Anyone have any experience with them?? I was gonna go get a tattoo colored in and get 2 more put on me but I cant get them to answer a simple question on facebook.. Asked them if I could get some corrective work done on an old tattoo and how much the price range might be but they seem to not want my business because they dont take time to reply Are they this rude to everyone?? They may do good work but their customer service is shitty I guess I will drive somewhere else to get my work done..

I have always had excellent experience with southern steel and their tattoos . Back when rob had a MySpace, the business aspect was much more maintained because they had time, and not so much overload . Your case is possibly one of simply missed posting or something like that. Before I got my tattoo, I emailed rob pictures and questions and he eagerly answered them. He also followed up with me there to check how I'd healed. Buy with Facebook, and the store in wise, they get very busy becausr their work is amazing. Your best bet is to call and speak to someone, or go in, and they'd surely give you the information you're looking for. Don't judge by facebook, the southern steel crew is extremely curteous and genuinely concerned for their customers. Id never go anywhere else

They do a wonderful job and they are so busy doing their job that they dont have time to stay on FB all day! I have been there to have work done several times and every time,the place is full with people walking in wanting something done,they are that good! I would suggest that you call or walk-in,they are very nice people and will give you exactly what you want and at a reasonable price too!

Trust me, go to Smalltown Tattoos. Joh Vanderpool, Jen Curnette and Sergio all do GREAT work. If you do end up going to Southern Steel make sure you have Harley do it. He's very talented and a great friend of mine. If whatever it is you need colored in is anti-Christian you can forget about it. They won't work on anything that is again their Christ (which I think is silly)

Silly? Absolutely stupid is a better explanation. They must have forgotten that the bible clearly states you shouldn't tattoo or pierce your body. Maybe they know but think it is alright to put so many in sin for a couple dollars.

Apparently someone ( YOU ) doesn't know their Bible all that well themselves. Ever hear of Jesus Christ or the fact that there is NO
CONDEMNATION IN CHRIST?!

This might explain why they feel the way that they do about tattoos.

I don't have to check that link out, I know why they're saying that. Some Old Testament Law that no longer is applicable. If the
world was under O.T. law, sure but since Christ came and redeemed
EVERYONE ( if they choose so ) then it no longer applies. Christ
gives everyone Salvation no matter what Law you've broken or sin
committed if you choose to believe in Him so it doesn' matter what you do to your flesh..( or what clothes you wear or how much money you do / don't have or how long / short your hair is, etc.) Get a clue, folks.

If and when the third temple is built, will you run and put graffity on it walls. The body is the temple of the lord, and it is my thought that it should remain clean inside and out if possible.

People c'mon your all beating a dead horse here. Poor ol'horse has been beaten,smashed in the ground and his bones are probably protruding from the Great Wall of China as i type here.Y'all been talk-in about the same BS sense '09 and probably before then.SS and ST are both great shop's with outstanding artists O.K. this has been established. Can we talk about tattooing now? Please & thank you.
working with flash is cool but custom work seems to be the in thing these days at least for me it is.Drawing pieces out freehand is my love,However I also don't discriminate against tracing. A good light board & #2 pencil amounts to fast & ready for input and or thermal copier.
Whether I freehand or trace the custom piece trial and error have both taught me that using a program like Photoshop or MSpaint can come in handy. What I do is scan the piece before tracing it. This way I can use PS or MSP to embellish the dynamics of the pic I'm going to tattoo.Image size,contrast,intensity,hue etc. can be manipulated.I would recommend to anyone who slings ink to try this method. This is just an opinion but I think that over embellishing the dynamics of a piece enhances the illusion of depth and movement in the tattoo but that's just me thinking. I could be wrong.
Well I guess I'll go ahead and post this and if there's anybody out there who wants to throw me some hate,,,feel free I like to drink it with my coffee.

I'm convinced! I know I'll be visiting Southern Steel soon for my first, self - designed tattoo.
I have designed several works for others as well as my own but never committed going as far as to
actually get it done but that's about to change.
The only local artist I even trusted to give me ink
has always been Jon Strouth but I've lost touch with him recently so I think I will visit S.S. and
check them out once I get back to Ky.

Does Southern Steel do lip piercings and what would be the price? I want it like right under my lip on the left side, Im guessing thats considered your lip. So if someone could let me know, I'd appreciate that. Thank You.

You need to make an appointment. At the appointment tell them what you want done,and they give you pricing there.They are very friendly, and even bargain with prices.
