Wild Rose is amazing i dont know another word to say about them.
They are friendly, they are sensative, they are good priced, good artist, timely, and they have a friendly enviornment
They also took my drawing that i had drew for my mom and tattooed it on her and it looks amazing! i watched her get it done and at the end she loves it too. I cant wait til i turn 18 and get my tattoos i plan on going to wild rose to get it done!
My first tattoo was done by Wild Rose around my 18th birthday. I had to have it colored in 3 times, and still it is faded. Also, I have had other tattoos done since this one, and each time a different tat artist sees the one done by Wild Rose, they tell me how terrible it is.
I don't know about their piercing, or if they even still do it, but stay away, and drive a little farther if you have to!
Wow. Creative, artisitic, cleanly.
They do some awesome work here.
We have used them personally.
Restoration of tattoo's too. Fabulous job.
Their art work is beautiful and so creative.
Lots of sketches and pictures to choose from.
ALL original art exclusive to them.
PROS: More than reasonable in price.
CONS: It does hurt!
Me and my daughter came in there today 4/19/10 and our experience was EXCELLENT. The guys were funny, outgoing and most importantly SUPERB...my tattoo which is #15 was done beyond FANTASTIC!!! And my daughters was excellent as well....HIGHLY recommend !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I met Alberta through my boyfriend and liked her right away. After seeing the amazing piece that she did on my boyfriend, I was confident that she could pull off my idea for my new tattoo. I believe that my tattoo was a little complicated in that it involves no hard lines, or an outline, an abstract sort of thing I guess. I got a cherry blossom tree with some words below. The piece turned out absolutely AMAZING! Alberta was very friendly towards us and I got the tattoo for a very good deal. There is a huge difference in the style of my boyfriend's tattoo and mine, but both turned out equally amazing, and I plan to go back for many more!
As you can see, all of the posts have no links 2 any of her work... I'll let you make the decision!!! (ttp://i33.tinypic.co/ayp06a.jpg) This piece only took her a lil over an hour and we still got another 3 hours left. She does GREAT work and is very accommodating if you have an idea of what you want. In terms of Customer Service; She's a Biker Chick, not a Walmart CSR!!! She throws great Ink and I'll return : ) Hope the Image helps you make your decision... (insert h and m in link)
Pros: Great Work
In my experience I found that Alberta Rose is an all around good person. She doesn't over price her tattoos(you get what you pay for). I have a tattoo from her myself and I am extremely pleased with the work she did and the price. One of the reviews said that she is a bad business woman and if thats true how has her shop been open for 10 years. She takes pride in her work, she is very quick, and the outcome of her work is phenomenal. Alberta Rose is a FRICKEN artist.
Pros: ITS ALL GRAVY
Fortunately, I wasn't "treated" to the shennanigans of Alberta Rose. I had been in twice in the past, once for a simple Chinese character & then again for a custom-designed piece. Both had been done by an artist named "Cruz" and was really pleased. Did an awesome job with the custom piece especially, getting a working version drawn up on the spot & everything.
Much to my dismay, when I went in last year for a piece to accompany the custom one, I was informed that Cruz no longer was there. Talked things over with the guy that was there, showed me some of his past work & thought that I'd get what I was looking for. Said he could make it happen...but I should've turned around and walked out the door when he decided to freehand it. Or when he told me that the cloudline I was going for (intricate, detailed) was 'going to look stupid' and opted to go for his own design of large puffs, which turned out looking TERRIBLE. This, coupled with the fact it was uneven done in light ink. Told me that once it healed, I could come back and if anything needed to be fixed, it would.
Stopped back in and expressed my displeasure about the cloudline...was again told that it would look stupid. Ended up being smart and just turned around and left. Have been walking around now for about a year and am finally seeking an artist to fix this work that was done. For $200...geez. TERRIBLE. I can't even tell you. Well...$250 after tip. I will NEVER, NEVER step foot in there again & I'd advise that you don't either. I throw out a verbal red flag anytime someone mentions the shop.
Pros: Easy To Find Location.
Cons: Bad parking. Skill lacking.
