Southern Steel, hands down. Everyone has their own opinion, but I think they do much better work. They're friendly and are always attending seminars and conventions to improve themselves.

Southern Steel!!! Their art rocks!!! They are clean and considerate of their patrons. I feel comfortable around the crew because they listen to you when making decisions about body art. I feel that this is a positive enviroment for people of an alternative lifestyle. You don't have to worry about druggies or people coming in "GDing" this or that. Rob Kinsman keeps the place in good order.

I made the mistake of having a tat done at smalltown - I hated it....it wasn't anything like the drawing we discussed and the colors faded really bad......I went to see Rob at Southern Steel and took smalltown's mess and created a work of art that I love and am proud of!

The artists at small town are just that...artists...they all love what they do and they are good at it. At small town you dont have jesus forced on you...small town is a tattoo shop, not a church....perhaps the rednecks of pike county like southern steele better because most of them are oblivious to real art.....rebel flags and bud light emblems are southern steele's specialty.

The guy who runs southern steele is called rob kinman...not kinsman....and small town is also a drug free environment and is very clean and family friendly.....they are both tattoo shops, not churches....youll not find a real tattoo shop with no cursing.....sorry bout your luck....

the guy who runs southernshit is a snake in the grass he pushes his false faith on erveryone around him and doesnt let the real artists at his shop have free reign on their own decicions and freedoms of expressions....smalltown on the other hand is a very good environment those guys are all kinda hateful and short with most people but they dont pretend to be somthing there not and the art is at a much higher level of expertise....even though ritchie at southern steele is a phenomenol artist his boss keeps his abilities at bay.....so if you want a tatoo that looks like a tattoo and not some bullshit piece of crap that looks like a two yr old got a hold of a tattoo machine.....go to smalltown...if yourinto fucked up jesus tats go to southern steel...i mean shit...but considering everyone has the right to make there own decicions...and we live in the middle of the buckle of the bible belt... you all will prolly continue to feed the bellies of the beast...and continue to give money to the wrong people....but really people would u want to get a tattoo at a tattoo shop or a church...and if you do haveto go to ss ask for ritchie

Some of the men in my family has gotten tats at Southern Steel...they loved the tats, the environment, and the guys there...My dads tattoo was Deputy Dawg and they fixed it to have Pike County Deputy Uniform and Hat...It is awesome...Daddy is going back for another on soon...so I think these guys do great work

definatley small town. it is much more comfortable of an environment. southern steele turns people away. if they dont believe in what you want tattooed on you, they wont do it. you cannot pick and choose what to do in a business such as this. isnt the customer supposed to always be right? smalltown artists are better, and theyre always attending conventions as well. in fact, theyre on their way to one in boston this weekend. i, personally, think smalltown is the better place.

I prefer to go to Southern Steel but I can't always get what I want there. I REALLY like Poncho...he does a great job.
No pentagrams there though....too bad.

Since Southern Steel fixed the horrible tat I got from Smalltown I will HAVE to say Southern Steel.

I got a tat at Smalltown and it looked as though an 8 year old inked it on.
Thankfully Southern Steel worked their magic and fixed it perfect.

Southern Steel gets my vote, hands down!
