I have never written a review of a business in my entire life, but South Side Tattoo angered me to the extent of becoming a city search member in order to write them a bad review.\r
I took the time out to have two prior consultations with a receptionist there about my tattoo and provided them with a few drawings to work off at least 2 weeks prior to the appointment time I reserved by putting a 50 dollar deposit down. When I arrived at South Side Tattoo at my designated appointment time, the busy, off putting receptionist had no idea who i was, and proceeded to tell me they had lost the drawings I gave to them and had no drawings ready to show me. I remained patient, understanding they are a popular business and these things happen. Half an hour later she recovers the drawings, but admits they had been shown to tattoo artists who WERE NOT scheduled to work that day. Then the receptionist began ferrying the worst, messiest, most childlike drawings I had ever seen back and forth between some far off mysterious artist in the back and myself. When I decided after TWO HOURS, (and finally, after begging, getting to speak to the actual artist) that it wasn't getting any better, and they were being so rude to me I'd had enough, I canceled and left. I then had to fight with South Side tattoo for 2 weeks to get my 50 dollar deposit back for the appointment they weren't prepared for, they treated me like trash, and even stooped as low as insulting my tattoo without even seeing it. They are the opposite of ""the customers always right"". I will never recommend that business to anyone ever again, neither will anyone I know.
Cons: totally overpriced!
