I got my nose pierced and it didn't hurt one bit! He explained everything during the process and aftercare instructions! I'm coming back for more piercings and a tattoo

Rachel Sanchez

Ive had +20 piercings by Koz, and never one issue. He is so knowledgeable and patient in explaining everything. Ive had tattoos done by three artists, most recent Ivan, and they all came out and healed amazing. The whole staff is friendly, always easy to reach, and the place is clean! I urge everyone not just on the southside but in the city to check them out!

Koz is amazing! Went there the other day for a piercing and I'm going back for more today !!!

Birgundi Baker

Koz is a great piercer and is very professional. I recommend this clean and nice place

Jodie Carter

Raven Talbert

Koz is awesome. He was quick and he talked me through the piercing. I was shaking when i walked in and he was calm and cool to talk with. I wasn't sure what side of my nose to get the piercing and he helped pick the side because i pulled out my camera and went straight to the left side of my face. It showed he pays attention and will give you what looks best. He's just awesome. I will forever come to Koz for all my future piercings. (2nd piercing done by him)

Sandra Rosiles

Got my tattoo with Cody he's awesome, my son in law got his first one with him too he made us feel so welcomed, definitely recommend him, great guess service from Koz.


My tattoo looks awful. Considering it's supposed to be a memorial for someone I lost and I hate it! .. The color isn't pigmented enough, you can clearly see the lack of skill in the lines.. Kind of reminds me of someone coloring outside the lines , didn't have a steady hand at all . And I have no clue what that sticker thing was they put on my arm after I got the tattoo but it pulled some of the color OUT OF THE TATTOO. Some parts resemble a scab now. Totally not worth it DO NOT spend your money here. And I feel like they charged me double the tattoo isn't even that big. Such a waste of 150$ Now I must get an even bigger tattoo to cover this one because it doesn't look good.

Brandon Wojciechowski

Always great knowledgeable service, reason I've been going back for the past 7 years.

I went in this place and inquired about having two of my fingers tattooed. I wanted one 6 letter word on one finger and a 5 letter word on the side of the other finger. The guy told me I'd have to wait until next week and that the price would be $110 a finger‼️

I had my Daith piercing done here. Koz is great, he talks you through the entire process. The place is clean and comfortable!

Kory Mitcheff

F_ucking awesome. Piercer is great in all respects. Koz pierced my lower navel and some... other things and it was always a fantastic experience

Yajaira Rodriguez

amazing! I first discovered Basement as I was searching for a professional to do my anti-eyebrow piercing. I found a few shops but none of the piercers gave off the same vibe as Koz. Such a great guy! I was only 16 at the time and he made it a point to educate me all about the piercing and its aftercare. Now that Im 18 I went back to get my septum! Such a great place

I had my belly piercing done here about two years ago. No problems, no itching, no wounds. Koz is very great and friendly. I was nervous at first but he made me feel calm and comfortable. We talked throughout the process. He was so fast, didn’t even know when he was done. He did a very neat job. Also, the prices are affordable.

Visiting artist was very good did great work and nice. Do not like that on credit machine there is a tip added to it, that should be customers choice. This is the most expensive place I have ever been to.

i absolutely love basement ink. ive been here multiple times for koz to pierce me, and dont have any form of complaint. the piercings all turned out awesome and i couldnt be happier with them. koz is super chill and fun to talk to, and walks u thru everything he does, step by step. im planning to have him pierce me more, as soon as my most recent one heels :) ive gone with a few friends to get tattoos from basement ink as welll, and tho i personally didnt get any tats from here, i enjoyed the atmosphere that came with it. (the tatts turned out great by the way!!). deffinately the only place you should consider going to. <3<3

Star Ship

Favorite piercing by koz done a month ago is my surface piercing.. would add picture but don't know how


GO TO THIS PLACE GO TO THIS PLACE GO TO THIS PLACE. Everyone makes you feel welcomed! I got my belly pierced here and Koz was very professional about it Unlike some parlors these guys care about your concerns. Any questions I had they answered with detail. I felt safe under their wing!! lol If you are looking to get a tattoo or pierced up I HIGHLY recommend you go to Basement Ink, they are very creative and experienced. The prices are decent as well as the quality and you definitly won't regret it!

Morgan Chatman

I went to Basement Ink to get my belly pierced in February and I had the best experience! I went in a couple of days ago to get a tattoo by Nicole. My tattoo was a black silhouette and the ink ran, after I cleaned it I realized how it was not shaded in very well. I can also see little spots where my skin color is protruding. I am not pleased with the work I have received. I will update my review in regards to how they resolve the situation.

Balanced Chaos

Koz is the best. All the staff is knowledgeable and talented, and Koz is seriously the most professional, informed piercer I've ever met.

My sister and I came in just to have them quote a price for a tatt we wanted ...Cody was soooo nice that we ended up coming back the same day and getting our work done by him!!!! The shop is very nice, & very clean.... & his customer service is absolutely AMAZING!!! He made us feel so comfortable and he was just soooo welcoming sister and I will def be regulars!!!!!

Tiffanni Human

Very friendly. I really love my tattoo. The young lady who did mine was awesome. The colors and the outline came out perfect. Thank you so much


Would rather check your credit before they show you any work or any merchandise. Guess they fail to realize IF I DON'T LIKE IT, THE COST IS IRRELEVANT!! Poor customer service. I see a response but can't reply to it directly, so: I didn't bring in any photo. I inquired about work/artists for an idea and merchandise/ring - but the girl I talked to was so busy telling me how much the idea or each piece of jewelry would cost that I couldn't get a word in edgewise. And she was snotty about it. Really feel she was intimating that I wouldn't be able to afford what i asked about. News flash: This ain't my first rodeo. I'm covered in tats and your poor customer service at the outset of a transaction cost you a customer. If the customer isn't asking how much it costs, don't offer that information. To reiterate: It's IRRELEVANT if I don't like what I see. And rude.
