Ryan was great came in for a touchup and ended up with a complete rework it was excellent and it was like getting tatted by a family member I love suzie m's and will always make sure they are taken care of ;)
I had my first experience with this shop just a few weeks ago and it was overall an awesome experience. The entire staff was not only professional but friendly and nice to talk with. The booth was private and my artist Ryan Brown does an excellent job and I would highly recommend his work. He is able to do many styles of work and give people what they are looking for. It was also nice that the owner, think his name was Kelly, who has been tattooing for many many years to give helpful guidance and advice to Ryan on different styles and textures to make my tattoo as awesome as possible. Definitely had a great experience and will be returning in the future.
Susie Ms has done a lot of updating as of recently. With now two locations in close proximity, they offer a huge variety of artists to choose from, that are ready and willing to do your tattoo or piercing, as well as answer questions and ease concerns that you may have about past, current or future body modifications. What Susie M's has to offer is not only limited to a excellent tattoo experience, but they also produce as well as sell tattoo supplies. From high quality tattoo machines that are both innovative and artist friendly. The environment is clean and inviting with hospital grade sterilization that you should expect. Several artists there specialize in large custom tattoo designs, with tons of experience in sleeves, back pieces or even entire body suits, draw directly on your skin, out of an artists head. Customer satisfaction is of the highest priority and making sure you leave with a pleasant experience. I trust Susie M's with my skin with confidence, so should you!
Do not go here to get a tattoo done. I used Jed Miller to do my tattoo. I took in 2 pictures of what I wanted done and he said he would be willing to do it. He said he would charge me 200-250 for what I wanted done, seemed pretty reasonable. I put down my deposit and waited for my first appointment to come around. The day of the appointment, he was late and made us sit in the lobby for about 30 minutes waiting for him. He finally rolls up like he was surprised I was there when we had set up the specific time frame beforehand. it took him 30 additional minutes to set up his station and get ready to do the tattoo. He took my idea and ran with it. Drew it on me, and it looked great at first, once I saw the finished drawing, I asked him why it looked crooked, he said that was due to the natural curvature of my body. This was my first tattoo so my first mistake was trusting a child with a tattoo gun. He also will change the appointment times on you and not say a word. I gave him my cell phone number so that if my appointment needed to be changed, he would be able to notify me. I got to the shop one day that my appointment had been agreed to be at 2:30, he said I missed my appointment. I have never missed an appointment in my life! When I asked why he didn’t call me, he said "I don't call my work to come in" Then he had the audacity to tell me that he called someone else to come in and replace my appointment time. Correct me if I am wrong here, but isn't that a little hypocritical? This happened twice. He said he had it written down in the appointment book for an earlier time, the ink was smudged and looked like it had just barely been written in there. The tattoo is about 40% done, and its crooked. He took my design and turned it into a cartoon. Cartoons are not sexy, nor does it capture the meaning of the tattoo. I have since found a new artist that believes he will be able to fix Jed’s "art" and actually give me what I wanted in the first place. When I told him that I did not want to continue with his work, he told me I needed to give it a chance and that it will look better when he is done. As far as I know, a crooked tattoo cannot be fixed by time. Seriously Jed, if you are going to work in a profession that you are putting things permanently on people's bodies, time to work on your realism and not turn a tattoo that is supposed to be sexy into a cartoon.
Jed making leaps and bounds – I have recently been very impressed by jed's portfolio. It is growing quickly the art is well done. When I first met jed it seemed he struggled a little. Now i would reccomend him to any and all of my friends . He is also very fast. He gets the tats done quickly and with excellent results.
lalalaaaaa – I went there for my first tattoo, and I was suprised cause they did it right there and then.
I got a dandylion turning into a birds, I dont remember the guys name that did it.
I loved it. They rock! (:
Shop around some more... – My cousin from Canada came to visit me in SLC, and we decided to get a tattoo together before she left. She got some work on her leg that she was disapointed with. She got it fixed when she got home and it actually turned out very nice.
I got a small tattoo on my wrist, the lines went from thick to thin in many spots, it was not fully colored in. I was told I could come in and get it fixed up for free so I went back in a few weeks later and it actually ended up looking worse, I couldn't believe it.
Even though I could go in for free again, I've lost all faith in my tattoo artists ability. His name was Kenny. I am now looking around for someone to fix it, and possibly add to it to cover up the messed up lines. I'll do my homework a little better this time before I just walk in someplace on a whim..
They screwed up big time. – I had heard some good things about Susie M's, so I went in and looked at a couple of the artists' portfolios and decided I wanted to get my work done there. I made the appointment when the day came, I was asked to wait for over an hour past my appointment time just to see the tattooist. I decided that I would just stick it out though, so I waited...and waited...and waited. Finally Susie herself came to tattoo me. Smelling like pot. I was impressed by her portfolio so I didn't say anything, figuring this wasn't anything out of the ordinary. I ended up getting a tat which is NOT AT ALL what I wanted. It looks NOTHING like the pictures I brought in. People always think it's fake because the colors look like they were drawn on by a crayola marker and because the lines are not straight or clean whatsoever. I am completely disappointed with this tattoo and I am going to have it fixed by somebody who can actually handle a needle. I honestly think that the establishment should be shut down for providing such appallingly horrible service.
Happy customer – I have 6 tattoo's 5 of them had been done at Susie M's. I just got my 6th this weekend, let me say I am impressed! The staff is excellent (my last tattoo I got there was 4 years ago) and they are amazing artists. I had Kenny do my tatt and it turned out excellent. It looks just like the pciture I brought in, only improved. The shading he did on it really amkes it pop. I wouldn't dream of going any other place. Aside from being a great artist, Kenny is one funny guy. He had me laughing the whole time. MY girlfriend who came with me for my tattoo was so relaxed in that environment that she is now ready to get her first tattoo ( she had been some what frightened) Thanks to all The Susie M staff and Kenny we will see you soon. TAHNKS FOR THE BEE!!!!!!!
great staff! – Jed did an amazing job on my tattoo. The entire staff at susie m's is very friendly and are willing to listen to what you want and they make sure to give you what you want. They are all also amazing artists and very good with freehand. This was my 4th tattoo but my first time at this shop, i will continue to go to susie m's from now on.
