They wouldn't hire junkies your right. They hire incompetent people who can't do their jobs right. I've gotten 2 tattoos from Angry Moon each one getting infected NOT because lack of care (im a Tattoo Artist myself i know how to care properly for a tattoo) But for poor penmanship in going way too deep, cheap inks, and as i suspect dirty needles leaving the end result of a skimpy missing lined - blotchy tattoo. Not only that but the fact that every piercing i had gotten from there as well had rejected and left scars. Ive had the same piercings done at another place and they've healed perfectly fine. I decided to give them one more chance last year thinking they've really improved. I scheduled an appointment on the day BEFORE Halloween. And when i had gotten there for my appointment a unknown man (not hired by anyone at the shop but a friend of the artist who was running the desk) had stated that the artist could not do my appointment because he was getting ready for his Halloween party...... It was a 5 minute piercing procedure... Pathetic... Angry Moon is lacking in the business culture, They often don't return phone calls, Wont reply to a message like others have stated and won't even offer an excuse as to why they did so. I do NOT recommend going to them!! The prices may be cheaper than others but what you get is not worth what you have paid. The rest of the staff may not be junkies but they sure as heck act and work like ones. They've moved their shop about 3 or 4 times before where they are now. Leading an suspicious gateway for their business. They are no good.
SS Tattoo is actually a nice change of pace from the places you normally walk into. Everything is sectioned off so the artist has the ut-most divided attention to You. The customer. I have gotten 3 tattoos by SS and all came out absolutely fabulous. My nostril piercings came out perfect as well. I often laugh at some of these reviews "It got infected i had to take it out" They tell you proper care procedures before you step out of that door. Do not blame them for your poor handling of responsibility for taking care of something.
