This is the worst tattoo/piercing experience I have ever had. Greg was the surly and snarky individual tasked to pierce my nose, and when I showed him where I would like to have it pierced, he insisted that it was the incorrect spot and marked a different location. I agreed to his placement, trusting his wisdom, but several hours later decided that it wasn't flattering as far forward as he had pierced it and that I would like to have it done in the spot I'd originally requested. When I called to inquire if he would perform said service, he was disrespectful, unprofessional and childish, falsely claiming to have verified with me "100 times" where it would be pierced (he showed it to me once as he rushed me through the job), and generally acted like an ignorant twit. I would not recommend this location to ANYONE coming to or living in Asheville, unless they want to pay to be treated horribly and have their wants and needs disregarded.

The people who work at empire are fantastic! their portfolios where full of great custom tattoos that they had drawn so i knew that getting a small flower on my foot would be no problem. the were extremley helpfull with the flower. i had no idea how many diffrent ways and flowers i could get! but it was awsome, they made sure i got exactly what i wanted. and its better than i could have imagined. i plan on getting more. the shop is great. and all the jewelry just made me want to get everything pierced just so i could wear the jewelry! THANK YOU EMPIRE!!!!

I searched all over town and did my research and this shop by far is the best. The studio is amazing! They dont just have flash but artwork all over the walls. The Artists portfolios are immaculate. armbands to bodysuits. Very nice guys. no overblown egos like the other shops. They have tons of Jewelry like i have never seen before. Very chill atmosphere. They dont over charge or over inflate their prices. Dont take my word for it check it out and you wont be sorry!

I've only had ink done by Jeremy, which is an excellent artist, but any time im ever asked "Where's a good place to get a tattoo?" the very first place i say is empire. For western nc i think the whole crew there is top notch and is by far the best place to go.
