Excellent work. I went in for my very first tattoo the beginning of April and I was extremely nervous. Flaco picked up on that and did everything he could to make the experience amazing. We spent the whole 3 hours talking geek stuff and I walked away with a gorgeous tattoo on my shoulder as a tribute to my aunt and grandmother, both of whom are breast cancer survivors.
I was so impressed with the work that when I was in Atlanta again over Father's Day, my bff & I went back in (she'd had some previous work done there) and both got script tats from Mark over the space of two days.
All the artists and various employees we talked to were fantastic and extremely friendly, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone in the area. If you're doing a bigger piece, set an appointment and talk to them about a budget. Flaco did an amazing job with my budget and I got a great tattoo that would have easily cost me 2-3 times as much somewhere else.
Great Piercings AND Tattoos!!! – I went to get a tattoo on my back and while I was getting tattooed my girlfriend got her lip pierced. We both had a lotta fun and both the piercing and the tattoo turned out amazing!
perfect 10! – There isn's a single thing I would change about my tattoo or my experience at All or Nothing Tattoo. In fact.... when my tax return comes back, that's the first place I'm going!!
Repeat Customer – I've always gotten my tattoo work from these guys! Ive been both a walk-in and Ive booked appointments as well. EVERY artist that comes through there is just INSANELY good at what they do. Im booked now with Brandon Bond and look forward to getting started on my back piece from him in just a couple months!
BEST SCRIPT EVER! – I went to All or Nothing as a walk-in to get some script that was very important to me. I was helped right away and 30 minutes later I was getting my tattoo!! Its the most amazing custom script I've ever seen on anyone, I mean... its absolutely BEAUTIFUL! Thanks All or Nothing!!!
I'm SOLD!! – I made an appointment with Mike McMahon, whom I had never met before, but had seen his work. He had NO PROBLEM interpreting what I saw in my head into an even better reality... my tattoo is AMAZING!!! I will definitely come back to All or Nothing again!
Bad experience a couple years ago, I'm over it. – I'm 50/50 on this... I love B.B.'s work, and when I moved to Smyrna a few years ago, I couldn't WAIT to get worked on there. I met the apprentice, John, (AWESOME ARTIST & INK SLINGER) told him of a special back piece that I wanted done. I have a kid brother doing Life Without Parole in Missouri. As kids, he grew up always wanting to be a cowboy, I grew up always wanting to be a biker. As it turned out, prior to my brother's arrest, he WAS a cowboy, he owned a ranch in Missouri. And, I am a biker... I explained the tattoo on my back would be David Mann's "Ghost Rider" painting with me on my Harley and my kid brother on his horse. I explained that it was a tribute to our parents who encouraged us both to fulfill our dreams. John introduced me to an artist, I believe his name was Chris. He sat down and I went over what I wanted. He told me that he would need photos of the bike, me, my brother & his horse. We downloaded a copy of "Ghost Rider". He made me leave a deposit and told me to come back in 3 weeks, he would have it drawn up for my review and we would get started. I COULDN'T WAIT... The longest 3 weeks EVER. I was gonna get my dream ink done in BRANDON BOND'S SHOP!!! After 3 weeks, I went in 1/2 hour before my appointment time, and Apprentice John met me at the door. Come to find out, the "artist" that I had an appointment with, took a walk-in that was gonna take a couple hours!! As if my appointment & deposit didn't mean a f*cking thing!! So, my lady-friend & I sat there for 2 hours waiting. Then, when he was done with the walk-in, he must've told Apprentice John to "stall 'em", because it was well over ANOTHER hour before I insisted that Apprentice John get the guy out front to meet with me. Now I was pretty pissed off. After another rant, John walked back and, after ANOTHER 30 minutes, Apprentice John came to the front of the shop with his head down... He started off with "SPIDER, I'm sorry that you're upset... Remember, this is just a TEMPLATE for us to get an idea if we got it right..." I could tell that he was ashamed. I insisted that he hand me the paper that he was hiding behind his back. Once I saw it, I understood why he was embarrassed. This "artist" forced John to walk out front and present to me, what looked like a poorly drawn cartoon of a motorcycle. Nothing at ALL like "Ghost Rider", no horse, nothing. He knew to stay in the back of the shop cowering. I was WAY BEYOND f*cking pissed. THEN, he made Apprentice John tell me that my deposit was NON-REFUNDABLE!! The jack-off didn't do a friggin' thing for the 3 weeks, and then tried to pull off this stunt after making me wait, even though I had an appointment, for what was now coming up on 3 hours!!! What an amazing prick this guy was!! I asked Apprentice John if it was my explanation? Maybe I didn't explain how important this piece was?? I was LIVID. I wanted to beat the LIVING SH!T outta this A$$HOLE. But, if you know Apprentice John, he had a way of just calming the situation and making you feel like he would make everything alright...LOL!! I walked away from AON that evening with a friend in John, and a bitter taste in my mouth for AON. Later that year, I went to a party that Brandon was throwing there, tried to get an audience with Brandon to tell him about my experience, but I wasn't able to get near him... I was told that he would see me, so I sat down & waited for about an hour. I finally gave up waiting. After all this, I STILL love to see Brandon's work. He's a BRILLIANT artist. As is John!! That's the reason for the 2 stars, BRANDON'S TALENT and the AWESOMENESS of Apprentice John! My opinion is that Brandon should keep better tabs on what goes on in his shop. Apprentice John made up the deposit I put down by just being a good friend & my back STILL doesn't have my dream tattoo on it.
Best Tattoo Shop – I love this shop. They are extremely friendly and take good care of their clients. I will be sending all my friends there. I can not wait to return to get some more stuff added to my lower back tattoo
Amazing Artists, impossible to book an appointment – I guess they named it "ALL or Nothing" because that is exactly what you get, either a really bad ass tattoo or absolutely nothing. I'm very impressed with Brandon Bond's work and I don't want to get another tattoo unless it's done by a very skilled artist and I've been trying to set up an appointment with Brandon Bond for over a month now and only to get the run around from everyone up there. Nicole, Brandon's assistant, doesn't respond EVER. When you call them they tell you to just e-mail her again and wait. Still doesn't respond... Very frustrating. I understand they are really busy and obviously they aren't hurting for any business but if I was Brandon Bond I would make sure my staff booked as many appointments as possible no matter how far out they may be, because they require a $500 deposit. That's alot of immediate cashflow he must be missing out on because I'm guessing there have to be alot of other people going through what I am, which are $500 a pop without even having to poke their skin. I wonder if he knows his employees are being slack or maybe he doesn't want to book anymore appointments, if that's the case then I think he should post that he is not taking any new clients. Website says it's very easy to get an appointment set up, completely untrue. I have nothing against these people, I actually hope they will contact me to set up an appointment and I can delete this post or exchange it to a more positive one.

I ask you one question.........you are considering committing to wearing a piece of art for the rest of your life.....why not wear the finest?
I currently wear nearly 200 hours myself.........am I satisfied?...well the work and artists have been featured in print and video a dozen times, I am stopped on a daily basis with questions and praise..........yes, I actually couldn't express enough praise for Brandon, Nicole and the entire staff, they are truly world class!
