Never Coming Back! I have gotten several things done at this shop: lip piercing, naval piercing, nose piercing, and one tattoo. I scheduled an appointment to get a tattoo at 10:30 the next day, everything was fine until we showed up that morning, they weren"t even open! We waited around for an hour waiting for someone to show up, no one ever did. Later on, I called the shop and they apologized and offered me 50% off my tattoo and scheduled another appointment for the next day at the same time. We walk in the next day, THE OWNER, GENO, IS PASSED OUT DRUNK ON THE COUCH! We just left, I'm NEVER coming back to this place, highly unprofessional and I do not reccomend anyone going here because you will NOT be treated with respect!
Awesome, As Always – Hey all, SarahPft here again. I had to get a second account as an account can only review something once. I went back to Indianapolis Ink just a couple of days ago to get my new tattoo and needed to write another review. :]
The first thing I noticed was the shop's new layout. Awesome work guys, it looks GREAT! I was a bit startled when I walked in, but it was very functional.
This time I was tattooed by Dave, and he was great. He drew up an awesome stencil that I was very pleased with. Very steady hands, very efficient, very polite and was always making sure I was okay during the tattooing process. I intended just to get a regular black and white solid piece, but Dave talked me into doing shading. TRUST THESE GUYS! My tattoo looks beyond what I thought it would thanks to him, and I am absolutely in love with it.
This time I had the privilege of meeting Geno, the shop owner. He was so nice and funny, very animated and always talking and moving. He sat in the chair next to me and kept me talking to keep my mind off the pain. However, when I left he was quiet and focused while he worked on a stencil, and I have no doubt he is just as professional when giving a tattoo.
I'm going back in six weeks to get this piece retouched, and I can't wait! These guys rock and I couldn't imagine going elsewhere to get inked.
wishard nurses tattoo party – We had a huge party at Indianpolis Ink and we had a blast. Everything was sterile and each of us reviewed all their equipment before getting tattooed. Geno told us if we wrote a review to post it and we get an extra discount on the next party, and since we didn't have any complaints, we will see you at the next party in july! we wanted to thank dave for his work on the nurses matching tattoos. He took his time and did a great job! Anyone would be silly to go anywhere else.We reviewed every shop in marion county before deciding on Indianapolis Ink, and i am glad to say it was worth it.
shultz rocks – i went in today and got tattooed by shultz, and to say the least this guy rocked my art like noone! i got sleeves and never had i been so well taken care of by my artist. he was nice well spoken and clean cut, though i was nervous at first since i didnt see many tattoos on him. but he did a great job. i had a great time geno was there, a little loud, but funny and kept me smiling even when it hurt the worst. dave seemed quiet, but i liked him as well, and piercer there did like 8 pircing while i was tattooing and even though he seemed a little dorky to me, had very happy customers coming in to shultz's booth to show him these really cool piercings. needless to say i had fun and will return. in the immortal words of terminator ILL BE BACK
Thanks Geno, will be back very soon! – After reading the mixed reviews on this shop i had mixed feelings about even going there. I decided to call Geno and ask about some work. after speaking with him on the phone, in which he was professional and helpful, i decided to go in and see what he could do for me. after arriving i found these rumers to be completely out based, as well as found out that another tattoo artist by the name B-Doogh was who some of the rumers i had heard were actually about. I hadn't wanted to get the tattoo, but Geno had drawn up the perfect piece for me, and just gave me a price that shocked me, as i had been quoted much higher at other shops. He was very quick and professional, and after it was done, i was happier than i ever was about any of my work. I want to say thank you to Geno, i am glad i chose to come in and actually talk to you. I WON'T GO ANYWHERE ELSE.
news 6 voted us #1 cleanest shop in indy – This IS GENO and after reviewing some of these statements below i say to you readers be careful what you believe. we are a #1 shop here in indy and obviously some of these statements here are slanderous. every bad review came on here after i put a stalker in jail who said i did bad things because i wouldn't date here, that traci person. and ever since then after firing employees we had a bunch of bad reviews from them trying to ruin my reputation. well, i can't stand her and let them do this, so i am telling you now, i am voted one of the best artist in indiana AND my shops voted the cleanest shop in indy. we don't have complaints against us and as a matter of fact we are used as training ground for employees by the indianapolis board of health. these bad reviews are an attempt to ruin my good name, well my work and my AWARDS I HAVE WON all speak louder than the haters. so believe what you want, but if you want quality work at affordable prices then come in and make your own judgments, a garauntee you wont make a mistake.
This place is where to go! – I was referred to Indianapolis Ink by a friend, and I was incredibly nervous, as this was my first time in a tattoo shop and I was getting two tattoos and a piercing. I did a walk-in, which most shops wouldn't do. These guys made me feel right at home; they were nice and very funny. The price was half of what I was expecting to pay for all that I needed, which was awesome. The piercing was quick and very nicely done, and I am extremely pleased with it. Before I went to get my stencils put on, my friend asked my artist how much he charges an hour for big tattoos, and Tank said: "I don't do time limits. I tattoo till it's beautiful." That's when I knew I definitely had the right place. Tank took his time on my tattoos, and was in no rush at all. He was completely sterile every step of the way; I know this because I am a nursing assistant, and I watched him the entire time. My tattoos turned out better than I even imagined they would. If I ever want any more tattoos or piercings, I am definitely going to Indianapolis Ink! Thanks guys, you're awesome!
As a side note, they weren't touchy or creepy at all, and their shop wasn't dirty or trashy. The floor is concrete in a lot of places, which may give the illusion of 'dirty', but it's not. Whoever writes those reviews are trying to give them a bad reputation.
Geno is awesome! – I was not a big supporter of tattoos. My husband had one several years ago, but I didn't care one way or another. When my daughter turned 21 a couple years ago she wanted a tat for her birthday. She is an art major and this was a big deal for her. We called around did some research and ended up at Indianapolis Ink. I am a very straight laced person and we were a little leary. Geno did her tat and changed my mind forever! He did an awesome job. He was friendly. Made her feel relaxed. He had one of the best prices we could find.She is very picky about her art work and felt that Geno was a true artist! She still gets comments about how great it is. My husband then went to get a second tat and have his first touched up. Once again we are thrilled with the work as well as the best price ever! Today I took my other daughter in for her first tat and Geno was once again awesome! I read all of the other reviews and can not believe some of the things I read. I have 2 beautiful daughters 19 and 21and Geno was nothing but professional. He did such a good job that I recommend him to everyone. I am still not a huge supporter of tattoos, but if you are going to get one this is the place!
I LOVE THESE GUYS! – At first, i was a little hesitant to get a tattoo here. They had tattoo drawings and papers all over the place, but then Tank came and and honestly made me feel like there wasn't anyone out there who could tattoo me like him. I have been tattooed for 20 years and gone to many shops, but Indianapolis Ink was the most rememberable. I had fun, got a great tattoo, for way less then I know I should have paid(or would have paid anywhere else). These guys were all about the art. As for some of the other comments i have seen, I just can't agree. This shop was the funnest experience of my life. I met the owner while I was there, and talk about hyper! but nice and was all about having a good time. I really love this shop and plan on going back very soon! THANKS TANK!
GENO IS OUR ONLY ARTIST – I am a mom of 3 girls and have been going to Geno for over 3 years. I have seen some bad comments but, thats not the Geno we know. We have always been treated with respect, and honestly alot of fun just hanging around him. His wife is almost always at his parties and shes the nicest person, and so helpful! All our parties have been great. Yea the shop can look a little cluttered, but its not trashy, i am a nurse at Wishard and all us Wishard nurses go to Geno. He's clean and sterile, we know because we watch every step he takes. Over all, I and my daughters will never go anywhere else (us wishard nurses as well). We have had tattoos from some of his artists and they always are top quality... Genos got alot of haters out there trying to ruin his name, well we won't be affected.... GENO IS AWESOME! oh, and Geno, say hi to your wife Kelly from the PARTY GIRLS. We need to get together and throw another one at your shop soon!
