Saw all the positive reviews and figured they must be doing something well to get so many. They're incredibly friendly and know exactly what they're doing. Got my ears pierced for the first time and the woman in charge was super helpful in guiding me through the process and care. She answered my questions and was so patient as I thought of any other questions I had.
Becky and John are both amazingly talented and wonderful people. They make you feel comfortable and welcome and are extremely easy to talk to. It's always sparklingly clean. This is a goto spot for all your piercing and tattoo needs (and to buy earrings)

This was definitely a five-star experience. From the first phone call to schedule my appointment all the way through the last drop of ink needled into my skin, I loved every minute of it. Not only was everyone welcoming and friendly, the atmosphere was positive, relaxed but also upbeat. My artist, Mikey Bruce, was incredibly professional and clean. He showed me when he opened up all the new needles so I could see they were sterile. I loved my experience and will definitely be going back. 10/10 would recommend.

Me and my sister came to Kyle spriggs for our first tattoos. I'm so glad I picked this place and him. Our experience was amazing! Kyle was very nice he made any changes we wanted and worked with us to make sure the tattoo was exactly how we wanted it. I would definitely recommend going to Kyle! Amazing artist and amazing shop! Will definitely be back for my other tattoos in the future!
My tattoo artist, Sean, was fantastic and I love the work he did. He was efficient, knowledgeable, and reasonably priced. The only reason this is 4 stars and not 5 is that some of the receptionists would rather not give you the time of day. But that's a pretty minor inconvenience in the experience as a whole. (Pics from about 2 hrs after the tattoo was finished - hence the redness and such)
