Definitely skip Lucky Bamboo - or rather, don't get your tattoo from Jared. I wanted a small tattoo and he acted like I was just wasting his time. He forgot about the appointment, arrived late and acted like I was a throw-away client. Very bad customer service - he didn't even bother to give after care instructions, even though he knew it was a first tattoo. Thankfully, the nice person at the front desk filled me in. His whole attitude was "let's just get this stupid thing over with." So of course, the tattoo itself was poorly done. Months later, I had another shop re-do my tattoo and the guy said the line work was sloppy and I was way overcharged for what I got.
The shop itself was clean and the other staff were very nice but stay away from the owner - he has no respect for the art.
AWESOME WORK!!!!! – I just had work done by Christina yesterday and she was awesome. I couldn't have been happier with the shop and work she provided. I visited many different shops in the Davis and Salt Lake County and this by far had the best feel from the time I walked in. They provided great help and guidence. I to have had work done in San Diego and this by FAR was a better experience. I can't wait for my next appointment. Thanks Christina I couldn't be happier....
Best Tatto shop in utah PERIOD!! – I have been to a lot of tattoo shops in utah and Lucky Bamboo is by far the best. The place is really nice on the inside-they put a lot of effort into making it relaxing inside. The staff is great-they will openly talk to you about anything-and answer any questions you have. The first time i went into Lucky Bamboo i wanted my sleeve fixed from the tattoo shop down the street-that place was a whole in the wall, with people who made it look like they just were into it for the money. Jarred happily looked at the tattoo and gave ideas to fix it and gave me a price that he would do it for. and now the finished product is amazing. The second time i went in there i wanted a pin up on my ribs-again Jarred looked at the area, i found my references that i wanted to use and he started-it took many sessions to complete it but now it looks amazing as well. This is the absolute best place in utah to get a tatoo, or peircing that i have been to in both San Diego and Utah!
Perfect For The Concerned – I had been debating a tattoo on my ankle for quite some time. I had a mishap with ink on my neck getting all screwed up, so I decided to be choosy on where I went. I called Lucky Bamboo to see about a consult, and they told me they could consult me right then if I wanted to. So I drove down there, it was like 8:30, explained to Kollin what I wanted.. where.. and I even had a couple very tiny pictures to give him an idea.
I informed him of the issue on my neck and he knew of my concerns. To my surprise he was able to work my hour long session in right then. I'm a wiggle worm and he was talking to me while I was getting tattooed and actually was very patient with all my questions and wiggling. He would simply stop and say "ok you're wiggling too much again", and I would collect myself and the work would continue on.I was never happier with a tattoo. The rosary on my ankle is still my favorite of my three. He even asked if it was okay if he did his own little touches and got my approval before just shading it however.
Anyways, about a week into using the Lucky Bamboo tattoo kit (best stuff ever by the way, smells yummy too!) my tattoo started to look a little weird, and I didn't know if it was normal or not. The only tattoo I had at that point was on the back of my neck. I was panicked. I called in, and Kollin told me to come on in. He came early from lunch, and sat down in a room with me (almost in tears) and looked at my foot.
Basically I was worried for nothing, but he assured me if it still wasn't turning out normal AFTER it healed, to come in and see, and he was happy I was concerned and stopped in. He was very adamant about saying "if there's a problem, I'd rather see it and know it's nothing than to have you brush it off and have it really be something."
I've never felt more comfortable and taken care of in a tattoo shop (I've had work done at over 5 places in the area). They even do follow up e-mails which shocked me, because most places don't follow up unless you come in with a problem. Tattoos are definitely fun to get and fun to have, but just like cars, you want to trust where you're getting them from.
As a clean freak, I'm impressed with their facility, and as a professional, I'm impressed with their staff to the highest degree.
Not to mention the good pricing on the tattoo and the aftercare kit. I was actually under what I thought I was going to spend.
Thanks Lucky Bamboo.
To the guy complaining about your deposit.
You've got to be kidding me.
They're not crooks or scam artists.
They're trying to do a good job, and they're succeeding.
Shame on you for trying to soil someone's good name.
Comment to the review below this! – This is the prime example (below) that you cant please everyone....isnt it funny how this comment is the only negative one. Yes we kept your deposit after spending many hours designing and drawing your piece which you did see drawing for(pieces of this nature dont happen over night). You wanted to cram a bunch of stuff in it that wouldnt go well with the piece so I started the new drawing which I told you I would have done by end of the week, you say ok....you show up before the end of the week angry that the drawing wasnt done and said you would go somewhere else! I apologize that you didnt get the service you wanted with me but sometimes it takes time to complete a piece of this size especially one as challenging as this, now if you had given me freedom on this piece it would have been completed quickly but the more demands on the piece the harder it is to get it done and have it look good. Last but not least....I did act like it wasnt a big deal....you came in and made a scene while I was tattooing a client and I was happy for you to take your business elsewhere.So please stop the lies and I strongly advise you to stop the slander....strongly!
P.S. you never even asked for your deposit back as I would have given it back to you!
DO NOT GO HERE!!! – I went into lucky bamboo, looking to get a chest piece and half sleeve. I had a few things I wanted to include in this tattoo. Since this is a custom tattoo shop, I thought I was in good hands. I explained to the owner/artist what I wanted to include in the piece and I would leave the rest up to him. He told me that it wouldn't be a problem, and that it would all be drawn up before my appointment so if I wanted any changes, he could do them on my appointment.
Everything sounded good, So I paid the $50 deposit and a few days later went in for my appointment, and told the assistant I was there for my appointment. The assistant went and told the owner that his appointment was there. The owner had no idea what he was talking about. So they checked the appointment book, and sure enough It was in there book. So the owner said to me, I have been busy and I forgot about you, I have nothing drawn up. I wasn't happy, but things happen and I said thats ok we can reschedule. He told me to come back in a week and he would have the art work done. So I went back in and, once again no art work.. He said that he was having a hard time including the things I wanted and thats why he didn't have anything done. I said ok, lets go a differant route that will be easier for you. We discussed what he was going to draw up, and once again he told me to come back in a week and he would have the art work done. So a week later I went in, and once again for the third week, no art work!!! He just rubbed it off like it was no big deal, and that it was ok to run a buisness like that.. So to make a long story short.. Do not go to this shop, they will take your $50 deposit and never produce any work!
