Arrogant! Pass up this shop unless you wish to be treated like dirt! They will not return phone calls. Find another shop.
Cant get better than this – I've gotten 5 plus tatoo's at acme and am going back for another with one in the works. Nolan is a tremendous artist. It's a relax shop and comfortable. My tatoo's are being done by Nolan and I couldnt be more pleased, I explained what I wanted, was asked about the colors scheme and then I approved the drawings before any work was done.I listened to their suggestions which have been right on. They consider the tatoos they do as art and that's what they accomplish. I get compliments on my tatoo's everywhere I go. They give excellant instructions on the care of the tatoos both during the healing process and future care to keep them as perfect as the day they were done. They do not take short cuts and are sticklers on a clean shop. I always know what my tatoo's are going to cost. I have always been treated with respect and I get exactly what I want.The first tatoo I got about 10 years ago is just as colorful and bright as the day I got it.
There are better shops! – I received my first tattoo from Tannika, she was much more interested in talking with another customer who was there hanging around the entire time I was getting my tattoo. I was also quoted a price which I ended up paying more for my tattoo because it took her longer to complete, could be due to her having a conversation with the other so-called customer? I have now four additional tattoos...none done by Acme. I have found a much better place to get my tats. Also, once I've been quoted a price my new artist honors that quote.
Fabulous Shop – I went to Acme for my second tattoo and the staff welcomed me immediately and took my business seriously and in a friendly manor.
I pitched my design ideas to the staff and Tanika was great helping me hammer out the details of the exact design I wanted using my examples and samples in the shop.
Beth ended up being the artist to actually draw out and do my tattoo. She was not only a perfectionist [I didn't need a single touch up] but she took into consideration the spot where my tattoo was going. She showed me with the template that by tweaking the position a bit the image wouldn't get distorted when I bent, twisted, or slouched.
I'm incredibly satisfied with my tattoo and the service I received from this incredibly friendly and experienced shop. I will definitely be heading back for my third tattoo.
To Gabe. – This shop is great. Gabe has always been so nice to me and my family. I should bring in some baked goods or somethin'. The only name I will ever have tattooed to me is yours Gabe. Thanks for fixing the bad work that was done on me. Once Gabe let me pop in some of my own tunes to listen to while I was getting work done. I felt right at home.
Acme Tattoo...AWESOME! – Acme Tattoo is amazing. I have gotten 2 tattoos there and they look so good. All of the artists are excellent but I see Beth. She can draw up anything you want.
As far as the deposit, they tell you up front that it's non-refundable. BUT it goes toward the price of your tattoo when you get it done. If you don't want to have the work done, don't put a deposit down. That's only for when you're sure.
I actually changed which design I wanted but didn't lose my deposit. It goes toward any work they do. If you want a tattoo that will look good and last, Acme is the place to go!!
Horriable Service – I can't remember the artist name, but that is not the issue. I was not happy with the design made it was not what I asked for, I tried to explain what I wanted and they made me feel like I was wrong. They were VERY arrigant and acted like they didn't have time for me. I didn't end up getting the tattoo and they kept my deposit.
Great artists – I got my first tattoo for my 30th birthday and Beth did a fantastic job. I brought in a picture from the internet, she drew it up, I approved it and she tattooed me. It was a great experience for a first timer and I love my tattoo.
