Inkers Tattoo Co. is THE ONLY tattoo shop in the college area that I Ever go to for tattoos and piercings. The shop is clean and just has a good homely vibe to it. The employees are super cool and easy going, unlike other shops Ive been to where nobody even bothers to approach me-complete silence, therefore causing me to turn & walk right back out the door. Inkers has a variety of skilled artists who take on any tattoo without any hesitation. The piercer is a cool dude, laid back, but professional. Ive had my nose on both sides done by him with no problems as well as my eyebrow. Otto does all of my ink and I am more than thrilled with everything hes done. All around, Inkers Tattoo is awesome and I don't plan on going anywhere else for my tattoos or piercings.

This used to be the best tattoo shop in all SD back when Hammer was here... its been sold to some guy that shades tattoos like a 3 year old does a color book. I went in for a Tragus piercing and was met by some goof ball named Tigger (WTF??) that had sthe crappiest tattoos I have ever seen. Just like Reggies review says-- this dude has a tattoo of what appears to be bird crap running down his face. I overlooked this and went ahead with my piercing and the first thing that rolled my stomache was this dudes BREATH.. oh my god! Then his body odor mixed in with the sickening smell and I almost threw up right there on the spot. Any one smells like that and has that bad of hygiene isnt coming anywhere near me with a needle. The shop was filthy. The owner Otto had just finished a tattoo of what appeared to be a koi that was shaded pink and red and looked like a huge phallic symbol. The customer was obviously pissed cause they were talking about how much refund she should get back. STAY FAR AWAY FROM THIS PLACE or you will be a proud member of the WORLDS WORST TATTOO AND PIERCING list!! Not soo bad.. you could end up on tv, a talk show, the news.. with all of America laughing at you for the retarded piercing and or horribly FUC*** UP tattoo work you actually PAID MONEY TO GET!! This place should be shut down. On the serious side.. if you did let this place tattoo or pierce you GO GET CHECKED. Just the fact that the piercer smelled like he hadnt showered in over 2 week should tell you something... yuck!

I went here to get a very simple piercing, a stud in my nose.I asked if they did piercings,a guy named 'Pegger' said yes. Apparently they don't do piercings, because when it became embedded in my flesh, he said "well we haven't had a piercer in about a year, I'm a tattoo artist"... Then don't stick a f** needle in my face!!. I bled a lot, he claimed I might be diabetic??? What does that mean? He also claimed it didn't work because my nose was too fat and that maybe I just didn't have luck with piercings?? Fat girls get piercings all the time dude, it shouldn't be a problem.
He also claimed that this has never happened before, which apparently it has because there is a yelp review that sounds EXACTLY like my experience.
I asked him to put a longer stud in, and he said they didn't carry it and it was the owner's fault (whose name he refused to give me) who just "refuses to come to the shop and is never on time for his appointments and never orders jewelry".... yeah f** right. Maybe if you didn't suck ass at your job you wouldn't be to much of a pussy to mention your bosses name. BTW this guy had a poorly done nautical star tattoo on his face, if he can't stick a needle straight I wouldn't be surprised if he wasn't heavy handed while tattooing!!!
DO NOT GO HERE. THERE ARE TONS OF OTHER PLACES THAT HAVE PIERCERS THAT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING!!!!!!
