This is the worst tattoo shop in Southern Illinois. They have continuous reports of infectious piercings and horribly scarred, funny looking tattoos. They treat their customers like crap as well. I had a friend that wanted her lip pierced the other day and when she called them, the recording said they were on vacation. They called her back 3 hours later after she went to Unique Ink, and asked what she wanted so late, and when she told them she wanted her lip pierced and just went to a different tattoo shop, the wife of the owner proceeded to say "Well good for you" in a snotty, condescending, sarcastic tone, and hung up the phone. These people shouldn't even be in businesss. Their shop is not only unsanitary, the owners do not believe in personal hygiene. Do not give them your business. Get your piercings and tattoos done right. There are four reputable tattoo shops that I can think of on the top of my head and Dark Side shouldn't even be in your mind, let alone in Southern Illinois. These people should be put out of business for the lack of respect and lack of hygiene. Sorry, but I don't want somebody who smells like they crawled out of a dumpster and them crapped his pants piercing/tattooing my body. Spend the extra money to make sure your body modifications get done right. I've gone to Unique Ink, Karma Tattoos, Iron Anchor and Tuff Luck for body mods and they have all been really great and had a great experience, however the last two friends that have gone to Dark Side and came out with messed up piercings and horrible looking tattoos.
Has anyone else had experiences like this?
I have gotten 3 tattoos and a piercing from Dark Side. Never once have i had a single problem with anything they have done. My sisters and friends all go there as well. Bill had never messed up anything on any of us. The prices are good as well. I have over $300 and didnt pay close to that. I have went to other places and the color had faded within a few years as to wete a tattoo that i got from dark side over 10 years agi still lioks as good ad it did when i got it.

I love BomberCrew! Roger is awesome. On a funny note...a long time ago this kid i know got a tattoo from Dark Side for the anniversary of his dads death. Suppose to say "Remember the Good Times" with the dates and all. First off, it looks horrible. Like a big black blob, shaky lines. Second, it read "Rember the Good Times". How fudged up is that? Almost as fudged up as his wife's talking. LOL. Don't get your tongue pierced when you can't even talk right in the first place!

Anyone that gets a tattoo is not smart to begin with, wear the same tie the rest of your life, same thing. Also makes women look real trashy, I would not hired based on that alone, shows low character...
i think i agree. can you not just get a stick on. that way if you want a little fun its o.k. then when you sober up your mother does not see.

Dark Side sucks! They messed a simple tattoo on my ankle, i've seen other peoples work and Dark Side ruined those too.. Screw this place, go to Unique Ink or something.

Ive read all the comments above and WOW is all I can say about the comments and Im sorry for the bad luck most of you have had with Darkside..However ..lets look at this side of it..Bill has been in business ..seems like forever, has a waiting line EVERYTIME I have drove by,..and have you seen the CORVETTE that is sitting at the front door? So really is he doing a bad job??? The place is spotless clean and organized, they abide by all the rules,and they are #1 in my book.as far as Sandy..well.....Do you drive a Corvette????? I dont think so...
I have a 2010 Corvette( paid off ) and I work at Lowes in Paducah as a Dept manager. So don't judge a business by what someone parks infront of there building..
Iron Anchor fixed my wrist tat when 4 ppl Tough Luck Being one of them either infected or went to deep. It's been 6 mnths since Joe fixed it. Still looks awesome!!!

That "skinny guy" is a good friend of mine at IA tattoo. I have work from him and so has my wife. I have several tattoos and his are by far the best I have. I've heard nothing bad about the shop and more than likely the negative comments about them were posted by other artists who aren't very professional but childish and feel threatened by his abilities. I grew up with joe and he has always been very artistic and driven in everything he does. So if you have issues with his work, bring it to his attention in person and I'm sure he will accommodate you in the best way he can. Bad mouthing on here does nothing for you. Makes you look like a tool and gives him more publicity. Marilyn manson is the most well known musician in every home because of the negative publicity he has received over the years. So actually, thank you for supporting iron anchor tattoo!!!!

Joe at iron anchor does shity work. And try and sleeps with any woman/girl that comes in. He uses people and walls all over everyone he needs to just so he can make sure he gets what he wants. He needs to grow up.I would never get a tattoo from iron anchor again he messed up so bad. I went to tuff luck tattoos to get it fixed and Joe over charges unless you are will to put out a little and suck something. than he will charge you a fair price. So I will tell everyone that not to go to iron anchor because if you don't put out than they will do a crappy job and you well pay way more than you would going anywhere else. Joe just uses every girl he can to get some.SO AGAIN NEVER GO TO IRON .I WON't EVEN TAKE SOMEONE I HATE THERE.

Not surprising, but his artwork is really good regardless.

Good to hear that you have a corvette and its paid off..from what Im seeing on here this is about a business and what they drive isnt really the issue. I however dont agree with some of them but everyone has an opinion and I respect that. Corvette owners that I have met do not have low self esteem..lol that is a big joke. I personally enjoy Bill and Sandy at Darkside I find them to be very enjoyable people with a growing business.

Yea his tata may be good but what some people do for them is not.he has people sick him of and sleep with them just to get a tart and if you don't than he its rude and hateful. But yea Joe does do some good tats but other than that he is a person that uses girls for sex and money
