I went into Chameleon to have the jewelry changed in a facial piercing, and they were pretty good. The piercer was somewhat aghast that I could not change the jewelry myself, but did her job quickly and with ease. She only charged me for the cost of the jewelry, which was nice. I would recommend going there, but their tattoos are expensive. My very small star that I got years ago, was way more than it should have been.

The tattoo artists here are REALLY good. I've gotten A LOT of work done by Bob (who no longer works there) and John, and they are awesome. I've never gotten anything done by Reuben, but his work is TOTALLY amazing.\r

I got my first tattoo here about five years ago. I choose it simply because of it's location. I made an appointment and when I arrived the receptionist greeted me and introduced me to the artist. I showed him a bunch of pictures

I've gone to Chameleon twice for piercings. The first time was decent. I went on a busy Sat. night and had to wait 2 hrs. for an appt. and an additional half hour too. I understood they were busy so it wasn't a big deal.The piercer was

I have had 2 tattoos done before this, one is a cross that's almost six inches on my back that took over an hour. The cross cost me $145 at 13 Roses in Atlanta (amazing place). I went to Chameleon and wanted a small tattoo on my right hip,

Pros: Erin is Awsome!

Cons: tattooing there, not so much. i dont like the atmosphere, it feels like "getting tattooed in a mini mall" and there a little bit too expensive for what you get in return.

It's just too bad that, in order to have a tattoo done, you'd have to put up with some front desk girl who seems to believe that she's doing you a favor just by talking to you. This girl should simply be fired (I don't know her name, but

I agree with the clover woman... wonder if i had the same tattoo artist? although i was led to believe this man was an expert, he wanted to draw the tattoo the way HE wanted it, and was extremely uncooperative an difficult to deal with,

The people working at the front desk are short with you. They don't ask any questions and then give you a paper to sign. No hello, no overview of health standards, no question to make sure you are fit to get a tattoo--nothing!\r

I got a horrible tattoo that I desperately wanted fixed and John the artist was knowledgeable and underdstanding and fixed my tattoo perfectly. He also guaranteed his work forever which I think is wonderful. He had a tough tattoo to work

Seemed a little expensive, but on the same level as other tattoo artists in the area. Piercing rates are more realistic. Very popular and always very busy, make an apointment if you want something done. Also, they don't have the best
