Tattooing is an art form and form of body modification where a pigment is inserted into a skin to change its color permanently. It is a very old tradition and today is more popular and socially acceptable than ever. They were marks of pride, class, beauty, shame and methods of healing. Today, people still wear tattoos but as a way of self-expression
Our goal is to provide our clients with the highest quality tattoos, in a relaxed, friendly, and safe setting. We go out of the way to stay on the cutting edge of tattooing technology, from the equipment and pigments used, to the processes used to apply them.
Whether you are looking for color or black and grey, traditional or new school, cartoons or photo-realism, cover-ups or reworks, we strive to make sure that you get the tattoo you want.
No one thinks at the time they are getting a new tattoo, “I’m going to regret this someday,” but inevitably, sometimes people do. We offer tattoo removal services should you have a change of situation or a change of heart. We can also correct tattoos should you have had a bad experience in the past or completely cover an old tattoo with a new.
We look forward to serving you and your future tattoo needs.

What should I get? And where?
We encourage you to give serious thought to these questions. You can get whatever you want, and whatever your artist is willing to do. When considering the location of your tattoo, keep in mind what you do for work the social circles you are in. Tattoos are far more socially acceptable than in times past, but you still might want to consider placing your tattoo where it can be comfortably concealed should there be a reason for you to do so.
Is it OK to get a tattoo if I'm sick?
Do not subject your body (or your tattoo artist) to abuse if you are feeling under the weather. You should only come in for a tattoo when you are 100% healthy so your body has the strength it needs to heal your new art.
Where can I find inspiration?
Inspiration is everywhere! We have examples you can look through but don’t limit yourself to that. Bring in examples of imagery you like and have one of our artists create a custom design for you.
How will tanning affect my tattoo?
You know tanning is bad for skin health but it’s also bad for your tattoo. UV rays dull and fade the ink used in your tattoo. Protect your tattooed skin just as you do the rest of your body – with an appropriate SPF.
Can I shave an area that I've just tattooed?
Eventually, yes, but you must first allow your skin to fully heal which can take several months.
Are tattoo kits safe?
These days you can buy just about anything on the internet, including tattoo kits. Tattooing is a profession that requires training, practice and skill. Do not risk your health to an artist without professional-grade equipment and professional training.
