This is a message of thanks I sent to Matt X Gillespie, that gives a true account of my experience with Infamous Ink and the crew there. I cannot recommend them highly enough!

"Hey Matt, this is J...ulie, who you did the Daith piercing for last night.

Just a quick heads up, no migraines or eye pain. I'm following the aftercare instructions carefully and there is no sign or infection or rejection, and with all my previous piercings and the staples, my entire ear would be red hot and swollen and very painful and by day 2 fully infected and needing to be removed.

This is all so promising and I want to thank you for helping me out and also thank you and Iris for taking the time to talk to me about why my old piercings likely got infected and letting me know it wasn't my ear being too small or other garbage excuses.

All I feel in the way of pain is like having a small bruise when I'm rotating the piercing for cleaning it.

I'll keep you up to date, but I'm just so excited and wanted to share that with you.

After I get Dallas and my tattoo squared away hopefully next month, I hope I can have you do an industrial on me and maybe a tragus later. I feel quite addicted to piercings and tattoos and will definitely want more!

You are definitely in the right career and have an amazing talent. I'm not generally the type to just do something without taking time to weigh pros and cons, but you and Iris had my confidence up and I only had something to gain. It was extremely kind of you to do this at that price and give me the spray as well, but you've got a loyal customer now!

I'm going on and on, sorry for the novel, I hope you have had a great day! Words can't express my thanks."

I have suffered from migraine/migraine-like headaches for 20 plus years. Mostly right-sided headaches with intense pain, auditory and visual sensitivity, and debilitating nausea that it seemed at no amount of Tylenol, BC Powder, Migraine Excedrin, or even hydrocodone would alleviate. All I could do was get in bed and pray that I would fall asleep and wake up with no headache. At times, I would think about going to the ER but knew I wasn't capable of getting myself there. The slightest move caused intense pain and nausea. Instead, I would just pray for sleep.
I read articles and began taking CoQ10, magnesium, and B12. Still migraines. My doctor advised me that no prescription meds really helped. He had done studies on migraines as he suffered from them himself. He recommended taking a combo of Tylenol and ibuprofen which for me worked occasionally.
I read about the daith piercing. The results were mixed, but I decided to give this a try. I went to Infamous Ink and had Matt X give me a right daith piercing. Two weeks went by, and no migraines. The third week, I developed a headache, but it had migrated to my left side and was easily resolved with Tylenol. I immediately decided to have Matt pierce my left ear as he had suggested I get both pierced.
The day I was to go for my left daith piercing, I woke up at 6 a.m. with a left-sided headache. I took Tylenol; no relief. I ate lunch and took some Migraine Excedrin; I still had a headache. On the way to Waco, it intensified, and I began to experience mild nausea. I was still able to function and drive myself and my niece to Waco. Matt X pierced my left ear-daith; immediately the pain and nausea were gone. In celebration, I had him give me a badass conch piercing in my right ear. I was able to enjoy the rest of my afternoon with Sadey instead of being in bed praying for relief.
Matt X told me that 90% of the people who he had done the daith piercings on have been a success. Day 4 and no headaches. No even a twinge that before would have had me reaching for the Migraine Excedrin. I just can not put into words how grateful I am that I don't have to make sure I have a bottle of Migraine Excedrin with me at all times. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Matt X and Infamous Ink!!! Holes in Bodies!!!!

I have followed Zac "Lefty" from his little shop in Lorena, to the shop on Franklin and now here. These guys are honest, clean and take pride in what they do. I've been tattooed by Zac, Jimmy and Case...y, pierced by Matt and Tori and have never been let down. I will be a "forever" customer and will always recommend you guys. See you soon to start my sleeve!!! See More

In the past couple years I have spent a portion of my income at this shop, and every penny was worth it. James has always taken what I wanted and put his touch on it and made me forever greatful. His is my most complemented work. I am honored to carry his art on my body. Shelby has given me a beautiful gypsy. Who is a show stopper.
I highly recommend Matt for piercings or his apprentice tori. They both are honest and won't give you something they think won't work with your body.
The guys and tori have become family. Infamous will forever be my tattoo home� thanks lefty and chonna for picking some awesome people to work at your shop.

We absolutely love everyone at the shop there,myhusband won a drawing and came out mind blown on how amazing the tattoo Zac did for him came out. He and I were there a few weeks ago to get tongue pier...cings by Matt and I was the only one who got one since hubby couldn't. Well Matt did awesome with my tongue piercing but since my hubs couldn't get it I decided to take mine out. I love how nice everyone there is and I recommend them to anyone and everyone. My daughter loved the tattoo and loved how they allow kids there and thought it was cool Zac played a movie:) God bless you an great work everyone! See More

I had my daith done yesterday (January 17, 2018) by Ms. Torri! She was amazing!!! The piercing didn't even hurt!!! All I felt was some pressure and that was it!! She made me feel so at ease and she di...dn't draw the process out at all! After she pierced my ear I told her I loved her because it was completely painless lol!! Thanks again Torri!! You're amazing and come completly recommended :) everyone else there was very knowledgeable and very sweet and welcoming !!! Highly recommend this place!!^^ See More

I got a tattoo on my ankle by Dallas and he did an amazing job! He really got the little details perfectly and made sure it will hold up well over the years despite being such a small, detailed piece.... Very reasonable prices too, for tattoos and piercings (my friend got pierced). Wish this place weren't 1,000+ miles from home or I'd make this my go-to shop! Definitely will return here next time I'm in town! See More

My mom and I got matching tattoos done by Shelby yesterday, and he was awesome! It was my mom's first tattoo and he made her feel very comfortable and he did fast, great work! I've also had mine and m...y daughter's ears pierced by Tori, and I really liked her too! She was very patient with my daughter when she got scared after having her first ear done! Everyone I've encountered here has been wonderful! See More

I celebrated my 18th birthday at Infamous Ink last night and Zac Lefty Colbert and Chonna Colbert made the experience amazing!!! I was very nervous, but Zac was so confident I knew I would be happy my tattoo, and I was! They made sure I had the best first-tattoo experience and I cannot thank them enough! I highly recommend Zac for tattoos! I will definitely be going to him when I get my next tattoo! See More

My mother, sister, and myself all came in for piercings. My sister had her lobes for the first time since childhood (where they were severely infected). She was terrified. Tori did an outstanding job ...and we had a blast! I live out of town and will definitely be coming back for my future work! See More

I am new to the area and researched shops and found Infamous. I went in on Friday afternoon spoke with Shelby about getting a piece done. Went back Sunday and he exceeded my expectations and was very ...thorough. I will definitely be back for more! � See More

My headaches have progressively gotten worse. Sounds, lights and motion would hurt so bad I would end up physically sick. I contacted Matt and he responded fast and gave me all the info I need. I went... in with the start, to what I knew, would be a bad migraine and the minute he put the jewelry in, it quit. Matt should just grow his hair out and rename himself Jesus 😂
On a more serious note, Matt seriously is the only one I’ll trust to put a hole in my body. He’s professional and super nice!!!
Seriously Matt, thank you! 🙏🏻
