I had a tattoo retouched by Shannon back in May, 2009. Originally, I had made a phone call with them in 2007 after I had done some research to find out who was the best tattoo artist in Memphis. At that time I thought I could get an appointment right away, but was shocked when I was told that their next available appointment wouldn't be until six months later. Of course, I didn't want to wait that long, and so I asked them if they could recommend me a local tattoo shop to get my tattoo retouched. They generously gave me a couple names for future reference and they kept saying sorry that they really couldn't get me in. Yes, I was not patient, so the result was that I wasn't really pleased because I chose one of the other local shops to get my retouch job and the artist didn't really listen to what I wanted. In winter 2008 I decided to call Ramesses Shadow again, and of course same as the year before, I was told my appointment would be a wait of at least half a year. I decided to be patient this time. After all, a tattoo is gonna stay on my body for the rest of my life, I want to really like it and get it professionally done. Finally, I got my tattoo redone, and I am really really pleased and feel relief. Not only because of the skill of Shannon, but also how patient and caring he makes me feel even after when I called worried about my skin peeling, he took time to explain and give advice. Best tattoo artist shop in town, it deserves its reputation.
by Bobby 05/28/2011 When I look for an artist to put a permanent piece of artistic work on my skin, I take extreme care in looking for a reputable artist. I have found that the best information comes from people who have had many experiences,( good and bad), with many tattoo shops. Word of mouth and LOYALTY to a tattoo shop goes a long way when someone recommends a shop and artist. This is why I write this review telling each person who reads this review that the artist`s and body piercing expert at THE TATTOO SHOP in Memphis, Tn. are BY FAR the most experienced at their craft with MANY decades of experience! I will ALWAYS RECOMMEND MIKE FOR BODY-PIERCINGS AND MIQUEL FOR ALL COLOR, BLACK/GRAY, TRIBAL, PORTRAITS OR SPECIFIC CUSTOM ARTWORK! Miquel has a very unique ability to CREATE AND DESIGN ANY CUSTOM IMAGE FOR A CLIENT! THE TATTOO SHOP IS 100% CLEAN, 100% STERILE AND ALSO 100% GREAT ATTITUDES AND AN ATMOSPHERE FAR ABOVE THE OTHERS! I WOULD LIKE TO ALSO STATE THAT "I AM NOT" AN ARTIST OR PIERCER AT THE TATTOO SHOP, BUT A CONVERTED LOYAL CLIENT!!! GIVE MIKE AND MIQUEL A CALL AND YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!!!!!
I couldn't have asked for a better experience! I'm usually not one for taking chances, especially not on a tattoo parlor with only one prior review, but when I was greeted by the woman at the front desk I instantly felt comfortable. She was extremely personable and hands down one of the nicest people around, the same goes for my artist, Daniel. He scripted my tattoo more beautifully than I had even envisioned and the tattoo process itself was quick and easy. I wanted the tattoo higher than the original placement and he quickly fixed it to my liking. Very clean and comfortable environment. I'm visiting Memphis from Georgia and I can honestly say The Skull x Rose Tattoo Collective would and will definitely be worth another trip to the city. Absolutely wonderful!!
I was told about this place and read the reviews! I went in super friendly crew..my reconmendation would be Rodney or Tim..Rodney draws all sorts of unique designs and sketches and does very bold outlines ad super colorful shading, And Tim does very petite lines with super sharp colors and eye of the needle detail..and Miss Tor there does some badass piercings and cosmetic tattooing..very personal and very good results and very mom and pop friendly attitudes! great place for a first time tat or even ur twenty something one! by far one ofhe elite shops in Memphis, TN! Lovin what i got and what me and my family got there ..check them out..youll never be disappointed!
Hate this shop! There are no real tattoo artist in there! I wouldn't recommend any of them to anyone! The shop stinks, it's too small, and there's no privacy everything is out in the opening! They are not friendly at all, they're only friendly when you pay them. I went with a friend when she got her tattoo and she tried to get me to get one but I said heck no, this place isn't professional! Only tattoo shop in Memphis I would recommend to anyone would be "No Regrets" on Madison. they're the best tattoo/piercing shop in Memphis. They have great service, staff, and the shop is highly maintained. The artist are very professional.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had my first tattoo done here and I was highly pleased with the artist's clean line work and precision. I also have a few piercings, they were not done here, but I had a complication with my belly button piercing. I was hoping the piercer could give me some advice. Let me say she has been so kind and helpful. She is always willing to help and answer all of my questions, as well as give me a regime to follow. She is very knowledgeable and has given me a wonderful experience. If you have any piercing needs, I recommend No regrets tattoo! They will treat you right and make you feel like you're important.
I regret tattoo size. Told artist, Dave, that i wanted tat no larger than quarter to cover scar. I showed him pix and was told to get detail, I would need to go larger. I say no to large size. 1st drawing I told him not enuff jazz like photos and too large then show him other photos of smaller tats. He say those want work and maybe I should come back another day or just trust him. I gave in cuz he made me feel like I was being crybaby. He was right, I cried when I got home cuz I wasnt strong enuff to say tattoo too big, not what I wanted. Shame on me.
This is the best tattoo/piercing shop in Memphis Tennessee. The staff is very friendly. The shop itself is very clean and maintained outside and inside. All the artist are very professional and I don't mind any of them doing me a tat. I got my first tattoo done by Jordan Epperson and I love it so much, I can't wait to go back and get my second one done. Michael is the best piercer ever, he did my nose piercing and I was so nervous but he gave me so much comfort I can't wait for him to pierce my belly.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got my first tattoo on my foot a week ago Friday. I had wanted one for years and never followed through until now. I would recommend Trilogy to anyone. Very clean and sterile environment. Very friendly business willing to answer any questions you may have. I love my tattoo and I'm so glad I finally did it. Thanks again Trilogy for this exciting experience. And a BIG shout out to Jason, you did and awesome job. Love, love, love it.
Kevin is a expert in custom pieces and coverups. Did a great job on my peice-- looks like a million dollar painting! VERY VERY Long waiting list-- up to a year-- I had to wait 9 months! Cost is expensive as one would expect with the talent and quality-- $150 an hour without tips!!!!!!!! For the money and wait-- if you have a truly unique piece that you want the best-- Kevin and Shannon are the best.
