I am blown away by the sincerity and professionalism of Blue Star staff. Not only is the staff knowledgeable about their craft, but they care about the execution and placement of each piercing which I can appreciate. Their perfectionist which is a great quality in Blue Star Tattoos, in hopes of achieving the most aesthically pleasing result. I also feel that they care about each and every one of their guests. I got both my ear and my nipples pierced at Blue Star Tattoos and enjoyed both experiences. They have a vast high end jewelry selection the best in the bay and have the resources available to order custom pieces in the event you are picky like me and can't find what you want. I plan on getting my ear stretched in the future and look forward to the hospitality and customer service that Blue Star Tattoos crew provides.
Before I got my piercing I looked up reviews online to see how this plave was... all of the reviews said that the guys darrin was really nice and that it was super clean... I know that a lot of reviews only say the nice stuff but it was actually really true... I got my nose pierced and I was really nervous at first but darrin is so nice.. He calmed me down, made me laugh and it all went really well. If I get any more piercings I will definitely go back and I recommend it to anyone.
Blue star is truely a one of a kind parlor. I have many friends in this business, and I have yet to see such a kind atmosphere in a tattoo and piercing parlor that Blue Star has. The tattoo artists go above and beyond what is expected of them to ensure their customers will LOVE their work for many years to come. I know this personally, and I can honestly say that I would never get a tattoo from any shop other than Blue Star. The quality of their work is excellent, many people have mistaken a piece of work that is two years old for being a couple months old based on it's color. I have four tattoos from Blue Star, all done by Nixx. All of them have healed without incident, no infections, no irritations, and actually were done healing in about a week and a half. All of my piercings were done by Neff, he even corrected one that was pierced wrong by someone else. The shop is extremely clean as well, they actually remodeled a bit from when I first started going there. They keep everything in great shape there, and have displays set up throughout the tattoo room for those who aren't looking to design their own tattoos as well - you can customize those designs to however you want them though.
These guys know their stuff, they will make you feel welcome, no matter if this is your first tattoo/piercing or your 40th, they are great people and always have a way to make you enjoy yourself. And, if money is an issue with you, Blue Star Tattoos is a reliable AND affordable place to go. However, tattoos are a little pricey when you get up into the 2-3 hour range, keep in mind that no tattoo is free and the bigger you go, the more you'll pay. =) And another thing, don't ask them if it hurts, the motto of this shop is "hell yeah, it hurts!" - it is plastered on pens and signs throughout the shop, I even think they have it on the door.
