Cloud Nine is amazing! – Yesterday I got a tattoo piece done that turned out amazing! I love how cool the staff was about my inexperience in tattoo's. They gave me advice on location of the tattoo also on the colors used. Not only was the staff knowledgeable but they were personal. My tattoo was a piece of my dog that had recently passed, Karri the owner sat in on the tattoo and listened to my story and comforted me. My artist Marcos did a fantastic job. I researched as many tattoo shops as possible, Cloud Nine was an easy choice and one I'm glad I made. The shop was clean, organized, and professional. Overall Cloud Nine made my tattoo experience awesome. I highly recommend them to anyone!
had a great experience – i just got my navel pierced at cloud nine tonight and i was very very pleased. i had gotten my navel pierced before at a different location and had a less than stellar experience and less than acceptable barbel and cleaning instructions. aaron at cloud nine was fantastic. he has a very soothing voice, very helpful to those who are nervous or if it is your first piercing. he was very calming and very thorough. the entire place was clean and friendly. i was actually nervous walking in but was greated shortly and they made me feel very comfortable right from the start. once i was taken back to a piercing room, he drew exactly where the piercing was going to be and let me look at it beforehand to make sure it was exactly where i wanted it to be placed. basically they did everything right. and afterwards i have had no pain on the piercing and it feels great!! i highly recommend Cloud Nine for piercings to anyone looking for a clean, thorough, welcoming piercing parlor :)
Cloud Nine Southside Tattoo & Body Piercing – Just thought I'd share what I know about Cloud Nine Southside. I recently had two permanent cosmetic procedures done there. My eyebrows & eyeliner look so natural, no one has even caught on. Not even my guy who wakes up next to me every morning! :-) It's been so great, when I hop out of the shower I don't have to run for my mascara. I don't have body piercings or tattos so my experience in this area is limited. You can be sure I checked this place out before I went ahead with the procedures. I can tell you that once you see how clean Cloud Nine is that you'll be impressed just like I was. The Staff is friendly, helpful & the best part was I didn't feel rushed. After all, I wanted to be sure it was perfect since it was going to be on my face for the rest of my LIFE! I might add that I'm over 50...... When I get ready, I'm going back for the permanent lip procedure. I'm looking good and loving it. Thanks to Karri at Cloud Nine!
Clean, professional, convenient, competitive... why go anywhere else? – WTF- I don't know what studio any negative reviewers went to, but it obviously wasn't Cloud Nine...
I drove out from Atlanta to have a pre-existing tattoo added to, and couldn't be happier with the work I received. My artist was Ed, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend both the artist and the studio to my friends and family. I walked out of there with the tattoo I had always wished I'd gotten the first time around, and was proud to show it off as soon as I could, barhopping in B'ham.
Also, I was just as happy with the customization of my tattoo as I was with the quality. Ed took my pre-existing work and expanded on it entirely freehand. NOBODY else out there has my tattoo!
I've had work done in close to a dozen shops in the southeast US, and I've never seen a shop where they had their act together as well as at Cloud Nine. I mean- they've got their Health Dept inspection on the wall for you to look at (flawless), as well as their autoclave spore test report on the wall for you to see (also flawless), their floors are buffed and waxed, the walls are clean, the employees are entertaining to say the least, and it's just a comfortable place in general right down to the tattoo chairs themselves! Plus, I watched Ed change his latex gloves close to a dozen times during my tattoo to prevent any chance of cross-contamination, and every needle he got out while working on me was BRAND NEW. It's true I'm not a doctor, but I don't know what else they could possibly do to flat out ELIMINATE the potential for any kind of infections at Cloud Nine. What the hell else could you ask for from a tattoo shop, really?!?
I really don't know what else to say, I just felt compelled to leave an *accurate* and *honest* review after reading some of the other BS reviews on this page- some conveniently posted "Anonymously." I wear the free Cloud Nine shirt I got with my tattoo proudly, and have no problem putting my name to that.
Cloud Nine Shines Every Way You Look at It! – The previous review is ludicrous. Please read our customer reviews at InsiderPages dot com. Cloud Nine Southside is state-of-the-art, very clean and managed by someone who has a masters of science degree in public health, 16 years experience as a public health professional and is a guest lecturer for the UAB School of Public Health. The studio is fully inspected and licensed by the Alabama Department of Public Health (ie. health dept.), has never failed a single point during an inspection, and has zero complaints. Our tattoo artists and body piercers have successfully completed Bloodborne Pathogens Prevention training with the American Red Cross and, like healthcare professionals, have been vaccinated to protect them from Hepatitis. All precautions are taken to prevent cross-contamination of infectious diseases including, but not limited to, the regular use and changing of latex gloves, thorough cleaning of all surfaces between customers and the use of disinfectants effective against bacteria, viruses, fungus and tuberculosis. Needles are brand new, sterilized before use, and disposed of in a red biohazard sharps container just like in a doctor?s office?needles are never reused. All instruments are sterilized using industry standard cleaning and sterilization procedures including an ultrasonic and an approved and regularly tested autoclave sterilizer (like they use in hospitals). The staff, artists and body piercers are highly-experienced professionals, sober and take your health and safety very seriously. You can be sure we take all precautions to protect you, even those that the health dept doesn?t require, while we provide you with high quality body art. We invite you to meet our staff and personally inspect our facility, our sterilization room and autoclave test results, our licenses and inspection reports, as well as our artists? portfolios. We take pride in who we are and what we do at Cloud Nine Southside. ? Karri Henning, MSPH, Owner & Manager
