Well I have gone here 4 times and don't know why I keep going back. I think I am done for good this time.
The first time my sister took me in to get my belly button peirced. Ty did the piercing, he is the owner of Fenix, He did a good job and I still have this piercing and have never had a problem with it but I had to wait awhile to have this done even though I had an appointment.

The second time I went in was to get a tatto for my son. Again I had an appointment but had to wait for an hour and a half. I was pleased with the work yet again and the amount of detail was great for the value I really love my tattoo.

The third time I went in I of course had an appointment with Ty but he forgot about another appointment so I had to be seen by another guy Rico, He did a great job I love my hip tattoo and he was very fast.

Then the last time I went it I had set an appointment for 8pm. I get there and no one comes to the counter until I had been there for 10 minutes just for them to tell me he would be back shortly. When he got there at 8:15 he told me that he forgot about some meeting he had and that he hadn't even started on his 7pm. I told him I needed to check with my sitter as I was paying someone to sit with my kid so I could go hae this work done. He said he would have me done starting at 9.
When 9 finally rolled around he had just started working on his 7pm appointment.
Finally at 10:30 he started on my sisters tattoo, I brought her in to get her a tattoo so you would think he would be a little bit happy that I brought him business but he kept stopping and getting distracted. By this point I just wanted to go home but seeing as it was a 40 minute drive and I really needed my tattoo touched up and my sons name added I decided to stay.
Her tattoo took about 30 minutes and I was charged $60 for her tattoo which was just a black tattoo with no shading but I paid the full shop rate which is fine but considering the wait I would expect a little discount as it was not my fault he messed his schedule up and the 7pm appointment only paid $50 for an hour of work that had shading and coloring in it but whatever apparently some clients get a discount and others don't.
He started prepping his station for my tattoo at 11 but because some friends came in he did not get started until 11:30 I was nearly about ready to walk out as I had my appointment at 8 but 3 and a half hours later finally got started just adding a 7 letter name above my existing tattoo, he didn't even touch up the tattoo below like I had wanted instead said he would touch it up when he touches up the name and I got charged $60 for my tattoo as well.
I do like his work and appreciate his knowledge and while yes he does have an interesting sense of humor I choose to drive the 40 minutes to him because I like his work but am done with this poor customer service quality and don't appreciate paying $60 for a 15 minute tatto job when I wanted my other tattoo touched up as well so all in all the 45 minutes of tattooing that took him 4 hours to finish and cost me $120 while the work is good the overall experience is no longer worth it to me.

I love the work Fenix Tattoo has done for me. Ty and Rico are OMG the best at what they do. The talent these two artists have is nothing less than amazing. Any and all of my tattoo's will I get in the future will all be done at Fenix Tattoo.

I love Fenix tattoo, I love all the ink I have gotten over the years at Fenix tattoo. Soon my daughter will be starting her venture into tattoos and a piercing as well. After getting two botched tattoos in the past, Ty did an amazing job fixing them up.. Now I will only get ink with Fenix tattoo.

Both my wife and I were inked at fenix,our tattos have recived many commentl's all good one's,. I had an arm band done with 4 colors,my wife had a lower back tatto done, we had a great time while getting them done,
Both of our tats healed quickly,and did'nt require any touch up work,
I don't hesitate a second when asked where to have a tatto done..
I can't speak for my wife but I will be back to get another round of ink done,

If your thinking about getting a tatto look no futher than fenix!!!!
Thank you ty and heather

I can't speak about the other tattooists, they may be very good, but that guy Tomas, no way I would trust him with my skin...no way.

Also the neighborhood is a little sketchy. I think it's safer during the day, and I wouldn't go there alone.

Fenix Tattoo has one of the kindest and most skilled staffs in the city. Heather and Ty are at the top of their games and they are the ONLY ones to trust with your skin.

PROS: Heather and Ty, Location
CONS: Parking
