scary – Ya this place sucks big time! I had to get my tattoo fixed at another shop.
Wisemagic Tattoo- WORST PLACE EVER – So I go to get a piercing. But when I first entered the shop the first girl in front tattooing looked like she was falling asleep as she tattooed and her speech was slurred. She also was complaining about a wound in her stomach oozing. Cleanly? I dont think so. Then a heavy set guy with giant earlobes came and talked to me and not only was he very abrasive and disinterested, he REEKED of marijuana. I went across the street to immortal art.
Expectations too high – It has been a while since I've been to Wisemagic, but just got some more work done to correct what I had done there and thought I should comment on my Wisemagic experience. I'll be honest up front, I should have known better and walked out when it didn't feel right talking with Mark. I take partial blame, allowing myself to get tattooed by someone I was not sure about. After talking with him the first time, he had an idea of what I wanted and I set an appointment. When I showed up for the appointment, his sketch was clearly last minute and not what I really had in mind. I had a photo of what I was interested in and gave it him to work from. In hindsight, here is where I should have walked out. He seemed.... bothered by my being there. He quickly did a sketch and came back to me with something on first glance looked only OK, but I thought he might make it work. I said it would work and he sat me down and quickly tagged it on on my arm. I got a quick look at it and made a few comments about what I was hoping for. In hindsight that was the second time I should have walked out. So you don't think I was one of "those" customers, I have had tattoos before and have never had a problem talking with the artist to make sure we are on the same page. Well, after he went to work we started having a conversation. After looking at my tattoo, I believe he was distracted and just did a poor job overall. I ended up with a tattoo I have had to get work done on twice more to make it presentable. I felt like I was rushed through and taken advantage of. Is he a good artist? Don't know, I didn't see it. The artwork (eagle) I wanted was clearly not up his alley and I wish he would have admitted it up front. Why did I go to him? I went with what I saw of the photos of his work and was expecting good things. My suggestion- Walk out if it doesn't feel right.
best tattoo parlor period! – been going there for years. nothing but the best artists work there. amazing people that do great work and are extreamly nice.
Cocky artists that shouldnt be cocky – Sadly I listened to a friend of mine who told me to go to wisemagic because thats where she got hers. Bad idea. Hers was all black line work. Mine involved colors, and actual pictures. The artist I delt with got upset with me when I explained to him that the design he drew up after mine wasnt symetrical the same way mine was and got al huffy when he had to redraw it. his second attempt was much better. Sadly, after having the tattoo done by him, I realized it still wasnt symetrical. Overall, the shop is your average craptastic generic tattoo parlor. I wish, I wish, I WISH I had gone to Divinity even if is more pricey. Do yourselves a favor and spend the extra cash and go there.
