I had a really nice experience at Fura, I was greeted nicely, and the prices weren't horrible. The piercing on my eyebrow was almost painless, and though the piercing room was a bit intimidating, the piercing has turned out great.

I am a return customer for the 3rd time now to Fura for piercings, and they are by far THE BEST! The owner Mel is so amazingly friendly and talented!!! I love the fact that everything is so clean in that shop and you are treated very nicely. For any future piercings or ink, I am definitely going back to Fura! You will not be disappointed! 2/16/10

It sounds like the way your neck healed could have been caused by other factors. If two stars healed perfectly, and the one on your neck didn't , it isn't necessarily because of the artist. It is a really sensitive area to heal. It is more exposed, thinner skin and needs extra care. How did you take care of it the first week? Did you pick the scabs? Do you have sensitive skin, allergies or use drugs? These can all contribute to a tattoo not healing properly. Natalie is known for her amazing work and customer service. She stands behind her work. In others words, I find this really hard to believe.
Signed,
A very happy customer of Natalie's

I had gone to Fura Bodyworks for three stars one on my back one on my chest and one on my neck. The 2 on my chest and back came out good. Yet the one on my neck came out screwed up! My tattoo person at that point was Natalie, she went so deep into the skin that it became more like raw flesh then the tatted flesh look/feeling. The scabbing got so bad that when it did heal more then half of the ink bled out. Its not just that but I also talked to four different artists after and they said they have never seen any tattoo come out with a scab like mine. Thirdly all four artists said it would take them at the most a hour and a half for my stars. Natalie took three hours. An average cost from the other artists was 150$ she charged almost 300$.

I went there Wednesday night at 8 p.m. and got my nose pierced. I drove there with my friend, and once i found the place and walked in I knew that was where i wanted to get anything done at. I spoke with Mel, the owner of the spot, and he really made me feel comfortable. We talked the whole time, and i was able to develop a relationship with the guy so i wasn't just getting my nose done by some stranger. I will defiantly say that its a nice, clean place and he defiantly knew what he was talking about. that's going to be my first and last place i go to get any piercings and tattoos. :)

My daughter and I went to get our nose piercings done together at Fura Body Works. Chris helped us out with selecting our jewelery and willingly answered any questions we had. Mel was great in explaining the entire procedure and really helped to calm our nerves. This place was very clean and sanitary. Fura is awesome in presentation and customer satisfaction. We actually thought we were in the wrong place at first. (NO OBSCENE ART ALL OVER) the place is very classy without the high cost and not your typical "TATTOO PARLOR". I will highly recommend this place to everyone. We will be taking our son there for his first tattoo. "THANKS FURA BODY WORKS WE NEEDED A PLACE LIKE YOURS!!!"DA FAMILY
