WORST EXPERIENCE EVER!!!. So I live in the area and growing up was always told that Redbeard's is the best place in Arkansas to get a tat. THAT IS A LIE! I have gotten three from them now and each experience has been worse than the last, but this last time was so absolutely appalling that it assured I would never ever be back! I came early in the day, but the AC was out and the guy at the front desk said it would be better to try back later since it was too hot for the artists to do good work. Understandable, but when I came back that night the only artist they had available was this apathetic blonde chic that looked so bored that I thought my business would be appreciated. On the contrary, she made me wait twenty minutes while she finished beading a skirt that she was going to wear at some burlesque thing at the bar next door. I was on the verge of walking out when when she finally got to me, waving me to her chair with uncaring discourtesy. I tried to be pleasant despite my irritation, commenting on the fine quality of her art she had tacked on her walls. To this I got a noncommittal grunt and some brief small talk. She finished my tattoo in ten minutes and when I commented on how quick her work was she responded with, "YA, BECAUSE DOING THAT SUCKED." Seriously?!? I mean I had come across poor customer service before when dealing with people who work in this trade but such downright rudeness and blatant disrespect should not and will not be tolerated! If I could I would rate this place a negative 5 stars because people who act like that do not deserve the business they get or the income they earn. Everyone who asks, I warn away from Redbeard's Living Canvas Tattoos.
Best piercings anywhere. I've never had a piercing before in my life. For some reason, which presently escapes me, I had the notion to get my nipples pierced. I did a lot of research into it, but kept putting it off, until my wife went on a business trip to Hot Springs, and took me along. We saw The Living Canvas Tattoos while driving around the town, and decided to go in. Kelly explained the options, how long the healing process would last, what it would feel like (the word she used was "intense"), and how to take care of the piercings afterward. She showed me the single use needles and the barbells still in their sealed, sterile packages. She explained the process again, and gave me the chance to ask questions. All in all, she showed a lot of patience for this 43 year old first timer, and did everything she could to put me at ease. I would highly recommend Kelly, and The Living Canvas to anyone interested in getting pierced.
