i got my 1st and only tattoo last night at altered evolution on greenfirld ave. i went with my family, we were getting our ""family branding"" to represent our strong family. we had an appt with MIKE at 5pm, he told us to come as early as we could. i left work early to get there by 330, he was out on lunch so i waited around. he called an hour and a half later to tell his co-workers that he was ""stranded"" in shorewood. i got on the phone and he asked me to wait. this shop has gotten many awards for peircing, my mom really wanted to go there instead of somewhere else.my mom paied him $20 the week before to reserve 5pm for us and he wasnt even there!!! my whole family eventually arrived and he still wasnt there. he didnt arrive at the shop until 6pm!!! then he did someone elses tattoo. so he was ready for us by 7. he wasnt receptive to our ideas but thru much ""talking"" we got a design that he and we could agree on (like he should have a say in it, its on our bodies!!) he was trash talking his own co-workers. he did stay late to finish all of us, and took in more clients while we were still there. he charged us outrageously for the small tatoos we got. he messed up 2 of them. his nose kept running as if he were under the influence, and he didnt even put the $20 toward the tattoos like he said it would. overall i would NEVER go back there for anything, it was unprofessional, dirty, and cramped. i would honestly do ur own tatoo b4 going there, dont waste ur time or money!!!
Cons: unprofessional, late, and rude
