I have seen excellent work Graydon has done, but I don't understand how people can put up with him long enough to get it done. He misses appointments constantly, makes promises he cannot keep and is an overall FLAKE. If he gets his shit together RDTG could do great, if not it will soon be just another vacant building on the D.M. strip.

Due to popular belief and nasty rumors, I am a very busy business owner who has opened and am juggling 2 businesses, to those clients who have fallen disappointed I do apologize and if there was any rescheduling it is due to a priority basis...I will reschedule friends and clients who I am giving gross discounts to and the above comments I know reflect 1 or the other, I have made a professional decision no longer to offer deals and to treat all of those who appreciate my artwork, friends or new clients with the same respect. To those who support our business and my art thank you...and to those who may be taking interest thank you and look forward to meeting you soon....RDTG
Graydon, I gave you a CASH deposit when I booked my appointment with you. You indicated that it was standard so that people wouldn't flake on YOU. I thought it was a fair request at the time.
But sir, YOU flaked on ME. I've also heard from more than a couple of your colleagues (as well as people giving reviews here) that that is standard mode for you. NOT COOL, and VERY unprofessional.
I selected you based on recommendation of two satisfied clients. Your avoidance of responding to my attempts to contact you in resolving this matter have nothing to do with you juggling two businesses. The apology means nothing when you are STILL holding the money I already paid. REFUND MY DEPOSIT, immediately, please.

Went for their $30 St. Patrick's day tattoo and got what I paid for - a tattoo that fully scabbed and caused me immense pain for days. As my 4th tattoo, this was by far the most problematic. Done by Christian, whose gun voltage seemed very slow and felt as if it was dragging across my skin, it is finally now beginning to lose the very thick scab and is now spotty and light. It's a bummer.

Dealing with Graydon has been a horrific experience. DO NOT waste your time with him or the staff at Rooster Down, you WILL regret it. Just look at the comments below., Need I say more?

Avoid neck tatoos. HR will usually flag as Do Not Hire.
