My son was there yesterday and got his first tattoo. He was very nervous and you & your staff were wonderful! You really did an amazing job with what he wanted. The tattoo looks amazing and he is so very proud of it! He just started paramedic class and is looking forward to becoming a fireman. I am very proud of him and now you have made him more proud & eager with the work you did.
Thankx again for your wonderful work. If/when I decide to get my first tatoo it will be with you!

I just wanted to thank you again for the wonderful job you and your staff did on my tattoo!!! I love it!!! It is so me in every way and it was not as painful as I had thought it would be. Thank you for the beautiful art and now I can’t wait to do more. Once it heals I will post it on my myspace so the whole world can see what wonderful work you did for me. Lots of Love………..MWWWWHHHH

Body Anthology is an awesome place to go for your piercing and tattoos.I went there for 2 tattoos and 4 piercing. They are very professional and explain everything with detail and make you feel comfortable and welcomed. I love how they will recommend what is the best for you and for your comfort. and they will help you with everything you need, from just a simple jewerly change. the jewerly is expensive but its the best and you got to pay for good quality. So I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Body Anthology!!
name: noah comments: You guys are the best arround the clevo area. Definately worth the drive from the east side!
name: Brian comments: Ok, I had been trying to track down Nate for about a year and a half to get my frenum ladder re-done. (had it done at another shop by another piercer and just wasn't straight so I took it out) After pouring over BMEzine. com and talking to everyone I saw with a piercing I determined Bodyworks was the studio and Nate was the piercer...only problem was by time I went there the place was closed. So I put the thought on hold for awhile until I just happened to be on the APP website(safepiercing.org) and saw Nates name and the new shop. I called him up, asked if I could come in he said not a problem and no appointment necessary. My girlfriend and I got there (she was contemplating getting her nipples done) and I asked if I could check out the shop and sterilization room. Nate took us on an in depth tour, showing us the autoclave and clean/dirty sections of the room, as well as fully explaining how they sterilize everything and how often. He even had spore sheets going back 10 years for the autoclave. In the piercing room showed us how everything was organized and safe practices in there(he went through 2 pairs of rubber gloves just showing us around this room). All the while he was answering all mine and my girlfriends questions about what to expect during piercing and anything else we asked. Just a very knowledgeable and friendly guy...much like I heard. We go back up front, fill out a few quick forms, pick your jewelry, and pay. I chose 10 ga 1/2 in barbells for my 3 frenum piercings. (the jewelry cost a little more than I expected, but it was implant grade, internally threaded and has a lifetime warranty, also you purchase bars and balls individually, so if you lose a ball or want a bigger one, you can just get that piece, overall it seemed worth it) Then its back to the piercing room. Nate asked if he should leave the room while I dropped my pants, but I didn't see it necessary since he would be working down there anyways. He washed his hands, pulled a clean, sterilized set of tools, needles and jewelry from their respective locations then draped a paper cloth over my region. He then cleaned/disinfected the area to be pierced. (He changed gloves often throughout all this). He made marks where he thought the piercing should go, and had me check it out with a mirror. We made some adjustments due to my anatomy, double checked everything, then it was needle time. He clamped the skin together to line everything up and reduce the amount of tissue to penetrate, had me take a couple deep breaths, then pushed through. It was a little more pain than I remembered from the first time(this time was larger gauge though) but still wasnt bad...quick sharp pinch, dull burning feeling then its over, like a shot. He corked the needle, slipped the jewelry in(internally threaded is the way to go)while he explained everything he was doing. The next two went much the same way. When he finished up he handed me a mirror to check it out, and it looked awesome. He explained how to care for it, and ! answered a few last questions. We went back up front, Nate printed out an information sheet about what I had done, and how to keep it clean and promote healing etc. and gave me my bag of soap and sea salt I purchased. He asked if I had any other questions, and we were on our way. (My girlfriend decided to not get pierced because she was worried about painbut shes still thinking about going back.) After a few days I started to get some swelling that concerned me(anything potentially risky down there concerns me) so I went back to see Nate and asked him to take a quick look. He was very helpful and got me right in. He said it didnt look bad, and since there was no pain or strange discharge it was probably nothing to worry aboutit was merely the fact I had 3 10ga bars in a relatively close proximity in me. A couple days later, swelling was gone everything was normal again. Its been about a week now, and I just love the way it looks. There has really been no pain(unless I bum! p against something). I am still waiting to try any sex acts(worst par t about the whole experience) because once you start friction and tugging on the piercing it hurts, plus Id rather let it heal up a bit first. To sum up, ********* is a very clean and professional shop(cool theme too). Everyone I talked to there was helpful and nice. Nate really knows his stuff and is great to work with, seems interested in you as a person and not just a job. If you are considering getting any work done, stop in and talk to these guys. I have been considering a tattoo for a bit now, and when Im ready, Ill be going there to get it. Thanks for the great experience guys.
name: Kelly comments: Great place to go to get pierced. I felt to comfortable there because of how clean and professional everyone was. I felt like i was in good hands when i got my surface piercing. Everything was explained to me in great detail to help me fully get an idea of what i was to expect. And that felt good to know that the piercer (Nate) cared that i knew what i was getting myself into and that he didnt see me as just another dollar in his wallet. I most deff see myself getting pierced there again, maybe tattooed there as well.. Keep Up The Great Work!

Professional, sanitary, educated, and friendly! I have gotten many piercings here and I will never go anywhere else!
Posted by: Ryan M., 10/24/2009
I went to Body Anthology yesterday after a friend of mine told me about them. Once i talked to the artist (Matty) i knew i was gonna be taken care of. He knew what i was getting was a challenge due to really tight lines and being on my hand. He certainly lived up to what i've heard about them and what i have seen on their website. I was totally satisfied with my tattoo and he definitely lived up to the hype and prolly went passed it. I would recommend this shop to anyone who wants pure quality and talent on their skin. Ryan M.

I’ve been to Body Anthology twice now and whether It’s a piercing or a tattoo these guys are 100% professional and still make the experience fun.
Posted by: Kelly C., 9/26/2009
As I have told them many times, they are the most professional Body Piercers I have ever come across. The shop smells so clean, it’s cleaner than any hospital I’ve ever been in. From the time you walk in until the time you leave, you know that you are in good hands and that they care about you and the work they have done for you.
Posted by: Tina W., 9/26/2009
The artists there are top rate! They take into consideration your instruction, opinion, and will help in any way they can with your vision! They are the cleanest around! They make you feel like you matter. Matty may be the best around, but the whole staff are THE BEST!
Posted by: Emma R., 9/25/2009
I’ve gotten all of my tattoos there except for one and they are the cleanest place ive ever been and give good advice for certain pericings, other places will just pierce you to get there money and not care one bit. I absolutely love them!!!

Most of my family and friends have had work done by Chico. He can cover up almost any bad tattoo. Tyson is a great piercer. This is the only shop I would go to.
