1st things 1st..
We tried another place and felt like the staff looked at us and thought you don t have enough tattoos or not young enough to be here . Not at South Side!! For those who are older (I am 39) and not tatted all over, South Side made my wife feel welcomed last year when she got her 1st tattoo and when I got my second today (1st one 10 years ago in TN), made me feel at ease and not out of place.

Drove down from Somerset due to recommendations...Troy (the owner) did a great job with my wife s tattoo and made her feel at ease..joking around with her throughout the inking.

I wanted Troy to do mine, but Justin ended up doing it as Troy wasn t available. Spoke with him, showed him what I wanted and around what price, he came back with a great design, but even made the tattoo look better at the price I needed. I love the results of what Justin did. Excellent artist.

Place was clean. All the guys there treated us great. Definitely will recommend them and go back to them for add-ons and any other tattoos that I ever get as lorng as I am in NJ; same for my wife.

Mike pierced my daughter's tragus and mine as well. I felt very comfortable in this shop. Mike is clearly an expert with piercings, and he was thorough with cleaning instructions and what we should expect during the healing process.

P.S. His political views prove him to be very intelligent as well!

I've been told this place was the best little parlor to go to.. how much is it to get your belly button pierced here?

I have been to Southside Tattoo for 3 tattoos and 2 piercings. They are very good at everything they do there! Now they might make some innuendos but it's a tattoo shop, honestly what do you expect? It's all in good fun and games. FYI they "big guy" you are all talking about is the Owner! He's a great guy. Does great tattoo work as well. I had him do right above my left but cheek and I did not feel uncomfortable at all. I told him if he took a peak at my ass I wanted $10 off! Have a personality people! I have been going there for the past 4 years, and before that my best friend has been going there for the past 10 years. All of our tattoos are NOT faded. I have a question for the Lady who's tattoo is 3 years old and faded, do you lay in the sun/tanning, if so do you put sunblock on it? I bet you dont! My first one is 4 years old, I tan every day in the summer and I have not lost any color! I would highly recommend getting tattooed there or pierced! Honestly I wont go anywhere else! And the young guys' name is Ian, he did my last tattoo, and let me tell you, it's vibrant and beautiful! He did great!

I got my tongue pierced here, Chris is AMAZING. He is professional, clean, friendly, and inexpensive. All the things you want when you're getting a piercing. Chris is professional, is well versed in what he does and will explain thoroughly to you not only how to take care of your piercing, but about the piercing in general so you're aware of what's going on. His equipment is clean: everything is new and comes out of sealed bags, he wears gloves, and the area is kept clean. He is very friendly and puts you at ease with the procedure. I was shaking scared before he got there, and after talking to him I was so calm I wasn't even nervous. The piercing was quick and efficient, has hardly swollen, looks BEAUTIFUL and I feel very lucky that such a nice, qualified man took care of it. BOTTOM LINE: Go to Chris at South Side in Howell, NJ and you will be thankful you did.

i have been going to southside for both tattoos and piercings. i have never been in such an immaculate shop. its clean, and you can see where they sterelize all the needles and piercing tools. chris is the best piercer in the tri-state are. the tattoo guys are so talented that its mind blowing. and to all those that say the men, especially the big guy, are rediculous over sensitive. the shop has a positive feeling when you walk in. all the guys make me feel comfortable and welcome. so that leaves me with one final thing to say; this is a tattoo shop, not a day care. it is an adult atmosphere, therefore jokes will be made, comments will be said. if you cant handle this and decide to call the artists creepy, dont go there. i dont want some close minded over sensitive person misread a situation and then ruin it for the true patrons of south street tattoos.

unlike the other women, i loved southside. it was my first time getting a tattoo and my tattoo guy ian was very friendly and couldn't be more helpful. chris is awesome as well and was so nice getting everything set up for me. they all joke around and like to hit on the girls, but its nothing serious, they are really cool guys and i am definitely going back for my second tattoo in october. the prices were'nt that bad and my tattoo came out great so if you're looking for a place to go i'd say definitely go for southside :)

I got my first tattoo there a few years back and just like the other women, I was VERY scheved out by the guys. They made sexual comments as I was being tattooed and I didnt feel safe at all. My tattoo also is very faded and I only got it 3 years ago. They are very cheap but you pay a price for going there-comments, innuendos and work that really doesnt last.

I agree with the woman who received the tattoo on her backside about being alittle creeped out.. I love the piercer there, but every time that I have been there, and Ive been there alot, The one artist has made some pretty risque comments to me. And whenever I am there getting pierced or waiting I def watch my back, because the big guy does this weird kind of tickle, poke thing if you have your back turned. I would highly recommend this place for piercings, but dont think I would ever get tattooed there.

Absolutely horrible experience. I received a tattoo from there a few months ago by a young guy (I forget his name, sorry) and although the tattoo wasn't bad, I was extreemly skeeved out by one of their employees. I was getting a tattoo done on my butt, and obviously had to have my slacks around my ankles, now they did put me in a room that was closed off from public view, wich at first I felt very comfortable. But about half way through the tattoo I heard one of the other artists there say "your lucky he's tattooing you, because I wouldn't get any work done staring at that ass" Now I thought we were in a private room, but apparently this guy was staring at me through the door the whole time.I was very, very creeped out after that. I have since had my tattoo redone at Broken Heart in Keyport, NJ and was very satisfied with their proffesionalism, and privacy. SouthSide was clean, but got a very creepy vibe from the bigger guy, and would not recommend if you are a fellow female.

2/22/10 Chris the piercer is very professional. The place is small, clean and friendly. He spends enuf time explaining and helping to chose the right placement and jewelry. Even changes jewelry and helps with healing for free. Highly recommended!!! Both my daughter and myself have been pierced and will be back for more. Tastfully done!!

The piercer is awesome, but they overcharge for tattoos and I bought a giftcard there and they taxed it because he said I was paying for a service. Actually, I'm not, I'm paying for a piece of paper. Gay!

Very nice small little tattoo and piercing parlor. Ive gotten 3 different piercings there by Mike, who did a great job, but he recently just left. I've had all 3 of my tattoos there by different artists who are no longer there but was very pleased. As long as you have a good artist you'll be set.
