I allowed Nate Lientz to stay in my home for two months.  Mr Lientz is a tattoo artist by trade. He offered to perform tattoo services for myself an my wife in exchange for a place to live for a while. We allowed him to perform tattoo parties to raise money during one of these tattoo parties Mr. Lientz offered to tattoo me as payment in trade for staying in my residence. I had picked a design and location for the tattoo. Mr Lientz then tattooed me as agreed. However the tattoo turned out to be very bad as Mr Lientz was really too tired at that point to render services. Several days past and I discused with him working on and fixing the problems with the tattoo. He stated that it would not be a problem but that it needed a few days to heal before preforming more work.

Mr Lientz stayed several more weeks in my home during this time he also started a tattoo on my wife's back. Shortly after this it was discovered Mr Lientz was stealing my wifes medication. [continued below]....
..... He disapeared from our home after confronting him about this behavior.  It has now been six months and after repeated promises to fix and complete the work for myself and my wife he now refuses to fix my tattoo or complete the work on my wife's tattoo. I will now have to go to a professional tattoo artist to have my tattoo fixed and my wife's tattoo completed. Mr Lientz is far from a true professional and far from a true friend. Beware he has a history of offering his services in trade and freeloading and stealing money and medication from people who show him kindness.

There is no truth when dealing with Nathan Lientz

AUTHOR: Emily - (United States of America)

My name is Emily Nevinski, Formerly Emily Lientz. Nathan is my ex husband. I do not know Mr. Jones or his wife, BUT i do know that what they are saying about Nate is not far off from his character. Nate is a con artist to say the least... I was married to Nate for 4 years, 3 1/2 of them being the worst years of my life. It didnt start out that way. Things changed quickly after our wedding. Nate started using Vicoden, way more than i knew. It changed him, he became aggressive and violent, a methodical liar, a thief, a free loader, and before i knew i was married to someone i didnt know anymore, who had become an addict. One day i was at home and there was a knock on the door, and i answered it to federal postal investigators. They informed me my husband had committed insurance fraud, helping embezzle 2.1 MILLION dollars from Met-life insurance company. I was angry, but heard him out, went to federal court with him, he ended up having to pay back 2% of what was embezzled. He was on probation which he violated a couple of times, but never ended up in prison (too bad). After the insurance fraud deal, He cause us to lose our house by buying Vicoden with our mortgage money, which ended up in us having to live in my parents basement. This is were it starts getting ugly and worse. Nate starts physically assaulting me, in front of my parents, and a couple of times while we were at work at a tattoo shop in Rochester Hills, Michigan. At this time he is so addicted and high he doesnt care who witnesses his actions. These assaults lead to his arrest on numerous occasions, he also did 2 stints in rehab because of these assaults and the drug use. My parents paid for the court ordered rehab both times. Once out of rehab for the last time, Nate started stealing my medications that were prescribed to me. Once he took a whole bottle of 30 xanax from me, he must of taken at least 20 of them at once. I called the cops, when they got to my parents house and started questioning him about the missing pills, he couldnt even talk straight, They decided to escort him out of the house, which he fell down some stairs repeatedly in front of the officers. SO they knew he was on something. When they took him they told him not to return to the property, He manipulated my parents into letting him back in, even though i had stated i was divorcing him. When he moved back in he was going to drug counseling and was supposed to be clean, I let him use my car to go to one of his meetings, and 5 hours later i get a phone call that my car was totaled. That tool went to his meeting, left to go score some dope, got high, was driving my car home and crashed into the back of an old couple while he was all f**ked up on drugs, and totaled my car. He put me in the hospital for a nervous break down, and when i got out of the hospital, Nate had stolen my cell phone, My paycheck i had just cashed before i went in, almost $500.oo, and called my job and caused my to lose my job because i was "mentally unstable". After all this, My parents kicked me out and let con artist Nate continue to live there. He ended up being admitted into the hospital shortly after, and told me he was dying and had cancer, come to find out he could have died because his prescription drug use had screwed up some of his arteries, shrinking them so they didnt function properly. So basically they had to gut him and and make new arteries out of whatever spare parts he hadnt f**ked up. Note his big scar on his abdomen. Once he got out of the hospital he continued to live with my parents. He started stealing my dads oxycontin and was stealing my nephews adderall. Still my poor parent, being conned by this con artist, turned a blind eye and continued to let him free load, He eventually sucked my parents dry, taking them for well over $20,000.oo before moving on to some other dumb woman named Dawn that he mooched off of until she figured out what he was all about. He had my parents believing i was psycho and i was the one stealing from them, and myself. It took them 2 years to figure out it was him the whole time, because he was that good of a manipulator!! Nathan is the lowest form of life their is, and anyone who meets him better run the other way

Nathan used to be a really good tattoo artist, until the drugs took over, now he will do anything for a fix, he will tell you anything to get whatever you have that he wants. 17 years as an artist?? more like 9 as an artist and 8 as a bona fide con artist scratcher looking for a fix and a free ride. He will have you prepay for a tattoo he has no intentions of doing, and he will either bolt on you and blow you off, or he will do the shittiest job ever. He also owes the IRS over $5,000, which they are threatening to seize my house for...So hide some more Nate Lientz, cause when i find you, The IRS wont be far behind!

The Truth of The Matter

AUTHOR: Kristin - (USA)

The truth is a funny thing, there's your side of a story, my side of the story and then there's the truth. The truth in this case is that Mr. Jones was under the influence at the time of this tattooing. He and his wife have an ax to grind with Mr. Lientz and unfortuantely Mr. Lientz has fallen into thier sights. Mr. Lientz has an impeccable work history and reputation. He also has an extensive portfolio of his art and his creations of which many people are happy with his work. I know this because I was a witness at the time of the tattooing. I know for a fact that Mr. Lientz was recovering (and is still recovering) from a battle with cancer. He was weak and in a vulnerable place at the time he was staying with the Jones. They took advantage of a friend in need so that they could get what they could from him. I know this because the wife of Mr. Jones happens to be my best friend. I was witness to Mr. Jones and Mrs. Jones going and getting him from up north. I know why they went and got him and it wasn't because Nate Lientz asked them. I have no reason in which to lie or fabricate a rebuttal to Mr. Jones report, other than it was just wrong. I have a tattoo by Mr. Lientz that was done the same day as Mr. Jones and I am very happy with the results. He was nothing but professional and followed all the procedures that a safe, reputable, and talented tattooist is required to do while practicing his trade. I researched Mr. Lientz and looked at his prior work before finally deciding on getting a tattoo. I did not choose unwisely. I think the best thing that Mr. Jones and Mrs. Jones can do is find better things to do than to attempt to ruin a man's reputation simply because they are angry at him about personal matters.

AUTHOR: zydrate - (United States of America)

i am nathan lientz and was taken in one week after a two month cancer stay in the hospital by a hischool "friend" michelle jones.her husband and herself drove cross country to help me thru my rehabilitation. upon arrival to alabama i was pressured day in and out to tattoo mr jones and wife. seeing the condition i was in,why wuld u want a tattoo from someone on copious amounts of PRESCRIBED meds? also why wuld someone with copious amounts steal piddly bipolar meds that SOMEONE surely needs? mr jones is just upset that i have ruined his liasions with his wifes former friend, just yesterday we witnessed mr jones carousing the former flings neighborhood.yes we documented said persons tag numbers, as he sped away.funny seeing its out of his way to cruise that section of town to get home from work. i have been a reputable tattoo artist for 17 yrs now, with NOT ONE complaint except from this jilted ginger. i have many accreditations and certificates of completion in bloodbourne pathogens and red cross cpr, as req by mich, and n.c. dept of health. mr jones is a tattoo virgin who knows nothing about tattoos and was waned not to drink before the procedure, did he listen? there were witnesses who will come forth to redeem my virtue im sure.also mr jones has to be asked the question, has he had any problems with his wifes FULL backpiece which was started the same day? and is he just upset that he has to pay to have it completed because he refuses to let me claim my property that is at his house. donot offer friendship and help just for personal gain in the future. and remember all...threefold
