I got my piercings a year ago by the male piercer that was there. He took a lot of time making sure that the piercings were at the proper angle and flattering, and the technique was flawless. Also, he was absolutely ok with the fact that there were two of us getting pierced and another 4 people in the room with us cheering us on and watching. When I had problems with the length of my barbells 6 months later he made sure that we found the more appropriate length for how the piercings were healing and still to this day answers questions and concerns I have. I'm glad I went there.

The shop is lacking when compared to other head shops. They are way over priced compared to other shops around. The tattoo part is good but over the 20 years I've been aware of this place , I've noticed high turnover in piercers lately. The woman piercer, Lisa is known to be very unfriendly and she isn't experienced enough for me to ever go to her based on word of mouth from others and the fact that she has very little experience. If you go there, just ask for the male piecer....As for the head shop section, WAY overpriced, don't waste your time and money. I know a lot of people in the head shop, tattoo, piercing industry in this town and overall Alternative Connection isn't well respected. As far as the tattoo section, i've been tattooed a few times by Jim Gibbons when he was at other shops over the years. He is always very friendly and professional and his portfolio is impressive. I don't know much about the other tattoo artist there but i have glanced at his portfolio and both him and Jim are always very friendly, which is hard to find in tattoo shops. Only reason I gave them 2 stars is because Jim Gibbons is there, but I've heard rumors he is opening his own shop. I hope this review was helpful for anyone who takes body mod seriously.

Billy is a great free style artist. Today he worked around an old tatoo, its not yet completed, but it's coming along nicely... . He is creative and quite meticulous with his art... If you're looking for great tattoo work, I highly

The best place in the area for body peircings. They have a huge selection to fit every style and/or price range. Great people too, I will be going back. Also, the store is filled with a lot of very cool stuff other than body jewlry.

They are kinda like a smoke shop! lots of cool little trinkets to smoke whatever in! Very eager sales people to help you pick out what you need for your specific needs! They do have some really cool contraptions that i liked but they were kinda pricey! Like a small pipe to smoke from was like 40dollars! twice as much as it should of been! but you can get certain peircings there, and they have alot of neat earing thingy's for other parts of your body! really a neat place to go!!
