Amazing – "Initially called in and asked about a reverse PA, Melissa was honest with me, and told me that she had done many PA's, however, would recommend I speak to the owner.
I was sh*t scared, however, the staff did a fantastic job keeping me calm, and relaxed, and it was over in seconds. I'm still waiting for the pain to kick in.
I would recommend Exotic body to anyone looking for a piercing, or tattoo.
Excellent service, very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. – I had had my nose pierced just a few days ago and found myself freaking out because my nose ring was half way falling out and i wasn't able to push it all the way back in. I couldn't go back to my original piercer because I had had it done overseas in another country, so I went to Exotic. They were able to put a new nose ring in, and had to practically make a new piercing, but didn't charge me for the piercing, just the jewelry. I was pretty freaked out and was almost considering just taking out the nose ring and letting it heal, but the piercer was super calm and confident and did the job quickly. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!
Rude piercer!!!!!!!!!! – Went here to get my nose ring switched out, and bought a new one. The chick who put it in, doesnt even talk to me or my friend, asks which one i want, she wont even let me hold the tray of jewelry.. there are no prices, so i just pick one that looks cheap, and normal. she takes out my hoop, and puts in the stud, and it was painless, which was nice, then she says i will ring you up, up front- so we go up there and she rings me up at 28.96!! i was shocked! i paid and tipped- and when i tipped she finally smiled and said thanks.
I dont understand customer service like that!!
She didnt even say hello.. come on.
I Love My Piercer Samantha! – I went to Samantha through a recommendation from the piercers at Modern Body.They didnt have the jewelry I needed for my piercing so they raved about her and said they didnt trust anyone else in Sacramento.I get there and at first Im a little overwhelmed walking in cause the music was a little too loud, but they turned it down when they saw I walked in which I thought was very nice!At This point Im still very nervous but figure im in this so I tell the hot shop boy at the counter that I want a piercing. He goes to the back and then I see this super cute bubbly tattooed girl walk down the hallway to go so far and extend a hand to introduce herself.I was so surprised.We do a release form, I fill it out and then she takes me into her bright pink piercing room which was smells of disinfectant and pine sol.lol But I mean that in the best way and wouldnt have wanted it any other way cause I knew that I was in the ultra clean environment.She goes over jewelry with me which was a little pricey cause I wanted jewels but she explained the difference between internally(good)and externally threaded(bad)jewelry and it all made sense that the extra money was going towards good quality jewelry.She cleaned and marked the area and must have changed her gloves 5 or 6 times in between the whole process which made me think about something I probably never would have thought about before.My doctor doesnt even do that!This chick takes her job seriously and with pride.Samantha made SURE that I was fully comfortable and ready for what I was about to experience.She told me to take a deep breath in then let it out.I open my tightly shut eyes and she says your all done.I was so relieved and I truly dont think I could have had a better experience.Samantha is personable and well trained at her profession.The review below shocks me cause Samantha was nothing but sweetness and everyone Ive sent in has said the same.Maybe you were rude to her so she extended the bitchy hand back :)
SnR Best Of? – Thinking of going here because of SNR BEST OF?
You may have been to the exotic body and left wondering how they win the news and review year after year. That one is easy: it is by cheating.
The SNR 'Best of'' is a voter based system that is easily manipulated. Here is how mike does it; during the voting period Mike coerces everyone- not a joke, I mean everyone- that comes in to cast a vote for the exotic body. Most of these people are with a friend and not recieving any service at all. It doesn't matter to mike whether or not these people truly like the exotic body or whether or not he is, in fact, providing a top-notch service. He knows that if he wins, those who are influenced by such shallow 'contests' will come in thinking the exotic body is the place to because some publication ran a shammy voter based contest that determines who is 'the best'. And that, my friends, translates into money for Mike... his TOP priority.
You might think to yourself,'Well, he is a business owner. He should try to make money.' and to that i say,'OF COURSE!!!! BUT, at the expense of honesty and TRUE integrity? How are we to see truth through a fancy facade?'
If you absolutely have to go to the exotic body to see for yourself, then go. Free choice for all...
However, if you get a piercing, get one from Samantha. She may be cranky, but understand she works for Mike. She is overworked and underpaid. Cut her some slack, she is very skilled and she won't touch or say creepy things to your daughter or girlfriend. As far as tattoos go, do as you would do anywhere else; look at portfolios.
SNR's Best of has always been a joke when it comes to art. This year they lauded Char Hall as Sac' greatest artist. Go and check out Char Hall for yourself. If he is Sacramento's greatest artist we are in BIG TROUBLE......
Oh, by the way, if you were wondering where Mark went... he got the hell out of there. He works at Legacy Tattoo when he is in Sacramento. the number there is (916-454-5404)
I'd rather pierce myself with a dirty needle then come back here. – I have been pierced, oh ... about four times. I have been to tattoo shops in different locations through the state of California. And I gotta say that this was my worst experience ever.
The piercer ( a surly woman) could'nt have been any more unfriendly. I have no idea what I did, except that maybe I was just a little to much of a happy person for this woman who appears to hate life.
She was rude, unhelpful and insenstive. and she pierced roughly and without any finesse at all. It was a traumatizing experience.
Everyone else seems really nice and friendly here, so no digs on any of the other folks here.
Great experience! – I couldn't have asked for a better piercing experience. The staff was friendly and made me feel very comfortable. They were very knowledgable and told me everything I wanted to know beforehand. Mike led me through my belly-button peircing and kept my mind off of my nervousness. The procedure was quick and professional and everything was clean -- much more than I expected of a tattoo and piercing parlour (and this was my first visit to a tattoo parlour). I was able to take my time afterward and the whole experience was great! I highly recommend Exotic Body for any piercing needs.
Best Tattoo Shop in Sac! – I had a memorial tattoo done by Mark and he far exceeded my expectations on what I wanted. The staff was cheerful and friendly I would recommend this shop by far to anyone!
the exotic body rocks! – I got the best tattoo done here by mark! i had so much fun with the whole staff they made me and my friends feel very welcome and comfortable. the shop guy andrew even offered us all something to drink and bought us sodas. ive been to other shops and they were never that personable. ill deffinatly be coming back to the exotic body!
loved this place – i would highly recommend going to the exotic body to get pierced. my piercer samantha was not only very friendly but even though i was very scared she still coaxed me through it. everything was very clean and sterile in there packages and that put my mind at ease. i really liked how she took her time with me and didnt rush me out the door like other places i have been to have done. ive been to many piercing studios and this place is by FAR the BEST place to go! no doubt!
