Aweful!! UNPROFESSIONAL!! Do NOT go here!!!! – This place was awful! WHERE DO I START!!?? I went in there a week before my tattoo to have something drawn up and the guy said he would do it (name starts with a J). I get there on appointment day and he is no where to be found. So they try to get someone else to do it. That fell through. Then, "J" shows up about 3 hours later and says he didn't want to do mine because he had other clients!! I had been waiting HOURS to get this done and had an appointment for a week. Then he finally gets drawing and FINALLY get started about 4.5 hours after being there. He starts my tattoo and then during the middle of it stops to answer personal phone calls, texts, and even gets up and leaves the room several times for like 20 minutes to "take care of something". He comes back in and has random friends in our room talking with him while I'm sitting there with my shirt off. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!! Then when all is said and done and I see my tattoo, the only thing he got right was the outline. I said I did not want a circular tattoo, it was, I did not want it a blob of color, it was. Maybe get off your phone and LISTEN TO YOUR CLIENTS!! After all, it will be on me the REST OF MY LIFE!!!! Also he quoted me $120 for this tattoo and a retouch of an older one. Then charged me $200 for the new and did not have "time" to retouch the other one!! S*it hole is RIGHT!!!
best price, best tattoo – decided i wanted a tattoo, called them up and got in with Mike, he was super cool and super creative. put his own style to my tattoo and i love it! normally im kinda scared going to tattoo shops because other tattoo artists ive been to are really rude and tell people to suck it up, meaning the pain. But he was extremely nice and did his own thing. i love my tattoo and definitely wouldn't go to anyother tattoo shop! :)
Body Ritual Rocks!!! – i had a small tattoo and a nose piercing done at body ritual. not only was it one of the nicest shops i have even been to, mike gave me the best tattoo i have ever gotten! my piercing turned out super good, fast and no problems at all. good prices too..definitely check out this place!
my $h!!!t looks goooood!!! – id like to thank patrick for doing an amazing job on fixing my sleeve. i love it! and i cant wait for more color! super nice guy... takes his time and is very accurate. i was very comfortable in the shop. all the artist were very friendly. Id also like to thank Ray for being a cool @ss dude. i hope to get inked by him soon as well. you guys are the $h!!!!!!t :)
Great tats...great peeps – I've been tattooed at several shops in the Milwaukee area. This shop takes the takes the cake. We got helped right away and the wait was short for my tat. It was a reasonable price and my artist did a great job. It was a very clean and comfortable. Saw an awesome portrait get done by this asian kid Kong that works there. My next tat will be from him. Great place, great experience. 2 thumbs up!!
Jesse rocks :) – Jesse did a very nice job. I have what looks like 6 open cuts "from claws" on my sides by my lower ribs. He took time, yet didn't lallygag around. He did a nice, clean even job. He talked to me to keep me calm "which I find a plus anywhere I get a tattoo". All around a nice guy.
I will agree with some of the other reviews on most of the people there are overpriced and unfriendly.
I ONLY am recommending Jesse
if you see dreadlocks=walk-out IMMEDIATELY!!!! – i went in with plans to get a tattoo done and had a picture available on my phone of exactly what I wanted done. There were 3 people working at the time, no other customers in the shop. My friend and I went in, and the man at the desk (a white male with long blonde dreadlocks) had an automatic bad attitude towards us. he acted as if we walked in to a library and asked him to tattoo us. He told us that we needed to go home and print the 4 WORDS that we wanted tattooed, even though the girl working was 2 feet away, looking at us stoned, on a computer next to a printer. He asked us to wait a minute then said he would not be able to do this tattoo and that the font we requested is too small. His exact wording was "it does not take a Ph.D in tattooing to know that you can't have letters that are super small". Even though i would have been open to him drawing a design for the saying I wanted, he did not offer this at all and clearly did not want my business or money. He had 2 full sleeves that looked terrible. He clearly practiced on himself before getting a job here. Needless to say, I did not get my tattoo done, I would not let that creeper touch my precious body, nor the stoner behind him, or the guy who was too busy with himself to even greet us. I will NEVER return to this shop and would highly recommend that you find another location to get your ink done unless you want someone with a MAJOR attitude problem putting permanent tattoos on your body.
If you took the time to research this place before going, you are probably smart enough to take my advice. :)
I <3 MY PIERCING FROM BODY RITUAL! – I was visiting from CHICAGO and literally just drove by and decided to stop...I had been wanting my tragus pierced for a couple months, but it was kinda pricey...so we stopped in to check and it was only $25!!! DECISION MADE!!! in Chicago the CHEAPEST and that'sat a "hole-in-the-wall" spot is $40...Jade Dragon charges $75...There was one person in front of me and they answered all of my many questions no problem! Unfortunately, I can't remember my piercer's name, but she made me feel comfortable...quick and painless....It's healing great and looking good! WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!
forreal, dont go there – 1st of all, the ppl that work there come off as dbags, from the chick at the front desk, to the guy who did my tat. the guy who did my tat was plainly rushing, and when you're getting something that will be on you for life, thats not what you want. i had to tell him to correct the parts that were clearly not right, after he asks me "how do you like it?" and the kicker is that its way overpriced, charged me $80 for something that should run $60 tops. like really, the ppl that work there just come off soooo lame. its over priced, and they come off as like, really a-holish ppl, i dont know about you, but when it comes to something that will always be on me, i want it to be quality, and for it to be done by non a-holes. i highly suggest just going down the block to gothic body, they have always been really cool, and do great work. dont get anything done at body ritual, its a waste of money, and time, and they dont deserve your buisness, honestly.
very professional, very clean. – the place looked small from the outside but its huge on the inside. great artists with great ideas.... i got my 1st tattoo there and since then have gotten two more (all three at body ritual). it was a great experience they were nice and relaxed. i would deffenetly recomend body ritual.... also they give out free kon-dums (censorship) witch is a plus
