I went there yr's ago, I think it was in 2002 and i was wanting a "simple cover up of a name of a ex" that I had on my left breast, his name was written in very small letters (aprox. 7-8 millimeters tall) and it said "Vale Te Amo" It was'n't to much to cover up and it also wasn't on exactly my breast it was on my cheast above my breast. (but I'm not gna lie I had drank quite a bit that night before I had the courage to decide to go) So I was kinda outta it, but when I asked the artist opinion onwhat he thought would cover up the name he said a cross and I'm thinking a small cross with some roses...well that's kinda all I remember till the next day noticing the what he did to me...I was in shock and in total disbelief he had made me a cross (that actually looks like the map of Texas!) that was about 4 inches tall and 2 inches wide and covers my whole left breast! I couldn't believe that anyone would do something like that to me and he shaded the whole thing in and made it dark black, I hate it and thanks to that night I have been ashamed of wearing low cut blouses or even undressing in front of my now husband...So I have started the treatment for removal with laser's but as everyone should know that it is a process and it can take many sessions of painful laser treatments to even lighten it (I doubt it will ever be completely removed because of how dark it is!) But I can't put the whole blame on the person that did this to me (I can't call him a tattoo artist because he had no talent!) I have to take partial blame because I shouldn't have been drinking before I went in there..(but honestly how many people go to get a tattoo completely and totally sober? Not many!)

There are dozens of better shops in Houston. Pick one. Any one. Don't put yourself through this. Dago is a butcher.

Being that my last review is not posted I'll restate it. I been to Dago's 4 times...the first for a tongue piercing and the other for tats. Everything was perfect till the last visit. A black dude wit dreds named Tommy messed up the spelling of my mama's name after I wrote it TWICE. Tanya not Tonya......then is very small compared to a my other tat that was the same price. My other name Jessie is perfect...nice size and detail and the one on my shoulder blade is clean too. But this mess on my left arm is ridiculous. I think if was focused more on the tat and not tryna get in my pants and feeling on me then it would be great. I still recommend ppl go to Dago's but not to Tommy. This is something thats on me for life so there's no room for mistakes.

I've traveled all over the world and of all the tattoos I have, I love the one I got from Dago's the best. The people there are great and they're very talented. I can't wait to get back to Texas to get tatted up again!!!!

I guess its an o.k. place to get a Tattoo. I hear they're pretty cheap too. My sister has gone there for her tattoos and she likes it. I think she just goes for the price not quality. They have some deal if you get a tat your friends is free. Never heard of that but I guess.

"The short story"`I had 2 stars done there on both arms and even brought in the picture of it. All they had to do is trace it. The lines are not how the should be and the some points on the stars is terrible. Now I will have to go somewhere else to black them in and fix it. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE! I Called dago and left a message, waiting to hear from him.......I guess I will see if he fixes it, or gives my money back. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!

If you want scar tissue and want to have to pay a lot more money to have it covered, I would never go here... I went in by accident (the sign that says ladies free should have given it away) \r
these people don't know what a tattoo is

Pros: good service, smoke shop next door....lol

Cons: terrible parking

Don't trip is all I can say.... I went to Dago's on the northside on a Friday night and was like damn!!! The parking lot is very small and from the outside looking in u would be like WTF. U can see the artist doing tats through the window and they're sitting in sections like u at the beauty or barber shop. When u get in pick your tat up front cause once you get in line and pay it's a done deal. They have u sign and write in your hand writing waivers. LOl for the piercings before asking u do you want the solution you writing you don't want it. Who don't want to take care of they mouth after you have poked a damn hole in it. They are dirt cheap but sanitary. Some have attitudes but who wouldn't packed in a semi small area wit what seem like a thousand people talking, laughing and staring at u. It's not very private. While getting my lip pierced I had an audience. They give u a number and your called or suppose to be called in order I was number 81 and went before a few of the numbers in the 70s but in well won't complain about that. I would so go back there. I suggest you go with the mind frame that you might be there awhile that it's going to be packed, hot and some attitudes. They also have a smoke house next door go in and take a look pass away sometime. You'll be glad u came.

My friend and I went in here looking to get his ears pierced. I've heard so much about "go to Dago's". Upon first glance, the parking is insanely difficult. Its a "blink and you'll miss it" sort of destination. Inside it looks like a dark, party house. They were packed to the rafters with people, and there were multiple signs threatening customers with explicit profanity about staying out of certain areas, and how they are not your therapist, etc.

There were no visible price lists and no staff on hand to assist us with questions or to make the sale to us for his piercings, so we left the place.

For the price they seem ok. But to someone seeking quality, decency in language, and professionalism... I would seek the services of a studio elsewhere to be honest.

I went one Saturday niight and it was awsome. The parking is terrible, the building looks ok. But once you get inside they are purely professional. The prices are great, the tattoo choices are even better. I had been to other places looking for the right tattoo, the prices were high and the artist were not friendly. But Dago's was on point.

This place is one of the cheapest place in the entire Houston area for piercings. I went in thinking it wasnt gonna be that great or clean, but i was suprised to find that it was actuallly really clean, they explain everything to you before hand and and the piercings are so cheap that the girl who doe them is really quick and knows alot....also i highly recommend you by the piercing solution, it works better that anything else you could put on them
