Awesome staff, unbeatable quality – This place has, as mentioned before by pleased customers, impeccable sanitation measures. It is very open, bright, and organized to avoid any clutter.
The staff: I've seen MARK for a tattoo (amazing job, awesome price) & I plan on having him do my next one. He was kind of rude at first and didn't seem that excited about it, but after we talked for a few minutes we both relaxed and I ended up w/ a gorgeous piece of art. He made me feel very comfortable, and he didn't mind that my boyfriend sat in on the session (a place in Wallingford said that if I had a tattoo done there, no one else could be in the room-- that gave me the heebie jeebies).
COLE is by far my favorite person at Deep Roots. I absolutely love the way she walks the customer through each of the steps; she is very zen about the whole process, and it really makes me feel good about having her do my piercings. After I had a piercing (done at a place in Portland), go awry she was very helpful and knew exactly what I needed to do. She has also helped me with the lobe stretching process.
RYAN (the owner, I think) is a very cool guy... pretty overthetop about the not touching piercings policy, so don't touch them! The staff will hand you a sani-wipe and ask you not to touch any piercings. Anyway, I would rather be asked to not touch than walk away with infections. He has only done one piercing for me, but it turned out wonderfully.
All the other folks there: fun to talk to, they make the atmosphere upbeat & exciting, etc.
PRICE: One cannot expect to have a healthy, good-looking piercing for $10-- if you want quality, you will have to pay for it. The prices here are about what I would expect of a clean, well-established shop with beautiful jewelry. Mark quoted my tattoo at about $100 & when he finished he decided to only charge me $70.
JEWELRY: Deep Roots has a HUGE selection. Everything that you could even possibly think about wanting-- they have it.
all-in-all: 5 stars.
great location, good cust. service, okay sanitation, so-so results, high prices. – Note: Deep Rooots is NOT a member of the APP (Association of Professional Piercers)
You may be wondering why I say "okay sanitation" and "so-so results?" The sanitation deal is for two reasons: I can't recall, during any of the 3 times I have gotten my lip pierced at this studio, a piercer changing their gloves more than once. Also because of the location: The Ave. A dirty dirty place, lots of homelessness (Don't get me wrong, I have been homeless) and I have seen dirty people go into Deep Roots. The results deal is because 2 out of my 3 experiences there I have not gotten the results that I wanted. The piercings ended up in the wrong place on my lip after healing, and one of them was done at a funny angle.
Best Piercing, Tattoo and Jewlery in Seattle, and probably everywhere else – I have had 13 piercings and one tattoo done at Deep Roots Tattoo and Body Modification in the University District of Washington. Every single one was a positive and exciting experience. The shop is welcoming, spacious, attractive and most of all, more sterile than any other shop I have ever visited. The artists and staff do an incredible job at putting customers at ease, sharing valuable information and answering any questions. The mood is friendly, up-beat and non-judgmental for any and all people coming in. The artists; piercers and tattoo artists alike, are highly professional yet still manage to make their various procedures fun and relaxing with amazing results. Deep Roots also offers a huge selection of very high quality jewelry. I would recommend Deep Roots to everyone looking for a safe and positive experience.
Won't get that sh***y attitude like that shop on the hill – I purchased a piercing and jewelry at the "shop who's name i shall not mention" on broadway in capitol hill. after experiencing their unnecessary attitude one too many times (not to mention feeling unclean when i walk in), i moved on to Deep Roots where EVERYONE there was awesome. they greet you as soon as you walk in the door, it feels like a hospital- sterilized from ceiling to floor i guess, the prices are reasonable and they actually know what they're talking about when you ask for advice. I've brought several friends there and suggest Deep Roots to everyone I talk to. I also explain to them why i would never go back to the "shop who's name i shall not mention" .
Editorial Review – College students and assorted hipsters come to this U District shop to customize their bodies with tattoos and piercings.
Amazing jewelry, awesome artists, completely innovative design, cleanest nicest shop I've ever seen – I was referred to Deep Roots by my friend who had gotten pierced there, and I loved the jewerly she bought there . She said that the whole experience was great, everyone was really knowledgeable and nice. I went in to check out all of the jewelry she raved about, and I was not let down. I've been into almost every shop in the Seattle area, and many in California (where I moved here from), and I have never seen better jewelry anywhere.
I came in just to check it out and research a new tattoo, but I was amazed by the selection of jewelry. The people were really helpful, and they educated me about good jewelry. No one was pretentios or too cool to be helpful. I also found my new tattoo artist, who is drawing me a custom designed piece.
Deep Roots is the cleanest shop I've ever seen, and you can tell they really know their stuff. I'd recommend them to anyone; you won't be disappointed!
They treat you right – I've never been to a spot where customer service was so in play as in Deep Roots. They were so patient even when I came into my appointment late and they would have to close behind schedule. I got my first tattoo done by Mark and he did a great job. He knew I was a bit nervous but explained everything and came up with an excellent design for my custom tattoo. The design ment a lot to me and he got it right. If you ever plan to get a tattoo done get it here. My friend also got her 2nd tattoo done here and her tongue pierced and she was really happy with her experince as well. Thanks Deep Roots, you guys are awesome!!
amazing customer experience – deep roots is amazing very customer oriented the staff were attentive mark and nichole were not only professional but friendly, knowledgeable and very understanding they eased my friends fears and didn't mind if we changed are minds the place is very clean and the staff make sure that all of the equipment is sterile and new even though i had had work done before mark and nichole made sure to review the rules of tattoos and piercings and made sure that i was completly educated on what they were doing and the inherent dangers before and during the process if your going to get work done while in seattle go to deep roots!
