Reviews for Pinups & Needles

Kevin O. – 5 star review

This is one of the friendliest salons and tattoo parlor that you can go to. Natalie and Charlie are exceptional.

Charlie does great work with ink and is very helpful in helping plan things out. Charlie is great at trying to get to know you as a person to help design the proper tattoo for you. After all it is permanent. I currently have 3 more large tattoos planned and 2 future appointments set up. I was so comfortable when getting the last one done I lost track of time and having so much fun joking around that It didn’t hurt at all.

Although they are by appointment only they are very flexible and care about their clientele. I have never been as comfortable with a stylist as I am with Natalie. I can trust her opinion on keeping my hair in a professional cut yet let her change it up.

I hope I never have to find another place to get my hair and ink need done because I know that it will not be as great of an experience.

I love the set up and the couple who owns it! The tattoo Charlie Comber gave me is, to date, my absolute favorite. He was clean, professional and personable. I highly recommend his services to anyone.

This place is awesome!! Charlie does awesome work. Did 2 great touch ups for my wife which turned out perfect, and one for me, which was also legit. I will definitely be stopping by next time I’m in town. Very friendly and comfortable.

Him and his wife also gave my kid some great toys to play with while we were getting them done which was way more then expected.
