Best ink in the midwest !. Eastside Ink is the best. Nikki, Lucky and Rickaferd are friendly, helpful and truly great artists. I have tats from a few different shops, but my last three have been here, and I won't be going anywhere else. Want treated like royalty? This is your shop. Want truly artistic tats? Even the flash is personal here. I could go on and on, but I won't, just get your behind here and see for yourself. Oh BTW, better stop in or call for a appointment, although occasionally you can walk in and sit right down :)
OMG - bEST SHOP IN DES MOINES. I just really loved the atmosphere and cleanliness of this shop. Real people doing real tattoos. cool. very cool.
exceptional artist. Myself and my husband have had several tattoo's done at Eastside Ink - and without a doubt the best ones we have. Lucky & Nicki are always very friendly and have always treated us and our famiy wonderful.They both have wonderful personalities and respect for everyone who walks into their business. We will continue to be Eastside Ink lifers.... Keep the friendliness and your artisitic abilities and Eastside Ink will continue to thrive on the Eastside......
Fantastic artists!. Exceptional artistic ability and creativitiy at this shop! I currently have 9 tattoos and have had 3 of them done here in the last 2 months. All were custom drawn, one of which was freehand drawn on my leg and is the most gorgeous horse tat ever! (thanks Rick!). Highly recommended! Your best bet is to make an appt. I know I plan on having more work completed there, and would refer anyone to them if they want quality work completed.
Customer for life!. So many of my friends told me about ESI and recommended Lucky as the artist. What do I do? I take my ideas and sketches to him and he worked his magic. My piece was original and it turned out AWESOME!!!! Needless to say, I will be returning in the near future for my 3 other tats I will be getting. Nicki was so helpful and sweet when I came in with the sketches. We talked about color and fitting the words into my memorial ribbon. Then, she showed it to Lucky. He liked my piece and was excited to ink it. From start to finish, it took only 40 minutes. The shop has an atmosphere like no other. It is VERY clean and everyone is just so friendly and personable. They have attracted another customer for life and I have told everyone I know. I've even told my customers that are thinking about either getting a new tat or adding to one where to go: East Side Ink! Thank you.
I love this place. I have got numerous tats and one piercing at Eastside Ink. I'm tellin ya- it is the place to be. Everytime I go there, there are people working, getting tats,hanging out- everyone is friendly and has a good time. Rick and Lucky are not just guys with tattoo guns- they are TRUE and AMAZING artist. I have personally rcvd tats from Rick and seen beatiful work done by both Rick and Lucky. They both have a way of making a tattoo a piece of art. (Is that not what you want in a tat??) The color is amazing- there is no one like them in the Midwest area- ESI is the place to go hands down. I take all my friends and family there and would not recommend any other shop!
Thanks Niki, Lucky and Rickaferd- you guys are ROCK STARS!
amazing. i have friends who have been to east side ink and were pleased with the service that they recieved. i have been an "east sider" my entire life and a proud one at that. There are alot of tattoo artists out there with marginal skill and with little to no creativitiy. The artists at ESI are creative and their skill is second to none. They were able to take my raw idea and turn it into a great tattoo. Rick is smart, does great tattoos and Lucky made a great choice when he hired him. I will be back again and again... as soon as i have extra money that is.
Awesome artist and piercer. Friendly place and people!!. This is the place to get your tatts and piercings. The enviroment is awesome and the staff is incredibly friendly. I would recommend this place to everyone. They really make you feel like a big family. I think that they are very professional yet down to earth folks and will continue my business with them and spread the word to as many people as I can. I love Eastside Ink!!
