I got a piercing done by Britt. This piercing is a complicated piercing that must be done by somebody who has had tons and tons of experience. He was absolutely awesome. Very informative and honest. He also was very helpful and comforting. I love my new piercing. I recommend Britt for piercings!
I've gotten my nose pierced twice here and went back yesterday to get my navel pierced. All three times, I have been pierced by Harley, who is so calm, sweet, and reassuring. This place is SO CLEAN and professional. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

10 Star Service!! I met Ernest at the Tat Expo in Fort Worth a couple of weeks ago. All the artists there spoke very highly of him. I showed him an image of what I wanted and made an appointment. Yes folks...I drove from Dallas to Houston for my Easter tattoo. This man is a tattoo guru. He recommended a different image than I originally chose. It was by far a hell of a lot better and I agreed. I just knocked out my 1st session for my "Raven" almost 7 hours later. I can't wait til I see the final product. For those of you that have been turned down for an animal realism tattoo...this man will make you a believer. I was being turned down all over DFW by reputable shops. Not only did he cover an old tattoo, he was also very personable. A million thanks for your help. Keep up the good work gentlemen. I'll definitely be coming back for future tattoos
The owner, Randy, just recently pierced my nose. Everything was sanitized, super clean, and very professional. When I made a dumb mistake, and pulled the stud through 3 weeks later, he helped me out. He put in a new piercing for me free of charge. Then I called him not too long after, because my nose was really hurting and wasn't looking great. He walked me through it, told me exactly how to care for it, and was super encouraging. Couldn't ask for better customer service. I have really appreciated the way he's gone above and beyond to help me. Wish I hadn't made the first mistake because my nose was healing super well up to that point. But I highly recommend him!

My wife went to get a tattoo and we both love it. Catfish, the tattoo artist, was very professional and the tattoo turned out exactly as we had hoped for. Definitely call before coming over to see if they have time. Also, don't expect a bigger project to be taken care off the same day, Catfish will take time to draw a draft and everything, which is totally worth the wait!
I got a small tattoo done here today by Jay. He was super nice and professional and he did a really great job. I'm very happy with my new ink and I will be back for more :)

He did a great job and was very friendly! He is a very talented artist. I wasn't thinking of getting anymore tattoo' s but now I am hooked. If/when I get another one it will be here!

Tattoo turned out great! Even without an appointment, Jake was able to get me in! We went a few rounds with creative differences on what to ink - but in the end we finally saw eye-to-eye and I'm glad we did! Great artist - extremely talented. Will definitely use him for future work!! The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because I didn't really like having MY creativity challenged for something in the end I'M paying for. Not to discount the artist - because it's his work - but it's my body... Other than that - no complaints!! :-)
The best tattoo shop I Hv ever been to. Extremely clean shop. The best customer service ever. They will take the time and explain things to you. I have had the privilege of having an amazing artist every time I have gone. Travis is very professional and beyond talented when It comes to tattoos and making one comfortable. I will never go anywhere else. Very satisfied from start to finish.
