Incredibly happy!Got my first piercings yesterday with Jesse. He did an excellent job and listened to me. All tools were new and clean from packet. Quick and easy process! Very happy with my piercings and the overall experience. Will be definitely coming back to get my next ones done with Jesse! Thanks!

I was a costumer and got tattoos done there before.I got a tattoo done on my finger and foot and the artist told the that is normal for it to fade and I have 90 days for a free touch up.I went back about 1 month later spoke with a different artist and he told me I just could get it fixed for free with the artist that have done it, if he fix for he would have to charge. That is ok.I went back today and Spoke with the artist who did my tattoo and she said that she never told me that, who ever I spoke before was crazy to tell me that she would touch up for free and there is no such thing as 90 days.

This time around I saw more arts of work that I like from the other staff members here. Still as I entered the store, only one person greeted me as I entered. I don’t know her name so I will call her Zenobia.Aside from her friendly greeting, the rest of the staff didn’t talk to me unless I addressed them with a question…I didn’t. The works of Tim Mitchell caught my eye this time around. Pity there weren’t any of The Grudge, The Ring or The Nun tattoos drawn yet.I wonder which character Tim would find the scariest out of those three ladies?I found the signs with when the artists would be in helpful. It saves time from asking stupid questions. I can hear my teacher from 3rd grade say…” there are no stupid questions.”I will have somethings to think about should I decide to get a cover up…

Jesse’s still awesome. At least in my body, dermals last 6 years. Hence, the last 2 times I’ve gotten one have been from him. He also eased out the dangly rejecting bases that were the last vestiges of the first 2 times when it came to it. Like Jesse a lot. Wholeheartedly recommend this shop and everyone in it, while I’m at it. Maybe don’t get your nose repierced and your sparkledot put back in on the same appointment, though. I’m sort of regretting having both sides of my face sore at the same time.

So after reading the reviews, I was a little hesitant to visit their shop. But I thought to myself, I’ve been on YELP long enough to know you can’t always judge a place based on the reviews and decided to give it a try. I went in to add another piercing in my cartilage. I was immediately greeted by friendly, smiling faces as soon as I walked in. Although they were busy with tattoos, they took the time to ask if I needed help and guided me to the back of the shop to see Jesse. The moment I met him, he was friendly and had a great sense of humor. He did an amazing job with the placement and piercing itself. He was extremely professional and took the time to go over the aftercare step by step. We were greeted on our way out of the shop by each employee with a “thank you”. I am extremely pleased with this place and will be back once my new piercings heal to get another. Thank you JESSE!

Jesse is so fricken awesome.So I actually hadn’t been back to the Body Gallery in a long while (mostly because I left the area). I came here when I had just gotten out of high school to get a cartilage piercing from Jesse and hadn’t been back since, though my friends in the area all go here for piercings.Anyways, fast forward several years. I got a new cartilage piercing done in DC and it was completely butchered. The bar that the piercer put into my ear was wayyyy too short for healing. When I asked about that concern, she told me it’d be fine. It has been a year and it hasn’t healed correctly, which I just kind of dealt with thinking it’d eventually go away. I was wrong. It didn’t go away and recently the backing of the piercing basically sunk into my skin. I had to spend thirty minutes pushing the hell out of my piercing hoping that the hole hadn’t closed or something. It didn’t, and I did eventually get the back of the piercing pushed back out. But, that was when I realized I needed to go see Jesse.I stopped by today for a new piercing and he replaced the piercing with a longer bar and explained to me the trauma my ear had gone through and how I should expect this to heal in a few weeks after proper care. He also said if it didn’t heal in a few weeks to come back in and they’ll take a second look at it.I’m so thankful for Jesse. He didn’t even butcher this piercing and was so kind and attentive in terms of making sure it healed correctly this time around and educating me on the topic. He also replaced the backing of one of my other piercings when I asked (I lost the backing to it) without any questions.

Went about 3 weeks ago to get a piercing from Jesse. I wanted and received a double helix piercing with two hoops. I was a little worried about the pain or the after care but luckily it was quick, and pretty painless. I had asked previously if they were able to do it with two hoops and gladly they were able to. Jesse is an amazing piercer and Im very lucky and glad I went to the body gallery to get this done. thank you!

The only time I’ve been here was to have both of my daughters’ ears pierced by Jesse. The experience was fantastic, I like that Jesse explained everything not just to me, but to my girls as well. There were no tears, just smiles and 2 happy kids. The people at the front desk were very pleasant too. I had called the day before to ask about the process and what I’d have to bring and all my questions were answered patiently.

I decided to get my first tattoo here after browsing through the Instagram photos of their artists. Tim Mitchell’s tattoos drew me in. He is very talented artist. I’m so in love with my tattoo. I borrowed inspiration from internet but Tim made changes to make it unique. He made me feel very comfortable and it was surprisingly pain free. Not sure if it’s the location of where I got it, inner forearm, or if it has to do with the artist but I felt zero discomfort the entire time. I keep getting compliments on my tattoo and people wanting to know where and who did it. Will definitely return for my next ones!

Such an awesome shop. I’ve been there multiple times now and every time a great experience. I’ve been tattoed by Tim twice now and will be going back for more, I’ve also had multiple friends get work done by him! Tim and his work are amazing and he will make sure you get exactly what you want. I was also tattooed by Lina who is apprenticing there and there was so much support from the whole staff. All the staff is kind and helpful from the second you walk in. There is an artist for everyone and they are all ready and eager to answer any questions you have. Highly recommend The Body Gallery!

Jessie absolutely rocks the house. Thoroughly professional and straight-shooter. Very welcoming environment, friendly and fun all around. Highest recommendation!

There have been multiple occasions where I’ve shown up at the shop and they’ve closed early. The website says 8 p.m. however the workers stick to their own timings. There was a time when I showed up an hour prior to closing and the workers were sitting inside and just didn’t open the door. Incredibly unprofessional and I recommend taking your business elsewhere.

Nothing put positivity to say about this shop. The people make the environment fun, and exciting. I’ve been working with Tim, and so far he has been killing it! He’s a great artist and if you’re looking for some dark and crazy tats he’s your guy. Highly recommend the Gallery to anyone looking for a quality tattoo.

I went to Jesse to get my second piercing done because of a recommendation from my friend. She had gotten a bunch of piercings from him before, and there were never any problems. I got my first piercings done at Claire’s. Not good. I really needed a reputable place because there were a lot of problems with my first piercings. I didn’t need an appointment, and there was no wait when I went. The forms and paperwork didn’t take long. Jesse showed me where he thought the piercings would look best, I approved, and he pierced my ears. Then, he told me about the aftercare and gave me his card in case I had any questions. I was probably in there for a max of 15 minutes. The amazing part is, my two lobe piercings only cost $50 for both the piercing and jewelry. Compared to other shops, where the jewelry alone costs like $50 a piece, this was a deal. You don’t get to choose your jewelry, so it’s just a pair of silver barbell ball-back earrings. You don’t have to keep them in for long though, so I was fine with it. I used the H2Ocean Piercing Spray a couple times a day to make sure my piercings were clean.Just a weird thing I thought I’d mention–my ears bruised like crazy a couple days after I got the piercings. They looked like they could be infected, but I quickly realized they were bruises. I bruise super easily, so it wasn’t a big concern and went away after a couple days. I just thought I’d mention it so anyone who also experiences it doesn’t freak out.Overall, I’d totally recommend Jesse!

I have been here a couple times for piercings, they are friendly and patient. My first time i got my nose pierced, and the women piercing me was gentle and very nice, enough to distract me from the pain i was going to feel. My second time, i walked in randomly and was able to get my belly pierced. This time i got a man, he was VERY gentle to the point where i asked if it was going to hurt and he was already done! I totally recommend getting your piercings done here!

We come to this place a lot and put up with a lot of “laid back” work ethic but we are done now. We called at 7:05 for a piercing. They said the guy would be there until 7:30 though they actually close at 8:00. So we arrive at 7:24 and he has packed up and we get some lame excuse “I can’t control what he does”. I remind her we just spoke and he is now leaving earlier than we were told. Just not cool. I would not have come and this is rude. Why is it this group of people feel they can be rude and not held to any sort of work ethic? I’m sure there are some out there who have a great work ethic but we have not found them. Any suggestions for a good piercer preferably closer to Leesburg 🙂 We won’t be coming back here again.

I got my ears pierced the other day. It was an overall pleasant experience. There was one man there doing tattoos that made the experience super fun and welcoming. I like that they are more professional and hygienic than going to the mall for piercings and it was quick and somewhat painless. You don’t get to choose what earrings you get, but $50 for jewelry and a piercing is a great price. I would definitely recommend this place!!

My daughter and I each had a tattoo done by Tim and we couldn’t be happier!!! Both are gorgeous! I highly recommend him.

I’ve had almost ever single tattoo done here (7) and I’ve only had AMAZING service! I hadn’t been in since 2011 and just went in today to have my eyebrows done with Daila. Wow!! Girl knows what’s up! Super sweet easy to talk to and made me feel SO good! I highly recommend seeing her for ANYTHING! I’m now planning to have a tattoo removed and re done with her!! I love this place!

Amazing experience!!! I had Tim Mitchell cover up a rose on my ankle with a watercolor flower tattoo and it came out better than I had imagined. I’ve had work done before, but he went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. He was easy to talk to, and let’s be real, that’s important when you’re going to spend hours with someone. I would absolutely recommend Tim to anyone looking for an artist.

Industrial Arm Transformed Into World’s First Tattooing …

A team of students from well-known Paris design school ENSCI Les Ateliers had an idea that could change the face of tattooing. The team came up with the idea during a recent design challenge hosted by the French Ministry of Culture and worked with other ENSCI students and teachers to bring it to life. Their idea? An industrial robot that could autonomously create a tattoo from a database of images.

The idea was conceived as part of the Public Domain Remix, a workshop that encourages students to create new items using a mashup of public domain material. The students had 8 hours to come up with an idea and remix their material to create something new. After bouncing around a handful of common concepts, the team came up with the radical idea of a tattooing robot. They consulted with digital manufacturing expert Le FabShop who thought the idea was achievable and could be prototyped using the schools hardware.

They started on their project during the one-day event, hacking a 3D-printer to draw on a persons skin using a pen. The team wowed the crowd with their ink drawings and even impressed the Minister of Culture, who came in person to see the project. Thi success in such a short period of time encouraged the students to take the next step creating a machine that would make real tattoos on actual skin.

The team worked on the tattooing robot in their spare team, seeking the assistance of other students and faculty members, who gladly lent their expertise. The team acquired a manual tattoo machine from a local tattoo artist and hacked the needle onto a 3d-printer. To begin testing their device, they started to tattoo everything paper, fruit, artificial skin and even themselves. Early tattoos were focused on circles and basic geometric patterns designed to test the precision of the machine.

After a series of successful trials with a 3D-printer, the students then sought the help of the research team from the Applied Research Lab at Autodesk. The two groups took the tattooing robot to the next level by attaching the tattooing apparatus to an industrial robotic arm. Though tattooing fruits and fake limbs are fun, the team really wanted to test the machine with a human subject and test they did.

Finding a guinea pig for the human experiments was easy. There was mare than enough volunteers who wanted to become the first person tattooed by a robotic arm. Before the tattooing could begin, the team scanned the part of the body to be tattooed and then converted that information into a language that the robot could understand. Once the persons leg was in place, the team held their breath as the needle-quipped robotic arm came down and pierced the skin of the subject to begin the process of tattooing. SO what this historic first tattoo? A simple spiral that looked fantastic.

Who Gets a Game of Thrones Tattoo? – The New York Times

LONDON Last Wednesday, Rebecca Gosnell, 24, stood outside the Circle, a tattoo parlor in London, waiting to get her first tattoo. It was going to be of a sword, called Needle, from the hit television series Game of Thrones.

In the show, that sword belongs to Arya Stark, a young woman trying to make her place in a mans world, not unlike Gosnell herself. But there was also a simpler reason she had decided to get it done: Its free, she said.

Gosnell was one of about 30 people, mainly women in their 20s, in a line to get Game of Thrones tattoos, offered as part of a promotion by NOW TV, a British streaming service. The show, a fantasy epic produced by HBO, is in its final season.

[Check out our guide to Game of Thrones.]

NOW TVs offer sounded like a desperate bid to get some media coverage, and maybe sell a few subscriptions. There have been many headline-grabbing stunts recently that a cynic could roll their eyes at: Fender, the guitar maker, for instance, introduced a range of Game of Thrones instruments this month. (Yours starting at just $25,000.)

Yet many standing in line for the free tattoos spoke passionately about how Game of Thrones had inspired them, and it was hard to be cynical about that.

Theres so many characters in the show who are underdogs, and they get really badly treated by life and people, so they have to rise up, Gosnell said. She had been bullied herself, and was coming out of a bad breakup, she added. Looking at the sword tattoo would empower her, she said.

Even the oldest fans in the line a married couple, both called Shane Horrell and both 43, (Its hell for us at airports, one joked) said the shows characters meant a lot to them. One of the Shane Horrells was getting a tattoo of a dragon that Daenerys Targaryen rides in the show.

Daenerys, shes come from nowhere to where she is now, Horrell said. Shes been through so much. Thats inspiring.

Thats one reason Im getting it, he added. Oh, and because dragons are cool.

Game of Thrones tattoos are nothing new, according to Lauren Winzer, an Australian tattoo artist who designed them for the NOW TV promotion, and had flown out for the event. Visitors to the Circle could choose from 16 of her designs, including phrases like Winter is Coming written in Gothic script and a picture of the shows famous Iron Throne. Over 6,000 people applied for 50 slots, a NOW TV spokeswoman said.

In Sydney, Australia, where Winzer is based, many fans at first wanted tattoos of the direwolves, she said, animals in the show that bond with and defend some characters. She even tattooed one on Sophie Turner, one of the lead actors in Game of Thrones, with the phrase The Pack Survives underneath. (I was kind of stressed doing that, as I was like, This is your show, Winzer said.)

Its just getting something you love and relate to, Winzer replied, when asked why people wanted Game of Thrones tattoos. I mean, Ive got Simpsons, Addams Family, tattoos.

Recently, fans were getting more obscure ones, so they stood out, she added. In London, she tattooed one fan with a door that had the phrase Hold the Door written on it, she said, a reference to a climactic scene from Game of Thrones season six.

Around the corner from the NOW TV promotion, in another parlor called Gypsy Stables, Cesar Pimenta was preparing to ink an image of a leopard onto a customer who appeared to have little space left for new additions. Pimenta said hed seen people getting Game of Thrones tattoos for years, but he had only done three himself.

I did two dragons on someones hands, and then I did this crest from the show of a dead man on a cross, he said. It looks like a guy getting tortured. Wasnt that too dark a symbol to tattoo on someone? Its cool, so why not? Pimenta said.

Pimenta was not as obsessed with Game of Thrones as some of his customers, he said, but he did get fans obsession with wolves, an animal he said he felt a special bond with.

Its one of the few animals with spiritualism, he said. I lived in Finland before and listening to the wolves at night, howling in the forest, is a beautiful feeling. It gives you this kind of magical touch to your soul, he added.

Back at the Circle, the parlors five chairs were occupied, and a steady trickle of Game of Thrones fans emerged from the basement with their new, free, tattoos. (None were of wolves. They were mostly dragons.)

In the line outside, Johnny Hargis, 23, on vacation from the United States, where he worked at Disneyland, said he wanted to get the sigil, the royal symbol of Daenerys Targaryen, on his arm. In the show, Hargis explained, Daenerys Targaryen sets slaves free, and wants to crush the oppressive system of the monarchy.

That speaks to me a lot, he said.

He added, however, that he was not against Britains queen. Daenerys Targaryen wasnt against monarchies, just oppression in general, he said. Fighting injustice is really inspiring.

Ashleigh Quelch, 25, a maintenance engineer in the auto industry, came up from the basement with a new seven-pointed star on her wrist. She had chosen a subtle tattoo, she said, so it wasnt obviously connected to the show. I appreciate people having images of movies and bands and things, but its a bit obvious, she said. This is classy.

Why did she think people were so obsessed with the series? Its just a massive soap opera a soap opera with dragons, she said, and viewers could identify with the characters. But it was also because it was simple escape.

I read something interesting the other day, Quelch said: That we were born 100 years too late to explore the earth, and 100 years too early to explore space. We are in this boring middle bit. So we have Game of Thrones instead.

A bit over decade ago Chad Stewart gave me my second tattoo, and really the only one that I give a damn about anymore.What started out as an extra terrible, half-baked and impulsive idea (Aztec calendar backpiece anyone?) turned into a pure, authentic, love-based and completely hand-sketched piece (my great grandparents’ names in traditional Chicano style lettering, with a beautiful turquoise, coral and silver feather ring that my mom gave me as the centerpiece) that I’ll be proud of until the day I die.We did the whole thing in one go, it took several hours, and I enjoyed every minute of it. From the thoughtful planning back-and-forth prior to the session, the session itself, the multitude of cigarette breaks, the fun, shit-talking banter, Lil’ Tommy chiming in and checking on me, Chad’s steady hand and complete consideration and care, the whole thing was good feels.Despite my totally reckless lack of proper tattoo care (I was back in the sun and in the lake all day every day less than a week later), this tattoo is still solid, and I still get compliments and questions about it all the time.This is the cream of the crop for ink in Charlotte. Really, don’t bother going anywhere else.

This is a true tattoo shop, Rodney Raines is an incredible artist!! You feel at home and the work is unbelievable. Worth advertising and boasting about.

Went to go get my first tattoo here, I was super excited (obviously) and picked out a basic line tattoo of a sun and a moon connected. My tattoo took 3 minutes. Fast forward to a few months after and I realized my tattoo was jagged and was blurry in some spots. A friend of mine who is heavily tattoo’d looked at it and told me I had blow out all over my tattoo. Meaning the needle was pushed deeper into the skin than it needed to be. Which makes a lot of sense now considering my skin was being pushed down by the gun.. You can see in the picture the jagged lines and ink that has spread out from under my tattoo, also called blow out. Also, around the top and bottom of the sun you can see the blurriness too. At the tip of the moon the line is extremely thin compared to the rest of the tattoo to the point it doesn’t even look like it connects. Maybe I just had a bad experience considering all of the great things I’ve heard about this place. Although, being my first tattoo, this is really disappointing.

I would not recommend this place to get a tattoo. Extremely unfriendly atmosphere and not clean. Chancellor was my artist…terrible to work with…defensive and rude and not easy to collaborate with on account of his unpleasant personality. I stuck with him because I had already put a deposit down but the interactions with him were never what you would call pleasant. On my final tattoo with him, he messed it up badly. Every appointment I had with him he was an hour or more late and this one was the same. When he finally arrived, he was acting very strange like he was either high or coming off of a high from the night before. Many of the lines did not even show up because he was not putting ink in the fucking needle!! I went back several days later and told him he needed to fix it so I made an appointment with the bizarre office manager guy for 5 pm on a weeknight several weeks later. When I arrived for my appt., Chancellor immediately started yelling at me saying “where were you???” Apparently, the idiot office manager wrote my appt. down in the book as being for 12 pm instead of 5. This tattoo guy who had been late for every appt. was jumping down my throat because he thought I had been late! When I stood up for myself and argued back, the other tattoo artist in the room threatened me with physical violence and then tried to back track because he realized what he was saying and I could have easily called the police right then and there. Instead, I went to my apartment a couple miles away and got the appt. card that proved that my appt. was at 5 like I said, and I went back to show them. The guy who threatened me was apologetic, but the office manager freaked out and started yelling at me!!! It was unbelievable. Of course, I did not go back to get my tat fixed there. Instead , I went to Immortal Images on Monroe rd. A world of difference…clean, friendly, professional. Chris fixed my tat that Chancellor fucked up and reworked all of my others. It’s just sad that I associate my tats with such an unpleasant experience and awful people, but hopefully that will fade in time.

As the proud bearer six tattoos, and this one being my seventh, I can honestly say that Ace Custom is the best shop I’ve ever been to. Chad Stewart drew up a half sleeve based on a half-assed idea I came in with- it looks amazing. He took the time to get it right and incorporate all of the elements I wanted in a solid looking piece. Chad’s level of customer service is off the charts. He takes his time to give you the ink that you want, while not charging you an insane price. I’m on my third session and can’t wait for the finished product, as well as plan the piece for my other arm.

I had a mess of a half sleeve tattoo from an “artist” from a different shop in Charlotte. After that disappointment I was either going to get it lasered off or get it fixed. It was difficult to find someone who understood what I needed done and who was confident enough to get it done right. When I came in and had a consultation with Lil Tommy, he listened to what I was hoping for and affirmed that he knew what I had in mind. When I got in, he was able to cover up the the mistakes that the other tattooer made, added additional work, and put his spin on the design. The rework and fixes were beyond my expectations! I’ll have Lil Tommy do my next tattoo so that it’s done right! Really cool dude!

Ace Custom Tattoo is A #1 in Charlotte. Over the past 4 years I’ve gotten 6 tattoos by 3 different artists there. Rodney Raines has done 4 in various different styles, Chris Stuart is awesome with traditional and lettering, and Lil Tommy can put your thoughts into the art you are looking for. I’m now trying to think of my next tattoo that Mikey Holmes can put on me. A great addition to the shop. One of the best compliments I’ve ever received is to have other tattooers tell me what great work I have. Thanks Ace!

Great tattoo spot, I walked in to get a quick small tattoo done and later that afternoon it was complete. The staff was nice, pretty flexible with my schedule, and the work was perfect.

My husband and I really did our homework before making an appointment but it was pretty obvious that Ace’s is definitely the best place in Charlotte to get a tattoo. Hundreds of trophy’s and awards line the walls of the shop showcasing their talent. After checking out the portfolios we decided to make an appointment with Chansler two weeks later. When we went in for our appointment, Chansler already had my husband’s tattoo stenciled out. He did an amazing job and every detail was immaculate.Chansler designed my tattoo based on some pictures I’d shown him and completely captured exactly what I wanted. He added so much detail that I’d never even considered and I am incredibly happy to say the least. Not to mention, he doesn’t charge extra for his custom designs! I’d recommend anyone to Ace’s and would definitely ask for Chansler. I can’t wait to schedule my next tattoo!!

By chance I was able to walk into the shop and get tattooed by Lil’ Tommy. He was hilarious and I had a lot of fun. He made it easy to sit through the tattoo, AND he gave me a great price. I was in and out in less than an hour. I love my tattoo, it is now my favorite one, and will definitely come back again.Hi apprentice was cool too! 🙂

In two days I got a full sleeve from Chris Stuart. Had to book a while in advance but it was worth it!

What I’m about to say, I mean with all of the gravitas you can take away from it.I want Tommy to go steady with me, tattoo-artist-my-body-is-your-canvas-style. I live 6 hours away, and I will be going to only Tommy for all of my tattoos. Period. His artistic eye is perfect, his skill is amazing, and he can interpret your less-than-clear wants and needs and mind-read you to create exactly what you want.They were super friendly, very sweet and helpful, and I want Judy to adopt me, if she’s looking for 30-year old kids.I’ve been around the tattoo block quite a few times in DC and Richmond, and I have never been in a shop that was more welcoming and fun.

I am a total tattoo snob. I earned the right…I wrote a book about tattoos and edited a tattoo magazine for a couple of years. The tattoo artist who finished the Medusa on my arm lives in Houston, Texas, but that was ok with me because he was one of the only people who could do my Medusa the way I wanted it. There are few people in Charlotte who I’d let touch me with a needle, and almost all of them work at Ace. Some say that Ace is a little pricey, but you get what you pay for…cheaper places with quicker turnaround times are faster and cheaper for a reason…they are sucky. I got tattooed today by Chris Stuart, and he was awesome. He’s got great bedside manner, which is kind of rare in tattoo artists, who can kind of be divas sometimes. He drew the traditional-style rose right on me, and then he started lining and filling it in. The tattoo is on my wrist, which is a pretty painful spot, but Chris was gentle as a lamb with the shading…I had to plan my tattoo a month in advance to be able to get an appointment with him, but it was absolutely worth it. You won’t get better traditional work in Charlotte. All the others folks at Ace are first-rate artists as well, and Rodney Raines, the shop’s owner and frontman, is one of the best-known names in the industry. The shop is clean and professional, and their customer service speaks for itself. When you walk in the front door, check out the trophies in the window to the left. I also recommend skipping the flash section and letting one of the Ace guys draw something custom for you. Don’t miss the chance to get your own beautiful art!

I’ve been going here for almost ten years now! I live out of state now, and still get work done by Rodney when possible. Ace is where its at!

Best artists in Charlotte, NC, southeast. I don’t know what else to say. The talent here is ridiculous. They book out months ahead of time. Chris Stuart travels the world tattooing and never fails to execute with line work and his american traditional styles. He and skinny will blow your mind with their talent. It’s talent, it can’t be taught. its just natural born talent.

I drove nine hours from Indiana to be tattooed by Rodney Raines. That alone should tell you that this shop has a reputation for being one of the best in the business. It is as clean as a doctor’s office and like someone else said, these guys are not divas. They’re funny, smart and above all, talented at their craft. Rodney reworked and colored in my koi half-sleeve over a period of six hours and never ran out of patience or things to talk about and one of the other guys, who doesn’t drink, gave my boyfriend a six-pack of craft beer.I don’t think this place is particularly pricey, but I’m also willing to put a good amount of money down on a work of art, and that’s what you’ll get at Ace.Rodney does admit to being slow at getting back to people, but stay persistent. He doesn’t get (outwardly!) annoyed and will accommodate you any way he can. While I can’t go there every time I want a new tattoo (what with gas prices, travel time and overnight stays), Rodney will be the only one I ever go to for big projects. I can’t wait to go back there this winter and get my other sleeve done.

Rodney R is one of the best Tattoo Artist hands down. He is very careful with what he does and truly does show the passion in his work. Only reason I have gone to other places is because I usually just do a last minute session and it is hard to do that at one of the best and most popular tattoo facilities in the Carolinas. The only thing that needs work on is the quick responsiveness to customer service.I sent my Dad to them to get some work done and no one helped him for 30 mins so he went to another place 🙁

Ace came highly recommended by several sources so I decided to go and get my first tattoo done. Lil’ Tommy was the artist that worked with me. He was very patient with me (I kept changing my mind) and he kept it real with respect to my expectations. His honest attitude was refreshing. Am very happy with the end result and plan to go back when I’m ready for another one.

ACE is the best shop in Charlotte, hands down – the best group of guys anyone could ever ask for. Diverse specialties and serious professionals in their craft. Not to mention, just a great, honest bunch of guys who are always helpful, friendly, patient, and fun to talk to. However, this place is NOT for for the fly-by-night pick something off the wall kind of crowd. They DO have flash, but why would you chose flash when you have such a skilled group of artists at your disposal to craft a custom piece? So, definitely GO to ACE, but take your time, decide what you want, call ahead to schedule an appointment, and be prepared to wait a little while until you can get in. BUT it will be worth the wait, worth the money, and worth your while…

I had a “tramp stamp” I needed covered up, but I didn’t know if it would be possible because it was rather large and colorful. Chad at Ace worked with me patiently to give me exactly what I wanted. He did an amazing job and I wouldn’t go anywhere else in Charlotte.

art | Definition & Subjects | Britannica.com

Art, also called (to distinguish it from other art forms) visual art, a visual object or experience consciously created through an expression of skill or imagination. The term art encompasses diverse media such as painting, sculpture, printmaking, drawing, decorative arts, photography, and installation.

Islamic arts: Visual arts

In order to answer whether there is an aesthetic, iconographic, or stylistic unity to the visually perceptible arts of Islamic peoples,

The various visual arts exist within a continuum that ranges from purely aesthetic purposes at one end to purely utilitarian purposes at the other. Such a polarity of purpose is reflected in the commonly used terms artist and artisan, the latter understood as one who gives considerable attention to the utilitarian. This should by no means be taken as a rigid scheme, however. Even within one form of art, motives may vary widely; thus a potter or a weaver may create a highly functional work that is at the same time beautifula salad bowl, for example, or a blanketor may create works that have no purpose beyond being admired. In cultures such as those of Africa and Oceania, a definition of art that encompasses this continuum has existed for centuries. In the West, however, by the mid-18th century the development of academies for painting and sculpture established a sense that these media were art and therefore separate from more utilitarian media. This separation of art forms continued among art institutions until the late 20th century, when such rigid distinctions began to be questioned.

Name That Artist

Which artist is known for self-portraits?

Particularly in the 20th century, a different sort of debate arose over the definition of art. A seminal moment in this discussion occurred in 1917, when Dada artist Marcel Duchamp submitted a porcelain urinal entitled Fountain to a public exhibition in New York City. Through this act, Duchamp put forth a new definition of what constitutes a work of art: he implied that it is enough for an artist to deem something art and put it in a publicly accepted venue. Implicit within this gesture was a challenge to the established art institutionssuch as museums, exhibiting groups, and galleriesthat have the power to determine what is and is not considered art. Such intellectual experimentation continued throughout the 20th century in movements such as conceptual art and minimalism. By the turn of the 21st century, a variety of new media (e.g., video art) further challenged traditional definitions of art.

Art is treated in a number of articles. For general discussions of the foundations, principles, practice, and character of art, see aesthetics. See also art conservation and restoration.

For the technical and theoretical aspects of traditional categories of art, see drawing; painting; printmaking; sculpture. For technical and historical discussions of decorative arts and furnishings, see basketry; enamelwork; floral decoration; furniture; glassware; interior design; lacquerwork; metalwork; mosaic; pottery; rug and carpet; stained glass; tapestry. See photography for a complete history of that medium.

For treatments of the various arts as practiced by specific peoples and cultures, see, for example, African art; Central Asian arts; Egyptian art and architecture; Islamic arts; Oceanic art and architecture; South Asian arts.
