Good place, Great tattoo, but... – I went for my first tattoo, and it looks amazing! It was really simple and I got exactly what I wanted. The artist wasn't rude but not overly-friendly or anything. Same with the staff in the front. Make sure to call for an appointment! I had an appointment and only had to wait a few minutes. I was in and out in less than 30 minutes, which was great! Only drawback was the "bandage" was a piece of cheap paper towel taped on with masking tape. I read a review before I went that stated this was the case, but I honestly figured it was a fluke of something. But apparently that's everyday business there. I was kind of embarrassed to go out with my friends after with this paper towel tapped to me. But that would be my only minor complaint. I just happy my tattoo looks good. That's what's matters.
awesome place good service. – Went to blue gorilla and set up an appointment, yes you have to set up an appointment ahead of time if you want service promptly, if you go in though without one they will still see you, it just takes time. My tattoo artist was named Chuck, very nice guy, very good artist. Chuck touched up an old tattoo I got from lucky sevens which lucky sevens messed up horribly, then added onto it. I was very pleased with his work I explained what I wanted and he drew it up for me then tattooed it on my arm with perfection, I recommend this establishment.
Will not return & I do not recommend. – Went to the Blu Gorilla while visiting Charleston. Got my first tattoo and I must say, its not good. The shading on it is horrible, and the outline and lettering not straight what-so-ever. The artist (who's name I can't remember) said he had been tattooing for 7 years, which must not be much because it just does NOT look good at all. I'm going somewhere else to have it corrected, and definitely will not go back there. I do not recommend this place. Sorry.
BluGorilla is the BEST !!! – Got my first "Charleston" tatoo yesterday from Tim @ BluGorilla.
Really appreciated the way he interpeted my ideas- the design
he drew while we were talking was EXACTLY what I wanted-must be able
to read minds. This is the best place in Charleston...........
I LOVE MY NEW TATTOO
Thanks Tim - I'll be back for more!!
Blu Gorilla is horrible! – I went to this "establishment" to get a very simple tattoo and was greeted by a gaggle of very rude and condescending "artists" that literally IGNORED me for over an hour! I announced myself when I arrived, and was told to wait in the waiting area as there were several others waiting before me...that was fine with me, until 2 very scantily clad girls walked in and IMMEDIATELY got attention! Not only that, but these girls brought in a child no more than 5 yrs old, when from what I understand the legal age of anyone allowed in a tattoo parlor is 18! Perhaps if I had worn tiny shorts and a tube top I would have been tended to sooner, however that is not my style, nor is it fair. People should be seen on a "first come, first serve" basis, not based on who is wearing the least amount of clothing. I left when I realized that NOBODY was going to help us out, drove to Holly's in Summerville and experienced the complete OPPOSITE of what we had endured at the Blu Gorilla. They were prompt, professional and kind...I would recommend them any day over the Blu Gorilla. They are horrible!!! Go to Holly's, they are more talented, the place is cleaner and the service is excellent!
Best place to get ink in Charleston!! – Blu Gorilla is the place you want to go of you want to get a tattoo in Charleston. I received my second tattoo ( got it on my foot) in July 08. The owner spoke with me on the phone and based on that call, I knew I wanted to go there! The staff is so friendly and so very helpful. They take their time with you and no matter how packed they get, they never rush their work. Ray did my foot and I am going back tomorrow to get another!! These guys ROCK!!!!
