Just my style..
I have had numerous tattoos done by Heather and numerous piercings by Devo. Both are great.
Heather's drawing style is awesome, it's just my perfect aesthetic. I'm an art school grad myself, so I"m pretty picky with what I want, and in the past I've always drawn up what I want for tattoos myself. My relationship with Heather started that way, but has now evolved into me giving her the "gist" of what I'm looking for and letting her take the lead on what would be awesome. The results always are. She's pulled off some amazing things.
Devo's great too. My husband and I both have been in to see him many times. He explains everything in a "layman's terms" fashion as he goes along and I felt very comfortable with the process. I don't ever feel like the terminology is too technical or over my head, and I never feel "stupid" for asking a lot of questions. (I'm not as familiar w/ the piercing process as I am w/ the tattoo process.)
The location of the store is out of the way for me, but I don't care. The shop is clean and the new "office manager" (or whatever her title is) is very good at answering the phone promptly, politely, and getting info from you in a professional manner. This is an improvement from when the shop first opened.
If you've had a so-so experience in the past, give them a try again.
Best Artists around.
I've been to Starship for two of my tattoos. Never had a problem with "Rudeness" like the majority of people complaining on here.
Here's a little tip for those who think they are "Rude" Don't walk in there with any attitude or being a total douche. Of course people will be "Rude" by your terms. But they are just treating you like you are treating them.
Joe is the only artist I really know and Heather a little bit. Every time I have been there I have been given the same respect I have given them.
Best Tattoos around. I have been to Starship Tattoo for all my 18 tattoos. Joe Woiak has done them all, and I couldnt be happier. He is, in my opinion, the best tat artist around. Im 100% happy with all of his work, and so are all the family members and friends I have sent there. I get nothing but compliments on them, especially from the guys that are fully covered. Those guys appreciate really good work, and thats what Joe does. Do yourself a favor, go see Joe at Starship, and tell him Jay sent you. You wont regret it :)
Devo is the best!.
Devo is not only great at his job, he is also a great person! He was nice, all around great customer service. He made sure i knew exactly what was going on. Talked me through everything step by step. On top of that he was just great to talk with! Driven, working towards his goals, knew what he was doing, etc. He worked fast and well. Seems like a person I would want to have as a good friend. I wish Devo nothing but the best of luck with everything. Thanks for the great work!
As for the other workers and the tattoo artists, I agree with most of the other reviews. Very unfriendly, rude, no people skills, etc.
They could learn a thing or two from Devo.
tattoo needs to be redone.
I received a tattoo from starship at summerfest. They had a mobile station set up.
First off, they didn't give me a sheet or explanation describing the aftercare process. I've had a tattoo before, but most places would double-check.
More than a month later, the tattoo looks like crap. I constantly have people asking me if it is real. They say it looks like someone drew it on with a marker. The color is very patchy (dark in some areas and light in others) when it should be solid.
Very unimpressed. Would never recommend it to anyone. My friend had one done there and was pleased, but I would never go back.
Great for piercing, except by Devo.. Me and my friend went there to get our noses pierced. The girl with the purple hair was super nice and answered all of our questions. The piercer was sleeping on the chair, and was rude to us when he finally woke up, so we left and came back the next day and got our piercings done by steve and the girl. i love mine so much. thank you starship.
Great for tattoos, not piercings.
I went here for my first tattoo, and it turned out great. The artist wasn't too friendly, but the job was well done.
I later went in with my friend for our belly button piercings. Both of ours got infected. I took mine out. My friend called them and they told her its just healing, but it actually like fell out. Now we are both left with nasty scars above our belly buttons.
Problems with piercing for year. I had my 3rd nose piercing at the Starship booth at Suburban Harley event 9/2007. A year later my piercing still hurt if bumped and there seems to be scar tissue. If I take the piercing out it is painful and difficult to put back in. This piercing is only millimeters from another piercing that is fine, done 20 years ago with a gun. I have taken it out, healed and am looking to get repierced from someone more experienced. I can not say what caused the problem, but like I said, this is my 3rd nose piercing, the other 2 are fine.
the rudest people in greenfield. these people are the perfect example of how you should not answer a phone. instead of just simply saying you have reached the wrong number, i was hung up on three times. thats just wrong no matter if you're the owner of the business, a sales person, or receptionist.
Best Tattoo EVER!. I went to Starship a few months back wanting to get a tattoo - I have other tattoos and have always been able to get in right away, but that was not the case at Starship. I explained to the girl at the counter what I was looking for and she said she thought Brian would be a good one to do my tattoo as he is very skilled and has a degree in art and is familiar with shading techniques, etc.... I met Brian and he said he could draw something up for me and gave me a price (which was VERY reasonable). I made an appointment with him, but was a little disappointed that I had to make it for 3 weeks out as he was completely booked until then. 3 weeks later I showed up and got the tattoo... Brian was a great guy, very nice and funny and easy to talk to. The tattoo took 3 hours and it just flew by - after all was said and done I ended up with a tattoo even more beautiful than I had imagined, he is definitely a top notch artist! I will go there again and again. I highly recommend Brian and Starship!
