i had an artist that DID NOT know what he was doing. He took 7 hours to do 3 small tattoos. 2 out of 3 of them got infected. The way they told me to take care of them was not like anything I had ever heard (and I've been to alot of shops). They poured staight alcohol on all of the tattoos, dried them right out. Told you to use lotion on them, and that just made my tattoo worse. They said A&D would pull the color out. The dude who did it was on his cell phone the whole time he was working on me, and he needed more breaks than I did!! He charged me way more than he said he was going to, and i still had to have them redone. The only way I would go back there is if I had been going there for years and I had good results with the owner that did it (it wasn't the owner who did me). My tattoo was a week old, and it looked like it had been there for 50 years because of all the color that had been pulled off, and the bleeding it had done. They use a dry kleenex to wipe off the excess ink (which hurts like hell), and they don't cover it when they're done. My recommendation? DON"T DO IT!!!!
