I've always loved this place. The people who work there are great and always make me feel welcomed and at ease. I really enjoy the homely feel of the place, comfortable and inviting. I've gone here for several piercings (tongue, and septum) and they both turned out great with no problems! I go here for all my piercings and plan on getting a tattoo there soon too. :)
Very unorganized.. As a full time student with a full time job, I really don't have much time to waste. I made an appointment at this establishment because of how many positive reviews they received, but apparently I caught them on a bad day. The lady that helped me gave me the wrong email address to my artist, so he never received my design ideas and had nothing drawn up when I arrived, though it was not his fault. The same lady also forgot to mark my appointment down - after I paid my deposit - and double booked the time slot. So, I waited for an hour in the lobby while my artist tried to have something drawn up and take care of 2 clients, but ultimatly was pushed out of my slot and got no tattoo that day. This is one shop I'll be avoiding in the future.
I trust this place for my piercings. Though I don't really care for the girls that work there because they are rude to me. But David, who have done most of my piercings, is so nice. He makes you feel comfortable when you're nervous and is very helpful. Now for those who gave a bad review for this place, I'm sure it's true because not everyone can have a good experience like everyone else. But for the girl who whined about not being able to get her nose pierce because of her different last name with her mom is ridiculous! Black hole is just doing their job and if you can't follow their rules than might as well go some place else. Seriously, that is just really bratty to complain about something like that.
Overall, I trust this place and they are very friendly, clean, and helpful.
Very clean. I went here recently to get my cartilage pierced. VERY clean, sanitary, professional. I felt at ease, and would highly reccomend black hole to anyone.
horrible experience. in december i got my lip peirced. i went here, to the beaverton black hole, it came highly recomended. the man that did it did a very good job, healed quickly with almost no pain. so in march i decided to get ta snakebite done. i went to the same place to get it done. this time it was a lady who was a little heavyset with long dark hair and I had never seen her before, and i went there quite a bit for jewlery. I figured I probably shoudnt worry, i dont go in there 24/7. So i pay and everything seems to be going fine when my friend realized she put on latex gloves when i said im allergic to latex and she almost touched me with them. i started to get a little concerned. so she sticks the needle through my lip and i noticed it hurt a little bit more than i remember it. then something happend that for some reson i cant say it on here but there was something wrong. i told her thats she should check and she told me that it was normal, so i insisted. she sighed heavily like i was some inconvinence and took a closer look at my lip. she told me to hold on and she went to go get someone else. in walks the dude who peirced my lip last time and he was very nice and professional, he told me that she had burst an artery in my lip. great. he said he was sorry on her behalf and that i it didnt clear up in a week or so. so about 2 hours after i had a huge dark red bruise one inch in every dircetion from my piercing. attractive, right? and the guy was right, it went away in about a week. later my friend went there and got her nose peirced by the same lady and she cut a nerve and she couldnt feel her nose for over a month. it turns out that the lady was an aprentice and they never warned us before hand or asked if we would like to wait or schedule for another time with someone else.
omg black hole body piercing was soo kick-ass i got my belly pierced and I thought it was going to hurt really bad but i didnt feel ANYTHING. Like i was sooo scared, but after that i didnt feel anything and i still dont and it looks awesome. Thanks Josh!!!!
Perfection!!!. I have been to many tatto places and the Robin at black hole was the most friendly and helpful person, she has done 2 of my tattoos now and I have taken my mom to see her as well. Just excellent work, in a clean environment. I have had all my piercing there as well, by Robin's husband, he is an awesome piercer, everytime I come in he check my piercing and they are always really friendly and helpful... if your looking for that first tattoo or even to add to a collection GO HERE!!!! same for piercings!!! always get the best and this is IT!
Great place to get a tattoo!!. I went to get something added to my exsisting tattoo and Robin (the tatoo artist) was awesome!!! She was very friendly and detail oriented making my tattoo look more amazing than I had expected. She was down to earth, realisticly priced and very personable. The art-work she drew looked great and she was able to understand what I wanted and made it look even better than I thought it would. I would highly recommend her for anyone who wants to get a good quality tattoo (make an appointment, don't expect to just show up and get in all of the time) My friend is going back next week to get her tattoo done there since mine looks so great and Robin was amazing!!
I wish I had gone sooner!.
I FINALLY got my nose pierced after years of wondering should I or shouldn't I. David gave me thorough account of what to expect, talked me through the procedure, and then handled it easier and gentler than any medical professional on their best day!
Having sensitive skin, I have had a problem healing. But I went back and he checked it out, gave me advice on being patient through the healing process (DON'T PICK AT IT!!!) and in less than two months, it looks like I've had it forever.
I don't have the guts to pierce anything else, but I have told people this is THE place to go! Even people at my church like it!
if you're a minor.... I'm 17 and I went to black hole today with my mom to get my nose pierced again. I already had it pierced there earlier this summer, and I liked the place, but the hole closed. The woman was really rude and wouldn't pierce my nose because my mom and I have different last names. The first time I got pierced my mom just signed a statement saying we have different last names. So basically, you should go to Straight To The Point instead of Black Hole. The people are more helpful and they don't demand a birth certificate.
