E.J. is the best. Not only was he completely understanding about my stupid bank locking my account and being just a little short of what he deserved, but I got a dream catcher, which he said he had never even drawn before, and it's seriously the best dream catcher i've ever seen. SO glad its mine. He made me feel comfortable and didn't make me awkwardly sit there silently. Plus, he's an AMAZING artist. Which is really what counts the most. I will definitely be going back to him next time. If you go here, request him!
couldn't be happier! – I got one tattoo and a new nose stud at Blue Flame. I'm treated like family, and was given excellent follow-care information. I have since referred many friends to Blue Flame, not ONE of which was less than 100% satisfied. Did I mention the prices are quite reasonable as well? I LOVE BLUE FLAME AND ERROL, the owner! Don't forget t check out the restrooms while you're there! :)
Addicted – I happened upon Blue Flame by a friends recommendation back in 2009-ish. I loved my experience there and have been back for work three times since, and taken my husband in for work. They take time here to consider your art, your budget and what would look best on you. I work at a spa and know what State Board looks for in sanitation and BF is top notch! We always see Errol, but everyone at the shop is friendly. It feels like family here. I recommend all my clients who compliment my work to BF!
Didnt want to do my work – I came in with Trust thyself and they refused to do it after I have gotten at least three other pieces from here. All of which are pretty good with clean lines but they are spotty and I am terrified to go in and ask for a touchup. I don't know what is with the attitude here. The work is good but I am not paying to be uncomfortable. They were rude to me on Friday for the last time. Sorry.
happy with the tattoo, but not the service – I really wanted to like my experience there. The store looks amazing, the people at the front desk were great, friendly, sweet.
I do like my tattoo - its just what I wanted and he did a good job - but maybe its because I'm a middle-aged mom, not a hot young chick, but the person doing my tattoo barely acknowledged my presence the entire time I was there. It was really awkward!.
I had to go back to get it touched up a bit since the color was spotty after healing and it was the same situation! He was pleasant enough when he greeted me, but barely spoke to me while working and really didn't fix the color correctly. Its like he couldn't wait to be finished.
I'd go again but definitely get another artist. I've read the reviews, and others seem to really like him, so I'll just chalk it up to him being age-ist. Another older friend went there and got a different artist and she had a super positive experience so I won't give up on them completely.
Extremely Friendly! – I just had my nose pierced at blue flame yesterday. Jason was my piercer and he did an excellent job. He walked through all of the steps of aftercare with my mom and I before he pierced me. We had to wait a little while but it was worth it. He has answered so many of my questions through email and has been very understading with me through the whole process. The shop looks great. It is very clean with private rooms and it is very stylish looking. I would definantly reccomend Jason for any piercings. If I ever get another I will definantly go back to him. Thanks blue flame!
Excellent Customer Service & Kick A** Atmosphere – This studio is one of the cleanest places I have ever seen. When you walk in you are helped right away, the desk people can answer any questions you have right off the bat. What I liked was that the artists don't seem like you are wasting their time, they pay full attention to you, and try to understand what you are looking for, instead of sending you to the flash books for ideas. I came out of the shop with a beautiful tattoo that couldn't have been done any better
HOLY AWESOME!!!!!

My best friend go tattooed by neal while i was getting inked and he was sooo funny! i love all my new friends, thanks so much blue flame! perfect place for 1st timers or seasoned veterans~
My Piercings Have Found A Home..... – I don't know were some of the other reviewers went but it could not have been Blue Flame. The have been friendlily, helpful and knowledgeable. I went in after having a bad experience and was a little nervous. I went in yesterday and spoke to Ashley. I told her that my bar was too long and I wanted to change it out. She was very understanding and said the the length of the bar I had was excessive. I told her I was going to come back to see about some more piercings. Well I went back today and talk to Jason who is sweet and loves piercing as much as I love getting pierced. The prices where below what I paid at my last place and the jewelry selection is much better. All in all a great experience.
