I have been living in Paris a few years and I have seen a bunch of hideous tattoos. I was told that they were Bongo's. My son wanted some lettering done and asked for a price and was told it would cost him $350. He went to Nacogdoches and had it done for $135 and they did a great job. I have quite a bit of ink on me. A couple in Houston and the rest from out of state. I have had one coverup that I had done when I was very young. Getting a tat is serious business and any shop should be checked out before going. Cleanliness and quality of work. I have heard pro's and con's about Bongo's on this thread. I only know he is way to expensive for a small town.

I shared that same opinion and thought Blake Thomas was making a huge mistake by opening the Inkwell here. Looks like I was wrong. Blake is an awesome artist and he stays booked up 2-3 weeks at a time. He had to have a guy from Tyler come in to help him keep up with all the work he's getting, and he's been here since October. Congrats to Blake and I hope his success continues.

...oh, and FYI, piercings are not my thing, but the Inkwell is doing them now too for anybody interested in good local work. End endorsement.

I doubt anybody gives a rats azz if you have tattoos. Speaking of tits, you must be sucking the government teat and drawing a check. Cause I doubt that most businesses in Paris would hire your sorry azz if you are all skanked up with tattoos.

Yea lady you are hideous I have a lot of work done at bongos an I doubt that the lettering your son wanted was $350.00 dollars unless your hideous son like most cons ,wanted letters the size of a sheet of paper, you think there going to put cheep shit on people if they did bad work, wake up lady I'm sure your son wanted the extra money from you for you no what ,an the more tats you get from Bongos ,the better break you get for the next one, I have both arms done an 350.00 can get you a huge tat at bongos. Sounds like you need to find out where your money was fixing to go!!!! Before you run your mounth.

Bongo's does do awesome piercings whereas the tattoos are about average. Whenever I have gone there, they are always friendly :) Bongo and his gf are knowledgeable, which is a must in that industry.

As I said, whoever we talked to at Bongo's quoted $350 and he got a really good job done in Nac. for much less. Sounds like you either work at Bongo's or work under Bongo. The work I have seen, attibuted to Bongo, was very poor quality. Take that and stick it up your butt. My son makes over $100K a year and doesn't need money from me. I have a lot of ink and we thought we might go down and get one together while he was in but the price was ridiculous. I can imagine the quality of the tats you have. With your mouth and writing ability, I can see "MAM" with a heart and arrow through it. Does your mullet cover up your tats? By the way, I am not a lady and I am big enough to run my mouth when and where I want. I don't have to come on some forum and hide behind a computer to do it. This was a good discussion until buttheads like you hijacked it to cover for your buddy.

I would like to reiterate that I was "told" that the tats came from Bongo's. If they didn't, I certainly apologize to Bongo but I do know that I have seen some of the worst tattoos around here that I have ever seen. Maybe folks are going somewhere else to get them. I am also very sure of what my son was quoted. He has some real art on his body and does a little tattooing himself so he is knowledgeable. He told them exactly what he wanted, size, style, etc. and got the quote. A little shop that some friends recommended in Nac. did some really good work much cheaper. I think it was called Tattoo Majic or something like that.
