I've got 2 tattoos and one piercing from there. It is clean and sterile. The people are very friendly and I'm going back to get another piercing. I highly recommend Alvin.

First time getting a tattoo & I couldn't have asked for a better experience and artist. Absolutely love how Marcus did my tattoo and would definitely come back to Killer Ink for any more tattoos.

I have got a few piercings and tattoos from Killer Ink and have only have positive experiences there every time. The staff is always very friendly and eager to answer any questions I've had, and I am very pleased with the work that I received. They were also very helpful with working with my budget on my tattoo, which surprised me, as Ive been to a few dingy, unkind parlors before finding this gem of a shop! I highly recommend Killer Ink to anyone wanting to get a great tattoo or piercing for a decent price!!

I went into Killer Ink to receive one of two matching tattoos I had in mind. The first time I went in to talk about getting price quotes and such I waited 45 minutes to talk to someone. They were not particularly busy, but I was patient with them. When I came in for my first appointment I had a piece of paper with what I wanted on it. I wanted to talk to my artist, Mel, about the piece and how I wanted it, but they wouldn't let me speak to her. It took almost an hour of talking to the boy at the front desk about my piece, having him run over to the artist to explain, then having her explain some things and him running back over to me to discuss. I never even got to talk to the artist until I was in the chair ready to go. The tattoo only took about 90 minutes, but the entire time she had head phones in and I couldn't get her attention or talk to her about anything, tattoo related or just friendly banter. Once she was done I noticed that she had gone and change the colors of certain things and never once informed me about it. (She's lucky my favorite color is purple.) I went home and took care of my tattoo, following the instructions they gave me to the T. She offered me a free touch up once it healed, but it never did. It scarred up. I tried everything she recommended and to this day it is still scarred. She told me that maybe I had an allergic reaction to the shade of ink she used, so when I came in for my next piece she used a different color to avoid anymore scarring. I asked her what brand of ink they used so I could look up the ingredients to see if I was possibly allergic to anything. She avoided the question and wouldn't tell me. I got the second tattoo done, and then that one began to scar up, even more than the last one. I went around to a few other shops in my area and asked what they thought about my scarring. They all said it looked like someone wasn't switching out their tools when they should have, and also bearing down too hard while tattooing. I never went back to get any touch ups because my tattoos never healed. I still put lotion on them everyday. I will NEVER go back to Killer Ink for anything or recommend them to anyone! They have very talented artists there with great style, but the lack of communication and respect between their customers, not to mention what I can only assume is poorly skilled and lazy techniques, are the only Killer in this shop.

Business Response:

This is Anita-owner. I am disagreeing with some of this review and also agreeing with portions of it. I disagree that the customer had to wait 45 minutes before she spoke with someone. My shop is known for customer service. Some times there is a small wait period because we get busy because we are a very sucessful shop due to the staff,quality and pricing. I will agree that I can see her experience with mel to be the truth, that is some of the reasons that mel is no longer with the company. She had some issues dealing with the customers face to face and at my shop we are very friendly with the customers. Mel has been gone for several months. I would like you to know that I have corrected that problem. Thank you

I got some script done on my chest, and it was flawless. Chris did my tattoo. He worked his way from the places it would hurt less in. He got it done quick, and even touched it up so it would look better than the drawing. He was very thorough on how to take care of it. The thing about Chris not being licensed is a complete lie. All the artist in the shop are licensed. I would recommend anyone to go to Killer Ink. Very reasonable price.

i was so nervous when i came in to get my industrial pierced but the piercer made me feel super calm and he was very cool about me being nervous. everything was clean and the atmosphere was calming as well so that helped with my nervousness. the piercing went by fast and he told me everything i needed to know to take care of it(they also sell a spray that makes piercings heal up perfectly, definitely buy this if you are getting a piercing). i want to get a tattoo here so badly! i am definitely coming back again soon.

I went into this shop about a week or so ago to get a tattoo. They did an okay job but I have to say that I was HORRIFIED when I found out that more than half of their staff is NOT LICENSED! I didnt believe it so I called Gwinnetts board of health to find out that this was true! Chris is the one that did my tattoo and he is NOT LICENSED! I would not recommend this shop to anyone ever again! This is so unprofessional and dangerous!!!! BUYER BEWARE!

We are Licensed!! This is Anita-owner of killer ink tattoos. All I can to this is it is not true. You can walk into my shop at anytime and see that we are all permitted. Some people are just spiteful and unfortunatly we can not do anything about people except respond. You can call environmental health and confirm that we have never had any lapse in permits. I would encourage you to do that. We are inspected on a regular basis and I can assure you that if this were true, we would not be open. Please come in my shop and get a first hand look on what type of shop I run. Thank you-Anita

Recently set up an appointment with Killer Ink, and my sister came to get her belly button pierced. The staff at Killer Ink were very friendly, humorous, and knowledgable on every question and concern I had related to my tattoo. The body piercer was confident, and collected when piercing my sisters naval. She said the process was smooth, pain free, and she is extremely happy with the work. We will both be going back to killer ink for our tattoos and piercings. It was a good environment to hang out in, and like no other tattoo shop I've been in

Horrible experience. I went to get a tattoo and the "artist" decided to add a background that I did not ask for without first asking or consulting with me. What I ended up with was horrible, and I did not like at all. They have yet to give me my money back and I am doubting they will, even though I did not receive the service that I paid for. After tying to discuss with them what could be done to fix it they were very difficult to deal with. I felt as if they could have cared less about me at all. I would receive different answers or excuses from them each time I went to try and work something out.

I would never recommend this place to anyone. I went to another tattoo parlor to fix my tattoo. There I was treated very well, and they helped me like they were the business who messed up my tattoo. I even learned while I was there, that they do a lot of cover-ups for people that have got tattoos at Killer Ink.

Business Response:

RESPONSE This is the owner of Killer Ink Tattoos, First the customer loved the tattoo when he walked out the door. You would think if he didn't he would have said something at that time. This situation makes me think of something, for example a person goes out and buys a new outfit that they love but "heaven for bid" that someone say something negative about it and then all of a sudden you don't like it anymore. Does this sounds familiar to anyone out there? Secondly I tried everything in my power to please this customer. I even offered to change it up for him, even though I was not obligated to do anything. And as far as the comment goes about cover-ups. that is just a down right lie. I know that because our customers are very happy with there pieces and if we were doing bad work, I don't think I would have been in buisness for 10 years. Some people you just can't please.

I got my first tattoo their and Buzz took great care of me then I brought my sister-in-law and one of her friends and they both ended up getting tattoo's. My sister got one from Buzz and her friend from one of the younger guys. I will only go to Buzz but the younger guys do very good work. If you want really detailed or portraits done go to Buzz if it's a real simple design any of them are good.

My husband has gotten 2 of his 3 tattoos at Puddytats. The place is very clean, and the tattoo artist takes the time to explain the whole process and show how the machinery is carefully cleaned after each tattoo. They have wonderful artists and they can do all kinds of custom work for you. Their pricing is also very good.

Okay, now this place was originally run out of a flea market, wich is where I first got one from them. And I was very happy with the work. So much so that a few years later when they opened shop I went back. Again, great work. On my third visit both me and my spouse got tattooed, and one problem, the employee(not the owner) did a backwords lettering on an old english tattoo, placing two letters opposite of what they should be. I will say this though, Buzz, the owner, and his family , do awesome work. Buzz does beautiful freehand designs, and his prices are great. I reccomend you get inked by Buzz himself, and steer clear of the younger guys that are inking, they are not very careful with their work.
