Nick Ferrell Sucks. Nuf said, He never works, lives off his mother. When he isnt sleeping from his drug indused stuper, he is getting raided by police (check out his facebook) or getting his ass kicked. Twice in less than 3 weeks! Seriously, local fking waste!!!

i dont care what yo people say about this guy but chris sutton is the best in town. so what if he takes his pain medication.
Yah Chris is good, but only if he's on the right amount of drugs! To much and he's nodding out, to little and he's shaking from withdrawals. Then there's the case where he misspelled his darkside of the moon tattoo, and spelled DORKSIDE of the moon! Chris Sutton is a has been! It's really a shame, so much talant and potential wasted while he was getting wasted. Seems like most of the other tattoo artist in town are going down the same road...why do artist gotta get high? I give props to anyone of these guys who has decided to stay clean!

Kids, do your homework. If you want good work, check out the artist's portfolio. Don't walk in or call 3 shops sayin' "how much for my kid's name with a heart?" Know that when you DO look at a portfolio, these are the pics they want you to see,(there are others that were less good) and if the ones in the portfolio are full of flaws and imperfections, then you have a good chance of walking out with one like that. If the work is clean and sharp, that's what you are most likely to get.

Nick is an artist, but not a tattoo artist. Stick to your paint brushes and cans picasso. His line work is shameful although the art is decent.
Johnny E...haha. Ok, he's a tattooer at best. Don't mention the word artist in association with his name because that's a joke. Heather seems to be less bad than him, although still a tattooer at best.(I loved that special they were having... Weekend BLOWOUT special... their work is full of BLOWOUTS so it made so much sense)
New shop in town, I haven't seen anything come out of there, well, mainly because no one wants to go there. We have enough crappy tattoos and if people want those, they already know where to go. I know a kat who tried to take a pic of some flash from there though because their portfolio was so bad he wanted a tattoo like that, but he didn't want them doing it..haha.
It seems if you want a TATTOO ARTIST, one who can draw, paint, etc. and also tattoo... there are only two real choices. Jack or Chappy. They both seem to use tattooing as another art medium. They have talent and imagination and can make anything you dream up come to life and make it into a nice piece of art you can wear and be proud of. I personally go to Chappy for everything, but Jacks reputation speaks for itself. I've seen alot of his art and it's impressive as well. If you go elsewhere, you deserve the poor excuse for a tattoo that you are stuck with.

jack hinton / nick ferrel, either or. chappy's good too, but those are definitely the best in town. look around, compare portfolios, and make your own decision though.

Only got one tattoo here in town the rest were done in Evansville but here i made the mistake of going to Eden..... John did my tattoo and it is horrible.... he did my cuz's right before mine n it turned out beautiful but mine is all jacked up... its not like it was a real complicated piece either lines are all uneven and the name is off centered he cut in deep as hell too thought he was tryin to tattoo my back through my panty line now i got to get it fixed... maybe my tits distracted him lol I dunno but when I went back he said looks good to me..... dumbass.... I'm embarrassed to even show it but when ppl do ask I make damn sure I warn them.... p.s. up at Eden that little cutie Wes was just as sweet as hell.... too cute

Of the portfolios I've seen, Nick Ferrell's is the most impressive in my opinion.

Eden Ink does not stand by their work. My daughter got her nose pierced there and it got infected. When I took her back there to ask them how to take care of the infection they looked at me and said "she didnt get that piercing here" when I told them yes she did and we took pics while it was being done and had the proof the guy then told me how to take care of it. I think that is horrible business and would never go back to their shop agian.
