Seattle >Slave to the Needle
Best tattoo experience, hands down!.
So far I have been tattooed by 2 artists at the Wallingford location and pierced at the Ballard shop. I have had nothing but stellar service and always left more than happy with my tattoo/piercing results.
Robert and Marc have both given me fabulous body art.... including a huge back-piece and some smaller pieces. I constantly am stopped by strangers and asked where I got the amazing ink. Thanks guys... you ROCK!
I have no idea where these other reviewers with the negative attitudes are coming from, but I have always seen other clients treated in nothing but a positive, friendly manner. Deposits are mandatory at all other tattoo shops I have encountered, so this is nothing "strange" or out of the ordinary. It covers the artists's time spent creating a piece of art for you.
As for the quality of artwork and passion of the artists... well... the portfolios, awards, and clean atmosphere speaks for itself.
I am looking forward to getting inked by some other artists there! I'm a return customer for sure!
Rips You Off!!. I am a stickler for my money being my money, and these bastards stole my $100 deposit. They are swindlers, do not trust them.
Best Tattoo Parlor Ever!. I had the best experience here, the place was super clean and the staff treated me like we were old friends. My tattoo is beautiful too and healed up perfectly. I could not have asked for a better experience. I recommend this place to everyone who stops me to ask where I get my work done. I'll be going back for more work.
Obnoxious staff, inconceivably bad service. Go somewhere with nice people instead!. OH MY GOD! I can't be in Seattle! Slave to the Needle must have been picked up by a tornado and brought here from the island of misfit, miserable toys. I am trying to remember if I've ever had a worse experience with anyone in any service business. I think Slave is the worstest. My tattoo "artist" must have had he day off from filming Dawn of the Dead XVI. But he was still in-character and about as artistic as Charlie Brown. I have two tattoos from Adorn in Portland (Love Adorn!!). There they asked me to send in my tattoo images by email and when I arrived my artist (Jesse rocks!) had been thinking about the design and had done some sketching and had some great ideas - very creative and artistic - as you should expect from a good tattoo artist. You won't get that at Slave. I can't imagine worse service. You'd be better off just walking in off the street anywhere else.
Excellent Tattoo Parlor!.
I have used Slave for two of my tattoos. I am also set up with an appointment to have my next tattoo done at Slave this month.
If you're thinking about new ink, Slave is the perfect place to go. A very clean facility, and very experienced artists.
I would and do recommend Slave to anyone asking me about getting a tattoo.
Best Tattoo Shop in Seattle. I got my first tattoo this last summer at the Wallingford shop from Ed Lott. I live in Houston, Texas and Ed worked with me online to get my artwork for the portrait of my dog just right. My tattoo took over 4 hours, and even though Ed is not much of a conversationalist (he really gets into his work) I had such a great experience. My tattoo is so incredible and Ed is truly a great portrait artist! He is very thorough about getting every detail right and is great at explaining the importance of aftercare. I never had a problem with my tattoo and it has healed beautifully and looks so beautiful. I honestly get compliments on my tattoo on a daily basis and some of the comments have been "that's the best tattoo I have ever seen"! I want to get another tattoo already and I know that I will be returning to Slave to the Needle and have Ed do my next one! Everyone there from the receptionist to the other artists were really nice and make you feel comfortable.
best tattoos in washington, especially the artist josh s., awesome artwork and great to work with. i have tattoos from several shops in the seattle area but the best experience has been with josh at slave to the needle. very friendly and talented artist. i came in with an idea of what i wanted and he was able to create a design far better than i could imagine. the tattoo process was painful but the conversation was a great distraction. i would recommend this shop hands down to anyone looking for the best in seattle.
Editorial Review. A Seattle favorite for tattoos and piercing, this tattoo parlor is clean and has an extremely knowledgeable and friendly staff.
Excellent experience for tattoo newbie. I wanted a small Ironman logo tattooed on my calf to commemorate my big race. Slave to the Needle was a welcoming, clean and friendly place. The artist who did my tattoo was nice, fun, and talked me through the process and made me feel very comfortable. I highly recommend Slave to the Needle.
Best In Seattle!!!. I went to Slave To The Needle yesturday to get my navel pierced and couldn't be more impressed by the cleanliness of the location and amazing service. I wasn't to nervous but the friendly people there eased the rest of my nerves. My piercer, David, took the time to explain each step of the piercing process, answered all my questions, and did a wonderful job. I have had many friends go to Slave To The Needle for both tattoos and piercings and they have all had wonderful expieriences as well. I would recommend Slave To The Needle to anyone.
