I had a 4 hr dual shoulder tattoo there and a cartilidge pierce a few years back, and my sister had a tattoo and a tongue piercing and we recommended a friend who got a back tattoo. This is definitely a great place to go to. It was so accomodating that I asked the guy who tattoo'd me to play a Korn CD he had while he tat'd and he was like definitely, which is very cool. I'll definitely go check them out again when I get my next tattoo.

To respond to Vanessa, First the Shop isn't owned by Stacey any more and she no longer works here. Second, in order to pierce a tongue you have to have a hole put in your tongue, the odds that you have a hole still if you took it out is a lie the body heals ALL those membranes so quickly that the chances of it being open 24hrs is slim to none. Third, I have a feeling what REALLY is going on is that we refused to do anything on you, and now you pissed. so grow up and get a life.
