The guy never even used a clamp. I didn't know he wasn't going to use one, because I closed my eyes. I have had my labret done twice before amongst 9 others therefore, I know a clamp is to be used. I took the other ones out for job issues. I got this piercing done last night while here on vacation in KC. It also did bleed like a b*tch because of not using a clamp. I've never had a piercing bleed like this. I felt him push the needle through one layer at a time. I opened my eyes just to see why it was going through so slow and why it was hurting so bad just to realize he just did the piercing by hand with the needle. Also, after waking up this morning my lip is so swollen....never had this type of swelling the previous two times getting it pierced. or with any other piercing I've had. I slept on my back so I didn't hit it. I cleaned it properly.I know how to care for body piercings, as I've had so many previously. I'm extremely disappointed with this piercing. I just hope it doesn't get infected. Bad Bad Bad.

First off I would like to say that I am a manager at a corperate store, so I work in customer service and know that it isn't that hard to be nice and helpful. Normally I would not say anything bad, infact this is the first review I have ever written.
My first experiance there was not so bad I walked in and this man (the owner) greated me. The two woman behind the counter however actually scowled and rolled there eyes. I brushed it of and bought two swim suits. I was going on a trip to brazil and needed a bunch. Since I really had no help from the people I needed a second opinion so I brought my mom and a friend ( both came with me to Brazil so they needed suits too) Sadly the guy was not there and it was two HOURS away from closing time and we walked in. The woman (wife) actually said "great I wanted to leave early" to her employee that was there. again I brushed it off my mom tried to start a convo with her asking how old her baby on her hip was...her responce? "18 months. What do you want?" It didn't end there she continued to be cross and short with us. Made us feel as if we were intruding on her for asking if we could have a room to try on. She also asked "So are you guy going to be tanning to? because if not I actually can clean those so all i'll have to do is wait for you guys to leave so I can go home" Even with me leaving for brazil in the morning I left all of my things that i was going to buy and started to leave. She said to her staff "ugh they aren't even buying anything"
Oh my gosh! I couldn't believe it! My mom made the mistake of saying "she was so rude" The woman actually started yelling at her. "wait what did you just say!? I was not rude! you don't know what you are talking about! your rude!"
That was it, I told her how I have never been treated so badly in a store I told her of the last time I was there and wanted to talk to a manager. she actually laughed and said her hubby was the owner and if I had a problem I could take it up with him she actually yelled at my mom, treated my friend poorly and was aweful to me. Her hubby tried to apologze but she said "we don't have to apologize we own this place, who cares they r just 3 people" I would NEVER EVER step foot in that place agian if it saved my life and you shouldn't either!
*The only reason there is a star is because it required on for the review.

Best shop and people I have ever seen. You wont find better work anywhere.

I would have to say the cleanest tattoo shop in Kansas City. The wall photos are painted and framed not laminated. Large kings table to sit at while you wait. John Monk has been working on my sleeve and it has all been drawn out by hand and the lines are just perfect. Prices are competitive and you cant beat the piercing price. 20 $ for any piercing and that comes with the ring.

I have typically had good visits to the Sole Patch, but on one occasion I was a bit perturbed with them. I called in early that day and made an appointment for 6:30 as they told me that was the last appointment time they booked since they closed at 7. I repeated back to the person on the phone that I had a 6:30 appointment as I put it in my phone calendar and she agreed with me. I then show up at 6:25 and the doors are locked, a gentlemen comes to the door and it was not Ron and informed me that I was wrong and they don't book any appointments after 6. I explained to him that I had called earlier and even re-confirmed with the lady on the phone about the time and she said 6:30, all he did was tell me I must have been mistaken while looking at me with what a look that said "you are a dumb-ass". So just beware that if you book an appointment past 6 to call before you head up there to make sure they are actually there.

Only have one leg of body suit left and it's in the capable hands of Steven Campbell. In about '81 I met Bert Grimm at one of their former locations when he was in town helping get that place up and running near Westport and Main and Danny and crew are keeping it alive after all these years!

I'm a little bit biased on this one but I think it's the best because the staff is constantly trying to acheive excellence in what they do. Look around at the press and client feedback Sole Patch has receive and you'll see this is true... or stop in and check it out yourself.

These guys are great - I took a concept into John Monk (one of the best known artists in KC) and he drew up a killer tattoo that was better than my original idea I had taken into him. This is the second one I've done there and I'll be going back again.

Notoriously known for being assholes, these guys have the chairside manner of badgers. I've gotten two tattoos from them. The first one should have been my first indication as they overworked some areas and left scarring. The second one had sloppy line work. They have been known to turn people away if they don't like their design, but in living up to their reputation of the McDonalds of Kansas City Tattooing, they will do anything you pick off a wall. If you have a more abstract idea in mind, something maybe even artistic, take yourself to Mercy Seat. Freaks is basically a purveyor of clip art. They don't like to attach their names to anything that might be considered challenging to understand, but if you want a shark jumping through a ring of fire, they're right around the corner of Westport and Broadway.
