Very clean and professional. Kris did an awesome piercing job and Dan did an awesome tattoo. Couldn't have been happier.

Awesome place! Awesome staff! Better first tattoo experience then i could have even imagined! Walked in , got consulted right away. My artist did an awesome job,quick, clean, painless, great lines, and its healing fantastic! Had too much fun, will be driving the 5 or so hours for my future sessions no doubt!! -Supra pancakes :)

Maimuna Hussaini

Came in today to get my sisters nose pierced & change up my tragus piercing (couldn’t get the piecing out for a year) Kris was AMAZING. Super friendly & very informative. The place was super clean & the women at the front desk were super friendly as well! Definitely would come back here to get future piercings.

sam russell

This was a great place love the cover up tattoo I got

Jack Hardy

This place is extremely shady with their pricing. My friend and I were going to get tattoos together and the receptionist told him over the phone that to make an appointment, we would need to pay a $50 deposit, but since we were using the same tattoo artist, we would only need to pay one deposit. When we came in for our appointment, I was not satisfied with the tattoo artist's sketch -- it was very basic and poor quality, so I decided not to get a tattoo, but my friend did. However, when we were leaving, the receptionist changed her story and said because I didn't get a tattoo they were still going to charge me $50 plus an additional $3.00 for a credit card transaction fee. I would never go there again.

Paxton Spresser

I've been to a few tattoo shops but this one is by far the best. Everyone there is super cool and the gallery is very clean!! Strongly recommend Atmosphere Tattoo Gallery !

Hannah Marshall

I walked in on Sunday hoping to get a tattoo, and Chris Toms was able to put together a beautiful piece for me based on a vague description of what I was looking for. It was a great experience and I would definitely recommend anyone looking for a tattoo or piercing to consider Atmosphere :)

Maiden Laura

Its quite a sad and unprofessional process trying to do business with them. Frankly it's a shame that in this day and age with all of this technology they never responded to my emails. I tried to follow up, get feedback I received no response, I will not refer one person to them. It's a shame all that lost business I was going to send your way. Good luck to you!

Haley Mahoney

Sean Kim is the best. He is so kind and warm hearted. Truly was awesome to work with. He went out of his way to speak Korean to my mom which made her even more comfortable with getting her first tattoo. I highly recommend him. The shop was extremely clean and everyone was very helpful. 다시 한번 너무 고마워 오빠!!

Kim Poulin

If you need a piercing, Kris is Amazing! Highly recommend

Court Howe

I got my very first dermal at Atmosphere Tattoo with Kris! He was super professional during my consultation and helped me determine the most aesthetically pleasing spot. For the actual piercing procedure he first explained everything, which really calmed my nerves! As for the pain, I felt literally none I was absolutely shocked :) I plan on making the 2 hour drive to see him for all my future piercings. Thanks again dude !

Claudia Cesarotti

A BIG Thank You to Mike and all the staff at Atmosphere Tattoo Gallery! My 2 daughters and I got our 1st ever tattoos today and everyone was so nice! Mike spent time with us making sure we were happy with our choices and drew them up beautifully! We're very happy with the results and will be back when we want more tattoos done.

Heather Mahon-Dellacqua

So after going in this Thursday afternoon around 1ish, I brought a picture of the tattoo I wanted … its was nothing fancy, not a big piece, not a lot of color. I was asked to look at the artists books to get a feel of one that I might like over the another … I wasn't to picky about who would execute the tattoo (all the artist looked like there past works were reputable) it was more working around scheduling with my kids. So the young lady at the front desk didn't really know how to check availability of the artist, she had to ask another co-work (who was there on her day off getting a tattoo for help). She told me maybe Mike could do some time the next day, she took my name, number and said someone would call me later. I feel like I was brushed off. Friday came I never heard back about availability so I called them back shortly after 12. Again I was told they were wrapping up other pieces and they would call me back later in the day… AGAIN I feel like I got the brush -off!!! I get there are artist that don't do certain pieces or parts of someone body …. So now its hitting Saturday evening and I still haven't heard back from anyone at Atmosphere Tattoo Gallery. If they didn't want too the tattoo I wanted I wished they would have been upfront about it in the first place. I would have started looking else where to get it done. Communication is the key to any good reputable business, they need to work on theirs a lot to make people feel welcome and that their business is wanted!!!


Got my septum done by Kris today. Was nervous in the beginning of course, but Kris just made it easy-breezy. Was impressed that there was no pain at all, just some pressure and a couple of tears. Thanks, Kris!

Not your average reviews

Had a great tattoo done here by Cassandra shout out to her because she was great very fun and good conversation. The atmosphere at this shop (no pun intended) is great it's clean and very professional. Everyone there seems really nice and you can tell the artist's love what they do. Would definitely come back for another tattoo!

Mina H

Waited 2 Hours for a Stencil that was Fail

Jason Dankert

First and foremost, I think it is important to note that I am EXTREMELY picky and particular. I was amazed when Chris (Toms) got my vision for my tattoos right on the first try! He listened to what I wanted, reviewed the images I sent him as examples, and executed it perfectly. That is saying a lot coming from me. Needless to say, I highly recommend him for your next tattoo.

Matt Windsor

I cannot day enough good words about Atmosphere and their entire staff. I took my 8 year daughter to get her ears pierced and it was such a great experience. She was a little afraid but their piercer, Kris did an amazing job at keeping her calm and getting it done quick. The second we left their place she said she didn’t even feel it anymore. As a tattooed guy and small business owner myself, I know I have found my next ink spot.

Gwen Mccarten

Clean professional local shop. Mike did my tattoo and I couldn’t be happier. Cam in with initials I wanted and he blended them together for an artistic bracelet- Would highly recommend.

Steven Lopez

Very Professional and creative staff! We travel nearly an hour to come here to get our tattoos and piercings done. Highly recommended

Edison Aranas

Bad experience with one of the artist!!!had an appointment at 1:30pm and artist showed up 5 mins before 2:00!!!and straight up he told me he cannot work on my budget...i have 4 tattoos already done by other artist and for me a good artist can work on your budget!!!!very clean shop...i hope some artist there are willing to work on every customer budget.

Erin L

So in love with my tattoo by Chris. He took his time drawing up an awesome skull for me and his attention to detail was exceptional. He was so chill and friendly. Can’t wait to go back for more from him!!

Lost Shadow

Kris did my piercing and was nice during the initial piercing. Then the receptionists tried to guilt me into tipping. I went back to get it changed to the smaller post which he recommended and he got all frustrated . I waited the week like he told me to. He started swearing and getting frustrated that it wouldn't fit it on right. Then he finally got it on right, but before that he told me I was ruining his day. I didn't like the stud he put in that time, so I went and bought my own stud for the lip. I called and asked if he would change it , he said he would but then didn't when I went in . His assistant told me that Kris wouldn't do it and that he was being nice because Kris would be more blunt about it. Had to go to another tattoo\ piercing shop in order to get it changed . Overall a really bad uncomfortable experience .

Casey Shanahan

Okay this place was GREAT from the first call till I walked out the door. I came here after a friend took his daughter here to get her ear pierced ( also reviewer below) and I live about five mins from here, so I thought I’d check it out. I called to get pricing and the girl who answered the phone was funny and personable right off the bat, which is a great start. I got there and checked right in with the same girl who I spoke with on the phone; process was super fast and she was extremely friendly. Check in was a breeze and I only waited maybe 5 mins before taken back for my piercing. Kris, who did the piercing was very informative, personable and made the entire visit very comfortable. He was extremely knowledgeable about piercings, which made me feel even more comfortable. While setting up, he made sure to explain why he was using the jewelry he was, how the pricing would go and how healing would be expected. He had mentioned he had been doing this for sometime and you could tell because I didn’t feel much when he pierced my tragus at all; HE’S GOOD! I can say this is most likely one of the best experiences I have ever had at a tattoo/piercing shop ( I have 9 tattoos) from start to finish. Process was fast ( maybe there 20 mins from check in to check out) people were extremely friendly, shop was very clean/well kept and they know their stuff there. I will defiantly go back!

Rob Wyka

Really can't say enough good things about this place! They have some amazing that have a plethora of different styles. Recently we had our 6 yo daughter's ears pierced by Kris and he couldn't have been more awesome with her explaining what he was doing and why. He really made the experience great for her

joe fehser

Anthony Cicero is awesome artist. Great atmosphere friendly people and very Knowledgeable on styles and after care.

Steve Cochran

We have been here many times for piercings. Kris is awesome and takes the time to make sure you understand all stages of the healing process and aftercare. It is our go to place for piercings and piercing questions. They have a nice tattoo setup and the place is very clean with comfy couches to sit on if you have to wait.

matthew zuke

I can not say enough nice things about these guys. The shop is absolutely inviting. Nothing but friendly and helpful. Josue is who I went to and he will be getting much business from my family. Stacy absolutely bent over backwards to work with me and my daughter on scheduling. My new permanent tattoo shop

David Vasquez

They do great work and very professional

Angela Duarte

This place is a CLASS ACT. From the first phone call when I spoke with Cassandra it was an awesome experience. I came in with a custom design and she did a perfect job on my tattoo. I will recommend her and the rest of the artists in the place to everyone I know . Thank you so much

Mickey Owano

The reason I went to Atmosphere tattoo is because of Daniel Nilges he is an amazing tattoo artist and only the 2nd person I have ever let tattoo me. It took me almost 10 years to find someone that I could trust to just throw down. He is covering up a bad tattoo that I had done by someone else and has now created a master piece sleeve that is almost finished, then on to complete my right sleeve. Im super happy with the change Dan made with moving over to Atmosphere tattoo, they are a bunch of great artist that are super cool and its just a relaxed badass tattoo shop. I highly recommend Dan at Atmosphere! Thanks Guys!

Anthony Cicero

This place rocks!!! Cicero needs to work at the shop more often but when he does....make sure you snag a piece from him. Check out his work on Instagram @cicerotattoos

Jessica Skelly

Very nice shop!! Everyone was friendly! Cassandra did a great job on my tattoo!

pamela dudek

Love my new tattoo! Joey was great to work with. I will be back!!

Angela Cutesack

Kris was an amazing piercer. Had a great experience getting my cartilage tappered and my friends rook was pierced too! They look and feel awesome!!!

Luke Schneider

My experience here was very high quality and everyone was welcoming. All of the staff knows what they're doing and know how to be super friendly whilst still retaining professionalism. The process itself in getting a piercing or a tattoo is very simple and straightforward here. The setup is well thought out and has the best interests of the people that come here in mind. I came to get a cartilage piercing and Kris, my piercer, displayed a wealth of knowledge and care about the art of piercing. He made it a very fun experience and it was great talking to him, really is a great person and anyone in his care can be sure to expect amazing service. Highly recommend this shop to anyone whether their interest is in a piercing or a tattoo.

tim butzen

Chris Toms is great! I am getting my 3rd piece by him done next Saturday and I cant wait. He is super talented and offers a chill experience and great art work for a sweet and reasonable price!

Steven W

Make sure to check out Joey S. He took a simple stick and done job to a "look what I can do" job. FANTASTIC! Have already told friends to go to him. Good price, service, and talent! 5 STARS!

Jennifer Fecko

Shop was super clean and staff was friendly and topnotch. Had just a bit of a wait as it was a Friday night. A comfy couch, tv, and water were available as we waited. Kris pierced both of my nipples and was extremely quick, professional, and knowledgeable. I highly reccomend.

Lain Rose

I have been here for piercings by Kris several times and I can't say enough about how great this place is. By far one of the cleanest tattoo shops I've ever been in, and it is really a beautiful shop. Everyone here is really nice and friendly. Some tattoo shops can be a bit intimidating and sometimes the staff can be rude but that's never the case. They are super chill and make you feel right at home. Kris is a great piercer, he always takes his time and finds the right placement and jewelry so that I'm happy with my new piercing. He's also really funny and makes every experience memorable. I highly recommend this place, they're the best.

Michelle Obos

Kris did a couple piercings for me and I am thrilled with how they turned out! He is knowledgeable about his craft and everyone there is very friendly.

Matt Saternus

I got my first tattoo from Faith at Atmosphere. She was great and I’m extremely happy with the results. The shop is super clean, the people are nice. I would highly recommend it and will go back for future tattoos.

Haley Squiers

We love this shop! Beautiful inside! Staff is all super friendly and talented. Love going into a tattoo shop and feeling welcomed! Constantly recommending to friends and family!!

Liz Meisinger

I love this place! Kris Hackenson is the best piercer! I came in for dermals under my collar bones and Kris was very laid back, professional, talked me through the process making sure I understood everything he was doing, AND gave me an AMAZING price! Out of every place I called, this place has the best deals, the best jewelry and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to get high quality piercings done. I'll be back in a couple weeks to get 2 more dermals. So excited!

Audrey Alba

I had a beautiful piece done by Cassandra. She had a super light hand and is highly talented! Cassandra was super sweet and took her time on my tattoo to make sure it was exactly what I wanted. I will be back there for future tattoos and I 10/10 recommend this place. It’s full of amazing talented artists! Oh and the front desk Becca was very helpful at the check in process. Atmosphere Tattoo is hands down the best in the area.

Camila Vargas

I went to go get a double helix piercing and kris their piercer was great. The place was really clean and everybody was really nice. Also the prices were amazing.

Mina H.

Place and People are nice but we were there waiting for 2 hours while the Tattoo "artist" took his time putting the sketch into a tablet to print into stencil paper, which had been emailed over the night before. Simple 2"x2" doodles.


Best experience I've ever had amazing artist and so patient!

Brie B

Had a fantastic experience here! Joey did my tattoo and was great to work with! I also love how close to my apartment the studio is. And everything is very clean! Will be back for sure!

Becky Bender

Excellent! Great experience.

Grace Riccini

I got my tattoo done by Cassandra. Not only did she ease my anxiety before the tattoo, she was super nice while in contact over email before even seeing me. Everyone there is funny, kind, and easy to talk to. I would 100% go again!

Gosia Niklinski

This is the cleanest and friendliest tattoo shop I have ever been to. I got a tattoo here and then took my daughter to get her ears pierced and they did a fantastic job. Prices are very reasonable. Would totally recommend.


5 star- amazing experience from the time your greeted to when you leave. Professional, clean, modern, atmosphere raises the bar for what a tattoo shop should be. Received an amazing tattoo/ piece of art by Claude. Phenomenal tattoo artist and person, look no further if you want to be treated with respect and want only the best tattoo and experience you can get. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Great attention to detail. Perfect first tattoo experience!

Jodi Z

I highly recommend this place. Dan did our tattoos and they look amazing!!! It's was my mom's first at 71 and she couldn't believe how much it didn't hurt!! Before and after lol. Dan is an amazing artist, the shop is clean, sterile and very friendly. I will be going back to have some of my older tattoos touched up very soon. Five stars is not enough!!!

Got my nose pierced with my sis by Kris. Let me just start with the fact that he introduced himself and was polite. He was honest overall great. $50 well spent.

All around best shop I've ever been too!!!!!!

Emily Ryan

Thank you so much!

Amanda morelli

Clean shop, all of the artists I cam in contact with were friendly and had great humor. Joey was a beast with my pet memorial tattoo. I'll definitely be going back

Keith Brenner

UPDATE: JOEY SHERMAN THE TATTOO ARTIST CREEPS ON ME ON FB AND IS NOW ASKING ME TO TAKE THE REVIEW DOWN FOR POSTING MY OPINION. HOW UNPROFESSIONAL IS THAT?. Everyone was nice for the most part. I got a tattoo and I like it, after showing it to friends and doing research I realize I got ripped off by about $100 on the price of it due to the size and the short amount of time the tattoo artist Joey had to spent on it. It looks good I just don't know if I would come back due to the pricing here. I really feel like I got taken advantage of.

Andi Gehlin

Everyone there is extremely nice and helpful. Clean and reasonably priced. Mike tattooed me and I couldn’t be happier! He took the time to make sure the work was done properly and that I was happy with it. Quality work and great communication, even after the tattoo. Definitely going back!

Alondra Vazquez

I got my industrial piercing does around 2 months ago and it was such an amazing experience. Kris was so nice and made the whole experience memorable. The place is very nice, clean and all the people there are incredibly welcoming to walk ins. Honestly, can’t wait to get more piercings done there!

Jon Staples

Great place with a naturally friendly atmosphere. Friendly staff and such a clean place. Had Cassandra do my fiance's and then Mike my first tattoo. Will definitely come back again for more work.

Junior Perez

Had my tattoo done by Kelsey. Great experience very friendly & outgoing she was. Also amazing eye for detail fantastic work. Highly recommend atmosphere tattoo gallery.

Jeff Klosinski

Went in for piercings. Kris answered all of my questions without making me feel like I was wasting his time, and did a great job with the piercing. Made me feel comfortable and explained everything. Obviously passionate about his work and very friendly. I also got a chance to chat with Cassandra, one of the tattoo artists, and she was really friendly. Quality of materials is high. They actually had the jewelry I was looking for in stock, which none of the other shops I called did. Place was very clean and modern. Another standout thing I noticed was the tattoo books actually showcased some beautiful art. The handful of other shops I had been to had strangely mediocre art in their books...and these shops have been around for a long time. Not sure how that is. To be fair, I am completely new to the tattoo world so you can safely disregard my opinion here. Anyway, the art I saw here? Legit AF. They clearly nabbed some great artists. This shop has only been open for a month, but I hope they do well. The people, the space, and the work all seem to be very high quality. Oh! And the cost for my piercings? Like 30-40 less than the other shops I talked to....sweet!

Richard Wellhausen

Timely, courteous and well priced. We went in as a walk in and we were matched with a great artist, Sean Kim, who took our reference art and turned it in to something beautiful of his own. We could not be happier with the results. Thanks!

Jess Schnur

Amazing tattoo shop. The inside is beautiful and clean which is not always the case with a tattoo shop. The artists there are super cool and all very talented from looking at their portfolios. I’ve seen Paul and Faith a decent amount of times and they never disappoint. Highly recommend!
