality of the tattoos he has done on me are actually better than the work I have from 4 different artists and I love them! I'm amazed by the man! He is now the only person who will ever tattoo me and I would recommend him to everyone.
Everyone is completely clean, and professional. Best prices, best advice on your piercing questions/concerns, and best all around studio in the low country. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Love my exotic family!
clean proffesional ,and knowledgable huge selection of jewelry
