Best jewelry selection around. If they dont have something you're looking for, ask. I've had them order me jewelry and they also have a lot that isnt in the display cases.

sanja Selimic

Not a good place to go, me and my husband was visiting and stopped in to check things out, not a good idea, the guy was very rude I just wanted a tattoo on my leg something small and maybe a new tongue ring but he was very pushy and demanding of my choice, we had to walk away from that situation, I can’t stand people like that

Raven Koehler

I've been here many times and it's always fantastic! Everyone is very friendly and helpful with any question you may have. I would recommend them to any and everyone!

Joshua Hagy

Jon Aaron

Hand down one of the most professional and curteous, well mannered establishments ive ever been to. Have been there several times and plan on going back many more.

Juliana Mabry

Never a bad experience!

Trish Byrnes

Dawn Edwards

These guys ROCK! This was my second tattoo in over 20 years and they by far exceeded my expectations. Bryan, my artist, was helpful, accommodating, kind, and patient. He was very informative and made sure I was comfortable and felt at ease. Pat is a sweet guy who really made my visit a pleasure. The shop is clean, well-organized, efficient, aware of health and safety requirements, and their work is amazing. They do piercings too and also adhere to all the strict health requirements and restrictions as demanded by the State. Their prices are very reasonable and they take as much time as you need in order to make sure you are 100% satisfied with their work. They offer a one-year guarantee on their tattoos and will fix any work that you might not be happy with for free at any time in that first year. I would highly recommend them to anybody looking for a great place for their next tattoo or piercing!

Stephany Johnson

I have gotten 2 of my tattoos and all of my piercings here. Coming from someone who has had bad experiences in other shops, I will never go anywhere else. You can tell that Bert knows what he is doing and has a passion for his job.

Tim Stout

Kelsey Babcock

I got my ear pierced here a month back. I’m very happy with the outcome. Over all my experience here was great.

alyssa arriaga

Bert does great work and is very clean! He is the only one who does anything on me now!

george joseph

Best tattoo shop around hands down!! Ive been coming here for years and recommend this shop to all of my friends.


Jacandle Lynn

The dude needs to chill out. Ridiculously rude for absolutely no reason. Edit: I didn’t come with a group of friends and I wasn’t drinking or under the influence of anything else. Your thinking of someone else. My sister got her nose pierced and you insisted she wasn’t listening as she was trying to take into consideration the fact that she has sensitive skin. If we were rude and we’re acrually trying to be rude, we’d own it. This time we both had absolutely no idea why you acted as unprofessional as you did. You didn’t even explain the care instructions as you just assumed we didn’t want to hear them. Even though she really did. Oh and remember common courtesy goes a long way in these situations. That means BOTH ways.

Trinity Montantes

i got a piercing here less than a week ago and it’s a pretty good piercing for the amount of money i paid except for the bar maybe being a bit too short, however the piercer’s “customer service” made me incredibly uncomfortable. i make it a habit to get to know my piercers/tattoo artists prior to them performing their work on me because it helps me build a good foundation of trust with them, and this includes asking questions on their history and process. this piercer was unfoundedly defensive when i politely questioned him on some things he told me that were different from what my other piercer tells me, simply because i was curious about his process and knowledge. he boasted 20 years of experience but level of experience will never trump making sure your customers are comfortable in your shop and i was not, and i am not typically someone who is made uncomfortable easily. i almost jumped out of the chair and refused the piercing when he very rudely confronted me on “making him explain himself to me.” professionals should always be open and accepting to questions, no matter how long they’ve been in their practice. i won’t be going back here, instead i’ll continue to go back to my preferred piercer who is more than happy to educate his customers. cheap work is nice, sure, but i will gladly pay extra for kind service

Kyra Koehler

I've had all my piercings done here. I refuse to go anywhere else. The owner is not rude and has made me feel comfortable and happy every time I go in!!

Jennifer Atwood

I was really happy that the guy who re-pierced my tongue moved it up so it wasn't hurting. Would give 5 starts but it was still a bit sideways crooked.. not sure if it wasn't lined right or old piercing our tongue weird but I will definitely be going back and loved the hospitality!!!

Johnathan Smith

Lucas French

Really great people, and great price. Never had a tattoo there but many piercings. Some people complain of infection like any other place but thats not the piercer thats people not taking care of themselves. They use clean needles fresh out of the package and sterilized jewlery every time not once have i been dissatisfied. I will be going back with friends i recomend it.

selina urbina

Briuna Scribner

Very clean and fairly priced. Bert does amazing work.

Kevin Arnett

I love this shop!! Bert does great work and explains everything to me!

Bridget Boley

Between my family and I, we used to get a LOT of tattoos from here. Since the good tattoo artists left, this place has dropped its standards. The customer service this place gives is AWFUL! One incident, they had me drive an hour and a half for my tattoo APPOINTMENT to decline me because he wasn't prepared for the workload. This time I provided a simple drawing and they stated I would have to drive an hour and a half to make a deposit, just to come in another day to get it done. when I explained the bullshit I have already gone through with them, they said I could go somewhere else with a

Cute and simple

Beauty Gurl

Got my nose pierced a year ago it was amaazing for only 10 dollars and i might go back with friends to get are toungeeee

Bert Krampus

Emerald Vaughn

I received all my piercings from here, the owner is very professional and helpful in every way. Anytime I had an issue with a piercing or just questions he helped at no additional cost. You can tell he really cares and is genuine about his work. Go here if you can!

Jewel Hupe

Felt very pushed off by the staff. Even when my piercing got infected it was just them telling me that is was all my fault. We not very good at answering my questions for my different piercings and concerns. But they are cheep so that is a plus.

Brittany Storm

Always loved getting piercings there but totally forgot do they take credit cards or just cash?

Daniel Vaughn

Great people, great place. Straight forward. No BS and they won’t rip you off. Great place to get a tattoo or piercing!

Nick Gilbert

Krissy Ferguson


Stacy Schuhrke

I love this place! Went in with a friend she got 2 cartilage piercings and I got a eyebrow piercing. The guy was super nice and is really awesome! I'm recommending this place to all my friends and actually taking one of them there today for an industrial. Can't wait to go get more from here! ♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

Michelle Jones

Best tattoo parlor in the area!!!

Jessica Singer

Allan Burtin

Bad service owner refused to service me and my friends after the piercing my friend had kept falling out. Doesn't recommend. Pay the regular price else where.

Kelly Moran

I loved this place! My sisters and I came here for matching tattoos about a month ago. I messaged the parlor ahead of time letting him know what we wanted and when we were coming- when we walked in, he already had our design ready for us to look at. We also got a discount for all getting the same thing on the same day. Also, our artist was extremely patient with us, especially as my one sister had never gotten a tattoo before. He also did a great job! I will definitely be coming here again!

Bert did an amazing job on both my tattoo and my piercing. It was the most professional experience i have had with an artist. <3

Craig Easterling

I was in this shop yesterday when a group came in after drinking and the owner had to ask them to leave. He was very patient with them. And I see now that they left him a 1 star review. Personally that situation makes me question the validity of any of the negative reviews found here. While I was there another group came in for piercing and were handled with the utmost level of professionalism. I will be returning and recommending Bert to all my friends and family.

The Tree Navigator

High quality ink at very affordable prices. I would highly recommend this shop. Will be returning for more ink ASAP thanks again for the awesome work and experience!

amber terry

The prices and the guys are great...can t wait to go Saturday

Kimberly Silverstein

By far the best shop I've gone to, and I've been to most of the shops in this area. Bert (the owner/piercer/tattoo artist) has been a 1 man shop for as long as I've known and he obviously puts his heart and soul into the business. He takes extra steps to not only make me (and my friends) feel comfortable but also to ensure the cleanliness of every piercing and tattoo.

Holly Swaim

Got a daith piercing at this place yesterday. Great price and great service. Everything was explained in detail to me (procedure and after care). It’s not even sore today- best experience with a piercing that I’ve had. Highly recommend, and I’m going to let other friends know to go there, even though we aren’t from around that area. The travel is worth it.
