If you want to get pierced, see LeAnne. She is amazing. I have 7 piercings, all done by different piercers, and my experience with LeAnne was by far and away the best. Wish I had found her sooner to do my other piercings! I came to her for my most coveted and also (to me) most frightening piercing, my tongue, and I could not be happier with the results. Prior to the piercing, I visited the shop to meet her and ask several questions, which she graciously answered all, and was wonderfully knowledgeable and sincerely friendly. Then, a couple of days later I returned for the piercing and asked even MORE questions, lol, and she also answered them all very well (shes so patient and kind). She made me feel so comfortable, even for as nervous as I was, and the piercing was lightning fast! She got that needle through my tongue faster than a different piercer got through my ear lobe, I am not joking. And she positioned it absolutely perfectly for the anatomy of my mouth. (Keep in mind, shes been doing this for 10+ years, this lady knows what shes doing and its so obviously that she loves it. She has it down to an art and a science.) I just went back to her yesterday to get my starter jewelry changed out, and I am sooooo thrilled with the way my piercing looks. It healed quickly and beautifully and is by far my absolute favorite piercing!! If I ever decide to get any more, LeAnne is my woman! Go get poked by LeAnne!!
I just got my ears pierced here, and from my positive experience, I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get pierced or a tattoo. Although I myself did not get a tattoo while here, seeing from the competent staff and good environment, I am very confident their tattoos would be just as great an experience. When looking for a place that would meet my standards, Crazy Monkey Tattoos was the only place I felt I would get great service at. Many, many positive experiences from other customers and the staff had been doing their job for many years. Once I actually stepped foot into Crazy Monkey Tattoos, I was very pleasantly surprised at how clean and kept up the area inside the building looked. The floor was clean, the display cases neat looking, and neat looking inside. Also, I was greeted by a very welcoming voice to come up to their main area, this was also nice. After meeting Leanne, my piercer, I felt very comfortable. The upstairs was very clean, they were organized, and she was very competent while preparing my piercings and doing it. She also made sure I knew the aftercare needed to keep my piercings clean and made sure I could contact her at any time if I needed to. Very happy with the service I received here, would highly recommend this place to anyone!
I got pierced here a year ago, and I can say that it was a good experience. I waited to write my review so that I could see how my piercings healed, since I got inner conch piercings (1 in each ear) which take longer to heal. The jewelry (I chose bar over ring, due to its advantages while healing) was significantly long enough to account for any swelling although I didnt have any, however in retrospect I wish that Crazy Monkey Tattoos used internally threaded jewelry for new piercings -- my bars were not internally threaded at least. Other than that, my piercer was extremely professional and I felt that the piercing environment was sterile and clean. It was easy to communicate with her, and I felt good being able to talk to her for opinion on where to exactly get pierced, showed her a picture of the jewelry I intended to use once it healed, and so on. She gave me a care sheet, and she was nice enough to write down the answer to a question I had about the name of a product since I knew Id forget otherwise. I intend on going here to get pierced in the near future!
I did not care for this place. They were very unprofessional. We walked in told them what we wanted done and they ALL walked outside and had a good 45 minute smoke break. After they decided to come back and do the piercing, the piercer acted as if she had better things to do and was in a hurry. She explained some aftercare instructions to my sister and then we left. The next morning my sister was bleeding excessively and when she called to see what was wrong, the piercer told her that she may have pierced in the wrong spot or through a vein and that she didnt expect it to stop bleeding. She never offered her any money back or anything. Just plain rude. If you had seen my sister after the piercing, you would have been pretty upset too...my sister was told she could have bled out in her sleep! Honestly not impressed and will never go here again and never give anyone good reviews on this place!
These guys are awesome! The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. I went in for 2 daith piercings and LeAnne was the one who did it. She was quick, easy, and professional. The piercings were painless and put in quickly. She was also very informative and knowledgeable and just one fantastic lady! She helped me out a couple days later by replacing my jewelry to clear retainers so I would not get in trouble at my once a month second job that doesnt allow them to show. Again, cant say enough good things about this place!
Omg!!! I LOVE crazy Monkey AND their Staff!! EVERYTIME I need something fixed (Like my nose ring came out and wouldnt go back in) They Are ALWAYS There for me AND Never charge me because of their LOYALTY To their clientele. I can Stress it enough how much I trust them. You only get one body in this life time and when it comes to all things Pierced or tattoos I DEFINETLY will be back here!!!!!! My personal favorite is Leanne.... I TRUST her and she is TOTALLY AWESOME AND Gentle!!!!

I had my tongue piercing done at this place. The overall shop is excellent, but customer-piercer communication is poor. I asked the guy if the tongue ring was long enough for when my tongue swells, he said; yes. Well I took all aftercare procedures. 4 days later when my tongue started healing it swollen so much that it started bleeding and had to take out the whole thing out of my tongue because the upper ball was doing a lot pressure on my tongue...
I came there today to get my septum pierced, and I enjoyed my experience. The woman working the front desk was very nice & personable. Theres a lot of variety when it comes to jewelry. I only had to wait, MAYBE 5 minutes. My piercer, Kerri, was very nice and did a great job explaining everything to me, from how it was going to feel all the way to the after care. I definitely recommend this place. On top of everything else, the price was GREAT :)

The staff at Crazy Monkey are very helpful and knowledgeable. The piercer, Kerri, is confident and talented, and she made me feel comfortable while I was getting microdermals (even though I was nervous when I first got there). The artists worked together to make sure that my experience was perfect. Their prices are reasonable. Over al, the atmosphere, the staff, and the positive and caring attitude made my experience worth writing about!
