Absolutely Fantastic!!! – I have never been in a tattoo shop where the employees were so kind and genuinely cared about my experience with them. I got my first tattoo with them and have gone back 5 times since and have had the same amazing customer service and awesome artistic talent put into my tattoo each time. I cant rave enough about the quality of work thats coming outta Raleigh s best tattoo shop... Thanks Ernie and Mike... you rock. and thanks to the girls in the front for being so sweet and fun
Awesome – I went in last Friday to get a tattoo i already had fixed. They had great customer service and wer very nice!!! I was in there no time before they got my paper work done and had me in the chair working on my tattoo. It was my first time going there and i definitely plan on going back for all my work in the future. Byron fixed my tattoo and he was very good! I love the way my tattoo turned out this time!!! I will definitely be recommending Warlock's to all my friends!!!
Top notch tattoos – Went in on Sunday of memorial weekend. Showed Ernie my design. He gave me some options and information on how to make it work. He gave me a great price and only took an hour. For this design I was expecting at least 2 hours and twice the price, it was a celtic hound with the tail forming an intricate celtic knot and some gaelic writing. The work was perfect and looks great. This place was professional at least as professional as you get in a tattoo shop. The people were nice and everything went smoothly. I was in and out in an 1.5 hours with the paperwork, payment and tattoo. Ernie did a great job, I can't comment on any of the other tattoo artists but I recommend Ernie to anyone.
Don't get caught up in the hype – Went to get my second tattoo here like 8 months ago. Came in with a friend when it was slow. The person who greeted us was a little obnoxious (but really what can you expect in a tat shop). However, she was rude and talked down to us (maybe she was just having a bad day- but this wasn't my first time in a tattoo shop). The owner was nice and the person we talked with about designs was knowledgeable. Made an appointment to come back expecting for the same person to do the actual tattoo... that's a joke. Apparently at the time they were having some people leave or something or getting new people (not sure which) but either way none of them were particularly nice. Yes I get that i'm not your typical person (i'm a little more classic on the outside) but with 9 different piercings and a large piece on my back it was irritating to be talked to like I didn't belong there. The guy who ended up doing my tattoo kept wanting to take breaks (wasn't very friendly either- and him answering his phone while doing my tattoo had me wanting to smack him and leave!) and he also didn't put in the final white to finish the tat. It's a good piece and the price was on the steeper side but not too bad. However, only go here if you want to be treated like you don't know anything about tattoos or what you want and what looks good. I'm giving them 2 stars because maybe I just came at a transitional time, but honestly I won't be going back or ever refer anyone to them. Getting a tattoo is pretty permanent and it'd would have been nice if they hadn't treated me like a prep school dumb blonde. Thanks for the decent tattoo Warlock's but I won't be back because your service sucks.
Extremely Happy – I recently went in for a touch up on a tattoo that i got a year ago from No Regrets in raliegh. No Regrets did a horrible job and over charged me. went into Warlocks and immediately was talking to the owner. He was extremely nice and helped me right away. I was there for maybe 10 min before he had me in the chair getting tattooed. The touch up looks absolutely amazing. I went from just liking my tattoo to absolutely loving it. If you want a place that has great customer service and friendly good tattoists go here! Id definitly recommend Byron and will be going there for my future tattoos!
Fabulous! – Warlocks is the best shop in the Triangle. Definately not your typical flash shop. Not only do they have excellent tattoo artists & piercers they are friendly & clean. Never have had a poor experience. I love that they are open 7 days a week for piercings & tattoos! I have had 9 large tattoos there & many piercings. I have no doubt that they will keep up the good work.
VERY BAD customer service from Owner – Called about a tattoo. Not my first. I made an appointment to see Byron the owner. I thought I would be talking with Byron when I got there. I was introduced to him and he didn't even acknowledge me and push me off to some person who look like they just got out of prison. I talked with this person for 5 minutes and I could tell they knew very little about tattooing. I showed them my drawing and they said it would be difficult. It was a simple dragon armband. Well, they said they would look at it and draw it up and call me the next day. Well, that didn't happen, just as I told my son, that was with me, that they wouldn't call when we left the shop that night. You could tell they didn't give a hoot about me. It was 6PM at night and the shop was pretty empty. So where were all the tattoo artist shown on their web site. Please do yourself a favor and go to another shop. Their are a few real good ones in Raleigh but not this one. I did get my armband from a great guy near State and it looks wonderful and I was very glad I went there. Please stay out on this place if you know what's good for you.
Best in Town – I went today and got my second tattoo at Warlocks.
They are very professional and nice. They have thousands of beautiful tattoo's to choose from.
I highly recommend them!!!! A very clean place, too.
Great Place .....ask for Errol – I have had three tats done there...loved each one, but tried to have one removed, well the laser treatment scarred me real bad. I hated for people to see my arm/shoulder. I went and talked to Byron he said that they could cover it....he drew up a butterfly and some astract flowers. I went back checked it out and loved it. Went back a week later and Errol did the outline and some shadowing (due to scar tissue I had to do the outline then go back for color once healed). Errol did an AWESOME job! At first I was not comfortable but he and Byron quickly fixed that. I think it was my vervousness because I really wanted something that would hide the ugly site on my arm/shoulder.
I read some other comments and none of the times that I have been there did I feel like I was being treated rudely. I will go back if I get another and I would recommend that you check them out if you want a good, clean, and respectful place to go and get a tattoo. Thanks again Errol,,,,,see you in a few more weeks!!!!! I can't wait!!!!
Professional/Efficient/Fun – This was my second tattoo and it was on my butt cheeks. I'm a woman and Bobby was very professional and got my tat just right.Staff was pleasant and friendly. I'll go back for another!
