Absolutely Fantastic!!!, 3/15/2012

I have never been in a tattoo shop where the employees were so kind and genuinely cared about my experience with them. I got my first tattoo with them and have gone back 5 times since and have had... the same amazing customer service and awesome artistic talent put into my tattoo each time. I cant rave enough about the quality of work thats coming outta Raleigh s best tattoo shop... Thanks Ernie and Mike... you rock. and thanks to the girls in the front for being so sweet and fun

Awesome, 11/16/2011

I went in last Friday to get a tattoo i already had fixed. They had great customer service and wer very nice!!! I was in there no time before they got my paper work done and had me in the chair... working on my tattoo. It was my first time going there and i definitely plan on going back for all my work in the future. Byron fixed my tattoo and he was very good! I love the way my tattoo turned out this time!!! I will definitely be recommending Warlock's to all my friends!!!

Top notch tattoos

Went in on Sunday of memorial weekend. Showed Ernie my design. He gave me some options and information on how to make it work. He gave me a great price and only took an hour. For this design I was expecting at least 2 hours and twice the price, it was a celtic hound with the tail forming an intricate celtic knot and some gaelic writing. The work was perfect and looks great. This place was professional at least as professional as you get in a tattoo shop. The people were nice and everything went smoothly. I was in and out in an 1.5 hours with the paperwork, payment and tattoo. Ernie did a great job, I can't comment on any of the other tattoo artists but I recommend Ernie to anyone.

Don't get caught up in the hype

Went to get my second tattoo here like 8 months ago. Came in with a friend when it was slow. The person who greeted us was a little obnoxious (but really what can you expect in a tat shop). However, she was rude and talked down to us (maybe she was just having a bad day- but this wasn't my first time in a tattoo shop). The owner was nice and the person we talked with about designs was knowledgeable. Made an appointment to come back expecting for the same person to do the actual tattoo... that's a joke. Apparently at the time they were having some people leave or something or getting new people (not sure which) but either way none of them were particularly nice. Yes I get that i'm not your typical person (i'm a little more classic on the outside) but with 9 different piercings and a large piece on my back it was irritating to be talked to like I didn't belong there. The guy who ended up doing my tattoo kept wanting to take breaks (wasn't very friendly either- and him answering his phone while doing my tattoo had me wanting to smack him and leave!) and he also didn't put in the final white to finish the tat. It's a good piece and the price was on the steeper side but not too bad. However, only go here if you want to be treated like you don't know anything about tattoos or what you want and what looks good. I'm giving them 2 stars because maybe I just came at a transitional time, but honestly I won't be going back or ever refer anyone to them. Getting a tattoo is pretty permanent and it'd would have been nice if they hadn't treated me like a prep school dumb blonde. Thanks for the decent tattoo Warlock's but I won't be back because your service sucks.

Extremely Happy

I recently went in for a touch up on a tattoo that i got a year ago from No Regrets in raliegh. No Regrets did a horrible job and over charged me. went into Warlocks and immediately was talking to the owner. He was extremely nice and helped me right away. I was there for maybe 10 min before he had me in the chair getting tattooed. The touch up looks absolutely amazing. I went from just liking my tattoo to absolutely loving it. If you want a place that has great customer service and friendly good tattoists go here! Id definitly recommend Byron and will be going there for my future tattoos!

Fabulous!

Warlocks is the best shop in the Triangle. Definately not your typical flash shop. Not only do they have excellent tattoo artists & piercers they are friendly & clean. Never have had a poor experience. I love that they are open 7 days a week for piercings & tattoos! I have had 9 large tattoos there & many piercings. I have no doubt that they will keep up the good work.

VERY BAD customer service from Owner

Called about a tattoo. Not my first. I made an appointment to see Byron the owner. I thought I would be talking with Byron when I got there. I was introduced to him and he didn't even acknowledge me and push me off to some person who look like they just got out of prison. I talked with this person for 5 minutes and I could tell they knew very little about tattooing. I showed them my drawing and they said it would be difficult. It was a simple dragon armband. Well, they said they would look at it and draw it up and call me the next day. Well, that didn't happen, just as I told my son, that was with me, that they wouldn't call when we left the shop that night. You could tell they didn't give a hoot about me. It was 6PM at night and the shop was pretty empty. So where were all the tattoo artist shown on their web site. Please do yourself a favor and go to another shop. Their are a few real good ones in Raleigh but not this one. I did get my armband from a great guy near State and it looks wonderful and I was very glad I went there. Please stay out on this place if you know what's good for you.

Great Place .....ask for Errol

I have had three tats done there...loved each one, but tried to have one removed, well the laser treatment scarred me real bad. I hated for people to see my arm/shoulder. I went and talked to Byron he said that they could cover it....he drew up a butterfly and some astract flowers. I went back checked it out and loved it. Went back a week later and Errol did the outline and some shadowing (due to scar tissue I had to do the outline then go back for color once healed). Errol did an AWESOME job! At first I was not comfortable but he and Byron quickly fixed that. I think it was my vervousness because I really wanted something that would hide the ugly site on my arm/shoulder. \rI read some other comments and none of the times that I have been there did I feel like I was being treated rudely. I will go back if I get another and I would recommend that you check them out if you want a good, clean, and respectful place to go and get a tattoo. Thanks again Errol,,,,,see you in a few more weeks!!!!! I can't wait!!!!

Stop searching, Warlock's is the place to go.

Stop your search! Warlock's is the place you need to get your first or next tattoo. I got my first tattoo there and I will not go anywhere else but Warlock's. I have 3 tattoos now. Being new to the area I did my research and asked friends and people on the street where I should go for my tattoos and over and over again I kept hearing Warlock's. I went there and spent hours looking at all their tattoo selections. You have to visit Warlock's to know what I am talking about. Byron is the best and all the artists there are too. When people ask me ""who did your tattoos, they are so unique""? I stop and tell them Warlock's created all my great tattoos and I love them all! I won't go anywhere else. YOU have to go! Warlock's is World Famous, the oldest tattoo shop in the area and over 50 years experience.

WARLOCKS IS THE WORST!!!!!

This place is horrible. I walked in as i was getting off my cell phone and one of the workers told me to turn around and leave b/c it was a ""no cell phone zone"". I told him i was ending my call and he asked me to leave again. Needless to say I left gladly. They are complete jerks, I just came to look at some of their designs, but now i will never go back to ANY warlocks location again. Clearly if i was hanging up the phone there was no need to ask me to leave. Maybe if they were busy doing their jobs instead of congregating at the front chit-chatting they would care less if i was ending a phone call while walking into their ""no cell phone zone""!!!! The worst!

BEWARE

Complete idiots! The owner is pervert full of crappy racial and sexual jokes that leave you feeling very uncomfortable. He was more interested in flirting with us despite being 60 years old and married. To top it off he claimed to have drawn something for me when i found the same picture on the internet thankfully before i got tattooed. My friend went back to get her tattoo fixed later and he blaimed the crappy tattoo work he had done on her, then tried to charge her to fix it! We went to Phoenix and they agreed it was poor work and not my friends fault luckily they where able to fix it. I wouldnt let them tattoo me if it was free

Artists?????

If you want a tattoo from a real artist..........go elsewhere. They make you feel like they are doing you a favor by tattooing you. The owner is a total idiot and totally obnoxious. Overpriced and undertalented. First timers.....Beware.

Complete jerks

Their customer service is horrible and the owner is a complete creep! I went because my friend had gotten a tattoo by a guy who i came to find out wasn't even working there anymore. The owner was very rude when i asked them about where the guy was who did my friends tattoo and what happened to him.\r I heard later that the guy quit and was severly assaulted by the owner! No wonder that he quit. Try Blue Flame they where much nicer
