Thank You – I am covered in tats and a few years ago I switched from a different local shop. I did not know that a tattoo could be so pain free. I had no scabs and it evenly healed. I recommend blue magic to anyone wanting a tattoo. My schedule is busy and they said they would hang out after hours to work on my piece. I couldn't be happier with the atmosphere and the people there. The shop is clean and they designed a picture with me that was a lot better than I originally walked in with. I have more skin to cover and I cant wait to get in there again.. Thanks again for the perfect tattoo!
Great Experience – I was recently there about a week ago. Followed my tattoo artist who had moved from the city out to this shop (so happy I found him!).
I found the shop to be very clean and the staff to b very personable.
I had a great experience. It was comfortable and welcoming.
I will most certainly be back.
Awesome Shop – Awesome shop. Really liked it and the people. Have had a few tattoos there. Some early on in the shops beginning, some later, was there a few weeks ago and really liked the changes. New management rocks and the shop looks very good and clean. If you haven't been there in a while I would definitely recommend a return visit, it's worth the trip.
Da BLUE Magic – They do tend to have a Rude Vibe in the Air,,Rushing through Work just to Get Paid.
The Love of Seeing A Master Ink Worker Apply His Craft,is
Lost at the Sight of some of the Tracer, color by Number, Employee's.......Get Your Passion back !
Put the Magic back in Da' BLUE..
And Stop Playing Lil'Kid's with 10 Doll'a Plug Rings,They alredy Paid to get it Done.
Nope. – I have only personally been into the shop once. The guy 'helping' me was passive-aggressively rude and seemed to want to just get me to leave rather than answer my questions or help me in any manner.
Everyone I have known to go in there has had bad experiences. I drew a design out for one of my friends and he went to get it done there. It turned out blotchy and the lines were all skippy and waved, not clean and straight like they should have been. Another friend got his second tongue piercing there and they screwed that up too by piercing it too close to the older tongue piercing because within a month the two piercings merged. Those are just two stories from friends. Like I said, everyone I've met who has gone there has had bad experience. Even other tattoo artists whom I mention Blue Magic to cringe whenever I talk about it!
Great Work – They have done all 4 piercings and 3 of my tattoos, they do great work. they are great to get along with. Juan gave my friend and I a great price for our tattoos and I recommend them to anyone looking to get a tattoo.
Gentle and Beautiful – I first found Juan due to his generous nature and providing a gift certificate to our local Battered Womans home silent raffle. I was the fortunate one to get that cerficate. He created my matching piece to my brother who lives in a different state. They are identical. Work done on my spine and I could have napped through the whole thing. I went back yesterday to have my memorial piece for my Uncle. Once again, on my spine and painless. Juan is as gentle as they come. I would go no place else. Very attentive to my comfort, my art work and did and redid what I asked. I certainly would recommend and will return with more. Thank you for creating my peacefulness. (I could have done without all the tape though)
Guess you don't want my money! – I went in there with a rough draft of a tattoo I wanted. The first guy I talked to was all about giving me what I wanted and even started drawing things for me. He had an appointment so he called another guy over to talk about ideas. This other guy came over and just started bad mouthing my whole idea, telling me it wouldn't work and wouldn't flow together. After being told for twenty minutes what a horrible idea I had and how he would do it but he knows it would look bad, I asked him what he suggested. His reply was an aweful idea and not at all what I want. He obviously didn't understand my concept or even take the time to ask really what I wanted. He just kept saying how bad my idea was. Did he ever think maybe I wanted all these things in this order for a reason? And he kept saying it would look like pieces and then connect the dots, it wouldn't flow and he said I should want my art to flow like his does. News flash buddy, your work on your arm doesn't flow! You have two portraits next to each other! Pieces! Like what I was asking for except mine did flow together! But hey I know what I want and I know you must not want my money because you were rude and insulting and you have my negative feedback for life!
Ripped off my 16 year old! – My 16 yr old daughter had her nose pierced here a couple of months ago. She went back in to get a clear plug and was charged $10.00 for 1 plug. Little did they know, mama bear was in the car and called them to ask how if they sold clear plugs and how much they were. $5.00 was the answer! aFTER GOING BACK IN AND GETTING MY FULL REFUND i WAS TOLD BY THE GUY AT THE COUNTER THAT i OFFENDED HIM! wHAT? He was the one who tried to rip off a teenager. She also found out that 2 of her friends only paid 45.00 for their nose piercings. She was charged 55.00. Man o man NOT COOL! Hope the people in the lobby weren't ripped off too! Won't go back there!
wow! how old is your tat chuck? – there hasn't been a Joe for years up there. they have a completely different staff with awesome portfolios now. go see for yourself.
