I had an appointment for a tattoo on 12-21-2012 with Kevin. Showed up for appointment to find the shop closed for remodeling. No one contacted me to inform. Very unprofessional, recommend that others utilize one of the other high quality establishments in Columbus ( showed up at Short North Tattoo, was taken as a walk in by Matt, received an excellent tattoo at an even better price than that quoted by Kevin).

After months of finding designs I finally made the choice to get my first tattoo! Knowing it would be on my body forever it was a big choice on where to go & I couldn't be happier with my choice of Inspired by Ink!! Many of my friends have gone here so I called & talked to the owner, Michelle and she was beyond friendly & helpful and set me up an appointment with an amazing artist, Kevin! I sent him a picture of thr design I wanted ( a key with the word " faith " in the middle) & the next day he had it all ready for me! Kevin made my key so much more detailed then the original! I'm so excited to have such a beautiful tattoo on my foot! I'm beyond happy with my tattoo and Inspired by Ink. I've gotten many compliment on my new tattoo. I've already told all my friends waiting tattoo to come to this amazing place! Only days after getting my first, I'm itching for another tattoo and I know just where to go now!

Great place. – I have been coming to inspired for about 6 years now even just to hang out. i have always felt at home there and the employees have always been great people / artists. a lot of great artists over the years and i can't wait to be back home and visit.

Awesome Place! – all these negative reviews are completely false! i was in there and got a tattoo done on saturday, and everyone that was in there were very nice, and very professional. not once did i think anyone was rude as some have said. if your looking for a great place to get a tatoo, this is the shop in columbus to go to. i will get all my tattoos done there.

Perfect place for first tattoo – I went to Inspired by Ink a year ago, when I was searching places to get my first tattoo. When I walked in the staff answered any questions I had, let me sit in the lobby to look though their portfolios, and asked about my design. They never made me feel pressured to choose to get my tattoo there. I feel this is important. I was 18, probably gullible and a bit ignorant about the tattooing business, but they made me feel like a customer should. Now I have a wonderful tattoo with clean lines and great shading. They took my design and made it much better than I could have ever thought. I will be visiting them again for my next tattoo.

As the owner of Inspired By Ink... – I would like for everyone to know that as the owner, I take every review seriously. Unfortunately, we recently had to let an apprentice go. It seems they have decided to retaliate and ask people to leave negative reviews. While they are false, they can also be damaging. Inspired has been open and servicing the Columbus and surrounding areas for 10 years! I hope you will see past the hostility and come see for yourself. As a matter of fact I stand behind my business so strongly that I encourage anyone who has any type of issue to contact me directly. Here is my email inspiredbyinktattoos@yahoo (you are unable to leave the ending due to spam detection.) However, it is COM. If anyone should happen to have any type of issue, I am here to help resolve or guide you through it. Thanks for the support. We appreciate your business and we are here to make you feel comfortable and at ease. Have a wonderful day! ....Michelle

My opinion...... Great shop! – well... im by far no tattoo expert but when i walked into inspired for my first tattoo ill admit i was pretty nervous... within minutes of walking in that feeling was gone once i sat down in the chair and just started talking to everyone in the shop .... ben hatfield did an amazing job on the tattoo and next time i get something done i know exactly who and where im going to get it done ...

Absolutely inspired to NOT get Ink here – The staff is beyond rude and as non professional as you can get. I am an avid collector of ink- Not some this was my first time in a tattoo shop- so i just don't get the tattoo vibe type. I had previously lived in Columbus and visited inspired before and the former staff- was very professorial and courteous. It seems the former staff have all left the shop. What I found could be best be described as Scratchers with an attitude. I walked in looked at a couple portfolio's and the staff acted as if I should feel blessed to just be in their presence. The shop was far from sterile, and left me with the feeling i was in a Times Square Peep show booth. I didn't even want to sit down, never mind get tattooed. There are far better artists/shops who know how to treat a customer and actually give far better quality Tattoo's in Columbus. Save your self a ton of abuse and boatloads of regret when you get something that is by far sub par for the course. I was anything but inspired to get ink here...

Unprofessional, Rude, Creepy – I went in with my sister to get a tattoo done, and I was approached by a medium build bald guy with tattoos all over his throat and neck. We wanted to get a dove for our late grandmother who passed. He seemed somewhat interested and then left with our design to the back.

After being ridiculed for our idea... and overhearing a sly remark about "these chicks want a tattoo for their dead ass grandma"... that followed with laughter from about 4 other guys who did not look like they worked there, we left.

I will not be returning, and they didn't even give me back the printed photo we brought in. I DO NOT RECOMMEND this place.

Won't ever go back here. – I used to be a frequent client to this shop when David Tevenal worked there, but no more.

While Dave T. worked there, the shop had a real good 'home' vibe to it and I enjoyed my time there. Dave made every customer feel welcome and really took the time to get to know people. On top of his great salesmanship and personality, he gives the best tattoos in town. There is no doubt in my mind that he blows everyone else away.

After Dave left I tried to go back to inspired by, but things just weren't the same. Their artists weren't friendly and I honestly wasn't interested in any of their work. I didn't even feel welcome there. Not to mention the shop was a mess.
