Seth Yates has been in business since 1998 and he has become a true icon in San Diego. Seth grew up in Ocean Beach, which is a unique community. One might say that O.B. is sort of stuck in the past and trying to fight off the present. That is exactly how I would describe Seth's Chop Shop.

It??s like no place on Earth, a mind-blowing spectacle that will leave you wanting more. It??s one of the most unique concepts I??ve ever witnessed, I kid you not. Seth's wildest dream came to life and you??re just about to walk right into it.

I??m not sure if it was the endless parade of vintage toys or the crazy bikes hanging from the walls or the bizarre paintings of fast food characters or maybe it was the jet black Cadillac sofa, but there is something very familiar about this place. Seth's Chop Shop is a one of a kind hair salon and tattoo parlor.

Seth has been cutting hair for over 27 years, tattooing for about 9 years and in business for over 14 years. He has been running the place since day one and specializes in pin-up style hair dos and vintage tattoos. Seth's stylists have their own unique twist and touch to give you the look you've always wanted. Each tattoo artist not only has many years of experience in the art of tattooing, but they??re constantly pushing the envelope of your average looking tattoo to guarantee you a truly unparalleled look and style.

I have put up this review on as many sites as I can. Someone on yelp removed my review so I have been resubmitting it everywhere else.

Now, I know NYD isn't the best day for anyone especially someone who has to be at work, but c'mon. The artist I was assigned to was rude toward my friend who came with me and the lining was BAD BAD BAD.

I later had my tattoo fixed at 7 seas.

Pros: the shop was near to my home at the time

Cons: the line work was AWFUL, the guy was rude

I'm so excited Frankie is moving closer to me! This girl has the touch, trust me. She is the only person i let near my brows and only one who can get me to relax during the most remarkable facial. You will feel right at home the second you meet her, she is attentive and really listens to what you are trying to accomplish and will work with you to get there. Now she is in the fun, hip shop I have always loved.

Pros: The esthetician Frankie, and cool atmosphere

Cons: um... nope can't think of any

.

first impression was a very rude receptionist, who actually ended up being my stylist too. At the appointment she seemed to be a very no-frills or a get to the point type (i'm used to paying $100 for a haircut and getting an overly-attentive stylist/receptionist)

very casual, no-frills, funky atmosphere. Come as you are.

the cut was good for $45, she seemed to know how hairtypes react to different cuts, and recommended the right alterations for my hairtype, also checked in with me about the length as she cut it. I believe the website says $35 for a cut however. I think they charged me extra for styling and blowdry(?!) unless they jacked up their prices & never updated the site. I don't think the styling was worth $10.

Cash only btw, they don't take cards.

Pretty much the same quality of cut at a high priced salon, minus the free wine, muszak, and scalp massage.
