Best

I can just say now, south side tattoo is the fricken BEST! in my opinion. I first went to go get my belly button pierced and i was so afraid because i had it done before and it to...

Worst

I decided on a tattoo that i wanted and wanted it immediately. I was able to walk in on a Thursday night and get inked. It was kind of a crappy experience. I love my tattoo, ...

Best Tattoo Shop! 5/14/2008

this place is the best i now have 6 tattoos and the last 2 i got here! The color hasn't faded in over 3 years! I think if you are gonna have a permanent piece of art on your body you get what you pay for and I'd rather pay a little more and know I'm getting the best there is!!!!! I recommend them to everyone! Pros: best artwork and cleanliness Cons: avoid on saturday evenings without an appointment!!! more

bad wouldnt recomend this place 4/8/2008

Everyone in this place were very rude. The artist wouldnt even come out and talk to us. The counter girl was a very rude. Everything in the shop was very un organized and the tattoos were very over priced, The only way that I would recomend this place would be if u wanted to feel unappreciated and get ripped off. They are luck to get 1 star Pros: therre are no pros to going to this placce Cons: very unprofessional eviorment more

Awesome Experience 3/18/2008

I had my first tattoo done at South Side Tattoo and it was a great experience. I had such high hopes for how it would turn out that I knew it wouldn't be what I expected. Well, it wasn't--it was even better! Mike did mine and I'm very glad he did. Not only does it look great, but he made me feel comfortable, made enjoyable conversation, and also was very professional and helpful. I can't praise him or the place enough. Pros: Skill, atmosphere, professional treatment Cons: Wait time, price more

Fantastic place 2/22/2008

Southside Tattoo is THE place to go for inking. My best friend and I just got tats there yesterday, and we are just giddy about the artwork and service we received. Veronica did mine, and Joe did my friend's. It was the first tat for my friend (my second), and she was impressed with the cleanliness and relaxed atmosphere. My tattoo is very unique and required a lot of tedious work. Veronica had the patience of a saint in making sure that it was going to be exactly what I wanted. The prices may seem high to some, but I feel you get what you pay for. I got quality artwork and was very willing to pay the price. You can find cheaper, but not better!!! If it's not Southside Tattoo, it's just ink. more

EVERY MALE I ENCOUNTERED THAT WORKS HERE IS LAZY AND HAS VERY BAD JUDGEMENT. 4/4/2007

I went to get a tattoo covered up. Had great service the few times I came here before. Not so much this time! I went on a Friday night and waited for 2 hours. I stepped outside for 20 min and told the ppl before me I was going outside in case the guy, Greg, asked. I came back in and A HALF HOUR LATER AFTER I APPROACHED HIM, Greg said he thought I had left and that I would have to come back. So I wasted my Friday night. I go back in Saturday morning and get seen pretty quickly. They draw up the bear paw that is supposed to cover my existing tattoo. Veronica comes out and says the tattoo I want is too big and will look goofy but I really want a bear paw. I suggest a different shape and she suggests maybe 2 paws will look good and I say GREAT! So then Mike, who is going to do my tattoo, comes out with a drawing of one paw? Re-shaped so it will fit but not be too big. Which is what I originally wanted. So we go down. He is blasting heavy metal (which makes me want to turn around and bash his face in halfway through his tattooing). Anyhow, when he sticks the imprint on my back, it looks a little off to me but I can't place why. He says that the chin of the wolf (my old tattoo) is sticking out the bottom, so he had to ""go down further"". What that ends up meaning is that instead of re-drawing the tattoo or adjusting it or even starting the tattoo down further, he tattooed a random BUMP on the bottom of the bear paw to cover ONLY the chin! I looked briefly before leaving and left (in pain) but when I noticed it at home, I FREAKED. I called about getting this fixed & the guy who answered the phone COULDNT EVEN REITERATE TO MIKE WHAT MY PROBLEM WAS WORD FOR WORD. He told Mike I wanted it to look LESS like a bear paw? I asked to talk to Veronica, and called another day and left her a message - no dice. YOU WERE BETTER WITHOUT THE BOYS, SS TATTOO. PS: Don't let em give you runaround about making an appt - there's a $50 deposit - PAY IT & MAKE ONE! Pros: The waiting room was clean and had great music going on, Veronica is hands down the best tattoo artist EVER. Cons: No parking - horrendous wait time - they give you the runaround about everything but taking your money - the men are downright vapid - not nearly as ""female friendly"" as they used to be. more

South Side Tattoo is by far the best.... 1/12/2007

I was visiting some friends in Pittsburgh, PA, when I decided it was time for me to get the nose piercing I have been wanting for a loooonng time.l My friend Lisa went to South Side Tattoo a few years ago for her nose piercing and if she trusted them, so did I. I was amazed when I walked in. Very nice atmosphere, very clean and friendly staff. I signed all the needed paperwork and waited. My friend Becky had a lsybug added onto her tattoo by Veronica Ray and I have to say if I ever get a tattoo, I'll go to Veronica Ray at South SIde Tattoo!! Jewels did my piercing and, yeah it hurt for a moment, but taht was all. She did a great job telling me how to care for it! Although I live in Ohio, I think whenever I want a piercing or tattoo, I'll have to visit good 'ol Pittsburgh, PA and go to South Side Tattoo!! Pretty good prices too!! Pros: The best by far!! Cons: There may be a wait, but it well worth it!!! more
