Skin Art Gallery and Trent are the best! – First off, the shop itself is always kept up extremely well, clean, and located in a great location. I always get my tattoos by Trent but the rest of the guys are always super attentive to other customers, nice, and best of all, they do some epic tattoos (and piercings).
I have gotten something like 10 tattoos from Trent in this shop and every one keeps blowing my mind. He is such a hard worker that it is impossible not be impressed with the commitment and care he puts into every tattoo. Trent has a great skill to pay attention to detail that is extremely important in a tattoo artist.
Its a great shop with a great crew so you'll be missing out if you dont swing by!
Trent is an amazing artist! – I decided to get a cross tattooed on my wrist for my 40th birthday. I walked into Skin Art gallery after reading numerous rave reviews and met Trent. I told him what I was looking for and set an appointment.
When I arrived for my appointment, he had the design ready to go. He made a few recommendations for placement and we were off!
Trent did an amzing job. It is absolutely beautiful! I had it pictured in my head for months and it looks so much better than I pictured. He was very gentle (I have read about tattoo artists that seems to have a "heavy hand"), and the pain was minimal.
I will recommend him to anyone that is looking to get a tattoo. The Skin Art Gallery itself is very nice and clean. That was very important to me. I met several other peolpe that work there while I was in and they were all very nice and professional.
If you are looking for some great art, then The Skin Art Gallery is the place to go! I know I will be back!
Adam was great! – I went in on a Sunday around 8:00 PM and they were able to get me in within 5 mins. Adam greeted me and he was as sweet as sugar. He is such a nice person and his work is amazing. I got a symbol tattooed on my hip and he even took the time to make sure the symbol matched the meaning for me again(great service). He was very fast and the work was amazing. He provided me with his personal cell number for any questions that I may have, which I did and he texted me back ASAP. SEE ADAM!
See Ruby for great piercings – I saw Ruby for a couple new piercings and it was a good expierience!
Ruby did a dermal anchor for me and she pierced my lip a week later, she was so sweet and professional through it all. My cousin and a good friend has been pierced by her as well, we are a pretty bunch..
Now two weeks old, my piercings are healing well and look terrific, I couldn't be happier!
Kayden is amazing!! – I've gone to Kayden for my tattoos for a long time. He is very good with Black and Grey and he is my choice when im looking for good realism and detail. He's also very fair priced.
I would recomend him to anyone looking for good tattoo work. He wont settle for anything less.
Kayden does a great job – I got a tattoo from Kayden in March of '09- I had an idea and he was able to flesh it out and sketch the design for me. I was very happy with it . It was tat #7 and not as uncomfortable as some I've gotten. He did a great job. He is not heavy-handed and he stayed past closing time to get it finished. The shop is clean, the prices are fair and the staff are friendly- I am planning on going back to get more work done.
avoid being pierced by Ruby – I came to Skin Art Gallery to pierce my left nostril. I told Ruby I preferred to use a white gold piercing (that I provided) because it was small and discreet. She agreed, sterilized it, shaped it, and pierced my nose.
For the next 6 days, my nose was very painful, bright red, and my skin kept growing over the piercing (which made me have to keep pushing it back thru). I called and spoke with Toy, the shop manager and head piercer. Once I explained my issue, he said "Ruby should never have pierced you with white gold since it's a porus metal which makes it easy for bacteria to grow!" He went on to say "any amateur knows not to pierce with white gold and Ruby should know better."
He instructed me to come in as soon as I could. He couldn't believe what my nose looked like (red, inflamed, skin growing over, pus) and confirmed that yes, it was infected. He apologized for Ruby's bad judgment and Ruby bent it way too short which did not allow for swelling and thus why my skin kept growing over it.
I was crying, in pain, and explained to him that after such an ordeal, I did not want it to be pierced again (even after he healed). He agreed that I never should have gone thru this and offered to give me my money back as a gesture of good will. I was very grateful.
Well, after several phone calls, complaints to the owner, and 2 wasted trips to pick up money that wasn't left for me (after I was told it was), I never have received my refund. I was given a most disappointing "run-around."
Upon researching the state guidelines of tattoo/piercing shops, I've since learned that Skin Art Gallery has violated some rules. Ruby, my piercer, did no paperwork or checked my ID prior to her piercing me. Also, Skin Art was required to report my nostril infection to the State Dept of Health, which to my knowledge was never done.
very happy with my experience – I dropped in the other day to get a new tattoo. I did not have an appointment, but I was in a chair getting worked on within an hour (granted, it was a Thursday afternoon). My tattoo artist was Adam. He was nice enough to work me into his schedule without an appointment and he gave me the advice that I asked for regarding the tattoo. Admittedly, I don't get all that nervous about getting a new tattoo, but that doesn't mean that I don't prefer to have a friendly and pleasant person working on me to make the experience itself (not just the tattoo) a good one. We had a nice conversation and he was finished much sooner than I expected. He did a great job, I've had nothing but compliments on the tattoo. It's healing perfectly, no problems there. I will definately be going back to him for work in the future.
Great Piercing..!!! – I had been wanting to get my nipple pierced for a really long time and so i went here to get it done.
I was soooooo nervous and they made me feel so comfortable, they did it really fast so it barely hurt and the guy that did the piercing was wonderful!!!! Thank y'all so much
great place to go – This was my first tatoo, and after having a bad experience at the first salon I went to I was a little iffy about attempting a second. I only had an inkling of what I wanted but this place really put it together. I brought in a picture, described what I didnt like about it and within 10 minutes Trent had drawn something so unique and creative I knew it was what I wanted. He even helped me with how it should look with size and placement to make it look better. Everyone was super nice, it didnt hurt nearly as bad as I thought it would and now I have something that means something to me and that noone else has. I definately recommend this place as these people really know what they are doing and will take care of you.
