I came here on a whim to get my piercing jewelry put back in after it fell out. Caryn took care of me and didn't charge, even though she's not the one who pierced me. She and another lady in the shop were very nice and chatted with me for about 20 minutes. We started talking about tattoos, they looked at the ones I had and I told them my plan for future pieces, and Caryn showed me the work on her arm that was done by Ariel, the owner of the shop. I made an appointment that day for them to draw my tattoo up.

When I came in for the tattoo, I was so impressed! Ariel is so charismatic and very funny, it was more like a total experience than just getting a tattoo. The music was calm and relaxing; he played Motown on the speakers for my tattoo, which was much better than the raucous rock music that I've experienced in other places. I didn't need a touch-up, but they asked me to come in two weeks anyway to check up on it, which I appreciated very much.

Dark Child has me as a customer for life. The employees there are both professional AND fun, and they made me feel like a friend the first day I walked in!

unprofessional, when i called a young kid answered the phone. i didnt like the vibe i felt at all. the place is always over crowded with peopple walking into the back and into the rooms while being tattooed. i beleve some shady business is going on back there, based on the questionable people coming in and out. i mostly delt with the girl in front, rather than the artist i really wanted. bad bussiness go somewhere else, like Lou's.

Business Response:

The artist that a client wants for their tattoo is not always available to come out and talk, and will never stop in the middle of a tattoo to do so. Therefore, a client often does not get to speak to their artist the same day they make the appointment. All preferences and design ideas are written down in detail and conveyed to the artist, who is then able to draw his or her tattoo the way that the client wants it to be. As for the comment of "shady" or "questionable" people in the tattoo studio, we do not turn away customers based on their appearance - we treat all of our clients with respect, especially since we are a minority-owned shop. If the race or appearance of certain clients bothers other customers, there is nothing to be done about that. Also, *nobody* is allowed in our tattoo rooms except the client themselves and one other parent, significant other, or friend is generally allowed to watch. Traffic going through the hallway, towards the bathroom, does NOT go through the private tattoo rooms themselves, in accordance with Suffolk County Board of Health Rules and Regulations.

Dark Child Tattoo is one of the best tattoo parlors on Long Island. I gave ari and Caryn an idea/drawing to work with and they created a beautiful peice of art! I am excited to go back for more! They are personable, talented, and make their clientele very comfortable and feel at home.

I have had many tattoos done by Ari and nobody compares!Give him an idea and he'll go with it.You will not get such fine lines and perfect detail anywhere else,especially some "franchise" places that hire anyone to just fill their seats.They will make you feel like family and put you at ease and answer any questions you have.As for Caryn,being around such a wonderful artist like Ari has certainly paid off!As her skills are certainly among the highest in my regard.

I must say the quality of work is absolutely amazing. This shop makes you feel like your part of their family. Besides cleanliness & comfort: its genuine TRUE TALENT & artistry. If you want an original, custom work that fits YOU and your style, this is the place. I gave Ari a big challenge: to "fix" (cover-up) a half-way finished, half-ass totally ugly tat started from one of LI's "world famous". I'm extremity happy I found *Dark Child Tattoo*, its the only shop I'll ever recommend! For real, thank you for giving me something I'm proud to SHOW the world!

Everywhere I go people will go out of their way to stop me in my tracks and ask to see my artwork. Dark child tattoo is not only a world class tattoo shop because of their cleanliness and professionalism, but also because of the creativity and dedication to the artwork they put on their customers. I have never heard a complaint about the services from anyone who has gone to dark child tattoo. I wear my artwork proud and can't wait to add more from Ariel and the rest of the crew at dark child. I will be a lifetime customer there for certain.

There's something about walking into a place unsure of what you're going to expect, only to end up feeling as if you've known the people for years. I went into Dark Child for my first tattoo last year, and have gone back for two additional tattoos and a couple of touchups since then. Caryn and Ariel know what they're doing, and it's evident from the way they treat you and the way they go about their work. The shop is impeccably-sterile and relaxed, and I will forever be a loyal customer of DCT. I don't know much about pricing for the tiny tattoo shops that litter NYC, but my tattoos have been a bargain considering the quality of the work. Thank you for treating me as a friend instead of just another person with a wallet. As a matter of fact, I'm going back soon for more ink!

Dark Child Tattoo is unlike any tattoo parlor I have ever entered. The artwork is vividly bright and detailed. The artists are professionally expierenced and exceptional in the work that they accomplish. I would totally recomend this tattoo parlor to everyone! The art work and artists are 10,000 times better than any of the other characterless local tattoo parlors.

I am a repeat customer (approximately 9 times) is DCT. Not only is the service phenomenal, everyone is friendly and knowledgable about tattooing, piercing, removal, and healing processes. I have recommended family and friends for both piercings and tattoos, and they have all enjoyed their experience as well as their results. Additionally, I have had cover up work done which came out beautifully. Caryn is an amazing artist and piercer, an Ariel is hands down one of the best, if not the best artist in the greater trustees area. I have traveled back to NY from PA for his work, and continue to go to DCT exclusively despite the 1.5 hr drive fromy current residence. It would be a disservice to get work done elsewhere when you have an opportunity to go to DCT where you cam get wonderful work and service done every time.

Mediocre tattoos, I've been to many tattoo shops on the island and I wasn't impressed with this one. Most of the places I've been to would do small touch ups and other little things for little to no charge, yet Dark Child charges around 50 dollars for a finger tattoo that's the size of a grain of rice? Not okay, especially if they just dole out free touch ups to their friends as I'm seeing below. That's not good business.

This place is definitely "World Class." I dunno what Alex M. is talking about but I'm a repeat tattoo customer, I've been done by 2 of the 3 or so ppl there and I've NEVER been overbooked...my appointments are always just for me and I even walked in one night on a whim and I got tattooed by the girl Caryn righ away.

Well let me just say that Caryn and Ariel are really good at what they do, and this is the first shop Ive been to where they actually care about me the customer and they even asked me to come back to see how it healed. I had a little spot that had some color missing where I scabbed and they touched it up for free. FREE....other places ive been don't care, I won't mention them here but they told me basically to deal with it if I didn't heal my tattoo right.

All the tattoos I got from this shop look AMAZING so I give them 5 stars, also for caring and treating me like a human being. I like the shop and I actually like the people there, and thats really important to me!

100% Unprofessional. They will completely overbook your appointment without even being decent enough to let you know. I experienced this first hand with them, as well as a friend of mine.
There tattoos are mediocre, theres better places on Long Island to go.

I've had 3 tattoos and a piercing done by the artists of DarkChild tattoos and they have been amazing. The place is very sterile and the artists are very professional. For my 1st piece i brought an image and they modified it for my body perfectly. Super sterile place, i saw every single item used either repeatedly cleaned or pulled out of new packaging. I love the work i have and will keep coming back.

This place is great. My girlfriend had a piercing done and they were very sanitary and clean with everything, thanks to Caryn Padilla, very great work. They're establishment is very sanitary and they're very careful with everything they do. She also had two different tattoos done and she is very happy and content with it, very clean and organized with everything. I would recommend this place to everyone. They're work is nothing less than spectacular. If your looking for phenomenal work done on your skin, Dark Child Tattoo is the place.

What defines an artist? The literary definition of it is a person whose work exhibits exceptional skill. At Dark Child Tattoo not only do they exhibit it, the exemplify it to the highest extent. The tattoos are not only traces of ink into skin it expresses a person inner being and personality. The artworks in Dark Child are so profound that its like having a masterpiece of Van Gogh or Michaelangelo on a part your body. Its a great family atmosphere with an exceptional staff. When anybody enters Dark Child Tattoo its not only a session and its an experience like no other. I highly recommend this place to anyone interested in tattoos or great artwork in general.
Dark Child Tattoo you guys definitely have the crown for Tattooing in the Tri-State Area.

Dark Child Tattoo is very different as far as tattoo studios go. Most studios just want your money and could care less about the quality and personal aspect of your tattoo. Dark Child is the exact opposite, in that once a certain level of loyalty is reached, the artists become more than just artists. They become friends. This is on top of the incredible work that Dark Child Tattoo inks. I have two sleeves to attest to that. I would recommend Dark Child Tattoo to someone who is nervous about getting their first to someone who has 15 tats already. I highly highly recommend Dark Child Tattoo.

An acquaintance of mine turned me on to this place but I did not get the right vibe when I checked it out. The artists in there were very pushy, because I was taking my time deciding on which new design I was going to get which is a shame because they looked like they were very talented. After being constantly pushed around to get a tattoo already I left the store.
