BEWARE of Extreme Lifestyles Tattoo shop in Imperial off 61/67. They were just on Fox 2 News for doing both shotty (horrible) tattoo work and tattooing minors. They are under investigation by Jeffco Police.

I have been getting tattoos for over 15 years. I happened to be in this shop with a friend looking for a new artist. I saw this minor in question. I watched the process carefully as I am bit OCD on cleaniness and procedure. The minor had someone acting as the guardian and everything looked to be done by the law, as in Missouri it is legal to tattoo a minor as long as they are with a legal guardian to sign the paperwork. Please research a bit more on the topic before trusting 100% what you hear, even if it is the news. By the way, "shotty" work can come out of ANY shop. We are human and all have bad days.

The owner of the shop is a registered sex offender and a habitual criminal. Beware!

steve you are so full of crap! i have had five tattoos done there and all by craig the owner you need to go crawl in your plastic bubble and panic! cause if i were to find you i would kick your ass, for talkin about my boy like that! all of my tatts are awesome and have zero flaws. if you have problems with their shop then don't get any work done there, but honestly his work is better than most of the shops in the STL area. so go F*** yourself and realize your opinion doesn't matter.

My fiance and I have had work done at this shop and the work was amazing!!!! The shop not to go to is Diablo in High Ridge. I got a tattoo there on my back and the scraed my back by going too deep. I know Craig and he did my tatt and my fiance's tatt. His work is amazing and trust me he is no sex offender, because I would not let a sex offender touch me. I have two children and I believe anyone sick enough to touch a child should have their shit cut off. So please get your facts straight before making false statements about someone...kepp it up and Craig will sue your ass for deflimation of character.....

I work for the board of directors on the Jefferson County Health department & I know for a fact that the proper legal filing 7 procedures are underway to remove Extreme Lifestyles from the business community. We have received numerous complaints about this business in regards to illegal minor tattooing from parents & middle school officials. As well as other health & safety issues still under investigation with the Sheriffs Department & county prosecutor. It is legal to tattoo a minor with parental consent, although the allegations towards Extreme Lifestyles were filed under a criminal investigation. And yes, the report on Craig & Extreme Lifestyles is in the archive section FOX2news.com

Ive gotten all my tattoos from Arron(owns Diablo Ink), & hes got the best tattooers in the whole county. He admitted he has had 2 people he had to let go over the years because they just wouldnt listen to what he was saying. One being Connie & the other BJ. Both these people work at other places now. The staff hes got now are the best. I went to high school with Arron so I dont want to come off as biased, but I and everyone I know goes there because they are the best. Thats good you go where you go & not saying your wrong, i just wanted to set the record straight.

You should really do your homework, he is a registered sex offender, maybe you should believe what you read, check the Highway Patrol's registered offender list.

Ok I have know Craig for some years. Yes he is a registered sex offender. The case is not the way it sounds. Many complaints have been made and I do not believe how that is possible. When I went to get my 1st tattoo at 16, i needed a gaurdian. That wasnt proof enough, and this is how it is done with everyone. You have to bring your birth certificate and your guardian and your license to prove that you are related. If not, tough shit. Give the guy a break he was 16 when those charges were made and it was with and ex girlfriend that was a bitch. His business is the only thing that keeps him going after his sister died. Everyone makes mistakes, Im sure u all have made them

I am interested in getting a new tattoo. Does anyone know if this shop uses new needles every time, or how they currently clean their needles? Also, how clean is the shop in general?

"registered sex offender"? What he is doing is this fine town. Send him packing to corrupt Panama City, Florida. They love sex offenders there!

Actually, Craig is a HORRIBLE tattoo artist. I've seen his work on some people and it wasn't pretty. It's known by people who know him or people just visiting the shop, that he likes to take pills and tattoo.. sometimes doing them at the same time. I know for a fact that he tattoos minors, preferably girls, and is extremely creepy about it. He is, in fact, a registered sex offender. Basically, if you want a tattoo, spend the extra cash and go somewhere nice, not some shitty shop in Imperial. Seriously, why defend white trash and their work. Just go somewhere professional.

You need to get your facts straight Steve and read my post at the bottom. You obviously don't know me, my shop, or the work that comes out of it. Or the truth for that matter. But I do not have a problem with someone speaking their oppinion. Everyone needs to be very careful on deciding where they are going to get their tattoo and what the tattoo is going to be. I'm just asking you to please come by and get to know me, my shop, and see my work for yourself befor you try to ruin my life anymore than other people already have. Step back and put yourself in my shoes.
