    I am such a satisfied customer it is just ridiculous. I love this place. I've known about them forever, but have just been too broke. Today I walked in for a nostril piercing, and it looks great. Jen Sumo is such a professional and so much fun to talk to. Great prices. Very clean. They know their stuff. You should totally check them out!!

    The staff at man's ruin made me feel very comfortable when getting my two piercings. They were next to painless and I appreciate all the aftercare advice I was given. All the staff is very professional and the shop's clean clean clean!

  • Exceptional

    Professional, clean, quick and effective. So far I have only had experience here on the piercing side but Jenn is amazing. My rings are perfectly straight and after following my aftercare I have very little to no pain. The art on the inside of the building is also something to be seen. I will recommend this business time and time again.

    I planned on this to be my last tattoo. It will not be after the wonderful work I received from Heather. I didn't even know I could get a tattoo this good at my age. ( I am 44) I thought only people in tattoo magazines got work this beautiful. The tattoo was custom made for me by Heather after meeting and getting a design together. It was important to be customized because this tattoo is for a very lived friend who passed. I am still in awe of the beauty of my work. I also must mention that I have been a nurse for over 20 years and Heather was so meticulous about proper technique. She was very attentive to remaining clean throughout the whole process. I have never seen anything like it outside the hospital. Needless to say anymore except I will be back for another and pass the word around. Oh,I also must mention that we had great conversations and just felt like I've known the girls working there for years. It was just great!

  • Manz Ruin

    One of the best piercing places I've been to! The women are great and after going there I would not trust anyone else to pierce or tattoo me!

    This is the best place ever! I went with my best friend and we both felt totally at ease as soon as we walked through the door. I will never go to another tattoo shop if I can avoid it. It was clean, friendly, had a good vibe, and the nicest people I've met in Asheville. Cannot recommend this place enough!

    Best experience ever. I have been in 2 other shops before and they made me feel uncomfortable, for lack of better words, but the ladies at Mans Ruin were so nice to me and actually listened to what i had to say. I really didnt have a clue on my first tattoo and they made me feel comfortable and relaxed. It was was just an all around great experience and I would recommend this place to anyone. Thanks Again Mans Ruin!

    Amazing shop,amazing work! Jenn and heather are so awesome and cool to be around. We had great conversations and work. My ear projects turned out so precise. I had a triple helix and industrial. The other ear has a conch,anti tragus and a daith. I had a consult with heather too about starting my leg sleeve. I can't wait. I have a few tattoos for her now and can't wait to cover my body. Love you girls! Oh,and my husband is next in line!

  • Amazing Experience

    After I had a wonderful experience getting my tattoo I feel compelled to write a review. I never do this for businesses but I really had an amazing experience. Heather did my tattoo and prior to this I was always afraid to get a tattoo. I was concerned about the cleanliness being in the medical field my whole life. I have to say that Heather was as aware,if not more aware than some of the nurses I have worked with over the years about being clean. The conversation was great and I couldnt have had a better time. I am here to give my 100% testimonial! From start to finish everything was absolutely perfect. The studio was mature and just a well run establishment.I wasnt even considering another tattoo until now. Just great,ladies!

  • Great place, i will come back!!

    This place was great! The ladies were very nice and helpful. The whole studio was beyond clean, it looked like a hospital room. It made feel like not only was i getting an awesome tattoo but I knew that they didn't cut corners. I dont mind paying a little extra if i know that it is clean and safe. i would 100% recommend this place.
