    Got my nipples pierced. They guy who did my piercing was amazing. I believe his name was Ryan. I barely felt anything. I suggest if anyone wants a piercing, this is the place to go. $50 for both is great. Most places want more for just 1. Awesome staff as well.

    Had an ear cartilage piercing. They were knowledgeable, experienced and reassuring. It's been a couple weeks and i have had no issues. The staff at checking were informative, quick and professional. The office was uniquely themed and clean as well as the procedure rooms, very nice, sanitized and upscale.

    I have been getting tattoos at Dave and Melissa‘s shops for 11 years now! Atmosphere is amazing. Artists are absolutely amazing. Staff is amazing. I can’t say enough good things about this place. If you are in the area, go visit them. You will not be disappointed.

    Alrighty people, listen up! This is this place! This is the place you come to if you want a friendly, clean, cool vibe and all around great experience!! :) Allow me break it down..... I was in town for a girls weekend getaway and decided I'd like to try and find a place that could do a hand tattoo for me. I looked up a few places and read reviews. Thought I'd give Collective Tattoo a shot. So, my best friend and I walked through the door and were immediately greeted with incredible hospitality. Chit chatted with owner, Dave, as well as some of the front desk staff who were very warm welcoming. I love good banter and Dave was great! He definitely gave us a good laugh. Moving forward, this place is not only staffed with friendly and inviting people, Collective Tattoo is super clean.....that goes for the bathrooms as well. These employees are on top of their game! Also, someone knew what they were doing when it came to decorating this place! Everything oozed coolness including the ceiling and ceiling fans. Yep....you read that correctly. The saloon doors at the entrance to the hallways are a definite YES as are the heavy duty barn doors at every studio entrance. The entire vibe of Collective Tattoo is just badass! I've been in a ton of shops (in many states) that were nice but this shop by far, takes the cake. While waiting for my appointment, I decided to get a piercing I've wanted for a while. I saw Ryan for this. Great guy. Very friendly and informative about the piercing I was getting. I will definitely be seeing him next time I'm in town. My tattoo experience....hands down (as cheesy as it may sound) was wonderful! Dave set me up with Michael and I'm so glad he did. Michael is not only superbtalented but personable too. We could have sat in silence while Michael worked his magic, but we didn't. Nope! We chat chitted the entire time. Great conversation and I really enjoyed him. When he was finished, I took a look at the finished product. IT'S AMAZING AND I'M IN LOVE WITH IT! I have definitely found my shop as well as my artist. What an overall amazing experience! Go, check them out. You won't be disappointed. (Piercing and tattoo aren't completely healed in the picture)

    By far my favorite Tattoo/Piercing spot in Virginia Beach. The team is so professional and talented. The minute you walk in they are super welcoming. I love the esthetics of the studio. They know how to move walk-ins pretty fast too.Upon first impressions, the studio is very well decorated and laid out inside. They really thought of every single detail of the studio. Every artist has their own room. All the rooms have huge barn doors. The artist gets to decorate their own rooms. In the back is huge drawing room for the artist with access to several restrooms. In the front there is a public computer for people to search for designs. There is also ample amount of seating inside and outside.My husband and I did walk-ins for ring finger tattoos. They really get walk-ins moving quickly so you won't be waiting long. The minute I walked in there were 6 people ahead of me but they were able to give me an estimated time frame and put me in the system so that they could text me when they were ready for me. I was able to leave the studio and still keep my place in line. They estimated 2 hours so the minute I came back I got my text which was really on point.Chipi was an experienced artist new to the studio. He drafted up my vision and it really matched what I was envisioning. He was very professional, very cool to talk to and his work was on point.While I was waiting for my husband to get his tattoo, I watched them quickly get folks in and out. I was able to talk to the front desk and ask about piercing and such and they were so nice and informative all while having clients.I love this studio I don't think I'll go anywhere else but here.

    Before I started going to The Collective I went to another artist who was good but not communicative. I can say for every artist I have spoken to or come into contact with, they’re always on their A game and know exactly what the hell is going on and will definitely let you know every form of information you need. Michael in particular takes care of me but I would recommend their entire crew because everyone brings something special to the table. The front desk crew is amazing and polite all the time and will always greet you with a smile. I can say for as long as I am going to be getting tattoos I would recommend taking a stop at The Collective, they’re kind, genuine, and professional.Services: Nose piercing

    I've been to The Collective a handful of times (to get my ear pierced a few years back, and 2 tattoos by Michael now) and this has quickly become my favorite tattoo shop in the area. All staff from the front desk, to the piercer I had, to the owner and all of the tattoo artists that I've met while there, are super helpful, professional, friendly and kind. My experience with staff alone has me recommending this place to all of my friends who want to get tattooed. Not to mention the beautiful decor and comfortable seating in the waiting area. They also have a gorgeous selection of body jewelry. Michael is doing some killer work and he is a blast/so easy to work with, so you'd better get on his books fast! The Collective is a local gem; I can't wait to come back for the next one.Services: Tattoos
