VERY DISSAPOINTED. I went to this place because it was close to work and had good reviews. I have a tragus piercing that I needed to get a new ear ring. The last one I had was not the normal type you would get with this kind of piercing; it was just a hook on the back. So, I came here and discussed all this with them, looked at what they had and decided on an earring. They said they would put it in for me as I wouldn’t be able to do it myself, ok I thought.
They went through the process of sterilizing the ear ring and I was very pleased with all that, seemed very clean. After that when he went to put the ear ring in it took longer and hurt more than it did when I originally got it pierced. After it was over I went up to pay and he said it would be $80… $80?!?! When I was looking at the ear rings he said it was $20, now I realize that price was just for the ear ring. I only paid $60 when I originally got it done. This is what they charge to do this piercing and I ALREADY have it pierced! I didn’t say much as I felt like this was partly my fault and decided I should have asked complete total prior so I went ahead and paid.
Then, one week and 1 day later the piercing fell out. The whole purpose of getting this earring was that they said it would not move around or fall out easily if at ever. I went back to the shop the next day and told them what happened. He said they could put another one in. After my last lesson here I asked how much because they had charged me $80 before and it lasted a whole week and I wasn’t pleased considering how much it was and that it fell out a week later. He said he would have to charge me. I was very irritated and said no. I ended up going to a different place and they only charged me $18 and put it in for me! Note, this was not the place I originally got it done at either!
I’m sure they do great tattoo work as all the reviews are very positive but I unfortunately can not recommend this place and feel like they do not stand behind their work. I’m ok with paying more for a good and clean job done but in this case it was not good. It was a total waste of $80 and to top it off the customer service following was horrible.
i am an owner at virtue tattoo. i am sad to read this review! we guarantee satisfaction & strive for perfection We will not stand for jewelry falling out in one week after insertion & will always replace it at no cost. That's our policy and always has been. i fear, our piercer did not recognize you. If he had the opportunity to hear your story/complaint, there would have been no charge. I feel absolutely terrible about this customers experience. Thank you, Lana
The place to go for Tattoos. I got all 3 of my Tattoos there. They are very nice and willing to help you. Cant wait to go back and get one more some time next year.
THE BEST PLACE IN TOWN!!!. Virtue Tattoo is the best shop I have been to. I have been to the most notable tattoo shop in town and they cannot even compare to Virtue Tattoo. They are extremely clean, courteous, caring and just down right AWESOME at Virtue. Everyone in the shop is great. They make you feel welcome and not just another nameless person wanting work done. I have had 6 piercings done by Tim. The piercing room is extremely hygienic and there are no windows in the piercing room walls. The total privacy that gives helps to stay relaxed. Tim also cares about his customers well being more than the amount of money he will make. After my 6th piercing I was planning on my 7th and 8th when Tim told me that he would not do anymore piercings until all of the previous 6 had healed. About 1 more week until Tim will do my 2 new ones!! So far I have had 2 tattoos done by Lana. The tattoo that she drew and put on my foot is my favorite yet. I have 5 others that have been done around Texas and she is by far the best. Lana takes to extra time to make sure that you are positively relaxed and happy with the work done. I am already planning on my next one. Virtue Tattoo is THE place to go for Tattoos and Piercings!!!
lana the great :).
i enjoy getting tattoos in a calm, clean and creative environment....
virtue is all that and more!
lana is amazing, and quick, and fun to talk to!
go see her and you will NOT be disappointed :)

Houston's BEST Tattoo & Piercing in all of Houston. I have had several tats done by Lana Gooding. I can NOT say enough about how awesome she is and how nice their shop is. She is super patient, sweet, takes the time to listen to your ideas and then takes the time to make your dream tat real. She is fast, but very, very professional. I am a perfectionist - I've met my match with Lana. She wants you to be as in love with your ink as possible and will do whatever needs to be done to get you there. I am ecstatic about her work on me. I am super proud and wouldn't have my friends go ANYWHERE else. I have truly enjoyed getting to know Lana and look forward to getting more work done from her in the future. THANK YOU LANA!
THE BEST!. omg,i got a percing from virtue 2 weeks ago on sunday for my birthday i tottaly love it its very clean and the workers are very friendly, i will be going there to get somthing else soon!
Houston's BEST tattoo shop!. Got my first tattoo in this extremely clean shop. My safety was not a concern as it is in a great location and the shop was very sterile, (in a good way)! I explained to Lana what I wanted and she did a fantastic job. When I am ready to get all nine feet of my scars covered, (Yes, I said 9 feet!), it will be Lana at Virtue Tattoo I will seek out to do my work! Thanks Lana.
The best tattoo artists in town!. Come see the best shop in Houston!
LANA ROCKS!!. LET'S SEE I HAD THIS IMAGE IN MY MIND FOR OVER A YEAR AND DID NOT KNOW WHO TO TELL IT TO, TILL I WALKED INTO VIRTUE. I LET LANA KNOW WHAT I WANTED AND SHE BROUGHT HER FREAKIN "A" GAME. MY CHEST PIECE COULDNT HAVE BEEN MORE PERFECT. ALL MY FRIENDS ARE ASKING WHERE I GOT IT AND THEY ARE READY TO GET TATTED UP.
Best Tattoo shop IN THE WORLD!!!!.
Lana has done several tats on me and Tim has pierced me...Not only are they extraordinary at what they do, they are absolutely amazing people. There were never any awkward moments...and I didn't feel like I had to have a friend with me to talk to because as soon as you walk in the door all the employees are your friend. It's like your at home (only cleaner) hangin with friends you've known for years.
The shop is a mix of O.R. cleanliness and museum worthy artwork. You can tell they put a lot of thought into everything all the way down to the lights. And what other tat shop have you been to where the the art is actually framed rather than in clustered together in a bunch of swingin poster frames? All this tells me, they love what they do.
Lana is an exceptional artist-she can take a plain jane idea and turn it into something you would never have imagined! It's incredible.
On the other hand, if you show her exactly what you want she'll do that too. no questions asked. And I know its difficult not to make things better when you're an artist. :-)
I live in San Antonio so when I want some work done, I hop in my car, book one of the cheap hotels right down the street and go straight to the shop.
Oh!!! and they even have filtered water for their patrons! How freakin cool AND eco-friendly is that?!!!
All-in-all: I'll never go anywhere else, no matter where I live. Before I went to Virtue Tattoo I thought I was done with ink, but I've had to reconsider that one!! ;-p
