I've become very good friends with everybody at south side tattoo for years. As for the rude reviews below, here's the problem.. South Side piercings are very clean, they do everything right in front of you, such as putting on new gloves cleaning the piercings even getting Q-tips with clean tongs. The only thing that touches the new gloves, besides you piercing part, is the earring itself. If it does get infected its most likely your fault for not cleaning it well, or going into a pool or other things the piercer will tell you not to do. As for the staff, I worked at south side as a person out in front. Trust me it is hard to keep your cool when you have to get the tatt drawn, find an artist to do it, how much it cost, when it can be done, how long it will take, and they have to do that FOR EVERY CUSTOMER IN THE SHOP. South Side is always busy, there are only so many tattooing areas and 1 place for piercing in the shop. Satisfying every customer is impossible. Therefore do not listen to the bad reviews, find out if South Side is good on your own. Everyone has different opinions.
