Jerm is a gem! – I went with my daughter (who just turned 18) to get her 1st tattoo at the Laughing Buddha. Everyone who works there was extremely friendly, supportive and easygoing. She picked the Laughing Buddha because my niece and one of her friends had good experiences there.
When my daughter called to make the consultation appointment, she explained to the woman who answered the phone the design she wanted to create, and was told Jerm was the artist for the job. We met him for the consult and he and my daughter worked together on the design. He asked a lot of questions and they looked at pictures on the web together to narrow down the idea.
The next day we came for the actual tattoo. Jerm had made some sketches with different styles of the idea my daughter had given him. They finalized what looked very pretty (but couldn't express how lovely the final product would turn out!) and the tattooing began. Perhaps we were referred to Jerm because of his patience through what turned out to be a long process on a very intricate and multicolored masterpiece.
This was my daughter's first tattoo and we had little idea what to expect. The first half hour went by easily but then it became increasingly painful. Jerm never faltered and never lost his cool. He was calm and professional throughout and the end product is amazingly beautiful!
I realized afterward that he had undercharged my daughter by almost half, given how long it actually took. And the final product looks perfect, even though my daughter had a very hard time staying still and quiet by the end! Jerm is professional and very talented. I highly recommend him and the Laughing Buddha!
Best Experience Ever!!! – I have been wanting to get my navel pierced for a long time and I decided to go ahead and do it. I just have to say that I was very shocked at how friendly the staff at Laughing Buddha was! They were professional, but they even made you comfortable.
Chris was more than awesome! I was very nervous about getting the piercing because I wasnt sure of how much it was going to hurt. He did an awesome job of walking me through every step that he was going to make through the process of my piercing. And the pain was a piece of cake, he was so quick it was amazing! He was friendly and sociable, which is very important when you want to help somebody (like me) calm down. I definitely recommend Laughing Buddha and Chris to anybody who is looking to get their navel done :)
I love you Thomas Wade! Really... I do. Thanks for covering up all of my bad experiences at other shops and creating new tatts that I love oh so much!
I have been going to Nina for over 5 years. She fixed a horrible tattoo that no other artist would touch. I have since had multiple fairly large pieces by her and I am extremely happy with the art work. artist and environment.
I recently had my lip pierced by Ruben. It was a wonderful experience. I was very scared of what it would feel like and he did a great job at helping me feel comfortable.
I will continue to go to Laughing Buddha Tattoo for all my piercing and tattoo needs.
I got my nose pierced there two years ago and I just got a tattoo done there a couple of weeks ago as well. I love Laughing Buddha!! They know their stuff and they're very knowledgeable and helpful. I got my tattoo done by Thomas and he did an amazing job! I recommend Laughing Buddha to everyone!
I've had 4 piercings and 1 tattoo and by far Laughing Buddha is my favorite. They are clean, professional, and friendly. What I like most is how you are taken across the hall (for piercings) and watch as the piercer cleans everything from the jewelry, to the chair, to anything else needed. I've never had an infection and truly think it's because of their dedication to make everything sooooo sanitized.
I also appreciate their variety of jewelry.
Had a wild hair and decided to get a tattoo today! i'm glad i did! Dana gladly helped me out. She was wonderful! She was very nice and talked to me and made feel comfortable. and the work she did was amazing! exactly was i was looking for...three sugar skulls, beautifully done. she is really good....i'm so excited!
and...everyone else was really nice too! great customer service! i will be back...and if you need a tattoo, go see dana, you won't regret it!
I had a great experience here last summer when I was getting my very first tattoo. I found everyone I encountered there to be extremely professional. It was also spotlessly clean, which is really important when someone is going to be sticking needles in you. Expensive yes, but worth every dollar. I am constantly getting compliments on it and I always am quick to let people know where I got it done. Thanks Laughing Buddha!
This review is for their jewelry selection. They have almost everything or can get it in. i was VERY impressed. The girl that worked at the front desk was knowledgeable and welcoming. I had about a million questions, and she happily answered each one. My little brother got his ears pierced here and he was also happy. *Please be aware that this is exactly how CLEAN a piercing shop should be!!! Do not hang out let alone get pierced/tattooed at those dirty, hole in the wall, discount piercing shops. I will be back to pick up some much needed jewelry and they also were more than happy to order me whatever I need.
I was pierced by Ruben.... he was AWESOME. Made me feel extremely comfortable, even though I was a bit nervous (been a while since I had gotten anything pierced). Yeah, it hurt, but he was super fast and they are healing nicely.
The shop itself is clean, bright, and has lots of awesome jewelry. The front desk guy and girl were super nice as well!
Definitely coming back and recommending them to all my friends. :)
