The only reason this clown opened a shop in Dalton is cause no one wanted him in their shop working. It cracks me up to see him representing San Francisco when the real reason he doesn't tattoo there is because he was Blackballed for being a Poser. Just look at the fact he has his face tatted and bare arms.... Talk about skipping the line! C/S..........

There is only one shop in the area that pumps out quality tattoo's and that is Lefty's! I wouldn't let anyone else ink me.

Is that because you ARE Lefty? Did the guy leave you because you use unsanitary practices? You make people wonder when you slander people.

If I were ever to make the choice to desecrate my flesh I may check it out Wes is an a hole and the other place is full of gangs and drugs.

Nick, how many hours do you have in the chair overall? Or is this the first time you have been tattooed?

Tattoos are for dufusses. Almost everyone regrets getting them sooner or later. But they are a big fad these days and people always gotta do what the other guy is doing. Follow the pack mentality. Not confident enough to walk their own sensible path in life. So sad.

The only place I will ever go is to Red Karpet Tattoo. They are extremely sanitary. The work is the best. I went to Leftys a couple years ago and not only was it dirty, but they could care less about the tattoo I wanted. They said "just leave a description and we'll call you" I never got a call I went back 2x and called about 4x. It was a bunch of little gang bangers in there. I went to Red Karpet and have been extremely pleased and happy with the work. I won't go anywhere else.

Lefty's is a pig sty. Never been to Red Karpet but it can't be anywhere near as filthy as Lefty's.
It is so clean there, you should definitely check it out. Me and my husband always had to travel put of Berkshire County to get a tattoo, but not anymore. You can see some of his work on his Facebook page

I went in there recently. The guy and his wife are both legit artist and good business people. The place is spotless and there is a lot of authenticity to what they do. He won't just tattoo anything on anyone that policy speaks volumes.
