I planned on this to be my last tattoo. It will not be after the wonderful work I received from Heather. I didn't even know I could get a tattoo this good at my age. ( I am 44) I thought only people in tattoo magazines got work this beautiful. The tattoo was custom made for me by Heather after meeting and getting a design together. It was important to be customized because this tattoo is for a very lived friend who passed. I am still in awe of the beauty of my work. I also must mention that I have been a nurse for over 20 years and Heather was so meticulous about proper technique. She was very attentive to remaining clean throughout the whole process. I have never seen anything like it outside the hospital. Needless to say anymore except I will be back for another and pass the word around. Oh,I also must mention that we had great conversations and just felt like I've known the girls working there for years. It was just great!

Best experience ever. I have been in 2 other shops before and they made me feel uncomfortable, for lack of better words, but the ladies at Mans Ruin were so nice to me and actually listened to what i had to say. I really didnt have a clue on my first tattoo and they made me feel comfortable and relaxed. It was was just an all around great experience and I would recommend this place to anyone. Thanks Again Mans Ruin!

I want to start by saying that I have never seen a tattoo artist wear a mask,wrap everything in plastic and wear a full plastic apron. Heather was the cleanest tattoo artist I have ever seen. My wife and I both work in the medical field. She is a nurse and I am an EMT. We both have multiple tattoos and from now on we will never go anywhere else. The quality of the work we received was perfection. The shop atmosphere was also extremely professional. The shop is beautiful and the art is fine quality. We can't speak high enough of this establishment.

Got my navel pierced by Jenn, it was quick & painless. She knew exactly what she was doing, & made sure I was comfortable. If you want a professional piercing or tattoo, this is the place to go.

I drive from SC to get tattooed by Heather. I have several from her and always leave more than pleased. It is well worth the drive. The shop itself is super clean and Heather is a clean freak. She wears a mask,gloves and plastic apron while working. All the instruments are wrapped in plastic and the bottles. No other place I have been tattooed in the past does this. And that is why I drive the extra miles. It also makes me feel good that everyone there is sober. I have been for years and it makes getting work done here more pleasurable. My next endeavor will be to get Jenn to do a piercing for me. She taunts me every time I'm there!

It is disheartening to have people write false,fraudulent claims on these open forums. I have been tattooing for 12 years and have owned Mans Ruin for 10 years.
We have been voted best in the area for 8 years and have been internationally published. It is great to hear positive comments of coarse!
It is upsetting that someone who try to trash our good name with photos of a tattoo we never did.(after 5 years too?) It is obvious by looking at our real work at www.mansruintattooscom that any attempts at bashing are nothing but sad and futile.
We would like to thank our long time clients and new potential clients for having trust in us for over 10 years + in business.

We have been clients of Mans Ruin Tattoo for years and we have had beautiful work done everytime. The girls are always friendly. We wouldnt go anywhere else for tattoos. Seeing the photo below is obviously fake.
They are voted best in the area for a reason.

March of 2005, 2 friends and I went here and were all tattooed by Heather.

I had the best experience at this shop. The girls were so patient and kind to me. They took the time to draw the tattoo I wanted and did the tattoo for me. She went over the care very well and took the time to tell me everything in detail. I am a medical professional and I must say it was a very clean shop. I would recommend this shop very highly to anyone wanting a tattoo!

The last review I read was the farthest from my experience. I had a custom tattoo drawn,which took a week to draw because they were quite busy.She explained that it may take up to two weeks. I got the phone call to come in to look at the drawing. I asked for a few changes that were made on the spot to my liking. I made my appointment and got my tattoo within the next two days. Never did I feel rushed or treated in a wrong way. My tattoo is great and has wonderful balance. I cant see anything true about the last posting.

I've been there twice. Once for a tat, and once to have it fixed and another small piece added. (BTW: She wouldn't do any touch ups or repairs, even on her own work, for less than $75.) The artist still did a sloppy job on the repair and addition: The tat had uneven lines, little blobs of ink where it should not have been, and although it was a supposed to be a simple symmetrical design, the final product was quite asymmetrical.

I wanted to give Man's Ruin another chance, because I really wanted to support a woman-owned business. However, my experience indicates that the artist is not very good (or maybe she was just really tired). I don't know. I'm so disappointed... and I have a bad tattoo.

Had my first body piercing (navel, by Zoe) about 7 weeks ago at Man's Ruin. I liked the staff and atmosphere so much that I decided to return for my second tattoo that I had been contemplating for some time. I picked out my design and Heather performed the tattooing. I am very pleased with the finished results. Would recommond Man's Ruin to anyone seeking body piercing or a tattoo.
