One of THE BEST Classic Tattoo Shops around – GR27 should be grateful she found an artist like Chris, little girls shouldn't get Tattoo's if they think it's like a nail salon with girl talk. Maybe you should stop watching Miami Ink, that's not what a real shop is like, these guys are pure professionals, if you say anything different your nuts! Maybe you don't belong is a shop then, Tattoo's aren't for everyone but people sure seem to think so.
depends on who you get... – i never wrote a review about my time here, but i thought i should. i had a tattoo done here for two reasons: my brother had gone here for all 5 of his tat's, and sid is my pastor's grandson-in-law. so i obviously trusted my brother's opinion. i had an appointment with chris, and when i came in with my brother, he was ready for me... and i showed him my tat sketch and he had me pick out the font for the writing while he resketched my design... once i was ready, he had me sit down and started prepping my arm. i noticed he wasn't in the best mood, but i was really excited about getting my very first tattoo... my brother chatted it up with all the guys... and they were all friendly enough. but chris must of had a bad day b/c he wasn't very nice, hardly talked or looked at me, and seemed like he could care less about my tattoo. he did it exactly the way i drew it, but he just seemed like he'd rather be doing something or anything else. so i personally didn't appreciate his aloof personality; even if he did have a bad day or whatever, he should take it out, or involve, his clients... its unprofessional. but i am completely happy with my tattoo, and i get compliments constantly - even 3 years later. and the color is still pretty and very vibrant! so i'm happy with the outcome, but they need a little education on manners and customer service. my brother had sid for most of his tat's and he loved sid... thought he was great... so, maybe if i ever go back, i'll have sid do mine.
Best place to get ink in OC!!! – Been there multiple times and have been tattooed by Sid, Chris & Rob. Very professional and no problems whatsoever!!!!
This is the worst tattoo place EVER! – I went to get a tattoo at Sid's but they were busy, so I layed down a $40 deposit and made an appointment for 2 weeks later. The tattoo guy ROB, asked what tattoo I wanted and when I told him, I got a snicker from him and the rest of his "followers". (He has several young guys that hang around the parlor trying to become artists, but they do nothing but take up space.) I guess my tattoo idea wasnt original enough for them.
Anyway, I come back two weeks later and have a seat because Rob wasnt finished doing someone elses tattoo yet.... I waited, and I waited... an hour and half went by past my appointment time and Rob asks "Do you have an appointment?" I said "Yes, it was for an hour and a half ago." Then he says "I didnt know, I didnt make the appointment." I said "Actually yes you did. You even took a deposit." He dang well did make the appointment and even if he didnt, he should check his appointment book. If he didnt know I had an appointment then why did it take him an hour and 30 minutes to ask what I needed. The guys rude and he's completely lazy. He reluctantly stars setting up to do my tattoo and he kind of changes it a lot. I didnt like it, so I asked him to modify it to my liking. I guess this was a problem for him. Its gonna be on me forever and I wanted it done MY way, not ROB's way. So as he's about to touch my skin with the needle. I ask "How much will it cost?" He says..."Um $150" I said "WHAT?!! Its a little bumble bee!" So he says "But its really detailed"...then he asks "How much did you want to pay?" I said "No more than $100" and he goes... "I cant do that"...He didnt want to do it to begin with. So I say "I could go down the street and get it done for less" Then he says "Yeah but the place down the street isnt as good as me." Which is complete BS... so I left. Imagine waiting 90 minutes past your appointment time, getting no appology and then being over charged. I hate Rob and I will never go to Sids again! Fat lazy ROB!
