nice lady but horrible tattooist – I went in and talked to Nikki about doing a piece. She said she could create it so I went ahead and paid the $25 "drawing" deposit. Now this was going to be my 12th tattoo and I never had to put down a deposit like this before. I was told I could come back the following week to check out the drawing. I got there and Nikki was not there but Stacey was and she showed me the piece. I had questions and changes I wanted to make so Stacey called Nikki. After a few minutes Stacey came over and told me Nikki would not be coming in. I tried to talk to Stacey about the piece and she assured me it would not look the way it did on the paper because Nikki would enhance it, adding she could not put all the details on the drawing. Against my better judgement I put down an additional deposit which was half the cost of the tattoo. Again something I never had to do at any other shop. When I questioned Stacey told me, this was standard for any shop. To make a long story short, i went the next week to have the tattoo done and it is the WORST piece I have on my body. It is pathetic, sloppy, unexceptable work that should not come from someone with seventeen years experience, I have seen jail house tattoos that look better.

I went 10 minutes away to Ink Link and the guys there are awesome!! I have since had four piece done there and 1 touch up and I am completely satisified. NO DEPOSITS of any kind, I paid when the work was done.

As soon as Nikki's tattoo heals, they have agreed to cover it up. Nikki is a very nice person but I did not like the job she did on me at all !!

ADDED 10/24/07 TO RESPOND TO SHOP RESPONSE:

I am not a competitor or a former artist. I had a piece down on a Saturday in August. I can't remember the exact date. The tattoo does not need to be touched up, it needs to be covered up. It is really a bad tattoo. I dont know if Nikki is not use to tattooing brown skin or what but it is horrible. I have no reason to say anything bad except for I received a bad tattoo.

After reviewing my appointment schedule for Aug, Sept, & Oct. this complaint doesn't add up. Nor do any of the specific comments about how a drawing question would be handeled at the studio.Let alone a tattoo. My experience is that people who don't like the drawing don't move forward with the appt. All the appointments I have had during this time have been back in for folow up or I have spoken directly to the client. Thats the beauty of being a custom artist. I only do select work and most of it is done in sessions over a period of weeks. This is not a place where people pop in and get a little something and are on there way. My shop is not a walmart of tattoos like some places around the city.

I strongly feel like if someone really spent the type money they are complaining about they would come back in and ask for the complimentary touch up that comes with the tattoo if needed. Not run to another shop.

I stongly feel this is made up by a jealous competitor or disgruntled artist

Nikki rocks! – I visited Charlotte recently and went to Nikki's Tattoo Studio with a friend. It was super clean and the staff was fun and professional. Totally someone to trust when it comes to permanently inking your bod. Designs were great too. Especially for someone looking for a woman's touch, I'd recommend Nikki's in a heartbeat. The atmosphere was really nice with big comfy couches and warm decor (almost more spa like).
