Black pearl, hmmmm. Roland could not hack it a a cop, so now he is just a HACK that tattoos underage kids without consent from their parents... I know this because the officers that I gave the police report to know of the scumbag well. And now the Attorney General knows about him as well. As the city courts and the department of professional registration... btw, getting a continuance in the city court will not help you... the $50.00 hack you did to my daughter will cost $1,200.00 to remove. The fact that she will still be scared for life, well, I will let the courts decide your fate on the total cost of your insolence...
Black Pearl is the Best Tattoo Shop in and out of St. Louis. I have gotta 11 tattoos and 10 piercings done by them. It is very well put together and friendly. It is very Safe. The prices are very reasonable. I would not recommend no other than BLACK PEARL. Its a family environment. Go to down and get a awesome Tattoo by the Black Pearl Family!
Black pearl has one of the worst reputations ever, this is a bargain bin of tattoo shops, and just like any bargain bin, you get the bottom of the barrel tattoos. This is a book you can def judge by its cover, this building should be burned down. There is absolutely NO, i mean NO artistic merit to be given to these ppl. the tattoo industry doesnt even recognize this shop, its just a bunch of scratchers. This has nothing to do wit hahters and anyone working from this shop is just blakening an eye on their reputation like this shop is a black eye for professional tattooing
THE WROST TATTOO SHOP EVER!!!!!. I WENT TO BLACK PEARL, AND THEY TOTALLY MESSED UP MY TATTOO. SO I WENT TO THE INK DOCTOR TO COVER UP WHAT BLACK PEARL DID. THERES A ARTIST NAMED TWIZZLER THAT WORKS THERE, HE IS DA BOMB. HE COVERED THE TATTOO THAT ROLAND DID. BLACK PEARL IS THE WROST TATTOO SHOP EVER. CHECK OUT TWIZZLER AT INK DOCTOR AND YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT. ST LOUIS HE IS THE BEST, AND HE RESPECTS YOU. ROLAND YOU AND YOUR SHOP SUCK.
There's no better place in the STL/Metro area to get a QUALITY TATOO at a REASONABLE PRICE and it's SAFE (everything is sterile)!
If I were to rate the work alone (tattoos, piercings) I would give the shop a 10, 100, 1000, etc.!
If I were to rate Roland on people skills, again I'd give him 10, 100, 1000, there's not enough I can say about his personality as he can calm the scariest of people, mainly me (never thought I'd make it through my 1st tattoo and now I have 3 and it's all because of Roland's personality and skills.)
He has a large selection of tattoos, will use your design or design for you.
I won't go anywhere else! After my 1st tattoo some 12 years ago, the majority of my family and friends all go to Roland (Godfamilies-maybe 10-20 people, Godmother-70yr old for her b/d). Approx. 2 yrs ago we went as a group (made an appt) to have tattoos done for 5 people to celebrate children
Bogus Accusations.... I, lauren tell, am currently under apprentice status at Black Pearl Gallery. A 16 yr respected company that also operates a not-for-profit (runway2empowerment). I am efficiently trained to conduct all aspects of piercing. Its unfortunate that my ex had informed me that he posted accusations to tarnish my career.
The piecer that works their named Lauren Tell is not a certified piercer and the shop has been reported to the st. louis county health department.
I have no relation to your ex I'm from Edwardsville IL, my daughter went there to get a piercing from a lauren tell a week later she got a staph infection from her lip piercing. I contacted the Health Department already I would advise either you start firing my only other option was to sue the shop for this unfortunate situation. I will not sue unless the problem at question is fixed.
Its A Good Cheap Place. I went there on Saturday February 12 the place was hella packed and they started turning people away so I decided to go the next day because I wanted to get a tattoo for my birthday which is on Valentines Day. There was a kid there asking people what they wanted so I told him a tattoo of mickey mouse on my lower back. The kid looked to be around 15 years old. I waited there about an hour and a half before asking for my money back. It was a chubby cute guy there and he was like naw baby girl we goin make sure you get a tatt for your birthday and about ten minutes later I wuz gettin my tatt so all in all I think the place is great I got a tatt there before and I also got my tongue pierced there everybody I know go there it also have reasonable prices unlike other places that charge you $45 dollars for just a name.
it was cool. I guess if it was your first time ever going here u would be a little confused it usually a lot of people hang out there, but i have 6 tattoos and yes Roland did them all except 1. if your getting a small tattoo then your wait time is not usually long but when i got my tattoo on my lower back i wished i had went in earilier and came back because of the details i waited the for about 3 hours but that person no longer works there. there is a lot going on there but if you to have fun while gettin a tattoo then Black Pearl is a great place to go!
Great Place. I got a nose piercing here, and it was amazing! Great service, no appointment needed, sterile equipment, and super cheap (which doesn't mean that the quality is bad). We also didn't have to wait at all. I would highly recommend this place for piercings.
