I went here a few days ago to get a dermal on my upper cheek. I was helped by Kristen and I want to make it known that she was very nice and professional. Unfortunately, she did not seem to know what she was doing at all. First of all, she did not want to put it along my upper cheek at all and I imagine it is because she didnt feel comfortable with less skin which is fine. The problem was that it took her not one but THREE times to get the anchor in. This caused even more pain and irritation to the area. I am very disappointed because when I am getting something that is as permanent as a dermal I would like someone to be up front with me about their level of experience. If I would have known that she didnt know what she was doing I wouldnt have paid $70 for something that wasnt done correctly. Like I said, she was very nice but I would appreciate if someone would be up front with me about whether or not they know what they are doing before they go ahead and just try to "wing it". I personally dont know how good she is at other piercings but I can say if you want a dermal please do not go here. I always get my piercings done at red room, and victory tattoo had great reviews so I decided to try it. I definitely will not be back I am very unhappy with my experience.
After a lot of research, I chose to get my very first tattoo here at victory about 10 years ago. I got a pantera tattoo done by derek parsons and it was an awesome experience. Being my very first tattoo, he could tell I was nervous and was super accommodating by playing pantera during the tattoo, telling jokes, and getting me water when I needed breaks. The tattoo came out great. Ive had several others done by him since. I have a few tattoos done at different places in Chico and San Francisco, but victory is hands down the best Ive experienced. Derek did a pretty big back piece on me that I get compliments on almost every time its visible. More recently, derek started a memorial tattoo for me after the death of someone very dear to me, and worked hard to draw up something worthy of my loved ones memory. My experience with derek is more than an amazing tattoo, its an amazing personal experience with somebody who sincerely wants to give you the best he possibly can. I will never get tattooed by anyone else.

I got my nose pierced by Amber almost two months ago. She was very professional, gentle, and informative. The entire staff was very friendly, and calmed my nerves. I went back two days ago because I had a little bump on my nose piercing. She said it was a keloid, and explained to me what I needed to do. Within one day - the bump was GONE! Ill definately be going back to Amber at Victory for my next piercing! I highly recommend Victory! I dont have any tattoos - but my friends who have gone there to get tattooed love it, and they look amazing. Chicos most friendly, CLEAN, and professional shop! Victory is the best place for piercings in Chico!
I love this shop!! I got my first tattoo done here, just a few days after I turned 18. The process was easy, the artist very helpful, and the work was quality. It only took about ten minutes and I was out of there. It healed perfectly and I had no problems whatsoever. It is important to be mindful that this shop is somewhat expensive, but remember that youre paying for the quality and craftsmanship of the artist. Thank you so much, Victory!! Ill be coming back to this shop for years to come!!
These guys are the best!! Always a professional, clean, comfortable, and relaxed environment. Theyve done everything for me, from traditional flash, to my own designs; including 2 half sleeves, and even matching tattoos with my sister. Ive recommended everyone in my family, and lots of friends to them-always with outstanding results! They give great advice will guide your ideas to ensure that you get the best, long-lasting, quality artwork out there. I will be a lifelong customer of Victory!

Not only was my visit to Victory Tattoo a great experience personally, but the staff and artists are very well versed in their craft, having years of experience. The artist was professional, friendly and talented. I was impressed beyond satisfaction with the results. I would recommend Victory Tattoo to anyone whether it be their first time getting some flesh ink or anyone looking to expand their collection. Thank you, Kip and staff, at Victory Tattoo!
POOR jewelry selection & even POORER customer service! I came in to have some jewelry changed. I was in a hurry & didnt look at it until later that eve & it was NOT what I had asked for. I went back the next day & was informed "Thats all I have." No effort whatsoever was made to "make it right" so I just left - having spent $40 for something I didnt want. I will NEVER go back there & will tell everyone I know to not go there!

Derek Parsons at Victory did my first tattoo, it was a memorial tat for my husband and son who were killed in an auto accident on Dec. 3 2009. The tattoo looks great and I was treated with extreme respect and compassion. The shop is very clean and it was just an awesome atmosphere, he put me at ease, did a excellent job and the price was very reasonable. Susan Williams Viroqua, WI.
I didnt have a very good first experience with one of the employees, but after working with Derek the owner, he made my second experience a lot better! I have a very hectic/unpredictable schedule but he patiently worked with me and found a time to make the appointment, then did an amazing job doing a cover up piece!
Ive been going to Derek at Victory Tattoo before he even took over the shop!! He has done numerous tattoos on me and I love them all! I recently had Judy do one as well, and I couldnt be happier with it! Their shop is clean, professional, and very knowledgable! Thanks again!!
Couldnt be happier. Victory Tattoo came very highly recommended by my buddy and I was blown away with my tattoo. The shop is very professional, down to earth and friendly. Derek is super knowledgeable and I will definitely be going back for more!
