fyi artist that started their career at castle of color: chad sinkhorn(great guy)
Wrong!!! Chad owns Studio Ink in Lex and Danville

If you are looking at tattoos based on price and not the artists work I am sorry you are going to get what you pay for. crappy ink end of story

Underground Ink. I have 9 tattoos all from different local artists over the years. Mike at underground did my last 2 (fairly large pieces) and they are by far the best. His rates are fair (remember, you get what you pay for in most cases). If you want a cheap tattoo, by all means, go see a cheap artist. I'm not going to use this board to disparage anyone, but there are plenty out there in the Lexington and aurrounding areas. Scott, the owner of Underground, also does amazing work. He just finished up a full sleeve (shoulder to wrist) on a friend of mine and it turned out awesome! Just remember, opinions are like a$$holes, everyone has one

That sucks for her lol I haven't seen anyone from there in a long time and I didn't deal with those "politics" either (lol if ya know what I mean) so I was just stating an opinion about a shop I used to know a little something about, bottom line I have to agree with the poster that said look more at the individual artists work rather than the shop itself because if the artist isn't talented and clean then you are gonna get sick and you're gonna have to live with a busted up tat that you gotta with for the rest of your life. Thanks for the info and feedback though!:) PS. Lmao to the sullen girls thing I always wondered what the hell that whole title was about til I seen their website and if that is a proud title to wear then I guess I'd have to stay miserable cause there is just no way in hell! Thanks again
yea robert allen walters want to jail they are just a shop to sell drugs not tat dont go there to get a tat only go there to get higth lol

hey just saying castle of color does really good work and they dont talk down other stores. they are more interested in making the whole image and industry better for everyone... lets face it there are alot of good artists out there but greg at c.o.c. has given a bunch of them a start in the business thats the facts man. just sayin.. sara brian jeremy drew and greg are really talented... although i dont think greg is actually tattooing a whole lot these days. but you can book an appt with him but you may have to wait a week or so.. his daughter sara is about the best i have ever seen and hands down the best around here, I THINK. HER PORTFOLIO and many many awards back me up. no one in ky can touch her color work. period

fyi artist that started their career at castle of color: chad sinkhorn(great guy) these started and were fired: tommy ray, chris, and keith at bleed blue. shawn kirkpatrick at hpnotic, conn craig at your design or mine, joe at bleed blue also fired, scott at horseshoe yep history! mike fitzpatrick at that rat hole on harrodsburg road and many others. just sayin" get all the facts before your inked. its more than laying the ink. a bunch can do a great job at that. hows the attitudes, the work ethics the professionalism the courtesy, and the customer treatment.... to me the best PROFESSIONAL ARTISTS are at castle of color. if your a f*ck up they wont keep you no matter how good you are. hows that for professionalism?
well...all of you can get work from who you want but as for this post...I happen to be joe and I was certainly not fired from castle of color...I also personally know most of the other artists mentioned and none of them were fired sounds like you are the one with crooked facts. in tattooing portfolios and experience are the only factors that make a difference at all...lets not spread lies about people we don't know. Your all already on the internet (((GO TO THE WEBSITES OF THE ARTIST YOUR INTERESTED IN AND LOOK AT THE FUCKING PORTFOLIO)))

P.S. we all left castle of color (8 yrs ago) because we value our health and the health of our customers...think about it

Stu at bleed blue!!!! He is AWESOME & his color is really good. They aren't cheap, but you get what you pay for with tattoos, and I would rather pay more money and have a really good tattoo than get one for cheap and be stuck with something ugly for the rest of my life. I have many tatts, and have been tatted by 4 different artist in Lexington. Stu has done 3 of mine, and they are all perfect. Check out his work here:

I saw a girls tattoos & she told me she had them done at Castle Of Color on Nicholasville Rd. by the Nissan dealership. I went there & got not only a Great tattoo but their prices were outstanding. I was really surprised that they were so reasonable. The guy that did mine was patient & helpful. He did an awesome job & for almost $100 less that I thought I would end up paying. For any future tattoos I will definitely be going there!
