Great Experience – I recently had a old cross that needed additional attention and it took me a long time to research the right person to improve my old tattoo. I met with Goolsby on several different sessions, I like that he took his time making sure every peice looked great. Then I had to let my skin heal for the next sessions. Most tattoo artists that I had previously encountered wanted to get my tat done quickly, and they weren't always straight. Aaron took his time and did a great job on the end product. I love it.
Great place for a tattoo – Aaron Goolsby is working on my new tattoo. We are in the process of getting a nasty scar covered up. Aaron is a super nice guy,great personality and best of all a GREAT artist. I will be back to get more tattoos with Aaron Highly recomended :)
Best Tattoo Experience I Have Ever Had!!! – I recently began a cover up piece with Aaron Goolsby and it was an awesome experience. He is an amazingly talented artist with a great personality. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the shop and can't wait to go back!
Aaron Goolsby Rocks! – I went to Aaron Goolsby last November to fix a tattoo I wasnt happy with. The color was dull and there wasnt much shading detail, but after Goolsby worked on the angel wings on my back I was much happier! I received compliments before but even more now. (I was stopped in sephora last week by a guy who said my wings were the first hes seen that werent kinda boring.)I went back to Goolsby for a Fleur De Lis tattoo on my wrist and got more then i expected. The detail is amazing and its obviously the work of a true artist. My friend watching me get the tattoo was even surprised of all the shading and highlights. She told me "when I saw him pulling out more colors i was wondering what he was doing but it looks amazing." It is well worth the money to go to an artist I know is going to give me great results then take a chance on someone risky. Aaron Goolsby is an amazing artist as well as a real professional. Ill be back for the next one!Thank you!
Aaron Goolsby rocks! – Aaron Goolsby did a stunningly beautiful, truly professional tattoo on my back. He was able to cover up an old, lame tattoo (by someone downtown) and make it disappear. Placement on the body makes a difference, and this tattoo is really flattering. I love the hyper details, shading, and color. Our consult was cool because he is an artist - he patiently explained lots of styles and what would work best. Goolsby (he said he goes by his last name) drew up everything so I would have an exact, custom design of what I wanted. The day of my tattoo I was a bit nervous because I'm a germ freak and hadn't been tattooed in years, but he was totally sanitary and it didn't hurt anywhere near as bad as the other tats I have. I'm so happy with the tattoo, I highly recommend Aaron Goolsby.
Best Piercing Experience Ever! – I wanted to get my bellybutton pierced so I called around to different places in the DFW area. When I called here, whoever picked up the phone was incredibly nice, and very patient when I asked him a multitude of questions, which included: Do you pierce minors? What do i need to bring with me? Does it hurt? He answered yes, they pierce minors, all I needed to bring was a parent, my ID and her/his ID (with our last names matching) and a copy of my birth certificate, and that most of the people that he pierced came to the consensus that it didn't hurt nearly as bad as they had imagined. When I pulled up to the shop I was very pleasantly surprised to find that it was completely sterile, and the people were just as friendly as they had been on the phone. The guy who pierced my bellybutton (Chris) was easygoing and nice, yet completely professional, and there was hardly a wait at all to get down to business! He marked my bellybutton and made sure it was lined up properly and that I liked the position it was at, and pierced it. The whole piercing process (from needle to screwing on the ball) took 15 seconds or less, much faster than I had expected! I was extremely happy with the entire ordeal, and did not run into any problems at all. He explained the after-care process in depth and made sure that I knew how to clean my piercing properly. Overall, I am immensely happy with the results, and could not have had a better experience anywhere else!! I have already recommended Cat Tattoo Company and Chris to several of my friends who are looking to get piercings, and am sure that they'll be visiting soon!
THE OWNER IS A LIAR AND A FRAUD! – DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE! I went in on 4/25/08, spoke to Terry Mayo, gave him my photos/reference material. He told me it would be a $100 deposit just for him to draw it up (that $100 paid for his time, supposedly) and that it would be 3-4 months at the most for him to get it drawn up. August rolled around, nothing. No drawing, no e-mail or call from him. I did try to keep in contact with him and he had the audacity to tell me that he did send me a drawing. I checked both my e-mail addresses and nothing. So basically this guy, the OWNER of the shop straight up lied to me...Also he told me it would be about $1000 for a piece on my back that only took up a quarter of my back. And I'm a petite person. So, now we're in November and still no drawing. No response to my e-mails and no phone call. I hope this place goes under...
AVOID AT ALL COSTS. – Went to get my tongue and navel pierced with their 2 for $40 deal thing. I made sure to call in beforehand seeing as I'm only 16, and was told I had to bring in my birth certificate and my mom, nothing else was acceptable. no birth certificate, no piercing (she was really rude on the phone) okaaay fine...my dad went SOO out of his way to go to our storage facility 30 minutes away to get it. finally evening rolls around and we head over there, money and birth certificate in hand, THEY NEVER EVEN ASKED FOR THE DAMN BIRTH CERTIFICATE. Then when I went back there, the guy (matt) didn't even give me an opportunity to check the placement on my tongue or stomach. His hands smelled really bad of cigarettes, he was out of the (free) normal navel barbells and I had to pay extra for a lame sparkly one. he paused for more then a few seconds on both of the piercings making it hurt soo much worse, not to mention he had me laying down for my tongue piercing and I almost choked from salivating and bleeding so much with it all rolling down my throat. The only aftercare tips he gave me were (for tongue) "no oral, no making out, and if yer gonna drink, no beer stick to hard liquor" (for navel) "clean it like you would any other piercing" he also never specified if I can go back there and get my long tongue barbell switched out for free or not. I won't even bother to call and ask I'm going somewhere else...
so its Thursday now, my tongue and navel are way more sore then they ought to be, my navel is bright red and just doesn't feel right, I think he took too much skin in the clamp and now its like really tight, hard to explain...
Ugh it was just horrible. I really wish I had gone somewhere else =(
bad piercings. – I got my belly button pierced here a couple of years ago, and that went alright, so i went in about a month ago to get my daith pierced but apparently my ear wasn't shaped for that type of piercing. I decided to get my cartilage pierced instead. the person doing it was rude, trying to convince me another piercing would be cuter, and that everyone had it and that i had to be original. i was like, "sir, it's my piercing and i know what i want." the piercing was made more complicated than it had to be, the person piercing it was mean, his hands smelled like cigarettes, the wait was ridiculous, all of the employees were rude. To top things off, my piercing got infected because i wasn't given suggestions as to how to take care of it or what to/not to use to clean it. I had to take it out a week ago. My friend went in there to get a price estimation and they thought they were the most awesome, amazing artists. so snobby and not nice at all, nor friendly.
If you're looking for good service, I wouldn't suggest this place.
Lame! – I went in to get a price quote and the artist was like "uh, I can't do that. Nah, and walked off" They were rude on the phone and in the shop, not to mention the shop didn't look very clean. I definitely don't recommend it. Try Skin Art Gallery about a block away, they are great =)
