I got my piercings at this shop last fall. I ended up taking them out because I realized it wasn't what I wanted. The customer service was mello and made me feel at ease. The woman that did my piercings took a long time in describing what all it would take to clean my piercings and that yes, virginia, there will be pain. Lots of pain. She sterilized everything and we did have a private area. No peeking allowed. I really liked the atmosphere and recommend it to anyone. While I was there my neighbor was getting a tattoo of her dog on her wrist. The tattoo artist copied it from a photo of her dog and to say I was very impressed would be an understatement. He did a phenomenal job on her. He took his time and did great. No rushing. All in all I would recommend Ink Dependant Tattoo's to anyone.
