Over the last several months I've been looking for a new tattoo artist. A good friend of mine knew this and very adamantly suggested I go to 'his guy', Ben Dixon, owner and artist at Lone Wolf. I have been jacked around by other well known artists in the area who are talented but we just didn't really get along. Ben has been nothing but wonderful thus far and I have absolutely no intentions of going elsewhere for anymore of the work I plan on having done. (which is a significant amount) The artistry is phenomenal and the rest of the guys are super chill and very friendly. I can't imagine why anyone who goes to these guys for some work will have nothing other than a Class A experience. Call me bias but frankly, they've given me reason to be that way. Not to mention that Lone Wolf has been voted #1 for the last 12+ years in the Nashville Scene's "best of" annual issue. Good luck beating that.
rude!. I thought this place was one of the best in nashville?? I went with a friend to watch her get tattooed and was going to make an appointment/consultation for myself. The artist was condescending and rude, talked down to us the entire time. I was shocked at the treatment we received. Maybe it used to be great, but not anymore. Needless to say I will be going somewhere else for my tattoo.
Go anywhere else. I have been going here for almost 16 years and once upon a time they were the best around. Now they are absolutely crappy. The service is horrible!! Would rather down to Mississippi and waste money on gas than bother with the jerks that work at Lone Wolf. Ben what the heck happened to your shops?
Look elsewhere.... Probably my worst tattoo experience so far. I went in to get a pretty simple tattoo, mostly line work and some lettering. The artist I spoke with was nice enough, but clearly lukewarm about the design. OK, no problem, I don't think the artist has to dig the design to provide their services. When I returned for my appointment the problems mounted. This part can only be this big, the placement won't work, the lettering options are limited, etc. Beyond the stoic, nice dude veneer this guy was being really condescending and treating me like a moron. This would have been my eighth tattoo. I could have pointed to examples on my body of things done smaller and in more detail than he was claiming was possible. *Worst Part* I had my fiancee with me. After we decided to leave she told me that every time I wasn't paying attention this guy was leering at her and giving her a "can you believe this guy" expression. Nice. When we got home we "sharpied" the design onto my arm to see if his placement concerns were valid. Totally bogus. Avoid this place. You can do better.
I love this shop.. I've been to four different tattoo shops all around and Lone Wolf is by far my favorite! TIM is such a great artist!! I came in, told him exactly what I wanted, and, within a week, he had drawn it and tattooed me. Then, a few weeks later, when I wanted to get a drop shadow added to it to hide a little ink bleeding they did it for free and told me to come back if I needed anything. These guys are extremely professional, clean, and nice. It'd be difficult to convince me to go to any other shop.
I have now had three tattoos done at Lone Wolf and this past experience was, once again, incredible. I don't think you can get better than Jason St. Clair--he is a true artist and I will definitely come to him for all of my future ink. He was meticulous and took the time to make my idea come alive in the most beautiful way... plus he's just a cool guy.
In my opinion, there isn't another option if you want a tattoo. Lone Wolf is the best and you will not be disappointed!
The best tattoo experience. I had a wonderful experience. The tattoo artist took his time trying to help me with an old cover up. After we decided on a design ,we started with tattoo process. It turned out wonderful & I get tons of compliments ! I highly recommend !
awesome tattoos. Will Wood at Lone Wolf is an amazing artist, and does beautiful color. Literally every time I go out, people ask me who did my tattoos. He took the time to go through pictures with me and figure out the style that I would like, and then drew everything up. Go see him, and make an appointment for your tat... good tattoos take longer than 5 minutes!
Pleasantly pierced. After much thought & anticipation, I finally decided to take the plunge & get pierced. From the minute I met Joshua, he put me at ease & helped calm my nerves. He was very friendly & professional & answered the zillion questions I had.....even tho I'm sure I was driving him nuts. He was very knowledgeable and explained everything to me before he started. Once pierced, he was very thorough in giving me detailed instructions on how to care for the piercing . All in all, I had a great experience & love my piercing.....anyone wanting one, go see JOSHUA!!!! He is the best!
the BEST tattoo shop EVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.
I highly recommend Lone Wolf to anyone who truly wants an outstanding experience!! Lone Wolf is the perfect place for a high quality tattoo. The enviornment is clean and the staff is amazing.
Ben Dixon is the BEST!!!!!!!!!!
