Culture Shock is and will always be the best place to get a tattoo in Northern Indiana. Their friendliness and professionalism is top notch and a step above the rest. Justin takes care of his clients without any hesitation. I've had three tattoos done by their artists and love each one. The first job I had done was actually a touch up of a bad tattoo I had from another shop. Justin made it look like a completely new tattoo and I was so happy with the work I had to return.. If you're looking for high quality work and a good friendship with a local tattoo shop, look no further. TY Justin Sane!

I went into this place for a scheduled touch up from the artist and was told they were going to charge me a shop minim. Um excuse me arnt the touch ups suppose to be free when you are way over charged for having the work done in the first place. I have never been so beside myself. I would say if you want your work done at a reasonable... price and your touch ups included DO NOT GO HERE. I have since then had my work touched up by another artist in the area that wants to treat his clients fair and did not charge me for Bulldogs (dave Wallace) mistakes. As a matter of fact I am writing the same review for culture shock as they are the parent company of this company. SHAME ON YOU, you should treat your clients with the respect they deserve.

Dear Dave Wallace:
In response to your shop policy and owner I talked to both of you and neither of you did anything to correct the problem. Since I did try and talk to you and my voice was not heard then I am telling everyone including web pages about the work that I received from you and neither of you tried to fix it. Sorry that you did not try to help me and as much money as I have spent with you I still say, shame on you as it was not forever and for trying to imply that it was and for not standing by your customer and helping the people out that are paying YOUR bills! Now if you would like to make things right feel free to contact me otherwise I will continue to tell EVERYONE and ANYONE that I can about this unjustice.

I got my first tattoo there. I drew it up myself and Dave did the work for me. I asked him to redraw the piece and he added some flow and detail into it. He did a great job with it, i am very happy. As for the shop itself, very clean very neat. The tattoo healed perfectly not even a scab. I will go back to Dave for as many tattos as I can.

Over the last week 8/20/09 i have had 2 very old tattoos cleaned up. Dave did my work and did an awesome job. the place is very clean, prices are VERY reasonable, they play great music and everyone there is very pleasant. I look forward to going back for some new artwork. I highly recommend Dave and have seen the work that Jake has done as well. Either one would be a great choice when going in for your artwork. Great job guys see you soon.Cathy

I got my belly button pierced here when I was 15 and it was not straight. I didn't know where else to go so I went back to get my industrial pierced at Culture Shock and not only did he mess up that piercing too because so it's uneven and looks like its about to rip out of my ear because it is so close to the end..... BUT one day I got my ear stuck on something and my bar BENT IN HALF. When I took the bar out I BENT IT MORE THAN FIVE TIMES. Yeah, the SURGICAL STAINLESS STEEL JEWELRY CULTURE SHOCK USES BENT. OVER AND OVER AGAIN. They are overpriced for piercing and you can find better quality jewelry at wal-mart. I recommend staying far away from this place unless you want a screwed up piercing that people will ask you if the jewelry is being rejected because they don't know how to pierce. But, if you're in to that sort of thing... go for it.

Pros: jewelry bendable like aluminum foil

Cons: will screw up your piercing and charge you $$$

I'm not writing a review, I wanted to know their piercing prices. I'm going to get 4 piercings next week, and I'm looking around to find the cheapest. I don't care if it gets infected, it'll heal either way as long as I take care of it. I wanted to get septum, snake bites, and a monroe. Can anyone tell me how much that would cost? I probably won't even come on here to check for answers again... so, just e-mail me or message me on myspace if you have one. [: E-mail: deathcertificateforbeautyqueen@yahoo.com MySpace: click here

Alight where do I start? Three years ago I went into culture shock to get a tattoo that my mother (an artist) drew up for me. It is a very clean looking place and one of the very few places to get a tattoo in Valparaiso IN. So I went in there and had Amy do the tattoo for me. It looked really good and then I got a staff infection 1 day after I got the work done. It started breaking out in little bubbles. It started with one on my back where the tattoo was done. Then a few days later I got a couple more. When I went to the doctor they told me it was a staff infection from the tattoo. After I spent over the price of the tattoo to make the staff infection go away I was left with a scar in the middle of the tattoo. I asked if they would fix it and they would NOT. After the current people that were working there left and only 2 remained I thought that I would go back into the shop to get another one (like I said very few places in Valpo. to get a tattoo). Now the tattoo I got was 3 weeks ago THREE WEEKS AGO and it is so bad with hard black lines I went to talk to another tattoo artist out of town about it. I am now trying to exfoliate it to try to remove some of the color so that I may go have it reworked. This tattoo was done from Justin. 2 tattoos from 2 different people same location. So I will never go back to Culture Shock I would recommend going someplace else even if you have to drive unless you are up for careless work and a staff infection or worst. Also when we where in there the lady that stands behind the counter was super rude to my best friends that came in to watch the process. They were not doing anything wrong and because they were not spending money they were treated like dirt.

I walked right in, Justin was awesome! Very, very clean! Being in the medical profession I looked around alot. Great music and artwork. I would recommend asking the client if they would like the door open or closed though. Justin is a popular guy, and although I didn't care that my a$$ was hanging out, some might. Looking to add on to what I got on Monday already.

PROS: great artisit, great music, CLEAN, reasonable prices...
CONS: maybe the "privacy thing"? didn't bother me....

i have gotten my tongue and my eyebrow pierced here, along with a shoulder and leg tattoo. They have great artist, and they are very reasonably priced. It is the cleanest place I have ever been in. Its like a doctors office. They owner is very eager to help you with his bulldog by his side. She is adorable. Everyone seems to enjoy her. Dave, the artist that did my back, is amazing. I have sent many friends of mine to him and they agree that he is great. he does amazing black work and custom work. If you are looking for that perfect vision of a tattoo this is the place to go!!

PROS: clean, friendly, reasonable, and great artist
CONS: haven't found any yet!!!

This place is amazing. I got my first tattoo here. The price was right and it didn't take that long.The only weird thing is that they do not accept credit cards but there is an ATM nearby.
