It doesnt matter because Cincy Tattoo is in a slow dead spiral and will be out of business in a year... Nothing but a group of losers left there since the real artists left...

If Mike and Jesse suck so bad, then why did Cincy Tatt keep them there for nearly a decade?! When they left, 90% of the clients followed them to the new shop. Rock on Avalon, your president supports you.

Avalon Tattoo & Piercing is the best shop in Cincinnati. I trust everybody there to do my pieces, down to the apprentices. Jesse and Mike are the best! As soon as you walk in, you immediately feel at ease, whether you're getting your first tattoo or getting your 100th tattoo. The shop is one big happy family, and it's the sorta place you can hang out and watch some excellent work being done. Since May 2nd, when the shop officially opened with their Grand Opening Party, and their permanent $20 Body Piercings, they've been headed to the top. Cincinnati Tattoo is a staple in Cincinnati BECAUSE of Mike & Jesse.(Or maybe it's because it became a staple due to naming the shop after the city it was located in. I must say, very clever, right? Ugh.) The owner of Cincinnati has done nothing but spread rumors and slander about Avalon Tattoo because he's pissed off that everybody left him, leaving the worst artists at Cincinnati Tattoo to pick up the pieces. No doubt in less than a year's time, Cincinnati Tattoo will no longer be a staple in the West Side. AValon Tattoo has become SO successful in the West Side, there's been some noise of acquiring a small shop in Mount Washington that opened up eight months ago called American Anchor Tattoo. American Anchor Tattoo will become Avalon's sister shop, and undoubtedly will be the next big thing to hit Beechmont Avenue. For more info on the shop, how well they're doing, and if you want some ink or piercings that you'll be proud to wear and say, "I got this at Avalon Tattoo!", just visit www.myspace.com/avalontattooandpiercing

I went to Avalon yesterday and was very pleased with the staff there and the tattoo I received. I am definitely recommending them to all my friends. I checked around at some of the surrounding tattoo parlors, and there prices were quite a bit higher, espeically on piercings.

Uh yeah they WERE IN the shop at NIGHT just like everyone who works there until closing.... That;s pretty 2 faced about the person you are speaking up, most of you probably were in there talking with him most of the time before Mike and Jessee split. I was there today and had beautiful work done by CARL as always...and the place was packed. Actually it is a more refreshing atmosphere with mew faces . Afraid to say JAkE"S name?? WHY??? Doesn't matter what gossip slandering crap is slung on here or in avalon, Cincinnati Tattoo is a CLEAN shop and good artists. ADVICE to anyone reading this and may be searching for a good place to go ...I would suggest checking a few shops out and ultimately the customer will decide where they want to get their work done. Ask questions...look at their work and watch some work being done to see if everything is sterile . My opinion is I WILL recommend www.cincinnatitattoo.com to anyone and I DO get asked alot about my MANY tattoos.

I agree that any client should take a look at the work being done from the shop they are going to and others. It is a permanent decision. Carl is a good tattoo artist but there are a lot of new things to be brought to the tattoo table these days and Carl is not the one to do it.

I support Cincinnati Tattoo & Piercing. I went in for a tattoo and a jacobs ladder and was very pleased with the service. The wind bars Carl put on me were great! They go awesome with my mullett and lynard skynard t-shirt! My sis really liked the work. When I got my jacobs ladder, Jake held my weiner with just enough grip to get it firm, but not too hard so Carl could penetrate the shaft with his stiff needles. Thanks for the happy ending Carl and Jake! You guys Rock!!! and Zeppelin rules!!!!

Actually, there were a lot of complaints from the better business bureau about jake's behavior towards clients and the board of health inspector. As for all the trash talking going on here, if Cincinnati Tattoo wasn't so beat up over everything completely changing, they wouldn't even be going through all this. If the artists at Avalon were/are so bad, then WHY did Carl keep them employed for so long? Granted, Jake is a good body piercer (I have had a few from him), it's usually a preference on personality and presentation; which, my mom didn't like Jake piercing me mostly because he hit on me blatantly and his appearance. It's just a matter of preference.

and neither am i a "teeny bopper bimbo follower,"as you so crudely put it. people have the choice to like who they do, and as for things being stolen, prove Jesse actually stole anything? as far as i know with the tattoo industry, almost everything pretty much looks the same from almost EVERY supplier. I know that standard jewelry all looks the same at least. as far as this goes, i think all the bad-mouthing over this is dumb. let people pick what they want and lets try to keep personal "business drama" where it's supposed to be (in the mouths of the ones actually in it" :) kthnx

Trust me they are NOT beat up over 2 people leaving. The new faces in there are a good thing and lots of work is getting done. There's nothing wrong with wanting to venture out and open your own business...it's HOW you go about bit though. You don't hurt others by stealing shop things to put in your own business ans the list goes on, so karma WILL catch up. I think all this crap talk on Carl and Jake should be said to their face...honestly, everything /opinion I have expressed I would NOT be afraid to tell Jesse especially. I'm not one of his little teeny bopper bimbo followers! <quoted text>

Ok, this is retarded people. It was fun for a moment. Tatoogirl... GET A LIFE!!! This whole thread started because a nice young woman posted a compliment to the work she received at Avalon one weekend. I recall her very well, she was a nervous wreck when she came in and she was quickly placed at ease and had a huge smile when all was said and done. So, SHUT UP! No one cares about your loud mouth ranting! If you love Carl so much, GREAT, keep going there, we dont need you anyway. So quit coming on here defending your daddy or sugar daddy whichever he is.
If you want to run around talking about the supposed crimes commited, get your facts straight. Carl already ran his mouth all over town about this crap, so it's not news to anyone in the tattoo industry that Carl has sunk to yet another new low by making false acquisations. He is threatened by the new business, he has said that repeatedly to people and he has nothing to go on, no proof, just false acquisations. If you want to talk theft... 90% of the work he is trying to claim on his website belongs to other people who are NOT artists at his shop. Plus he keeps pics of Mike, Jesse, and Alexis on there... hmmmm
Anyway, like I said, this was fun for a minute. People, if you want a tattoo, I recommend Avalon Tattoo and piercing. Great Artists, clean shop, art degrees, many years of experience and more. It is a great family environment where everyone has the others back. There is food and drink available, video games while you are waiting, and more. If you want, go check it out at http://www.avalon-tattoo.com and then come in and check it out, if you are not pleased, move on down the road, thats the beauty of America... CHOICE!! Now we all know who tattoogirl likes and who Rick likes, hopefully these two people will bow out and let this go back to being a comment thread and not a stupid argument.
