Timmy did my lip piercing a couple years ago and I still absolutely LOVE it! He was so sweet and gentle! He made me laugh and reassured me that I would be just fine. I was at Taboo Tattoo for a total of 5 minutes TOPS. The piercing itself took maybe 30 seconds, including putting in the jewelry. My lip never got infected and it was very reasonably priced! I only had $30, so that's all they took. They didn't even charge me for the $40 piece of jewelry they put in. I went back a couple month later to get my original lip ring taken out and to put a new, clean libret in. Timmy checked for infection and then changed my piercing and all I paid for was the $10 libret. I love Taboo and I am DEFINITELY going back to get my other piercings done!! :)

I got a tattoo of a pair of scissors on my neck from J-DUB less than a week ago and it has already completely healed. I have lots of tatts and I must say that I am probably the most happy I have ever been with one. He was light handed and fast, I expected it to be excruciatingly painful on my neck but he was awesome and it barely hurt at all. I would definitely recommend him to anyone I know and will for sure be using him for all of my future work!

Went here a few months ago to get my tongue pierced. I had done research on several different places and was referred to here by a friend of mine. I read the reviews and everyone had great things to say about it. I went and had Tim do my piercing and he was very cool about the whole thing. Everything there was steril and the place looked clean all around. The people were great and made me feel really comfortable. It was a quick process and he went over everything I needed to know about the cleaning and possible side effects of getting pierced. He also told me a few tricks to help with possible swelling. I plan on getting another tat plus another piercing, I will definitely be going back here to get my work done.

I came here to get a tattoo with no idea what I wanted, but thanks to Flex this guy is the man! Not only did he custom design a tattoo for me he didn't break my bank either. This shop was very cool! Very clean and professional (they did win best of Dallas in the past) So far this is my new home for tattoos and I recommend you do the same. Flex is amazing but I checked out some of Biggs' work too and he is pretty amazing as well this shop is so good it doesn't matter who you see cause your gonna get a guaranteed ""taboo"" tattoo which speak for themselves.....

My friend & I went in to get piercings, she got her lip done & I did my tragus.. Tim pierced us both & was awesome right from the get-go right when we walked in. He made us laugh which made us really comfortable. I am definitely going here again!

The only place I'd go for a piercing. Very clean and a professional staff. Tim walked us through the piercing proceedures and care before the piercing explaining everything in great length. (My daughters 1st piercing) He really made us feel very comfortable the proceedure, and he did a fantastic job. My daughter is extremely happy with her piercing! I would recommend Tim @ Taboo Tattoo to every one!!!

I had an industrial ear piercing done at another place, but five days later it was swollen and inflamed. Of course, the place I had gone to was closed, so I called Tim at Taboo. He told me to come over. When I got there, he knew exactly what had happened: my sensitive skin had a reaction to the harsh soap I'd been given by the original piercer, and my bar was too short. He removed the old bar, cleaned my ear, put in a new bar, and gave me gentler care instructions. He cracked jokes and didn't say anything negative about the place I'd gotten my piercing. And in the end, he didn't charge me anything - not even for the new jewelry! He said I could pay him by getting my next piercing there and recommending him to my friends. So here you go! Tim is high class all the way, and I'd recommend him to anyone.

I had a lizard put on my shoulder by CLYNT COSTLY for $250 and it's horrible!!! I was on vacation when i had it done and I'll NEVER do that again! Tattooist always say "You can add but you can't take away" well exactly! The lizard is rainbow striped when i wanted it to gradually change and the legs are not proportionate to the arms. There is no fading from one color to the next (which is what i wanted). He asked if i wanted shadowing to make it pop out. At the time i trusted his judgment and said "whatever makes it look best"and he put the shading. Because the lizard wasn't drawn to look three dimensional the shadowing makes it look wrong. He also made a blatent mistake! The shadowing for the head was by the leg and he put the shadowing of the tongue right next to the actual tongue. He put pigment coloring over where he made a mistake but the red never went away. There's liability when you get a tattoo and we are going through with suing the tattoo shop because of how horrible it turned out. I am so upset from the experience that I wont get another tattoo again because any idiot can pick up a tattoo gun and i found that out the hard way! He was blaring Tom Petty and buzzing the tattoo gun to the beat the entire time. I wonder if they drug test at this tattoo shop because he had to be on something to ruin my dream of having an awesome tattoo. I am embarassed of it and don't want to show it off. This shouldn't be the case considering how much i spent. I'm back home in WA now and I'm being told that it will cost the same amount i paid in the first place just to get it fixed. CLYNT COSTLY must take tattooing as a joke based on what my tattoo looks like and I'm not laughing. There have been 10 different tattooist who have looked at my tattoo and every one has shook their head at how terrible it looks and it upsets me that they 'laugh at my pain' so to speak. He does not deserve to have a job.
Just a moment...
