Eagle Rose Blk&Gray By Mike Hale @ Skin Thrills Tattoo
Got my first tattoo today. It was a sentimental one and I left the creativity up to the tattooist, Charlie. He nailed it and he deserves more than 5 stars.

Got my septum done by Joe Perry and he did amazing, it was quick, painless and straight as an arrow. He knows how to make you comfortable and relax. Also very sterile environment. I will definitely be back again for another piercing soon
- Kayy Kellis. 4/17/2020
I went with my girlfriend and one other friend for their black friday $30 deal, yes it was my first time there but I have to say the artist were great and very professional. They made sure everything was cleaned and sterilized. Best of all being a cheap price for a tattoo the quality I feel like was great, we had an amazing artist with a great personality and she did a wonderful job if you havent been here yet i recommend it.
- Brandon Lowery. 3/23/2020
I went to skin thrills for a piercing and Rob was great. He explained the process and made it quick and (relatively) painless. They use high quality materials and the place seemed clean. I’m just over 2 weeks out and healing much better than I expected. The guy at the front desk was an apprentice and is also very nice and knowledgeable. They charged a very fair price and I’d recommend Rob for piercings to anyone!
- Ashley Mills. 2/25/2020
Great work and prices
- Preston McCormick. 2/14/2020
I've always gone to Skin Thrills because it's right by my house. Rob is definitely my favorite piercer they've ever had. He's very quick, and every piercing he does heals fast and with no problems. I've also gotten a lot of tattoos there. My fiance and I both use Charlie and Deb. We couldn't be happier with their work, and we'll definitely keep coming back. You've got a great team at Skin Thrills!

- Teresa Moats. 2/1/2020
I just had a nose piercing done and the gentlemen was great. Explained exactly what he was going to do prior to piercing. Charlie was my tattoo artist and he cared and listened to me if what I was wanting done and showed me the stencil beforehand and we talked things out. He did two new tattoos for me and even did a third one I had that needed retouched as I had it for 30 years and all three tattoos came out beautifully. Coming back for a touch up of a fourth one I have and talked about ideas. Zach that is at the front desk was great to talk and it was a great time and would reconvene this place highly. Very nice clean place and everyone is very professional and kind! 💕
- Renee Essington. 1/21/2020
The only place I go to get anything done going tonight to get my nose pierced
- Stephanie Sloan. 1/19/2020
Love this place. Love my work I've had done there. Very down to earth.
- john brown. 1/9/2020
I needed my tattoos redone since the original artist did some shotty lines. Skin thrills was amazing - they're affordable and had great service! Would highly recommend!
- Lieschen le Roux. 1/8/2020
Debbie is the best tattoo artist I have found. She has done all but one of my tattoos. She is very friendly and does a damn good job on the tattoos. She is not heavy handed and makes sure she is perfect on all her work. Before moving up here 6 months ago I used to drive 3 hours just to have her do the tattoos. Wherever Debbie goes I will follow.
- Jeremy Smith. 1/5/2020
I got my belly button done about 2 years ago and just got my tongue done last week. I won’t go any where else for piercings. The man is the best, he does everything so quick and painless. The prices aren’t too high and the service is amazing!
- Payton Young. 1/2/2020
Excellent service! Very professional and knowledgeable about piercings! Thanks y’all!
- Dina Klimkina. 0/18/2020

- Laila Wright. 11/21/2019
- Kathleen Van Schoyck. 11/20/2019
Awesome atmosphere, they make you feel comfortable.. Debi is my artist of choosing and I absolutely recommend her, 1,000 times over again! I have never gone to another person after she laid ink on me. She seriously has the easiest/lightest hand I've ever had. If they had 10 stars I'd give it to all of them!
- Melanie Cobb. 11/17/2019
This shop will not disappoint you!!! The experience backs it up!!! My daughter has gotten pierced and tattooed by the best in this shop!! Rob has over 20 years in experience in piercing and did a wonderful job piercing my daughter and very professional! As well as all the tattoo artist here that have years upon years of experience!! Each artist has been tattooing for a long time and all have there own styles. I would rather pay an extra dollar then have something done the incorrect way and have to go back to have it fixed!! I have tattoos by Skin Thrills I have had for over 10 years and never once had to be touched up and honestly looks like it was done yesterday! My daughter has also been tattooed and just beautiful line work and color that will last a lifetime. Skin Thrills hands down is the best in the Valley!

Skin Thrills did a great job on my
friend and I’s piercings. It was our first time going there and I will be returning anytime i want any other piercings.

Finally, the studio was very organized and clean!

- Crystal Clark. 3/27/2019
Awesome atmosphere with great employees. This is my most trusted studio in the area and my family has went to this shop for over a decade now. It's very clean and the artists are very skilled and talented with the most fair pricing I've seen. People often complain about how much getting a tattoo cost but if you want quality then you have to pay for it. Walk in with an idea and walk out blown away with a beautiful custom piece of art. I recommend anyone looking for new ink or a new artist to check this place out. You wont be disappointed

Jerry kazy is the man. Spur of the moment he decided he could draw my tattoo and then put it on my body for me. He doesnt do that at all. Very difficult to get in with one of the more popular artists in town but he took care of it that night for me. I'm more than pleased with the outcome. Will be going back for more work.
- Wj Altizer. 2/1/2019
- Chasity Hall. 1/21/2019
I stopped by last night to get my snake bites and everyone was very nice. The piercer was very nice and professional and made sure that I was comfortable. My piercing turned out exactly the way I wanted it. The prices are great and would highly recommend. I will be returning!
- Haley Lanning. 1/9/2019

- Candi Ahlbrandt. 1/8/2019
Great place for color tattoos
- Barbara Gee. 1/6/2019
The piercer was wonderful! He was very informative and gave me some great aftercare tips!
- Catie Kelley. 1/2/2019
I decided to go for a walk-in tattoo late-ish one night (tonight) and the people there were so nice I couldn’t believe it. The woman who did my tattoo, Debi, talked to me about options for my tattoos and was very patient while I was trying to decide on the font and spacing. She was SO GOOD I love her so much I will definitely be going to her for all of my future tattoos. Then... because my tattoo was so cheap, among checking out I decided to get my naval pierced. The woman, the piercers wife helping me with jewelry, was so nice it was so wonderful. Her husband is the only piercer there and he, Morguen, was absolutely amazing. I cannot type amazing and excellent service enough times on this review. The shop was extremely clean and they were so professional. It was a wonderful experience. If I could give them over 5 stars I would. If any of you are reading this.. thank you so much! I’ll be back!
- Kaitlyn . 11/26/2018
Amazing artists here! I'd recommend going to Jerry Kazy!
- Cassie Fulford. 8/14/2018

- Michele LaCasse. 8/14/2018
Great people they did some nice art work in me I will be a returning customer
- David Reynolds. 7/24/2018
I visited skin thrills on 07/20/2018 for my second piece completed here. I had a cover up completed by Eric who was absolutely amazing. He did everything possible to make us feel comfortable and explained the entire process of my cover up before getting starting. I showed Eric a picture of what I wanted my tattoo to resemble and he went above and beyond my expectations! I am so pleased with my tattoo and have been receiving compliments since I left the shop. My new piece is one of a kind and I couldn’t be happier with the work that Eric did. I would definitely recommend Eric and the other artists at Skin Thrills for a first timer or the repeat customer.
- Brittany Goad. 6/21/2018
Very professional, clean, and nice service- went in to get my septum pierced and was perfectly executed. Thank you, Morgan!

Got some piercings!! The guy did a GR8 job.
- Carly Mays. 4/10/2018
I went today to get another piercing and a tattoo done, I ended up only getting a tattoo done by Jason. I would recommend this place over anything. Jason is a very down-to-earth person, but most importantly he listens to what you want, where you want it & how you want it.
I will be returning for more tattoos and piercings!
- Baby Girl. 3/14/2018
Very friendly workers and clean atmosphere

Seemed nice and clean. Waited a long time to speak to someone. As a FYI they do not accept credit cards.
- Ron Kovar. 0/27/2018
Wonderful place to be
- Latika Saunders. 0/1/2018
I’ve been pierced/tattooed at other shops but this one is the best! Steven is the best piercer I’ve ever met, and probably the only man I’d trust to shove needles through my face skin. Tattoos are reasonably priced. I’ve had two different tattoo artists here. The first one did a small ankle piece I had originally wanted on my foot, but he explained it would fade and we should do it somewhere else. The second one was an add-on to a sternum piece I got elsewhere, and it looks amazing. It’s a completely different piece and I love it! Also, piercing deals are very common here which is nice as a college student.
- Loraine Brown. 11/17/2017
Very laid back atmosphere and people, I got my piercing daith piercing done here. I will be back in the future to get another piercing as well.

- Eric Gattis. 8/6/2017
I was very impressed with Jerry Kazy. He is a talented artist and a true professional. He did a REALLY beautiful job on my tattoo! And I'm very particular. My experience at Skin Thrills was excellent and I would highly recommend them.

- Betty Dalton. 10/1/2016
Came in for a piercing... Stephen did the piercing and I was very pleased with the service and the cleanliness... had maybe a 10 minutes wait, and then the entire piercing procedure took maybe 5 minutes.... Will be back the next time I want a service done! Thank you!
- JKCBrown . 9/2/2016
I don't even see why they have competition. This is the best place I've ever been to get any tattoo or piercing. They're professional, prompt, creative, detailed. I love this place so much that if I moved to a different country and wanted a new tattoo, I'd fly back just here just to get it from Skin Thrills.
- Brittany-Marie Aarons. 9/1/2016
What a great place! My two friends and I walked in on a whim last Wednesday and we were all cheerfully accommodated. All of the staff were attentive, super friendly, and professional. Very easy to work with and knowledgeable. My only regret is that I don't live closer as I'd return time and again. Thanks for everything!
- Paula Kershner. 8/5/2016
I just wanted to take a moment and say how absolutely amazed I was at this place. I was extremely comfortable as a woman in her 20's that's a big deal but as soon as I walked into the shop it was extremely clean, and everyone was extremely nice and helpful. This is one place I'd highly suggest. Thank you for my new level of confidence! You guys rock!! ♡
- Kaitlyn Stowe. 8/4/2016
My experience with Skin Thrills tattoo parlor was one.of the best experiences I have ever encountered. Everyone, (Griz, Brandon, Mike, Steve, Jerry, and Jason), had contributed to the best outcome possible.. Their courtiuos and southern hospitality made me feel right at home. Coming from California, I would recommend Skin Thrills to all my friends and associates.. Nothing short of a 5 star rating in my book. I plan on returning as soon as possible.
- Keith Lenhart. 3/14/2016
I wouldn't trust anyone else to pierce/tattoo me. Skin Thrills is such a clean and comfortable environment, the guys that work there are super friendly, talented and the prices are affordable. Since I've started going there I refuse to go anywhere else. Skin thrills is the best you can get.
- Jordyne Hargrove. 3/1/2016
I loved getting my first Tattoo from Mike. Awesome tattoo and awesome price. Going back to get another soon.
- letisha cammack. 1/12/2016
Skin Thrills is very professional, clean, and reasonable priced. I had several piercings done here and recommended them to my friends as well. All my piercings usually get infected, but when I got them done at Skin Thrills, they healed perfectly! I totally recommend them to anyone.
- Julie Knopp. 0/7/2016
I got my snake bites done by Stephan haven't had any problems ! Then I came back later that day for my sceptum he did great very friendly. ~ def my favorite piercer ever. Had a cover up done from them a while ago done by Jerry kazy real well. ;) and got one done on my wrist by Troy Taylor very good shop clean floors always shines.
- mstattooedgirl . 9/29/2015
This shop is excellent! Very clean and friendly. Pricing is affordable! I had a very detailed piece done by Gideon Presley and he did an amazing job! I have 5 tattoos from different shops and this is by far my favorite shop and artist.
- Danielle Massengill. 7/5/2015
I highly recommend Jerry and the staff at Skin Thrills! They are down to earth and amazing! I love my tattoo I just got done there!

- Cindy Newcomb. 1/4/2015
They are so good will go back soon
- Rachel Espinosa. 4/2/2014
Atom is the only professional piercer I recommend in the Roanoke valley. His personality makes the experience that much easier but his skill is why I continue to go back/recommend him. Make sure you have your I.D and cash (no cards) in hand and your piercing experience will be quick and painless.
- Aubrey Wood. 0/12/2014
I went to skin thrills to get my medusa done, atom is an awesome piercer I would also like to say that I am a professional body piercer myself which always makes it difficult to get pierced by someone else and i am going back to get more piercings by atom next time i go to virginia
