Fantastic! Love it here 3/1/2012

I go to Ben for all of my tattoos. He has done my shoulder and my wrists. I took two of my friends to see him also and he did fantastic work on them. Reasonably priced to! The atmosphere is fun and relaxing, no one is uptight. Ben always plays him music very, very loud and comes across as a little rude but I promise, he is not. He works on your idea and really helps make it how you want. I've gone twice and once he knows who you are, he is even friendlier. I love it there and more importantly, I love my tattoos! more

Best Place Ever!! 12/13/2010

When I decided to get my nose piercing I did a lot of research of where to go and possible people to do it. This was my first body piercing so I wanted to make sure I picked the right place. When I went in there I was greated with a friendly staff. Chris is the one who did my piercing and before he did the procedure he explained everything from what types of rings or studs to use all the way through how he was going to pierce it. The pain was nothing, a little pinch. He walked me through the whole process and it was a fantastic experience. more


I did a lot of research on tongue piercing before I decided to go ahead and do it. I read the reviews for East Coast Tattoo and most were great, so I decided that I would go here. Chris was my piercer and he did my nose and tongue. He decided to do my tongue first and then my nose, which I was later glad for. My tongue did not hurt at all!!! The nose was a little painful, but nothing to complain about. Chris was very informative and let me know everything BEFORE he did the piercing. He answered all of the questions that I had and was very knowledgable and patient. I would highly recommend East Coast Tattoo and Chris if you are looking to get any body piercing done. The woman at the front desk was also awesome. She made sure that I understood all of the aftercare that Chris had explained to me and even told me the cheapest places to purchase the products that I needed for the 2 piercings. If I decide to get anymore piercings or tattoos, I will DEFINATELY be going here. I got my piercing a little over a week ago and everything is going well. Follow what they tell you as far as aftercare and you will be golden!!! more

Got my first tattoo here and also my tongue 7/14/2010

I noticed a girl had written a review that no one should get piercings at East Coast because they are terrible. I 100% disagree. I got my tongue pierced here and the owner who works at the front desk and piercer were very friendly and the piercer completely talked me through it. It honestly didn't even hurt. He told me the aftercare and I loved it! Pros: CLEAN, nice, helpful, patient more

My favorite spot 1/11/2010

I love this place. I've been to a few different tat shops but this place is my favorite by far. They are extremely nice, patient, and really work with you to make sure you get exactly what you want. The quality of work is amazing I get compliments all the time on the work they've done. Prices aren't that bad either. Not to mention the place itself is wicked nice. Pool tables, tv, and a jukebox to keep you occupied while you wait, a computer to help you look up pics, and walls of art. Its clean, good quality, and good times...what else could you ask for?! more

Great place 8/8/2009

My wife and i went in to get tattoos, the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We had Chris as our artist. He was awesome, took his time and tattooed every detail. I haven't had the tattoo 24 hours and have received many compliments. Would definitely recommend to all my friends. Pros: staff,location, size more

Amazing 5/9/2009

Okay well i got my Industrial pierced on February 5th, 2009 by Chris. He was so polite and talked to me throughout the whole piercing. He made me very welcome at the shop, and he knew exactly what he was doing. He provided aftercare instructions for me, and i followed them completeley. It's now early May, and my piercing feels amazing! I recommend it completeley and i plan on getting another piercing this summer :) Pros: everything. great atmosphere Cons: blank! more


I went to East Coast to get my nipples pierced about 3 months ago. The woman working the front desk was extremely rude, and honestly after just seeing the inside of the shop I almost didn't want to get pierced there. The only reason I did, was because I have 3 friends that got piercings there that went fine. But as my new piercer says, some people can heal anything. The studio is not very well-lit, and it just doesn't give you a sense of ""cleanness"" at all. There were a bunch of stuck-up kids there with unhappy looking piercings just hanging out all over the place, and the piercer didn't even give me any kind of jewelry options. The placement of my piercings was ALRIGHT, but after going to an actual APP certified piercer, I was told that they could have been pierced deeper. The jewelry that was in my nipples was some of the worst quality I've ever seen. I had to have the jewelry swapped out way before it should have been, cos I probably would have had way more problems if I kept East Coast's jewelry in. It was some sort of VERY low quality silver, curved barbells (which aren't good for nipples anyways, despite the material) and the worst part was that it was externally threaded. The aftercare instructions I received were also very off. I don't know how their tattoo work is, but definitely do not go here for piercings unless you want them to have wonky placement, terrible jewelry, and get overcharged anyways. Pros: the piercer was polite/made me feel comfortable Cons: TERRIBLE jewelry quality/ questionable cleanliness more

Got my frist tattoo there 1/22/2009

I got my ear piecered and my first tattoo there and they both came out really good and clean. i would go back again for another tattoo. more

A Hidden Gem with Great Service 8/21/2008

When one of my friends came home from college for a short while in the summer, I knew I had to plan our annual girls day out, complete with tattoos. I was trying to find a tattoo place that was not only decent priced, but could take us in short notice. The original plan was Federall Hill Tattoo, who were nice as can be, but completely booked. My search continued to East Coast Tattoo and Body Piercing. Pros: everything! Cons: you might want to bring some extra cash for the nearby parking lot because street parking is iffy more
